Return to the Blue Cottage
This was my second visit to the blue cottage and it was just as wonderful as the first time. Helen is a wonderful host and very accommodating. The suite is clean, open and bright. She had it stocked with coffee, cream, croissants, and fresh apples upon our arrival which meant no rush to the grocery store the morning after we got in late.
The cottage is a 2 bedroom suite on the 2nd floor of her home. The staircase to the 2nd floor is original to the house so it is a bit steep, slightly spiraling and a can be difficult to navigate with heavy luggage. There are bannisters on both sides of the stairwell. No problem for the average person but could be a challenge for some.
The neighborhood is an older one in transition as several properties are being rehabbed to their former colonial charm. The cottage is just a short drive to Atwells street where there is dining and shopping galore. A fun place in the evening! Also close to interstates and highways which were convenient for us to explore Newport, the Cape, NH and Maine. Lovely home away from home!!
Thank you so much , Helen!!
Extremely Clean, Safe, and Cozy!
Helen and her space are both incredible. She is attentive, helpful, and generous. We appreciated her tips on how to use the trains, as well as her letting us stay a bit longer than check-out. The apartment was so bright, well-appointed, clean, and homey. We looked forward to ending our busy days in the welcoming space she provides her guests.
By the end of our stay, we'd gratefully worked through the bowl of apples and the cranberry rounds she'd left for us.
I'd been worried about safety, but the neighborhood felt good. We walked at night to a nearby restaurant (recommended by Helen!). Well, we ended up walking most places we wanted to go since the property is perfectly located.
We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Helen!
Helen's rental which is an apartment above her own was a little piece of heaven in a local Providence neighborhood. The rooms are tastefully decorated and she provided enough linens for the three of us--plenty of towels and blankets. The apartment was spacious with two sitting areas and the kitchen looked brand new with stainless steel appliances and gorgeous counter-tops. We didn't cook much because we ate twice at a fabulous local restaurant, Loie Fullers, a suggestion made by Helen. We did eat some take out on the enclosed back patio surrounded by beautiful plants and greenery. If you have trouble with steps, then you might want to reconsider. We did not mind the steps at all and was good exercise. We were also centrally located to our destination--Waterfire. And we Ubered around the city for easy transportation. Helen, you have a great little place and I look forward to coming back sometime.
We loved our weekend in Providence!
This property is charming. Helen was such a delight to work with. Highly recommend her space.
My stay in Providence
The home was exactly as pictured and exceptionally clean. The home has been completely updated and decorated very nicely. The beds were comfortable, everything worked in the bathroom, everything worked in the kitchen and it was in a great location, easy to get to any place in Providence. Helen was a most gracious hostess, leaving breakfast food for us for the first day and greeting us at the door late in the evening upon arrival. I would absolutely recommend this location for a visit to Providence or even if you’re traveling out to Newport, as we did. Helen left a wonderful list of restaurants and was quite knowledgeable of the area.
Great stay at Blue Cottage
This was a great find. The property is immaculate, thoughtfully decorated, very well stocked and comfortable. Helen is a wonderful and thoughtful host. We highly recommend staying at Blue Cottage!
