I love places that are authentic, and this inn didn't disappoint. Our room was understated but lovely, with a roomy bathroom. The common areas are furnished beautifully and the inn is conveniently located. We walked down to Bowen's Wharf for dinner and it was an easy walk down and back. The breakfast was delectable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our brief...

Excellent Bed and Breakfast. This was our second time visiting the inn. The Rooms are charming, comfortable and super clean. Breakfast is laid back, unique and delicious. The best part is the warm hospitality provided by Mark Spring and his entire staff. We will be back. Highly recommended

I Loved this house, we came in late and everything was organised for our arival. You are able to easily walk to Newport and save the hassel of parking. Lovely cooked breakfast that you can either choose to have indoors or out on the back deck. Tea and coffee available all day. We had a beautiful room also.

My husband and I LOVED this place. Such a gem... Wonderful location -- walking distance to downtown Newport, yet away from the noise of those bars and restaurants. Delicious, made-to-order breakfast available daily! The innkeeper & staff were so friendly and helpful.. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

The innkeepers, Mark and Dana, are fantastic hosts and we cannot wait to come back. Our weekend was quiet and relaxing and Mark was incredibly helpful. We enjoyed waking up to the smell of coffee and a delicious breakfast each day.

Young couple owner of 12 years figured it out. The staff really cares about the details, and that is what makes this place pretty special.

Lovely room in classic New England property an easy walk to downtown restaurants. Shower room, however, was tiny. Good standard of breakfast, eaten communally with other guests, although in good weather there is the option of eating outside as a couple.

A quaint house very close to the town centre. Nice Old England room. No tea or coffee facilities in the room but available 24 hours. He even has a “Brit Kettle” available as he knows we like boiling water to make tea! Mark Spring was a fantastic host and the only chef I saw during our 19 day New England...
