Block Island is so beautiful it is meant to be enjoyed year round. Wanting a break from holiday hustle i booked 2 nights at the 1661 Inn Guest House. From the moment you arrive at the inn the owners/staff make you feel right at home. The inn is decorated, and it is just a nice quiet respite from mainland life. The Abrams/Draper family never fail with genuine hospitality. A hearty breakfast is offered, more than cereals and maybe 1 hot dish...this place offers made to order eggs, french toast, along with hot side dishes, variety of muffins/breads along with mimosas if you wish to indulge. Zoraida is a definite asset to the owners, preparing and serving those made to order eggs, always nice to see her! The welcome sign is always out on this property! The nicest people stay on these properties too, and very many of them are return guests. It is a pleasure to meet new people, and hopefully have the chance to run into them again on future visits. The quiet beauty of the island, the serenity of the surroundings make it a perfect getaway even in winter (see seals sunning themselves along the coastline). The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean...the Guest House offers phenomenal ocean views, but you will also find the same ocean views in most of the rooms at the inn itself. The island seems almost desolate this time of year, but that is fine by me. The island grocery makes wonderful hot or cold lunches/dinner, and if you hit the island at the right time you may also dine at The Beachhead restaurant and experience a delicious lobster mac n cheese (best I have ever had). Visit the island library, the reading room is cozy, comfortable and is impressive for this small island. So, for that simple getaway in winter, consider the 1661 Inn your home base, you will love it.
