It was the best place to stay. Great location. Marie was an awesome host. The house and rooms were very clean. It had a homey feeling. I would definitely stay there again! It was great with the off street parking.

About
Description
Two great locations (73 Catherine St and 98 Mill St) offering bright, spacious rooms with private baths, big flat screen cable TV, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi and free parking, and home-baked goodies for breakfast More each morning. Easy walk to Newport center. Kid & pet rooms available. Lovely garden, sun porch, and quiet outside sitting areas. Catherine St was built in 1883 for Francis Jones of New York and named for Admiral William Sowden Sims (past President of the Naval War College) who lived here in the 1920s - an easy walk to the beach and Cliff Walk. Mill St is an 1812 Victorian especially close to Thames and Bowen/Bannister Wharfs. Less
