Today I was taken to Yawgoo Valley by my cousin Bronwyn her husband Rick and their two kids Cein and Eamon. Oh what fun! We went 'tubing' which involves getting into a blow up donut shaped device and being pushed down a hill at incredible (and sometimes frightening) speeds. At the bottom of the hill there was a tow rope that you could attach your tube to be pulled up, which was ...
... 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. Nothing beats steak and ...
... days. WHAT?! Instant panic mode. 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!!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilltop Inn Newport
Great Mother's day getaway
My mom and I stayed here for our annual Mother's Day trip. I have stayed in many nice places, but Hilltop ranks high not on just the quality of the Inn, but the service as well. The breakfasts were delicious and something different everyday. The teas were the perfect afternoon pick-me-up and changed daily. The staff was very helpful in prioritzing what we should see...and their Restaurant picks were Spot ON! I would not think about staying anywhere else in Newport. LOVED IT
We stayed at the Hilltop for 2 nights. Everything about our stay was excellent - especially the room and the attention given to us by the staff . The room was large, beautifully decorated with a superb bathroom. Its the little touches that make this B&B stand out. The complimentary bottles of water each day, newspaper, turn down service and the exceptionally friendly staff.
I would recomend this hotel to anyone staying in Newport and will hopefully be back myself one day.
Loved the inn and the staff are awesome!
Two weeks ago we stayed for a weekend at the Hilltop Inn. What a beautiful place! We have stayed many times at their other bed and breakfast The Francis Malbone House and they are both excellent! The staff is outstanding. We can't wait to go back real soon!
What a beautiful find. I've stayed all over the world and this place is the real deal. Beautifully decorated, the staff is attentive but they leave you alone to enjoy your privacy. Went there for a quiet retreat for a friend's birthday after researching similar properties in Newport this one is better than some inns that are twice the price. Can't wait to return.
The Best Inn Ever
I have stayed all over the world in many first class accommodations. I found the Hilltop Inn to be the best combination of elegance, quite composure, decor, delicious food, and a wonderfully caring staff. The home has been beautifully restored down to every detail. Taking a long hot bath and watching TV was nice. The huge and delicious breakfast was well planned and presented along with the afternoon tea. No one will go hungry! The staff went out of their way to advise us about dinner locations and the best shopping for furniture for our son's apartment.
We will definitely stay at the Hilltop Inn next Easter.
Our son was getting married in Newport and we were looking for a wonderful place to stay with our closest friends. We discovered the Hilltop and its sister Inn, the Francis Malbone, when we visited Newport during the wedding planning stage. The Hilltop was just across the street from the chapel and reception site. We knew the minute we walked in the door that the Hilltop was the place for us. Beautifully decorated and very homey with every comfort known to man or woman provided by a top notch staff who treated us and our guests like family. We stay in the Bellevue Suite with a comfortable sitting room, wonderful bedroom and enormous bathroom. All of the rooms and baths are exceptional.
First Class Comfort
The Hilltop Inn is an extravagance we are so thankful we allowed ourselves. The staff was friendly and "real", the home cooked food was incredible, the ambience not to be beat and the central location, perfect. The rooms are spacious, some with balconies to be enjoyed in the nice weather, the beds comfortable and amenities for all to enjoy. Highly recommend.
After searching the internet for a place to stay, I came across Hilltop Inn via Google. The pictures on the website do not do the inn justice. The main entrance is a combination of elegant arts and crafts style mouldings and deep mahogany woodwork. Janet ,the innkeeper, greeted us and graciously checked us in. My husband, who prefers hotels over inns, went straight for the sideboard of afternoon treats! Mint chocolate brownies, strawberry cheesecake, brie in puffed pastry, lemon drop cookies..... Who needs dinner!!
The Hilltop Inn is a gem! Step inside and you are instantly surrounded by the beauty and comfort of a genteel home. Stay a while, and you will leave refreshed. I certainly did!
My partner and I spent three wonderful nights in mid-July at the Malbone House's new sister property, the Hilltop Inn. Just opened in April, it doesn't yet have it's own Trip Advisor listing, so we're reviewing it here. All the glowing praise reviewers have given the Malbone House applies equally to the Hilltop Inn.
