Attending my class reunion out of town, I booked a room at the Wayside Guest House in Newport. I wanted to be able to walk to all the local attractions and still be in the middle of history. I checked it out on line and made the reservations. Upon arrival, it was just as I expected, a grand old home right on Bellevue Avenue. The room was not a room, it was a huge magnificent stateroom complete with Huge Center fireplace, four poster canopy bed, fit for a (well) Queen! Breakfast was served in one of the old dining rooms. It really was a stay I will long remember, yoou can't beat Newport Rhode Island and I will gladly stay at the Wayside Guest House in the future. It was so much beeter than the now too familair commercial hotels and it provides a small glimpse of what it must of been like in it's hay day.
