About This Listing
I have a bedroom available in my home here in Providence.Built by the president of Gorham Silver Company in 1870,It is still pretty much intact as I am only the third owner since it was built. I am located near downtown on the west side ,near bus lines ,highways and schoolsThis bedroom is upholstered in green silk more and decorated with Japanese woodblock prints.There's a four poster bed and definitely has a traditional feel to it..From the Morris wallpaper to the Tiffany lamps and stained glass windows and doors it's all here.This would be ideal for the traveler on business or (email hidden)ere is parking,and ample grounds including a rose garden and deck. There is also a Steinway model B in excellant condition in the living room available for use.Truly unique.You simply are not going to find anything like this in Providence.I am located a half block from a bus stop that will take you directly downtown.Please note I now charge if there is more than one guest.This is simply because of the price of food. Please check out my photos. Available daily ,weekly or long term.Also please note that I have two other lisitngs on airbnb in the same house.I have another room available on the first floor and a one bedroom apartment.I have had guest who were not aware of this.
This is a pretty low key home.Live and let live.I do expect people to respect the other people living in the house as there are also apartments that are rented out long term.I do make breakfast in the morning and it is helpful to let me knowv in advance what time you want it .I usually am out by 9:30 so please let me know in advance if you want breakfast later than that.I can also have breakfast ready by 6:30..If you are staying long term sheets are changed twice a week and there are plenty of towels just ask.I'm pretty flexible about check out time but let me know in advance if you are going to be later than 1:00.usually it's no problem unless someone else is coming in
This is a wonderful place to stay in Providence! Chip made my fiancee and I feel very welcome, very comfortable, and very taken care of. I would recommend this spot to family and friends, and certainly to anyone looking for an interesting and fun experience through airbnb. Thank you so much, Chip!
What an amazing experience! I had really high hopes from the photos, and this place and host still exceeded my expectations. Chip creates "experiences" in each room--fantastic color combinations, unique antiques, clever accents, etc. I LOVED the uber-deep copper bathtub and rich, vibrant tiling in the bathroom. I spent time reading outdoors as well--great sitting chair with pink petals floating down from the tree above. Chip has a lovely cat-- a real added treat for visitors. (There was no cat hair in any of the rooms, so if you're not a pet person, you needn't be impacted.) But if you ARE a cat person, she's a total delight! In the morning, Chip prepared a gourmet breakfast, with 6 dishes offered. We ate in a room with the most beautiful crystal chandelier--on china and silverware, with linen napkins. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have visited with Chip. He is a gifted artist, very well-traveled, and has fabulously entertaining stories to share. Chip also had great recommendations for area restaurants...which all looked great. I'd love to come back and visit some of the other places he recommended! He has several other properties, and I'd love to stay in each! Perfect setting for a whimsical, reflective sojourn, with the friendliest and most interesting host! I've stayed in B & B's my whole life, including another B & B in Newport the night before. I've *never* had it this good...and the price can't be beat. Give yourself the gift of a visit here!
Chip had a beautiful home. He was also super sweet and made delicious breakfast. His cat, Alice, was a sweetheart!
Chip is very knowledgeable about the area and open to conversation. The house is amazing and breakfast was a special treat!
We had a blast at Chip's place! The room was cozy and the decor was a perfect fit to our weekend away in New England. Chip is also a fantastic cook.
