This was our first trip to BI and "The Island Home Inn" was a lucky find, nicely situated between both harbors yet private at the same time. Dave, the proprietor, greeted us as if we were family. The "Sundrop Room" upstairs in the back building was so quaint and cozy with fantastic views from our private deck. Breakfast was delicious... More

Our 1st visit to BIRI was at the end of September and we had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and easily permitted touring on mopeds and bikes. We chose the Island Home Inn for its quieter location and views from the upstairs rooms. We were very happy with our choice and found Dave to be a helpful but... More

Just got back from a spur-of-the-moment and my first real visit to Block Island: stayed at the Island Home Inn and had a wonderful time. I'm not a B&B person at all -- for one, I am not a morning person and I don't like nor normally eat breakfast, so I'm a tough sell -- but in this case, the... More

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
