About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)
WHITEGATE cottage has 2 stories with the bedroom upstairs and the living area / full bathroom with a stall shower downstairs. There is a spacious front deck with table, chairs and umbrella- perfect for a sunny breakfast or evening cocktails. It is private, quiet and special.
The cottage shares a property with the main house and a small (micro) vineyard (WHITEGATE VINEYARDS) but it is currently not being operated.
On the main floor there is a kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, coffeemaker and all needed kitchen implements etc, but no range. There is a gas grill outside. An outdoor hot / cold shower is in the back of the house -perfect for washing off after the beach or the best morning shower possible on a sunny day.
The living / dining area on main floor is comfortable, casual and airy. Upstairs with windows on all 4 sides the breeze at night will keep you cool so we stock warm blankets.
Whitegate cottage is at the southern end of the island where the spectacular cliffs on the coastline provide unsurpassed views of the Atlantic and the island interior. You can walk to Vail Beach, Black Rock Beach and Rodmans Hollow.
Town center and Crescent Beach (the biggest and most popular beach) are about 3 miles away.
Upstairs : a ships ladder (a bit steep not suitable for small children, handicapped or the elderly, see photo below) leads to 3 beds (2 twin and one full) with a desk and sitting area. The couch in the sitting area is also a twin bed reconfigured as well.
There are ocean views from upstairs and at night you will hear the surf crashing on the cliffs nearby. The walls, floors and walls are all natural wood in keeping with the island look and feel. WHITEGATE is owner (hands on) operated to insure that the cottage is always perfect for your visit.
The cottage has its own back road and parking area separate from the main house. There is a front and back lawn as well as a shady garden path to enjoy. There is a flagpole on the front deck where we fly the flag...it just seems to fit this Summer cottage.....you are welcome to bring & fly your own choice of flag.
Block Island is a country setting. There is no traffic light, Starbucks or mainland chain store of any kind. There is one gas station, one bank and one food market. But there is a brilliant night sky, green island meadows, golden hay fields and the blue Atlantic surrounding your world.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS WE ANSWER ALL EMAIL RATHER QUICKLY.
We rent by the week from Saturday to Saturday. If you are interested in renting, and want to bring a car, book a ferry reservation at once. But be flexible on times and even days. It's Block Island...nothing is easy but its all worth it.
We allow one dog up to 30 pounds.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a new 8% tax on rentals in Rhode Island as well as a 1% Block Island tax.

About the owner: We spend as much time as possible on island in the summer. We are constantly amazed by the natural beauty around us. Living on this island is so unique in that its the smallest town in the smallest state in the USA. Its a mixture of amazing beaches, scenic farmland with grazing cows and rugged cliffs formed by the raging sea.
Why the Owner Chose New Shoreham, New Shoreham, RI, USA:
Our property was the Mitchell farm in the 19th century. Hand built stone walls surround our land. Sheep formally occupied most of the property. We have found all sorts of relics from the past around the property..bottles, buttons, pottery shards, iron tools and so on.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We had the cottage built in 1996. It was built in the island style with gable returns, hand cut fish scale shingles and wainscoting throughout. We added the full bath in 2005 along with a very sophisticated and environmentally friendly waste-water system which conforms to the very strict island codes.
