There was plenty of room for all and the location was perfect. We could walk to everything downtown and took Ubers to Newport Vineyard. Definitely recommend this house!

Stunning classic New England property in downtown Newport

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and classic looking New England rental, close to all the downtown Newport sights and dining. Kitchen is gorgeous--looks like newly renovated. Ample sleeping space for a large group. Having the private bath and sitting area for each suite was an amazing added bonus! Loved the character of the place and would recommend for a large group staying in Newport, looking for walking distance to everything.

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.
