Given the lack of commercial laundry facilities on the island you can bring your own linens or rent linens from a mainland company which delivers to and picks up from the house . Baby gear can also be rented . All info is contained in the lease.

Get your ferry reservations immediately after confirming your booking with me. The biggest issue with a Block Island vacation is always getting a ferry Rez for your car. Interstate Navigation starts taking reservations by phone the first business day after New Years. Book early therefore

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: Retired financier with a passion for sports, a penchant for travel and pleasure taken in cultural activities.

Why the Owner Chose New Shoreham, RI, USA:
It's beautiful and unspoiled, easy to get to, and a place to chill out

The Unique Benefits at this House:
marvelous bird watching, star spotting, rambling on beaches or trails, biking the challenging hills, enjoying the local music scene, taking great photos and being at the beach. I jog, bike and meander from the front door. I sling a towel around my neck, a beach chair over my shoulder and stuff a book or my watercolors in the chair , walk down the grassy path over the back of the property and am on the beach in less than 12 minutes.
