It was wonderful coming back to Berkley...the sponsor contact here, Roger, is a good friend to our circus and after taking such good care of us last year when we advanced here, he didn't disappoint this year. Roger met each vehicle last night when we pulled in with a print out of various walkable shops and restaurants in the area and welcomed us each back. He arranged for the police to drive through the lot a couple of times ...
... Statford Ct a slight change, had a bit of an engine issue with one of the engines we'll have that looked at tomorrow.

... The mansions are huge and lots of them along the way. We witnessed some of the aftermath of hurricane sandy some of the sea wall was under construction so what to do turn back or climb along, we decided to risk it and keep going it was a Sunday so no construction crews around to stop us :-) we cut back up to the Main Street and made our way back to the " Breakers Mansion" it is open to the public and they had an audio tour very ...
... of what became New England. They used whale oil for lighting and heating. They used other parts of the whales, such as the skins, and they used even the bones for carving art, called scrimshaw. The museum there was gorgeous, from the building, down to the displays. In one part, they had a whole skeleton of a huge whale hanging from the ceiling. In another part of the museum, they had put together an entire whaling ship! I stood there, ...
... for it; a bit like urban outfitters or Prada. Despite all the grandeur of the building Vanderbilt managed to have a little bit of fun with the building of his home. In the billboards room there was a hidden mosaic of a tortoise and during some parties at the Vanderbilt's a serving tray would be used so that guests and children could slide down the great hall stairs. The house was built in Italian Renaissance style and so as you would expect there were marble cherubs ...

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!
