A Viewpoint
Ranked #67 of 95 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 July 2012

Stayed in the Ocean Cottage for a week in June 2012. The location is excellent! This is a beach condo with no A/C. The large deck has a great view of Bailey's Beach. However it is in full sun all day without any umbrellas for shade. As to amenities, the kitchen is a mismatched selection of dishes and very dated appliances. Bedding is similar. Bathrooms are oddly laid out. I'll repeat myself by saying the location is great.

For those lucky enough to rent the penthouse, it is recently renovated with much nicer amenities!
No A/c in penthouse either and there are hot and muggy days in Newport in the summer.

Room Tip: Rent the penthouse!

We happened to stumble across the ad for the Penthouse at the Viewpoint and so happy we did! There were only two weeks left and we just returned from am amazing vacation! Bob and his wife are super nice and the penthouse had plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 teens. Everything was provided (may want to bring additional TP and paper towels, but bars are soap were there) and the views from the deck were incredible! Less then 5 minutes to a very nice beach and from the trolley stop which takes you into the town area. We did several mansions, polo, and spent a lot of time in town. Ate at several places, with the Red Parrot being our favorite. Stop and Shop close drive for a zip up to get food essentials, with the kids, we enjoyed breakfast in with the views!

If you want an amazing place to stay with very nice owners, gorgeous views, easy transportation to town, this is the place for you!!

Although A Viewpoint is no longer a B&B, the owner Bob rents the 2nd floor (Ocean Cottage) and 3rd/4th floors (Penthouse).

We stayed in the Ocean Cottage on the 2nd floor for Memorial Day weekend. The space looked exactly as pictured with 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a sun room and a large deck with ocean views. The home is located right across the street from Bailey's Beach and is a short drive to downtown Newport. Bob was great and we will definitely return!
