Good points: relatively reasonable prices for Block Island offerings; good location just a few block from the harbor but far enough away that the noise of mopeds and such do not bother you; Rooms are clean; Nice baked goods at breakfast. Disappointing points: VERY small common area, which meant that besides eating your breakfast at the single table in this one small room, there wasn't much other space to play games, read, or just talk with others. The innkeeper lives on the premises and this is her space too, so I felt cramped and as if I was encroaching on her space. There is only one loveseat in the common room, so it just didn't allow for that lingering conversation, or curling up with a book that I usually love in B&Bs.
