The experience was acceptable, but no more than that. The room itself was relatively clean, with some cobwebs and general dust. The sheets and towels were clean, but threadbare and itchy. The biggest problem is the lack of air flow in the rooms. Even with all the windows open, and the window above the door to the hallway, the air... More

The Sullivan House is a wonderful property that has built a great reputation over the years. I was surprised to read your review; especially since no one who has stayed with us this season has raised any of the issues you mention. We would love to discus your experience with you; please give us a call. Earlier in the year,... More

I used to go to BI by yacht when I was about 18-20 years old, stayed at Paine's Dock back then. I'm over 50 now...I have always loved and admired The Sullivan House for its pristine location perched high on a hill over looking the ocean from the front and the bay (and Paine's Marina) from the back. The Fred... More

Had a great 3 day weekend at the Sullivan House. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the view was AMAZING. Linda was the sweetest, kindest person on the planet and she makes a delicious breakfast. It has a perfect location in the center of the island. Walk across the street to the beach or a short distance to town. We... More

My husband and I got married at the Sullivan house in June and it was PERFECT. Sean is amazing, the setting is beautiful, and we couldn't have had a more perfect day. The tent set up was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff at the Sullivan House was so accommodating and made our wedding day stress free and... More

My husband and I attended my cousin's wedding this past weekend at Block Island. The wedding was held at the Sullivan House in their outside tent. The food was fabulous. The staff went above and beyond to assist the wedding guests. The bride and groom also provided a brunch the following day for all of us staying at Block. Again... More

Best kept secret in town! We've been coming to black iron for many years now. This is the first time we stayed at the Sullivan House because a friend commended it.The breakfasts are excellent and Carolina makes the best cheese omlets!

My husband and I got married at the Sullivan House on September 1, 2012. It was our DREAM wedding spot - what could be better than views of the Atlantic and the pond from every direction? The staff couldn't have been more accommodating - Sean & Rosalie were by far complete rock stars when it came to the house and... More

I was recently here for a wedding and overall the place was very nice.. Stayed at the B&B for 2 nights. But what good would a review be if I didn't give some negatives. First day was very hot and the room was an oven. I get the no a/c but the room I was in didn't even have a... More

The Sullivan House is normally booked for events, but my family and I were extremely lucky to happen upon a weekend with openings. Everything surpassed our expectations - the inn's gorgeous architecture, unique interior filled with beautiful Irish antiques, the incomparable views, fabulous breakfast, comfortable beds... The innkeeper was extremely friendly and accommodating... A truly wonderful experience.
