We stayed at the Belle View Inn over the 4th of July holiday weekend and we couldn't have had a better experience. The Inn was within walking distance of shops, restaurants, Cliff Walk and the mansions. Private parking was provided, which was great as the Women's US Open was taking place while were there and it's quite the commodity.

There were two couples and we reserved both rooms/suites and it was PERFECT. The rooms were beautiful, each complete with 4 poster beds, beautiful furnishings, private bathrooms and sitting rooms. It gave us enough space to share alone time with our significant others, but the sitting rooms and outside deck (located between our two rooms) was perfect for all of us to gather in. We enjoyed breakfast out on the deck each morning and relaxed on the deck at the end of our day and before heading out to dinner.

Breakfast was perfect and a great start to the day. One note: if you're used to a hot breakfast at a B&B then you might be a little disappointed. However, we were please with the selection of fresh pastires, fruits, yogurt and juice and cerals. We were able to eat at our leisure in our sitting room or on the deck.

There were lots of other nice touches that you don't always find at B&Bs. Homemade cookies and granola bars were placed out for guests in the afternoons/evenings. The fridge was always filled with juice, yogurt smoothies and water - which we loved! Each room came complete with it's own fridge, tv in the bedroom and sitting room, and glasses and dishes. We were able to have a bottle of wine and cheese to wind down in the afternoons. The bathrooms towels were fluffy and soft and some nice toiletries were provided: my favorite was the Tom's of Maine toothpaste!

Lastly, the owners provided a nice comprehensive list of restaurants in various price ranges and food tastes to visit and they were always very willing to accommodate or recommend additional options.

We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again in the future!

The Belle View Inn is a great place to stay in Newport. The location was fantastic, just behind the Tennis Hall of Fame and one block off Belleview Avenue and its cottages. The Inn contains two 2-room suites. Each one has a brand new marble bath. Suite consists of bed/bath and a sitting room. Both rooms have a tv which is great. Sitting room also has a small refrigerator and microwave as well as portable table and bar stools. There is secured onsite parking which evidently is a big deal in Newport. Bath had plenty of nice thick towels. Rooms were spotlessly clean.

Owners are extremely friendly and knowledgable about Newport. She was able to recommend several good restaurants. Breakfasts are self-serve continental, but heavy enough to get your day started. Fresh baked muffins, fruit, dry cereal, oatmeal, juices, coffee, yogurt, milk. Trays are available to take you breakfast either in your room or a lovely outdoor patio.

Cliff Walk is close by. The Elms is a 5 minute walk. You can walk downtown to the harbor area with great shops and restaurants in about 15-20 minutes. A grocery, drug store and ice cream parlor are a 5 minute walk away. We only had to use our car once while we were there. We highly recommend the Belle View and would stay there again.
