Newport Bed and Breakfasts

La Farge Perry House

A standout among the many great Newport bed and breakfasts, the La Farge Perry House is located in the Kay Street-Catherine Street-Old Beach Road Historic District.
The Inn is named for John La Farge and his wife Margaret Perry La Farge. John was a renowned painter and stained glass artist, and Margaret came from a prominent family, being the granddaughter of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and niece of Commodore Matthew Perry. Matthew lived here from 1861 to 1864.
