“Great Couple and Great Rooms!”
Reviewed November 29, 2004

My friend and I visited Historic Jacob Hill Farm in mid-October. Our hosts, Bill and Elenora couldn't have done a better job in restoring their inn. They did a great job keeping up the tradition of the home, enough to make you feel you've stepped back in time. Their knowledge of the surrounding areas regarding places of interest and good restaurants made our stay even more enjoyable. Being a travel agent, I'm very picky, but there wasn't one thing wrong with this establishment. Bill and Elenora were great hosts and served a great breakfast...very ample.

We have stayed at the Jacob Hill Inn several times now while visiting our daughter, who is attending Brown University. The Jacob Hill Inn is only about 10 minutes away from the campus, with plenty of shopping and dining facilites in nearby Seekonk. The innkeepers, Bill and Eleanora, pull out all the stops to make sure each visit is more pleasant and memorable than the last. It's hard to choose which visit has been the nicest -- the weekend that our daughter graduated, or the sumptuous Thanksgiving feast that Bill and Eleanora made for our extended family (which was like having Thanksgiving at home). Each of the rooms is different, but impeccably furnished, and the breakfasts are to die for. Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you stay at the Jacob Hill Inn!!!

The Jacob Hill in was the perfect place for our Honeymoon. The location was ideal, the property was magnificent, the hospitality was warm, and breakfast was yummy! Bill & Elenora have really out-done themselves as Inn Keepers - the attention to detail, ammenities and atmopsphere really make this a five-star destination. We look forward to celebrating many anniversaries to come at The Jacob Hill Inn!

Visiting our daughter at college brought us to the Providence area, where we have traveled many many times. Finding this perfectly peaceful retreat was like winning the lottery. Eleonora and Bill are gracious, welcoming hosts, who made sure we had a grand time in Rhode Island. They suggested a trip to Roger Williams Park to see the Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular. We went and were awed by the creativity and the seasonal fun.

Since we were celebrating a 21st birthday, there were presents to wrap. We had brought the paper and ribbon with us, but no scissors. A call to Eleonora sent Bill flying in our direction...delivering scissors in less than a minute! What exceptional service!

Would we stay there again? In a heartbeat. Would we recommend Jacob Hill Inn? Absolutely.

Jacob Hill Inn is a fantastic place to relax and make new friends. Eleonora and Bill have created a wonderful but rare combination of a welcoming, warm and fun atmosphere where you can make new friends with hosts and guests alike in a delightful, lovingly restored, beautiful old building in a tranquil country setting just outside Providence.

Our room (Providence) was smart and stylish - furnished and decorated to a very high standard, without the fussiness of some old historic inns. We even stayed-in on a Saturday night to enjoy the sumptuousness and wonderful relaxation of the room!

There is plenty of room to relax in - a lovely sitting room in the main house, a smart, modern lounge with wide-screen TV and snooker table in the converted barn, and attractive grounds to walk in.

Breakfast is great - with freshly-cooked and enjoyable food of sensible proportions and the company of friendly and interesting guests.

Eleonora and Bill are wonderful hosts and provide everything you need to make your visit enjoyable and interesting.

If we were significantly nearer, we would spend all our future wedding anniversaries at the Jacob Hill Inn.
