Stayed here during a recent trip to Newport. We usually stay at hotels, but we decided to give this place a shot. Overall, the place is quaint with decent-sized rooms and a fantastic location. The owner, Brian, is nice and very accommodating. There's no on-site parking, but Brian suggested a couple of places (you can unload/load in the gravel lot next to the inn). It was really hot the day we checked in, and it would have been nice if they turned on the air conditioner before our arrival. It's an old house, and old houses are hot during the summer. It took a good 6 hours before our suite was cool enough. It's a fairly large space that needs to be cooled (bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath). The beds leave much to be desired (my wife ended up moving in the middle of the night, as she was hanging on for dear life so as not to plunge into the depths of the center of the bed). My 2 year old absolutely loved running around in the spacious suite (she didn't want to leave to go to dinner!). It would have been nice to have a deadbolt on the door however, as I was afraid she'd wander off in the middle of the night (there's just a lock on the door handle). Breakfast in the morning was adequate (coffee, juice, pastries and fruit), and was served in a nice little sitting room. I would definitely stay here again for the location alone, but would probably not stay during the summer again.
