Inn Bliss Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #77 of 96 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 2, 2006

Slightly away from the hustle of downtown Newport, yet close enough for a walk to the harbor is Inn Bliss, a charming three bedroom B&B. A comfortable renovated house on a quiet street, Inn Bliss is a real treat. Comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, charming hosts, all for a good deal less than most other Newport accommodations. Having stayed there on two occasions, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great little B&B in Newport.

Stayed: July 2006

My wife and I recently visited Newport and stayed at the Inn Bliss. We were impressed by the attention to detail and the sincerity of the hosts. The food was also superb. Location was nice, close to the action but not right in the middle.

We just spent three nights at The Inn Bliss, which is a lovely B&B in Newport, RI. Our room was pleasantly large; the entire third floor of the house, so we had lots of room for spreading out luggage, a private bath, and a sitting area. One of the owners carried our heaviest bag up the two flights of steps, which was quite helpful.

Breakfasts were delicious and hearty, and we could choose our own breakfast time.

The Inn was conveniently located; it was an easy walk to the harbor area and the center of town.

Our hosts Nick and Brian were very helpful. Nick gave us lots of tips for negotiating Newport, as well as a history lesson, and both Nick and Brian helped us navigate with maps and directions, and gave us great recommendations for lunch and dinner. We had tickets to the Newport Folk Festival, for which we were intending to purchase a set of cheap lawn chairs, since we didn't want to carry ours with us on an airplane, but Nick generously offered their up for us.

After we made our reservation, and long before our stay, Nick was already sending us suggestions and offering to help us plan our time in Newport. These guys really do take an interest in making sure you have a great vacation in Newport!

We stayed at Inn Bliss for a couple of nights in August. The B&B has a great location, it is on a quiet side street with hassle free parking but is only a short walk from the restaurants and shops.

The B&B is delightful, beautiful rooms and lots of thoughtful extras. And as other reviewers have mentioned Nick's knowledge of the area is great and his tips are very helpful. We would certainly recommend it.

Inn Bliss B&B is a wonderful place to stay in Newport - away from busy downtown, but still close enough to walk there. Parking is easy and the Inn itself is great. What makes it more so is the Innkeeper Nick! Forever offering information on what to do and has a great knowledge of Newport's history. He always offers and honest opinion on what to see and do. The breakfasts he cooked us were wonderful and coming home to the Inn at night is quite a sight. Fairy lights light up the lounge and dining rooms, creating a welcoming place to be. My husband and I visited with my parents who were visiting from Australia. Our rooms were great, the hot tub was lovely at night and our overall experience was fantastic. Great value, and a pleasure to meet bot Nick and Brian. Thankyou for your hospitality - It is obvious your heart is definately in what you do as an inn keeper!

I find going to a bed and breakfast that offers continental breakfasts as disappointing as a Holiday Inn Express. That is not the case with Inn Bliss. The owners, Nick and Bryan, truly work to create an unusual and succulent breakfast. For instance, one morning we had fresh canteloupe with yogurt followed by pancakes with fresh blueberries with coffee and juice. All served on antique china.

Nick and Bryan's home is beautiful and filled with antiques. They are extremely friendly and have an intimate knowledge of the Newport area. You could literally spend a week going through the town and area. Excellent conversation is the norm at the Inn Bliss.

My only complaint: Don't take the attic suite if you're over 6'3". It is not meant for you. Enjoy one of their other rooms with 10 foot ceilings.

My partner and I spent a weekend at Inn Bliss and absolutely loved it. Nick and Brian were wonderful hosts and really paid attention to the little details that made our stay extra special and romantic. The room we stayed in (Lucretia's Room) was very cozy and beautifully decorated, as was the rest of the house. Nick's breakfasts were delicious, and he was very accomodating of special dietary needs. The inn was a short walk to shops and restaurants, but on a quiet street. Nick also provided great recommendations for which area attractions to visit, the best restaurants, and special events going on for the weekend. We would definitely recommend Inn Bliss!
