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.
Best kept secret
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!!!
A very special place....
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.
A wonderful travel experience
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.
Work required me to travel through Providence to the northwest part of Rhode Island and the commute from Seekonk was quick and easy. Jacob Hill is a convenient location for commuters into Providence and affords easy access to the city for cultural activities, dinner and nightlife. After enjoying Providence, guests can readily return to the peace and quiet of country life at the Inn. I highly recommend the Inn for both business and pleasure travelers.
What an exceptional and pleasant surprise!
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.
The second time we stayed with Bill and Eleanora was in April of 2004. Again, we stayed in the renovated stable but in another beautiful room, with French doors to the bathroom, fireplace and every creature comfort. By this time Bill & Eleanora had completed the renovation of the other half of the stable into a beautiful reception area, meeting room, billiard room and large living room with a huge TV and comfy leather sofas. What an excellent job they have done with this beautiful estate. We would highly recommend this facility to anyone traveling to the area, even if on business. Our trip there this year was to attend a convention in downtown Providence for most of the week and, with their directions, it took only 8-10 minutes of driving for us to get there. And what a peaceful beautiful place to come home to every evening. We hope that we will be able to return soon and take advantage of their excellent hospitality again in the future. We feel as if we've made some great friends in Bill and Eleanora. How could anyone stay there and not feel that way? You'll see, just go, you'll LOVE it. V.M.
An Exceedingly Fine Inn & Even Finer Hosts
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.
Eleanor's breakfasts were exceptionally fine. Bill and Eleanor are more than happy to--actually take delight in--helping you shape your day if your goal is to enjoy Providence and environs. They offered excellent recommendations on a wide array of local restaurants and attended to reservations and the like.
The pool provides a most welcome (and bracing) respite at the end of a day out and about. Like everything else about the place, the pool area is impecably maintained and real inviting. If the pool doesn't help you get out from behind the wheel and finally off the road, then the full sise Jacuzzi in your suite probably will.
The amenity package includes free access to a number of leisure time and/or cultural activities, services or events in Providence.
Bill and Eleanor can be justifiably proud of what they have created. The overall quality of the facility as a whole is exceeded only their warmth and good nature. You should go to their website and read their motto. It is an all too rare case of truth in advertising.
Elegant yet comfortable--a great inn!
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.
