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.
It was just so nice to cruise on flat water with unlimited visibility! I read a whole book today...8 hours :-). We are at Brewers Marina they own many marinas in CT very nice place. I'll explore a bit in the morning a nice quiet night tonight.
Greg's Version We started the day by visiting Battleship Cove. There are four ships at the museum: USS Massachusetts (BB-59), USS Lionfish (WWII submarine), USS Joseph P Kennedy (destroyer), and an East German Missile Cruiser. I spent about a hour wandering around the main deck and lower decks of the USS Massachusetts. I was surprised to see how crowded life was on a battleship. I had much more room on the USS Chicago (CG-11) guided ...
... over one door there were two cherubs; one with a rail track gear stick and another with a hammer to represent the building of the railways which the Vanderbilt empire was founded on, in the background there was also a carved steam train; subtle mock Italian Renaissance with a twist! The Guided Age, when the house was built was a period in United States history during the final three decades of the nineteenth century. The term was coined by writers such as Mark Twain (I ...
... Bob Dylan to pass the time! I have decided that I will never get lost whilst in the U.S; I will only take the take the scenic route; which is exactly what I did on the next leg of my journey. Once the bus arrived I was ready and rearing to go. I had my maps app at the ready to check my location very so often and had texted my host family to let them know that I was only about a half an hour away. I could see that the bus was coming into Portsmouth so I got my things together and ...

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.
