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.

I stay at The Best Kept Secret every time I visit Rhode Island. That's usually twice a year. The hosts are both nice people who know when to give a guest some space and when to help out. I think it's one of the most unique places I've ever stayed at and I travel a lot. Where else can you... More

Why keep this a secret? Thank you, Nancy, for such a wonderful experience. Where else can you get farm fresh eggs and a great bike to ride along the coast? The energy of your place is something that will surely call me back next time I visit RI!

We attended the RI Air National Guard Air Show in Quonset Point, RI at the end of May and stayed once again with Tom and Nancy at their bed and breakfast. This time, we rented both of their rooms, as our son drove up from NYC,and met us there to go to the show. Tom and Nancy could not have... More
