The Governor Bradford House is a hotel in a historic building located on a working farm. The innkeeper welcomed us and provided an orientation to the farm and gardens. The small goats added to the ambiance. An excellent and ample breakfast is included in the price of the room. Bristol is rich with history and close to Providence and Newport.... More

Mt. Hope Farm is a great base for the tiny town of Bristol. Our family of two adults and a teenager enjoyed the quaint and comfortable rooms, a self-tour of the farm grounds, a nice walk down to the water, and a tasty and companionable breakfast in the dining area. Our host was very gracious and considerate supplying gluten-free options... More

We decided to stay at the Mount Hope Farm in part to be out of the hubbub of Newport (but not too far away) and in part to support the idea of a non-profit organization running a B&B on a national historic site property. Our room, the Byfield Room, was lovely and spacious, with a handsome, four-poster bed, a fireplace,... More

Lovely place, beautiful pastoral surroundings and two additional places to stay on the property: North Pasture House and South Pasture House. If you stay here on a weekend, there is an amazing Farmer's Market in the field in the summer and in the Barn in the winter. Great breakfast...very comfortable room...highly recommended!

An excellent place to get away if you are from near or far. The farm has many farm animals and is growing into a sustainable, educational experience. The B&B is very... More

What a wonderful surprise! This quiet spot nestled among the quaint little seaside town of Bristol. Very laid back, it was like being at home. Delicious breakfast cooked each morning and fresh baked goods and tea set out in the kitchen during the day. We wandered to the piano room to enjoy some music and into the game room for... More

Very nice location for a wedding. Catered food was great. Dinner was served family style in the barn. Only problem was that each item was about 10 minutes apart. Fish - 10 min later - rice - 10 min - beef - 10 min - potato - 10 min - beans. Awkward way to eat. Barn was nicely renovated but... More
