My daughter and I stayed her two nights and had a wonderful time. As many reviewers have said the breakfast is not only home-cooked & delicious, but the breakfast room with its view is wonderful! We loved the location near the mansions and were able to walk to several. The bedroom had a sitting area separated by a curtain, which... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2015 via mobile

I absolutely loved this place. The location, the view from the dining area, that's what Newport is about! We had an amazing room with this awesome tub and fireplace. The bed was exquisite! Bathroom spacious and pristine. It even had a little in-room bistro set and mini fridge! But the best part was breakfast...holy cow it was amazing!!! I highly... More

It is a quaint B&B in the heart of Newport. Very simple, clean rooms with bathrooms. The really beautiful view room is the dinning room where guests are welcome to take a warm breakfast (pancake, eggs or waffles) with fruit and coffee, plus share your town experiences with other guests. This nice room does not have a easy access to... More

My wife luckily found us a room here as Newport was packed due to the folk festival. Owner is very friendly and helpful, as are the other two staff members we met. Our room was on the first floor next to the front door (it's an old house converted to a B&B) and quite small, but it had its own... More

My husband and I spent only one night here for a quick getaway. We stayed in the only room on the second floor (I've forgotten the name of the suite). The staircase is very narrow and winding, but the room was beautiful and very comfortable. The large bathtub in the middle of the room was a little unusual. We didn't... More

Our stay at The Artful Lodger was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast room has a beautiful view. You are far enough away from the busy nightlife so it's peaceful, but the shops, restaurants, ocean piers and bars are within walking distance.

A wonderful place to go when visiting Newport. My best friend and I had an amazing time. The staff was courteous and helpful, their recommendations for eateries and things to do were spot on. I would definitely go again. What a friendly bunch of people.

First thing you'll notice about the Artful Lodger is LOCATION, LOCATION! You are literally in the backyard to the Elm's. Amazing location to visit Bellevue Avenue to tour the mansions. The Inn is located in a residential area, houses are very close to each other in proximity. The Inn has its own parking which is a bonus. They have a... More

Upon arrival we had to wait for almost half an hour for the inn keeper to actually let us in, which bearing in mind check in was after two p.m. and we were there around four after a 200 mile drive and so well within the set time, not impressed. Whilst waiting on the front porch we could not fail... More
