... better option for me than walking! (Haha, lazy) you can even go down in lots of 2,3,4,5 and even 6 if you hold on tight enough. I loved the look of pure terror on Eamon's (who's 3) face at the beginning of each ride that lasted for a few seconds before he realised it was fun. According to him he went "60 hours fast!". Cein (who's 7) and who is also much braver than me ...
... itself is a very small state. On the way home he told me that it's the size of New York City! It's only 37 miles across and 48 miles long and is the smallest state in the USA. So I spent most of my day in Connecticut, on a bus and walking around in -11 in hope of food and was delighted when arriving at Peter & Jan's (great uncle & aunt) I was cooked steak and eggs ozzie style.

The more this is becoming real though, the more I'm accepting that I have to let go of my old ways and be able to adjust and be flexible with my new surrounds and life. After all, living in a completely different country isn't going to be anything like I know. At the same time, I'm so excited. I know these next few months are going to be life changing and I'm sure the memories will be some of the best I've had yet. LET'S GET READY TO TRAVEL!!!

Knowing Chris and Lisa, we expected a beautiful home that was well cared for and maintained. This did not disappoint but only reinforced our opinion of the family home.

Historical Traveler Reviews Architects Inn - George Champlin Mason House Newport
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Architect's Inn. The house itself is really beautiful and feels so authentic. The inn completely lived up to its reviews. The room was very clean and provided a very romantic environment. The breakfast was very good as well. When we return to Newport, we will definitely choose the Architect's Inn
Impeccable B&B in a great location
Impeccable B&B in a great location in Newport. Short walking distance to nearly everthing, including the popular wharf area with its stores and great restaurants as well as the ocean cliff walk and so many historic sights. Location is perfect, close to everything, but on a quiet street. Car stayed parked most of the time, which made our visit so easy . Newport is a great place to visit, we stayed two nights. B&B hosts were helpful and charming and the house itself was perfect for relaxing. A+ experience all around and most affordable.
Exceeds all reviews and expectations
It is seldom that a place exceeds the reviews and expectations - but Sheila and Harlan ensure that every need is met - without you even having to ask! We highly recommend the Architects Inn. It is in a beautifully quiet area that is still within walking distance to the hub of Newport. We will certainly be returning.
Even though we thoroughly researched bed and breakfasts in Newport you never know until you get there how they will really be. This is one where the actual experience (my wife and I spent 4 evenings) was better that expected. Our suite was unbelievably spacious (Perry suite); it was like having half of a duplex with separate sitting area, bedroom and beautiful and modernized bathroom (the pictures on the website do not do it justice). Room was very clean as were common areas. While still retaining its charm all the plumbing and such is modern . There is even free internet acess.
Just returned from spending two nights at the Architect's Inn in Newport and we couldn't have had a better time. Sheila and Harlan are wonderful hosts, very relaxed, full of useful information if you have questions and very accommodating. The location is splendid for a start. It's a short walk to First Beach in one direction and to the fast scene on the waterfront in another. It's located on a quiet street about a ten minute walk from Thames. Our room was fantastic. It included a very large bedroom, a separate sitting room (with room for a rollaway cot if needed) and a large, modern bathroom with shower stall and tub. Both rooms had window a/c, but the bedroom has nice ventillation. Both rooms have small tvs with cable hook-up, one with a VCR and the other with a DVD player. The room has a stock of DVDs and the parlor downstairs has a lot of tapes and books to borrow. Breakfast is family style in the dining room so you get to meet the other guests and the food is delicious. We had French toast one morning and Eggs Benedict the next. Some snacks and sweets are put out in the afternoon. Our room had a refridgerator too. The Inn is nicely furnished in period style. There's a wonderful porch where we had drinks one night. It's the best. We'll be certain to stay there again.
Sheila and Harlan are wonderful!
Just came back from a weekend at the Architect's Inn. I must say it was a most pleasant experience. The accomodations were superb. We stayed in the Redwood Room which was beautifully decorated, romatic, and extremely comfortable. Complete with fireplace and claw foot bath tub. Sheila and Harlan the Innkeepers were extremely gracious. The homemade breakfast of french toast one morning and eggs benedict the next was superbly served on the finest of china and tasted yummy! During the evenings delicious homemade treats were set out for their guests. Great location, quiet..but close to everything. Would absolutely stay there again on our next visit to Neport.
My boyfriend (now fiance) stayed at the Architect's inn the weekend before Valentine's Day. We were looking for a romantic b&b under the $150 range. We found it! Everything about the Architect's Inn was amazing, with so much attention to detail throughout the house! The working fireplace was soooo great and charming, as were the inn keepers, Sheila and Harlan. They were very friendly and wonderful hosts. We spend a fantastic day walking around town, and then went for a romantic dinner at 22 Bowen's Wharf. In fact, the night and weekend were so romantic, my boyfriend proposed to me over dessert!
Our stay at the Architect's Inn was a pleasant experience. Our hosts made us feel comfortable, and were always around to see if we needed anything, but were never intrusive. They made us feel at home in their home. Our room was impeccably neat, clean and quite comfortable. Breakfast was served in the diningroom and we shared the table with two other couples. The food was homemade and delicious. In addition to breakfast the diningroom was always open for snacks and drinks. The homemade chocolate chip cookies were a hit with my husband, but no matter how many he ate, the plate was always full. The Inn is centrally located and within walking distance to all. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay, where all your needs will be attended to, then the Architect's Inn is for you.
The Architect's Inn is fabulous! We stayed at the Inn for our third wedding anniversary. It was our first time in Newport, but that wasn't a problem--Sheila made us feel comfortable right away. She greeted us on arrival, showed us around the lovely bed and breakfast, made sure we were aware of all of the amenities, and then, gave us a short orientation about things to do in the area. She was so helpful, we had no problem deciding what to see! Our room was beautiful and comfortable and the breakfasts we ate were fabulous--the french toast was amazing! Sheila and Harlan were both extremely attentive during breakfast; they made us feel comfortable and welcome. The Inn is conveniently located in the heart of Newport--within walking distance of the wharf area, which houses many great resturaunts and shops, and also within walking distance of the beautiful cliff walk. The Inn also has a really great last minute special that we took advantage of; our stay was well worth it at full price, but saving money was an added bonus. We had a really wonderful time and definatly intend to revisit the Architect's Inn during our next stay in Newport!
