Fodor's Review

Designed by George Champlin Mason, a Newport-based architect also responsible for the historic Chepstow mansion a mile away, this distinctive Swiss chalet–inspired house completed in 1873 has good-size guest rooms decorated in classic Victorian style. All have fireplaces, some have antique claw-foot bathtubs, and luxurious linens top the beds. The inn's well-maintained hardwood floors are works of art in themselves. Blueberry-stuffed French toast is among the favorites at breakfast (included). Murder-mystery weekends, during which guests interact with improv actors to solve crimes, take place October–May.
