Overlooking Newport Harbor, directly across from the renowned harbor and waterfront restaurants on Bowen's Wharf, the Fairfield Long Wharf Resort is located in Newport, R.I. The resort is convenient to area attractions including the Newport Art Museum and the International Tennis Hall of Fame, both under one mile from the property. Spring Street, the main thoroughfare of the Historic Hill district is also less than one mile from the property. The district is home to the "cottages," summer mansions constructed by the affluent during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Shopping, dining, and entertainment options are available, with Thames Street hosting the most numerous and popular venues in town. All suites provide kitchens with full-size refrigerators, ranges, microwave ovens and dishwashers. Master bathrooms feature jetted tubs and other standard amenities include VCRs and cable television with premium channels. Dial-up Internet access is available for a fee.
The indoor section of the indoor/outdoor pool features a waterfall and a jetted tub. Another tub is located outdoors and the resort features a health club, sauna and a private surround-sound movie theater. A recreation director is on duty and tour assistance, business services and safe-deposit boxes are available. There is a children's activity room, a video rental library and a barbeque pavilion on site. Newport Bay Club and Hotel is nearby if you like this area.
Just over two miles from the inn, is The Breakers Mansion, originally the home of the Vanderbilt family. The original furnishings and a massive cubed- hall sheathed in marble adorn this manor. The Cliff Walk, a three-and-one-half miles away, borders the back lawn of the mansion. This is a beautiful place for a New England getaway!
