Had a lovely weekend getaway with my husband at the Sarah Kendall House. We stayed in the Sarah Kendall room, and it was very nice and comfortable. The owners are very accommodating and take immense pride in giving the best of service and amenities - as they should. Brownies, cookies, coffee, sodas and beer are available in the afternoons, and...

As we wind down our week-long coastal New England vacation with a trip to Newport, an overnight at Sarah Kendall surfaces to the top of our b&b experiences. There is nothing better than being greeted at the door of a "stranger" and immediately made to feel at home. Bryan is a gracious host, and our second floor room - which...

My fiancé and I recently stayed at the Sarah Kendall House for a relaxing weekend getaway. The house is a beautiful Victorian home close to town with views of the bay. The host was nice enough, but was talking a mile a minute upon our arrival I wasn't sure if he was in a rush to finish with us. Our...

Thank you for your review. The owner greets all of our guests with a quick history of the B+B since it is on the historic register of homes in Newport. He tries not to keep them not too long as they do not come for a "history class." I think you misunderstood his welcome. Our breakfast hours are in line...

My partner and I went to the Rhode Island shore to get out of the city and enjoy peace and quiet, and the sea. Sarah Kendall House is so pretty with many intriguing details, from the beautiful art and collectibles decorating the main rooms, to the architecture of the original home which has been restored with care. We were in...

My friend and I stayed at this B&B last weekend. We couldn't have picked up a better property for our stay. Bryan greeted us when we checked in and upgraded us for free to the best room in the house!

Everything about this place is amazing! I visited the first weekend in February after a snow storm. Flights were delayed, we got in late... The trip could have been miserable. It was so comforting to arrive to a warm room with a fire available at the flip of a switch. It was even more relieving that I was able to...

The house was very elegant - the rooms, furniture, decorations, paintings, etc. Quaint, but not creepy. We stayed in the top floor and got a nice harbor view, actually the house is just a few steps from the port, the view of which is absolutely breath-taking, days or night, with the tranquil sea, and the extending bridge, so beautiful.
