Simple Elegant Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The yacht speaks for itself! It's location makes it simple to get to, with plenty of amenities on board and activities on shore in Newport. The hospitality shown us was personal, warm and inviting. We weren't lost in a vast hotel where we were just a couple in some room, we were meant to feel at home yet affording all the privacy and quiet romance we desired. The fly bridge view and lounge was just as breathtaking in the evening as it was during the day. Waking up the next morning and having a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise from the flybridge was beyond words. So many thanks for such a wonderful weekend getaway! See you again for sure!!!

Wonderful and Unique B&B

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Ocean Romance as a unique place for our family to gather to celebrate a big birthday. We were impressed by the warm welcome from Dave and Jean and the wonderful and fashionable staterooms. Because the Ocean Romance has 3 staterooms, it fit our family perfectly. The yacht has a nice choice of gathering areas to enjoy at different times of the day. Dave and Jean gave us lots of good advice on what to do in the area. The breakfasts were delicious and the blueberry scones were really exceptional. The location of the Ocean Romance was an easy walk to many Newport attractions and restaurants. Walking the Cliff Walk, flying kites at Brenton State Park, sunset on the lawn at Castle Hill, Belle's Diner at the Shipyard, golf at Jamestown golf course, the Newport Marathon, all added up to a memorable celebration. It was one of our best "local" family vacations and we look forward to staying on the Ocean Romance again. Highly recommended!

What a surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very enjoyable experience. Jean and Dave are a great team.

Most extraordinary were the breakfasts! Thanks Jean! (Although, because it was so good, I must admit, I probably ate more than I normally do).

The yacht itself was a VERY nice comfortable, peaceful place. I can't recommend it highly enough. I felt very comfortable. Jean and Dave are great!

Wonderful time being in a very inviting atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Jean are the most gracious host's and welcomed my family, my whole family, when we landed on Goat Island for the family Wedding of the year! It was my goal to find a place to stay that would make our Newport Vacation the most memorable. My oldest daughter said it perfect, "We knocked that one out of the Park" meaning our stay on the "Ocean Romance" will be talked about for years to come. The rest of the Family were jealous that we found such a neat place to drop our Cowboy boots from the West and embrace the East Coast with Full Sail! Waking up every morning on the water is truly magical and I can't imagine anything more romantic! It only took 20 years for my husband and I to take our honeymoon and it was well worth the wait! Why stay in a Hotel when the Floating Bed and Breakfast awaits you! Jean is an outstanding cook and I loved the Quiche and Blueberry Scones! Barry put it perfectly when we got home, "I wish there truly was a time portal that we could do our daily chores then go thru the door and be back on the Yacht!" I knew he really enjoyed his stay as well! Thank you again for your hospitality and the adventure! I do recommend this venue HIGHLY as your next destination vacation! With Love, The Schrock's, Barry, Elaine, Ashley and Megan. P.S. Sorry if the Navy shows up from time to time! : )

A Special Treat on the Water!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent on the Ocean Romance yacht was such a treat; a little slice of heaven on earth! Jean and Dave were very accommodating and helpful in every way. Jean goes out of her way to provide a breakfast that pleases everyone's pallet! It was AMAZING!! We loved spending time in the upstairs room either eating our breakfast or enjoying our mid afternoon snacks. It is a definite plus to the stay! We were amazed how quiet the marina was and enjoyed being away from the busyness of the town. We stayed in the Honey Moon suite which is the roomiest of the bedrooms. Everything was very clean and comfortable! We chose to walk into Newport which took approx. 10 minutes. Most of the shops and restaurants were easily accessed on foot! Be sure to bring comfortable foot wear! We did drive and park at the Breakers when we did the mansion tour and cliff walk. There is no charge to park at the Breakers, which is a plus since parking is difficult and at a premium most spots! I have no reservations in recommending the Ocean Romance for an extremely enjoyable time and a novel treat! I still have a smile on my face! Lesa and Matt
