After our stay in Connecticut we journeyed about an hour northeastward to Providence, Rhode Island. Just across the border from Stonington, the state of Massachusetts was our next stop at the beautiful Historic Jacob Hill Inn. Eleonora was waiting to greet us that afternoon.
Right from the beginning the hospitality was five star. Eleonora helped us with our bags as we were shown to our room, the Boston Suite. This room was bright an airy with plenty of afternoon sunlight. There was a fireplace and a two person Jacuzzi in the bathroom.
As we began our tour of the inn we were treated to a complimentary glass of wine and cheese platter. Upstairs included a large gathering area with a T.V., pool table and ping pong room. This area was ideal for conferences or just hanging out and having some fun. That evening we made sure we took advantage of the ping pong competition.
Afterwards we settled back in our room to enjoy some homemade cookies. In the main area downstairs we were treated to an excellent breakfast in the morning and enjoyed the conversation of Eleonora’s husband Bill. If you love sports Bill can tell you many stories about famous athletes that have come and stayed at his Inn.
The grounds outside are large and entertaining. An in ground swimming pool and tennis court makes this a great place for outdoor activities to do when the weather is nice. Eleonora was very helpful with sightseeing excursions in the area. The next day we explored the campus of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Many thanks to the very cordial innkeepers, Bill and Eleonora, for a lovely stay at their Historic Jacob Hill Inn.
