We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Ivy Lodge. The home is beautiful and our room was so elegant. The innkeepers were extremely attentive and friendly. Breakfast was fabulous! The Ivy Lodge is convenient to the mansions, Ocean Drive, and downtown shopping and restaurants. I would definitely return to vist the Ivy Lodge again.

Our recent visit to Ivy Lodge was so special. This home was built in 1886 and is meticulously maintained. We enjoyed the beauty of the home and our lovely room, the attentiveness of the innkeepers and the delicious gourmet breakfast.

This past visit was our third and we'll keep coming back. We've now stayed in 3 different rooms all of which are charming and have a character of their own. Van Alen, Turret and now the Trunk rooms have all been wonderful. Breakfast was delicious as always. Great lace to unwind. close to the mansions and a quick drop into town for the action and experience of Newport harbor. Sine they have 8 rooms, I guess we'll have 5 more trips to plan.

Room Tip: We'd have to say they are all wonderful rooms.

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We are pleased you enjoyed the accommodations. We especially like that you are sharing the fact that the Ivy is in a great location. We are in town, yet located in a quite, private residential neighborhood . . . close to all that Newport has to offer, which can be exhausting at the end of the day; This is were your lodgings and it's amenities come to the forefront. We hope to see you again one day and wish you a sweet spring and glorious summer.

Beautiful property, outside of town but walking distance to everything, including amazing Cliff Walk. Service and food were terrific, setting was lovely and peaceful and we would absolutely return here and recommend to others. Interim innkeepers Durell & Cathy Wood were so gracious and friendly we hope to see them in another inn sometime soon!

We have been back to the Ivy lodge several times, often to celebrate an anniversary. Darlene and Daryl are always warm and welcoming, and we had a wonderful time with Cathy and Durell, who were the interim hosts during our most recent stay. The rooms are large, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. We love the quiet location just outside of town and walking distance to the cliff walk and the mansions. Once we found this very special place, we've made a point of returning as often as we can.

Room Tip: All beautiful

Thank you to Durell and Cathy for all your help. We stayed in the Turret Room which was wonderful, comfortable and clean. Unfortunately getting sick, we didn't get to experience Newport the way we wanted. But there is no doubt that we will come back and stay at the Ivy Lodge. The location was great. Easy to walk to the mansions and a short ride to the restaurants in town. Breakfast was delicious! Thanks again for a beautiful place to stay. Looking forward to returning.

My wife and I stayed in the Trunk Room during our March 2012 stay and would highly recommend the room and the property in general. The hosts Daryl and Darlene were great and friendly. They were in the process of bringing in interim Inn Keepers Kathy and Darrell who also were extremely friendly and accommodating. The facility fits right in with the historic area and the hosts were happy to explain the history of the property. The location was perfect since most of the museums and attraction were within walking distance of the property. We will be back and highly recommend others to put the Ivy Lodge on the top of their list for places to stay while in Newport.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the Trunk Room
