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. Guest AccessThe apartment is pretty self sufficient, although I am happy to provide whatever else you may need. Interaction with GuestsI 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 The NeighborhoodWayland Square is the best, most beautiful, and safest neighborhood in Providence, on the East Side, within one mile of Brown University and RISD, and one block to the famous Blackstone Boulevard and Seekonk River.
