My husband and I stayed here for three nights in the Doris Duke suite. Our suite was very spacious with two bathrooms, a separate seating area, and a private deck. The suite was clean and very comfortable. The location is ideal!!! We could walk to all of the restaurants and shops on the waterfront and Thames street as well as walk to the mansions on Bellevue Avenues. There was off street parking which is ideal in Newport. Michael and Heather were excellent hosts offering suggestions for activities and restaurants. We highly recommend staying here!

The location of this Bed and Breakfast is very convenient to the shops and waterfront restaurants. The rooms are very attractive, clean, and have all the modern conveniences. But the breakfasts are simply wonderful. Quiches, frittatas, stuffed pancakes or french toast all served with fresh fruit are absolutely delicious! Then between 3 and 8 fresh baked cookies and other snacks are available each day. My husband and I will not stay anywhere else.

Had a great weekend in Newport - partly due to where we stayed- Samuel Durfee House. Innkeepers were so friendly & knowledgeable about the area. Room was good size & very clean. Had everything we needed. Yummy full breakfasts & afternoon snacks. And location is PERFECT with onsite parking. 1 block from Thames. Thanks for a great visit!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Durfee House for a 3-day weekend and upon leaving said to each other that we would definitely return. The location was ideal. We parked in the private parking area and if you aren't aware, parking isn't easily found let alone free (providing you're a guest, of course), and were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go! The room was exceptionally comfortable and homey with all the amenities provided at a hotel: hair dryer, iron, bath robes, soaps and shampoo/conditioner (Gilghrist & Soames!). The breakfast cannot be beat! All delicious, all fresh: savory, sweet, fresh fruits, cereal, breads, tea, coffee, well you get the idea. The hosts won't let you leave for the day on an empty stomach. When Michael learned we were there to see the Volvo Ocean Race, he enlightened us to the local sailing culture and its history and provided us with great reading material. It made the trip so much more special. So to recap: welcoming hosts, superb locations, delicious breakfast, comfortable and homey rooms. Easy choice, right?
