“A home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were recommended by Marriot because they were all booked during the big blizzard. Came to the B&B and felt right at home. The staff treated us like family and the beds were even better than home! Clean rooms and a lovely JWU chef created a scrumptious homemade breakfast. The owner did a lot of wonderful renovation but still kept the 19th century feel with the right 21st amenities such as free wifi and business center. Most defiantly will be returning before the power goes out!

My wife and I spent a nice summer evening in this beautiful old house in the heart of Providence. Though very close to downtown, it was not quite within walking distance. We stayed in a room on the top floor (can't remember the name). It was lovely -- nice antiques and comfortable king bed with nice bedding. The breakfast the following morning was very good and served in a lovely dining room. The innkeeper greeted us upon arrival and gave us good suggestions for where to eat and what to do. The common areas were lovely and there were several nice spots to sit outside and read the paper. Our only hesitation in giving this 5 stars is that our room had some highway noise throughout the night. We would stay here again.

We spent a delightful pre-Christmas weeend here. The Inn was festively decorated, the staff was courteous and efficient. Our room had a delightfully BIG, high bed with its own steps! Breakfast was artfully prepared by a graduate of Providence's Johnson and Wales culinary school who was also a very charming woman. Our stay was a joy and we'd gladly return if in Providence again. We were given a pass to the nearby fitness center but didn't get to it.

We stayed at the Christoher Dodge house for a quick trip during Christmas week. What a beautiful place. The staff made us feel very welcome and proudly showed us around the house. The house and room are well appointed and feature historically accurate furnishings and decor. We enjoyed the breakfast. . . and also the free cookies. This certainly beats staying at a hotel!

My husband and I just spent 4 nights at the beautiful Christopher Dodge House. Our room was large and very comfortable with a gas burning fireplace which added to the warm and homey atmosophere. We looked forward to breakfast every morning and couldn't wait to find out what Alynne had in store for us. She never disappointed. My favorite was the Finnish pancake with fresh fruit. We've stayed at B&B's all over the country and in Europe and this is by far one of the best. We highly recommend the Christopher Dodge House.

Room Tip: Room #5 was very quiet.

Spent two nights there recently. The staff were very attentive to our needs. The building was beautiful inside and provided avery warm feeling. The dining and common areas were very well appointed. I would reccomend the Dodge House very highly.

I just spent the weekend in Providence and I have to say that staying at this B & B helped to make it a great weekend. While the location is slightly out of the way - it is worth it. The house decor, food and hopspitality was fantastic. I have stayed at many B & Bs throughout the world and this is one of the better ones I have stayed at in a long time. My room was great - simply decorated, yet had all of the amenities one needed and then some. Alynne's breakfast was fantastic. I want that recipe.
