Leave your car in the off-street gated parking and walk downtown in minutes. The room and bath are on a floor of their own...so privacy prevails. Comfy bed has fabulous linens. Enjoy mini fridge, wifi, bose sound dock, and may other amenities.
You have a private entrance up to your third floor accommodations.
The way up is a bit unfinished, but we promise it won't infringe on your enjoyment of a sweet little set-up.
The space is well-suited for a pleasant stay. You'll have a real comfy double bed with down comforter, and twin bed (sleep up to 3) There are black-out curtains for those of you who need pitch black for sleeping.
We are set in an urban oasis on the edge of downtown.
Our house sits on 3 city lots that have more than 40 trees including apple and walnut trees.
It is only a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the middle downtown and some of the best restaurants Providence has to offer.
The house has off-street gated parking so no need to worry about an overnight parking permit or ticket.
During your stay you are welcome to enjoy our backyard and courtyard. It is a wonderful place to have your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
A friendly dog and a new puppy live on the premises but neither have any access to your private area.

About the area:
It is a true urban oasis situated in a 80%residential 20%commercial zone. The streets in the area are mainly one-way which cuts way down on traffic flow.
The area in general is mixed culturally, racially, and socio-economically. We have many artists, in fact the Thompson Twins used to live across the street. We also have many doctors, professionals, professors, and like most cities we have a homeless population that is served by a local soup kitchen and shelter on the edge of downtown. For many urban dwellers this will be a recognizable mix of people, but for those coming from less diverse areas you may prefer to drive around rather than walk. I have lived in this neighborhood for 15 years and know that, while it can be colorful at times, it is also safe.

We had a wonderful and relaxing visit. Karen's place was welcoming, clean, quiet and very charming. We were happy to have been able to chat with Karen & Cindy before we left. Both friendly/pleasant.
We really enjoyed our stay in Karen's room. The room is so lovely and they've added such nice little touches around the space to make guests feel comfortable and enjoy their stay - like coffee, tea, spring water and a fridge. The check in process was super streamlined and Karen and Cindy made everything easy. The whole experience was great!
I felt at home and at peace in Karen's place! I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience in Providence. I hope to return soon!
My partner and I loved our one-night stay at Karen's and never wanted to leave that bed (or bathtub!). Having previously lived in Providence for five years and back in town for a short visit, I'd been looking for a cozy space to crash after dinner at North (my favorite local restaurant). Couldn't have been more pleased with the place. Karen and Cynthia were lovely to communicate with, access was easy, and the room and bathroom were impeccably decorated and maintained. It hurt a little to have to leave!
Cynthia was super friendly when I arrived. The room was just as charming and clean as it looked in the pictures with all sorts of thouhtful touches. The sheets were super soft and the down comforter was cozy. The deep, claw foot bath tub was the best! The neighborhood felt safe and was a 15-20 minute walk to downtown.
We loved Karen's place in Providence! Bedroom and bathroom were beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The coffee provided was great, and the tea and hot chocolate were a nice touch. It's very quiet in the room, which was good for sleeping. The location of the house is very central and we were able to walk to dinner and breakfast.
We saw Karen when we checked in and she showed us to the room. She also notified us that the room was ready early and we could check in before 3 pm if we wanted, which was thoughtful.
Overall we were very pleased and would stay here again!
Karen was an incredible host and her space was absolutely perfect. Karen went above and beyond we arrived on a day of a snowstorm Karen let us check in a little early she also went above and beyond with the snow removal around my car and on my car. If we come to providence again we will def try to stay here again!
