We stayed in a beach front cottage, which was a great choice for us. The room is a little small, but very cute. You walk out the back door onto your deck and have a very pretty view of the small private beach. You can walk off your deck down to the beach in about 30 sec. It's like have your own little beach right in your back yard. We loved it. The hotel does offer room service to the cottages and they are very accommodating. We had dinner at the restaurant one night after enjoying a drink on the adirondack chairs on the lawn at sunset and really enjoyed it. It's only a short drive to downtown Newport (About 8 Mins.), which is great for shopping and eating. Overall it is a little expensive, but was a great couple of days.
