Welcome to the Old Court, a Providence, Rhode Island Bed and Breakfast Inn that combines tradition with contemporary standards of luxury.

Filled with antique furniture, chandeliers and memorabilia from the nineteenth century, the Old Court Bed and Breakfast is a refreshing reminder of the sophisticated styles of a century past.

Each of our ten rooms have been carefully designed to reflect period tastes. Ranging from the ornateness of Rococo Revival to the intricacy of Eastlake refinement, the Old Court encompasses the best of nineteenth century decors. In rooms overlooking the Capitol and downtown Providence you'll feel as if you've entered a more gracious era.
