Stayed 2 nights at the Armistead Cottage with our daughter & son-in-law ! Charles was there to welcome us with a smile at 12:30 am when we arrived..at 9:00 am Ramona, busy making a creative and delicious breakfast, took the time to say hello and right away we knew, this was our home away from home ! Immaculately clean and comfortable, beautiful & imaginative decor, not to mention the carrot room where one cannot spend enough time browsing the carrot themed surroundings. There is no place else to stay in Newport ! THANK YOU RAMONA & Charlies, for a most enjoyable weekend, Leslie & David p.s. I was thinking that Brooklyn could use a B& B
WEINER STYLE, guranteed "no vacancy" ! just puttin it out there :)

Thanks you so much for your kind words and sharing your experience with other Tripadvisor readers. It was so wonderful meeting all of you and talking about NYC and Whitestone. Maybe next time you come to Newport I will try to stay up late to welcome you. Thanks for the B&B idea in Brooklyn, you never know. Wishing you all the best and looking forward to your return, Romana and Charles

well any place with a carrot museum is going to be fun. It is clear that Ramona has a real zest for life which she shares with her guests. Breakfast was great, dinner recommendations spot on.
It is a bit of a walk from the Newport waterfront and one may want to hit the beach in Middleton which is closer if you are a beach person. The place has a lot of charm which is what one wants in a B&B (well other than a bed and breakfast).

Just back from two nights at Armistead Cottage. Thank you Romana for a great stay! Met Charles briefly when we arrived but spoke to him on the phone several months ago when booking. He was also a pleasure to deal with. You are too funny Romana and as native New Yorkers we really appreciated your quick wit! LOL

The B&B is located several blocks from town, a doable walk, a little easier going down than coming back. Approximately a 15 minute walk. After touring three of the mansions and a portion of Cliff Walk in the awful heat yesterday,went back to shower up and Romana was kind enough to drop us off at a restaurant that we had decided on for dinner, so nice of her! We strolled around after dinner and were lucky to catch a cab back to the house, only $4.50 plus tip. Stayed in the Victorian room, ample room, window a/c, private bath and very comfy bed, slept like a log both nights! Enjoyed sitting on the porch at night with a glass of wine after two busy days. Husband and I said we will definitely book here again!

I stayed at Armistead from June 30 - July 2 with my Girlfriend. The home is beautiful, immaculately clean and very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and have all the amenities you could want. Romana and her husband are an absolute pleasure to deal with, having an extremely light and funny demeanor about them. The breakfast prepared by Romana was absolutely delicious. They are full of useful suggestions of what to see, and are not in any way obtrusive or imposing. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great weekend getaway!
