Another great week.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time. It's always great when we can all get together. This home is the perfect size for all 20 of us. There was an issue with water this year which we hadn't had trouble with the prior year, but with worked with it. Looking forward to next year if available the 3rd week in July 2017. Thanks for allowing us the use of this place

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with finding this house. With a big, multi-generational family to accommodate, this was the greatest fit. We all enjoyed the deck in the morning and had so much fun exploring the Island all day. The weather cooperated so nicely for us and the wedding was beautiful down on the beach. We are all speaking of coming back for an anniversary trip!

Perfect Get Away !

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We have been coming to BI for 5 years now and this is the best option we've had and we hope to be able to get it for 2016. The view was gorgeous, even though not direct site of ocean. We had 8 children and 8 adults for our stay. We normally would have had 10 and 10, but my son and his family were unable to join us as their little girl (6 yrs old) has been diagnosed with cancer and is going through treatments. We spent a lot of time during our week praying and keeping in touch with them, but otherwise it was perfect. More than enough room and very nicely set up. Liked the fact that in most of the bedrooms, there were also setting areas, which added to privacy and a spot to get away if needed.

We would recommend this spot to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It means a lot to us to be able to share our family home and "our island". We hope to have you as return guests sometime soon.

There are many fun things to do on Block Island, almost all of them outdoors. The island is at its best when the sun is shining and vacationers can enjoy the spectacular beaches. There is something for everyone. Biking, hiking, kayaking, and recently the stand up paddle board has become a favorite summer activity. There are many sights to see on this historic island, so whether you like to explore on your own or hook up with an organized tour or activity, the choice is yours.
