I rented this unit last summer with my husband, our two children age 20 and 17, 2 of their friends and our golden retriever. The Cottage was roomy and clean. We loved the location on the beach and right in the town. We took early morning and late night walks on the beach with our dog. The cottage is a... More

We stayed two nights here - quaint little Inn - hostess was very friendly. Had wine and cookies at night and the wine was good wine! You can walk from here to everyplace in the town. Felt very safe walking the town at night. Our last day we just lounged on the beach at the Inn, they provided chairs and... More

Stayed in the Doll House at Blue Dory Inn over Thanksgiving - what an outstanding stay! The location is fantastic and walking distance to just about everything. The Thanksgiving feast prepared by Chef Brian was exceptional. The owner, Ann, is a lovely woman who very clearly loves what she does and loves her guests, and it shows.

We only had one night, but the room was comfortable, the jacuzzi relaxing, and the host accommodating. All in all, we had a great, albeit short visit to the island and we'll be back to stay at the Blue Dory.

The Blue Dory Inn has an amazing location. Less than a 5 minute walk from the ferry dock and minutes to some of the best restaurants on the island. The beach is right there as well. Traveling off season to Block Island, we knew that there wouldn't be a lot open. Although it was disappointing that a lot of the... More

My husband and I attended a wedding in Block Island and chose this place to stay because of the location. We did not have a car, so it was very convenient that it is a 5 minute walk from the ferry. It also near some stores and restaurants. Anne was very welcoming and warm. The place is beautiful. We stayed... More

Ann is the perfect hostess in her beautiful, romantic inn. Lida does a wonderful job with breakfast and 5:30 wine service. The inn is clean, quiet, and friendly. Very close to the ferry and steps to the beach. This is our second year visiting in October after the island calms down from the summer crowds. We look forward to many... More

My husband and I celebrated our belated 25th wedding anniversary at the Blue Dory Inn and it was perfect. We stayed in Cupid's Corner and everything about it was just what we needed. From the large, comfy king bed to the sumptuous jacuzzi tub, we couldn't have been more comfortable. Ann Law pulls out all the stops. There is a... More
