A Charmer on Block Island
"Whitegate Cottage is a perfect example of why we love our VRBO vacations. Where else could you stay in a charming cottage with personal touches, get insider tips on best enjoying the destination and really feel like you are living like a local. (Oh, and be able to bring a beloved pet.) If you like chain restaurants, amusement parks and hotel amenities, this is NOT for you. But if you want to an active, natural getaway in an incredibly scenic spot, Whitegate Cottage would be ideal. We particularly liked waking up to birdsong, having coffee on the deck (always breezy!) and then setting out to explore the island by foot or bike. Vail Beach and Rodman's Hollow are near by and afford stunning views. The ship's ladder to the second floor may make this property unsuitable for some--but we found that climbing it was great exercise. The cottage also doesn't have a stove, but we successfully made pasta on the hot plate. And, at the end of the day, the outdoor shower was awesome!"

"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."

"We came for a week for my daughter's wedding at Castle Hill on the 29th of August. We rented from John and Helen sight unseen thru VBRO. Beautiful, restored updated Victorian, The 5 bedrooms 4 baths were just right. The porches were perfect - nothing like a swing on front porch at night with a cocktail just relaxing with all the normal wedding chaos going on inside. This house was not a vacation rental -- it was a HOME we rented.
Had everything you could need and everything first class, but also low key
We had dinner cruise Thursday night and we all walked from house to Newport Harbor and back -Easy. Friday night we had welcome party at International Tennis Hall Of Fame and again we all walked both ways and easy.
Simply put a very special place for wedding family, a weekend get away for a few couples or families, women/girls get away, Salve graduation weekend stay. It really contributed to a dream wedding weekend.
Mother of the bride review gives a lot of details I completely agree with and no need for repeat. Seriously consider this place"

"Thank you for allowing my family to enjoy your lovely home. The best part of this home are the breathtaking views....the bird sanctuary which abuts this property is a nature lovers dream, we saw fox, coyote, deer, and all kinds of birds. Off to a distance the sound of the ocean, the ferry's coming and going, and all being just a short walk to the beach. You literally cross a street and you are there. Robin was terrific to deal with, so quickly answered any questions that arose. It was a fabulous vacation one that we would like to repeat. Thanks again!"
