Stone House is the newest addition to the Newport Experience collection of properties. Stone House is a seaside inn in the quaint, farming community of Little Compton, RI, sitting on 2.7 acres near the tip of Sakonnet Point. The original four-story building was constructed in 1854 as a private residence and was once home to David Sisson and his son, Henry Sisson, a civil war hero. It was converted to an inn during the 1920s and an old tap room remains in the basement that was once a speakeasy during the Prohibition. The property features spacious and well-appointed guest rooms and suites and beach access. There is also a renovated barn on the grounds that features guest rooms, a ground floor outdoor terrace and gorgeous water views.

Gathered for a girls weekend, total blast! Incredible location, great rooms, breakfast spread & pleasant staff. We had a great dinner down stairs in the old speakeasy, very cool. Great fire pit and a perfect porch for evening cocktails. Will be returning!

When expectations are not met, disappointment will surface....especially after spending almost $700 for one night. My husband and I spent three days exploring the Newport RI area and splurged on the final evening. Little did we realize that we were not staying in the Stone House, but in a renovated barn. Even though we supposedly had a beach view, we saw a pond way in the distance looking through two very small windows. There was no microwave, no dining available (other than flatbread and Caesar salad), no elevator. The small television was not visible from the bed and the living room had a sectional with no end tables nor coffee table to put drinks on. A continental breakfast was served in the stone house. A $25 resort fee was charged to cover water and coffee in the room (isn't that normal) as well as beach towels for water too far away to walk. If the price of the room was more in line with what was offered, I would have given it a favorable rating but it in no way matched our accommodations. The marketing for this property is wonderful and I should have looked into this more closely before booking.

Response from Teresa O'Connor, General Manager at Stone House Inn
Responded Aug 31, 2023
Dear Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Upon reading your review I feel that for some reason you did not experience everything the property has to offer as the property has far more features than you described. I am disappointed to learn that for some reason you did not have an exceptional stay that has our guests return time after time each year. The Stone House Inn consists of two buildings, the main house and what we refer to as the barn even though that look is from the outside only. The rooms in the barn are our most requested rooms because of its oversized guest rooms, modern decor and the feature of giant soaking tubs in select rooms. However, some may prefer the more historic feel of the main house next to it. Had we known this was the case for you, we certainly would have done all we could to make that transition. Similar to most small inns and bed and breakfast type properties and also our historical nature, we do not have an elevator on property. That being said, our staff is trained to happily assist if anyone needs help bringing items to their room. Regarding the amenity fee, water and coffee are a standard amenity. The fee covers continental breakfast, afternoon light bites, bicycles (both mens and womens), lawn games, books, games and s'mores at our fire pit in the evenings. We also provide beach towels and chairs that can be used at Tappens Beach, just on the other side of Round Pond that neighbors the property. It is a 10 minute stroll, but some choose to take our bikes there. We take great pride at the Stone House chatting and getting to know our guests so that we can make their stay not just meet but exceed expectations. It is part of why our rooms are at a premium with return travelers. Because your concerns are just coming to light now, I am sad that we did not have that opportunity with you. Should you choose to give us another try now that you have some more information, we will be here waiting to welcome you.

I had the worst hotel experience of my life here, only to be compounded by the worst customer service imaginable. The hotel room was filthy and infested with ants. The comforter's underside had a huge spot that looked like vomit or feces, which we didn't notice until the next day. We spent the whole evening sleeping with that touching our bodies--the horror when I discovered it. To make matters worse, the manager, Theresa, insists that it must have been vomit from ourselves and/or our service dog. That was 100% not the case as the dog was never unattended. Furthermore, instead of comping the room, Theresa said she should charge us for the damage! Go there at your own risk...I imagine they'll be out of business soon.

Nice, well run inn with water views in Little Compton. Our room in the barn building was modern and very large. Breakfast and wine/cheese pre-dinner were very good. No on-site restaurant but good options in the nearby town or Tiverton. We brought in food and drinks from a local restaurant and enjoyed the room, balcony, and water views. Service was great, particularly Olivia. Thanks for getting the fire pit going on a cold and windy night.

Second time to the Inn. Love the new amenities added- breakfast, wine and cheese, fire pit with s'mores, bikes to use, nice bottle of wine waiting in the mini fridge. A beautiful historic inn with a view of a pond with swans and a short walk to a small private beach. A quiet place to recharge and enjoy the nearby farms and wineries and beaches. Stayed in Star - love the private balcony and sunny room, comfy bed and nice linens. Connie was so welcoming and a great resource for things to do in the area. Can't wait to return!

We have stayed at the Inn previously. We knew it was now operational once again. We wanted information on staying at the property as we were now staying in Newport . I am not sure what the problem was but we were not treated well concerning our questions by two staff members on duty. Totally uninterested in our visit to get information. We won't stop again at this Inn.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review, everyone's feedback is very important to us. As you can see by the reviews from our guests, providing great service is something that we take great pride in and excel at. That being said, your comments will be shared with the staff to find out what happened as it is surprising because it is quite out of character for the inn.

