We stayed here for three nights in August. We absolutely loved it! It was my wife and I with our 2-year old. The accommodations are lovely, the breakfast was lovelier, and the staff were even better! We regret that we only spent three nights. You shouldn't hesitate about booking here.

Had a great experience. The home was beautiful and very well maintained. The historical preservation and experience is worth the stay and there was no sacrifice of modern amenities. The staff was fantastic and made our stay special. I saw other historical bed and breakfasts in the area and this was by far one of the best. Thank you.

Fabulous stay at the Christopher Dodge Inn. The room was very nice, very clean, very quiet. Check in was super easy, on-site parking included…and communication throughout my stay was excellent. Easy walking access to the city and rivers. Will definitely stay here again on any return visits to Providence!

I stayed 5 nights , a beautiful place ! Every morning we had a delicious breakfast. The Inn is full of sweet touches; flowers, bowls of candy, great bed linens, and towels. The staff were very polite and kind. I would definitely return.
