Booked a last minute weekend trip here. We picked it because of the excellent tripadvisor reviews and the Samuel Durfee House exceeded their wonderful reviews. Heather and Michael are extremely nice people. They accommodated our late check in, helped us with where to go, cooked a delicious breakfast and even helped us with the oil in our car. The room was cute and very clean. All the amenities. The location is perfect. It is one block away from the main drag of shops and restaurants and right around the corner from The Elms. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Newport.

If you want something special in Newport, this is the best choice in the BB panorama of Newport.
Great room!
Everything was perfect in the room and it was very clean!
Parking available, no worries!
The location is walking distance from everything in Newport.

The owners were great.

The breakfast was different everyday but always delicious.

We just got back from a two night stay at this B&B. We were in the Ida Lewis room, which is in the back of the house. The room has an elegant feel to it with a very comfortable high four poster bed and a nonworking fireplace. We never had a chance to use the little porch, but it looked nice and was private. The room had everything you could imagine needing and throughout the house there were different touches that showed the innkeepers wanted to make sure their guests were comfortable. Heather took us around the inn upon arrival and made sure we knew where everything was. They even have chilled glasses and water or coffee/tea to go with their afternoon treats. The location cannot be beat. It is an easy walk to the best parts of town. We brought our bikes down and Heather offered to let us keep them in the carriage house. If you stay here, make sure you tell Heather what some of your plans are. She will not only give you honest suggestions, but on two occasions she was able to offer discount tickets to the attractions available to her guests through the Newport B&B association. We were even able to borrow a street parking pass to go to a restaurant in a part of town that only had resident parking after 6:00pm when we told her we had reservations. Another tip for future guests is to tell them in your booking if you are either allergic or just don't like a particular type of food (e.g. nuts). Everyone eats the same fantastic gourmet breakfast, and they will tailor their menu to exclude foods that the current guests do not like. Liked the stay so much, we can't wait to go back in another season.

We had a good but short stay in a convenient location in Newport. Took advantage of their discounts to Doris Duke House and Newport Vineyards. A comfortable in the Doris Duke room and a good breakfast. Michael and Heather helped make our short stay enjoyable.

This was our first time in Newport, and we're so glad we chose to stay here -- hosts were great, location can't be beat...

Great breakfasts each AM on nice garden patio. Rooms were cleaned promptly in the AM: we also had a private entrance and patio with the Harrison Suite, and overall would highly recommend and look forward to returning!
