This 14-room B&B, housed in an Italianate mansion, is slightly out of the downtown Providence fray, but still only a 10-minute walk to great shopping, dining, and theatre. The rooms are charming (most have a gas fireplace or stove), staffers are sweet, and breakfasts–from blueberry pancakes to vegetable quiche–are hearty. BEST CITY ESCAPE.
