“KBs of Cape Cod”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We just got back from a restful weekend at the Artful Lodger. Lisa and Randy were fantastic hosts. They served us a gourmet breakfast (better than anything we would ever have had out) that kept us going until dinner both days and they proved to be quite the authority on local area attractions. Our 2nd floor suite accommodations were very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the hot tub in our room! The Inn is within walking distance to downtown Newport which is loaded with quaint shops and restaurants. The view from the 3rd floor balcony which overlooks the harbor is breathtaking. The sitting room on the 1st floor is decorated tastefully with 2 wingback chairs giving the place a warm inviting feeling.
Thank you Lisa and Randy for a great weekend!

I was also part of the recent "takeover" of this inn over the St Patrick's Parade weekend. What a great weekend we all had at the Artful Lodger! Our accommodations were very comfortable and the innkeepers, Lisa and Randy, were so gracious and welcoming that it really felt like it became our home for the weekend. The breakfasts were fabulous and were even more enjoyable because of the incredible view and relaxed atmosphere. I will look forward to staying there again if I can get back for another Newport weekend!

Had another great St. Paddy's Day birthday weekend at the Artful Lodger. This was the second year my girl and I stayed here for St. Paddy's Day and had another couple join us, as Newport is a great town to celebrate and they throw an awesome parade. The new inn keepers Lisa and Randy were so hospitable as well as very good cooks and hosts. This also turned into a family reunion as my Mom and 3 siblings were there to surprise me when I arrived. I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating Lisa and Randy were all weekend. We had 4 of the 7 rooms and everyone loved the place. I can see this becoming an annual tradition.

Room Tip: My room was upgraded at no charge (maybe a birthday present) and I would recommend the front room on...

My Boyfriend and I, his family and some friends took over this inn for St. Patrick's Day weekend to celebrate a 60th birthday. We stayed here last year with different inn keepers and were impressed. This year the new inn keepers, Lisa and Randy really were over the top. They were so accommodating considering our large group, the rooms were in wonderful shape and very comfortable (they gave the birthday boy an upgrade) and the food was delicious. They not only tended to our needs but added a few extra niceties like a late night dish of brownies. We felt at home and those of our group that were here for the first time loved the whole atmosphere especially the view from the breakfast room on the 3rd floor. Thanks Randy and Lisa for making our celebration extra special.

Lovely place to stay. The Inn keepers were so friendly and accommodating! The Inn has a charming antique setting. Close to all the Mansions and shopping. They serve a wonderful breakfast in the upstairs dining area with a wonderful view.

Room Tip: I made a mistake on the rating of pool and fitness center for they do not have either.

The artful lodger is very clean and inviting. No skimping on bedding and decor... the bed was exceptionally comfortable. KUDOS to the new inn keepers Lisa & Randy who went out of their way to make us feel pampered by serving fresh fruit salad "yuuuum", poached egg caprese, blueberry pancakes after learning we were from NC Randy personalized breakfast w southern style biscuits & gravy and great convo. THANKS guys for the sightseeing tips....great pics! we will b back.... tracey & tammy ;)
