Went for a winter weekend getaway and just loved the place. I loved how quiet it was, it's location and how grand it is. It's in the 'mansion district' right off of Bellevue Avenue. We had a gift card from bedandbreakfast.com so I don't think I could afford to stay here during peak season. bedandbreakfast.com seems to limit which rooms you can stay in at the higher priced places, the room we stayed in isn't even mentioned on the Ivy Lodge website. It didn't really matter with this place though because the room we got, the Savannah room, was great. Fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a quiet room. The breakfast was OK. I did hear another guest complain he was hungry after eating his breakfast but he was accommodated. There's other things to nibble on if the main course doesn't fill you up. There were some pretty boring and stale muffins and cookies left out during the day. I didn't really care but if I was paying out of pocket, it would have cost me over $350 (in the winter) for a weekend stay, so I wouldn't be too happy about that. I honestly don't know why people spend so much for a room but these places in Newport certainly get what their asking. This place must be beautiful in the summer though. The porch was really nice and the yard was private with hedges all the way around the yard. I could imagine it's a nice place to spend a lazy afternoon. It would be nice to bring a bike and bike around the mansions. The common rooms are large and elegant. The innkeepers and help were lovely and the house is absolutely gorgeous. If the price doesn't scare you, by all means, this is your place.
