An absolute MUST

  • 5 out of 5
We decided on a long weekend in Newport and couldn't be happier with our decision to stay on the Ocean Romance. We were looking for something a little different and it greatly exceeded our expectations. Jean & Dave were excellent hosts and the breakfast Jean cooked every morning was unreal! You really can't beat waking up, sitting on the back of the boat with a nice cup of coffee, beautiful weather, watching the sun come up and the boats go out. Without a doubt will be back to visit!

A great way to celebrate a special occasion

  • 5 out of 5
Our party had a wonderful time aboard Ocean Romance. We came together to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary. We were warmly greeted, our accomodations were clean and attractive.....and the breakfast was to die for! During the day we took in the Mansions and at night we enjoyed cocktails on deck before dining at the Black Pearl. Great get a way....highly recommend it.

A bed and breakfast on a yacht. . .what a great concept. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the two days we spent on the Ocean Romance. Dave and Jean were the perfect hosts, very warm and inviting. Breakfast each morning was fabulous. . .especially the homemade scones.

This should be available everywhere

Dave & Jean were excellent hosts. I believe the amenities said "Continental Breakfast" I would call it gourmet cooking served continental style. Room was great, experience was wonderful, and for those who think they might get seasick, you wont. The only caution I have is, you must be steady on a ladder to enter from the dock. Everything you would expect and more.
