Best Newport RI Bed and Breakfast for Couples

With popular attractions like the famed Mansions in Newport RI and the exquisite coastal views along the Cliff Walk, you can expect Newport, RI to be a bustling seaside destination – especially as the busier summer months come into focus. Just like there are plenty of great things to do in Newport, RI throughout the year, there are also plenty of places you can choose as your lodging. None of them, however, compare to our charming Newport RI Bed and Breakfast

Our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast, a historic Federal Period-style Inn, has just five guest rooms. Our intimate size allows us to tailor the guest experience perfectly to our guests’ needs and ensures you won’t have busy or loud crowds to contend with like you would at other, larger properties in town. Instead, it will almost feel like you have our quaint Newport RI Bed and Breakfast to yourselves! 

You’ll immediately feel at ease as you arrive at our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast for your couple’s getaway. Our historic building is in great shape, and the interior architecture and period furnishings go back to a bygone era in beautiful and tasteful ways. It’s certainly not a stuffy relic of the past, but the details in our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast do certainly set a romantic stage for your couples’ getaway. 

Our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast features only five well-appointed guest rooms. Each room has elevated touches, including triple-sheeted luxury linens, private decks, and whirlpool spas. Our spaces are highly curated and perfect for a cozy weekend for two. In the morning, wake up to the delicious aromas of a freshly made breakfast – one of the many perks of choosing our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast over other lodgings in town. Breakfast is usually served in our dining room, but we’ll be happy to provide you with a more intimate experience with breakfast in your guest room if desired.

Though there are plenty of great things to do in Newport, from romantic walks along the coast and sunset sails to quiet tours of the Newport Mansion or visits to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to skip it all and simply indulge in sumptuous meals and cozy afternoons at our charming Newport Inn.

Don’t Miss the Mansions in Newport RI

We’ve mentioned some of our favorite things to do during your couples getaway to our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast already, but there’s little doubt that the #1 attraction in town is to visit the famed mansions in Newport RI. These Gilded Age masterpieces – once the “summer cottages” of America’s wealthiest families, have stood the test of time and preserve an important (and fascinating) piece of American history. 

Today, these summer cottages are managed and maintained by the Newport Preservation Society, and throughout the year, the mansions in Newport, RI, are open for public tours and events. The winter season sees only a few mansions open, but many more will be available by summer for guided and self-guided tours. 

  1. The Breakers is one of the most popular Mansions in Newport. This Vanderbilt family home is the most visited landmark in town and is open year-round. It’s considered the grandest of the mansions in Newport and is undoubtedly a fabulous place to spend an afternoon. 
  2. Marble House, another property of the Vanderbilt family, was one of the first mansions in Newport to be built from stone. 
  3. The Elms, modeled after the mid-18th century French Chateau D’Asnieres, is most famous for housing a collection of paintings, statuary, and tapestries, but this is one of the mansions in Newport famous for its grand, formal gardens with terraces, pavilions, and fountains.
  4. Rosecliff, built by a silver heiress of Nevada, was designed to mirror the Grand Trianon of Versailles. 
  5. Chateau-Sur-Mer is where you go to see high Victorian architecture, including wallpaper, furniture, and stenciling. 
  6. Kingscote is one of the more unique Mansions in Newport, thanks to its Gothic Revival style. 

When you’ve toured the mansions in Newport, we recommend visiting other historic buildings in town. These include the Isaac Bell House, the Green Animals Topiary Garden at the Brayton House, Hunter House, Chepstow, Rough Point, and Blithewold Mansion’s stunning gardens. When you’re done for the day, the relaxing ambiance of our Newport RI Bed and Breakfast will be waiting for you. Book your room today!
