Great place to stay. The Doll House offers small, simple accommodation, with excellent access to the ocean and views out my bedroom window. Super accomodating for my dog as well. Would highly recommend.

The inn was ideally located to all the key shops and restaurants in Old Harbor. The beach was steps away. Ann was very helpful and accommodating and gave great suggestions regarding where to eat and what to see. We biked most of the island over the course of our stay and it was delightful to come back to the lovely... More

Perfect location- close walking distance to the ferry, downtown restaurants and right on the beach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed in one of the cottages and loved the privacy and convenience it offered.

We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Dory and definitely plan to return! The location couldn't be better and the rooms are very sweet. We stayed in Cupid's Corner which had a lovely sky light with some ocean views and sounds.

Unfortunately, we did not have the best experience at the Blue Dory Inn. I went with one of my friends and my sweet 5 month old Goldendoodle puppy. She is a very, very well behaved puppy. When we walked in, we were barely greeted at all. The welcome was very cold. We decided to ignore and get settled into our... More

Because of the high demand for pet appropriate accommodations, we do accept pets in certain rooms, cottages and suites. However, barking dogs are very disturbing for our other guests, therefore, we ask that if a pet is barking the owner not leave the pet unattended in the room. More

There are so many complaints to be made but the biggest ones are listed below: My daughter required a special diet which they were aware of and said it would be no problem to meet yet they failed to meet her needs the whole stay. The fire alarm went off 3 times in our 5 days which brought the firemen... More

We are happy to provide special items for our guests like eggbeaters, soy milk, almond milk, etc., however, it is difficult to know what to provide if our guests are not specific about their needs. More

A lovely place with welcoming owners. We stayed here in the top floor attic room- tiny but cozy and a great view from the angled skylight- we even could see the sunset from our room. It's right downtown, but not on the super-busy street, so probably a little quieter- except for the sound of the surf from our open window.... More

We were traveling to Block Island for a wedding, but the day before the trip, my dog was injured, and the vet told us he needed constant care. We were staying at the National Hotel, but they didn't allow dogs. We called the Blue Dory and not only did Ann accommodate my last minute reservation, she gave me a fantastic... More

Needless to say, we were delighted to be of service. We have added some new "pet appropriate" rooms to meet the growing demand for pet accommodations. More

Although we had a very wet stay on BI we totally enjoyed our stay at the Blue Dory. Such a comfortable, CLEAN, and delicious experience. We have some dietary restrictions so it is not always easy to find a place to stay. The Blue Dory staff had no problem with our requests. We will definitely be staying there again.

My husband and I spent a weekend here with our parents. We got 3 rooms that all had outdoor access (tea house, doll house and abalone). We had a wonderful time! The tea house and doll house were stand alone and not attached to the main building, gave them a little more private feeling. Anne was very friendly and helped... More
