I want to talk about the overall Newport mansions/”cottages” experience as a whole, so maybe this Bellevue Avenue topic is the best place to put this. This is a beautifully preserved slice of what is called the “Gilded Age” of the wealthiest of Americans. Some...More

Bellevue Drive feels like you are on a movie set as it is filled with incredible mansions and manicured lawns that you never see in real life! It is worth driving here just to see the ironwork on the gates, let alone the buildings.

A nice little historic landmark a few blocks from the harbor. A little disjointed, the hotel occupies two different buildings. We stayed at 30 Bellevue on the third floor. The room was small but adequate for our needs. We were not in Newport to watch...More
