People's Choice Winner of TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence!

The Woodbine Cottage- George Champlin Mason House was constructed in 1873 as the palatial, private residence of George C. Mason, the famous Newport architect. This original 25-room Victorian mansion offers graciously appointed historic rooms. The home is decorated in period furnishings, original materials and each guest room is unique designed to evoke history whether it be the life of a servant to the master of the house. The Top of the Hill location is the best location in Newport for the beach goer to the average mansion tourist to the romantics. Newport has so much to offer as the New World's original beach resort town and more recently became famous for having the world's largest number of historic architectural buildings in one town. While the house has been nationally recognized for its historic rooms, the young, hipster owners have received many awards for their cooking as well as their honest and witty concierge services. The sarcastic humor and history make this house a quintessential New England experience.
