Perfect for your next family visit, business trip, college tours, reunions, graduation, or weekend getaway!

This meticulous 1840s 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in College Hill features a gorgeous professional kitchen ideal for entertaining with all Viking appliances, dishwasher, central air conditioning, comfortable mattresses, and a serenely updated master bath. Relax over a nice meal with friends and family while enjoying a quiet evening in one of the most wonderful neighborhoods to walk in Providence

Stand atop nearly 200-year old wide-plank hardwood floors with timber framed beams visible in select rooms of this beautifully maintained historic gem. Naturally well-lit with sunny windows and granite countertops, it’s also easy to step outside and take in the view from the lovely private backyard with Brazilian hardwood patio, string lights, and unbelievable plumbed-in grill. Just blocks from Brown campus, Benefit Street, RISD, and Wickenden street: explore countless restaurants, walk to the ocean at India Point Park, or take an easy stroll over to downtown. Recently refinished with great mid-century hardwood furniture and original artworks. Includes convenient parking for up to 2 cars

We are in a location ideally suited for college visits, not just in Providence, but throughout the Northeast. In addition to being easy walking distance of Brown, RISD, Johnson and Wales, and a very short drive from Providence College or Rhode Island College. More and more people are realizing how convenient it is to stay a few days and skip the hassle of checking into a new place each night. Why not base out of an relaxing city like Providence and take the train in to visit Yale, or skip Boston traffic by way of the easy one-hour commuter rail to any of the colleges in Boston. We're just a short day trip to Mount Holyoke, Amherst, Smith, Wooster, and Holy Cross. Geographically, this is a great location to consider for any of those visits!

Guests will have access to the entire house except for one small room and a closet. There is a washing machine and dryer just downstairs in the basement. You'll also be welcome to make yourself at home in the private yard and patio, which is wonderful for grilling and relaxing on warm evenings
