From the warm welcome to the delicious breakfasts to the friendly wine and appetizer hour - our stay at the Blue Dory Inn was wonderful. The location is ideal with the town and restaurants out the front door and Crescent Beach out the back door. The rooms are clean, the bed comfortable, and the shower had plenty of hot water....

This is a beautifully quaint inn, completely furnished and decorated in authentic Victorian style! Likewise, the owner and hostess, Ann, is simply charming. The wine and hors d'oeuvres hour in the afternoon is a wonderful chance to talk with Ann and your fellow guests. Ann's signature "barnacle cookies" are not to be missed! Similarly, the breakfast served in the tea... More

The Blue Dory Inn was exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and the location was perfect! Plus, wine and cheese hour was amazing, and the cookies were absolutely delicious. Breakfast was also much bigger than most hotel breakfasts, and the housekeeper even offered to make us eggs! I will... More

Graced by windows facing Block Island Sound, Dory Cottage is sweet, charming and sparkling clean, ideal for two people, The kitchen is equipped with a stove, fridge, microwave, pots, pans, china and silverware.

What a treat it was to stay here. My husband and I had or very own cottage! They had a lovely wine and cheese hour which was absolutely yummy. Plus we had a chance to meet the other guests! From the check in and check out process everyone was super sweet.

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

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.
