"My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for a beautiful fall weekend in Newport. We were blown away by Joanna's hospitality...over and over she went above and beyond for us (and she is a great cook!). The house is a gem, with three hundred years of history under its eaves. The location can't be beat--it's right near the water, a stone's throw from the downtown area and all the shops and restaurants. It's also right across from the shipyard where you can gape at the making of billionaire's yachts.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return to Newport."
