One of our wedding gifts was a weekend stay in Newport, RI at the quaint, charming Armisted Cottage! We started by meeting the delightful host and hostess, Romana and Charles. We were shown around the house...what magnificent, interesting and exotic furnishings and antiques but the biggest fascination is Romana'a extensive (and I mean extensive) collection of carrots (in any format you can imagine from porcelain carrots to paintings of the orange vegetable)! I never did ask how many were in the collection.
Our room was the beautiful Lilac Room and we were given a number of ideas for sightseeing from our hosts. The location of Armisted Cottage is central to all attractions in Newport which is wonderful! We weary sightseers returned to a comfortable night in our room and we felt quite at home.! But the biggest surprise was the magnificent breakfast we were treated to the following morning; the meal was prepared with love and excellent culinary ability!!
We will be back!!!!!!!!!
