FALL, WINTER & SPRING ONLY: BYOB-BYOB (Bring Your Own Breakfast)

In the off season, I usually close down. So many of my repeat guests have asked me to stay open so they can enjoy Newport in the slower months, that I came up with a money saving plan to make coming to Newport and staying at Murray House much more fun.

Pondview Suite Summer bedroom

The rooms at Murray House have their own outside private entrances, so you can come and go as you please. There is also a mini kitchen set up so you can prepare a light breakfast. Or you can hit Newport's great off season breakfast places on the water front. The off season rates start at $139 - $129 for October, $129 for November, $119 for December and $99 starts January 5 and goes to April 1. These rooms have an average in season rate of $215.00. There is a 2 night minimum, pets allowed with a per night pet fee. It's a great deal at Murray House!

Reviews of 1 Murray House Bed and Breakfast
5 of 5 Wonderful stay!|
Love2Travel201011 Winston Salem, North Carolina
This B&B is a hidden gem in a great location just off Bellevue Avenue. Noreen is great to work with and very accomodating of individual needs. She will gladly make excellent restaurant recommends if you want to eat where the locals do. Settle in and enjoy feeling like you have a home away from home while visiting Newport.
5 of 5 Murray House, Newport's dog friendliest destination
AlexandCindyBrown Cincinnati, Ohio
In our brief 3 days visit, we walked our two greyhounds (Samson & Delilah) along the entire Cliff Walk. Little did we know that they are part mountain goat as well.
Our time here was every bit worth the 835 miles we drove from Cincinnati, Oh (West Chester). You must load google earth on your computer. I will post our pictures there for you to find. After all, that's how we found the Murray House.
The dog friendly restaurants were wonderful, and the October weather, sunny & 70' something, could not have been more idlyllic.
Each day we returned to our room, we were enchanted by the new table settings.
Samson & Delilah were overjoyed with the dog treats you left.
Without further digression, Murray House and our hostess, Noreen, far exceeded our expectations in a wondrous setting.
Don't change a thing.
5 of 5 Great stay on my first trip to Newport!

Murray House Bed and Breakfast is absolutely charming! I had a smaller room as it was only my daughter and myself, but it was roomy enough for two. Room was very clean and decorated very nicely with alot attention to detail. The private patio and pool area were beautiful. The innkeeper was very nice and her gourmet breakfasts were delicious! Overall an excellent experience and would definitely stay there again.
5 of 5 Tremendous place!!!

My wife and I spent the better part of the week at the Murray House. Accomodations were excellent! Poolside room was very comfortable and roomy. Breakfasts were spectacular--different every day. Our host Noreen was very helpful pointing out places to go and was on the money with restaurant recommendations. Really enjoyed ourselves. Noreen also delivered tremendous weather!!!
