Ever have an aunt or relative that welcomes you with open arms and makes you feel at home the moment you arrive? Well this was my experience in a nut shell with delicious food and such a clean and comfortable home.
My gf really wanted to spend some alone time so we decided to go away for the weekend. On that very same day I called around places and found this little gem. It was about 8:30 and Josie may have been the only in town with an open room. She really took a chance on me since it was a same day reservation and was going to be arriving late. I took just the same chance, as she was very pleasant over the phone and didn't even look her place up. She has parking in the back and there was plenty of on street parking when we arrived late that night. She let us know how to get in and left the ac and light on in our room when we arrived. The bed was firm with a plush pillow top and very comfortable egyptian cotton sheets. This is coming from someone who has a back injury and does not sleep well in other beds but his own. The next morning we encountered the pleasant smell of bacon when we came out of our room. When we came downstairs, she greeted us with such a pleasant welcoming and immediately felt like a relative I had not seen in such a long time. Fresh coffee, fruit and orange liquor flavored challah french toast to dye for with fresh maple syrup. We were not very hungry after that breakfast till very late in the afternoon. The rest of the home was our area to explore after breakfast. The decor mixed with the older style of home was so charming. Very very clean. The location is not necessarily a 2 minute walk to downtown or the beach, but rather a fun, quick walk while getting to know the neighborhood and the big homes along the way. Not to mention how quiet it is since we are not on the mail streets.
That night after our dinner reservations in town, my gf and I got in very late and Josie was kind enough to leave a delicious fruit tart she had made earlier in the day. Just as delicious as her breakfast and late night snack, next morning's main breakfast dish was an asparagus frittata. The breakfast alone is well worth the stay and her knowledge around the town and family style demeanor was unmatched. Staying at a hotel in town would be a sin after knowing about this little gem.
If you are looking for a little romantic weekend, and to disconnect from the fast life, you will feel right home in this charming and peaceful Inn. I have stayed at a few BnBs and this is one of my favorite ones. We are making it a point to come visit Josie anytime we come back to Newport and would not think of staying anywhere else.
Thanks Josie for a wonderful weekend as we could not have asked for anything better!
