Stay At The Mill Street Inn, A Former Woodworking Shop In Rhode Island
Rhode Island is no stranger to unique accommodations — we even have a bed & breakfast on
a goat farm. However, when it comes to a one-of-a-kind stay, we can think of anything more charming than the Mill Street Inn in Newport. Not only is it located in the delightful Historic Hill neighborhood, but the building has a history that spans centuries.
The Mill Street Inn is located in the heart of Newport's Historic Hill neighborhood, where it holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
The building's foundation dates back to the early 1800s, when it was a large woodworking shop that supported the gilded age building industry. The building belonged to J.D. Johnston, who built many of Newport's famous mansions.
The original building was destroyed by a fire in 1890, but Johnston rebuilt it using brick.
The building was used for millwork until the early 1980s, when the current owners purchased it and converted it into a hotel.
In 2007, the hotel and its guest rooms were extensively renovated, so you can count on modern amenities (and WiFi, of course) when you stay.
At the same time, you'll notice all the historic details that remain -- in fact, the renovation project arned an American Institute of Architects Design Award for the sensitive Adaptive Reuse of a historic structure.
So what's it like to stay here? In a word, amazing.
This is an all-suite hotel, which means you can count on spacious accommodations with plenty of amenities.
You can choose between studio suites, deluxe suites, and a townhouse suite, depending on how many you bring with you and how much room you need.
The single Townhouse Suite is the largest choice, featuring two levels, a gas fireplace, and a balcony with amazing views of Newport.
Each morning of your stay, you'll be offered a free continental breakfast served on the hotel's rooftop deck.
And every afternoon, you can snack on baked goods, tea, and other small bites in the dining room. And if you really need to relax, simply spend some time in the onsite spa.
The Mill Street Inn is perfect for a romantic getaway or a staycation with a couple of friends.
And since every suite has a slightly different layout, you may have to stay more than once to find your favorite (that won't be a tough sell).
