The Francis Malbone House
Newport, RI 02840
A 1760 estate-turned-inn, the Francis Malbone House exudes a sense of elegance that harks back to the days when a wealthy shipping magnate called it home—updated with modern-day amenities, of course. Well-appointed rooms, period furnishings, a gourmet breakfast, and afternoon tea are just a few of the luxuries to tempt travelers. Voted Best Elegant Escape.
The Francis Malbone House, in Newport, Rhode Island, is a three-story brick Georgian mansion. Meticulously restored in the 1960s, the original mansion has acquired additions and an adjacent property in the years since, and is now a 20-room inn.
