My wife and I were looking to spend a weekend in Newport, but became increasingly frustrated with the high rates and two-night minimums (even in the off-season!) that go along with staying there. So, we decided to stay overnight in Jamestown (the town right before Newport) and drive over to Newport for dining, shopping, mansion touring and driving along the beautiful Ocean Drive.
This plan worked out great for us, thanks to Diane & Paul and their wonderful, relaxing bed & breakfast; East Bay. The property was very well maintained, beautifully decorated and without question a great value.
Check-in was a breeze with came with a nice tour of the home. Our room, the Narragansett, was decorated absolutely beautifully and we felt right at home the mintue we put our bag down.
Breakfast was delicious and served in a cute, sunny breakfast room. It was pleasant talking with the owners and their other guests during breakfast.
Other great touches included his and her bathrobes, plush bath towels, nice toiletries, complimentary bottled water and bedside chocolates, a very comfortable bed, great water pressure in our private bathroom's shower, reading materials in the room, great noise control from room to room, room darkening window treatments, a flat screen TV w/ DVD, a Keurig machine to use at your leisure, a book and DVD collection to use, free parking, maps and area information, restaurants within walking distance, proximity to Newport and so much more!
We will definitely return.
