B&B Friday! (3/19/10)

Happy Friday, all!

I thought I'd switch things up a bit this week
and showcase three B&Bs from 
a specific New England town.

Today's town...

Newport, RI

Yankee Peddler Inn

"An inn of rare charm and easy elegance, the Yankee Peddler Inn, a 19th century Greek Revival Inn and one of the oldest "Historic Inns of Newport", is an experience not to be missed. Centrally located in downtown Newport, the Inn provides comfort, style, customer service, amenities and that personal attention you would expect from a fine New England inn.
Many of our guest rooms feature canopy beds, decorative fireplaces, original art, air-conditioning and cable TV. Spectacular views from our roof top garden and the warmth of our common room are ideal settings to partake in our complimentary Continental Breakfast and afternoon tea. Our warm staff is always available to assist and help plan your perfect vacation. We look forward to serving you."

Rates: $69-289


The Francis Malbone House

"The Francis Malbone House is the epitome of elegance, located in the heart of Newport's Historic Harborfront.
The estate was built in 1760 for Colonel Francis Malbone who made his fortune as a shipping merchant. The design of the house is attributed to Peter Harrison, "America's First Architect", who is also responsible for the Touro Synagogue and the Redwood Library.
....Treat yourself to a bit of colonial history by joining us, and we are confident that your first visit will be the first of many."

Rates: $165-525

La Farge Perry House

"Step back in time to a grand old Newport Inn with all the charm and elegance of a bygone era, and the warm welcome of home. From our five beautifully appointed Victorian-era guest rooms to choose from, to our inspiring gardens, fresh-cut flowers, afternoon tea, spa jacuzzi baths, designer bathrobes, romantic fireplaces and more, La Farge Perry House is a relaxing, intimate bed and breakfast experience in the heart of historic Newport.
The Inn is named for renowned painter and stained glass artist, John La Farge, and his wife Margaret Perry La Farge — granddaughter of of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and niece of Commodore Matthew Perry — who resided here from 1861 to 1864. The Inn's luxurious guest rooms are each uniquely designed to fit the personalities of these famous people."

Rates: $99-325


So if any of you are planning
a trip to Newport in the future,
perhaps you'll find one of these
to your liking!


  1. The Yankee Peddler Inn looks like my kind of place. I'd love to visit Newport one day. There's so much to see and do in New England that I doubt I'll ever get it all done!

  2. i just made our reservations for our october trip. the house we always rented in rockport is being sold so we couldn't rent it again. we rented one in glouster on long beach. it is surrounded on 3 sides by the ocean! i can't wait. i will post about the whole trip when we go!

  3. Newport is wonderful. The ocean, the mansions, it's all so fabulous. I usually go for a daytrip, but, if I were staying overnight I would consider any of the inns you listed. They all look lovely.

  4. Oh my, who wouldn't love to visit any of these? Thanks for sharing them with us! Happy Spring!

    xoxo Gert

  5. Thanks for this little peek into Newport.
    You are widening my horizons!

  6. We went to Newport years ago to a wedding and stayed at Chase Farm Bed & Breakfast. It was just wonderful. Outdoor breakfast. In fact, the owner's recipe for Raisin Bread Pudding is on the blog!


Thanks for your thoughts!
