“a piece of Newport history constructed in 1873”
The Architect’s Inn- George Champlin Mason House was constructed in 1873 as the palatial, private residence of George C. Mason, the famous Newport architect. This original 23-room Victorian mansion offers graciously appointed historic rooms. The home is decorated in period furnishings, original materials and each guest room is unique designed to evoke history whether it be the life of a servant to the master of the house. The Top of the Hill location is the best location in Newport for the beach goer to the average mansion tourist to the romantics. Newport has so much to offer as the New World's original beach resort town and more recently became famous for having the world's largest number of historic architectural buildings in one town.
We stayed here for a night after finding a good deal on the Hotel Tonight. We didn't actually arrive until after midnight, but the innkeeper was very accommodating and left a key out for us with instructions on how to find our room, which was tucked up on the top floor of the house under an angled attic roof--super cool and cozy, with an ornate bathtub and the like. Everyone takes off their shoes when they enter the house, so you have a sense of it being very personal and friendly, family-like. The only thing I regret is that, since we booked through an app (the same goes for other deal platforms), our stay didn't include breakfast. This was a bummer because the dining room and sitting rooms were beautiful and we didn't spend much time there. The innkeeper gave us a great suggestion for a place in town to grab breakfast, though, and everything was walkable within 5 minutes. Would recommend!
