We stayed in the Rose Farm Inn during our first-ever trip to Block Island in late June, 2012. We booked the trip last-minute and this was the only inn with a room available, as all of the other inns (the quiet ones, not the big rowdy ones) had weddings that weekend. My husband and I have three young children and booked a three-night getaway for the two of us to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. The Inn is situated on a beautiful, peaceful property away from the louder scene in town, but it's walking distance to town and a pretty walk (not far at all). We also rented bikes from the on-site rental shop run by the owner's son in-law, and the bikes were in better condition than any of the other bike rentals we saw on the island. If you're going to Block Island to party and stay up late talking with friends, this isn't the inn for you. You'd be better off staying at one of the bigger hotels in town. If you're looking for a quiet getaway where you won't be disturbed, and where you will hear birds singing through the trees, you'll love Rose Farm. The only downside for us was the breakfast, hence the four stars instead of five. The inn doesn't have a kitchen and therefore can't serve a hot breakfast. If you're satisfied with cereal and bagels you'll be fine. We ended up eating a bagel at the inn in the mornings and then riding our bikes for a bit before sitting down to a big hot breakfast in town. We felt the price difference between this inn and the inns that do serve hot breakfasts made up for us having to buy breakfast elsewhere. The Atlantic Inn is just steps away and they serve a hot breakfast that you can purchase separately. Our room was clean, bed was comfortable, and water was good and hot. No complaints, just pleasant breezes and a chance to reconnect!
