A Magical Stay

“Incredible view, lovely staff, and a clean and cozy room. We were celebrating a birthday and they left a handwritten note! It made the whole trip feel extra special. Located right next to beach access, and just a couple of minutes from all kinds of food and shops.”

Excellent Location!

“The property sits just steps away from the beach access, so it was easy to just pick up and go. Location was great because while you're close to the beach, you're also close to the main part of town and the Newport Historic Bayfront. We had a pet-friendly room, and it was clean and fresh. Great staff!”

Loved It

“The room was comfortable, with an awesome view of the seaside & lighthouse. We loved having a balcony to enjoy the sights and sounds. A beautiful location for watching the sunset, and there was a nice walking path to the beach.”
