About the Property

Large house with 7 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (14 guest maximum, including children)

Take advantage of a unique opportunity to rent this much-loved family summer retreat. A perfect house for extended family & friends to spend a vacation on Block Island - there is lots of room to spread out. The home is ideally situated...tucked away at the end of a long private drive off Spring Street, a 15 minute walk to town and to the Southeast Lighthouse and Mohegan Bluffs and beach.

The hilltop location means that ocean views can be enjoyed from the wrap-around deck and covered porch as well as most of the rooms in the house. A large yard surrounded by stone walls is perfect for family baseball games, croquet, horseshoes and more.

This is not your typical rental...it is a classic renovated Block Island farmhouse - tastefully decorated with Americana and island artwork. The open first floor features a mudroom/laundry, half bath, large fully-equipped kitchen with new appliances, breakfast bar with stools, dining area with large farm table and a comfortable family room with flat screen TV and fireplace. The large deck offers several rockers, and two outdoor dining tables & chairs. Sound system with outdoor speakers for enjoyment too!

Seven bedrooms include a lovely first-floor master suite with queen bed, access to deck and private full bath. Four more nicely appointed queen bedrooms on the 2nd floor with full bath. Third floor has large king bedroom, kid-friendly bunkroom and another full bath. A great recreation room with TV, fooseball and access to the yard is in the basement level. Outdoor amenities include a newly renovated outdoor shower, hammock, horseshoe pits and Adirondack chairs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: This property owned by a family who has spent 25+ years enjoying summers on Block Island.

Why the Owner Chose New Shoreham, RI, USA:
Our home was originally called the Amy Dodge House, an 1800's rooming house located up the hill from it's current location. In 1987, after renting on the West side for several summers, my father bought the property. The house was moved onto a new foundation where it currently sits, and a garage built further down the driveway. The house was brought down to the studs and completely renovated while keeping some of the historic charm of a 19th century Block Island home. Over time, the master bedroom addition was added, deck expanded and various updates made. Our large family, including my parents, brothers and all of our children have spent countless summers (and even a few Thanksgivings & New Years celebrations) since then enjoying this wonderful home. We've hosted clambakes, cookouts and croquet tournaments for extended family. It truly is a wonderful gathering place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer a large home that is perfect for multi-generational or multi-family vacations, reunions and wedding weekends. A perfect combination of quiet, oceanview location while still being close to town and Spring Street attractions. The house has all the charm of a classic BI farm house with all the modern amenities needed for a stress-free vacation. First floor master is perfect for grandparents, bunk room is great for kids and 5 other bedrooms to choose from. Lower level rec room gives kids a place of their own to hang out, with access to the large yard for play. Wraparound deck has multiple areas for dining and relaxing, lots of rockers and outdoor speakers. There is wifi at the home for your convenience. This home has provided our family and our tenants many wonderful memories of time together enjoying the beauty of Block Island.
