We were two couples that stayed at the Harborside Inn over the Jewish holiday. We were very surprised at how much we really enjoyed our stay. We had clean rooms that overlooked the harbor and were next to the "breakfast room". What a convenience ! Everymorning there were eggs, ham, muffins, danish and several kinds of ceral at our disposal. In the afternoon they have wine and cheese for those that would like to nosh. It was perfect as a meeting point every morning with our coffee as to what we would do that day. Felt like europe.
Made reservations for dinner at the "Fluke" resturant, which was within walking distance of the Inn. It is a small cozy upscale bar with an excellent choice of wonderful drinks, which we totally loved. I had a small dinner plate of crabcakes, which were delicious. We liked it better than some of the larger places there on the wharf. Topped it off at the new 41N, which is in front of the Harborside Inn, where we had i drink. Expensive, but a beautiful setting over the water. Even if you just have one drink there, it is worth it for the ambiance.
Lunch the next day at the Castle Inn out past the Ocean drive. This is our favorite and always will be. Sunday Jazz brunch out on the patio and then take a seat out on the adirondack chairs and watch the lovely boats go by all afternoon. Service at the chairs makes it complete.
Sunday we planned a picnic out at Brenton State Park, which was late about 4:00 p.m. A beautiful setting with the ocean as a backdrop. A wonderful way to end a perfect beautiful weekend. Love Neport and all four of us hope to return next year, same time.
