An oasis in the city. 

A lovely 1880's private studio loft with 1 bath waiting to host friendly people. With beautiful brick walls, a new bathroom, new breakfast/cocktail/desk area, and tall wooden beamed ceilings. We tried to maintain the charm and simplicity of the original mill. You'll have a private entrance with lockbox access, cozy bright studio room, stocked coffee maker along with a variety of teas, refrigerator and microwave. Iron and ironing pad provided. Bright bathroom with shower, plenty of clean towels and blow dryer. 1 Queen Bed with nice sheets and coverlet. TV with access to many popular cable channels and the option of connecting to your Netflix or Amazon Prime Account. Our historic renovated mill building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in the neighborhood of Olneyville. Our area of Olneyville is in the beginning stages of urban renewal (no Starbucks). Many of the surrounding mill buildings not yet renovated are currently occupied by an array of artists and musicians. Think Soho in the 80's. It is an edgy, transitional location within walking distance to the adjacent restaurants, galleries and nightlife of the West End and Federal Hill. 3 Min. walk to the Bus in Olneyville square will take you around town. Centrally located. 7 min. drive to downtown, the eastside, and everything else Providence has to offer.

Wow! this sanctuary...

“WOW! this sanctuary of a property is a hidden gem and super convenient location. When I arrived Peter was just leaving but he took time to show me the Aqua studio which was exactly as how the photos show: exquisite, minimalist and chic decor, inside this gorgeous historic building with mile long beams, giant windows that bathe in light the beautiful handmade creations of the most brilliant warmest of hosts Peter and Jim.

We loved this loft.

Everything I'd hoped for… 

“Jim and Peter are wonderful hosts and their place is everything I'd hoped for as a weekend getaway. In fact, I could've stayed the whole week, it was so comfortable. Clean and tidy, well designed - you can tell a lot of thought about their guests comfort went into the design of their rooms. Peter gave us great tips for places to dine, visit, etc. Having been an bnb host myself, I know the enthusiasm of the hosts matter and Jim and Peter seem happy to engage their guests while also providing lots of privacy. A+!”

The Dye House Loft Building

Dye House Lofts 46 Dike St
Built in 1880

Built in 1880, the building was the former dye house for the Weybosset Mills and is on the national register of historic places. The 5,000 sq. ft, one-and-one-half-story building has windows on both sides that allow natural light into the building throughout the day. It is an inspiring space that is located near wonderful restaurants and nightlife. We have tastefully renovated the entire mill with a very modern and comfortable aesthetic.




Leave hustle and bustle behind.

Dye House Lofts. A place to call home when you visit Providence.
