Stay Overnight In A 200-Year-Old Mansion At Rhode Island’s Samuel Church Estate
In the late 1700s, a local merchant named Samuel Church settled in the Adamsville area. He must have done quite well there, because in 1814, he had a magnificent mansion built that remains one of the most prominent homes in the area to this day. And if you’re so inclined, you’re welcome to spend the night there.
The current owners purchased the historic Samuel Church Estate in 2016.
They got to work right away, remodeling and restoring the property to its original splendor.
The home is now used as a vacation rental through Airbnb, and it's absolutely magnificent.
The main living room features the original built-ins and original restored hardwood floors.
The kitchen is all brand new, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
And it's well-stocked with everything you'll need to cook a gourmet meal.
Gather around the formal dining table for dinner with your family.
One family rents this place every Thanksgiving, which is absolutely brilliant.
The house has four bedrooms and seven beds, with plenty of room for up to 11 guests.
And everyone will have plenty of space.
There are 2.5 bathrooms in the home, but you'll definitely want to take a nice bath in the master bathroom's soaking tub at least once.
There's even a fireplace in here.
Step outside and you'll see The Spite Tower, which is the subject of some local lore.
In 1905, Thaddeus Church bequeathed Samuel’s estate to his great-niece, Claudia, and her husband, Dr. Hathaway. Legend has it that Dr. Hathaway and his good friend, Abraham Manchester, got into quite a dispute. Dr. Hathaway had this tower built out of spite to block Manchester's view of his home from his store, causing him to miss his cues that dinner was ready. There's probably not much truth to this tale, but i's fun, nonetheless.
This gorgeous home rents on Airbnb for $340 - $450 per night, depending on the time of year.
And honestly, for this much space, history, and beautiful surroundings, that's a steal.
