Spacious lawns surround the inn and bicycle shop. Deer grazed in the grass at dawn! The room's furnishings were very fine. I saw the ocean from one window and rolling fields from our balcony. We enjoyed tea from the parlor of the farm house and the breakfast and breakfast room are wonderful, with wrap around windows affording an ocean view. Inn Keeper Judith and Mona who accepted my reservation were so accommodating as were they efficient and pleasant. There is a bicycle rack outside the inn. Bicycles were our only vehicles on Block Island, so that is cool, fitting, and memorable touch!
I told a friend that this is the best or one of the best places on the island. Would love to stay here again!
