What a great weekend! We met friends in Newport and feel like we really lucked out with Cliff Walk Cottage. Jennie and Stuart were excellent hosts; their first concern was that we enjoy our visit and do it on our own schedule. The appetizers every evening and breakfast in the morning were outstanding and plentiful.
Every recommendation they made, for restaurants, activities such as a sailboat tour, and walks, was excellent. And the "cottage" is right next to steps accessing the Cliff Walk.
The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. In addition to our rooms, we had access to a large and comfortable living room; all rooms had views out over Easton Beach and the water. Wonderful artwork and decorating and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. We felt like guests, but also had our privacy.
We are not generally bed and breakfast fans, but if all b&b's were like this we could change our minds. I would not want to stay anywhere else on a return trip to Newport.

On a clear day, you can see Gay Head (Martha’s Vineyard) and the Cliff Walk all the way up to The Breakers from its upper level. ... more less
