We stayed one night at this lovely B&B in November, 2016. Hostess was very personable and ran a neat and comfortable inn. Her breakfast was delicious and ample. Strongly recommend this B&B - convenient and quiet neighborhood.

The best breakfast ever, an easy walk to the bike path and the bay. Kathleen is great, and her inn attracts interesting people, too--we met people from NJ (like us), Australia and Italy. Bristol is a lovely town, and Blithewold is amazing. Easy to run over to Newport, too. Only downside was that the walls are a little thin and...

My 2 friends, husband and I spent 3 nights at Kathleen's Bristol House. Beside for the comfort and cleanliness, the gourmet breakfasts were over the top. An extra treat was her chocolate chip cookies served warm upon our arrival and every afternoon. Most of all, Kathleen was friendly, gracious and accommodating. Being a foodie and a frequent guest of B&B's,...

Rooms are well-kept with a cozy feel and the owner does a phenomenal job of providing both excellent advice about the area and a delicious breakfast! A great base to explore either Providence or Newport, as well as lovely Bristol.

The one that makes everything right and the one that you want to take on vacation with you...because she has local eating/shopping/socializing tips (the right tips) and cooks amazing breakfast. She has Every little...

I want to give it more stars, but 5 is all trip advisor allows. Attention to detail is Kathleen's biggest quality. She has the #1 B&B in Bristol for a reason. She has thought of everything!!! This has become my zen place. Great hospitality, food, service, immaculate rooms ,bathrooms, yard, and living quarters. The location is great, being close to...

We are considering relocating to Rhode Island and the Bristol House B&B was a great location to get to know a little bit about the town and the state. Kathleen was a knowledgeable host and her breakfasts were delicious! Enjoyed the stay!

Our spacious room and private bath were impeccable. Beautiful weather allowed us to eat a delicious breakfast on the patio overlooking a pretty backyard. And breakfast was delicious: blueberry pancakes,...
