An extra treat was her chocolate chip cookies served warm upon our arrival and every afternoon. Most of all, Kathleen was friendly, gracious and accommodating. Being a foodie and a frequent guest of B&B's,... More

Rooms are well-kept with a cozy feel and the owner does a phenomenal job of providing both excellent advice about the area and a delicious breakfast! A great base to explore either Providence or Newport, as well as lovely Bristol.

I want to give it more stars, but 5 is all trip advisor allows. Attention to detail is Kathleen's biggest quality. She has the #1 B&B in Bristol for a reason. She has thought of everything!!! This has become my zen place. Great hospitality, food, service, immaculate rooms ,bathrooms, yard, and living quarters. The location is great, being close to... More

We are considering relocating to Rhode Island and the Bristol House B&B was a great location to get to know a little bit about the town and the state. Kathleen was a knowledgeable host and her breakfasts were delicious! Enjoyed the stay!

An engagement party brought us to Bristol,RI. We booked the Bristol House B&B for 2 nights and had a delightful stay. A lovely B&B tucked away in a pretty neighborhood. Our spacious room and private bath were impeccable. Beautiful weather allowed us to eat a delicious breakfast on the patio overlooking a pretty backyard. And breakfast was delicious: blueberry pancakes,... More

We stayed here for the 4th July celebrations and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kathleen, the owner, makes you feel right at home. The rooms are immaculate and contain everything you could possibly need. The breakfasts are too die for!!! Will return here again I'm sure.
