I guess I'm not a B&B person. I like relaxing atmospheres like the next guy, but being put in a glorified attic and told its cozy and quaint? I don't think so. Following the advice of others on trip advisor, we got a "room" in the house behind the main house. Felt like the size of a large walk-in closet.... More

Dave has got it all. There's a carriage house for a "cottage" feel and inn rooms like a B&B. We took advantage of the gas grill and private deck for a dinner in as well as enjoying the hammocks and gardens. The breakfast is simple but good and the grounds are private and quiet without being too far from attractions.... More

We arrived in the early evening and Dave showed us our room. It was in the coach house overlooking the lovely meadow. It was quiet and we only heard traffic until 10. The bed was fine and the mini fridge between rooms was a nice addition since we brought our own beer and wine. We got a cab $12-15 (Rich's... More

I am the one who does all our planning for fabulous vacations, but this time my husband surprised me with a trip to Block Island-our first time. I was very apprehensive; however, he proved me wrong. On the other hand, I am not sure how much credit he should take: the Island Home was spotless, comfortable and cozy, serving hearty,... More

Block Island is a great place for a relaxing vacation...tourists are friendly and you have a secure & safe feeling there. Our stay at the Island Home Inn was excellent. The location is off the main harbor..so it is quiet and secluded, yet is a short walk to the beach, town and New Harbor. The owner Dave was extremely hospitable... More

I was late this year in scheduling my getaway to Block Is, and so was surprised that my usual B & B's were booked up. For once, I was delighted to have my routine altered, so that we could discover a new B&B. Dave, the host, is charming, as is the inn itself. We stayed in the little cottage behind... More

We had spent a week in Cape Cod and wanted a stop on our way to New York so decided to hop over to Block Island for a night - so glad we did! We walked up from the harbour which although just over a mile, was quite tiring as it was a hot day - so may be worth... More

My first piece of advise is to not go through a third party booking agency. There are too many lines of communication and your reservation is more vulnerable to getting screwed up. So that's what happened to us. We were not listed as guests at the BnB on our first night that we arrived - only our second night. Dave,... More

First, a travel warning in getting to the Island Home Inn - Google Maps is wrong about its location. When you get to the intersection of Ocean and Beach Ave, turn LEFT, not right like Google Maps says. It's the first driveway on the right. Okay, that one negative thing out of the way, my wife and I had a... More
