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!

Here is my guestbook account from Friday 9/25/15: Dear Noreen, The sunset on the patio last night was magnificent, to die. I went to get more direct sunlight for my online book group but what a surprise! The sun setting over the pond was an unexpected delight, and we could see the bay out past the pond. I'm just so...

We recently spent 4 nights at Murray House in the Pond View suite. What a wonderful experience! It is a lovely place, so well cared for in both the suite and the surrounding property.

I absolutely loved this place! Stayed from Friday until Monday October 2015. Even before we arrived, the manager Noreen was in constant contact with us, making sure we would be accommodated for whatever time we arrived (NJ to RI on a Friday is crazy at best!). We received explicit instructions, with pictures, as to how to check in. And Noreen... More

Myself, husband, one year old daughter, sister and sister's boyfriend spent the weekend at The Murray House. We were visiting for a wedding, but stayed a few extra days to make a trip out of it.
