The Pillsbury House, built in 1875, is situated on a quiet residential street in Woonsocket's historic north-end of Victorian Mansard design. The property features an original 2-story carriage house with 3 stalls & tack room. Gardens, fruit trees, perennials, and herb plantings surround the main house. The house retains the original exterior millwork and ornamentation such as dentil detailing on window hoods. Step up the granite steps onto the wrap around porch, (complete with rocking chairs) and up to the arched double front doors and ring the original ornate doorbell. Enter the foyer which has a ten-foot canvas covered ceiling, reproduction historical wallpaper, cushioned bay-window seats, walnut ribbon banded parquet floors and a grand oak stairway to usher visitors to the upstairs guestrooms. To the right of the foyer, double French doors open to the formal parlor with cranberry and cream walls, a center medallion ceiling, and a fireplace with tiled hearth. The sitting room has cable TV. Another French door leads to the formal dining room where your breakfast is served using family silver and china. The room has slanted bay windows, plaster cove ceiling molding and ribbon banded parquet floors. Juice, fresh fruit, coffee, teas, bread or muffins are served before the main course.

My husband & I stayed at the Pillsbury House B & B for two weeks. We were visiting family & friends and our stay there could not have been more pleasant. Roger & Corinne made us feel right at home immediately. There was breakfast each morning served by Chris (housekeeper and cook) and she took good care of us during our stay. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Pillsbury House is set in a very quiet section of the city so noise was not a factor. We will be returning to Woonsocket in the near future and we would not stay anywhere else. Chris & Ray

I stayed at B&Bs a long, long time ago in Ireland --college graduation gift to myself. Years in business found me in one generic hotel after another. Pillsbury House gave us a flavor (figuratively and literally) of the town much better than any bland hotel. It's renewed our love for the comfort and care you can get on the open road.

As full time grad-students and parents, we were looking for a simple, inexpensive trip to celebrate our 11 years of marriage. Our hosts were courteous, and the value of our stay was exactly as we had hoped. Cute downtown for meals!

We visited NE for 2 weeks and stayed at 12 top rated B&Bs. This was among the best. Room was large with a remarkably comfortable bed, large bath, adequate parking, great breakfast, superb service, and at an outstanding price to boot.. Doesn't get any better. We chose this B&B because we needed to be close to the Providence airport the next day, but it turned out to be our favorite. Wish we had had it in Portland. Highly recommended.The all 5 star ratings I gave is not silliness, it was that good.

Pillsbury house was the ideal spot to introduce my husband & I to the world of bed& breakfast Inns. We were welcomed in by a personalized note then met by Roger, the owner who gave us a tour and filled us in in the history of house. Breakfast was personal & delicious! We would recommend this lovely place to everyone!

When we stopped at the Blackstone Valley Visitors center in Pawtucket, we told the information person we were staying in Woonsocket and they said, "Must be the Pillsbury House: it's the best place to stay." The Pillsbury house is on a rise above the city. It is a beautiful Victorian home with very authentic period furniture. Our Room - the Victorian - had a very nice bed with a convenient private 3/4 bath. I was going back down to Pawtucket to see the Red Sox AAA team, and Roger, our host was extremely helpful and savvy. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, creative and fresh, including a fancy version of french toast, a fruit salad, and sausage. We enjoyed meeting our fellow guests in the formal yet comfortable dining room. It was a delightful stay, and a good value.
