If you are looking for a place to stay on a summer weekend in Newport for about half the price of the major hotels this is that. BUT for the price it does not live up to what it should be. The staff is very friendly. But the facility has not been kept up. After looking at the pool we... More

My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a cozy large home with a pool and a lovely breakfast. Our hosts were wonderful, friendly people. We felt like we were staying in a friend's home. We were able to walk to many sites from the home. Would definitely recommend the Wayside Guest House.

We stayed in the Library Room which was very classy and huge! We had a door right on to a porch and the swimming pool. The staff was so friendly and accommodating they made us feel like old friends visiting. The bed was very comfy and stylish. It is a nice en suite. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks Lorraine...

Lorraine, Alicia, et al. are wonderful. It is not the easiest place to find in the dark, but Alicia was texting us as we were turning around on Bellevue Ave. at 12:30 in the morning. The Butler's Pantry, a "smaller room", was bigger than most hotel rooms with a queen size bed. Breakfast was very nice & the location for... More

The Wayside has all the charm of a bed and breakfast with all the splendor of a Newport mansion. I was greeted by Lorraine and Alicia with warm cookies at the door! My expanded continental breakfast was filling and included home made yogurt. The grand entrance has 16 ft ceilings. The crown moldings are very impressive. My room was very... More

My 89 year old Mom and I spent her birthday weekend at the Wayside Guest House. We stayed in the library room on the first floor. Its a really pretty room with tall ceilings and a walkout to a pretty patio overlooking the pool. An interesting event occurred at around midnight on the first night we stayed there. My smartphone...

The Sweetie and I have few opportunities to enjoy time away together, so when we are able to get away we try to stay somewhere special (at a price that won't break the bank). Fortunately for us, Wayside had availability on the one night we were going to be in Newport. Lorraine responded in a timely manner to both email... More

Great place to stay! Lovely innkeeper and staff, inviting accommodations, clean, and quiet. This in right on Bellevue Ave where all the mansions are. It is located diagonally from the Elms. We met some nice people while visiting, and plan to return in the future! P.s. I have more pictures I will post.

Just recently stayed here for a friends wedding. Lorraine was so nice and helpful when it came to suggestions for places to go and try out in Newport! The price was really affordable compared to other Newport hotels. We stayed in the cottage which worked out great having two rooms and a living room! Very friendly staff and cute accommodations!...
