My fiancé and I just left the Sarah Kendall House and we do not have enough good things to say about our stay. First off, due to unforseen circumstances we were not able to make it down for our originally scheduled day. I called about a week before hand and spoke to a gentleman who was kind enough to accommodate...

I stayed here during a weekend between 2 heavy work weeks in Connecticut. What a treat it was. Really friendly, hospitable and helpful, with a lovely cosy room at the top of the house and all that Newport has to offer within walking distance. Even classical music on the verandah to come back to at the end of the day....

I took my wife here for an overnight stay for her birthday. This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we were not disappointed. Bryan immediately made us feel like home and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. The room we got had an ocean view and was clean and well furnished. The only thing that wasn't provided was...

Wonderful B&B. From everything to the location to the rooms - it is perfect. The owners are very pleasant and the breakfast spread was absolutely amazing. They really do go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. Minutes away from Thames Street. We will definitely be returning!

From the moment we arrived at the Sarah Kendall House, we felt welcomed. The owners greeted us on a cold, windy, snowy night and we felt immediately comfortable. Not only were the owners very welcoming; but they took the time to tell us about the area, the history of the home and the extremely interesting items (all authentic) within the...

We found the Sarah Kendall House for a last minute get-away and our experience there was beyond our expectations. Fran and Bryan were exceptional hosts who were most welcoming and responsive to our every request. The accommodations were excellent ( the bed and pillows were very comfortable) and the fireplace room was perfect for just relaxing in the evening. The...

My wife and I stayed at the Sarah Kendall House over New Year's 2016-2017. Bryan, Fran, and Mary (the staff) were very friendly, the price was fair, and the room was comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace in our room, the third-floor "tower" view of Newport of which we were able to partake, and the breakfast. This B&B is gorgeously...

This was our fourth New Year in Newport. Our last two - 2 night stays at the Sarah Kendall House. My husband and I are already discussing our next visit. Very conveniently located and within walking distance of the harbor. Lovely rooms, quiet and friendly and clean. Best of all, the morning table with whatever you fancy. Fresh juices, fresh...

This was my second time here and my husbands first time. It looked magical inside. The innkeepers Bryan and Fran are exceptional, as is Mary. They make you feel like family and are a wealth of information on dining out or site seeing if you need recommendations. Would definitely recommend and will come back again.
