Hawthorne House of Newport is located in the city's south end (Fifth Ward). The private three-room suite offers the convenience and comfort of home. Your privacy is assured as we accept only one booking at a time - in other words, you will be our only guests. The suite includes a private deck with gas grill, both high speed or wi-fi Internet access, a queen-bedroom and a separate living/dining room with queen sofa bed. Due to the privacy of this suite, we are happy to welcome children. They will be delighted to find a nearby playground and family beach - as well as a large yard. This home is accessible for most wheelchairs - please ask us for specifics. Well-behaved pets allowed - please ask for our 'Pet Policy'.

Fully-equipped and nicely decorated, your suite includes a private entrance and off- street parking. Oh, did we mention your helpful hosts? Feel free to ask us for shopping, dining, or sightseeing suggestions. As native Newporters, we are well acquainted with our famous hometown and its surrounding areas.

We are located in a quiet residential area ('Fifth Ward') within walking distance to downtown (1.2 miles) , a local beach (0.7 miles), Salve Regina campus (0.5 miles), and Breakers Mansion on the Cliff Walk (0.9 miles). We are 1.3 miles from Fort Adams State Park.

Wheelchair / Other Mobility Needs: For most guests with mobility needs (walkers, canes, standard-sized manual wheelchairs, etc.) or for those who can easily stand and pivot to transfer, this suite should prove accommodating. May not be suitable for power wheelchair users - please call us for specifics. We are, of course, happy to move (or remove) furnishings or scatter rugs as per your requirements. Floor plan (with measurements) available.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. We were in Newport for a wedding and this was a perfect place for us to stay with our 2 children and our dog. Mike and Terri were so nice and were great at giving advice on where to eat and things to do and see in the area. It was a short walk to the beach and into the town. The place is very clean and has everything you need. The kitchen was stocked with coffee, juice, english muffins for the morning. We also enjoyed the banana bread and cookies baked by Terri.We are looking forward to our next visit.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my husband, I and our two pups arrived we knew we picked the right home for our three month stay. We were stocked with fresh baked goodies, assorted cereals, milk, orange juice, water, tea, banana bread and treats for our puppies! The back yard was amazing our pups loved it. Mike works very hard on the yard and their beautiful garden. We loved being walking distance to the mansions, cliff walk, lower Thames shopping and so much more. There is a park directly across the street where our pups could socialize. Mike and Terri go out of their way to take care of their guests. We even had full use of their kitchen which was nice that we didn't have to eat out all the time. While we weren't there during the summer, there was still plenty to see and do plus we got to be there for the first part of spring and MAJOR winter sales in town, score!!! Terri and Mike provided the latest news for events in town and anything else we needed. We know we will be coming back to Newport and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! We came there as strangers and left as part of the family.

Ps. They have an awesome deck to sit out on with your own grill!

Newport Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 11 year old daughter, and I visited Newport for the first time and stayed here. I can't say enough about Terri and Mike's service and hospitality. We felt like we were being taken care of by family. The space was spotless and just the right size for us with unexpected touches like baked goods and fruit upon arrival. We woke up to a peaceful breeze and birds chirping each morning. Mike provided beach towels and chairs and even drove us one evening to the local beach, so we had more time to enjoy the water. The location is ideal for all Newport has to offer. For us, Terri and Mike made it relaxing, fun, and a time to remember. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

A True Gem In Newport

  • 5 of 5

Hawthorn House perfectly met our needs for a Newport Thanksgiving week.

The description and photos are what you get and more. Hospitality, friendly accommodating

service when needed. Supplied with the basics in the refrigerator and delicious baked goods.

This B&B is located within 5 to 10 minutes to the Cliff Walk, Mansions, Ocean Drive, Historic Newport and all it has to offer but just outside of the congestion, which is a good thing.

My husband and I are small breed dog owners and I am physically challenged, so finding

your lovely B&B was a blessing. Thank you and I would not hesitate to

recommending your establishment or stay at the Hawthorn House next time I can visit Newport.

Highly Recommend the Hawthorne House

  • 5 of 5

I loved my week in this charming B&B. Terri and Mike were so accommodating. The place was quiet and had all needed conveniences; love the deck. I spend time with a lot of family and friends while in Newport, so this was the perfect place to rest and relax at days end. Convenient location. Would definitely stay there again.
