We just spent three nights at the Samuel Durfee House and had a great stay. Heather and Michael couldn't have been more accommodating. We were very comfortable in The Harrison Suite. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were well appointed. Parking was a big asset. We could leave our car and walk almost anywhere because of the central... More

Michael and Heather are great. We stayed for a couple days in the D. Duke room. The owners are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. The rooms are clean and the bead is comfortable. The SD house is within walking distance of almost everything. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Newport.

A great location and the owners are very knowledgeable about everything Newport. We parked our car when we arrived and did not drive it until we left - we walked everywhere, including down to the Mansions and the Cliff Walk! The Fitbit logged 12 miles for us that day! Breakfast was wonderful. We were in the Ida Lewis room and... More

A little pricey, but a great location. It is coveniently located within walking distance of many attractions. The off street parking is also a major plus. The hosts (Heather and Mike) do a great job of making you feel at home. Beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is awesome. This is an 1803 building, so the rooms are comfortable,... More

There are so many choices of B&B's in Newport, and I'm so glad I found this one. I was in the middle of an ambitious New England road trip with multiple destinations and decided to splurge on 3 nights in Newport to see the sights. I found all the reviews I had read about the Samuel Durfee House to be... More
