Elegant double Jacuzzi baths await you...

We invite you to experience the most luxurious bed and breakfast in Newport, Rhode Island, the Francis Malbone House. Located along Newport’s downtown harborfront, the Francis Malbone House is downtown Newport’s only Five Star Diamond award-winning B&B.

The inn has twenty luxurious rooms ranging from elegant queen and king rooms with working fireplaces, to spacious master suites and our separate colonial home, the Benjamin Mason House. Private garden patios, double jacuzzis and gas fireplaces are just a few of the amenities that grace our rooms. Returning guests often ask for ‘their’ room by name. You will too!

Come celebrate the special events that take place in Newport year-round, or create your own special event – a romantic getaway, anniversary, elopement or birthday treat, company meeting – we will be happy to assist you in making your stay a memorable one. Gift certificates are a wonderful present, and we are happy to customize them for you – just give us a call!

We love and adore the Francis Malbone House. We spend our Valentines every year here. We always get our courtyard room, with the lovely patio. The staff is the absolute best. The tea time and breakfast are delicious. Situated right in the heart of Newport, what else could be better?

We stayed at the beautiful Francis Malbone House in late January, and it was one of the most memorable get aways that we have had in a long time! The inn is spectacular, beautifully appointed with cozy sitting rooms, roaring fireplaces, and beautiful antiques throughout.

This was our first stay at the Francis Malbone House, and my first trip to Newport. Will, Janet, and the entire staff were friendly, welcoming, and very helpful. The house itself, was just what we were looking for in a romantic weekend getaway.

Perfect spot for a romantic getaway. The room had a very comfortable bed as well as a working fireplace. Great location for access to downtown Newport. All the best restaurants and bars are within a short walk.

Everything from tea time to breakfast was wonderful and the room was as perfect as can be. This will be a yearly getaway for our anniversary now that we found this inn. We stayed in the Benjamin Mason Suite which is separate from the main house. The bathroom was spectacular …
