I went to Newport in September 2011 for a friend's wedding. Josie's was an affordable and welcoming option. I was a little hesitant at first, seeing as how there's no way to book a room online with a credit card (I had to mail her a check to hold my room), but I was very pleased with the house and accommodations once we arrived. Josie's cooking is amazing (YUMMY french toast!) and we had the whole upstairs to ourselves (private bathroom while we were there). Really enjoyed ourselves at Josie's and liked that it wasn't crowded. I think if more couples booked that weekend, it would have been tight, but we were pleased since we were one of two couples staying. Would definitely return! The value is great for what you pay for.
