Thank you so very much and we can’t wait to stay here again very soon!
We were able to take advantage of the EBikes that are there and had a wonderful morning biking all over Newport. We walked over to a Mansion for a tour, which was right around the corner. We also walked over to the Cliff Walk. The location is truly ideal.
I can’t imagine staying anywhere else when in Newport. We were joined by some friends for this visit and they were as taken with the Ivy Lodge as we are.
