“A Most Pleasurable Experience”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

Brian and Fran are long time industry professionals who take the comfort of their guests very seriously. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts in various parts of the world and staying at the Sarah Kendall House was a most pleasurable experience. The property offers manicured gardens, a comfortable porch, thoughtful common areas, and a stellar location with great views. The hosts provide fantastic homemade breakfast and useful advice, in addition to certain amenities often overlooked in a poor economy.

We booked in for one night via the tourist information centre in Newport, there was some sort of mix up with the price which we got slightly cheaper than it should have been, however the price we were quoted was honored but we were put in a small room with a separate bathroom next door which luckily worked out ok as we were the only guests on that floor, it has to be said the bed was not very comfortable but that is the only complaint. The house is really lovely and very clean and Bryan the owner was a very genial host.

We've stayed in quite a few B&B's in our travels. Sarah Kendall ranks up there with some of our favorites. The host, Bryan, couldn't do enough for his guests! The inn is close to the center of town, so location is great! There's a nice little park across the street for relaxing or just looking at the beautiful Naragansett Bay, which can also be seen from the wrap around deck of the Sarah Kendall. Breakfast was just divine, with something for everyone! BeautWish B&B's were a little cheaper in Newport, or we'd go back every three day weekend! Beautiful ocean breezes to sleep by at night were a great addition to our stay!

My husband and I stayed at Sarah Kendall House 3/31/11, and had a wonderful experience. The owner,Bryan, was wonderful, very informative. The room was beautiful, with an unbelievable view of the harbor. Nicely situated, not a busy street, but a great location. Will definitely come back.

Reviewed 18 February 2011

The Innkeepers are super nice, exceptionally knowledgeable about the area and are very proud of their Inn. The Inn is beautiful, the tower has a view of the whole city. Our room was very lovely, well decorated, antiques throughout as well as a fireplace perfect for the cold February night. Breakfast was delicious included eggs and ham, fruit, bagels(from the innkeepers bagel shop) and doughnuts, juice, coffee and tea too. I highly recommend visiting the Sarah Kendall House, we will definitely be back to visit in the Summer.
