My husband and I spent a weekend at this inn for our 35th anniversary and were disappointed. Except when breakfast is served, the inn has no visible staff. To reach a manger, you have to call his cell and wait for a return call. The common rooms were dark and the small porch was pretty shabby.
Although the Inn knew it was our anniversary, there was no acknowledgment, such as fruit or flowers, that we have usually received. We stayed in the Perry suite, which was fine, except cots and other items were stored at the end of the hallway of the suite.
Shoes are required to be left at the Inn entrance, which gave off a sort of funky smell after the first day.
We bought the package with an extra each day, like a massage or boat tour, but would have paid the same or maybe a little less had we just paid the room rate.
On the plus side, the Inn is within walking distance of town, the breakfasts were spectacular, as were the cookies left out in the afternoon. The masseuse who comes right to the room was marvelous.
Newport itself was great but we would not choose this Inn again.
