My husband and I stayed at Canfield House after going to the jazz festival. Prices in town were really high that weekend. I booked it on Priceline and they called it a hidden gem. I totally agree. Although it is primarily a restaurant and pub, Canfield House has four rooms for overnight guests. Our queen size room was lovely and...

We choose this location because of the reasonable price. We checked in at the restaurant desk, seeing as there was no reception area and we waited for about 5 minutes while a large function was clearing out. The innkeeper gave us a quick tour of the upstairs and where breakfast would be served at 8am. The room was charming and...

I was a little frustrated not to see any reviews about sleepingin the rooms here, but decided to leap in and give it a try since I found quite a good deal compared to other B&B's in the area. We wanted to be close to town and not have to drive around much. It is conveniently located. We arrived in...

A must try!!! The Canfield House has a few rooms upstairs but by all means go to the restaurant for the FOOD and the ambience. This former casino in the 1800's is a classy place for a romantic meal. The spinach salad with soaked pears and bacon vinaigrette was mouth watering, spicy crabcakes had a chipolte sauce, delicious RI style...
