I love all the conveniences of Best Kept Secret B & B. Besides the comfort and hospitality, the location is great. Short walks to the beach, convenience store, and nail salon. The neighborhood is great for walks as well as to Black Point. The look out is exquisite. Scarborough Beach is always my favorite. Nancy and Tom always maintain a... More

This is a great place to stay. We were only doing an overnight but plan to return to stay several nights. It is a 5 min walk to Scarborough Beach. Nancy and her husband Tom were very welcoming. Breakfast was great and the room was spotless. We will definitely return.

Three girlfriends spent three nights at Best Kept Secret B & B, two in the larger bedroom and 1 in the smaller bedroom. Since there are only two rooms, we had the place to ourselves. It was very casual. If we used towels, we put them in the hamper and got clean ones from a cupboard. Nobody made our beds.... More

It was so nice having you and thanks for the response - I always learn from what our guests post. We would have been delighted to make the beds for you but most guests are just here 1-2 nights and I used to ask - and will start asking again regarding bed making. Hope to see you lovely, fun ladies... More

We stayed at Best Kept Secret for the first time recently, and were really pleased. The breakfast was great (and a little less of a set menu than many b&bs), the room was clean, the location was an easy walk to the beach, and our hosts were lovely people. They made us feel like old friends rather than paying guests.... More

Nancy and her husband, their cats and chickens were the perfect hosts. The house was spotless and we had a wonderful front room with windows on two sides and an overhead fan. It was particularly hot and humid while we were in Narragansett but the temperature dropped in the evenings and the breeze that wafted through the windows put us... More

Two friends and I just spent 3 evenings at this delightfiu B and B. Nancy and Tom are great hosts, and the B and B is located just 2 blocks away from a beautiful beach and within easy driving distance to lovely towns, shops, and restaurants. All in all, a great place to spend a few days.

My wife and I took a weekend trip to Rhode Island, and made Best Kept Secret our base of operations because of it's good reviews and proximity to the beach. Nancy and Tom (the owners) are so nice, helpful and accommodating. Every morning they'd have a great breakfast spread for us, and make eggs, pancakes or french toast fresh. The... More

We discovered Best Kept Secret B&B in 2010 while trying to plan a 4th of July vacation to Newport. As we were too late to find anything affordable in Newport - I somehow stumbled on Best Kept Secret. The reviews were great and they said there were kitties! so I booked it. That was 5 years ago and we have... More

This is a very well maintained Victorian Style Home, located just a few blocks from the famous Narragansett Beach. A wonderful breakfast, of fresh fruits and berries and yogurt, including pancakes or cereal, fresh juices, eggs & bacon & wonderful coffee, greats us every morning. The owners are very pleasant and very accommodating. The house is kept neat & clean!... More

We highly recommend Best Kept Secret B and B. This is our second stay and we'll definitely be back. Centrally located and walking distance from the town beach. Tom and Nancy are incredibly accommodating and their home is very very comfortable.
