About this listing

The space

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 recreation.There 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.
Thanks
Chip

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

It's fabulous, antique, mysterious, and warm. I feel very lucky that I had the chance to visit his fabulous house. The host has the unique artistic talent.

Chip's home is delightful, staying here was a fun experience. Chip goes above and beyond to ensure that guests have a comfortable stay. Guests have privacy but Chip is communicative and has thought to provide everything you might need. I hope I have a chance to stay here again.

In general, We loved staying Chip's place. I enjoyed every corner of it! While stay cozy, I also felt like I'm in some kind of hidden Antique store. It made my trip to RI something very different.

I had such a great stay with Chip. This is the most unique and colorful house you'll ever visit. Chip goes out of his way to make his guests feel welcome. The room was clean and beautiful and I slept like a baby the night before my half marathon. He makes a fantastic breakfast and is a great resource about what's going on in the city. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Beautiful house with so many interesting artifacts. Chip is a great host to talk to. The house is about 10 mins to Providence central by Uber offering great connection to even those without car. Chip is an excellent cook too! We love his breakfast!

Chip's house is amazing! Our room and bathroom were clean, beautiful, and welcoming. The cooper tub was so unique but quite an adventure (low water pressure made washing my hair difficult when trying to use the shower nozzle). Chip really went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcome. Small touches like water bottles, lots of towels, and travel pamphlets were well appreciated! The wonderful breakfast served in the dining room was such a great way to start our day. Chip even suggested another place to explore that became one of our favorite stops in Rhode Island. We arrived pretty late and after dark and the neighborhood made us a little nervous but once inside the house, we felt safe and secure. Overall, between breakfast and the great company we really loved our stay!

Chip's house is really nice and antiqued, the neighborhood is very safe, like the whole providence. It's easy to get the public transportation. Breakfast on the morning is delicious and awesome. Bedroom is tidy and has everything! Highly recommend!
