The Samuel Durfee House is an historic building, that has been refurbished and is in lovely condition. Your hosts are charming and helpful and put on delicious breakfasts - one day sweet, the next savoury. The Inn is convenient to downtown attractions and shopping and the sea-side mansions of Newport are only a very short drive away. The Inn provides off-street parking in their own lot. Over the nights that we stayed our fellow guests included an Australian couple at the end of a 5 week visit to the USA, a couple from Brooklyn, with accents to prove it, an English couple from Surrey and two couples from Colorado. Each breakfast brought convivial conversation and delicious food and drink. Coffee is available during the day and cookies are set out for an afternoon snack. It was exactly the kind of experience that makes us inveterate patrons of B&B's. The bed and linens were of fine quality and the rooms (we peeked into many) all seemed as lovely as our own. The ONLY complaint I could make is that the shower curtain was set so low that it flopped onto the shower's floor, which I find an annoyance.
