Merrilee is the host of hosts! When we arrived she gave us the complete low down on Newport - where to get coffee in the morning, cheap eats, a great afternoon walk through the town to the mansions...and more! The location of this guest house is great for getting into "downtown" Newport or out to the Cliff Walk and the mansions. We went to a wedding at Rose Cliff and it was an easy Uber ride there and back. A much better value than the hotels other guests stayed at!

I wasn't able to make it there due to last minute unforeseen circumstances but communication with Merrilee was a pleasure as well as her promptness in responding and resolving. I really hope to make it happen soon. Such a perfect location!

The only issue was parking. Thank you.

Merrilee User Profile

I am originally from Seattle, Washington. After many years of living in various parts of the East Coast of the USA and overseas, I settled in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.

Throughout most of my life I have been a Real Estate agent, as I am now. My regular international solo journeys have taken me to nearly every corner of the world.

While living in Boston, Massachusetts in the early '90's, I frequently visited the nearby resort town of Newport, Rhode Island, and fell in love with it. In 2002 I moved to Newport and purchased my current residence, known at the William Gyles House, in downtown Newport. Shortly thereafter I turned it into a guesthouse.

I enjoy meeting people from all over the world who regularly pass through the doors of the William Gyles Guesthouse and introducing them to our beautiful City-by-the-sea.
