We just returned from the most AMAZING weekend at Murray House and the Newport Folk Festival! We had the BEST time, thanks in part to Noreen! She immediately made us feel at home. The house and grounds were beautiful. The room was perfect. And the view was so great! I must've taken 1,000 sunset pictures!! Each day after a long... More

The Murray House nailed right from the start: lightening fast communication and attention to details! We reached out regarding availability for the Folk Fest weekend and Noreen got right back to me regarding the water view suite being available and outlining that it's a separate unit from the b&b building and has a narrow spiral staircase and BYO breakfast. She... More

I woke up this morning to a delightful review of the Water/Pond view suite. My lovely guests, Melanie & Jason were so kind to let the world of travelers know what they thought of their stay at Murray House. And I so appreciate all they had to say in my regard. Needless to say, they will have a reserved spot... More

We stayed in the Water View Mini Suite for the July 4th weekend, reasonably priced for a holiday weekend. Noreen the hostess is lovely and very hospitable. Jay the maintenance man was the first to welcome us and he was so friendly and helpful. The location is lovely, very quiet with just the sound of birds and a short walk... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed the water view mini suite Aisling. It is one of my favorite rooms. And so glad you were able to enjoy the fireworks from your private deck, with the baby tucked away sleeping right behind you. Cheers, Noreen More

I stayed with my boyfriend in the Waterview suite over the fourth of July. You definitely cannot beat this place for the price!! Walking distance to beach, mansions and Cliff Walk. Close to Thames, but not too close that you can't sleep. We sat out on the balcony watching stars and listening to the ocean at night. Noreen was very... More

So very glad you enjoyed your stay. And thanks for letting everyone know what a neat place the water view suite is and that it's a great place to stay. I'm glad you were able to get the pup up the spiral. Even if you had to carry him yourself. :)) Cheers, Noreen More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Murray house over the 4th of July weekend. Prices were very efficient considering the holiday weekend and location. We were very kindly greeted by Noreen as we entered the property. Our pond view suite was absolutely relaxing, the view was breathtaking. Most gorgeous sunset seen right from our balcony. We kept the windows... More

Awful. Simply awful. I don't know what the threshold of great is for the other reviewers but these accommodations are about a 1 star. The toilet didn't flush, screens are torn and the door doesn't lock. There is even a note in the room that says don't worry about the broken lock, there is a police officer that lives next... More

I must say I was quite shocked to see this review. My first thought was that it was in error and for another place. I guess that expression is true that you can't please all of the people all of the time, still 99% is pretty good. I have many, many repeat guests, so I guess that also speaks for... More

This is a great get away. Far away enough from the tourists but close enough if you want to be one! We love the pool area and gardens as much as the short distance to the shore. In addition, it is at the end of the Cliff Walk! So many options available. Noreen is a sweetie, and a wonderful hostess.... More

We stayed in the Garden Room on 2 of the coldest nights this winter. Despite the weather, we had a wonderfully cozy Valentine's weekend which was made possible by Noreen's above and beyond hospitality. We cannot wait to return to this beautiful spot in the summer!
