  • Off Season Rates

    In the off season, I usually close down. So many of my repeat guests have asked me to stay open so they can enjoy Newport in the slower months, that I came up with a money saving plan to make coming to Newport and staying at Murray House much more fun.

    My rooms have their own outside private entrances (and mini-kitchen essentials, so you can do your own light breakfast thing). You can also come and go as you please. You can get a really great deal at Murray House in the off season, (two night minimum). (The same room has an average summer rate of $201.00).

    The low rates: October $129, November $119, December $109, January 5 to April 1 $99.
