Twenty days ago my last blog entry spoke about the break is well needed before the 10 day guest trip. Well it turned out to be a 17 day trip, and how things have changed. The trip started off smoothly, I had everything under control and my routine was finally in place. Auto-pilot you could say. The 4 guests that Harvey and Dee brought onboard were once again very friendly. Nobody could predict what would happen a few days down the ...
After all that baseball action it wasn't easy to get up and head for Woods Hole MA to make the ferry to Martha's Vineyard but we managed. How lucky we were to have a gorgeous day for this trip. We were also lucky enough to be on tour with what must be the ...
... The Moonstone is a very nice, larger oysters with full-bodied flavor and unusually deep cups. Grown in Point Judith Pond, RI. The brine is strong, but not quite so bold as a Wellfleet, What jumps out at you is that full body; the taste fills your mouth with minerals and brothyness.
What we also learned was that all clams are really Quahogs. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marshall Slocum Guest House Newport
Great experience,wonderful service
Joan and Julie were wonderful hosts and very attentive to our requests. The breakfasts were so delicious and we appreciated the afternoon niblets.
I would stay here again if I visit Newport RI.
The location of the house is perfect for walking/biking to the wharf , stores and beaches.
Thanks for a wonderful time.
Just like home!
The inn was very comfortable - - just like being at home! We stayed at the inn 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We hated to leave!
We stayed in Room #4, which has recently been renovated - - fireplace and all - - it was beautiful! The king-size bed in our room was one of the most comfortable beds we had ever slept in!
Off-street parking was definately a + and we were able to keep our bicycles in the garage. A nice back yard deck and front porch to relax on!
We were made to feel that the place was our own! Very nice, friendly people - - very attentive to all our needs and wants!
We will definately stay there again while visiting Newport!
"WOW!!!""" This had to be the BEST Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at!! From the hospitality to the food and the rooms..all top notch, the best ever!!!! I had always wanted to stay here because of the great reviews and let me tell you..they were all on the money!!! Julie and her mom, Joan, were the best hostess around. They truly love what they do and you feel that as soon as you step into their home. You will skip right through lunch due to the generous breakfast they serve with love. Afternoon "snacks" were unbelievable!! If you are going to Newport RI, take my word for it..stay here with Julie and Joan, you will not be sorry!! You don't want to go home!
Our only regret is that we had only one night to spend at this great B&B. Not only was it just what everyone here had said - immaculate, convenient and delicious - but we were told to stop back to freshen up before heading back home after a day of touring and found a roaring fire and snacks waiting for the 6 of us! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gem to anyone!
A great place to stay in Newport
We had a wonderful time during the four days we stayed at the Marshall Slocum Guest House. The accomodations were great and the food was really special. We really appreciated the friendliness of the innkeepers. They made us feel at home. Julie's recommendations of places to eat were flawless.
People talk all of the time about "southern hospitality," but I think it's time to talk about Newport hospitality!
Better than Home!
The Marshall Slocum House was the most charming B&B ever. It was everything one could possibly expect from a New England B & B.The location is very convenient to all the sights of Newport.
Julie and her mom could not have been more gracious hosts. The home was clean and fresh, with special touches, such as swan shaped towels in the bathrooms. Best of all was our welcome after a weary journey--Julie's home-baked chocolate chip cookies. The food was excellent--we didn't need lunch after the huge, delicious gourmet breakfasts. I'm waiting for Julie's cookbook to come out!
I can't wait to return.
I recently stayed at this B&B for 5 nights and couldn't have asked for better food and service. Upon arrival I received a warm welcome, a cool drink, and an invitation to sit out back with the innkeepers and enjoy the sun. I then proceeded to my room. (I chose the Sleigh Room.) I opened the door and was met with a fresh scent and the soothing sound of classical music. The beds are amazing. The linens are washed in lavendar water and smell wonderful. I don't think I've ever slept so well. The room was decorated with mid nineteenth-century furnishings and prints, and was painted a soft lilac color. It was cozy and comfortable. The room also had a spacious private bathroom and shower that was kept in pristine condition.
We recently stayed for four nights at this truly wonderful inn. We were met with a warm welcome upon our arrival on Thursday evening. We unpacked our bags and went back down stairs to inquire into a nice place to have dinner. To our suprise, the innkeeper had made us a wonderful snack platter served with a carafe of wine. We chatted a while and then went out to eat at this great seafood place called Scales and Shells. Upon our return later that evening fresh cookies and brandy were awaiting us. Each day a fantastic breakfast was prepared for us which included eggs benedict, waffles, muffins, fruit and any juice you craved. Hats off to Joan and Julie for their warm style,great food,fabulous referrals and amazing hospitality! My only regret is having to come home! Oh and.... do not miss the Canfield House for dinner and the Black Pearl for lunch!
I recently spent three great nights at the Marshall Slocum in and would recommend it with out any hestitation. The hosts are friendly, knowledgable and great chefs. All in all, they offer warm New England hospitality at a great price. The location is perfect for walking to the sites and the house is beautiful. It's a perfect romantic getaway!
