My daughter rented this house for her wedding party. From Friday to Sunday we were able to have memorable events. Brunch for the bridesmaids on Friday morning was great. We laughed around the large dining room table. Plenty or room for all. Beautiful room. The rehearsal dinner

My daughter and I stayed in “Greystone Chamber”. UNIQUE is the first term that springs to mind when describing the experience of sleeping in the converted servants’ area of this historic home. (It was also comfortable and quiet). The hosts were welcoming and helpful but

Through a mix-up in reservations elsewhere, we ended up at the Architect's Inn. Couldn't have been any happier! For starters, this house is immaculate. We stayed in the room with blue tones (in the picture on their webpage). Spacious. The bed was very comfortable. We liked that

Response from Architects G, Manager at Architect's Inn - George Champlin Mason House
Responded Jul 31, 2017
This guy is looney bins. He booked his room on booking.com and called us to get a confirmation for his room. We said we can't do that because booking.com already sent him a confirmation. If you book through a travel agency such as booking.com or hotels.com then they take your payment and legally they send you your confirmation email. It doesn't come from us unless you book directly through us. It isn't rocket science. We tried to explain this him but he flipped out and called us and harassed us for a week leaving horrible voicemail messages. This review is not for this property either so it has no business on this website at all. He needs to read his confirmation and which of our properties he booked. If he only read the information that was in his email box, he wouldn't be so confused and start saying we are running a shadowy business. We have been open for 21 years. We are an established group of vacation rental properties in Newport area. Who is he to doubt our credibility?

"Avoid the basement"
"Talk to Nick first"
"Book in advance!"
"Rooms on middle floor give best space, no issues with noise in any part of the residence."
