We really ejoyed our winter visit to Block Island the weekend of February 16. During our first night the island was rocked by a winter storm. The surprise for us was that with the fresh snow the Block Island views became more beautiful and the air became crisp & refreshing! Perfect for a hike! The folks at the 1661 were wonderful. Our room was warm and nicely decorated. The breakfast buffet with a view was a great way to start each day! We'll be back next year. The short walk to the ferry was very convenient.
