“Warm and inviting hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

We recently spent 3 days in Newport to end our fall colors east coast tour. The Hawthorne House is a nice alternative to the normal Inns and Hotels, yet conveniently close to all of Newport.Terri and Mike were excellent hosts, and Terri always had homemade cookies or banana bread available. The room is a warm and cozy one bedroom suite with a small kitchenette and den, and is the perfect place to rest in between exploring the Newport mansions or the fabulous dining in Newport. (Terri and Mike have great recommendations for things to see and do in Newport) If you're feeling adventurous, ask Mike to take you for a tour of the Cliffwalk. We felt like we were coming back to the family home each evening and will definitely stay again.

I stayed here in September for my 30th birthday with three girlfriends. In addition to chips and salsa and a plate of cookies there was a bottle of champagne and a "Happy Birthday, Liz!" sign waiting for us upon our arrival! The owners, Terri and Mike, were so friendly and accommodating. They allowed one of my friends to store a birthday cake in their refrigerator and even set it out for us when we returned from dinner.

The space worked well for four people; there was enough seating and enough space that we weren't tripping over each other and our bags the whole weekend. We also enjoyed the deck, and the mini-kitchenette was well-stocked.

The only possible trade-off is the location. Downtown and the Cliff Walk are within walking distance, but are somewhat of a far walk. This means that you avoid the crowds, but also that you might end up occasionally doing some driving and running into the hassle of finding/paying for parking downtown. Given how much space we had in the suite itself, this was a reasonable trade-off for us to make.

Hawthorne House is a great choice for people who like a homey environment when they travel and who love to meet and interact with people who live in the location they are traveling to. I would DEFINITELY stay here again and would recommend Hawthorne House to others. Terri and Mike made my birthday extremely memorable.

The owners of this nice B&B couldn't have been more lovely. The B&B was clean and tidy; the terrace en suite was a bonus. The homemade breakfast breads were plentiful and delicious. We were made to feel at home.

The owners did not however advertise that they were smokers. While our unit did not smell of smoke, the entry foyer to the unit did and was an unwelcome sensation upon arrival. Additionally, the air conditioning units in the windows were noisy, squeaked and cycled off and on. During our stay, the owners entered the unit during the day to tidy and to turn off the AC units which left our rooms hot and damp upon our evening arrival.

Aside from these few issues, Hawthorne house was in a great location to beach and town, and the owner hospitality was warm and inviting.

We went to the Hawthorne House in Newport for a long weekend and I honestly could not have asked for a more perfect place. HH is conveniently located near downtown Newport and within walking distance to a gorgeous beach. But what impressed me most about the HH were the owners, Terry and Mike who were SO welcoming. They did so many little extras that made our stay extra special. I could not recommend a better place to stay in Newport!

We stayed for a long weekend at the Hawthorne House B&B. The suite was even roomier than expected, and the food and amenities were super. Terri and Mike couldn't have been nicer - just the right balance between friendly and non-intrusive. They were always looking out for our comfort and satisfaction and they even had treats for our dog! Rarely have we felt more taken care of. The location was great, near "the sights" as well as pleasant walks around neighborhood parks. We'll definitely go back when we can.

we stayed at Hawthorne House for a weekend in July with our teenage daughter, I have to say i could not have asked for more. This place is wonderful! It's like having your own little apartment.Terri and Mike the inkeepers are such wonderful people they make you feel right at home,the suite is large with a big living room with pull out couch,a small kitchen with everything you could think of, a good sized bathroom and big bedroom,We loved how Terii always had goodies waiting for us when we returned back to the room.I cannot say enough about Hawthorne House we absolulely loved it. This is where we will be staying from now on when we make our trips to Newport.

Well, I must say that our stay at the Hawthorne House was very nice. Terry, Mike, and their daughter, Christina were all very accommodating and were more than willing to go out of their way to make our visit as pleasant as possible.

The location is within walking distance from most of the mansions, the “cliff walk” and beaches. Located across the street from the park, we were able to walk our dog and play with our son without getting in the car and driving. It is also very close to the downtown wharf area were you'll find restaurants and various tours.

The B & B is set-up to accommodate only one party at a time, so you get all of their attention and care! The kitchen was well stocked with fresh fruits, cereal, orange juice, milk, coffee cake, and everything else you need for your breakfast. There was a fold out bed in the living room for our 4 yr. old son, and our dog was greeted with some tasty treats upon arrival.

One night my wife and I decided to go on a date and hired Christina (a professional babysitter) to baby sit our son! Not only that we were able to enjoy some time alone but he also enjoyed Christina's company and felt very comfortable with her.

Thank you for the great hospitality and lodging, we will be back!
