Newport, KY, Christopher's Bed and Breakfast

Sanctuary For A Night

Looking for a heavenly night's rest? Revive your spirits at Christopher's Bed and Breakfast, where you're surrounded by stained-glass windows, Gothic arches and wide, natural wood staircases dating from 1889, when the building was the Bellevue, Kentucky, Christian Church. The name is appropriate, as Christopher is the patron saint of travelers.

Located a half mile from the Ohio River border with Cincinnati, the B&B is run by Brenda Guidugli (above), who bought the white neo-Gothic building in 1997. She divided the sanctuary into three guest rooms, retaining the original stained glass and the hardwood floors. Guests can enjoy a continental breakfast in a parlor adorned with two large stained-glass portraits of Jesus.
