Description

Circa 1760. Newport, during the 18th century, was one of the busiest harbors in the Colonies. A shipping merchant, Colonel Francis Malbone, built the historic portion of this home, which includes nine of the inn's 20 guest rooms. The newer addition was completed in 1996. Fine furnishings fill the rooms, most of which offer a fireplace. Twelve rooms include a Jacuzzi tub. The inn's location, on the harborfront, is another wonderful feature. The breakfasts, heralded by Bon Appetit, include entrees such as pecan waffles with maple whipped cream or eggs Benedict with a roasted red pepper hollandaise. Guests are sure to be busy exploring Newport with its abundance of historic sites and spectacular mansions.

A very special place....

My wife and I stayed at the Francis Malbone House recently and we were very impressed. The room was beautifully appointed and the service was very good. One of the best inns that we have ever stayed at.
