After much research, I chose the Armistead B&B for a getaway for me and my wife. From our arrival to our departure, it was a perfect weekend. Romana was gracious, hospitable, and honest for our entire stay. The accommodations were ideal, and the breakfasts divine. At this inn, the feeling of being a guest has been brought back to a...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Armistead Cottage for a long weekend and had a lovely stay. Romana is a great hostess and wonderful cook. Breakfast was delicious every day! She also lent me a windbreaker because it was a bit chilly and I hadn't brought the appropriate clothing. We stayed in the Lilac Room which was very comfortable and...

Very enjoyable stay at the Armistead Cottage. The room was beautifully furnished, cozy, good size, and spotless. Both my husband and I had two nights of good sleep (very comfy bed). The B&B is in a good location, quiet street and walking distance to beach and downtown. Romana is a great host, very nice and helpful. Great place to stay...

What a wonderful place! We are so glad we found Armistead Cottage! Romana is the most inviting host with a wonderful sense of humor. Her home is beautifully decorated with items from around the world - she has wonderful stories about her travels. Breakfast was outstanding, and her location is perfect. Just a short walk to downtown and just enough...

Didn't arrive here by recommendation but had a good feeling before we even arrived thanks to charming email correspondence from romana. Romana (and Charles!) is a lovely host and just meeting her was very much part of 4 Aussies US travels! :) The rooms are really delightful. Lots of character in all of them and beautifully presented. Paces like farmstead...

Had a lovely New Years weekend at Armistead Cottage. We were comfortable instantly - Romana and Charles are very warm and know how to make you feel welcomed. House was decorated for the holidays - very festive and charming. Highly recommend for a romantic weekend.

An absolutely wonderful, romantic room.... Friendliness and unparalleled service from Romana and Charles.... A delightful breakfast and great recommendations for lunch and dinner.... And then, to top it all off, when Betty left a hat behind in the room, a phone call to us back home! So it should be no surprise that this was the first of many **return**...

After spending four days, three nights at the Armistead Cottage in Newport, RI, we now realize why everyone has had such great things to say about their stay with Romana and Charles.
