Location is ideal too, blocks from the waterfront.. Also, you have not lived until you've had Michael's signature breakfast. Delicious every time! Look forward to our next...

They are delightful hosts and provide very comfortable rooms (great bed!). The breakfasts were delicious and artistically presented by Michael. Heather makes the dining room inviting and a...

One street up from downtown restaurants and shopping, this lovely federal period inn put us in the mindset of New England history and visits to the fabled mansions of Newport. Out host and hostess met every need and exceeded all expectations with delicious breakfasts and afternoon coffee, tea and sweets service. The Durfee House is a rare find.
