About Jeff Zemanek and Terri Smith
Terri loves wine and loves to cook. Jeff loves sports and music. Both love traveling and meeting interesting people and places. We grew up in the suburbs of Cincinnati and 3 years ago moved to the urban environment of Newport and love it!
Jeff Zemanek and Terri Smith purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Jeff Zemanek and Terri Smith chose Newport
The location is perfect...walking distance to museums, music venues, great restaurants and bars. After the building being in Terri's family for the last 40 years, we bought it and put a boutique (Urban Chick) on the first floor. Our timing was perfect as the city is going through an amazing renaissance! We then decided to add The Newport Inn above the boutique and the rest is history. Newport has an interesting history...most of it infamous. It was Vegas before there was Vegas. All that has changed now, but the history remains a colorful part of your stay.
What makes this Apartment unique
We offer private parking, laundry, and shopping discounts at Urban Chick Boutique, located below. We also have bikes that you are welcome to use. It's a beautiful walking neighborhood with many things to do and enjoy. if you love beautiful homes and buildings built in the 1850's to 1920, this is the place to take in the architecture from this wonderful era.

Unanimous — we plan to return!
We came to indulge my husband in a Cincinnati Reds game. ‘‘Twas our first time staying in the Cincinnati area. The reviews for The Newport Inn won us over and we could not be happier.
Firstly, the location is PERFECT! This is such a remarkably walkable area. It’s an easy walk to the stadium (and National Underground Railroad Freedom Center) as well as several restaurants, shops, music and aquarium on the Kentucky side. Seriously walkable and incredibly friendly.
Secondly, the accommodations are VERY comfortable. Beautiful furnishings. Plenty of space for the four of us. Truly pleasant. We wanted for nothing.
Thirdly, Jeff was super responsive and available to answer any questions we might have.
The Boutique below was a lovely bonus! Yup. We shopped.
We’d love to make this an annual excursion. Yes. It was that much fun.
It’s a sincere, neighborhood feel.
Just what we expected
Very simple check in. Let us park early before going to the baseball game. Nice town!
Ideal for family
Everything was perfect! Such a great value for a family instead of a hotel room
Cool place, great owners, a little noisy early morning on Friday night when bars let out.
The stay was pleasant, the place was clean and welcoming.
Thank you Rosanne!
My kiddos and I loved the loft!! It was amazing. Best nights sleep I’ve had in a long time. The shop had great stuff and Terri treated us like family and even made time to fit my daughter in for a hair appointment last minute. Great people, great place.
We loved having you Rochelle!

Our Inn is in Historic Newport. Close to restaurants, family activities, great views, nightlife, sporting events, riverfronts in Newport and downtown Cincinnati. You’ll love the ambiance, the people, the outdoors space, the lively neighborhood. Make sure to check out Newport on the Levee with live music, comedy clubs, and a world class aquarium. Seasonal Ghost Tours, as well as Gangster Tours will give you a historic perspective of this quaint town!
The Innkeepers, Terri Smith and Jeff Zemanek had a vision to create a small boutique hotel allowing guest to experience the best of Historic Newport.
This 1,000 sqft suite is a 2 BR (King Serta i-Comfort beds) with a fireplace in each, and a huge walk-in shower. We also have a washer and dryer for our guests to use.
Located just a few blocks from the Ohio River, we are located right in the heart of the historic district in a beautiful turn of the century building. If you would also like to experience the big city, a walk or carriage ride to downtown Cincinnati creates a whole new dimension. The end result is a luxurious stay, which combines the best of both worlds.
Jeff and Terry are mostly available. They live 5 minutes away. Our boutique is downstairs and the girls that work there are always happy to help!
Do Historic Newport right and experience all this little town with the big city has to offer. From nightlife to museums and cultural destinations to world-class eateries and sporting events, there won’t be a dull moment during your stay with us.
Terri loves walking to the farmers market, shopping in the antique stores, and of course bourbon! Jeff loves all of the music venues within walking distance.
Getting around town is very easy! Walk to so many things! Bike to more. Uber, LYFT are available, also the Southbank Trolley!
