Editors' Choice - Yankee Travel Guide (2009)

We are pleased to annouce that Ivy Lodge Bed and Breakfast has been selected as Yankee Magazine's Editor Choice Winner for 2009. Below is an excerpt from their review.  We hope you will join us during your next trip to Newport, RI.

Best Victorian Atmosphere say's Yankee Magazine's Editor:

"Just steps from where Vanderbilts and others
once called home, Ivy Lodge is a full-fledged
showcase of Gilded Age grandeur, complete
with a three-story oak-paneled entryway with
stained-glass windows, working fireplaces in
each guest room, and delicate crystal wine goblets
in the dining room. Finally, you'll eat like
it's 1899, thanks to elaborate breakfasts cooked
up by hosts Daryl and Darlene McKenzie. (We
can't get enough of the peach pancakes.) Rates:
from low to high season $129 to $479, including full breakfast.

One of the most interesting inns around, with a three-story Gothic foyer. Don't be surprised if you spot a celebrity (they love this place) over morning coffee. Rates: $129-$479, including full breakfast."
