We just got back from two nights in the turret suite -- a room like no other you're likely to find. From your bedroom you go up a flight of circular stairs to a room that is all windows overlooking the bay, complete with sofa, chairs, refrigerator and a telescope to watch the boats drift by.
The bed was great and the bath superb. A tub in the turret suite allows you to soak while looking out the window. There are a couple of short walks around the grounds and a beautiful stretch of the legs along the ocean for the ambitious.
As interesting as this place is architecturally it is service that really shines here. These are either people who are exceptionally well trained or people who actually care, or both.
Breakfast, including a fabulous lobster hash and French press coffee, cannot be beaten. We've stayed in Newport at some other great B&Bs and another highly ranked hotel but the long history of this place holds up against anyone, and not just in Newport.
