What a wonderful stay over the 4th of July weekend! Ann and Derek were terrific hosts and made our first experience of Newport truly memorable. Their B&B is conveniently tucked within a beautiful historic neighborhood, which provided the benefit of two wonderfully quiet nights of sleep, while being only a short and scenic walk to the downtown harbor area. Our room (the Slater Room) was nicely appointed and very comfortable and clean. Being gluten-intolerant can be challenging when traveling, however, Ann happily accommodated by fixing an amazing multi-course gluten-free breakfast every morning (homemade scones, cakes, waffles, quiche, and more) and provided a special basket of gluten-free snacks in our room, all of which won the approval of a non-gluten-free boyfriend! They both have a wonderful knowledge of the area and were helpful in giving advice on what to see and do each day. We are already looking forward to planning another trip back to Newport and will definitely plan to stay at the Victoria Skylar Bed and Breakfast again.
