Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

For over a decade,proprietors Gene and Elaine Blood have been welcoming travelers to Hill court Bed and Breakfast, with many of their guests returning summer after summer. One reason is Hill court's enviable location---it offers the quiet green lawns and trees of a residential neighborhood combined with walk-able access to the hustle and bustle of downtown. The guestroom itself (with private bath)is also amazingly private, sitting alone on the third floor and top floor of the sunny residence. Breakfast is another reason people return--fresh pastry,fruit,juices,cereal and coffee or tea all served either inside the cozy kitchen or on the house's beautiful covered deck. As Hill court's only guests on any given visit, you will feel like you are in a home away from home but very near to all that Newport has to offer.

Great stay in Newport

  • 4 of 5

This B&B was a great value and owners are incredibly nice. Jean even drove us into town to get to a wedding we were late for! The bedroom was very comfortable and bathroom had a good shower and bath. Breakfast was more continental style (not homemade) which was fine. Attractions in Newport are about a 15-20 min walk or very short car ride.

Great quiet place in a central location

Elaine and Gene made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Parking was easy, breakfast was nice and simple, and we had everything we needed. If in Newport again, would reach out for a place to stay.

My wife and I traveled down with our 7 week old baby. Elaine and Gene were welcoming and made us feel at home. Their home was wonderful and our experience was excellent! We will definitely come back to stay...
