All of the hotels in Providence were sold out during Parents' weekend.

Because I prefer to stay downtown, as apposed to driving in each day, I checked out HomeAway.

After reviewing the photos and reading the reviews from previous guests, I decided to give Blue Cottage a try.

It is a little slice of perfection! From the moment you open the door you are flooded with a clean fresh scent and sunlight pours through the beautiful windows.

I am supper fussy when it comes to cleanliness whenever I stay overnight. Blue cottage is immaculate with special attention to details.

The neighborhood is very quiet unlike a hotel on a busy street.

Thank you Helen, For being the perfect hostess. You were always available if I needed anything.

We visited a few of your restaurant suggestions you gave us and they were wonderful. Thank you for the list.

My neighbors were delighted with the Tiramisu I brought them from Pastiche!

Thank you for making my trip to providence a special one this time.

I will see you again!

A wonderful apartment tastefully furnished. Within 5 minute drive of town centre, 1 hour drive to Boston. Helen was welcoming and informative. Only stayed for 3 nights but would love the opportunity to further explore the area, would not hesitate to re book.

This little gem is in an up and coming neighborhood filled with fun and funky bakeries and eateries.

Helen's smart architectural eye makes this a beautiful home away from home. If you like clean lines, classic elegance and a modern cottage feel, I highly recommend this place. Helen had treats on the counter from Whole Foods for our breakfast, excellent coffee from Peet's Coffee and organic half and half stocked in the refrigerator. This level of detail doesn't go unnoticed. It was a pleasure to stay here and I will stay again.

Beautiful historic home renovated into two condos with granite countertops & ss appl

  • 5 of 5

I am a frequent client of HomeAway. Rented many places in many parts of the world. This home is the best one I have ever stayed in. Absolutely beautiful. It's an 1800 historic building restored into two condos with the owner living below. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, comfortable beds and beautiful bathroom all with a designer's touch. The condo was immaculate. When we arrived. our host had stocked the fridge with 4 different kinds of coffee, sugar, milk, granola and a big bowl of fresh cherries. She also had condiments available so that we wouldn't have to buy them. On street parking easily available as well as parking space in owner's driveway. Nice Italian restaurant and coffe house within walking distance. We didn't want to leave!! Photos can not do it justice. Extraordinary value. I highly recommend this property.
