18th wedding anniversary

My husband and I live in RI. We spent our 18th wedding anniversary at this B&B in March 2015. We loved the mansion from the moment we entered. We stayed in the Samuel Priest room. "Gorgeous", quiet and comfortable. Anne was our Inn keeper and Joy was the chef. Both ladies were kind, and accomodating to every guest. Thank you ladies!! The food was delicious, and if you stay there, be sure and try the stuffed french toast ! From the outside of the building to every corner, there was something of interest to look at, and take pictures of. Beautiful antiques and gorgeous woodwork. We were served breakfast in the wonderfull dinning room. We enjoyed converstion with people from Maine, to Chicago. People from "All" walks of life with similar stories to tell. No children allowed at this Inn, which made it even more appealing. We will be returning in the summer to enjoy breakfast outside. I can't wait to see what the grounds look like in full bloom !! It snowed while we visited, however while outside I saw growth coming through the snow. I am so glad, I chose Edgewood Manor Inn !!!! We will be back. If you stay there, be sure and spend every moment that you can within the mansion. Michael Sr and Charlotte Roy

A fantastic night

We were looking for a B+B near Downtown Providence and found this place. Our stay was fantastic. The decor and service was excellent. We look forward to coming back.

Elegance meets Comfortable!

My wife and i stayed overnight at Edgewood and we were extremely impressed with the experience. Inn Keeper Ken Porter made us feel at home from the minute we arrived and was very knowledgeable about the property's history and area attractions. The room was amazing and we spent several hours on the patio with other guests. The breakfast was spectacular and highlighted our stay at the inn. We will definitely be returning for another stay very soon.

Bad Experience

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of July 2014. The main building with the beautiful entrance caught my eye when I booked Edgewood Manor. The room we stayed in did not come even close to how this B&B presents itself. Cracked tiles, rusty heater, defect shower head, defect blinds, extremely loud air condition window unit, ... . Conversations with the owner of the B&B manifested a lack of hospitality. Guests are watched via webcam and maybe even overheard. The location is residential - direct neighbors are CVS and Walgreens with big parking lots at a busy intersection. There is nothing to do, no place to go to, no restaurants or other points of interests.

Charm Personified

Since I live in an Italian Revival house, I figured that I'd feel at home in this Greek Revival inn. The charm and quirkiness of the facility was exceeded only by the professionalism and friendliness of its staff. We can't wait to come back.

Relaxing

A beautifully decorated restored mansion that is filled with period antiques. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by Drew who was more than happy to explain the history of the inn. My stay in Scarlett's Reteat was comfortable and the sunroom was the perfect place for me to catch up on my reading while enjoying my morning coffee. My only regret was that being July it was the wrong time of year to use the fireplace. I will return.

Beautiful inside and out

We stayed in the Edgewood Manor recently and was truly amazed. The inn is furnished beautifuly with gorgeous antiques and was so comfortable. The innkeeper ken was sweet and pointed in the right direction for all the best sights to see while in providence. Our room was lovely the palladian room and for 180 a night it was truly a steal. We got a wonderful wine and cheese reception and a scrumptious breakfast by the chef the next day . The only negative is we had to leave the next day . Truly one of the treasure inns in , New England

We loved it!

ME and my wife were coming to the RI area for a wedding. We researched online different hotels and B&B's and finally decided on Edgewood Manor. It had a look that as very intriguing to us. We booked the Tara suite which was very nice. The grounds were beautiful, breakfast was fresh and the InnKeeper was always pleasant and friendly. We definitely enjoyed our stay here and will be telling others that we know in the area.

Little Rhody at its best!

The Edgewood Manor presents a wonderful base from which to tour Providence, Roger Williams Park, Pawtuxet Village and the beautiful Narragansett Bay. We couldn't have received a warmer welcome than from our gracious hosts. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts tasty and the overall environment most inviting and hospitable. By the way, I only agreed to write this having secured a pledge from the proprietors to always have some room at the inn for us!

