I totally concur with all positive reviews of the Wayside....the Wayside is the complete package...for a specific traveler. Great Location: Check; Comfortable rooms: Check (hey, its a former mansion across from The Elms on Bellevue); Great breakfast (included in room price): Check; VALUE: DOUBLE CHECK (parking is FREE). But there's more...when you check into the Wayside you meet the owners...try... More

We stayed here this past weekend and we were glad we did. The house has a lot of character and is in a great location. The Elms mansion is literally across the street. Lorraine and her niece Alesia run this place and are very welcoming and accommodating. The upstairs hallway is very nice with a book shelf with books and... More

If you are looking for a place to stay on a summer weekend in Newport for about half the price of the major hotels this is that. BUT for the price it does not live up to what it should be. The staff is very friendly. But the facility has not been kept up. After looking at the pool we... More

My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a cozy large home with a pool and a lovely breakfast. Our hosts were wonderful, friendly people. We felt like we were staying in a friend's home. We were able to walk to many sites from the home. Would definitely recommend the Wayside Guest House.

We stayed in the Library Room which was very classy and huge! We had a door right on to a porch and the swimming pool. The staff was so friendly and accommodating they made us feel like old friends visiting. The bed was very comfy and stylish. It is a nice en suite. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks Lorraine...

The Wayside has all the charm of a bed and breakfast with all the splendor of a Newport mansion. I was greeted by Lorraine and Alicia with warm cookies at the door!
