My mom and I stayed for one night while dropping off my son at camp. The farm is stunningly beautiful, quiet, and low-key. Had a friendly reception at the door and a tour of the elegant main house filled with antiques. Our room was in the Pool House (no pool anymore) with a queen in one room and a twin...

It was so nice to be at such a wonderful location with great rooms and delightful people to take care of whatever you needed. I think you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better to stay. And the breakfast are just unbelievable. Don't miss this one.

We recently were lucky to be given a three day getaway from our daughter at Mount Hope Farm. We were impressed with the beautiful grounds and the condition of the property. Our stay was great from the beginning to when we left. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff to make you feel welcomed. Our breakfast cook, Donna, was a great cook...

A beautiful spot located in the Historic and Quant town of Bristol, RI. We were there for the Fourth of July celebrations. The rooms were elegant and the Breakfast was for those who enjoy gourmet food. I am a eggs and bacon kind of guy but I still enjoyed the breakfast. The ladies who do the breakfast went out of...

I would highly recommend staying at Mount Hope Farm. It took a few phone calls to book my stay but well worth it. The Inn dates from 1745 but has all the modern conveniences one needs. The Inn lies on over 100 acres which includes a working farm. The property has a mile path which leads to a boat house...

When we stayed here, we had the main house to ourselves, we really felt like the lord and lady of the manor. Fantastic house with large rooms and period furniture. Great for walks in the grounds which border on river. Great cooked breakfast. The only downside is that there is only a caretaker on the property overnight, no evening /...

We are having our wedding here next year, and thought it would be fun to stay at the Inn overnight to get a glimpse of what our guests will experience. The grounds are charming and peaceful and the staff is extremely welcoming. We loved having breakfast with fellow guests, and we even went for a run on the property grounds....

My wife, daughter, and I had a terrific time staying at the Mount Hope Farm. The guest rooms and common rooms were very well appointed, comfortable, and spotless. If you enjoy staying in a beautiful old farmhouse, this is a great choice.

We just returned from a 3 day weekend to attend our daughter's graduation from Roger Williams University - located minutes up the road. The Inn worked our perfectly for our extended family. We were all able to be together, and enjoy the beauty of the property. The Mt. Hope staff, the food, the setting - everything was perfect. We will...
