Fran and Bryan are extremely accommodating and helpful in recommending restaurants and what to see in Newport. Their B&B is immaculate and filled with beautiful antiques. It is also within easy walking distance of the Newport Visitor Center, harbor, restaurants, and shops. Great view of the bay from our large room in the front. Sitting on the front porch in... More

We chose this B&B to celebrate our anniversary and could not have enjoyed it more. The location, in an historic neighborhood, was perfect - beautiful water views, an easy walk to town, but quiet at night. Sitting on the front porch of this lovely Victorian, looking out at the bay and lighthouse was so relaxing, and Bryan and Fran were... More

While at the Newport Visitor Center, they suggested this B&B. This is a beautiful old Victorian home with beautiful antiques and gardens. We enjoyed Bryan's tour and history of the house. The front porch is lovely, overlooking the harbor, as was our bedroom. We got some beautiful pictures of the sunset on the dock across the street. Breakfast was absolutely... More

Thank you for your great review. You took our last room which is very small. The detached bath is brand new and private to only your room. Sorry about the water pressure. The house was built in 1871 and not conducive to all of the present bathrooms. Please try us again and stay in our rooms that are ensuite. That... More

Just back from a quick overnight stay at the Sarah Kendall House. The location was perfect! The inn was charming and our room was spacious, clean and decorated beautifully. Bryan was kind and informative. The food and hospitality were terrific. Can't wait to go back!

The breakfasts were wonderful and our room, beautiful. My wife loves a clean house and that is what we found here. A short walk (less than a block) from the ocean-view front porch... More

Spent an overnight with my wife for our anniversary. This place was immaculate, and the hosts were extremely gracious. The best breakfast spread we have ever had, a wonderful room overlooking the harbor, and an upstairs tower all made this a great stay.

This house was built in the 1870's and has a lot of character. We stayed in the Isaac room which had a view of the harbor, had king size bed and large bathroom. Great decorations. Enjoyed talking with Bryan each morning as he served a great breakfast. One morning we had french toast with bacon and next eggs with sausage.... More
