Welcome To The Artful Lodger PRIVATELY OWNED & OPERATED SINCE 1992. We welcome you to this Victorian Style home which was built by the prominent King Family of Newport during the Civil War Era circa 1850. The Artful Lodger Inn has been tastefully restored to bring back the appearance and atmosphere of the 1850’s in Newport, prior to The Gilded Age.
From the inn, the Elms Mansion’s magnificent grounds are across Spring Street where grand parties have been held in recent years as they were in The Gilded Age. Artful Lodger may have accommodated some of their numerous guests. The Preservation Society serves lunch in the Gazebo on occasion. Artful Lodger guests have also enjoyed their horse and carriage displays scheduled every other year.
Located between Newport’s Downtown Area, Thames Street and the Mansion Promenade, Bellevue Avenue, The Artful Lodger is a convenient walking distance to most of Newport’s best known attractions, parks and even King Park Beach.
The Artful Lodger serves a full gourmet breakfast in our conservatory which offers spectacular views of Newport Harbor. Our lovingly restored Victorian Inn provides private baths, air conditioning, free WiFi and off-street parking. Our luxurious suites feature jacuzzis and fireplaces to pamper you and induce deep relaxation. Please come stay with us, we can’t wait to meet you!
