We were searching for accommodations in Newport RI. We came upon the Bayberry Inn, which had a room available for slightly more than the local Marriott Hotel. What a find!!!
We arrived at the Inn and were warmly greeted by our Innkeeper, Cindy. She is extremely personable and is more than happy to do whatever she can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. She immediately showed us around to acclimate us to our surroundings. This was the day after Christmas and the Inn was beautifully decorated. In the main sitting room was a large Christmas tree and a table laden with sweets, which were available 24/7 for those "midnight snackers". Just FYI - for those with a sweet tooth, she makes a mean cookie! There was also a machine upstairs to make tea or hot coffee at any time.
Our room, the "Newport Room", was well-furnished with a comfortable king-size bed and a private bath that included a shower and jacuzzi tub. There was also a flat screen TV and a gas fireplace. Our view included the lighted Newport bridge and lighted clock tower.
The breakfast hour is 9 - 10, which may be late for some, but was perfect for us. I noticed that Cindy did accommodate several parties, once by having breakfast earlier for someone checking out early and another time by adding a bowl of cut fruit for someone with a specific dietary request. Breakfasts were filling and very tasty and were served with juice, coffee, tea, sweet bread, fresh baked loaves and more. For our three-day stay, we were served french toast and eggs two different ways.
The Inn is located very close to shopping (Thames St.) and points of interest (Bellevue mansions and the Cliff Walk). Good restaurants are everywhere! We were able to walk to dinner two nights, even though it was cold outside. We also took a peek at several of the other rooms, which were equally beautiful, especially the "Honeymoon Suite". Based upon the prices of other inns and hotels in the area, we feel this was a bargain and we definitely will return to this lodging when we return to Newport RI.
