For a nautical night on Newport Bay, walk up the gangplank of the Newport Belle, the only sternwheel B&B in North America. This is a unique and charming floating B&B, with 5 rooms, or cabins, all with private bathrooms. The rooms, on two decks, are small but have nice touches like beadboard wainscoting, a little table and two chairs, and windows that let in lots of light and give you a sense of being right on the bay (which you are). The decor is quasi-Victorian but kept fairly simple. The public areas on the top deck include a parlor and a sunroom where you can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the evening. People with major mobility issues would probably find it difficult to navigate the boat’s staircases.
