About this listing

This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Providence. It has a separate, private entrance to a gorgeous and just-renovated sub-level bedroom and bathroom in a beautiful, safe, historic, well-located house, 0.8 mile/15-min walk from Brown/RISD, in the heart of Wayland Square, on the East Side of Providence, RI—the best neighborhood in the city. 13 restaurants, three coffee houses, shops, drug store, bike path, public transportation, Zip car rental . . . just 2 blocks away!

Don't settle for dirty Airbnb's when you can have better than hotel-quality right here. Owners live on the premises and are available when needed. We look forward to your visit!
Please note: there is one cat in the house, although your room is private and closed off from the main house and the cat does not have access to your room.
The apartment is pretty self sufficient, although I am happy to provide whatever else you may need. While there is no kitchen, there is a microwave, refrigerator, electric water boiler, and Keurig coffee maker
Interaction with guests
I try to keep interaction to a minimum, for your benefit, of course, so that you feel comfortable and private, and so that you have time to explore the city. I am happy, however, to provide any information on the city and its resources that I can offer, and I love interacting with guests if they would like to

Originally from New Jersey, but Providence has been my wonderful home for 10 years. I moved here to take a position as a professor at a local university, and I never plan to leave! Since my wife, Phoebe, and I know Providence and Rhode Island very well, we would be happy to introduce you to the many wonderful things this city and state have to offer, including exceptional restaurants, exciting entertainment, beautiful beaches, state parks, and historic tourist attractions.
