From the second we pulled up with our luggage to the day we left, the staff treated us like guests in their home. They were so welcoming, friendly, helpful and fun! In addition, the private balcony gave us an amazing view of the harbor, Ballard's and the Newport bridge (at night). The location couldn't be better, as we were within walking distance from the beach, restaurants, shops and rental mopeds and bikes. Some reviews showed concern about the lack of A/C and a TV. The fact is Block Island gets an amazing breeze that cools down the island at night and the room was comfortable and we still had to use the covers in August. The lack of TV is something that is more of a pleasure than an inconvenience. Gabrielle made our stay so amazing and was so thrilled for us that we got engaged on Block Island!
We loved our time at the Inn and will stay here again as well as recommend it to family and friends!
