The Blue Dory was a great location for us in the off season. It would definitely be too busy for me during the summer. Our room was okay the 1st night,a bit small and a little noisy street side. We were able to move to a much nicer rm for the 2nd night that was oceanside wIthaca a magical skylight... More

Recently spent a week at The Blue Dory and had the most wonderful and relaxing visit. The Inn has a comfy and cozy parlor where guests gather each evening for wine, lemonade, light hor d'oeuvres and home made cookies. It was a great way to meet the other guests and enjoy the company of the owner, Ann. Breakfast is served... More

My wife and I stayed at the beautiful Blue Dory Inn during and after the Labor Day holiday for 5 days. Even though we were visited by the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine, especially the ten foot waves that we could see from our second floor windows overlooking Crescent Beach on Block Island. We still enjoyed ourselves as the Blue Dory... More

My wife and I arrived at the lovely and meticulously maintained Blue Dory Inn the same evening hurricane/tropical storm/tropical depression Hermine was departing. The ferries were still not running, so another couple who were stranded on the island were in the room we had reserved. The proprietor, Ann Law, offered us our choice of the available rooms -- both of... More

Spent a great weekend at the Blue Dory Inn. Comfortable, air conditioned room. Tastefully decorated old Victorian house. Very informative and helpful staff. Ann was fantastic! Making plans for another visit soon. Steps to the beach, ferry and shopping.

We have been staying at the Blue Dory Inn for the past 5 years. We love the location, which is just steps from the ferry and Kids Beach. Breakfast is served downstairs with a different features dish every morning. There are lots of different room styles and sizes to choose from. While some come with sofa beds, they are uneven...

The breakfast is in a dingy old basement and it was stale muffins and gross... More

The location, sweet porch, welcoming staff, delicious breakfast and generous happy hour all deserve 5 stars. On the down side , although we are willing to pay $300+ for a room in season ,we found this room quite small for the price ,with only a so - so view from bedroom window( better view from bathroom).Keep in mind, This is...

Beautiful big clean room with a view of the beach through the skylight. Vey friendly staff and more spacious than you'd expect. The Inn had a lot to offer (beach towels/lounges) and is perfectly located on the beach and the center of town is right around the corner.

The Blue Dory is distinguished by the wonderful hospitality of the owner Ann and her manager Jo-Ann. Ann hosts a happy hour from 5:30 to 6:30 and serves good wine, appetizers, cookies and conversation with the other guests. She spends this time getting to know the needs of her guests and how she can accommodate them to enjoy their stay.... More
