The Pillsbury House, built in 1875, is situated on a quiet residential street in the city's historic district. This Victorian design 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. 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.

The Pillsbury House had beautifully decorated rooms with lovely antiques. Each room was large and offered you ample space for relaxation. The dining room and living areas were beautifully decorated as well. The staff was friendly as was the host and hostess. The breakfast was very good and they were most accommodating. It was centrally located with an easy ride to Providence. All the homes were historical in the area. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

This is a great place to stay if you are traveling in the New England Area. It is away from the busy cities yet close enough to see things in the city if you desire. Roger and Carin are great hosts and very acomadating. Breakfasts were good as well. Would sty here again if we are in the area.

We stayed at the Pillsbury House for 3 nights in July 2017. It was our second stay at the Inn and we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. Roger and Corrine greeted us and provided us with recommendations for local eateries. Every morning, we enjoyed delicious breakfasts and conversation with Alice. The home is private, impeccable, full of history and tradition. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay at the Pillsbury House.

I stayed in the white room, which was clean and comfortable. Outside my room was a small sitting area which I found was a great place to read after my hectic day. The lovely cook prepared a delicious breakfast which was enjoyed with others who were staying. They were from Florida and Buffalo New York, I am from Pennsylvania, so it provided for interesting conversation and a delightful meal.
