A BETTER WAY TO STAY: … “A Room with a View”
Captain Simeon Potter house offers spacious rooms; original art and period furnishings that blend seamlessly into this lovingly restored 18th century sea captain’s home. This Newport RI bed and breakfast is your retreat, your sanctuary; linen always white, always crisp, inviting you to partake in the art of restorative sleep…think sleep. Heated towel bars, individual Heat/AC, phone & internet ports, TV and robes. The replication of the exact, profile and detail of the original trim and the soft, bayberry, palette; with the wide 290 year old honey colored, pine floors reflect luxury, quiet and calm.
The Southwest Chamber
Linen; always white, always crisp with only the whisper of pure cotton inviting you to take pleasure in the art of restorative sleep. Rest your head; float off in perfect comfort with your plump duck-down pillows and European linen... think sleep.
After a flawless sleep at our Newport RI lodging, awaken to the gentle wafting of Cafe Latte, espresso, or good old American coffee.
During winter months, you may want to slightly crack the window and take in the pure, healthy air coming directly in from the bay, while you snuggle under the lightest cloud of a deep duck-down Austrian duvet.
The Northwest Chamber:
The Northwest or Southwest chamber is decorated with period furnishings organized on balance and symmetry; as visual metaphors for reasoned order; they are eminently desirable symbols of authority and simplicity in the Georgian composition of your Newport Rhode Island bed and breakfast room. The bed, its headboard a single, thick slab of Honduran mahogany, may have arrived on a returning vessel on Newport's "Triangle Trade," which plied the waters between Africa, the Caribbean, and then back to Newport carrying molasses and the highly prized Honduran mahogany.
