We stayed at Payne's Harbor View for 3 nights. We chose it for it's location because we had friends arriving by boat to New Harbor. The Inn is at the top of a hill so the views are wonderful: porches all around the house and plenty of shade. It was HOT the first day but the breeze and the ceiling... More

Paynes is a very quiet B&B just outside of town, maybe a half mile but still walkable to town and the beach. This was our 2nd year staying there. We have been coming to BI for over 25 years and have stayed in 3 other inns I would not recommend (see my other reviews) and a house. Paynes is the... More

Highly recommend this wonderful inn. Beautifully renovated large rooms with great views of New Harbor. The hostess is friendly and very helpful; happy to arrange taxi or tours. The complimentary breakfast included Payne's Killer Donuts. Easy walk to beach, harbor and great restaurants. Casual and relaxing inn

We had a wonderful stay here. Our room was large and airy with a great view of New Harbor. Tracy was super helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions. They provide beach chairs and towels along with bikes. It's a short walk to the restaurants at New Harbor. They have a nice continental breakfast and a beautiful veranda to sit and... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit and have been staying here every summer for the past 8 years. Carol (the owner) and her family do an amazing job of making you feel like this is your home. The Inn is convenient to everything and the views are amazing. They provide a continental breakfast every morning (paynes doughnuts... More

The only reason I am not giving five star is because I miss getting the sushi that they used to have downstairs. They are located on a hill right before we harbor and offer amazing views. They have two massive suites that are beautiful and luxurious. The owner keeps the place immaculate and it really is a quiet and classy... More

My wife and I stayed here during our trip to Block Island and loved it. Good stuff: - Breathtaking views of New Harbor from the property. You can sit outside on Adirondack chairs and have a drink, read a book, or just breathe in the sea air. Just relaxing outside is time well spent. - Excellent location. Very quick walk... More
