    Historical Traveler Reviews Edgewood Manor Bed and Breakfast Cranston

    Fabulous home away from home


    We have stayed at this property twice and are going to return twice within the next 3 months. As far as we're concerned, there is no other place to stay in the Providence area. Each time we stay in the Elms suite, a 2-bedroom 1-bath. We love the charm of this property and the hospitality of the innkeepers. Our room has always been clean - even the window units do a fine job of cooling the place down on those steamy days! The breakfast is delicious and served in a beautiful dining room (or outside on the patio if you prefer), and it's so much fun to visit with the other guests. The property is not in Providence "proper", but it's very easy to get to and we don't mind at all. I can't say enough about the property or the management - hopefully the fact that we return again and again speaks for itself!



    Wonderful. I stayed there a few weeks ago for my brothers graduation. Clean beautiful rooms, Great beds, Awesome breakfast's.... What more is there...

    A romantic getaway


    We spent the weekend at the Edgewood Manor and had a fabulous time.

    After battling traffic in an awful mess on Route 95 North, we arrived at the Manor. We were greeted and welcomed into a perfectly decorated foyer. We stayed next door at the sister property, the Newhall House.

    We had our own hide-a-way in the Edgewood Room. The room was just what we needed after our long trek - a comfortable bed and a relaxing jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was in the Manor and was great! We would recommend this place to anyone!!!

    Purely Objective


    Ok, so the Providence address is initially confusing. But once you map the location it becomes obvious that your not in downtown. If I wanted a downtown location I could have had it. I chose this B & B because of it's history (which no one has mentioned), it's architecture (which is amazing)and it's usable fireplaces which few B & B's have. But let's get real about this. B & B's are old, usually rundown at purchase mansions that constantly need upkeep. They are always a work in progress. I would much rather see maintenance being performed than not!

    Does it look as good in person as it does in the pictures? Of course not. But nothing ever looks 'picture perfect'. As far as the location, B & B's are never in the 'hot' or 'prime' retail or entertainment locations. They can be found, however, in renovation areas that have huge amounts of history and Edgewood is no exception. If the staff was not friendly it was probably because you were not friendly. That's true for almost any occassion. We found the staff very friendly and helpfull. B & B's rarely offer a choice for breakfast but Edgewood always offered 2 with plenty of pastries and fruit as a 'breakfast appetizer'. The afternoon tea's were enjoyable with home made biscotti as the snack.

    Every room we were in was beautiful and the main rooms downstairs were full of amazing antiques. Yes, I do recommend a car if you don't want to cab it. But it is very easy to get downtown. The bottom line is if your a B & B person then this is a must stay. If your not accustomed to B & B's and want location then pay $200/night to stay at the Courtyard Downtown and see if it's worth it!

    Absolutely Wonderful!


    My husband and I have been to several B&Bs as we've traveled the States with the military, and Edgewood Manor is by far the most incredible home we've ever stayed in. The house itself is exquisitely restored and decorated. We spent much of the first day admiring the antiques and architecture. Our room was fabulous! The antique bed was extremely comfortable - given that our host is a chiropractor, I'm not surprised!

    - and we thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi. For the few days we were there, we were pampered beyond belief. Each morning we awoke to a wonderful gourmet breakfast in the manor's beautiful formal dining room and each afternoon we came "home" to tea and biscotti by a cozy fire in the library. Edgewood Manor is also close to downtown Providence, which was great for us since we had never been in the area. We ventured out to many nearby attractions, including a vineyard, and had a fabulous time. I highly recommend this unbelievable find to any couple who wants to treat themselves to a refreshing, indulgent getaway.

    The Best New Year's Eve ever!


    What can I say. The Edgewood B&B was exceptional. Every detail was beyond expectation. My partner and I were truely celebrated the best New Year's ever and staying at the Edgewood contributed to such a wonderful night. The Carrera Room and it's spectacular king sized four poster bed wrapped around you in the warmth that is the Edgewood B&B.

    Our hosts were instant friends and I became "keeper of the flame" though not that well, yet made to feel a part of this amazing restful home. GO, STAY AND ENJOY! I know Todd and I will be returning for many New Year's to come.



