Stayed at the blue dory for a night and it was the perfect place to stay! It is less than a 5 minute walk from the ferry and right in the downtown area by all the great restaurants and shops. Great access to the beach right behind the bed and breakfast along with free beach chairs. Breakfast was a selection... More

Walk down a short path and you are on crescent beach( more relaxing beach then Ballard 's, especially if you get there early,)One of the highlights of hotel is being able to walk downstairs to grab a cup of coffee and or breakfast and walk out to beach , sitting on chairs...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Arabelline room for our one-year anniversary, and we had a great time. The room was a nice size, and this was one of the few rooms with A/C, private bathroom and a King Bed we could find at a reasonable price. The location was also great. It was just steps away from a... More

The Blue Dory is a lovely place to stay. It is near everything and right on the beach. The use of beach chairs and towels are an added bonus. Ann cannot do enough to ensure your stay is enjoyable. The afternoon wine is also nice, allowing you to chat with other guests. The only thing I wish I knew was... More

Very expensive for this type of b&b. Linens were old and creepy. Not clean. Mattress on Bed very old and uncomfortable. We did not sleep well. For these prices they should have white, clean sheets and comforters. Not old ratty linens. Lovely inn keeper Breakfast was wonderful We will not stay here again!

We stayed in the there a few weeks ago in the Rose Wind room and have to say we were very disappointed. The website says the room has ". . . lovely carved headboard, pretty lace curtains." Yes, that is true and pretty much the best qualities of the room. We actually did a double take in disbelief when we... More

My daughter. her golden retriever, my husband and I stayed three lovely nights at The Blue Dory Inn. Our accommodations were cozy and comfortable. Our hostess Ann was welcoming, helpful and gracious. The breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared and presented. The evening reception was a nice opportunity to meet other guests. I cannot not even think of anything that... More

Just returned from our stay at the Blue Dory Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The location can't be beat; just steps away from Crescent Beach, the ferry, all the shops, lots of restaurants. Ann and the entire staff were helpful and always friendly. I wish I had gotten the name of the woman who cooks breakfast and seems to... More

We had so much wanted to stay on Block Island. Our Mother suddenly died; we arranged trip to New England to have a night or two of peace before funeral. We fully explained our situation. Then, the funeral plans quickly changed. The very next morning after reserving late that previous night, we called the Blue Dory, explained we could not... More

We stayed at The Blue Dory, for the second time, this past weekend. We were attending a wedding and needed a convenient location. The Blue Dory was the perfect location, in town with beach access (beach chairs available for guests at no charge). The sound of lapping waves all night, perfect! A delicious breakfast is included in the rate, as... More
