From a great location near a terrific part of Providence called Wayland Square and within walking distance of Brown and RISD, this is a perfect clean quiet and well located oasis in Providence. We come at least once a year and it's always up to snuff with the little details that make a great stay. Annie the inn keeper is... More

Our stay at Annie Brownell House felt like home from home. It is in a wonderful convenient location and our room was very clean and the bed sumptuous. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and varied. Annie the proprietor was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We chose this B&B because of its affordability and proximity to Brown. When we arrived we Annie, the proprietor told us that her staff quit and she was training someone new so our room was not ready. We left and returned 3 hours later to find that the beds were still unmade. We were then asked to wait in the... More

I stayed here for 6 nights and was very comfortable. The B&B is in an excellent location on a lovely street, within easy walking distance to Brown. The home itself is beautiful, typical New England in style with lovely antiques and many books. My room was lovely, nicely decorated, bed very comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Annie was welcoming, gracious, helpful,... More

I stayed here for a weekend trip and it was comfortable and clean. The neighborhood was nice and food was available in a few blocks. It was close to all the attractions I wished to see. breakfast was good if a little later in the morning than I would have liked. The innkeeper was personabale and professional.

We stayed in Annie's third floor suite for a little over two weeks and very much enjoyed our stay. Since we were traveling to a place with a 13-hour-time-difference, we wanted to be at a place that is very private. (We did not want to wake up other guests.) This place was located on the top floor with one queen,... More

I was made very welcome. Lovely home and value for money. Excellent breakfast with numerous teas available. Real old style New England house in quiet part of town. Really need a car as half hour walk to downtown but taxis cheap.

This was a very nice bed and breakfast. The location was excellent, close to Wayland Square. I enjoyed our room, as our bed was very comfy and it was clean. The bathroom was located across the hall, but was clean as well. The house had an English feel to it, and felt very European to me. For breakfast, the innkeeper... More

Annie was a gracious host. She was very accommodating to our numerous questions and requests. We had the ground floor room as my sister cannot negotiate many stairs. The bed was extremely comfortable and the dressing room and bathroom were quite nice. The home itself is full of the lovely features of Victorian period homes- moldings, wainscoting and wide halls.... More

We stayed at this B&B last week while traveling the New England states. While we found the accomodations wonderful, Annie was a bit unpredicatble. It took her over 5 minutes to answer the door and once she did, shes stated she had been taking a nap, She then stared at us, not introducing herself or welcoming us inside! Later, we... More
