“STAY IN A GORGEOUS MANSION!”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We just loved the stay. We felt so welcome. The breakfasts were amazing and the company were so friendly. The owners of this b&b were so helpful with all the needs we had whether it was for dinner reservations, mansion tour tickets, directions...etc. We stayed in the pine room & thought it was so wonderful. The room was more than comfortable with lovely furnishings & the gas fire place. We will definately stay here again!

Room Tip: The pine room was great but if you don't like stairs you may wish to stay on the lower floor. W...

We love that you love, that is what goes into these mansions, love. Whether you are staying with us in our 1886 Victorian home or visiting the mansions that surround the Ivy Lodge. You are very kind to take the time to review us. We are grateful that your stay was identified with love. We too love the Ivy, the Island and the people who continue to support the city by the sea. With out you, the Ivy is just a structure, our guests make it a home. Thank you, thank you.

We loved staying at the Ivy Lodge! Ours was a last minute trip and Darlene was so accommodating and helpful! The house was beautiful (it's location perfect as well!), our room charming and with all the amenities of a luxury hotel, everything you might need was provided, and the hosts would go out of their way to meet any additional need. Their restaurant suggestions were excellent, as well as all the tips on the area they gave us during our stay. Darlene's husband's cranberry pineapple pancakes in the morning were absolutely delicious as well. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I return to Newport, such a great find! Thank you both for the hospitality and we hope to see you again soon!

Thank you for the very nice review, you enhance our experience with running a bed and breakfast, going on 13 years and we are as enthusiastic about Newport as ever before. We know how important it is to steer our guests in the right direction. We are looking forward to the continued elevation of this city by the sea and count ourselves very fortunate to be the keepers in the Inn. We look forward to seeing you again one day. You are very kind to take the time and review us . . . your happiness is our happiness.

My husband and I have been going to newport for over 20 yrs. It was our first stay at The Ivy Lodge. It was wonderful and surpassed our expectations The Lodge has everything you could want, its quiet and you can walk to everything. They serve a fantastic breakfast, the rooms are beautiful as well as clean clean clean and Darlene and Daryl are the nicest and most helpful Innkeepers you will ever meet. Do take Darlene's rec's on places to dine. We absolutely loved it and will be going back.

Room Tip: Just tell the innkeeper what your expectaions are and they will match a room to meet what your wants...

We had a wonderful weekend at your very charming, beautifully decorated inn. Our room was lovely. Everything was very clean and in perfect order. Staff was very nice and friendly. Breakfast was great too. the little extras were very nice too like makeup romover wipes in the bathroom, hot cider and cookies and other snacks throughout the day.

Room Tip: walking distance to the mansions
