We stayed at the Howland house over a 5 day period when our daughter got married in Newport. It was perfect for our family of 10, including 2 children. The rooms were very clean and there were plenty of towels and linens. It was a great location for us to walk to the various restaurants and shopping areas. We definitely would recommend this property to anyone who needs several rooms for any overnight stays.

Great Stay In Newport!

  • 4 of 5

The Inn was the perfect location for a group of 13 girls who were celebrating a Bachelorette weekend! There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and get ready, with a large communal kitchen. Rosie was very accommodating, welcoming, and helpful from the time I booked the property through the weekend. She made sure the property was ready for us and was able to get in contact with throughout the weekend.

The location could not have been more perfect. You can walk to every restaurant and bar in town. There was no need to drive as we took Ubers to the Vineyard and Castle Hill because they were on the other side of Newport.

I would recommend the Inn to anyone who is looking to travel to Newport with a group of 10-13 people.

Killer location & pretty rooms

  • 4 of 5

The location rocks. You can grab a quick dinner on the warf or run out and get beer. The 3 parking spots were clutch too. We ended our night out at Blues Cafe down the road so it was pretty fun to just walk up the street and be at homebase. Rosie was awesome and had the fridge filled with some food we could eat which was really nice and brought some muffins Sat morning. Thanks Rosie!

If future guests bring anything like donuts or any other sugary thing put it in the fridge. We woke up to ants all in our donut wasn't even opened yet. Also don't sleep in the newly renovated room above the kitchen if you don't like to be woken up by sunlight. There were no blinds yet so we covered or faces with pillows.

Overall killer vacation! Would do it again at the drop of a hat!

Charming B&B with plenty of space in Newport

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 2 families easily fit four adults, 2 children, and 3 teens, with everyone getting a comfortable bed, different sitting areas, and plenty of privacy. The large kitchen provided a gathering place for us all to come together.

The location was perfect, within walking distance of everything we wanted to do, including restaurants, museums, the wharf, the beach, and more.

The thoughtful touches by the host included water bottles in our bedrooms, lending us boogie boards for the beach, tons of beach towels available for our use, and a mid week visit for cleaning and restocking items. He also provided lots of information for our stay, with suggestions for activities and printouts with details.

Everything was just as advertised, true to the description and the photos online. I would highly recommend this property, especially for multi-family groups and reunions.

The only downside was road construction that made parking complicated next to the house.
