Artful Lodger Inn Information


The Artful Lodger Inn in Historic Newport Rhode Island was built circa 1850 one block from the Harbor, located in the Mansion District. It has been operating since 1992 after being meticulously restored by owners, Rory & Ric Ranucci. The Inn has ample off street parking and a Full breakfast is served in our Conservatory with stunning views of the Newport Harbor. The year 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of The Artful Lodger Inn and corresponded to the 205th anniversary of our “literary patron saint” Charles Dickens. The original owners (now retired) Ric & Rory Ranucci, both performing musicians, acquired the Inn in 1992, they embarked upon the project that continues to this day. Philemon Hadley is the resident Innkeeper/Manager and is Native to Newport. He is a classically trained Chef who has worked and studied under world renowned Chefs from Boston to Nepal, from Vail to San Francisco. Phil prides himself on providing breakfast offerings with a unique flair and highest quality. He and his knowledgeable staff are eager to help our guests get the most of their time with us as they are planning their trip or after they arrive. What our guest are saying about an excellent choice for Anniversary Getaway "The Havisham Suite is outstanding! Very clean, jacuzzi tub, fireplace, quiet. Phil was very helpful recommending restaurants, especially since we were visiting during the Aquidneck Island natural gas situation and not many Newport restaurants were open. Breakfast was always freshly made to order and the daily muffins are superb! The Inn is conveniently located to many shops and restaurants." What our guests are saying about our Excellent Location and Delightful Accommodations "Highly recommend the Artful Lodger Inn. Our room was cozy, comfortable and very clean. Its excellent location allowed us to park our car, and not use it until we were ready to leave Newport. This inn is centrally located to everything fun and interesting.
