Newport house description

George Champlin Mason House & Inn Bliss
We offer you one of two Victorian Inns in Newport that are ranked very high on Trip Advisor. They can be rented as a House Rental or as B&B. One Victorian Inn is located in downtown Newport with just a short walk to the mansions, Thames Street, Easton's Beach or Cliff Walk. Just one block off Bellevue Ave, we are located in the old historic hill of Newport. You will be right in the center of the island's major attractions. If you are a history buff, nature lover, gardener or antiquer, you will appreciate this home for its beauty and sophistication. You can rent the B&B rooms individually OR rent as a house rental all to yourselves.

                            We really enjoyed our stay at this elegant home. The entrance was warm and inviting, the living and dining rooms were comfortable and maintained with the grace and style of the late 1800’s. Breakfast was delicious and well served. But most of all, the service related to our reservation with late arrival and timely breakfast allowed us to begin our day on schedule. The process was smooth and convenient. In the evening we were able to walk to downtown Newport to enjoy the sights, shops and restaurants. Then we walked back to the quiet neighborhood for a relaxing rest. Great job! I would definitely stay there again!

                            The Inn was gorgeous. The room was charming. The decor was lovely.We loved the fireplace near the bed! It made for a very romantic evening. The location was great. It was close to restaurants and other attractions. The Inn keeper's recommendations of restaurants and nightlife was knowledgable and very helpful. The minor problems with towels and water were addressed within minutes. I was surprised that breakfast was not included in the room rate. Even so, I recommend this historic Newport Inn.

                            My girlfriend and I came here for a weekend getaway and can't say enough good things about this place; the building is beautifully maintained and a short walk from just about everything in Newport. Service was stellar, and the breakfast the next morning was fantastic. We weren't able to meet Nick, but Brian was a fantastic host, and made us feel truly welcome. If you're looking for a stellar bed and breakfast in Newport, this is it!

                            After a 5 and a half hour drive in traffic from New York, we were in a sour mood. This mood was immediately erased by the quaintness and beauty of the architect inn. Nick and Brian were extremely welcoming hosts and it was a pleasure to share our meals with them and the other guests of the Inn. Not only were they fantastic proprietors, they batted 1000 when it came to recommendations for things to do. I highly recommend asking for the redwood room. The room was extremely cozy and the bed was very comfortable. We have every intention of returning to the inn.

                            We just spent three nights at the Architects Inn and we will be returning! This place has it all! Perfect location, great hospitality, and beautiful, cozy rooms! The breakfasts were plentiful, original and perfectly prepared; you will not be disappointed! Nick and Brian are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to ensure you're stay is comfortable and fulfilling. They are very aware of what Newport has to offer and will point out the best places for you to spend your vacation. Overall, staying at the Architects Inn made our vacation absolutely perfect and I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Newport area!

                            We were floored at the beauty of the Architect's Inn from the moment we walked through the front door. Every inch is decorated with antiques and the house itself is very well preserved. Our room looked great (we immediately sent pictures to our friends) and was very comfortable (despite the Victorian foundation the bed was more comfortable than at home and the shower had excellent hot water pressure). Nick & Brian were wonderful hosts, providing a great breakfast each morning and great tips of things to do around town (all of which were a short walk away). We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

                            After having read the positive reviews, we made a reservation for two nights at Architect's Inn. We can confirm that it is as good as the reviews say. In fact, we extended our stay for two additional nights since we enjoyed it so much. The room was nicely decorated and very clean and Nick and Brian are super-friendly. Next time we are going to Newport we know where to stay. Highly recommended!

                            Have just returned from Newport, where we stayed at this B & B. The whole experience, staying there, was wonderful.The house is nicely located, close to town, for walking, but removed enough, to ensure peace and tranquility. Getting a peaceful night sleep is important to me, and there, you will get it, as the neighborhood is quite.The mansion, brings you back to The Guilded Era, the home is large, stately and filled with period furniture.The side porch is great for relaxing outside.The guestrooms are perfect, comfortable and most with fireplaces, that work! The morning breakfast is stunning, something different everyday, beautifully served and presentation of the food is at a level worthy of the era, this house represents.It is all so perfect, that I am planning on returning in the fall for another relaxing stay.The owners are two very special and charming young men.Recommended by me to all...simply wonderful!

                            The inn is a perfect home away from home and is close to everything Newport has to offer. The rooms are spacious and clean with lots of details that makes them warm and welcoming and the decor makes you feel as being a part of the gilded age. One of the best things about the place is the innkeepers that make you feel welcome and they are also a great source of information about Newport and surroundings. The breakfast is amazing with new dishes every day where quality and attention to the details is never forgotten. The only bad thing we have to say about The Architect's is that we unfortunately aren't able to go there more often.

                            After a tedious and long flight from Munich to Boston, a 2 hour drive from Boston to Newport, and a short search I found the Architects Inn finally. It is not far from the center of Newport but located in a really quiet neighbourhood. The location is simply great, it is only 10 min walk to the nearest beach and the same time to the waterfront. Architects Inn is ran by Nick and Brian who care not only for the house and the garden but were absolutely helpful to make my stay as relaxing and pleasant as possible. The rooms are clean and beautifully equipped with old wooden furniture and historic painting on the walls. The breakfast cooked by Brian is simply great. Each day a new surprise and all this arranged with lots of love and taste. I spent many hours on the spacious porch to prepare conference talks in the morning and to relax in the evening. I really recommend the Bed&Breakfast and hope to come back a future day.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: Brian is a nurse with a gentle spirit. His passions are gardening and cooking. He is a Master Gardner and designs and maintains the grounds. Nick is an entrepreneur with a few small businesses. He works hard and plays hard. He is a naturalist and likes to travel.

                          Why the Owner Chose Newport:
                          I chose Newport to live because it the only place in the world that has everything. It is an island in New England so it has four seasons but the seasons are mild. Newport is a busy, bustling city in the summer time but in the winter it is a quaint New England village. Rhode Island has over 400 miles of pure sand beaches with pristine, clean waters. You will see the air is fresh and the sounds are freshing. Newport is a fantastic walking and biking city. For years when I first moved here, I never even owned a car. I just walked everywhere because it was so easy. The locals range from your average, boat-builder 'Joe' to the yuppy, billionaire 'Winston'. The conversations you will have when you sit down at the docks or in one of the many local bars is just unbelievable. It feels like a European town. You will notice how many people are trim and healthy. People dress nicely and treat everyone with respect. Newport is out of this world.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The greatest thing is our location is perfect. You can ask anyone who lives in Newport and they will all say that our neighborhood is the most ideal location. It is a relaxing, safe, quiet residential street filled with big, old, early Victorian mansions, yet it is an easy walk to either side of the island. We are located right in the center of Newport. In a jiffy, I can walk to the beach for a healthy jog on Cliffwalk in the morning or I can just as quickly stroll down to Thames Street for a delicous dinner at a wine bar. It is safe and secure so it comfortable to walk home at night from the nightclubs and bars. The house itself is a masterpiece. It is 99% genuine antiques from the Gilden Age of Newport. The architect built it as a summer home so it requires very little air conditioning in the summer to keep it comfortable. The bannisters and crown moldings are just exquiste. The rooms are terrific. The yard is completely screened in with natural scrubs and trees providing a private space to decompress. You will feel so at home when you are here, sipping wine on the verandah watching the birds, rabbits and squirrels.
