Carmen and staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Carmen knows everyone and is totally networked in her community. She arranged for us to rent a car when we realized we needed one if we wanted to have the freedom to roam the entire island. The Inn with big porches front and back is in a great location overlooking Payne's Dock. Fred Benson beach is very close to the Inn. Breakfast was great and of course Payne's killer donuts were always around in addition to traditional breakfast foods. There were cookies in the dining room each afternoon. Can't say enough good things-a very nicely run family business.
We love Payne's Harbor Inn. My family and I stayed on the top floor, room #10. The room was spacious with the most amazing views facing Paynes Harbor. The hosts were so friendly. Breakfast was delicious - especially the killer donuts. We can't wait to go back!
Thank you for such a delightful stay at the inn. We have stayed at many inns on the island over the years and this was the best so far. It was a close proximity to the beach, town and restaurants. Kayak and paddle board rentals were close by with an inn discount. Our room #2 was clean and spacious with gorgeous sunset views. The inn was immaculate and breakfast was just perfect especially Payne's donuts. Loved the cookies but I think the inn is screaming for some cheese, crackers or snacks with wine to enjoy on the beautiful deck in the afternoon as a chance to unwind and meet other guests. Looking forward to a return visit.
Absolutely loved the Inn!!! My husband and I enjoyed the charm of the hotel, staff and the convenience of being near the marina where our family was staying.. breakfast presentation was great and muffins/donuts/pastries (delicious)!!!
The house is gorgeous, immaculately clean and the people who work there could not be any nicer. They truly go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and we always feel like it is our home. We love Carmen, Joann,Stella, and the lovely ladies that keep the Inn clean Sharon and Sophia are wonderful! Kathy, Dawn,Ann
This was one of the very best overnight stays I have had. Extremely clean rooms and common spaces. The staff were beyond accommodating and very friendly. I can’t stress enough how clean and comfortable this stay was. I most certainly will return and look forward to the experience again!!!!
My husband and I always stay at Payne's Harbor View Inn, but this April we decided to try out their new property, New Harbor House. It was WONDERFUL! The house itself is in a great location, being close to all of the main Block Island attractions, while still giving you that quiet/private residence feel. We were pleasantly surprised by how incredibly spacious the rooms were and we loved having a working fireplace. Within a few minutes of dropping our bags, we were already planning when we wanted to rent next. Can we say family reunion?? This house could easily accommodate for all of them. We couldn't believe how affordable this rental property was for the amount of space, and amenities. The owners, Carmen & Kevin are AMAZING!! If we needed anything, we knew they were only a phone call away. Honestly, this house had everything we could have asked for and more! If we could give more stars, we would! 10/10 would recommend!!!!…
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in October. Delightful experience! Beautiful, immaculate, welcoming! I have nothing but good things to say! Norma and Sharon are wonderful hosts. The breakfast was good, and the afternoon cookies were a nice touch. Please note it is better to use transportation from the ferry than trying to walk
Stayed on the third floor. Kevin was friendly and showed us around before sending us up to our room, 8 on the third floor. Rooms and place have that historic feel with old family photos. Front entrance door was kept open, so not surprising to see some mosquitos in the hallway. The location is good for couples who want to be away some from the more crowded and touristy area of New Shoreham. We preferred the limited number of rooms. The donuts and cookies were excellent. The breakfast was good with items such as bagels, toast, egg, meat, yogurt and fruit. Staff and guests were not wearing masks even in public areas, but seems to be the state of affairs on the island now.
We have been there for a girls trip a few times over the past few years and had the time of our life! The place is immaculate and the staff are so kind and friendly. I am not sure i could ever find anything wrong or negative to say about the Inn. We cannot wait for our next trip there! Thank you to Joann, Carmen, Norma Hope to see you all soon Kathy, Dawn, Mary
