The SpaceThe Federalist main home dates back to 1810, and was restored in 2005. This second floor space is bright, cheery and charming...perfect for one or two guests.
Enjoy a beautiful apartment with a kitchenette and stove, cable access and a full bath.
The apartment has hardwood floors throughout the living/dining/kitchenette and the large bedroom. A tiled bathroom features soaking tub/shower.
For someone on temporary employment contract, or who is seeking temporary housing before a home purchase, special pricing and adjustments are available. Guest AccessGuests can come and go as they please through a separate entrance from the main home. Access to two private apartment units is a stairway in the entrance foyer. Parking is located on the property. Interaction with GuestsHosts live on the premises in a separate apartment. We are here to make your trip enjoyable, but not to intrude on your privacy. The NeighborhoodThis Antique home is located in a historic Union Village district of North Smithfield in Providence County. Guests have easy access to historic landmarks and places of interest for seeing New England at its best. Nearby are Federalist homes, farms, museums and mills. Less than a mile away, Wrights Dairy Farm is declared the #1 Dairy Farm in RI, and cows are anti-biotic and hormone-free! The bakery with their fresh whipped cream pastries is a wonderful experience.
Take an evening walk to the 1710 Smithfield Friends Meeting House and Cemetery. For those interested in the history of mills and the start of the Industrial Revolution in the US, the Museum of Work and Culture is in nearby Woonsocket. Slaters Mill Museum is short ride away. Slatersville, North Smithfield, is designated as a National Park.
College Hill in Providence is home to Brown University, the RI School of Design, Museums and, starting in Spring, a full schedule of the famous Water Fire events. Getting AroundWe are located on 146A, a direct route to Providence (15min), and connector to Interstate 295 to Boston (45min by auto). The T-train Station for Boston is 15 minutes away by car and offers ample parking, and is a great way to avoid the city traffic. Other Things to NoteApartments are within an older home, so it is important to be aware of the needs of others, especially noise levels. This is a fairly quiet house. We want you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. We ask that you honor our home as you would honor your own home, leaving it as you found it. Linens for bath, bed, and kitchen are provided and laundered. There is not a guest washer/dryer, but there is a laundromat nearby that offers the option of laundering your clothes for you.