    I decided to take a last minute trip to Providence, RI on Jan. 12th, and searched through trip advisor to find an exciting place to stay. Edgewood Manor looked cool so I booked it.Neighborhood/Location: Edgewood Manor isn't in downtown Providence, it is actually in Cranston, which wasn't a big deal to us.A few people, on the comments section, complained about the neighborhood that Edgewood Manor is in, but it actually isn't near as bad as they made it out to be. The neighborhood isn't run down, It isn't very exciting either, but it I guess it is all subjective. I kind of like the fact that when I got there, it felt like wow, what is this amazing place doing out here?Accommodations: I stayed in the Scarlet room, one of many rooms at the Manor, because it had a fire place. They room was amazing, just like the rest of the house/manor. And their attention to detail was great. It got a little cold in the evening when the wind picked up and the sink outside the bathroom was a little 1800s, but everything else was great.Staff: The staff was extremely friendly extremely knowledgeable and made my trip outstanding. They were very hands off. I came and went as I pleased. I'm not big on breakfast, so I didn't join them in the morning, but I'm sure they put a lot of attention to detail there as well.Overall: Overall the manor was great. It is very romantic place if you want to bring a significant other. The neighborhood it is in doesn t scream Providence , but the manor does.

    Edgewood Manor - Lovely!


    Happy to report this traveler's first B&B experience was a winner! Edgewood Manor is a really pretty house that's kept up very well and is quite comfortable. The innkeepers are warm and friendly, and all the rooms are beautiful. They also know how to make delicious waffles! Loved it!

    Skip Edgewood Manor's little sister the Newhall House


    We thought Edgewood Manor was stunningly beautiful, unfortunately we didn't stay there but in its side-kick next door, the Newhall House. It was our worst B&B experience to date. The Edgewood bedroom was small, about three feet of room around the bed on three sides (plus bathroom). A list of grievances include: the stoppers didn't work in the sink or the whirlpool, the whirlpool ran out of hot water after being half full, the fake marble in the bathroom was less than impressive, the door into the room took a good hit from a shoulder to open, spider webs seemed to be an art form that were to be left alone, the iron had so much junk on it that if would have immediately ruined what ever it touched, the shower head was not movable and hit my wife straight in the face, the pillows smelled (we sprayed them with cologne), there were no tissues (I bought some for the room), only one bar of soap (I bought another), no wash clothes for the last night we stayed (I couldn't find anyone to give us some so we used some dish rags I bought from the drug store next door) and the room was very warm becasue there were no fans. For $150 a night we expected a lot more.

    Fabulous Getaway


    My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary at Edgewood Manor and were delighted. It was even better in person than on-line.

    The archetecture, antiques, and history in the house were amazing.

    We stayed in the Rennaissance Room, which I believe is the smallest room they have, but we loved it. The big antique four poster bed was so comfortable. The room also had all the modern conveniences of air conditioning, cable television, new outlets, etc. We originally found ourselves whispering when we were in our room, but then realized that the rooms were pretty soundproof. Despite there being a full house, we seldom heard noise from any other guests.

    Also, the gourmet breaksfast each morning was fabulous. The omlettes were chock full of fresh vegetables, and the Belgian waffles featured very fresh fruit. In addition, we had options including fresh baked muffins and bread, fruit salads, and cereals.

    In terms of location, yes, there is a Walgreens next door, but It's behind a tall fence so you don't even realize it's there. The street is full of beautiful homes, and the beautiful Roger Williams Park is at the other end of the street. The trip to downtown is a mere 10 minutes by car on the highway.

    I'm already recommending Edgewood Manor to all my friends! Sue Spiry

    ... them, entire fences surrounding a home made from stacks of flat rock, and weathered buildings beaten by decades of salt air all add to the ambiance. Some of the buildings in the area are 400 years old or more, and it staggers the mind to think of all the lives and changes that they have seen in that time.

    We are one week away! Everything is in order, and we are getting very excited! We've been following the two safari lodges we are going to stay at on social media, and they are posting some great pictures! I am, however, not very excited that when Jeff was taking to someone who just came back from that area on New Years mentioned how many black mambas there were. REALLY?? I knew there were snakes, bit that is not what I wanted to hear!! Until next ...
