1 Murray House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #15 of 96 Newport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2013

My fiancee and I stayed in the water-view suite which was actually across the street from Murray House. We stayed for the long holiday weekend, and enjoyed staying in what felt like our own min-apartment. This unit has a mini-kitchen with stove top, sink and mini-fridge. We brought along some of our own food, and it worked out really well.
Noreen was very nice and not intrusive at all, we saw her once, but she checked in with us often via email to make sure all was going well. This B&B is a close 5-10min walk to the ocean and cliff paths. We walked in to town a few times (about 2miles away) and it wasn't bad at all, a straight shoot down the road and you're there if you don't mind the walk. Bars & restaurants in the downtown area are plentiful & easy to find something you'll like.
We really enjoyed the hot tub & pool across the driveway at the main house.

My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room for 5 nights for our summer vacation with our dog, Squirt. Noreen was very accommodating and welcoming. She also sent us a ton of useful information about Newport prior to our arrival. Our room was small, but perfect for us. It was very clean and the semi-private outdoor patio was great for our dog. Murray house is a beautiful property and the gardens are amazing. The location is away from the busy parts of town and we liked that. We walked every morning and could quickly get to the beach, the cliff walk, the mansions, and Rovensky park which our dog loved. Squirt also loved the treats and toys Noreen left for her! We had a great experience staying at Murray House and would definitely stay there again if we make it back to Newport.

My fiancee stayed at Murray House for 5 nights during our summer vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Noreen is wonderful and truly loves animals. We brought our puppy Lulu and Noreen was so welcoming (I think they formed a special bond). We had the garden room with a private backyard, which turned out nicely for Lulu. Coming from NYC, she was in heaven!

The property is beautiful -- it has a nice pool and really fantastic flowers. It is very close to beaches and the Newport mansions. We brought our bikes and were very comfortable exploring most of Newport that way.

We really loved our stay at Murray House and plan to return again soon!

We travel with our dog and appreciate the fact that this property is pet-friendly. Noreen, the owner, recommended the Garden Room which turned out to be a great location. It was more private with a garden area that could be gated in so that we did not need to leash our dog at all times. The room was a little small, but we found it to be clean and well maintained and the kitchenette was well supplied. The breakfast was delivered to our door and was delicious and well presented. The yard was very well landscaped and the pool area was a great place to relax. The Murray House is well located, being away from the downtown area, but close to the mansions and Cliff Walk.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is perfect when travelling with a pet.

Went here with a friend for a 4 day weekend with our two little dogs. Had the waterview suite and it was perfect for what we wanted. A quiet relaxing weekend with our dogs. Park and beach are a five minute walk which we took daily with the pups and wrapped around to "mansion row" which is a 2 minute walk away. Everything you need is a 5 minute drive, the town, the wharf area and excellent restaurants (dog friendly too!). Noreen was very helpful and greeted us when we arrived, we took advantage of the yard and pool which were great! Our room was not in the main house which worked out great as I have a very alpha toy poodle. Located in a very quiet area so it was extremely peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of NYC that we are used to! Nice change of pace and would come back.

We stayed at the Murray House for three nights in mid-June, and Noreen was a wonderful host not only to us but our two cats that accompanied us. The location is quiet and a short walk away from Bellevue Street to the mansions with easy access to the Cliff Walk. She had a cancellation so she upgraded us to the Pool Room without additional charge to give the kitties (and us) a bit more room. Breakfast is wonderful and is delivered directly to your door. With a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room, it was the ideal way to start the day. It was still too early to use the pool, but it looked inviting with ample deck space. The koi pond is tranquil and the entire setting at Murray House makes for a perfect holiday.

Room Tip: The bathroom in the Pool Room is up a couple of steps, so be sure you handle this in the middle of t...

My husband and I recently stayed at Murray House in Newport RI. It is a very quaint & quiet B & B. It is a little off the beaten path which makes it a perfect place to stay. Its only a short car ride to the Mansions and to downtown Newport. We stayed in the Pond view room which overlooks Almy Pond. I enjoyed my coffee while taking in the view. It was very relaxing. A hot, delicious breakfast was served to our room each morning. My husband loved it & I loved not having to clean up! Noreen was a wonderful hostess & made our stay in Newport a memorable one. Thank you Noreen! We will definitely be back.
