Close to Boston, Providence, and Newport, our newly renovated home boasts modern comfort w/ coastal charm. Private bed & sitting rooms, kit & laundry access, deck overlooking 2 1/4 acres-all close to tranquil beaches & shops of historic Four Corners.
The house is the former parsonage for the Amicable Congregational Church. Built in 1832, the parsonage is a one-and-a-half story, Greek Revival style vernacular structure with a central entry in a 5-bay facade. This building would have served as the residence for the pastor of the church. We purchased the property from the church in February 2014 and have spent the last year+ renovating this unique property. The scale, architectural details and site make this a special place to visit.

In addition to a private bedroom, bathroom and sitting room/den space that are reserved specifically for guest use, visitors may also have scheduled access to the kitchen, laundry and dining rooms as well as enjoy a spacious deck that overlooks two and a quarter acres of naturalized and landscaped property.
In addition to the cultural and shopping attractions, guests will find lots of nearby recreational opportunities including walking and hiking trails, land preserves, beautiful coastline and sandy beaches. There are a number of local historic sites and house to visit and a small but interesting assortment of local vineyards & miro-breweries.
Non-smoking, easy going and gay friendly guests who like dogs will feel right at home. We have a new Labrador Retriever puppy named Lula who will gladly greet and play with you if you like--but she also is restricted from visiting guest spaces unless invited.
The home is our primary residence but my partner and I both work in the City of Providence--allowing for helpful interactions but also a good amount of space & privacy.
