What it's like

Built in 1858, this impressive 4-story Italianate mansion was later transformed into a charming 14-room bed and breakfast in 2003. Despite the conversion, the owners have gone to great lengths to preserve the mansion's historical significance, evident in details such as original wide-plank flooring and the building's original staircases that remain intact.

Independent spirit

Providence's hidden gem.

Small touches

Each of the 14 welcoming guest rooms offers private bathrooms with premium bath products and plush towels, individual heat controls, and complimentary WiFi. Most rooms also boast a gas fireplace or stove. And to stay true to the mansion's past, the lodgings have been adorned with antique reproduction furniture, so your stay will feel almost like you've stepped back into another era.

Eat and drink

Start your day off right with a hot-plated breakfast prepared fresh in-house every morning, or take your pick from the continental buffet, which offers homemade pastries, yogurt parfait with homemade granola, locally roasted coffee, and much more! You can also drop by the Common Room any time of day for complimentary refreshments, including infused water, tea, coffee, and even bottles of Yacht Club Soda, the official soda of Rhode Island.
