Where do I start? This place is amazing. My wife and I took our two young daughters (ages 5 and 4) here for the weekend and couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the perfectly appointed kitchen, to the comfy beds and plentitude of clean, soft sheets and blankets, this house has it all. Located a stone's throw from Thames St., you'll be walking distance to all kinds of shopping, restaurants, pubs, and cupcake parlors. Historical sites and buildings surround you, including the next door neighbor's house (used as wartime headquarters for the French Count Rochembeau, and visited by Washington, Lafayette and all kinds of important figures during the Revolution). A short drive to tour the mansions on Ocean Drive loops around and ends right back at the Anna Pell house. It's a clean, light-filled, spacious and warm home with everything you need on cold New England nights. Games, cards, movies and a super-comfy couch/futon for guests (my brother-in-law slept like a baby after coming to visit one night from Providence, which is just 40 minutes away). The owners, Katie and Nord were so friendly, accommodating and attentive– they even mailed my jacket and scarf back to me after I realized I left it. In short, if there were a 6th star, I would have added it to this rating. You'll be delighted by the Anna Pell house.

Center of Newport

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This lovely and spacious 2 bedroom upstairs unit actually has three sleeping areas and a great kitchen with everything you need. Only one block away from shopping, restaurants and the whole waterfront. And the visitor center, where you can catch all the tours, is only a 5 min walk. And the only Starbucks in Newport is just around the corner!!

Very Comfortable Stay in an Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Anna Pell housefor the Labor Day weekend. The accommodations were perfect -- everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, spacious kitchen and living area, eclectic decor and the location is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The apartment has it's own entrance and we were able to come and go without disturbing our hosts. There were thoughtful touches that made our stay easier -- bottled and filtered water in the refrigerator, welcome basket of goodies, fully equipped kitchen, smart dvd player, wifi and even specially ground coffee for the french press coffee maker. We appreciate that our host family lives "green", with recycling and composting bins in the apartment. Thanks, Katie!!

Beautiful, Special and Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying here! It was beautiful, clean and Katie and Nord are very welcoming and gracious. You will want for nothing. The first day we arrived there will two baskets stuffed with treats, bottled water in the fridge and they even supplied beach chairs and a beach umbrella! You will love it here!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

It's been close to a year since I stayed there. But since I'm going back to Newport in two weeks I was thinking about my trip last year and how I forgot to rate it.

I go to the Newport Folk Festival every year and last year I went with my wife, two kids (3 and 5 at the time), another couple and their young son. The property was very nice and there was plenty of space.

Katie and Nord were so accommodating . They didn't seem to mind the noise that three kids could make or us having to remove some of the decor to avoid anything being broken. They were there for anything we needed and were just a pleasure to talk to socially.

I'm going to Newport solo this year but next year when the wife and kids come with me again, I'm checking the availability of the Anna Pell House first.

Beautiful home, charming hosts

  • 5 of 5

This well-maintained and beautifully furnished home is located a block from the harbor. We parked our car upon arrival and hardly used it again until we left. Most importantly, Nord and Katie couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly, clearly eager that we enjoy our stay, and even offering us an additional day for free when it became available; we felt more like old friends than paying guests. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on my next trip. If you're planning a visit to Newport with 3-4 friends, this is where you should stay.
