I rented Ruth's place for myself, wife, and my parents. A party of 4 to attend a med school graduation downtown Providence. I've stayed in airbnb's in many places across the USA now, and abroad as well. I've had mostly good luck staying in nice places and my reviews I think reflect that. That being said; Ruth's place is among the best I've stayed in hands down. I thought it would be good, but it was way more than good. Beautiful house, great neighborhood, fantastic host, comfy beds great shower etc. The house is very private and comfortable, everything you need and really is way better than pictures online show. It's like a 10-15min max drive to downtown. I was really impressed and thankful to Ruth. My highest recommendation for this host and her house!!

This house is perfect for a small family or two couples visiting Providence and particularly Brown University/College Hill. It is located just over 2 miles from the center of the Brown campus. Everything was clean and organized. The beds were very comfortable. Ruth was very easy to communicate with, and made the whole process very simple. I highly recommend.

All was as described by fellow airbnb ers !....spotless, beautiful home, all details taken to care for us. Great neighborhood definitely a car drive to downtown Providence...but lovely area to sleep and take a morning walk. Wish it were in summer so we could've enjoyed sweet and private back yard.

Ruth's place felt just like home. It was very spacious and the pictures do not do this place justice. It is truly a gym in Rhode Island. I highly recommend.

Everything about Ruth's home was perfect. The home has a lot of charm and character, while also very clean. Although we didn't get to meet Ruth, she seems like a fascinating woman based on her eclectic taste. She has books and artwork from all around the world. Ruth was very thorough with her house instructions, so I had no questions. She left us extra blankets and towels in case needed, and provided several soaps in the bathrooms, teas in her cupboard, etc. We felt like we were in a warm home during our brief stay. We hope to be back some time!

I am a retired professor, enjoying my freedom to travel. My house is available when I am having new adventures. My summers I return to my cabin in Minnesota to live on a small lake. I love Providence and all the wonderful history, culture and fascinating people. I enjoy that others get to know it also.
