Our stay was very comfortable. The room was a little smaller than I'd expected, but it was fine for 2 people. The decor was lovely, very Victorian. My favorite part of the experience was the breakfast which was served on the top floor dining room. It had a great view! The breakfast itself was also very good: fresh pancakes, bacon and eggs. I'd definitely go back!

Last minute trip to watch a friend's graduation. Looking for the cheapest & closest place to stay. I stumbled across "The Artful Lodger", I didn't know much about a Bed & Breakfast so I said "Okay, it's affordable" and I took it. Upon reaching the neighborhood I noticed the streets were quite small compared to the west coast so it felt a little cramped. When I pulled up next to The Artful Lodger I thought to myself "Old, lots of trees, needs a paint job, cramped neighborhood, this should be interesting...."
When I arrived I met one of the friendly Inn Keepers who were expecting me. She was very friendly, accommodating, helpful, gave me a grand tour and explained to me how the Bed & Breakfast worked. The inside had a very quaint rustic look about it that gave you a semi-turn of the century / 1960's inviting feeling. Older but nice furniture, very well kept facility, and overall cozy. When I was led up to the conservatory I was in amazement of the view of the Harbor. This is the view you get when sitting for breakfast / Brunch(weekends). Different rooms have different views. Some rooms view the downstairs garden/parking lot. Some rooms have a view of the older historic neighborhood Mansions, and some have a street view. Overall there is view in about 95% of the rooms, and not just a brick wall.
The Inn Keepers are like chameleons, they can adapt to any generation of people weather they're young college kids, working professionals, middle-aged, or retired. And they are very knowledgeable about the area.
Most everything is within walking distance (Pubs, Restaurants, Liquor Stores, Etc...) the main row of shops/restaurants is about 10 blocks away but there are small pubs/shops along the way. There is a hiking path that will lead you to the Atlantic ocean, just ask the Inn Keepers.
Overall I was thoroughly impressed with my stay and I can't wait to plan another trip to Rhode Island for whatever reason.

Just stayed at the Artful Lodger and we could not be happier. My husband and I like to stay at B&Bs whenever we can but sometimes you don't get what you expect. This Inn advertised that they were Downtown and they were.They said they were in the Mansion District and they were across the street from the beautiful Elms Estate. The Artful Lodger's Breakfast Room has a great view of Newport Harbor and the complimentary breakfast was very good and cordially served by the Innkeeper, Jackie. The room we stayed in had a double sized spa tub and a fireplace and was beautiful. It was a special weekend for my husband and I so we splurged a bit but J showed us a couple of the more economical rooms and they were fine for the money. Overall I would recommend the Artful Lodger to anyone who loves Newport the way we do and feel it is a good value.
