Located in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island's historic downtown, this welcoming Victorian inn offers views of Newport Harbor and a central location to take in all the wonderful attractions in the area including glorious mansions - neighbors of the Artful Lodger Bed & Breakfast.

The rooms have been lovingly restored to recapture the feel as well as the look of the Victorian period in Newport.

Artful Lodger offers five guest rooms, decorated with a distinctive theme in mind. It won't take much to whisk you back to that bygone era of opulence and gentility. Each room has a private bath and air-conditioning, and many have fireplaces and/or Jacuzzi tubs.

A full breakfast is served each morning in the breakfast conservatory on the third floor. From this vantage point you can take in the breathtaking view of Newport Harbor, the Ida Lewis Yacht Club, and Fort Adams.

While intimately tucked away on Spring Street, the Artful Lodger is only a block away from the center of Newport's shopping, dining, and nightlife district. Ocean beaches, yachting, festivals, antiquing, and boat rentals are also nearby.

Perhaps best of all, however, is the Inn's proximity to the "summer cottages" of the country's rich and famous of the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Elms, one of Newport's most famous mansions and owned by the infamous robber baron E.J. Berwind, is diagonally across from the Artful Lodger. Berwind, a wealthy mining magnate, was determined to be noticed by "the 400" for his extravagances, bold architectural features, and sunken gardens.

Cliff Walk, Ocean Drive, and other Gilded Age mansions are also located within a short walk of the Artful Lodger. Newport houses are famous for representing more architectural styles than any other American city (a local lecturer on the subject has identified 54), so even a leisurely stroll can yield a wealth of beauty and knowledge.

The Artful Lodger, the ideal place for your special occasion or small gathering, is an intimate treasure tucked in amongst Newport's glorious mansions.
