What a great place it was! Perfect place to stay in BI! Close to the ferry, shops and the beach. Best homemade cookies ever! Great breakfast too. Ann the innkeeper was so nice, we loved hearing her stories. We definitely plan to go back there. My family and I absolutely loved it.

We have stayed at the Blue Dory twice and loved it both times. I do think that some of the rooms are getting somewhat tired looking and need to be given a facelift, but this really doesn't detract from this B&B's victorian charm. It is nicely located near town and the beach. No need for a car. Some rooms are... More

The Dory Cottage is steps away from the beach and old harbor. Our two yellow labs enjoyed the ocean swims and comfortable accommodations as much as we did. Breakfast was fabulous each morning and 5:30 wine and barnacle cookies are a must! Ann and team are fantastic and always available to answer questions or assist in making your stay outstanding!...

Second time to The Blue Dory. Love the inn, owner Ann is super nice. We enjoyed our stay!! I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who likes to relax, and listen to the ocean at night. The inn is walking distance to beaches, restaurants and shopping.

My husband, 9 year old daughter and 100 pound Rottweiler, Mr. Waffles, had a great time at the Blue Dory. I was relieved to find such a nice inn that would let us travel with our beloved pet. The staff at the Blue Dory Inn was exceptional accommodating. Ann was very welcoming and runs things efficiently. Lucy cooked an amazing... More

Room was on 3rd floor, Queen Anne, had AC and was privately tucked out of the way. The bed itself could really use a new mattress. Otherwise property overall was conveniently located to everything nearby shopping, dining, beach & bars.

The Blue Dory was cozy and located on the water but the best part was the people. Anne the owner is one of the most warm and interesting people. Her staff are wonderfully accommodating and breakfast is healthy and fresh. The location is perfect. We plan to return annually

The location of this b n b cannot be stressed enough. It's a great spot in the middle of town. They are pet friendly and offer a free breakfast and free wine. Their famous rocking chairs out front are perfect for people watching.

I was very fortunate to find Suite 1 of the Waverly Cottage available for the 4th of July holiday! Waverly is located two buildings away from the Blue Dory Inn (managed by the Blue Dory), and really gives you the feel of having your own home away from home in the middle of all the action on BI. It comes... More
