Stayed the weekend of September 16-18, 2016 and had a great experience. The house was beautiful and a 5 minute walk from the center of Newport. Our room, in the Tower, was big, clean with it's own bathroom and shower and a great view of the water. Can't say enough about the breakfast that awaited us every morning. Owner Bryan... More

We stayed at the lovely Sarah Kendall Bed and Breakfast in Newport, Rhode Island. It is located a gentle 10 minutes walk from the center of Newport. It has a water view from the porch. Breakfast is outstanding as are the hosts. Bryan and his wife outlined a game plan which allowed us to see The Breakers Mansion, Marblehead, the... More

This was hands down the best B & B experiences we have even had. The owner's hospitality was top notch, the food was ample and wonderful and the rooms were clean and appointed with every amenity we could ask for without losing it's authentic historic charm. We had a beautiful view of the water and an easy walk to town.... More

We just came back from a weekend in Newport where we stayed in the Sarah Kendall House. The room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. We loved being able to leave our car at the B&B and walk into town as it is very conveniently located. We definitely would stay again.

My wife and I stayed at the Sarah Kendall House with another couple as we celebrated our first year anniversaries together during Labor Day weekend. The location of the house is perfect. Walking distance into town, and steps from the water. Each night before we went to dinner we sat outside on the front porch and watched the sun set... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Sarah Kendall house a couple of weeks ago. This bed-and-breakfast gets only my highest review. The facility, the location, the rooms, the service, the food, all five stars! Bryan and Fran Babcock are marvelous hosts. We arrived as strangers, but left as friends.

We loved our stay. Maria was very friendly and helpful, she gave great recommendations! The house itself is so charming and carries so much history. Feels like you are in a museum.

As seasoned travelers we often find ourselves at hotels, resorts or on large cruise ships. We love them all. However, this was different. Peaceful, yet plentiful. Brian, Fran and Mary are the best hosts/hostesses you can ask for. From casual friendly conversation to the history of the house and area, to dinner recommendations, they simply do it all.

If we could give this place 10 stars it wouldn't be enough. The owners, Bryan and Fran were the most accommodating people, getting a room over the phone at the last minute due to a switch in our family's plan. We felt like they were friends we knew for a long time. The place is gorgeous, we'll maintained and in... More
