My wife and I spent two nights there and it was magical! Bill and Eleanora couldn't have been nicer! They made us feel right at home as if we were one of the family!! Very comfortable, peaceful, class...y and simply beautiful. Their love and care for the Inn is quite evident in all the surroundings and hard work they've put into this masterpiece of a bed and breakfast. Highly recommended. You will NOT be disappointed!!

This was the best Birthday pres...ent ever and I told him we have to come back next year to celebrate again, if I can wait that long.... See More

Where to begin--this place was just amazing...a storybook location. Originally I selected this place for my wedding in order to take some "getting ready" photos with our photographer, and then spend ...the night with my husband for our first night as a married couple. We stayed in the Waterfire Suite aka Grand Suite, and were just breathless with how beautiful the room was. Eleanora helped the girls and myself get ready for the wedding by providing some sandwiches for the girls (something she does not normally do) to ensure we ate before the wedding as we were behind on time, and helped us bring in all of our wedding supplies. After returning at night with my new husband, we were welcomed with a beautiful fire already lit in our room, a bottle of champagne, chocolate, and a cheese platter to enjoy! The hot tub was incredible and so romantic, and our private porch made for great wedding night chatter. Every night that we returned our fire was relit (like magic), and the room was pristine. I swear the housekeeper must have always been hiding around the corner, because every time we would leave for a moment the room would be clean! For dinner we realized that we were a bit in a bind because the limo had dropped us off at the inn meaning we had no car to drive to a restaurant. Eleanora made us reservations at a close by restaurant and even drove us there herself! Her husband Bill was a pleasure to talk to about the history of the inn, and both were about the nicest people you will ever meet. I cannot rave enough about their delicious home cooked breakfasts, coffee, hospitality, and small details. We are already planning a trip back for our 5 year anniversary! We think we might stay in the Newport Suite next time! See More
