... of what became New England. They used whale oil for lighting and heating. They used other parts of the whales, such as the skins, and they used even the bones for carving art, called scrimshaw. The museum there was gorgeous, from the building, down to the displays. In one part, they had a whole skeleton of a huge whale hanging from the ceiling. In another part of the museum, they had put together an entire whaling ship! I stood there, ...
... for the designing of the facade and Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. The house was designed in the Italian Renaissance style between 1893 & 1895 with 70 rooms in total! I'm fairly sure it was the ultimate game of hide and seek! As Vanderbilt wanted to build the house on a deadline he had some rooms created in studios and warehouses in France before being dismantled and shipped to Newport where they would ...
... me..my point is...WHO WAS I KIDDING?! As I sit here and realize that life in Australia will be so much different, I also have to take into consideration that this will be a growing and learning experience like I've never experienced before. I'm going to have my own apartment, cook ALL my own meals, take public transportation to get to class, use all the money I've ever saved up and the scariest thought of all---I can't call my mom every day. In fact, I can't see her for ...
We went to Costco and BJ's. The sizes and the prices are truly surprising. Before this, we had bought food at Whole Foods supermarket, which sells mainly ecological products. And we had bought food at other ****** supermarkets, where all the food can stay on shelves for 5 years. I was bewildered by the variety of ...
... Adams, sixth President of the US was born. Some woman asked about the very large planks of pine that went into building the floor of the house. The tour guide said the pine had come locally, but in that time, all of the large pine trees belonged to the King, and it was illegal to cut any of them down. However, if they fell on their own via say a windstorm, then they were "fair game." He said, that was called a "windfall." How many of you knew that??? Not me! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Historic Jacob Hill Inn Seekonk
It doesn't get better than this.
What a wonderful place. It's almost too good to describe. My wife, Becky and I went to Jacob Hill for a week on our honeymoon. Neither of us had ever stayed at a B&B and were a little skeptical. Now we're afraid that no other B&B will be able to live up to our expectations set by Bill and Eleonora and their beautiful property. Bill and Eleonora are the kindest most enjoyable hosts you can ever hope to meet. The instant you arrive at the Jacob Hill Inn they greet you as if you're returning home to visit family. Their bright smiles, delicious breakfasts and great suggestions for daily activities made our honeymoon perfect. We were planning our return trip before we even left. You'll love it here.
There are so many places in New England to stay, with many beautiful B&Bs, but the best by far is the Jacob Hill Inn. Liz is originally from Connecticut, so we chose that location for our wedding over Labor Day weekend. From the first telephone call to the final hug good bye, Bill and Eleanora were like relatives, making us feel completely at home. We stayed in the Newport, and enjoyed the enormous bed (best night's sleep in ages!) and the jacuzzi. The chocolates included in the turn down service were wonderful, and Eleanora gives my wife a run for her money when it comes to breakfast. Everything is just delicious! They do not hesitate to help when trying to navigate around Providence, and they even made our reservations for dinner if we did not know where to go. It was a very pleasant experience, and they were both so easy to talk to and get to know. It was wonderful to spend our honeymoon with such romantics for innkeepers. We will definitely stay there again, and again, and again.....
Beautiful and peaceful
This place was more than I ever imagined and Bill and Eleonora are the perfect couple to make your stay wonderful. They were very friendly to us when we first arrived at the hotel, treating us like family. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and the renovation they did to the barn is incredible. A pool table and plasma TV has been added to the upstairs of the barn and the dining area is quite roomy. It will be great when the kitchen is finished in the barn. It was very quiet in the evenings as well for some romance. A great place to stay.
By the way, Eleonora makes a killer breakfast and Bill has some great stories to tell.
What a delightful Bed & Breakfast in New England
We loved it!!! The hospitality was second to none. Beautiful rooms and property. Looking forward to returning SOON! We've been commenting on how wonderful this B&B is since we've gotten home!!!
My husband and I just came back from our second stay at Jacob Hill Farm. Our first stay was about 5 years ago....before the renovation of the barn....so we stayed in the main house. That visit was exceptional. It had snowed during the night of that visit and when I looked out our window very early the next morning, I saw Bill brushing off ALL the guests cars....before breakfast! This second visit was even better than the first....if that is possible. Bill was there to greet us as we parked our car. Elenora was right behind him...enthusiastically welcoming us back. The attention to detail, the gracious hospitality, amenities too numerous to mention here, the beautiful decor, the absolutely peaceful atmosphere that is created there is truly amazing. We have stayed in many Inns and this is one of the best. We highly recommend staying at this very special property being the guests of very special innkeepers.
A wonderfully relaxing inn, yet close to Providence.
The Jacobs Hill farm has wonderful hospitality and accommodations. It is agreat place for a get away or if you are on business. The quiet grounds and beautiful setting make it a wonderful retreat after meetings all day in Providence.
The Historic Jacob Hill Farm B&B is a wonderful Inn. I have spent over 50 nights lodging there in the past several years while traveling on business and I cannot thank the hosts enough for the attention and comfort they lavish on their guests. The Inn is warm and wonderful and Bill & El are friendly and caring. The environment is luxurious without being stuffy. The Inn is beautifully decorated and the grounds are well maintained.
When we first pulled into the driveway of the Historic Jacob Hill Inn we were in for a wonderful surprise. We expected a small quaint little Inn, but found instead a grand estate with lovely landscaping, pool, tennis court and open wildflower covered pastures for viewing. We loved the peaceful feeling of serenity that overcame us as we got out of our car after our long drive. The first time we stayed, about 3 years ago, we were impressed with the main house and Bill & Eleanora's careful attention to detail. The rooms were inviting, warm and cozy. But our room was in the renovated horse stables, the Newport Suite. How breathtaking it was. And so elegant and comfortable with it's king bed, double whirlpool tub and fireplace. We felt like a king and queen celebrating in style. The excellent breakfast was served the next morning in the main house, with Eleanora in the kitchen and Bill serving. They are both so friendly, kind and entertaining, just a "hoot" to be around. They helped us plan our whole day so that we wouldn't miss any of the sights of the area.
My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at this beautiful Inn. The Innkeepers, Bill and Eleanor, have created a world class facility. The original house is maintained beautufully and with a keen eye on authenticity. We stayed in the Boston Suite in the very recently renovated barn, and awoke each morning to a view of songbirds perched on the whitewashed fence. The grounds are pristine and inviting, and you will not hear the hum of the Interstate here, to put it mildly. Yet, you are only about 10 minutes away from whatever Providence has to offer, which is not inconsiderate--especially if you like to eat well.
We loved the charming decor and collections in the original main house, but we were so incredibly impressed with the new guest rooms and common area spaces in the recently remodeled horse barn behind the main inn. Every room was more elegant than the next--whirlpools, fireplaces, exquisite antique beds, chandeliers, and fine artwork. The billiard table and leather furniture in the upstairs common area lend the room a masculine, clubby feel that we loved. And the genuine warmth and sense of humor of the innkeepers, Bill & Eleonora, sets you at ease for a relaxing stay. It's a quick 10-minute drive from downtown, which was nice to visit the fine restaurants and shopping. But we'd rather return to the quiet of a truly special inn at the end of the day. We will definitely visit again.
