“A last minute surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

A last minute trip to the island for the 4th of July--rented a room in the sister house, the Sterling House. By Block Island standards--this was a gem! Air Conditioning, a comfortable king size bed, our own Adirondack chairs and a small private deck. Close enough to town to walk (beware...High Street, is uphill and a little daunting in the heat!)...but its very walkable, even with beach chairs and luggage. Only about 5 minutes from the ferry dock, it was wonderful to be just outside of town--it was quieter, we had our own prime spot to see the fireworks! There was a small continental breakfast and the managers were very congenial and hospitable!

Room Tip: If you've ever been to Block Island before--you'll know that simply finding a room with AC i...

In August 2011, we celebrated my mom's 70th birthday in Block Island. We stayed at the Windrose House and another of their rentals on site. The accommodations were great, convenient, and perfect for a family gathering. I would strongly recommend this place and their other rentals and will definitely return!

Just spent 3 nights at the Bellevue House with my wife and three kids. The house is exactly as advertised - old/dated but well kept, and our floor easily slept all of us (in three rooms and common kitchen, two private bathrooms). Truly like the fact that we didn't need to split up the family as we usually did across separate hotel rooms.

Location was an easy/safe walk into town, with General Store across the street that we made good use of. Office staff extremely helpful/friendly. Stands to lock-up bikes at night.

Only downside is that we were there at the end of the season, and the "seasonal help" on the island apparently live dorm style across the street. Got very noisy one night till very late, but shouldn't be an issue on a normal night.

TERRIFIC value for the price.

We rented rooms in both the windrose and Bellevue homes which are right next to each other. The windrose is way nicer and more up to date. Overall I would def stay here again. Location is great.

Just spent a wonderful week with the family and we hope to return next summer. The place was very clean and the view from every window was exceptional! We had ocean views and island views not to mention the fabulous sunrise. The staff was extremely accomodating and friendly. It is set on a hilltop and beautiful breezes kept us comfortable so no need for air conditioning. We were on the 3rd floor which is why we were afforded the cross breeze and it comes equipped with fans in each room. The only downside was having to do the stairs but it was a wonderful place. Recently redone! It is a short walk to town so no need to drive unless you want to go to a beach on the other side of town.

The staff is very unaccommodating and the building is run down. The photos are not a true representation of this property. There are so many nicer B&Bs on Block Island, this should only be last resort. The floors are sticky, the furniture smells. The management there should put more effort into the property if they want people to book here.
