good breakfast at B&B within 1 hour of Newport
My significant other and I are going to a wedding reception in Newport, RI this Friday night, and we thought we would stay over at a B&B then walk around (either in the woods or a nice town for walking) that Friday night. Does anyone here have a suggestion for a B&B with good food in a relatively picturesque area good for such walking where we could stay? We'd prefer not to drive more than 1 hour to get there from Newport on Friday night as we'll probably be leaving the reception fairly late.
Check out the East Bay B & B across the bridge in the center of Jamestown. www.eastbaybandb.com
We've stayed there and enjoyed it very much. Others have rated it highly on tripadvisor. Owner is a gourmet chef, so breakfast is great. Walk to the Jamestown Oyster Bar or Chopmist Charlie's for dinner.

The beaches on Aquidneck Island are gorgeous. There are three town beaches and Sachuest Point, a wildlife Preserve. I mentioned Cliff Walk, which is one of the "must sees" b/c of its path along the coast and by the famous Newport cottages (Gilded Age mansions)
To find these URLS, I went to iloveinns.com and searched Newport.
