"Newport House is a treasure in every sense of the word. The moment we walked in the door we knew we were “home,” because that is the way the Millars make one feel."
In 1716, the first theater in the U.S. opened its doors for business in Williamsburg, Virginia. About three decades later, the city of Williamsburg purchased the theater and converted it into a court building. The building once sat on what is now Colonial Williamsburg's Palace Green.
Quotes from letters:
"Stepping back in time at Newport House was a fascinating experience in a decade where history seems to be forgotten. It gives us the insight to maintain who we are and where we came from. It is nice to know you are there to assist in that discovery."
"Lovely accommodations, wonderful food, and great conversation – we had such a nice “getaway.”
"Exceptional hosts! You made our visit very memorable."
"We have only the highest compliments – the house is lovely and comfortable, and the hosts warm, interesting and helpful."
THE PINEAPPLE: THE COLONIAL SYMBOL OF HOSPITALITY
In the colonial period, Caribbean pineapples came ripe only near Christmas, and North American sea captains would take a few home with them. They would place a carved wooden pineapple on a post outside their house as a signal to their neighbors to come and try a bite while it was still ripe. Newport House B&B has such a carved pineapple on a post outside its front door year round.
