History and Luxury in a Newport Package!

The Mill Street Inn, so named due to its history as a former nineteenth century mill, is the rare combination of historic charm and modern luxury. Few other places can you enjoy a heart, home-cooked breakfast, then step outside and go for a walk through a neighborhood as seething with beauty and charm as Historical Hill. Aside from it's famous hospitality, inside the inn you'll find a multitude of historic features, including original beams and exposed brick walls from a century ago. Your suite (the whole inn is suites) has a plethora of amenities that will make you never want to leave, such as a down-feather bed with 300-thread count linens, luxurious marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, and flat screen TV's for your viewing pleasure. If you're interested in experiencing scenic Newport for yourself, head up to the rooftop patio for breathtaking views or simply step put the door and walk around to your heart's content!


Among the finest of Mill Street Inn's packages is the Living History Package. Not only will you spend two nights in one of the inn's suites, but you'll dine at The White Horse Tavern, also known as "America's Oldest Tavern" (originally established in 1673). The Tavern is often simply another destination on a tour of the city, and few have the privileged of actually eating there; you will! Afterwards you'll head to one of Newport's famed mansions for a guided tour and a step back into yesteryear.


Few things can compare to the romance found at a historical quaint inn on a weekend getaway. Go explore the small shops and charms of Newport, or stay in and have afternoon tea (served daily in the dining room). Just don't forget to partake in the famous Cliff Walk, a 3.5-mile walking path that winds between the sprawling lawns of the Newport mansions and the pounding surf of the Atlantic!


The Mill Street Inn offers guests the best of modern hotel amenities in a charming historic building. The building, a historic mill that dates back to the 1850's, has been carefully restored into 23 guest suites. Suites offer down feather beds, 400 thread count sheets, rainfall showers, and Lather spa products.


The Inn sits on a foundation that dates back to the early 1800's. It was exceedingly popular, all the way up til 1890, when the building was destroyed by a fire. The owner rebuilt it brick-by-brick, and it remained largely unchanged until 2007, when it underwent an extensive renovation of its 23 guest rooms. This solidified its reputation as a premier luxury property, and guests have been singing its praises ever since!


A quiet snowfall outside your window is the quintessential small inn setting, and you'll truly appreciate it at Mill Street. If you happen to be visiting between Memorial Day and Labor Day, make sure you check out the complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, served on the Hotel's rooftop deck overlooking downtown Newport and Newport Harbor!


Though the Northeastern United States may not be the first region that comes to mind when discussing an island, getaway, you won't be disappointed with the wide selection of activities and attractions you'll enjoy at Mill Street Inn. This unique seaside getaway offers expansive views of the harbor and plenty of opportunities to explore this spectacular coastal scenery at your own pace on a boat cruise or just by walking the shores of Aquidneck Island.
