The Lionel Champlin Guest House and associated residences are just a walk to the water, shops, restaurants, marina and more.  The fun bustle of Newport, RI is just a 15 minute car or ferry ride away, and world-class gaming is just an hour away in Connecticut.   You are a short drive to Waterfire in Providence, and many Rhode Island Art & Music Festivals.

Shops nearby the Guest HousePortsmouth offers a unique railway experience on a pedal-driven rail-car, and cycling, hiking and walking are wonderful ways to enjoy the scenery in the entire region.

We provide local newspapers & flyers for many local attractions – just ask us to make a recommendation.   We can help you plan a New England “classic” vacation or find an off-the-beaten-track special hidden gem.  Whether you enjoy bicycling, sailing, scuba diving, shopping, dining, the arts or relaxation, we can help you make the most of your time in RI.
