This inn came highly recommended, but turned out to be a huge disappointment--especially so since it was more than I wanted to pay, and I made the reservations four months in advance since I was attending a friend's wedding. I could have found something less expensive, but took it because of the recommendation. I arrived in a rush because I...

Comfortable charming rooms, a welcoming innkeeper, and a huge delicious breakfast every morning. All within a short drive of Newport, but away from the hustle and bustle. If you want peace and quiet, while enjoying all that Newport and the surrounding areas have to offer, this is the perfect place for you.

Stayed 2 nights for our anniversary. Arrived a little late but had a personalized welcome letter with keys waiting as we walked in. On our way into town for dinner, William and his wife were outside and provided several suggestions of places to try based on what we were in the mood for. Stayed in the Spenser-Dugan Quarters, was even...

We have stayed in B&B's in U.S. and Europe and find management here was not up to par. Reservations were a disaster resulting in people being bumped out. Breakfasts were basically fruit, pieces of muffins and scrambled eggs/bacon. See other reviews about breakfast delays--if you are on a schedule communicate ahead with the kitchen. Spiderwebs evident inside and outside under...

The agent booking reservations here is both incompetent and rude. Two important qualities that you should not have to deal with when booking rooms for a family get together. Try the Paquachuck Inn (Westport) they are so much nicer and the rates more reasonable.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Shamrock Farm Inn for the second time a couple weeks ago. I could not have enough good things to say about the inn, the owner, the location, and the breakfast! William is a gracious host and an excellent cook. Himself and Tracy are quick to respond to and questions; as I'm sure they'd...

This B and B has such potential, however, I couldn't get past the spider webs and spiders all over the room. Every corner, around the posts of the 4-post bed, beams, and rocking chair rockers. I don't think the room had been cleaned or dusted for awhile. All could have been remedied, if when I placed a call to the...

Paid for room with "crackling fireplace". It did not work when we got there and the owner did not return out call about how to operate it. The room had cobwebs in the corners and a black spider that was crawling around the tub, as we tried to get ready for bed.. We never met the owner during our entire...
