About the property

Enjoy high ceilings, full kitchen, two bedrooms in a restored 1876 house in historic neighborhood of Providence. The private apartment occupies the entire second floor of the house with two bedrooms, living room, one bathroom, and full kitchen.

Amazing Hospitality

Helen provided a charming home and greeted us with warm hospitality. The home is immaculately clean. My daughter and I enjoyed a relaxing time there.

A Perfect Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I lived in downtown Providence for many years and was coming back for a visit. I wanted a place that was going to feel like a home because we were going to have many people stopping by...and wow, did we end up with the perfect place. Not only is the house itself and yard gorgeous, but the actual apartment is the entire upstairs! So we had plenty of space and everything was clean and bright and very quiet! Helen was also amazing... very helpful with a request here and there and so happy to share her outdoor space. Plus it a short walk to downtown Providence, so you do not even have to worry about parking when heading out to dinner! We will definitely stay here on our next visit home!

Lovely and cozy apartment nestled in a shady, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I generally do not write reviews but felt compelled to for this gem of a place in the west end of Providence. The recently renovated and well-appointed apartment is bright, comfortable, and nicely decorated. There is access via back-stairs to an inviting patio, expertly landscaped under the shade of huge, leafy trees. Our host, Helen, was a delight and her care and love for the property is evident everywhere. Highly recommended for a private escape in Providence.

Delightful space, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a fresh, airy space, quiet and comfortable. It was much more convenient for our activities than I expected- very easy to get downtown and out to our friend's house in Cranston. Helen was pleasant to talk with and easy to contact. We would be pleased to stay again!

Nicely appointed, sunny spot

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Cottage was ideal for our needs! It provided plenty of room, was conveniently located, and was a nice, restful place to be. Great care was taken in remodeling and modernizing the bedrooms, kitchen, living area, and bathroom, and the quality shows. We would recommend this for those visiting Brown or the other colleges in the area or for people who want to explore Providence.
