This cottage was everything the owners advertised. In a lovely setting overlooking a nature preserve, the cottage is on the same property and right next to the owners' main house (where they also have a B&B), but feels very private. The house is small, just enough space for two (and possibly a very small child). Downstairs is a small living room/dining area, and a kitchen and a bathroom. Lots of stuff cleverly arranged for the small space; there's also a deck right outside the living room. The upstairs bedroom is very comfortable and private. The house is extremely clean and well cared for. The owners are available but not intrusive. Since I'm an avid cook, if we were to rent this place again, I would bring more kitchen equipment (knives, cutting board, etc.). There's just enough stuff, but it's pretty basic. We had a lovely time. Block Island is beautiful, and off-season is so quiet and relaxing (we rented in October). I would recommend a car.
