“Murray House, Newport's dog friendliest destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2010

Dear Noreen,
In our brief 3 days visit, we walked our two greyhounds (Samson & Delilah) along the entire Cliff Walk. Little did we know that they are part mountain goat as well.
Our time here was every bit worth the 835 miles we drove from Cincinnati, Oh (West Chester). You must load google earth on your computer. I will post our pictures there for you to find. After all, that's how we found the Murray House.
The dog friendly restaurants were wonderful, and the October weather, sunny & 70' something, could not have been more idlyllic.
Each day we returned to our room, we were enchanted by the new table settings.
Samson & Delilah were overjoyed with the dog treats you left.
Without further digression, Murray House and our hostess, Noreen, far exceeded our expectations in a wondrous setting.
Don't change a thing.
Alex, Cindy, Sampson & Delilah.

This letter is what I wrote in the guest book at the end of our stay. In addition to this, the proximity to the dog park and beach makes this location even more prime. Our two greyhounds make a road trip a bit more involved, logistically. Noreen's Murray House is the kind of place pet owners search for and don't always find.

was disapointed with murray place,we have stayed at over 6 different B&B's in Newport and i have to say i was not pleased with Murray Place. When we got to Murray Place after a 3 1/2 hour drive we were 10 min early and were asked to come back in 20 min because the room was'nt ready which we thought was rude after our long drive.When we were brought to our room the room was small and had a musty smell. We were told not to close our door to our room because of the breeze thats comes through but we think it was to hide the musty smell, so we had to keep most of our belonging in our car because we could not close or lock the door.The only nice things are you do get a hearty breakfast served to your room and the grounds of the Inn are very nice.

Murray House Bed and Breakfast is absolutely charming! I had a smaller room as it was only my daughter and myself, but it was roomy enough for two. Room was very clean and decorated very nicely with alot attention to detail. The private patio and pool area were beautiful. The innkeeper was very nice and her gourmet breakfasts were delicious! Overall an excellent experience and would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I spent the better part of the week at the Murray House. Accomodations were excellent! Poolside room was very comfortable and roomy. Breakfasts were spectacular--different every day. Our host Noreen was very helpful pointing out places to go and was on the money with restaurant recommendations. Really enjoyed ourselves. Noreen also delivered tremendous weather!!!

We stayed at 1 Murray House B&B in mid-May for a short get-away weekend. What a nice find -- a B&B located very close to the Newport Mansions and the Cliff Walk area. Noreen was a pleasure to work with in making our reservations, helping us to know about great places to eat in Newport, and doing the extra effort for our special requests like extra coffee and doing some research for us when we needed to figure out an impromptu wedding gift for some friends. We stayed in the Safari room and it was comfortable. Bathroom was a nice size. It was wonderful having a mini-kitchen for snacks, beverages, and such. We would definitely stay here if we visit Newport again.

Murray House Bed and Breakfast introduced to me a fabulous combination of elegance and affordability. The French Cuisine was phenomonal and the decor was a pure delight to return to after a delightful day in a delightful area. So close to everything you feel a part of the history that Newport, Rhode Island offers. The pool, hot tub, and amenities were short of nothing and the treatment from Noreen was undoubtedly a TREAT! I do feel I now have a new friend! She was helpful regarding restaurants, boat tours, and many options in the immediate area! The Cliff Walks were so accessible and what a BREATHTAKING JOY! The meals were unique and so delicious with the European flare. I highly recommend Murray House Bed and Breakfast and will be returning as well as taking others that I care about to ENJOY!

My boyfriend and I had a wedding to attend in Newport, and decided to make a weekend of it. B&B's seem the way to go in Newport, but we didn't want to break the bank. After looking around, we settled on the Murray House, because it looked comfortable, has a pool, is near the beach, and has parking, and because it was affordable. To our pleasant surprise the house is away from downtown, and in the same neighborhood as the Mansions. Our room faced the pool, but looked out on a pond, with the ocean just beyond. It wasn't warm enough for a dip in the pool (or the ocean) but after our long drive we were excited to find a hot tub on the patio ready for us.
Our hostess cooked a delicious breakfast, more than we could eat, and delivered it quietly to our room. The room itself was quite comfortable, with lots of fun little details and plenty of amenities and considerations, and two little rooms to spread out in with a balcony. My only complaint is that bathroom is pretty small, and has only a stand up shower. The outdoor area was my favorite. Around the pool and hot tub are little environments and sitting areas. In the back of the yard is a koi pond, with a path, and thoughtful protection for the fish. At night we could hear fountain in the pond, which was quite soothing. It is apparent how much thought the owner has put into creating a little oasis.
I would definitely recommend the Murray House to someone looking for a little peace and quiet and comfort, while being really close to the sites.
