Charles was so helpful and made our visit to Newport very special in spite of a very rainy day. The room was bright and the house was beautifully decorated. Good, big breakfasts.

Lovely owner - very compassionate and caring. And the breakfast he prepared was excellent. Home is charming - filled with antique pictures and many other articles - some parts of collections. Comfortable if one likes that sort of thing. Room was also comfortable - new bathroom was nice. Sheets on bed felt old but probably just softer than I tend to prefer. The owner definitely makes this place - along with it's convenient location relative to First Beach (about a 20 minute walk). I had a lovely time. Thank you!!

Warm and friendly atmosphere. Excellent food offerings for breakfast. The host (Charles) was informative and friendly. Loved the BIG front porch in this quiet neighborhood. Close to downtown Newport
