My husband and I just returned from our Block Island vacation at The Island Home and already want to go back! The personable innkeeper, Dave Chieffo goes out of his way to think of everything possible to make your vacation absolutely perfect; the accommodations were lovely, breakfast was wonderful and healthy and there is wine and cheese at 5:00 on the front porch - a great time for guests to share their day's experiences and restaurant reviews. The rooms are spacious, ultra-clean and comfortable and furnished with "non-stuffy" antiques...it is a casual Victorian beach house that calls to you to kick off your shoes and take a load off. It is also one of the only inns on Block Island that has air-conditioning (yeah, yeah, some say "you don't NEED it" but we are two native New Yorkers and beg to differ). There is a basket of beach towels on the front porch for the guests' use, which makes it real easy to just grab your suit, a towel and go - the beach is right down the block! We had a lovely room and woke up each morning to a beautiful and tranquil view of New Harbor. Not only is this treasure of an inn located just a block from one of the best beaches on Block Island, it is also very convenient to all other points of interest as well. This is my 13th season at The Island Home and we have never taken a car over...everything is walking distance from your door!
I would recommend a vacation getaway at this venue wholeheartedly, you will not be disappointed; in fact, I have every confidence you will become a "regular" like we have, booking the same week each year and revisiting with other repeat guests from the year before! As I said, I have been coming to this inn for 13 years and it has been the "lucky 13" - I could not imagine spending my vacation anyplace else on Block Island but The Island Home.
