Historical Inns near Newport Harbor

Located along a tree-lined street near Newport’s harbor, the Inns of Newport paint a charming picture of what New England was like in the old days. The Clarkeston, The Cleveland House, and the Admiral Farragut Inn all neighbor one another on the centrally located Clarke Street. The inns are part of the quaint Newport Historic District, where gas lamps light the streets and many clapboard buildings date back to the colonial era.

After selecting a room type, you will be placed at one of the inns based on availability.

The Clarkeston

Built in the early 18th century, The Clarkeston was extensively restored in 1993 to update amenities while preserving aspects of the original construction (it’s now listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Throughout the inn, you’ll find antique furnishings, burnished hardwood floors, and several four-poster beds. A brick fireplace warms sunny room seven, which is accented with white wicker furniture and pastoral art. The Clarkeston also serves breakfast each morning for an extra fee.

The Cleveland House

Across the street, the vibe is strictly Victorian at The Cleveland House. Each of the 12 rooms is elegantly appointed with vintage furniture and lacy accents; some rooms have hot tubs. The Cleveland House’s daily breakfast is not included with this Groupon.

Admiral Farragut Inn

The Admiral Farragut Inn also harks back to Newport’s old days. Each of the guest rooms is unique—some sport Shaker-style four-poster beds and imported English antiques; others feature colonial-style windows. In the morning, breakfast is served for an additional fee.

Melville House Inn

1750 Colonial Inn on a Newport street of houses from the 1700s. Located one block from Newport’s historical Thames Street. A full breakfast and afternoon refreshments are served for an extra fee. The inn consists of five guest rooms with private baths.

No matter which inn you stay at, you’ll check in at The Cleveland House at 27 Clarke Street.

Newport, Rhode Island: Harbor Town with World-Famous Mansions

Newport sits on Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Island, just 30 miles south of Providence and 70 miles south of Boston. With its picturesque cliffs running along the rocky coast, Newport understandably attracted America’s upper class at the turn of the 20th century. The prestigious Astor and Vanderbilt families joined other captains of industry in building their summer “cottages” here—sprawling estates that epitomized the Gilded Age’s glitz and glamour. You can sign up for mansion tours at the historic The Elms, Marble House, and The Breakers, a 70-room Italian Renaissance–style palazzo commissioned by Cornelius Vanderbilt II in 1893 and inspired by the palaces of Genoa and Turin.

Year-round, the Cliff Walk is one of the most popular activities in town. From sunrise to sunset you’ll find visitors strolling the 3.5-mile path, ensconced between the beautiful Newport shoreline and the spectacular mansions. If the conditions are ripe, you might see surfers catching waves on the ocean breakers.

The city slows its pace in winter; find time to shop on Thames and Spring Streets or visit the city’s many museums. The town is home to the National Museum of American Illustration, which features works by Saturday Evening Post artist Norman Rockwell, as well as the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum.

The ocean is easily accessible from Newport’s western, eastern, and southern coastlines. It’s often referred to as “the Sailing Capital of the World,” and in the summertime, fishing boats fill its harbors and beachgoers flock to its shores. Easton’s Beach (or 1st Beach if you’re a local), the largest public beach, sits cater-cornered to the Cliff Walk’s stunning homes. Back on land, the city hosts a variety of festivals, including the Newport Jazz Festival and the Newport Kite Festival, held in the ocean-facing Brenton Point State Park.
