Nestled on a quiet street just off famed Bellevue Avenue, the Brinley is centrally located in Newport's Historic Hill District.

Park in our ample off road lot and walk down cobblestone streets past hundreds of restored colonials on your way to tour the Touro Synagogue, Trinity Episcopal Church, the lavish mansions of the Gilded Age, or the Tennis Hall of Fame.

The quaint shops and restaurants lining Thames Street, the lively wharves, the magnificent harbor, the Cliff Walk with it's panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean (pictures) - all are in easy walking distance. The oldest continuously used library in the country, Redwood, and the are just around the corner.


Newport's Brinley Victorian Inn is one of the larger inns in Newport. It consists of two connected houses: one built circa 1850 has seven rooms; the other built circa 1870 has nine. Each house has it's own porch and a parlor where guests can opt to relax a while prior to the commencement of a busy day, or likewise, at the end of one.

You may also choose to sit in the private courtyard, situated between the two houses, which is stocked during the spring and summer with a variety of flowers and plants. It's also an ideal spot to enjoy your lavish continental breakfast on sunny mornings (freshly baked and prepared by Jennifer), or maybe to sunbathe away from the hustle and bustle of Newport when the mood dictates.


Since the Inn's focus is to create a peaceful and relaxing getaway, a small library with numerous books and magazines is available for guests to browse during their stay.

The Brinley is a smoke free establishment fully compliant with Rhode Island's fire regulations. Children over eight are generally accepted but, sorry, we cannot accommodate your favorite pet.
