My family and I visited the Mansion during one of their Murder Mystery Weekends and I must say it was GREAT!! The whole extravaganza was so well put together and the people (which include the Mansion as well as the Murder Mystery company) put a lot of thought into the event. Every single detail was thought out and worked perfectly... More

First of all I would like to say that this Inn was the best place we have stayed in a very long time. We travel quite a bit and most places just hand you a key and want you to leave. We were only staying there a couple nights but there was enough information provided to stay a week or... More

We rented the entire inn for our family vacation to Newport this summer. When we arrived (three sets of grandparents and two children included) it was raining, and we were asked to wait outside in the rain (after 1:00 in the afternoon) because they were still cleaning the rooms. We were not even permitted to sit inside in the library... More

I stayed at the architect’s inn for a short weekend stay. Brian the owner was extremely friendly, nice, polite and a gracious host. I especially enjoyed the breakfast he served every morning. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The house in itself is a very charming old Victorian house. I mostly sat on the veranda or kicked up my... More

The service was great! Breakfast each morning was special with homemade muffins, fruit, and anything from stuffed french toast to quiche. We were lucky to have weather that permitted us to eat on the porch every morning. Our room was clean and comfortable.

Spent an evening at this bed and breakfast which turned out to be more of a boarding house.

I am so sorry you had a bad experience. I don't know what to say about the towel except that either housekeeping accidentally used way too much bleach or you must be really really strong.
