Auntie's Room was clean, quiet and comfortable! Owners are very nice and of course it's always nice to be able to walk out the door and down the street to the water and restaurants. The nice big front porch was welcoming after a day traveling and the concert down by the water was a pleasant enjoyable surprise.

Thank BarreSue

My family and I stayed here while visiting our extended family. Our guest room was beautifully decorated and comfortable with a private bathroom. We found the bed to be very comfortable. My parents stayed on the third floor and their room had a window air conditioner. The second floor rooms do not have air conditioning, but each room has a... More

My girlfriend and I stopped here for a weekend stay on a New England road trip (ending at Acadia National Park in Maine). We had a great trip but our stay at Lionel Champlin really stuck out as the most relaxing and lovely part. We stayed in the Rose Room and it was wonderful. There is something truly charming, even...

We all had such a wonderful time at the Lionel Champlin, even with one rainy day. This inn is perfectly located for walking the town and along the water, with charming but unobtrusive hosts and beautiful rooms. We were an extended family so required five rooms for two nights, and Lisa did a great job figuring out who should best... More

This place was a good find. Our original plan was to spend a couple of nights in Newport, but the hotels there are very pricey. Jamestown is great alternative - easy access to Newport, but quieter - more relaxed. This place was just like the pictures. We loved our room (the Rose Room). Nice baked goods and coffee in the...

I have only great things to say about this place. Usually I write my reviews all at once each month but I had to get going on this one early. I stayed for a few nights in July in the 'Blue Room,' traveling alone. Where to start? The beauty of this house alone was enough to make it a 5-star... More

We spent three nights in the Rose Room, which is generously sized and very comfortable. The pleasant guest house is made even better by its location, just around the corner from East Ferry and Narragansett Ave, the heart of Jamestown village, so we were very short walks from restaurants and the waterfront. The guest house is very clear about this... More

we decided to attend the Volvo Ocean race activities in Newport....and were a little concerned about the traffic, the parking, the access, proximity of accommodations....Lisa and Rusty at The Lionel Champlin Guest House was the ideal solution...we accessed Newport/Fort Adams by water taxi and did Newport by day ( walks, museams, boats, piers, shops and happy hours) and enjoyed Jamestown...

About a year ago we were forced out of our house by a failed heating system which resulted in soot everywhere. Lisa and Rusty took us in; we stayed in the Rose Room for over 6 weeks while cleanup and repairs were being made to our house. The stay was so special and took our mind off the dismal condition...

Stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and loved it. The owners, Lisa and Rusty, are very warm and welcoming. Although we weren't able to make it in until late (2AM) the first night, the two of them made sure we would be able to find our room easily and left the light on for us. It is not a proper... More
