My place is close to Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, nightlife, downtown, parks, & theaters. You'll have the entire 3rd floor guest suite, which has its own private entrance and staircase but no kitchen. You’ll love the cozy historic character, the light, and the comfy bed. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families with kids. Please note, there are two very steep staircases, and is not ADA accessible.

The space

The Samuel Pearson house, built in 1806, is a stately brick home typical of early 19th century Providence architecture. The 3rd floor, which has its own private side entrance and stairwell, is beautifully finished as a guest suite with two bedrooms and a spacious light-filled bathroom. Wide-plank floors, original moldings, and pitched ceilings create cozy historic charm, while skylights and dormer windows provide lots of light. Just a short walk from RISD, Brown, historic Benefit street, shopping, bars, & restaurants, this an ideal spot to experience historic New England architecture while exploring everything Providence has to offer.

Guest access

Guests will have the entire 3rd floor. There is no kitchen, but there is a coffee and tea station, and mini-fridge.

Interaction with guests

We live on the second floor, and are readily available via phone or text, and if any urgent issues arise, a knock on our door!

Other things to note

There are two very steep and narrow staircases up to the 3rd floor, this space is not ADA accessible.

Hospitality is its full potential is what we experienced this past weekend. This place is better than Bed and Breakfast, better than a hotel. Think of discret hosts. Think of a romantic and cozy getaway on the top floor of a historical home decorated by someone with fine taste. Think of taking of shower under a skyroof and side windows opened to a beautiful garden. Think confortable bed dressed in gorgeous linens. Emily went as far as feeling the refrigerator with yogurt and water bottles. This has been one of the best airbnb rooms I have stayed in around the world. Thank you, Emily, for such a great experience! Your studio was just beautiful!

Emily's place is exactly as advertised and more! There is ample room in the bedrooms to relax on the comfy wicker couch and chair, a mini fridge, coffee maker and hot water pot. Emily also provides shampoo, conditioner and body wash in a dispenser in the shower for your convenience. It was a lovely place to stay only minutes from Keeney Quad and the bustling Thayer Street District. Thanks so much for hosting us!

A great location on college hill within walking distance to restaurants downtown. Emily is a terrific host. The house is very clean and nicely decorated. We would highly recommend this AirBB for a wonderful stay in Providence.

A charming place to stay while visiting Providence. Appreciated the cozy atmosphere and amenities. Great location for a weekend visit to RISD or Brown, close, walkable, authentic neighborhood.

We had a fabulous trip. The suite was comfortable and very clean. The only thing I would tell travelers is that the stairs are very, very steep. This was not too much of a problem for us but could be a problem for older people.

Emily clearly cares about and enjoys her role as an AirBnB host, evidenced by her thorough list of recommendations and prompt response to my texts. It was just two of us staying over the weekend, but her house could easily fit a family of four.

I'm an artist and teacher enjoying life with my husband and our 3 dogs. Originally from New Jersey, I've also enjoyed living in Virginia, California, and now Rhode Island. When we aren't traveling, I enjoy working on our 1806 historic home. I love my home, and my city, and I love sharing it with people from all over the world!
