A stunning 3-story brick Italianate mansion listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Christopher Dodge House is one of the few small luxury bed and breakfasts in Providence, RI.Â Completely restored, this historic Bed and Breakfast is truly an architectural gem featuring many 11-foot ceilings, marble fireplace enclosures, ornate plaster moldings, and original tin ceilings.
Built in 1858, the inn served as the primary residence of the Dodge family (whose head was a former Mayor of Providence) until 1901 when it was converted to an apartment house. A century of rental use took its toll on the property, and it was the pleasure of the present Innkeepers, Kenneth and Phyllis Parker and Frank and Monica Hopton, to bring it back to its original stately grandeur during its conversion to a luxury bed and breakfast.
Christopher Dodge House is centrally located near the Rhode Island State Capitol Building and offers the personal service and unique accommodations you are seeking, making us the best lodging choice for your visit to Providence.Â We are a 10-minute walk to the nationally well-known Providence â€śWaterFire,â€ť which celebrates the Cityâ€™s connectivity to multicultural activities of fun events, fabulous food, entertainment, and shopping. The setting of beautiful lengthy canals with Italian gondoliers singing and maneuvering on authentic gondolas throughout the downtown waters is matched only by the more than 80 aromatic wood smoke sparkling bonfires flickering over the waters, architectural silhouettes, and bridges as thousands of locals and visitors listen to engaging music from around the world.Â It is a beautiful sight long remembered.
