Recent Newport reviews
"Very comfortable house. The second and third floors easily accommodated our ten family members. It's close enough to the "downtown" area to make walking and shopping tours a snap. We took advantage of this proximity often although the house is easy to drive to and from for "road trips". (We just HAD to see Martha!) The property was very clean and well appointed (games, books, TVs, etc.). Hope we return to the east coast sometime soon to revisit this grand old house."

"Hi, 3 of us stayed on the 3rd floor of this rental this past weekend for a wedding in Newport. The place was perfect and Shannon was great to work with. It felt like home. The bathroom is in one of the rooms so make sure your group is friendly. The place had everything you needed for a weekend getaway. I would stay here again in a heartbeat."

"Our extended family and friends had a wonderful stay in this magnificent Newport home! After driving 11 hour from Toronto, Canada we appreciated very much it's Location, Location, Location! Everything is within easy walking distance, which made it easy to explore the town and stretch our legs. The entrance to the "Cliff Walk "is only a brief 10 minute walk from the house! The harbour and shopping all just down the street. John welcomed us into his lovely home and made us feel right at ease, with his warm, helpful personality. After giving us a tour of the house and a few instructions, left his home for us to use as our own. Also conveniently left for guests to peruse is a binder filled with Newport and surrounds information, plus important local phone #"s.
The house has a wonderful layout, with numerous spots to gather in groups for conversation or if one felt the need to sit off on your own, the lovely living room, library, or dining room offered alternatives. The two large and comfortable very private front and back porches which are surrounded by lovely gardens, were a real treat, one with a porch swing that all enjoyed and plenty of seating for everyone. The large roomy kitchen was were most of us would gather for breakfast and to make plans for the day around the cosy kitchen table with bench style seating overlooking the beautiful backyard, or have evening catch-up conversations about our varied day's activities. All bedrooms were ample size with very comfortable beds.
We were very lucky to have been able to book this location as the Newport Boat Show happened to be on the same weekend that we were attending a special family wedding at the magnificent Rosecliffe mansion, only 10 min. away by car! There were 10 of us all together, who although arriving at different times thru our four day stay, the home accommodated us very comfortably even on the days that we were all there. We were even able to invite a few members of the wedding party over to "our" house to join us for a pizza dinner before they were departing back to NYC. We have more to do and see in Newport so would not hesitate to book again.
Highly recommended. 5 STAR Rating"

"We recently visited our home state, Connecticut, and rented this lovely gem in Newport for two weeks. It was perfect. The location is great, lovely sunsets, the house impeccable and so comfortable. We enjoyed entertaining our friends and family without a doubt. The house is well appointed. If you would like to stay in an historic neighborhood, friendly, this is your place. Easy to get to the action!! John couldn't have been more helpful."
