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 ...

... purpose, but to look up and enjoy the surroundings. All about the journey, not the speed. We averaged about 3.25 miles an hour with no breaks... Still a bit fast. But the real discovery was after the walk... Annette introduced me to CW-X compression tights! Wow, during the hours I wore them after the walk I could feel the benefit. I will be reading about these on the plane home on Tuesday! Thanks Annette for the walk, talk and intro to the tights that may save my hips and ...
This morning we arrived just off Newport, Rhode Island. It is the largest city on Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay. We would tender in to the island from the bay that surrounds Aquidneck Island. The respite from the cold that we enjoyed in Boston was gone. The cold weather that we had experienced in Canada was back along with dark foreboding clouds that hung over the sky like a blanket not allowing full bright warming sunlight to fall to the ground. Although no ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Armistead Cottage Newport
Armistead Cottage in Newport, Rhode Island is a must see and stay at bed and breakfast. It is in close proximity to the Mansions, Cliff Walk and downtown waterfront.
Our first stay at the Armistead Cottage in Newport Rhode Island was three years ago. My wife's daughter was getting married at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport and I was placed in charge of finding a place to stay after the reception. I found the Armistead Cottage on a web page, looked over everything written about the cottage and then called the owners, Romana & Charles. Not being from that area I was a bit concerned about the travel time to and from the reception area for change of cloths ( naps) and any other places that I might need to go ( ice cream.) After speaking with Romana I felt very confident that this was the place to stay and my intuition proved to be correct.
Finally, a place to return to...again and again and again.
This is absolutely an establishment that personifies the words, "Touch of Class." It is spotless, inviting and cozy all in one. Romana is as charming, engaging, witty and accomidating an individual as one can hope to find. Bravo for this B&B. As that famous composer once stated, "I'll be Bach!"
Cozy & Warm
I really loved this place. It was immaculate & clean, Romana (the owner) was so hospitable and nice and our room was extremely comfortable and so was the king size bed. The gas fireplace added a special touch as did the gourmet style breakfasts we were extremely impressed with every morning. Romana made you feel like you were home with her wonderfull personality. I would highly recommend this B&B while staying in Newport. Although our stay was the winter, I noticed the house is pretty close to the water and would be really nice to stay in the summer as well.
This place was so wonderful! We were so warm and cozy here - from the in-room fireplace, to the friendly house cats and yummy cookies at night, everything was just right. Romana cracked us up! She helped us with sightseeing, and showed us the "Carrot Room," but still gave us our privacy. We loved the decor in the room and felt very comfortable staying there. Newport is a great place to visit, and staying at the Armistead Cottage was the highlight. We will definitely return!!
First class B&B
We stayed at Armistead Cottage for 5 days this summer. It is the epitome of everything that a B&B ought to be. The owners are warm, engaging and funny. The breakfasts are great. Our room was beautiful and spotlessly clean.
It is 10 minutes walk from the centre of Newport, and even closer to First Beach and the Cliff Walk (though our American fellow guests thought we were eccentric for walking anywhere!).
The Carrot Museum is a joy to behold and it was lovely to spend time sitting out on the porch.
What takes this B&B from the very good to the 5 star category is the fact that Romana and Charles are such charming hosts.
Fantastic place to stay!
My wife and I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Romana, Charles and Halina at their Bed and Breakfast and we can't wait to go back! From the delicious breakfasts to our incredibly comfortable room to the genuine warmth of our hosts, we couldn't think of a better place to stay while in Newport. Armistead Cottage is within easy walking distance to all the sights, while being away from the hustle of the center of town. This truly was a special treat! Thanks again!
A long weekend to remember
A short walk from downtown and near the Cliff Walk, Armistead is clean, the rooms are warm and cosy, and Romana and Charles are extremely friendly, helpful, and outgoing. Delicious and carefully-prepared breakfasts are served at a prompt time each morning downstairs with other guests, creating an intimate environment. Once you are in your room however you have complete privacy. The perfect place if you like a residential feeling B&B. And it goes without saying that Romana's carrot museum is fabulous. Highly recommended.
A Bed and Breakfast like no other
The Armistead is a Bed and Breakfast like no other. It's located on a quiet street in Newport. The house is filled with antiques, nick nacks, and beautiful stained glass made by the B&B owner. It is also the only B&B that has it's own carrot museum that must been seen to be believed. The rooms are cozy and the breakfasts are delectable and creative. When you stay at the Armistead not only do you feel like you are staying at a B&B, but you also feel like you are staying with friends.
The most fun B+B
We loved the Armistead Cottage and our hosts! The room was cozy. The bed was comfy. The breakfasts were delicious and the Carrot Museum was fabulous!
