bathrobe400Welcome to our lovingly cared-for historic lodging.

Like a quaint inn or bed and breakfast, our guesthouse offers personalized service and beautiful private rooms, but differs in that the morning meal is not provided on premises.  Our guests prefer to enjoy breakfast at one of the  fabulous eateries withing walking distance of Lionel Champlin Guest House.   We do offer coffee/tea and have common seating areas as well as a common guest refrigerator, so that no matter the hour, you can still get yourself a quick snack!

All rooms at Lionel Champlin Guest House have en suite bathrooms and are provided with complimentary linens, cotton terry bathrobes, hair dryers, &  Wi-Fi.2012-hall

The common areas on the first floor include a sun room with tables and chairs that seat up to 24 people and a large-flat screen TV with cable, a microwave, toaster, filtered cold and/or hot water for tea, and a common guest refrigerator;  a comfortable living room with a fireplace, couches and easy chairs; a breezy porch, and a dining room with a guest computer & printer and a farmer-style table for eating or game-playing.

All east-facing guest rooms have some water view toward Newport.  You will be just a short walk to water and downtown shops and restaurants

We also offer a place to keep your bicycles or kayaks.

Your hosts are knowledgeable about local area attractions and have suggestions for not-to-be-missed places.   Whether you are in Jamestown for a weekend or a fortnight, we can help you maximize your time here and enjoy the best of what Southern Rhode Island has to offer.

If you have a special requirement, please do not hesitate to ask. We are able to provide special meals for larger groups, basic bicycle support, local restaurant and attractions reservations, and more.

Please learn more about our Valley Street Weekly Residence too.  The Valley Street (full house rental with pool) amenities are a little different than the Lionel Champlin Guest House (en suite room rental) amenities.  Call us with any questions, any time. 401-423-7469