Romantic Night Inn!

My fiancee and I visited the Edgewood Moanro a few weekends ago. It was absolutely the best B&B we had stayed at. The InnKeeper and his wife were very kind and took care of everything and anything we needed. Out room was gorgeous, clean and cozy. The breakfast in morning was delicious and fresh. The grounds were beautiful and the Inn itself was breathtaking. We loved this place so much we thought about staying another night. We will definitely be back to stay in the Samuel Priest room and to visit with the Innkeeper and his wife! Truly a romantic getaway even if it was just for the night!!

Excellent B&B!!

I travel all over the country and always stay in B & B's. The Edgewood is one of my favorites! The rooms are beautiful and extremely comfortable. The owner and innkeepers are wonderful and add to the antique filled ambiance - there is something of interest and wonder in every corner. The little town of Cranston may be overshadowed by close by Providence, but don't overlook it. Then again this Inn is a destination in itself! Don't pass this one up!!

amazing weekend and what a gift

I rented the inn last weekend for a 15 member family reunion. To see my aunts and cousins walk in and burst into tears of happiness was an incredible moment. The rooms are beautifully appointed; the lit fireplaces (real wood, not gas) and the decorating over the top. We were all treated like princesses, the breakfasts were extraordinary. The staff gracious and attentive. If I could move in, I would!

Romantic 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Wow! My wonderful wife Gina and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a stay in the Colonial Room. It was gorgeous. Everything about Edgewood Manor B&B was first rate. Beautiful antique furniture side by side with the most modern comforts. We had tea in the Library. Andy made us a delicious omelet breakfast in the Sun Room. I think that we have started a new annual tradition. What a lovely, romantic place! Go! Enjoy!

Wonderful inn and lovely service.

When we arrived Rick the innkeeper helped us with our bags. We had a lot of them since we were staying for several nights. We were in the Providence area to visit our daughter. She just gave birth to a new baby girl. We loved our room which had a fireplace and beautiful king size bed. The room was spacious, clean,and comfortable. The breakfasts were different and delicious each day. Wish they were a little earlier but 8-9am worked out fine Joy made coffee at 7 and there was a 24 hr tea and coffee area in the library that was great. The inn was was nice for just lounging an relaxing in the common areas. We will in the spring to visit again and will stay here at Edgewood Manor.

New Years Eve Blast!!!

This was a beautiful inn with gorgeous beds and amazing common areas. the library was co comfy and stately and the music room was awesome with the gilded domed ceiling. We had a great breakfast by Joy in the formal dining room and loved it immensely. This is a must stay when in Providence Rhode Island Much better than a stuffy outdated hotel.

Romantic, comfortable,Historic.

Edgewood Manor was the perfect blend of comfort and elegance. We stayed in the scarlets retreat it had a wood burning fireplace that was so romantic and drop dead gorgeous. The room was lovely and the entire inn was spectacular. The common areas were beautiful especially the library. The breakfast was very good with home made blueberry corn muffins and a delicious omelet cooked perfectly.

chef tell-u off

recently stayed with a late arrival and L explained the rules,and one was that breakfast is served 8am to 9:30ish...arrived at the dinning room at 9:15 am and gave our order to the server...we were told we were late but they would take care of us,by the chef herself,when the orders arrived they weren't correct,I approached the chef and questioned why my order wasn't correct,she informed me that I wasn't given a choice,the server came in at that moment and I questioned her about my order and she hesitated to tell the truth and finally admitted to a might have...I told the chef that I found her rude and totally out of line...her response,"that's your opinion" with no apology,I'm the customer at $229 a nite and the chef is calling me a liar...don't think so...a side note,bathroom amenities lacking,very old tv,3rd floor walk-up...lacks personal attention all around...staff not customer friendly or attentive...elegant venue with no ammenities and extremely unattentive staff.
