We stayed one night while on an East Coast college tour. Room was so spacious! Beautiful fireplace, huge four-poster bed, super soft linens. And nothing better than a jar of warm cookies when coming in for the night! Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed my stay at this charming victorian style B&B and the hot complete breakfast (waffles with sausage on morning we were there) added to our stay. The rate was very economical for us, about $170 for the room with 2 twin beds, but this may have been discounted because it was the last available room and booked about... More

I stayed at the Christopher Dodge House in early June during a conference. The whole house seemed empty, the receptionist was found; she was awkwardly responding to my questions, avoiding discussion. In the evening the whole house was unattended, at least I did not find anybody. In the morning the same was repeated, a cook in the kitchen (the only... More

Dear XCAWD (sorry, I don't know how to address you . . .) My apologies that you could not find answers to questions you may have had.

We stayed here for one night to attend a graduation and would definitely return in the future. The hospitality is second to none. Friendly and warm staff, the most comfortable beds and cookies! Limited parking on site but they also have additional parking spaces in a very nearby lot.

First time in Providence and found this place on line. Limited parking that they don't tell you about. They have more rooms than parking spaces so unless you are an early bird you will have to park in their overflow and walk a couple blocks. Very small rooms. We were supposed to have a king bed which we did by... More

Dear John D., Our inn is on the National Historic Register (Circa 1858) and a former whaling captain's home before it's transformation. It was not possible to find much additional space but along with sufficient guest parking, we were blessed with additional parking right around the corner to accommodate our occasional overflow. There is a sign right on the office... More

We came here for a quick getaway from NYC. It really was the perfect escape. The check in process was quick and seamless and the bed was big and cozy and very New England. Breakfast was excellent and it was super close to everything you could want to do in town.
