Our kitchen is fully stocked and a joy to cook in. We have a large dining room table for sitting down to a proper dinner. The sprawling garden at back offers a large table patio, fire pit, and various other strolling and sitting spots. Brown/RISD less then a mile.

This space is incredibly welcoming, comfortable, and totally unique. My friends and I were unfortunately in town to attend a funeral, and Johanne made the experience as smooth as possible during an otherwise sad and stressful time. The beds are super comfortable, the place is sto…

This apartment is not a 55+ friendly one. The entrance is to the back of the house and it is overgrown with vegetation. The path is part ground and grass and not easy to roll luggage. The stairway to the apartment is an old service stairway, steep and narrow. The amenities call …

Response from Johanne:
Bruce, thank you for the heads up about the 6 foot path from the driveway to the back stairs. I have weeded it and placed a thick layer of fresh mulch on the path. : ) Our new microwave arrived yesterday and was installed in the kitchen. I’m sorry that not having one caused you inconvenience, Airbnb can be hard on appliances and you arrived in the gap between microwaves. Our bedding is not ”on the floor". All three of our beds are on beautiful, finely crafted wooden platforms that are raised above the floor. My mother never had a problem sleeping on them, in fact she built them with her own two hands when she was in her late 60s. Yea, I’m proud of her! My mother lived in that apartment well into her 70s and never had a problem with the stairs either. I believe what you mean is that it is not suitable for people with mobility issues like your wife. I agree. It is for that reason that we explicitly write in our description that the apartment is on the 3rd floor of an 1875 Victorian house and guests MUST acknowledge their ability to climb stairs. I felt terrible for your poor wife when I realized that she has titanium in her ankles and climbing stairs causes her pain. She is a lovely and friendly lady. Next time you book a space you should read the description or you might put your wife in a similar situation again.

Unique and fun place. Make sure you're able to climb stairs to access the apartment :) is super worth it! Johanne was a really accommodating host - left us cookies and even make up wipes after she heard we were there for a wedding.

This is a very special place : thoughtfully and lovingly appointed, with plenty of interesting things to read and look at, and a comfortable feel. Everything is very clean and the kitchen and bathroom are well supplied. I can't recommend this too highly.

After high school I lived for three years on a socialist kibbutz in Israel and came home with the best souvenir: my husband of almost 30 years. We have two awesome adult(ish) kids. We bought our Victorian house 15 years ago and renovated it top to bottom. My favorite part of o…
