I want to give it more stars, but 5 is all trip advisor allows. Attention to detail is Kathleen's biggest quality. She has the #1 B&B in Bristol for a reason. She has thought of everything!!! This has become my zen place. Great hospitality, food, service, immaculate rooms ,bathrooms, yard, and living quarters. The location is great, being close to...

We are considering relocating to Rhode Island and the Bristol House B&B was a great location to get to know a little bit about the town and the state. Kathleen was a knowledgeable host and her breakfasts were delicious! Enjoyed the stay!

An engagement party brought us to Bristol,RI. We booked the Bristol House B&B for 2 nights and had a delightful stay. A lovely B&B tucked away in a pretty neighborhood. Our spacious room and private bath were impeccable. Beautiful weather allowed us to eat a delicious breakfast on the patio overlooking a pretty backyard. And breakfast was delicious: blueberry pancakes,...

We stayed here for the 4th July celebrations and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kathleen, the owner, makes you feel right at home. The rooms are immaculate and contain everything you could possibly need. The breakfasts are too die for!!! Will return here again I'm sure.

The best B&B we have stayed in. Beautiful! Wonderful atmosphere, situated on a lovely quiet road with a bike and walking trail 5 minutes away. Our host was amazing in every way, wonderful breakfast, trained chef, and very accommodating to her guests. She definitely knows what it takes to make her guest feel comfortable and wanting to return! Recommend it...

We loved every minute of our stay at Bristol House. We spent 2 nights in the Harbor Suite. Our room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. There were so many little touches like the chocolates left on the pillow each night. Kathleen is very welcoming. Her cooking is just fabulous and she is very happy to share her knowledge of...

Very clean, cordial and delicious. Tucked away in a quiet safe neighborhood but very accessible to Bristol happenings. Loved waking up to the special breakfast- missed it the first day but not after that -- happened to mention that we missed the breakfast and to our surprise we were able to sample it. Does not get better than this. Plan...

What a wonderful stay. I surprised my wife for her birthday and we enjoyed everything about the trip. We attend bed and breakfast often and look for a few things... 1.

The owner is an amazing chef! We could go for breakfast every weekend if she allowed us. The room is very cozy and had plush robes and slippers and she had hand made soap from a local shop that makes them. That was a nice touch to work with other businesses in the community. We even went to the shop...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We would like to let you know for your next visit, that we made the Harbor guest room into a suite and attached the private bathroom...so, no more entering from the hallway!
