We were awoken by the pitter patter of a soft rain, made a hearty breakfast, did the usual Last minute check of our equipment and provisions and motored out of the Marina under Fog with visibility of 1 mile. Out in the Sound the visibility improves and I rigged up a Fishing rod With a 12" pink Hogy in hopes of a tug of war with a denizen of the ...

Photos from Westport camino... With annette We decided to do a mini camino day and walk 10+ miles in Westport. Equipment wise I had no pack or poles and walked in sneakers. Of course Annette and I chatted the entire way. Some how we never run out of things to say. Our chatting made the miles pass quickly. It was funny because Annette is used to marathon training and working on speed. So our first mile was at 4 miles per hour. I had to slow her down as my training is to ...

On Friday, we arrived in our first port of call - Newport Rhode Island. It's a small city of 25000 but it hads alot of history - it's home to the first post office of the United States and the oldest continuously operated tavern in the US. We had to tender at this port (ie. take a small boat to shore) but since we were booked on ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Francis Malbone House Newport

    For a shot in dark (via internet) it was BEAUTIFUL!

    from

    After trying to get reservations in other locations on super short notice (less than five days) I happen to hit on the Francis Malbone via the Newport, RI website. I've become a little (a lot) jadded about picking hotels via the web because I've been burned a number of times, but honestly - this was an awesome surprise.

    A wonderful experience

    from

    The Francis Malbone is a lovely, comfortable place. We just returned from a Labor Day/birthday celebration weekend stay, and everything exceeded our expectations.

    Didn't like the Malbone House!!!!

    from

    WE stayed at the Malbone House and thought it was quaint but the owners were not very polite or very accomodating. The location is ok but it is very noisy and a bit dangerous with all the young kids at night out in front hanging around. The price was a bit outrageous as well. I dont think I would spend my money at this establishment again!!

    Home Away From Home

    from

    My wife and I first stayed here when we got married and we have been coming back ever since. The inn is well appointed and romantic. The staff is super friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is beyond description and sitting in the courtyard is so relaxing and peaceful. The inn is located in the heart of Newport within walking distance of many restaurants, the harbor, shopping and attractions. We have stayed in both the summer and winter and we shall return again. If you have an opportunity to stay here don't pass it up.

    The Best!

    from

    I had high expectations and they were surpassed! Make it a point to stay here if you're visiting Newport. Note: it's actually across the street from the harbor. My room was described as having a "harbor view", but all I could see was the tops of some masts. But the rooms are so beautiful and romantic you won't even miss the water. I will definitely stay here every time I visit Newport! (And I'm pretty picky).

    The perfect romantic getaway

    from

    We've stayed in Newport in all seasons, and our favorite place to stay is the Francis Malbone House. It is a warm and friendly atmosphere, with beautiful and comfortable Colonial furnishings, working fireplace in the guest rooms, great breakfasts and lovely afternoon teas plus a great downtown location. You can step out the door onto Thames Street and walk to a great restaurant, shopping or the waterfront. This is the perfect place for a romantic weekend away. The staff was especially helpful with restaurant suggestions and fun things to do. We're hooked!

    Nice weekend retreat!

    from

    My boyfriend and I went there a year ago for a long weekend. The first night we stayed in one of their newly opened cottages. It was spacious and very clean. Highly recommended for a family. The next two nights we stayed in the main house. Our room had a fireplace, jacuzzi and canopy bed. Absolutely wonderful! Food was delicious, 5 stars! Beautiful sitting room in main house. Overall, wonderful place to stay in Newport. Only drawback, didn't find the innkeepers to be the friendliest.

    Lovely Place

    from

    We very much enjoyed our stay here--the service was excellent.

    Wonderful breakfast in a charming setting. Very comfortable beds--we requested kingsize. Afternoon tea was fabulous--lots of sweets, cakes, cheese, etc. Great location for walking and tours. We'd stay here again.

    Never Again

    from

    Rude and arrogant best describe the manager here.For the money they charge, which is extremely pricey, you can do fathoms better at just about any other B&B in the neighborhood.

    Lovely Rooms, Great Service

    from

    This inn offers a wonderful location, great service, terrific breakfasts, and lovely rooms. We stayed in a very large room in the original part of the inn. The room was tastefully decorated and really comfortable. The bathroom was updated and thoughtfully designed. The road is noisy, so keep that in mind when selecting a room (we were kept up till 2 a.m. on a Saturday night by car alarms and festivities outside our first story room windows). Breakfast in the exterior courtyard is delightful and offers healthy choices as well as indulgences.
