Gateway Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The Gateway B&B is a beautifully restored home filled with antiques and period furniture. Such a home could be stuffy -- but the Gateway is not! It's very warm and inviting as are hosts Ken and Sandy. Homemade breakfast is served every morning and we had the benefit of homemade cookies at night -- tho' i don't know if that's the norm. We were very pleased to find how convenient Newport is to Cincinnati -- literally a ten minute drive into downtown where there are great restaurants, the Freedom Center, and the stadiums. The neighborhood where the B&B is located is loaded with similarly restored homes. We spent two hours one snowy morning just walking around and looking at houses. We would readily return to the Gateway.

I stayed at the Gateway B&B to attend a couple of Reds games in Cincinnati. I sincerely enjoyed every minute of it. This is exactly the kind of B&B you see in the movies and you dream of staying at. The hosts are very kind and helpful. Ken actually works at the ballpark and was able to provide me with a lot of background knowledge. Sandy's breakfast is delicious and if you're a baseball fan there's no better place to stay as your hosts are huge fans, too and you are almost certain to meet fellow fans at the breakfast table.

To get to the ballpark you walk through a nice and safe neighborhood of Newport and across the bridge. It's a beautiful twenty minute walk and there's also a shuttle four blocks away if you don't like to walk. Other Newport attractions, including the Levee and the Aquarium, are also nearby, just ten minutes away.

Room Tip: I stayed at the "Nancy" room and was especially happy with the comfortable bed.

My husband and I visited Newport the weekend of Sept 20-22 for our anniversity. We had planned to attend the Octoberfest in Cincinnati. We wanted to stay in a bed and breakfast that was within walking distance. We booked at the Gateway B&B. We loved it! We checked in on late Friday night, walked to the city of Newport to eat and the next day walked across the pedestrian bridge to Cincinnati. The B&B is so convenient to everything. It is also a very beautiful, comfortable old home that has been lovingly cared for. Our room was outfitted with a queen size bed and full bath with jetted tub. It was private and quiet. The breakfast was tastey and filling and the host made you feel like you were family. A huge plus was the off street parking. We would definately recommed and stay again.

Really enjoyed our 2nd Anniversary getaway at the Gateway B & B! Sandy & Ken were so comfortable to be with and made us feel at home. The location is great, too and we walked up Washington to the Levee and enjoyed several stops along the way. The Gateway B & B will be the place we stay again!
P.S. Thanks, Sandy, for remembering and giving us an Anniversary gift of chocolates with your kind note!

We were in town for the Macy Music Fest. We had a wonderful stay at Gateway this weekend. Sandy and Ken were very warm and inviting. Our room was very comfortable, the two person jetted tub was incredible! The decorum in each room was breath taking, I saw something new each time I entered a room. The entire house is simply stunning! Would defiantly recommend!

We had a wonderful two-day stay with Sandy and Ken at the Gateway. The home is beautiful and comfortable and it was very convenient to many Newport attractions and to walk to downtown Cincinnati. Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed talking with Sandy and Ken. We were even fortunate enough to get a demonstration of the player piano and for Ken to sing along! It was a wonderful time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nancy room and it was very comfortable.
