Newport House Bed and Breakfast is Williamsburg, Virginia's, most historically authentic Bed and Breakfast. This Colonial Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast was built to museum standards in 1988, from the 1756 design by famous architect Peter Harrison for the Banister Plantation near Newport, RI, that was destroyed on its 200th birthday to make way for a carpark.
Harrison was also the architect of the Williamsburg Capitol of 1749, and the Williamsburg Market of 1757 (not yet rebuilt). The Yorkshire-trained Harrison (1716-1775), a resident of Newport, designed over 200 buildings in every British colony from Newfoundland to Barbados (also England, Ireland, India and China), many commissioned out of gratitude for his part in foiling the 1745 French invasion that otherwise would have made permanent French colonies out of all British America and India. Harrison was also Colonial America's top furniture designer.
Newport House Bed and Breakfast a Williamsburg VA, Historic Bed and Breakfast is completely furnished in the period with English and American antiques and reproductions (over a dozen designed by Harrison). Most Williamsburg Bed and Breakfasts are limited to two rooms a piece, which means that we can concentrate on providing luxury and personal service to our guests.