Its such a peaceful place with such an accommodating staff and the manager Olivia was outstanding in assisting us with all the amenities. The room was perfect and between the breakfast and the nightly firepit beginning and ending the days of walks to the close beach, bicycle rides and just enjoying the atmosphere of views of the Point and the Lighthouse were wonderful. Little Compton is still basically the same town that my parents grew up in the 1920's and my grandfathers who were both lighthouse keepers a rare gem in the fast and furious world. Only opportunity is to get the historic restaurant open again. We will be visiting again soon with our children and grandkids to get away for a few days to let them enjoy a piece of the good old days. Outstanding staff and peaceful

My girlfriend were lucky enough to stay in the king suite here this last Saturday, 5/14/22. For starters, check in time was scheduled for 3pm. However we received a call from the front desk 2 houtrs early letting us know our room was ready and we could check early if we were in the area. Impressive. Check in was a breeze, with the friendliest front desk clerk I've ever met. She showed us to our sweet and gave us some history on the building. Our room was right next to check in, and the suite looks EXACTLY as it does in the pictures. Super clean, quiet with a fridge and nice mounted flat screen tv with enough channels to keep me entertained. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The beach is literally a 5 minute walk away. The only heads up is that there is nothing in Old Compton. I forgot to bring a jacket or sweatshirt and seeing that it was chilly and we wanted to sit by the fire at night, I needed one. There is no mall, Target, WalMart, etc anywhere near by. I was lucky to get the last XL hoodie at the really cool general store, otherwise we would have had to stay in the room all night. This is a 5 star location. Pricey, but worth every penny.

Stayed here 2 nights for a bday , beautiful property but grossly overpriced for what is provided, needs a lot of maintenance work , shades and fireplaces not functional, cheap amenities and towels etc. That being said , Olivia, Nick and the housekeeping staff could not have been better given their limited resources. Clearly the group they are associated with is trying to bleed this for all they can. At this price point I’d expect much more in terms of quality,the complimentary nightly hordourves consisted of reheated frozen soup and and a 25 minute drive to any decent restaurant this is problematic. In short , great location , devoted staff but lacking the commitment on the part of ownership to deliver the amenities that should be provided for the price charged .

The setting is a ten, views are special. The nightly fee would suggest a four star and it is more of a two (maybe a three) for their lovely staff. A partially renovated ( only in “barn”)old historic stone house converted to a mess of different size awkward rooms in main House and renovated Motel 6 type level rooms in their “ barn”. Given they are only game in town they can afford to raise rates substantially, the view and proximity to shorelines are great, down right beautiful but it is criminal what they are charging even if you can because it indicates a different experience. No question, the nice staff makes up partially for the lack of amenities and the dreary dated and musty rooms; but they can do only so much. The main house is laden with heavily stucco walls painted and repainted in a drab color, the stairs are extremely steep ( dangerous and circular) and creaky. The rooms have very old commercial carpet and the airconditioning is marginal. We tripped their system four times and our room could not get below 75 degrees at night. It finally just stopped working in the evening and there was no one there to attend to the issue. The furniture is old and the quality of a Bobs warehouse, not an elegant hotel. In fairness the bathrooms have been renovated in a home depot or ikea quality with deep tubs that would be impossible or dangerous to manage for an older person. They are clean. The beds are low and believed to be foam the furniture is very low grade made solely of partical board not real wood. Their pillows are old and very large, old stuff and hard to sleep on.... There are no overhead lights in bedrooms. The florecent lights along with huge exit neon signs create a terrible atmosphere in hallways on the interior of the room. There was no fan in bathrooms. No proper closet only a cut out in hall with an old burgundy and gold curtain containing a bar and a fan and a ironing board. Awkward . The breakfast were thorough and what you might see at a comfort inn. Hard boiled eggs small, box cereal and yoplait yogurts. The pluses were the cold bottles of water in the lobby along with the hot croissants. Sadly the coffee was weak bit plentiful and other options are 20 mins away. It's a bit of a catch 22 and they know it. If you need to be near Little Compton you don't have an option but to rent a house.. I don't think they should take such egregious advantage unless they renovate and get better amenities like farm to table foods, bath goods from a higher brand than cvs, replace commercial dirty carpets, Paint everything, easier access to rooms aka new stairs, closets installed in bedrooms, airconditioning that works. If you book stay the barn is cleaner and more up to date. Area rugs were purchased in the last ten years let's say and overall more open clean and comfortable. Their suites run 1000 and their room 500 and not what you would expect for that pricing. A missed opportunity for a great hotelier to make this location a real find with proper protocols and level of service for their rates. The views are a ten the outside chairs are their best feature but you can't sleep there. I look forward to the owners putting some of their profits into a major renovation. I would happily go back!
