My wife and I had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Mount Hope Farm this past Labor Day weekend while attending wedding events in Bristol and Newport. Our stay there was a most enjoyable and memorable experience. If you are looking for a 1700's farmhouse B&B in a pastoral setting, complete with goats, chickens and pheasants, down the road...

We were there for a wedding (of site) in Bristol and our experience there was warm and welcoming. The staff was very engaging and accommodating. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The grounds were awesome!! Great for morning walks and then a delicious breakfast! The feel of Mount Hope B&B was so much better than that of a hotel,...

If you want to get away from the noise and clanging of city life, this is the place. This historical property is like an oasis, its extensive grounds spreading out a welcome mat as you drive past the strong stone walls that surround the old house once owned by the first governor of Rhode Island. The laid back but helpful...

We've been visiting Bristol for many years because two of our three children went to Roger Williams University. Of all the times we've visited, we've never had a chance to stay at Mount Hope Farm. It was always one thing or another: if I could get through, they were booked, if I couldn't get through, I just gave up. There...

The friendly staff at Mount Hope Farm was so welcoming and charming. The rooms vary in size, and they are all clean, quaint and comfortable. But they are not particularly luxurious, as one might expect from a bed-and-breakfast on a farm. And speaking of breakfast, the homemade breakfasts are great, cooked by yet another charming staff member. The inn is...

We had two nights in Room 11 which is the entire upper floor of the pool house don't be mislead into thinking there is a pool though as we were. We'd packed our bathing suits but weren't too disappointed as it rained most of the weekend anyway! David also, very kindly allowed us to use the kitchen downstairs so we...

My relatives stayed in the inn during my wedding at Mount Hope Farm. They reported that the inn was quaint and the service was friendly. They also loved walking the trails on the property and the proximity to my ceremony by the water. Can't recommend this place enough, for weddings or a simple weekend getaway.

Gracious house with antique furnishings, delicious breakfast, and friendly staff, reasonable, and offers a lovely walk to the Narragansett Bay as well as short drive to Bristol's other sites. WE also enjoyed an excellent dinner at Persimmon in Bristol.

I joined my wife for one night of a business trip. The grounds and living quarters are beautfiul. The service is extraordinary and the rooms have an old world B&B feel with modern amenities. It is all about the experience and would not reccomend this to someone who typically stays at large chain/ resort type hotels. Overall the place is...

My girlfriend and I were fortunate to spend Christmas night at this beautiful Inn. One of our relatives was unable to make it to our home for the holiday and offered us their room. Living in Bristol we would never have considered staying here, we would have missed a special place. The manager handled things with ease and confidence even...
