This place exceeded all of our expectations! First I would like to start off by commending the two sisters running this inn for all their hard work. They turned the inn into a cozy, well kept, friendly, inviting inn. The inn itself is one of the only inns on Block Island with AIR CONDITIONING! Score! When my boyfriend and I began looking for a place to stay over the weekend of Aug 9-12 we were booking during a heat wave back home and couldn’t imagine staying at a place without it. I called inn after inn hotel after hotel and besides not having any vacancy no one had AC. When the girl renovated the inn they added industrial AC’s to the rooms (not window units like the other inns claiming to have AC). I’m not sure if all the rooms have AC so make sure to ask when booking.
Besides the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms these two sisters really try to accommodate their guests. When we booked it was a holiday weekend. Hardly anywhere had vacancy. The girls at the inn had two separate rooms broken up over the four days that they were able to offer us. At first we weren’t too excited about having to switch from one room the first night two another next two. Later we realized we got to experience the stay in two very different rooms. After the first night the girls told us to pack up our belongings and they would move it from one room to the other for us, which they did. Every night around 5pm the girls place wine and a light appetizer out for their guest in a common area for a happy hour. Every morning when you wake up you can go downstairs into the kitchenette area and enjoy a homemade breakfast prepared by the two sisters. They made omelets, Mexican egg omelet, breakfast burritos, oatmeal blueberry bake, bagels, crepes, and always had fresh fruit. Definitely satisfying if you’re looking for a “little something” to start your day.
The inn itself is located within walking distance to basically everything. The ferry is right around the corner, restaurants and bars are within walking distance, and there is also a market. The liquor store is right around the corner steps within walking distance. The market and liquor store came in handy when we ran out of food, alcohol, and ice which we brought across the island with us in our coolers. There is also a small dorm sized refrigerator in the common area to store some food or beverages in as well.
For days you want to go to the beach the two sisters have provided a variety of beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, footballs, whiffle ball bats and more for their guest to take with them to enjoy their day. There is also FREE parking if you bring your vehicle. The day we departed check-out time was at 11am. There was a place to store all of our belongings while we explored the islands more before heading off to the Ferry.
All in all I am overly satisfied and surprised with this place and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to spend the weekend on Block Island.
