We have been converted to true belivers in the B&B! Heather & Michael are wonderful, warm, caring, and informative hosts. The Inn was impeccable, spacious, and beautifully decorated.
The breakfasts were over the top, definitely not a granola bar B&B!! Food was delicious, ample, and attractively served. Nothing could have improved our stay and hope to send many friends there for the wonderful and relaxing experience.
Thank You Heather, Michael and Jaxson.
Jon & Gloria

Room Tip: We loved our room-Doris Duke-very comfortable-love the pillows. Friends who stayed for 7 days had the room on the first floor with sitting room and patio which was very nice for a longer stay.

We stayed at the Samuel Durfee House for 4 days. Michael & Heather are very special people who make staying at their B&B comfortable, enjoyable, and informative. The house is kept spotlessly. The room was very comfortable. Each breakfast was unique and fastidiously prepared (thank you Michael.) Each afternoon baked goods and beverages were provided (thank you Heather for baking the cookies, brownies, etc.) Conversations with the other guests during breakfast and in the late afternoon were always interesting as we traded information about our sightseeing in Newport as well as our other travels. Michael & Heather always answered questions about the Newport area and made suggestions on where to have dinner, what to see, etc. Without a doubt, if (when?) we return to Newport, we will definitely stay at the Samuel Durfee House.

First time to a Bed and Breakfast! The location was great for walking into town and to dinner, also close to the Newport Mansions & Cliff Walk that we really enjoyed. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and filling, thank you Michael!!! Hope to come back next year in the fall and stay in the Ida Lewis Room next time.

Great hosts, great location, great Inn. Heather and Michael were so kind and informative, making our stay just perfect. Our room " the Samuel Durfee " was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfest everyday was delicious and plentiful, and allowed us to skip lunch. The location is within easy walking distance of the harbor and most restaurants, as well as some of the museums and mansions. Looking forward to going back next year.

We selected this wonderful B&B because of how highly it was rated by tripadvisor members, and our expectations were greatly exceeded. Before moving to the Midwest 30+ years ago we used to frequent Newport and decided to go back to celebrate our 35th anniversary so the place had to be special -- and it definitely was. Samuel Durfee House is charming, clean, beautifully decorated and chock full of all the amenities you could hope for, but most importantly it has Heather and Michael. This wonderful couple genuinely wanted to make our stay as pleasant and memorable as possible and did everything in their power towards that end. From cheerful advice as to where to dine and what to do, to gourmet breakfasts, they never failed to excel. Cannot wait to return.
