Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Seaside retreat was great for our 2 night stay in Newport. It was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. My fiance's only complaint was the cable did not have many options, mainly ESPN, but I don't think that is a draw back since we only spent a couple hours in the room, with the TV on. Overall it was great and perfect for our weekend.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay at the Callender House! I was in Newport for a conference on Goat Island, about a 15min walk away. Downtown was even closer - probably a 7-10 minute walk. The suite was stocked with a Keurig, toiletries, and nice linens and towels. It was tastefully decorated, clean, and well-kept. My only very minor complaint was that the walls were a little thin and I could hear my neighbors in the morning (I was really more concerned that they could hear me because I probably snoozed my alarm a few too many times). Overall, it was a great stay and I would love to come back!

Perfect Newport location

  • 5 of 5

James and Keverne were perfect hosts. Their apartment was cute and cosy and had everything we needed. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants. We were close to main roads for driving to explore other towns. Would definitely recommend Callender House.

Such a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here this past weekend while attending a wedding. It's a wonderful, cozy, clean, and comfortable place. Such a nice change from staying in a hotel. It's way more fun to live like a local in my opinion, and this definitely fits the bill in that regard. The decor is beautiful. Thoughtfully eclectic beachy, but modern at the same time. It was such a nice touch that they provided snacks and other refreshments too. The king size bed was even more comfortable than ours at home! It was also great to have off street parking - just make sure you park ALL THE WAY in. Don't let even an inch of your bumper hang over the sidewalk. NPT PD take notice, trust me! James and Keverne were always quick to reply to any questions before and during our stay. They are terrific hosts who have clearly gone above and beyond to make their Seaside Retreat a true home away from home.
