From the second we walked through the massive front door, you could tell this was going to be a great stay. The staff and owners are very attentive and accommodating. The main entryway is a site on its own. We have been coming to Newport for the last few years, and now that we have kids, it made it tough...

Three nights at the Ivy Lodge were a gift from our children and grandchildren for our 50th Wedding Anniversary! It's almost indescribable, that's how wonderful it was. Located in the mansion district, an easy walk to Cliff Walk and to Bellevue Avenue . . . and beyon. The Turret Room on the 2nd floor is a large, comfortable King with...

We stay at B&B every year for our anniversary and the Ivy Lodge was absolutely wonderful! It is now one of our favorites. Innkeepers and Lisa were very friendly and helpful from moment we arrived until we left. Our room was beautiful, good size and very clean. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon. - D&R Bartels

Ivy Lodge is under new management in the last two years. Much is still the same since we last visited in 2012. We noticed that some of the yard work hadn't been done and the hanging plants hanging from the porch were no longer there. We're hoping the lodge isn't proving to be too much for the new owners. The...

Thank you for taking the time to write a thoughtful review. We appreciate the feedback, it helps to get information out. Pillows are a very important element to a good night's sleep. There are a lot of different opinions on what makes the best pillow. We have chosen to use a hypoallergenic firm pillow. We find that matches up best....

We recently spent a kids free weekend at the Ivy Lodge. From the time we entered the magnificent foyer to our room - The Savannah - to the day we left :(, the Ivy was wonderful and so welcoming.

A lovely B&B in the heart of beautiful Newport. Innkeepers were very helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. We stayed in the trunk room, and was very satisfied. A lovely place to stay. Breakfast was delicious each morning. Would most certainly recommend.

We flew up to Newport from Wilmington, NC during the week of December 8th to the 12th, 2015. I didn't know what to expect. The pictures on their website were nice, but I'm not a "B&B" kind of guy. I'm also not someone who speaks in hyperbole, which has devalued reviews and descriptions of personal experiences across the entire spectrum...

Owner was amazing, from initial booking to departure, he couldn't have been nicer, our room was lovely, clean, bed was super comfortable, and the breakfast was superb, not your run of the mill buffet, but individually cooked eggs, sausage, etc. The Inn is conveniently located on a quiet side street, in proximity to the Cliff Walk, and all of the...

We came to Newport for the St. Patrick's Day parade and decided to stay the night. The Ivy Lodge was a pleasant surprise. Hard to believe that this "cottage" was a summer home back in the day!
