4 Bedroom, Historic Cape On 14 Acres / Walk To Beach
About Chris Littlefield
Littlefields have farmed the island since 1690 and this property was originally a Littlefield homestead built in 1720. We have lived year round on the island for over 30 years and bought this property to enjoy the privacy and raise our honeybees. Chris has worked as a conservationist with The Nature Conservancy preserving the island's open space for over 20 years. We have harvested our Block Island wildflower honey since 1984. Both children were raised here.
Chris Littlefield purchased this House in 1999
Why Chris Littlefield chose Block Island
We love the shady serenity here in the summer. It seems to be about 10 degrees cooler here than in town and the trees are remarkable. Walking to beach without having to find a parking place, taking an outside shower, sitting under the maples, napping in the shade, grilling while the kids run in the yard, gazing at the stars…these are all the things we love about our property in the summer.

Lovely rustic hideaway
What an enchanting little house this is for my type - antique and quirky but very clean and sweet and wonderfully close to a magnificent beach. We enjoyed it immensely!
My only very slight issue was that I was never told how to check in, though I emailed about this a few times. I ended up just going to it and found the door open. I couldn't find the number on the house itself, but the house was so much like the description that we moved right in. There were also no instructions left inside, which would have been reassuring. It would have been helpful to know that renters need to supply linens (we had no problem renting them, so all was well).
Had a wonderful time
We had a great time on block island, with Beautiful beaches, and a nice quite peaceful, secluded place to stay.
This is the third time we have stayed here and we just love the property. Being able to walk to a pretty secluded beach is ideal. We only wished the weather had been better but no one can control that. Only issue...we could not find any beach chairs.
Very rustic but just fine
Peaceful spot off the beaten path
This is our second year renting this property and we will be back again! We love the quiet setting outside of town. The only noises you hear at night are the crickets and the bullfrogs nearby. Such a wonderful spot to relax on the island.
This charming 18th century cape is nestled amongst ancient stone walls in the quiet shade of a mature maple grove on Clayhead Trail. The setting is extremely private as the house sits on 14 acres; 12 of which is in conservation. A 10 minute walk through a nature preserve brings you to a beautiful sheltered cove, 300 yards north of the famous Mansion Beach. Quiet, quaint, shady,cool, historic, private setting within walking distance to Crescent Beach.
