Although we were out of season this made a perfect respite from our hectic tour of New England. We had the choice of several rooms as there was only one other couple there at the time and our room was very pretty with a four poster bed too. The ensuite was small but adequate and breakfast was amazing with plenty... More

This was my first stay at the Blue Dory Inn and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was great, clean and comfy, the staff friendly and helpful. We came off season and they were very helpful in finding places that were still open. The wine and cheese offering in the afternoon was delightful (I know it sounds corny but it's... More

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

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
