We stayed at Avonlea, Jewel of the Sea. It was our fist time there. We have stayed at the Blue Dory before but never at the Avonlea. My husband and I have stayed on BI for our anniversary many times over the last 13 years and we both agree that this was the best. The location is perfect right on... More

We have stayed here many times. The inn is right in town, near all the great restaurants and shops. It is on the most beautiful beach. The views from the porch are amazing. The rooms are all very nice. The innkeepers are awesome! Michael makes the best breakfast! SHHHHH! Don't tell too many people!

The Inn keepers at the Avonlea were exceptional!! They were very accommodating to our girlfriends getaway. The breakfast was fantastic and way above the expected usuals. As was the cocktail hour. Compliments to the chef!! They met our every need, and made us feel very relaxed. We already booked for next year!

The Avonlea is located directly on a magnificent beach. The large porch that you sit on for breakfast and evening wine is facing this beach. The location is perfect. My room, the emerald, had windows on 3 walls and several of them faced the ocean. We actually watched the sunrise from our bed! You can hear the music from the... More

Outstanding B&B with fabulous location on the beach in BI. A walk down to the beach and conveniently located to all of the restaurants and bars and shopping in the old harbor area. Wonderful hosts. We had a great experience, although the room can be noisy late at night from the nearby bars .

Listening to the surf lulled us to sleep each night. And walking out the door to the beach was very convenient. Can't wait to go back and re-live an unforgettable stay. Fortunately, the weather was nice every day.

Another great stay on Block for 4th of July weekend. New innkeepers are amazing .... same service ....and new friends !!! The afternoon cookies are to die for .... and you have to get them hot out of the oven. Close to all amenities and walking distance from town. The views are second to none on the island !!!

We loved the Avonlea! Mike and Kristin did a great job! The meals were awesome, and they were so easy to deal with. You really can't beat the location, as your within walking distance of most major restaurants on the island. Plus, there is a gorgeous back deck overlooking the ocean where happy hour is served. We'd really recommend it... More

My wife and I just returned from another great stay at the Avonlea Inn on Block Island ... one of our favorite places, especially the porch overlooking the beach! New innkeepers Kristen and Michael maintained the tradition of terrific hospitality. They were helpful and fun, and we loved that they mingled with guests during breakfast and the "wine and cheese...

This place is very nice with amazing views. Super close to town and just walk away from the beach! The staff are super friendly and go above and beyond. Only problem was the music from the 3 kittens bar nextdoor but was out of their control, did however buy us a fan so we could close our windows! Couldnt ask... More
