We stayed at the Old Town Inn recently. We came by bicycle on the ferry, and then rode to the Inn, which is a mile from downtown. Dave and Lucinda were very accommodating and let us check in early since our room was ready before check-in. Nice 4 acre property and great breakfast, felt right at home. We would stay... More

We have visited Block Island many times, this was our first stay away from town center. What an incredible experience! It truly is an easy one mile walk to town. We rented a moped for the duration of our stay and enjoyed every adventure we set out to! Truly peaceful location and a large property we really enjoyed. Lucinda and... More

This Inn is beautiful, quaint, peaceful, and the breakfast is delicious. My husband and I spent our one year anniversary here. It was the perfect spot. Lucinda, is incredibly welcoming and gracious! She always had suggestions on what to do, eat, and see. An outdoor shower, along with a wonderful outdoor seating area to take in all the stars is... More

From the first reservation experience through our weeklong stay, staying at the old town in was like visiting friends in the country. Lucinda gave us excellent advice from the very start by telling us to be sure to bring our car which we thought was not a necessity (it is) to dinner reservations and ideas for activities during our stay....

Second visit to the Old Town Inn. After some lesser experiences at other BI accommodations was grateful to find this gem. Welcoming and accommodating hosts, a filling and delicious hot/cold breakfast included. Beautiful and relaxing back deck and expansive lawn that is perfect for breakfast or evening cocktails--a common fridge allows you to keep some supplies on hand. Rooms are... More

My wife and I chose The Old Town Inn after much research. Turned out to be excellent choice. We stayed 3 nights celebrating our anniversary in a spacious light filled room overlooking a beautiful serene property. Lucinda and Dave could not have been more accommodating hosts. Dave's homemade baked goods each morning added a special touch. Lucinda had great recommendations... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Old Town Inn since its opening in 2002. Its owners have run it with steady, mature hands since day one. Lucinda and David Morrison understand what their target users need. The inn is still what it has been from the start, a tranquil retreat on a peaceable island. The television in... More

My husband and I have been coming to The Old Town Inn for over ten years and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The location is ideal: within walking distance to Old and New Harbors, a bike ride to great beaches, hiking trails and magnificent views. The Inn itself is situated on 4 beautifully landscaped acres and is tastefully... More

My daughter and I stayed here 2 nights, and found our room large, bright and airy and the beds very comfortable. Dave's breakfasts were wonderful and Lucinda very knowledgeable and helpful.. She steered us in the right direction for dinners, bike rentals, and even helped us make a last minute change in ferry plans doable..... It was a great experience.

We have returned to the Old Town Inn for the fifth consecutive year now. We fell in love the first time and have been back every since. The inn keepers are wonderful people and we feel like it is a family reunion when we return. We feel like its our home away from home. To us it is a 5... More
