"Pottery Barn" style 3-bedroom home is open and light-filled with wonderful gathering spaces...including a treehouse! Reviewed as the "Nordstrom of Airbnb", minutes from Brown University, RISD, and WaterFire. 45 minutes to Newport and Boston. In the Hope Street Village area on the East Side, walking distance to restaurants and cafés, one block from park with Farmers' Market and craft fair on weekends. Perfect home base for family celebrations, get-away weekends, college visits and more!

The space

A lovely, fun-filled home located in the best area of the East Side of Providence, RI! Pretty front porch (with rocking chairs and porch swing) opens up to spacious living/dining/kitchen area on the first floor. Sunroom with gas fireplace and 1/2 bath features sliding doors to a large deck and fenced backyard with treehouse and swing, fire pit, and beautiful gardens. Three bedrooms and full bath located on the second floor and a fourth bedroom space with 1/2 bath in the lower level. WiFi, linens and towels (plus bathrobes and toiletries), Keurig machine (including coffee) and welcome basket with baked goods, milk and cream, juice and fruit is included.

Guest access

Entire house and yard spaces (we are not living in the home, but it is completely furnished and decorated.) An office area (with a separate and private entrance) will not be accessible, and may be occupied by the owner at limited times during weekdays. There is room for 2 (potentially 3) cars in the driveway.

Interaction with guests

I will greet all guests when possible and be available by phone or text at any time (we live 15 minutes away). We have a keyless entry system and the code changes with each guest (and is set to a code of the guest's choosing).

Other things to note

We have loved this house so much and it has been the stage for many celebrations. I am a graphic designer and advertising consultant for colleges and universities. My studio is located in an annex to the home, with a private and secure entrance. We recently moved our family for school opportunities, but are thrilled to now have the chance to share this happy home on AirBNB.

This home, and hostess Kristen, truly are gems and honestly I am only letting the secret out since I've already booked my anticipated visits to the area through 2020! Our family, including our pup Lilo and grandmother, had an absolutely delightful stay. Kristen welcomed us upon arrival, had the refrigerator stocked with essentials and special breakfast treats (for Lilo too), and gave us the full house orientation tour. The home is perfect for visits with our youngest daughter - a student at nearby Brown. It was easy to get back and forth to campus; wonderful to walk around the dog friendly neighborhood to nearby restaurants, parks, and shops; and great relaxing within the home space, deck and yard. The home space was very well laid out and appointed to maximize the space and provide areas for quite time as well as group gatherings. We had all the comforts of home and then some. Everyone was very comfortable and enjoyed being able to relax and catch up. The gas fireplace was an especially nice feature with the brisk fall weather.

Lydia, thank you so much for this amazing review! Hosting families like yours is what makes this so fun and worthwhile. So happy to become your home away from home in Providence for years to come!

Everything was fantastic. Our only regret was not having more time to enjoy the house and wish we went to the park Saturday morning for the Farmers Market. Communication with the host was great as well. Charming place all around. Felt like a fairytale.

Response from Kristen:
Thank you, Dawn! You had a lot to cover in a short amount of time, you will just have to come back! Tell the girls I loved their note in the guest book and I'm so glad you all enjoyed the house and the yard. Until next time!

Kristen is truly the hostess with the mostest! She was so responsive and helpful and left us delicious pastries from the amazing local bakery, plus milk, juice and coffee to get us settled in. She even provides toiletries and shampoo. Everything was spotless and comfortable and we loved our stay. The location is also perfect, 1 block from Hope street with cute stores, restaurants, and of course the amazing local bakery, Seven Stars. Can't recommend highly enough.

This is a lovely house. Our group spent a couple of nights here for a family wedding and it was the perfect place for us. Kristen couldn't have been more attentive and provided basics (coffee, milk, OJ and muffins) when we arrived. This is a great place for visitors to Brown, RISD and beyond in the Providence area.

Response from Kristen:
Thanks, Tom! So happy to have hosted your family for this special occasion! Come back anytime!

Although all the pictures were accurate, there is something about seeing this property in purpose that goes above and beyond the beauty in the pictures. This was our first time using Air BnB and Kristen set the bar very high. The house was beautiful, the location was extremely convenient to lots of our stops in RI, and we felt right at home. Can't wait to come back next year!

Response from Kristen:
Thank you, Christine! We loved being the "home base" for your family gathering and look forward to making this a tradition!
