Staying in Newport during trip around New England. Staying with our 2 daughters the 'apartment style' rooms were ideal and gave us flexibility to come and go. Location was good for walking around Newport - parking is not easy.Host was very informative about where to go and somewhere to eat. Both were very friendly and provided a great breakfast. Our...

My very best friend and I had gone to college in Newport not too long ago- we were looking to stay somewhere quaint and unique. We were looking for a comforting (like home) environment. We also wanted to feel comfortable with the owners of the Inn- In booking our reservations I spoke to one of the owners of the Inn-... More

First time staying overnight in Newport and at a B&B, wonderful experience. The owners were so warm and friendly, made us feel like we were at home. The adorable house dog was so well behaved. They had great suggestions and tons of information that was so helpful. It was so nice to be able to walk everywhere since parking and... More

We had a great stay and our hosts' hospitality was off the charts. Donna and Rich were extremely nice and welcoming. They supplied us with a beautiful room, a hearty breakfast, and the most essential of all, wifi! We love their friendly dog Brownie, and the location could not have been better to go to all the great places, events,... More

The owners are very friendly and helpful! I started emailing them 6-8 months earlier trying to find the best room for our group. Once we were thinking there might be 4-6 girlfriends going to Newport they suggested their private apartment and it was perfect. We had a private entry way for returning quietly at 1 am after dancing (they gave... More

I travel to Newport quite frequently,lodging is expensive and service very ordinary.Most establishments employed staff that have little interest in their guests comfort.The reason I think so highly of this Inn is because the owners are the staff, they live there so they are readily available to be of assistance with a cheerful and positive attitude. Not many places help... More

We stayed at the Historic Hill Inn while we had some work done to our boat in Newport. Richard and Donna are the two nicest and most helpful innkeepers we've met. The inn was comfortable and clean. The location is perhaps the best in Newport, walking distance to everything! By the time we left we felt like family. We will... More

We are a bunch of friends that gather in Newport at least once a year. We have always stayed at Donna and Richard's Historic Hill Inn. Donna is a wonderful hostess and Richard is really knowledgeable about the area and its attractions. I usually stay in the back apartment and really like the quiet there. The rooms are unfailingly clean,... More

Richard & Donna Karlovich are the most cooperative innkeepers that I have ever met. After talking with Richard in the early planning stage, I felt that I knew him, as a friend. This was a "SUPRSIE PARTY"! I flew family members & friends from many states, so the coordination had to be perfect. When my guests settled inn, they remarked... More
