... Glen & Barbara a couple days before) and we were so happy they came to such a great show with an amazing crowd. After the show, we drove out to a pancake diner where we gorged on way too much food and laughed a lot.
The shows were remarkable and fun and the weather couldn't have been any better if we had tried. All in all, it was a lovely day and one of those moments that make you believe you could do this forever.
... 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.
... boaters are all so friendly, always willing to lend a hand or helpful advice.
Dinner at Moorings was very good 5 star meal, if we ever get back here request an outside seat much nicer. On our way back to the boat we decided on a drink at this really cute small bar right in the middle of a tourist walking street, met a few other boaters who filled our heads with possible harbor stops ....so much to see and do!
... s Center to take the walking tour. We found out that it was free! Nice! As you know, the Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a railroad. It was about helping slaves who had escaped their masters to gain their freedom. You see, New Bedford was a Quaker town. The Quakers believed in the equality of all mankind, and they believed that enslaving another human being was unconscionable. So, there were numerous "safe" houses, ...
... the only writer I recognised in the names of writers who coined the term!) which satirised what they believed to be an era of serious social problems disguised by a thin gold gilding. Let me tell you... The breakers mansion was certainly not holding back on the golden gilding! I am only sorry I couldn't get any photos! I'm afraid it was a no phone/ camera zone but it was unreal. The finery inside that mansion is like nothing I'd seen before! But it gave me a good few ...

Attwater Villa is definitely the best choice for everyone - the service is great, everything is about the guests and everyone feels welcome. As soon as You come You get everything You might need as a tourist, the owner Himself or His wonderful wife goes over the map with You, answers all of Your questions and recommends the best places for food, fun and so on. They are the nicest people I've ever met - always friendly and considerate about each person staying at their place. Which is more they provide the customers with beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, candies, chips (Your kids will love this place!!), etc 24 hours a day :] And the breakfast is great! They have everything - fresh sliced fruit, whole fruit, cottage cheese, cream cheese, fresh bagels, bread, muffins, pastries, milk and all sorts of cereals and they even make their own Granola (it's magnificent!!), also each morning You can enjoy fresh cranberry, grapefruit or orange juice, the best coffee in town and many more things, in short - there's something for everyone. As well they have the best housekeepers in all over the USA, the rooms are always perfect and spotless, fully equipped and comfortable, the interior design is very original and cosy. The inn is very quiet and You can always enjoy Yourself, peace and silence during Your hollidays, they have a wonderful sundeck where You can relax for hours. The location is simply perfect - it's within walking distance from the beach, the Mansions, downtown and ather attractions. I am absolutely amazed and definitely will keep coming back to this place each time I go to Newport. And of course I recommend it for everyone who is going to visit Newport, and it does not matter how old You are, how many kids You have :] I am sure if You come to that place You will leave it with intention to come back some day :]
My husband and I stayed at this lovely b&b for New Year's eve. We have been to Newport many times but never stayed at this establishment. We were greeted by Roland the innker/owner and he was very accomodating. We stayed in a master suite which was so beautiful and the cleanliness was amazing! Our room was immaculate. We walked everywhere from the Attwater Villa because they are truly centally located in downtown. We were very pleased with our stay and Roland couldn't have been nicer. We will be back to the Attwater Villa.
Good choice - good value for the money
We were really happy with Attwater Villa. Nice rooms and good sugestions from owners about restaurants, trips, etc.
Overall, good value. If we visit again Newport, our first choice.
We just returned from a 5-day stay at the Attwater Villa, and we were quite comfy, thank you very much. We stayed in a "Queen Std." room up on the top floor (there's no elevator, so be sure to determine your room's location if lugging yourself and luggage up 3 flights is a concern).
Three very particular women stayed Thursday, July 21, 2005. We found the hotel on Trip Advisor; all of us were enthused. We parked the car for free for two days and walked to the beach, Cliff Walk, tennis club and harbor area. Our suite was very clean and welcoming and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The only drawback might be the sink in a separate bedroom alcove. The tub/shower and toilet were in a spotless, well-supplied bathroom. The hallways were large with sunny alcoves supplied with cozy chairs and magazines. Included were an extensive Continental buffet breakfast in a spotless, inviting breakfast room, baskets of snacks in the lobby, beach towels, beach chairs, and a huge outdoor second-floor lounging deck. The owner was gregarious and extremely helpful with suggestions and maps. For Newport, it was a very good value.
The Attwater Villa is a great find in the heart of Newport. Tucked away in the downtown area just off Bellevue Avenue, easy walking distance to many shops and restaraunts. The Inn was built in the early 1900s and has just 12 rooms. Very charming vintage feel, yet the rooms have all been modernized. We stayed in a Master Suite which included a King bed, seperate living room with sofa bed, 2 TVs, refrigerator, coffee maker and lots of space. The rooms are very comfortable, well appointed, very clean and an exceptional value in comparison to others B&Bs in town. The hosts are Roland and Sadie who were very gracious and provided us with great information on attractions and local information. Complimently bowls of candies and treats were left on each floor of the Inn. Roland even baked brownies one evening for all the guests. A buffet continental breakfast is included in the rates which included breads, bagels, muffins, pastries, cereals (Roland's home made granola is the best!), fruit, juices, coffee and teas.
Just what we were looking for!
We recently returned from a long weekend in Newport. We wanted to avoid a traditional B&B (not comfortable staying in someone else's home) and didn't want a pricey large hotel. Attwater Villa was perfect! It's a very quaint historical inn within walking distance to everything...we didn't touch the car once we got there.
The rooms are clean and a good size (and we stayed in one of the smaller rooms) and the price is certainly better than other hotels. The innkeeper is very friendly and helpful - when we checked in he went over a map of Newport with us and gave us great advice on where to eat and what attractions to see.
Newport is a great place to visit and we'll definitely stay at Attwater Villa again!
Great Place to Stay
Just returned from a wonderful trip to Newport. First time there and we loved it. We will definitely return. Thanks to Sadie and Roland, our trip turned out even better. The Attwater Villa was perfect. The room was spotless, the variety at breakfast great, the location just right (near everything), the "sweet treats" hit the spot - thank you, and Sadie's recommendations of what to see and where to eat made our trip just right. Kudos to Roland and Sadie!!!!
Attwater Villa- Family Loved it!
Our family of 3 stayed at the Attwater Villa and were very pleased with the cleanliness, excellent location - 1 block off of Bellevue, breakfast variety and evening "sweets surprises". The innkeeper, Roland was extremeley helpful and was responsive to all requests we had, down to providing in-room videos for our 5 year old and beach chairs, towels for our trip to 2nd beach. We were very pleased with the under-advertised gem of Newport!
This was our first time to Newport. If you want something different from the typical victorian inn, then go here. This is a modern looking B&B. We loved the website of this inn, very user friendly. We rented the 2 bedroom cottage, and it was very very nice. It's perfect for either a family or a group of friends. There are 2 separate bedrooms with queen beds as well as a living area with a queen size sofabed. The nice part is the living area, has a door, so if anyone uses that room as their sleeping area, then they can shut the door for privacy. There's a tv with DVD/ VCR, and a nice kitchen to store water or food. The sofabed was absolutely comfortable, and my friends also enjoyed the bedrooms. They serve a nice continental breakfast, with lots and lots of variety. The innkeeper, Roland was very helpful, and gave us great recommendations for places to see and eat. We toured the other B&B rooms, and they are amazingly cool looking, and the rooms were quiet large. We'll definitely come back here!
