“A Christmas Gem”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We decided we needed a quiet holiday break before the chaos of the real holiday descended. With the pet caravan in tow, off we set to Noreen's charming Christmas grotto, and we were not disappointed. Of course it was off season in Newport, but we were delighted and surprised by how much time and care Noreen had taken to make us feel extra special. Christmas decorations, lights, a tree, cozy fireplace, presents for puppy and kitten...need I say more! We can't wait to return during warmer weather and make good use of the pool and doggy park. What a find.

What a great find!! We were lucky to find this place and glad that we did. This B&B was located away from all the drama and crowds of downtown and located in a nice residential neighborhood. The location was only a 5 minute walk to Bellevue Avenue and even a shorter walk to a beautiful park where you could walk, play with the dog, and just relax. We stayed in the Suite and it felt like our own little home. We had our own driveway parking spot and we could walk out from our Suite to our own patio overlooking the pool. Our Suite was clean and well maintained. It was downright cozy and charming. Since we were here in mid-October, the entire premises was tastefully decorated with Halloween and Fall decor. You can tell, Noreen, the owner, takes great pride in what she does. Since we were in town for the United Healthcare Marathon, it was an added bonus that my family could walk 5 minutes and see me run down Bellevue Avenue...which happened to be mile 10 1/2 on the course. This was a great value and there is no doubt we would come back here during our next trip up to Newport.

My husband and I were married June 22, 2013 and knew we wanted to be on the water for our honeymoon. I was turned onto flipkey.com, and I found Noreen’s wonderful place close to Newport, water, gorgeous gardens and cute rooms. We ate Lobster out; we got sushi one night and ate by the coy pond. Walked to the beach, cooled down at the pool on hot days and drank wine in the salt water hottub at night. Noreen was a wonderful host, we’re thinking about going back and always staying at the Murray House. It’s barely a mile away from down town. I would never stay anywhere else. Thanks Noreen in Newport. June 25-June 30.

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.
