“Best B&B”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

My wife and I found this place because we were going to Foxboro for a George Strait concert. It was approx. 45 minute drive which was perfect.
The property is very well kept with pool and tennis court.
We were greeted with a big welcome from Bill and his lovely wife Eleanora.
Bill is a very funny man that could do stand up for a living.
It helps that he is a plumber from Long Island, so he has the stories!

The food and hospitality were outstanding.
The inn is immaculate and tastefully decorated.

Great Inn!
Great people!

Room Tip: Ask Bill. He is as honest as they come.

We are so glad we were able to accommodate your stay for the concert in Foxboro. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our pool, tennis and my husbands humor. He still makes me laugh after all these years. Laughing is healthy, we look forward to your return for more laughter.

We have just spent 2 wonderful
nights at this historic inn and
if you want a stress reliever, romantic few days or just a
peaceful getaway, this is the
place for you!
Bill and Eleonora (innkeepers and
owners) have created the best
B&B over the past 23 years and
their "Labor of Love " is evident throughout this gorgeous property.
Their attention to detail is incredible
throughout the house and barn.
Add wonderful breakfasts, high end bath products, cheese
tray on arrival, cookies, soft drinks,
coffee, tea and all the water you want along with immaculate rooms
with charm galore and you'll never
want to leave.

The JH Inn is a Select Registry Inn. For those who don't know, the Select Registry is like the Michelin Guide System in Europe. Inns and B&B's must pass rigorous quality, comfort and hospitality Reviews to be included in the Select Registry My wife and I have stayed at several of the Select Registry inns in the North East and were once again delighted at the atmosphere, comfort cleanliness and hospitality of this Jewel of the Registry. Bill and Eleanor are true inn keepers. You can feel the joy and warmth they bring to this vocation from the moment you step out of your car. The furnishings and decor are tasteful, elegant and eclectic at the same time. It feels more like you are visiting old friends than merely spending a few nights away from home. Facilities include tennis, swimming pool, a great game room with billiards, ping pong, modern entertainment center and beautiful views of the surroundings from the great lawn adjacent to the Inn facility. Not to be missed!

Third stay at the Jacob Hill Inn, not disappointed. Bill and Eleonra are gracious hosts.
Accommodations are great. One of the few B&Bs with a pool.
Breakfasts are prepared with a lot of care and feeling. Of course the welcoming wine is an added touch of class. Will return again.

Room Tip: Vanderbilt suite is very good along with the providence and the boston

My wife and I spent three nights at the Jacob Hill Inn in Sekonk, Massachusetts. Our stay was very enjoyable. Bill and Eleanora met us when we came in, provided a wonderful welcome with a tour of the Inn, and provided us with a glass of wine and a cheese platter for later. The in was built in 1723 and had been updated for a modern experience. The grounds were beautiful, and we had wonderful breakfasts and met some very friendly people from around the world. Bill and Eleanora provided useful tips on restaurants and directions how to get to various places. The rooms were tastefully decorated and we had plenty of room. The chocolate cookies and pieces of chocolate on our pillows at night were welcomed.

The Jacob Hill Inn is truly one of the best bed and breakfasts that we have stayed in around the US. We were treated like family, and we certainly would highly recommend it and we would return if in the area.

Bruce and Janet

Room Tip: The Tiffany was a very nice room .

We loved staying at the Jacob Hill Inn! As soon as we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Bill and given a tour of this lovely property. Our room was large, beautiful and perfect and even had a mural of the Inn and surroundings. The bed was super comfortable! The breakfast was delicious and served in the beautifully renovated barn that was filled with artfully arranged antique implements and decorations. We had many morning lively discussions with both Bill and Eleonora on a multitude of engaging subjects.They are both charming and caring hosts who helped us plan our days and offered excellent suggestions that enhanced our trip greatly. The inn location is perfect for exploring Providence and Newport. It is really close to Providence yet in a peaceful rural setting so we experienced the best of both worlds. We will definitely return to this idyllic spot!
