My husband and I decided to take a last minute vacation to narragansett. We were able to book two nights at the Richards House. Soon after arriving we went out into the gardens with wine we brought with us. It was probably the most peaceful, enjoyable experience I've had in a while.. the grounds are gorgeous. The house and furnishings were meticulous and tastefully done. The food was nicely presented at 8:45 each morning.

I was in need of some serious R&R, after a difficult personal experience and before I returned to my high stress job of teaching elementary special education. I found just what I needed at The Richards.
Nancy and Steven were welcoming, fun, personable and understand the right amount of input. The historic house has gorgeous gardens, interesting collectibles and beautifully upholstered antique furniture. The highlight of each day's stay was breakfast, served promptly at 8:45. Nancy's cooking is imaginative, varied, and balanced; all baked goods from scratch (muffins, pancakes, johnny cakes, waffles) and all seasoned with fresh herbs from the backyard garden.
After a filling, but not too heavy morning meal, we set out to bike the 7 mile bike trail, located an easy distance from the magnificent castle. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance, as well as shops, the library and a yoga studio.
I would readily spend another week at this fine bed and breakfast.

A perfect stay! We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years. For us, there are three things that make for a great stay- a clean room, a comfortable bed, and quiet. Anything over these is just icing on the cake. The Richards far exceeded our requirements in all three categories and then topped it off with fantastic breakfasts served by gracious owners. We stayed four nights and were served four delicious breakfasts which were different each day. The house and grounds were old, but well maintained and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the place. When we return to Narragansett, which we will, we will hopefully be able to return to The Richards.

Incredible comfort, lovely setting, serenely quiet, wonderful, wonderful breakfast ensemble. The owners were one of the highlights of our vacation. Great personalities and interesting backgrounds. Lovely people....Thank you Steve and Nancy...from Dan and Michele.

Room Tip: Pretty much any room you pick will have the same high quality flair of a quaint BB.

We loved our weekend here. The owners are really nice, welcoming people. The house itself is a beautiful, an old stone home (built in the late 1800s) and the grounds outside the house are nicely maintained with flowers all around. We found the house to be extremely clean and quiet. Each morning, we were treated to home cooked breakfasts which included amazing homemade muffins. We thought the location was very convenient. The home is in a lovely, serene neighborhood about a mile from the Narragansett Town Beach, but you can also drive a short distance to Scarborough Beach too. There were no TVs in our room, but for a getaway weekend, we liked it that way. Overall, this was one of our favorite Bed and Breakfasts we've stayed at, and we will definitely be back.
