Historical Bed and Breakfast on Mansion-Lined Street

An enormous copper beech tree presides over the Marshall Slocum Guest House on a mansion-lined street in Newport, Rhode Island. The tree might've been planted by the first owners around the time of the construction of this Victorian bed and breakfast in 1855. That both the tree and the bed and breakfast are still standing today speaks to the quaint appeal of Newport.

Today, innkeepers Mark and Dana Spring carry on the tradition of hospitality at this historical inn. They met while working at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston, and they draw from their experience there to provide first-class service.

Every morning, Mark Spring whips up a sumptuous full breakfast. Possible menu items include crab benedict, blueberry pancakes, or smoked salmon and bagels. Guests can choose to eat in the dining room, on the back deck overlooking the gardens, or anywhere in their room.

The guest rooms are individually appointed with period antiques, nautical artwork, and private baths. The Captain’s Quarters room, for example, features an elegant carved, four-poster canopy bed and a whirlpool bathtub.

Newport, Rhode Island: Upscale Coastal Town with Hints of the Gilded Age

Historical Newport sits on Aquidneck Island, an upscale area lined with coves, harbors, and bays along the Atlantic Ocean. A prominent American port city in the 18th century, Newport contains the most surviving colonial buildings of any city in the country. During the Gilded Age, the city became a summertime retreat for wealthy New Yorkers, who erected sprawling homes along the shoreline. Many of these came to be known as Newport Mansions, and they're available for public tours.

Another remnant of the Gilded Age is Newport’s cliff walk, a 3.5-mile stretch that skirts the city’s eastern shore and has scenic views of the ocean and mansion. There are unpaved sections of the walk and 70-foot drops just off the pathway, so visitors should tread carefully and wear antigravity boots.
