good breakfast at B&B within 1 hour of Newport

Navigatrix Oct 3, 2006 04:05 PM

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.

    Have you thought about staying in Newport? This is the best time of the year to visit and there are tons of nice B&Bs with great brekkie nearby.

      What are some good ones nearby? We'd definitely be fine with staying in and around Newport--I just assumed that more woods-ward would be better, but I've never been there; so I don't really know. Do you have some suggestions?

      Take a look at the Blueberry Cove Inn B&B in Narragansett. Not far from Newport and you can walk the beaches or around town.
      they have their own website.

        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.

          B&Bs in Newport
          - Victorian Ladies Inn http://www.victorianladies.com/
          (less than one block from beach and Cliff Walk


          - Cliffside Inn http://www.cliffsideinn.com
          (even closer to beach/Cliff Walk


          - Almondy http://www.almondyinn.com
          (downtown, great location with parking


          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.

            Bay Voyage in jamestown is very popular for breakfast and Brunch, it is located right on the waterfront.

              I agree with the Bay Voyage Inn. Their accommodtions are great and the Sunday Brunch buffet is the best in the state.

              It's a short and very pleasant walk to the center of town.

                Jerry, you've inspired me. I've never been "over the bridge to the other island" for brunch before. Love my Atlantic Grille for brekkie, esp. w/ the NYT
