"If I could use decimal ratings, I'd rate our stay at the Minister's Lot Cottage a 3.8.
The house needs some TLC. Some of the windows did not open properly and some did not shut tightly. Light switches were missing hardware.
On the positive side, a very short walk to Lulu's Way will bring you to one of the best beaches on Block Island. The deck was sunny and inviting with a pleasant breeze and the ever-present scent of honeysuckle and ragusa rose.
Eileen was very helpful and promptly answered questions we posed.
If you want a no-frills, secluded, homey place to stay, with access to a long sandy beach, give this cottage a try."

"Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful week in Jamestown at "The Waves” cottage in June... The apartment exceeded all our expectations in every way... It was very private, super clean, and exceptionally well appointed... The apartment has all the charm and character of a Nantucket cottage with the added benefit of all the modern conveniences like an open layout, skylights, central air conditioning, and super fast wi-fi… The apartment has an amazing gourmet kitchen… Everything a cook could want is right at your fingertips from EVOO to fresh ground pepper… We found a wonderful local seafood shop in Jamestown called “Zeke’s Creek Seafood, Bait & Tackle”… The owner was super nice and the seafood was simply outstanding… We enjoyed cooking almost every night and couldn’t wait to get home… From pan seared scallops with fresh asparagus to Little neck clams linguine, and Lobsters on the grill… I can’t recall ever enjoying cooking so much while on vacation than our time at “The Waves”… It's only a short walk to downtown Jamestown and all the shops and restaurants… Also an easy walk to nearby Mackerel Cove beach and Beavertail State Park offering some of the most spectacular vistas along the New England coastline.... Historic Newport is just a short car or ferry ride away... We enjoyed an amazing day trip to Martha’s Vineyard… With two teenager’s, we spent our only rainy day at the Premium outlets in Wrentham, Mass which is less than an hour away and the girls couldn’t have been happier… After a day of shopping, we had dinner and took in a movie at the nearby Patriot Place located at Gillette Stadium. We would highly recommend a stay at "The Waves” cottage… It’s very clear that Betsy goes way out of her way to make everything very very special for all her guests... Already looking forward to next time…"

"My husband and I were looking for a reasonably priced house that would allow pets within walking distance to the beach. We didn't need anything super fancy, and didn't have the highest expectations for this little cottage. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It's much more spacious than in the photos, and was extremely clean. It's also a 4 minute walk to the Town Beach - we timed it. The house is stocked with almost everything you could need, and Sue is so nice, accommodating, and easy to work with. We loved this rental and will definitely be back in the future!"
