LOVELY HOUSE AND AMAZING FOOD

  • 5 of 5
The Austin House is in a perfect location, within walking distance to trendy restaurants and boutiques on Thames, all the hustle and bustle of the waterfront, Easton Beach, and the Cliff Walk. I had a wonderful stay here and Robert could not have been a better host. He offered great tips on things to see and do in the area, and most importantly (for me personally), he was an amazing chef. He whipped up delicious and creative brunches (one example: french toast with beet mole and i think goat cheese) to serve to us out on the patio and also provided us with homemade snacks (which he brought up to our room). Robert and his son were great hosts, the house was beautiful, our room was very thoughtfully decorated, and we had a wonderful stay.

WONDERFUL B&B EXPERIENCE IN NEWPORT!

Wonderful B&B experience in Newport!
  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about our wonderful recent experience at the Austin House Inn in Newport, RI! This charming and exceptionally well located B&B offers two nice sized and well appointed rooms on the first floor of a lovely home just a short walk from several great shopping and dining areas. We spent Memorial day weekend there with another couple and had the place to ourselves. Our host, Robert, couldn't have been more gracious and we enjoyed his delicious breakfasts - chef's table style - in his lovely kitchen. He went out of his way to accommodate our tastes and schedule each day. Our rooms were cozy and comfortable and we had access to a spacious living area for relaxing and enjoying our wine and Robert's impromptu appetizers. Robert provided some great suggestions about local activities and dining. The Austin House Inn made for a very pleasant stay in Newport.

PERFECT LOCATION AND A GREAT HOST

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect for anyone doing Newport. It is two blocks away from all the noise and excitement of Thames St. Far enough to be quiet, but close enough to be a 3 minute walk.

The Inn has two bedrooms and a living room. This makes it great for two couples. You each get your own bedroom with full bath, but also have a nice place to gather and socialize. Robert, the innkeeper, is an artist, which results in nicely decorated rooms with some beautiful stained glass windows.

Breakfasts each morning were tasty and healthy. He seems to be able to cook almost anything. Just be clear about what you would prefer.

I can't imagine a host being more willing to go out of his way to be helpful.
