We stayed in Victoria's room, and I swear, I woke up a few times just to enjoy how incredibly comfortable I was. Other than that, I heartily second all of the positive comments I've read here. The location is terrific, and Lisa and Randy are the nicest B&B hosts I've had the pleasure of meeting.

Artful Lodger offers everything you are expecting from B&B: nice room, great location close to every Newport attraction; tasty home made breakfast with nice easy conversation and as a bonus a killer view from the top floor terrace. The building is older so this in turn brings some charm into the situation. 2 min walk to the Elms and 8...

We chose the Artful Lodger back in March because it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. It was the perfect location and innkeepers, Randy and Lisa were delightful.

My boyfriend and I decided to do an extended weekend (3 nights, Friday to Monday) and found The Artful Lodger for our Newport destination. We opted to stay in the Rose room, which is a little bit smaller than the others and the private bathroom is right next door, instead of inside like all of the other rooms. Pros: -Lisa...

My wife and I just spent a night at the The Artful Lodger Inn and we haven't stopped singing its praises.
