Our trip was this past summer in August, so this review is a little over due, but I had to write about the great building & hospitality my boyfriend & I received. We had never been to Newport and I love the ocean so I decided a quick 3-day trip would be perfect! The Samuel Durfee house was walking distance to all restaurants & shopping areas downtown. Our room was in the front of the house so we were able to look out our windows in the evening to see the sunsets over the marinas. The house was in great condition and the hosts were more than willing to help at any moment. The afternoon tea & cookies/brownies were especially welcoming after a long day of walking around so we could recharge for the evening. My boyfriend is a bit of a foodie, so that is one of the reasons I chose the Samuel Durfee House after reading some reviews and we were not let down! The first morning we had Belgian Waffles with a warm fresh berry topping and Pecan Muffins. The second morning we had Eggs Benedict Crepes which were to die for! The hosts gave us some great recommendations on places to go and things to see while we were there. I would definitely stay here again and have already told some family members to stay there on their next trip!
