About Terri Fitch
Our travels have taken us to many lovely places - but our fondest memories are of the people who made an extra effort to be kind, to be helpful, and who were genuinely warm and welcoming. We hope to provide that same experience for you. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable or convenient, please do not hesitate to let us know!
Terri Fitch purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Terri Fitch chose Fifth Ward
We are native 'Newporters' - and we both grew up in this same great neighborhood. Although Terri moved to New York after college and Mike joined the Air Force . . .there simply is no place quite like Newport! We purchased this lot just before we were married and eventually returned home to our families and our roots. We first lived in a three-family home on the other side of the park and began welcoming guests there in 1996. A few years later, we were ready to build the current Hawthorne House . . .
What makes this Apartment unique
. . . and we designed Hawthorne House specifically with guests in mind. In fact, we asked our guests to tell us what they wanted - and we incorporated their suggestions into the design of the guest suite! Your suite is as private as you would wish. Or, if you are looking for sight-seeing or dining suggestions or if you would like to chat, we are happy to oblige! This is a beautiful residential neighborhood - close to parks and a family-friendly beach. You will enjoy your own deck and gas grill, a large, lovely yard, a private entrance and off-street parking. And yet, you can easily access Newport's dining, shopping, the famous mansions, Cliff Walk, and night life! We look forward to welcoming you to Hawthorne House!

Very clean, best homemade banana bread ever! Well appointed, they thought of everything! Even got me popcorn for the microwave! Hope to be back soon!
Perfect size. Great stay.
Clean. Neat. Perfect for our family of 4 for the weekend. Owners are terrific.
Location, Accomodation, Awesome Vacation!!!!
So pleased with our stay in Newport. Terri and Mike were great. Both were so welcoming and available to answer any questions. Accommodations were perfect for both my husband and myself. It was very homey and comfortable, also very clean. Kitchenette was perfect. Lots of yummy breakfast items provided. Banana bread lived up to previous comments. Delicious! Would definitely recommend. Great location. Near mansions, town and Fort Adams. Hoping to return again.
Terri is the ultimate hostess!
My fiancé and I and our two friends from NYC visited Newport, Rhode Island to tour wedding venues and we stayed our Terri's house for two nights!
We were pleasantly surprised to arrive to home made banana bread and cookies — as well as a fully stocked kitchen and beautifully furnished home. She was the ultimate hostess and sent us a handful of helpful resources on dog friendly restaurants and activities for our weekend away. In an effort to save money, we opted to cook dinner at home on Saturday night and utilized Terri's grille and patio for a lovely outdoor evening. The porch is next to a massive yard, where our dog was able to run around and have fun! It made our stay a lot easier and we really appreciated that.
Terri also had fresh water and orange juice — as well as all the dining ware and grille tools. It totally saved us money! It also is a very short walk to Thames Street. On Saturday we walked to O'briens pub and Bowens Wharf and the location was IDEAL for walking to all of our activities. We loved it so much!
We we're a little bit surprised that the suite was attached to Terri's home — as it looked removed from the main house in photos.
All-in-all it was a lovely stay and we appreciated Terri's attention to detail and warm hospitality. We highly recommend this VRBO.
Thank you! Kelsey
My husband and I were looking for a place to stay to celebrate our anniversary, in Newport , Rhode Island. We stumbled upon Hawthorn House. The reviews were good, and the suite looked nice online, but things are not always as they appear. However, this exceeded our expectations!! Not only was the place clean and comfortable, but the owners, Terri and Mike Fitch, are the nicest people, best hosts , and just overall wonderful! We will stay there everytime we visit Newport, and I think we made a forever friend. They are that special. They care about you, and your comfort, never intrusive, and treat you as if you are family. Just excellent in every way.
