My wife and I stayed a few nights at The Richards B & B. From the moment we entered the circular driveway, we knew we had arrived at a special place. The house is on a very quiet street, distanced from neighboring properties. We appreciated the peaceful and relaxing location.
The innkeepers, Nancy and Steven were very welcoming, and before long we felt at home. Nancy is filled with personality, and the breakfasts she presents are wonderful. Steven is a gentlemen, helpful, and filled with knowledge about the area.
The house is filled with history, and features a well-stocked library. We stayed in the Blue Room, which was comfortable, well appointed, and roomy. The private bathroom was spacious, and extremely clean, as was the entire house. No complaints, only compliments.
If you like the outdoors, you’ll enjoy walking on a short path through their woods to the Narragansett shoreline. It’s a rocky yet scenic spot. Very safe.
Being gardeners ourselves, we especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Nancy will gladly provide a tour and name every unique plant. She has a wealth of plant knowledge, so we enjoyed the conversations.
There’s plenty of places to eat dinner nearby. We enjoyed the vegetarian offering at Crazy Burger Cafe. Newport is an easy drive from here.
Only wished we discovered The Richards B&B earlier. We look forward to our next stay here.More
