How do you know the folks at Newport House are serious about getting the details right? Well, the owners design historic ships. That’s dedication, and if they can put together a boat, you should see what they can do with a B&B. Two rooms are exquisitely adorned with period furniture and canopy beds, and because the guest volume is so low, the owners are keen to help you out with every element of your vacation—if you want. If you just need a little privacy, they’re cool with that, too. It’s all about a 5-minute walk from the Historic Area.
