My friend and I visited Block island last month and were quite disappointed in our room because it was not clean, the bathroom vinyl floor was coming up, and the rug had many stains, and was very dirty; the lighting in our room was so poor we could not read. Also, we only saw the innkeepers the first day we... More

People have mentioned the views for good reason...the vistas are extraordinary. We never tired from looking out on the harbor or the ocean. The other guests were laid back and easy-going as vacationers to Block Island as it should be. It’s a short walk to the beach and a longer walk to town. The cab to town is about $11... More

Just back from a perfect week on BI! My sister got married at The Sullivan House - traveled all the way from San Diego which was kind of an inconvenience at first, but when I got there I was blown away! The views are incredible - like a movie set. I stayed at The Harbor House for a week, which... More

I was recently part of a wedding that took place at the sullivan and houeses associated with the sullivan house, the sullivan house itself is very nice and the views are amazing although it is hard to find a bad view when on Block Island. the grooms men were in one house and parents/relatives were in two others. the surrounding...

I was married at The Sullivan House. It was better than any dream I could have imagined. All of our families and friends traveled in for the wedding, so we planned 3 events in the tent set-up right outside of The Sullivan House. On Thursday, we had a family only dinner. Friday night was a huge rehearsal dinner. Saturday was... More

When you sail in to Block Island you see several beautiful homes set atop a few hills in the distance. They are so alluring and punctuate the beauty of the Island. These are the grounds of the Sullivan House. It is simply the best place to stay on the island. It's conveniently located right off of New Harbour and yet... More

This place is perfect. The grounds, views, house are stunning and it was one of the most relaxing and peaceful vacations we've had in a long, long time. The staff is great and the place has a general low-key, comfortable feel to it, which is exactly what you want when you're at a place like Block Island.

I have just returned from a fantastic few days on Block Island. What a really great place. We stayed at one of the island landmarks - The Sullivan House. The location was absolutley perfect - looking out on the harbor on one side and looking at the ocean the other. Wow! The Inn itself was very quaint and charming. The... More

What a pleasure to spend time in this sweet and historic inn. My husband and I loved every moment we spent on Block Island, and it was mostly the hospitality of our hosts that made the difference. Little details like the simple yet delicious breakfast buffet to the antique lace curtains framing the expansive views of the harbor from our... More

We could not agree more with the August 2007 reviewer. The Sullivan House is perfectly located but I have never received shoddier treatment in my life. No actual person ever appeared to greet us or check on us--we were greeted with a note, that's all. We never received any housekeeping services. Although the house and its views are indeed beautiful,... More
