“A Very Pleasant Stay!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

First time visit to Newport RI in late July and we stayed at the Ivy Lodge. This Bed and Breakfast is a very impressive, spacious and a Victorian style home spreading over 3 floors. Don and Jackie (owners) are very accommodating and they make sure that your stay is a pleasant one.

Jackie's breakfast is outstanding - waffles, pancakes, etc. - and the daily yogurt table with fruits and granola adds a very nice touch.

Ample parking next to the home. They also have a spacious gallery to just sit back and enjoy a drink and the beautiful greenery that surrounds the home.

WIFI, unfortunately was a little spotty - if that is important to you.

We would have no hesitation returning.

We were pleasantly surprised with the great reception we received the room was large and very nice, the lodge is quite central and walking distance to the main restaurant area. Breakfast was nice and seating at one long table was a nice way of meeting other guests and share their Newport experiences. Owner and staff could not be more helpful, would not hesitate to stay next time.

Extremely friendly staff, beautiful house and nice surroundings!
Unfortunately, we stayed there only 1 night, but we enjoyed it very much. The Ivy Lodge is located near the main mansions, but quite away from town, hence you might need to get the car to reach the main restaurants. The only mistake we made was to follow the advice of the staff regarding where to have dinner.. Breakfast was awesome!

I was traveling solo as a last minute trip away from it all. A friend recommended Newport. After doing about a day of research, I came across the Ive Lodge. Its new owners Don and Jackie were attentive, hospitable, and very helpful! Breakfast was wonderful, the room clean and lucky for me, the other guests were so friendly and engaging! The property and home itself was serene and gorgeous. Im looking so forward to visiting again!

Recently stayed at the Ivy Lodge and found it enjoyable. Clean, comfortable room and bath, fresh fruit and granola offered with the delicious breakfast and gracious hosts. The location was close to the many attractions Newport offers.

I had always wanted to visit Newport. I found the Ivy Lodge by accident online. I was lucky to get a room for my husband and I since other places I found were all ready booked up. I was very pleased with how beautiful this old Victorian home is. Don and Jackie are the new owners of this B&B. They are very laid back and make you feel the same. The breakfasts are delicious and served at a long table that looks like Henry the V111 could have eaten there. Our room was very clean and I would recommend anyone to stay there. I also really loved the proximity to the mansions which is why we were visiting there. In off breakfast hours, there if fruit, chips and energy bars that are left out so generously for the taking. The décor is beautiful inside and out. Don was very helpful showing us the places not to miss in the area and the best beach to go to.

Our family, including our three teens, stayed at the Ivy Lodge for three nights last week. Our kids stayed in the Satterlee Suite which allowed our son to have his own little room away from our girls, and we had the Savannah Room directly above our kids. This lodge is a beautiful old mansion in it's own right. It is decorated with period antiques and is really something special. The location cannot be beat. It is a nice walk to many of the mansions, the Cliff Walk, and the downtown area. The Innkeepers were lovely; very helpful, and friendly. Breakfast was delicious each morning, and they offered snacks, tea, and coffee throughout the day. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. Another reviewer had noted a lack of wifi, but that issue has been remedied. We had wifi in each room. This place is so quiet, we thought we were the only ones in the b&b until we went down for breakfast and saw other guests. If we are ever back in Newport, we will stay at this charming place again.
