About the property

Large private suite with bedroom, private bath, living room and kitchen

Built in 1881, our home is walking distance to downtown Newport and First Beach. The third floor suite features a large bedroom with a queen size bed, an expansive living area, a private full bath, and your own eat-in kitchen. There is a second bedroom with a full size bed that we will offer on occasion.

This is a very spacious and beautiful suite in a historic Newport mansion. The home has a distinguished history, and was faithfully restored about 10 years ago. The proximity to town and the beaches make this an ideal location for your visit.

Rhode Island Avenue is dotted with historic Victorian homes. It is close to town and the beaches. The mansions are about one mile away. The center of Newport is a 15 minute walk, as is First Beach. We ride bikes everywhere, and there is a local bike rental shop in walking distance.

We provide an assortment of breakfast items in your suite, including milk, juice, cereal, coffee, fresh fruit and snacks, and bottled water. Let us know if you have any food allergies. Due to fire code restrictions, the kitchen does not have a stove.

We have received nothing but perfect '5 Star Reviews' on the other major listing service. Check our reviews over there for details.

Beautiful place, beautiful hosts! Cannot wait to return, most pleasant surprise was the stocked kitchen. No need to run around shopping before arrival, so appreciated. Everything is within a safe, pleasant, 15 minute walk. So thankful to have found this gem.

Visit to Newport, RI

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the top floor of a beautiful mansion. Property was very well kept, clean and well-maintained. Listing description was accurate and place was like it appeared in the online pictures.

Both Larna and husband were very nice and took care of all of the little details and gave us info about places to go for dinner.

I would definetely recommend staying at their place.

Thank you!

Centrally located and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay so much the first time that we came back the very next time we were in town. House is equidistant from Thames street attractions, beach, and mansions. The walk is about 15 min to Thames at a moderate pace. The room is well appointed and includes a well stocked fridge/pantry for breakfast and snacks. We will definitely stay with Larna again!

Perfect getaway to get the full experience of Newport's charm and history!

  • 5 of 5

This private suite of rooms on the 3rd floor of this beautiful Victorian home is spacious, quiet, and tastefully designed. The neighborhood location gives a great "how the locals do it" feel. The hosts are gracious, going above and beyond to enhance your stay - with a well stocked fridge with snacks and water; movies and games; local dining recommendations; and suggestions for the best place to enjoy a glass of wine to watch the sunset. Can't wait to visit again!

We loved the place as well as the location. It was just the two of us, but the space is big enough to easily have the kids with us, or another couple. It was also very clean. We also liked the fact that we were far enough from the craziness of the harbor but close enough to walk there if we wanted to. We would definitely stay here again!

Thanks, Larna!
