About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

For over a decade,proprietors Gene and Elaine Blood have been welcoming travelers to Hill court Bed and Breakfast, with many of their guests returning summer after summer. One reason is Hill court's enviable location---it offers the quiet green lawns and trees of a residential neighborhood combined with walk-able access to the hustle and bustle of downtown. The guestroom itself (with private bath)is also amazingly private, sitting alone on the third floor and top floor of the sunny residence. Breakfast is another reason people return--fresh pastry,fruit,juices,cereal and coffee or tea all served either inside the cozy kitchen or on the house's beautiful covered deck. As Hill court's only guests on any given visit, you will feel like you are in a home away from home but very near to all that Newport has to offer.

We had a wonderful time staying with Elaine and Gene. They were very friendly, the home was in a perfect location (about a mile walk from the downtown of Bannister's Wharf, etc...). Loved how quiet yet convenient it is (parking can be a pain sometimes) so being able to walk was great.

It was nice having the privacy of having the upstairs to ourselves. Our hosts were very helpful with dinner suggestions, tours to take, etc... and were fun to talk with. Many thanks to both of you1

A great Home Away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Hillcourt B & B was truly a fine example of the essence that we have come to enjoy when utilizing numerous Home Away locations over the years.

Elaine and Gene's gift of hospitality is evident from the moment they greet you with their smiles and an immediate sense that you are a part of their warm/ welcoming home.

Along with their desire to make sure all of our interests and needs were met, ranging from our comfortable room to a great breakfast each morning , it was our greatest joy to just sit and talk with them while learning more about the history of Newport and contemporary activities that the typical tourist would never know.

We were so blessed - and refreshed - during our time with this special couple that plans for return stays in the months and years to come were initiated as soon as we found ourselves pulling out of their driveway.

Thank you again Elaine and Gene!! Hope to see you soon......

We attended a weekend Wedding Event July 8 - 11 2016 in Newport Rhode Island. We were very fortunate to find Hillcourt Bed and Breakfast

Elaine and Gene were Fabulous Hosts. Their Lovely Home has a Private 3rd Floor Bedroom with Full Bath, Airconditioning and Flat Screen TV

Parking at their door is a breeze, a welcome benefit

Each morning Gene prepares a Lovely Breakfast...Fresh Fruit, Yogurt, Muffins etc to be enjoyed on their Patio or in their dining room area

Spotlessly Clean, and easy walking access to Thames Street and downtown Newport.

Elaine and Gene share lots of helpful information about Newport and are a Delightful Couple

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and will look forward to our next visit

We had a wonderful stay! Gene and Elaine are wonderful people who truly care about their guests! Their house feels like a home and was close to everything we did, but far enough to get out of the the hussle and bussle of downtown!
