... my view of the audience I realized "tits.. I'm related to every single person sitting in the bleachers". We're all well familiarized with the blood relatives bias. For one, family members think you're wildly more attractive than the rest of the populous because you share a genetic foundation. Admitting to your daughter/son/niece/nephew's genetic misfortune is way too self-deprecating because the apple doesn't fall far from the ugly tree. Family ...
... eating without her again. We then ventured to the Adirondack II Sail boat, an 80 foot long schooner built in 1999. We took a 1.5 hour sail around Narragansett Bay and saw some wonderful sights and views. We saw Jackie Kennedy's summer home from the water and various other houses; including a house built on its own island which was about the size of the island. Have some great pics of us on the boat and our crew was Coral ...
We had a nice trip down once we got on the plane. The plane was 45 minutes late due to some storms. We wondered around the airport trying to do something as we were very early. Mom's neck message was interrupted becuase Ala said it may be time to board. We had an uneventful flight with me watching The Other Woman with Carmen Diaz and some others. Laughing half the way. Upon arrival, we did not get the sleek ...
So let's start from the beginning. I am in my junior year of high school and my dad got a new job. Now this job would mean that we had to move, and so I ended my sophomore year in Massachusetts and now I'm starting my junior year in Alaska. The fun being the big move. The house is packed and on its way and now for the big decision. Flying or Driving? And the decision was…..driving. Now this is a start to a great ...
After our first stop at the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory tour we headed out to Newport, Rhode Island to go to some mansion tours. We had been there years before and went to Marble House. This time we visited The Breakers and Rosecliff. The Breakers was very nice and Rosecliff ...

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!
Beyond my greatest expectations!!!
"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!
I cannot thank them enough for such a wonderful stay and all that they did to make it an awesome weekend. I will never stay anywhere else when I visit Newport RI! Take it from me, once you go there, you will never want to stay anywhere else! God bless you and your wonderful staff, who go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Ena V.
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.
And to think I was going to stay at the Marriott...
People talk all of the time about "southern hospitality," but I think it's time to talk about Newport hospitality!
Joan and her daughter Julie have a wonderful, warm establishment that is minutes from all that Newport is (boats, bars, souvenirs, seafood...). Kay Street is quiet and the offstreet parking at Marshall Slocum Inn is invaluable. But enough about the parking!
Here are the Top Three Reasons to stay at Marshall Slocum Inn on Kay Street, direct from the home office in Wake Forest, NC.
3. The rooms - cozy, well-maintained, with nice-sized bathrooms. I felt like I was in my own home, rather than a typically overly feng-shui'ed chain hotel room. And the ice machine was a real refrigerator.
2. The breakfast - honestly, the first morning I thought "muffin and fruit cup: nice enough to tide me over." Then the real breakfast came out-Belgian Waffles with strawberries! These are awesome breakfasts made with skill and caring and love.
1. The proprietors - I wish Joan was my mother, and Julie my sister. They are incredible! Again, I felt like I was living at home, having great conversations (esp. about the Pats!), enjoying a glass of wine and watching Oprah and GH.
I've never caught the name of any clerk at any Marriott at which I've stayed basically b/c I never cared. But by staying at Marshall Slocum, I believe I've added to my extended family and look forward to returning very soon (but maybe still after peak season).

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.
It doesn't get any better than this.
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.
Each afternoon guests are invited to come downstairs and enjoy various hors d'oeurves and wines; and each evening, fresh baked treats are served in the parlor. While the rooms are beautiful and inviting (particularly Mrs. Slocum's room and The Rose Room), the breakfasts I enjoyed each day were the highlight of my stay.
Each breakfast begins with a fresh fruit offering, such as fruit salad, fruit compote, or grilled grapefruit. (My favorite one was mandarin oranges and pineapple topped with fresh cream and toasted coconut.) This is accompanied by a slice of freshly baked cake or a muffin. The selection of juices is extensive. Apple, orange, tomato, cranberry, etc. However, the entrees are most remarkable. I enjoyed waffles with fresh strawberries, a meditteranean omelet made with fresh spinach, ham and feta cheese, eggs seasoned with oregano, crushed bacon and homefries atop an english muffin, french toast (their signature dish), and my absolute favorite, eggs benedict. It was wonderful.
If you are looking for comfort, hospitality, an excellent location, reasonable prices, and great food, this inn is perfect for you. Enjoy your stay!
Hospitality is the key to this gem!
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!
