  • unprofessional and a nightmare to deal with

    by

    The Pearl's fine and in a great location, so I've got nothing against it. Ray, however is a nightmare to deal with. Unless there is something in it for him, he will do nothing for you. He won't even return calls or acknowledge emails after you have paid. Just a
    maddening experience. I rented out the entire place for five days, paying a large amount of money, and was treated like crap in return.

    No answering the phone. No returned calls, emails, nothing. If he ever accidently answered his phone, he was always in a meeting, but would call me right back. Not once did he. All I ever got was BS excuses. Once he answered his cell phone and told me "Ray's not there". Once I called the main number, asked for Ray, heard him say "hello", then heard him and the other guy murmuring in the background for a bit before I was put on hold. They then told me his truck wasn't in the driveway, but he'd call me back, which he did not. Through email, I kept asking him for the details of what I had rented, but couldn't even get that.

    You would think that a man his age who runs his own business would treat a paying customer better than this. I still have business with him, but three weeks later and the treatment is the same.

    The Pearl is ok, but life is too short to risk dealing with this sort of thing and there are tons of great places in Newport, so I say try them. Try the Black Duck across the street. When Ray wasn't answering, I called them to make sure the Pearl was still in business. They were super nice and professional. Wish we had gone
    there in the first place.

Travel Tips for Newport

Vernon Court, an adaptation of...

by cobrioc

Vernon Court, an adaptation of a 17th century French Chateau, was designed and biuilt in 1898 for Mrs. Richard van Neast Gambrill of Peapack, New Jersey.
Occupying one full block on historic Bellevue Avenue, Vernon Court was widely heralded as the most spectacular mansion of its kind in America.
It was compared with the White House, the Biltmore, The Breakers, and several other mansions as one of the greatest mansion in America.
Vernon Court stands today as an incredible architectural monument and clearly remains one of the most significant structures in the country.
Newport has an unparalleled architectural heritage.
These illustrious venues of the greatest of the 'Gilded Age' mansions, with striking architectural
monuments and national historic sites abounding, are preserved for ever more.
Vernon Court lies little more than an hour south of Boston in Newport, and is but three hours from New
York City. Vernon Court was designed by the noted architects John Merven Carrere and Thomas Hastings of Carre's &Hastings who designed the New York Public Library, the US Senate Office Building in Washington, DC and other nationally recognized architectural monuments.
Jules Allard et ss fils of Paris, the world's most noted interior designers at the turn of the Twetieth Century, were responsible for the interiors of Vernon Court.
The Marble Hall, Petit Salon and Ballroom were all modeled after the Marie Antoinette suites at at he Palace of Versailes. Allard completed many other mansion interioir in Newport such as The Elms, Rosecliff, The Breakers and Marble House.
Vernon Court is on three-acress with Stoneacre comprising another three acres. Stoneacre is the last open space on Bellevue Avenue, a grand promenade of the Gilded Age known as the most elegant street in America.

Jamestown Bridge

by cjg1

On April 18, 2006 they demolished the old bridge on the right side of this pic. It has always been a point of attraction as I bring yet another VTer to Newport.

It was quite strange when I first returned to Newport after the demolition as the view had forever changed. The old bridge was on the seaward side, your right as driving to Newport.

Enjoying our Sunday Brunch

by Gypsystravels about Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant

We've been here a few times and during this particular trip, we had lunch one day and then Sunday Brunch the following morning as it was pouring outside and we weren't in the mood to go looking for another place to eat.

The restaurant is quite large and gets very crowded. It has a really nice pubby atmosphere with all the walls filled with all sorts of photos, many of which are sports related. There is a front dinning area as soon as you enter the restaurant, then the bar and to the side another dinning area with a large truck in the middle of the dinning area. It is here where they have the salad bar. If you past the bar you continue to walk with a small area with booths on each side, and at the end of that area is a larger dinning area, with a large bison head mounted on the wall.

They have a pretty large selection of items for brunch/lunch and dinner. The wait staff is quite nice and the service was excellent. You get free drink refills as well (only non-alcoholoic).

You may need to wait a bit as this restaurant gets quite crowded, but the food and service is worth the wait. For brunch I had the French Toast which came with yummy authentic syrup and a side of assorted fruit, I also orderd a side of bacon. Ferni had the steak and scrambled eggs, with fries and a side of fruit as well as toast. Ferni said his meal was good as the steak was cooked to his liking, my French toast was excellent and way too much, so I left half of my breakfast.

For lunch I had the calamari which was excellent, Ferni had chicken fingers which he said were very good.

We will definitely come back to this restaurant during our next visit.

Visit the Yacht Restoration School

by lionreb

A group of antique car enthusiasts took a trip together and stopped at the Yacht Restoration School to see how those other restorationists do things.. It is worth the visit and it is right downtown off of Thames Street near the water. There is a large collection of historic yachts for the students to work on and many Beetle Cats in the process of Restoration..No charge;donations accepted.
