This was our first trip to Block Island and we had no idea where to stay or what to do. The Blue Dory Inn had been recommended by two different people as a great location with comfy accommodations, lovely breakfasts and a delightful late afternoon nosh. It was a perfectly charming experience from check in to departure. The room was... More

Will be back again for sure! Very homey and welcoming. 5:30 wine & cheese in the parlor, and a second-to-none homemade breakfast in the morning were just icing on the cake. Room was so charming, neat, and clean. Perfect location central to shops, restaurants, & beaches.

Our weekend away was a truly wonderful experience starting with the understanding, knowledgeable and very accommodating women at the Blue Dory Inn. Reservations were simple, check in was great, and our room was the perfect mix of old charm and the comforts one expects from a B&B. The location really can't be beat- it's right around the corner from many... More

If you haven't been to Block Island, you are in for a treat. We have been going there for almost 30 years. In the early years we sailed but now we stay in B & Bs or in Inns. This is the first time I stayed off season. We went the weekend after Columbus Day. What a surprise! Our Cottage... More

The sounds of the waves in bed... The hot tub... Breakfast in the tea room with piano music... Evening wine, hors d'oeuvres and cookies in the parlor... Steps from shops, restaurants, the beach, bike and moped rentals... A walk from the ferry (leave your car on the mainland)... Ann is like an on-site trip planner! She's been doing this for... More

We arrived in the afternoon and received a brief tour from Ann. Our room was clean and quaint. Breakfast was simple but wonderful. Best scrambled eggs! The Inn's location was just perfect to walk to all the shops and restaurants we wanted to visit. We would definitely recommend and will certainly come back.

The Blue Dory Inn is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast you can walk to from the Ferry. We stayed in a Waverly cottage that had balconies in the front and back. The view of the bluffs is awesome! The rooms are warm and welcoming. Ann, the innkeeper, is charming. In the afternoon we would meet in the lounge for wine,... More

I posted a question on Facebook about places to stay on Block Island and at least 4 people suggested the Blue Dory Inn. The location is about a five-minute walk from the ferry. The innkeeper, Ann, greeted us warmly. It was early afternoon and the room was ready. The third floor room was adequate although there wasn't a place to... More
