Poor experience

1.4 on July 15, 2014

The pictures do not show the auxiliary building nor its bedrooms. Unfortunately, they were sub-par, poorly maintained and well below expectation. The AC was missing control buttons, which means that you had to put your fingers inside the control board to get it going. The shower was terrible and the cleanliness random. At breakfast the cook was unpleasant and inflexible. When I asked an omelet with only one egg yolk for health reasons her answer was "eat a smaller omelet". Cherry on top, our friends who joined us made a mistake with the booking date. They then fixed it by re-booking the correct dates which were earlier. Instead of thanking them for the business, the owner refused to return the money for the 2 nights that were accidentally booked. You would better avoid short sighted people like that with a despicable attitude and take your business to a place were you feel welcome. Never again.

Beautiful Inn

4.6 on August 16, 2013

The Edgewood Manor is a beautifully restored 20th century inn. I stayed in the Colonial room; the king sized bed and oversized jacuzzi were a treat. Joy, the chef, made a wonderful breakfast that included her signature blueberry corn muffins, which were to die for. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Our Wedding Night

4.4 on June 03, 2013

My Fiance at the time (now my husband) chose this place for us to spend our first night together as husband and wife, I guess I should mention that it was our first night together ever! My jaw basically dropped when I saw the building , the various rooms on the first floor and then our gorgeous room! It had a beautiful tub and large shower in the private bath. I do not usually like staying in hotels but this place was immaculate! I could have not imagined a more romantic place to spend a first night as a married couple! We had to leave very early the next morning so unfortunately we were not able to try the food but I did not want to leave! This place will always have a special place in my heart and I cannot wait for another visit!

The BEST!!!

Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay in the beautiful Ocean State. Will most definitely go back for a great weekend. All staff were pleasant to work with. 5/5 rating!

After reading some of the other reviews we went with mixed feelings but these were dashed on arrival.When we decide to take a trip I spend a considerable amount of time searching the net for places to stay and things to do while we are there.This was not the case. We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it. The rooms were clean. The staff went out of there way to make us feel at home and were very helpful with all of our questions.The food was outstanding. For the money this place was great! See you all again next Fall.

Out of this world!

Traveled to Rhode Island on business and found this gem, I did not want to stay at a hotel, I thought this would be the next best thing, well, it was the best option! I look forward to visiting again. Staff was friendly, food was excellent. And the home was awesome! I was able to relax and conduct business in an amazing setting!

Had a fabulous weekend!

Visited the Edgewood Manor on the weekend following Valentines day as a gift for me and my fiancee. We had an amazing time, the Samuel priest room was beyond words. The decor and furnishings were wonderful, the in suite jacuzzi was exceptional, and the fire place breathtaking. We had a full breakfast in the morning to start our day, it was if we had cooked right at home, food was perfection. We look forward to getting away to the inn again soon!

All the right details and touches

My stay at the Edgewood Manor in Cranston was the highlight of my New England trip. From start to finish, every detail of my stay was just perfect. The atmosphere is like stepping into 19th Century New England - every room and every detail of every room are spectacular. If it wasn't for the TV you'd swear it was 1905 all over again. The bed was heavenly, the jacuzzi soothed the knots away, and the antiques and art made you appreciate just how much care was used in selecting these fine antiques and decor. Kudos to the staff for the awesome breakfasts, served nice and hot with delicious coffee and juices. All in all, it is a terrific value and I will definitely return with friends and family.
