Stunning classic New England property in downtown Newport

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and classic looking New England rental, close to all the downtown Newport sights and dining. Kitchen is gorgeous--looks like newly renovated. Ample sleeping space for a large group. Having the private bath and sitting area for each suite was an amazing added bonus! Loved the character of the place and would recommend for a large group staying in Newport, looking for walking distance to everything.

We stayed at the Howland house over a 5 day period when our daughter got married in Newport. It was perfect for our family of 10, including 2 children. The rooms were very clean and there were plenty of towels and linens. It was a great location for us to walk to the various restaurants and shopping areas. We definitely would recommend this property to anyone who needs several rooms for any overnight stays.
