I stayed here in the Waverly suite this past summer with my grandparents and we loved it! The bed was huge and comfortable and the bathroom was also impressive. I loved the jacuzzi tub. It's also within walking distance to the ferry, restaurants, and shopping. I loved how it had a separate living room and bedroom, so there was privacy... More

We stayed at the Blue Dory near the end of the 2013 season. The location was excellent, at least during November. The inn is small, making it cozy for some and cramped for others. Different rooms shared the same temperature control, so our room was too cold one night and too hot the other. The furnishings were distressed by time... More

A very special place with town, ferry, beach all right at your door step. With owner Ann and her husband Marty so helpful on answering questions on where best to hike or bike or explore...and boy were they right! The work by chef Brian and crew for Thanksgiving was superb along with special musical talent for the occasion. Fabulous views... More

My husband and I just returned from Thanksgiving weekend at the Blue Dory. Since it was our first holiday away from our families, we weren't sure what to expect . We were thrilled beyond winds with our experience. We shared a magnificent feast, made new friends, relaxed, shopped and enjoyed great entertainment. We plan to return again with our family.... More

I am absolutely in LOVE with this Hotel. I should say Ann and Marty are the sweetest, such genuinely kind and warm folks. The rooms are gorgeous , beds couldn't be more comfortable.

When the calendar turns to November, it means one thing to us - time for another autumn excursion to Block Island to see our friends at The Blue Dory Inn. Ann and Marty (and Simon the cat!) truly understand and exceed the expectations of each individual guest, adding to the already enchanted ambience of Block Island. If you like homemade... More

The previous reviews say it all - Ann and Marty were wonderful and interesting hosts, the breakfasts and wine/cookies were perfect and the room was very comfortable. The location of the Blue Dory makes it easy to walk or bike ride to everything in town, as well as the ferry.
