    Delightfully Offbeat.

    Maybe it is because Newport gives us so much—between the sea and the history—or maybe it is the crazy-talented group of individuals at the city's helm, but Wayfinder is committed to the community. From the luxury bath amenities handcrafted by Shore Soap, to the local art that adorn the walls of our hotel, we are dedicated to being part of this town. That's what happens when you lock arms with talented and passionate people who care—seriously care—about craft and community.
