Property description

Summer Hill is a beautiful, old, Block Island farmhouse, that was formerly a Bed and Breakfast and is now rented by the week. It is perfect for family reunions, workshops, retreats, or for most larger groups. We also host weddings.

Recently renovated and awash in floral colors, the interior of this 1885 house is tastefully, yet casually appointed. We have ten bedrooms, two living rooms, a dining area, and a country kitchen with pantry and laundry room. Our wraparound porch with distant ocean views is ideal for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Use the large lawn for a game of touch football or croquet and badminton. We provide the games as well as beach chairs.

Located halfway between Old and New Harbors just off Ocean Ave., Summer Hill is close to the action, but tucked away on a quiet side street. B.I.'s beautiful beaches are less than a ten-minute walk and the town, with many shops and restaurants, is also a short walk away. Block Island is listed as one of the last great places by the Nature Conservancy and it is a wonderful spot to explore by walking or biking.
