Property description

Offering a winning combination of being well off the main road for privacy and quiet without being remote, with a huge water view and striking sunsets over Rodman's Hollow, the adjacent 230-acres of conservation land to the west, this stunning property is a short walk or bike ride away from some of the island's most dramatic and secluded beaches along with a freshwater pond perfect for swimming.

This newly renovated saltbox is hip and relaxed, with a large, spacious open plan upstairs featuring a large deck for grilling and outdoor dining and a living/dining area accessed by a spiral staircase. There are four bedrooms: three downstairs bedrooms with patio access, two with queen beds, one with an antique full bed; plus a smaller bedroom with a twin bed. There are two full baths, one downstairs with a clawfoot slipper tub, and one upstairs. There is also a spectacular outdoor shower. Private parking for two cars is included.

The structure sits on 3.5 acres, which it shares with a barn and two additional cottages, one of which is available to rent as a pair that sleeps 12 - 14. Please inquire for pricing and availability.

Block Island is a great getaway and offers bird watching, deep sea fishing, hiking and biking. 40% of the island is conservation land, so trails are abundant. There are numerous beaches ranging from sandy, family friendly beaches to the more secluded south coast beaches popular with surfers and surfcasters. Explore the main port with its cute boutiques and a variety of dining options.

Block Island is accessible by plane (a short 15-minute flight from Westerly, RI) or by ferry. Ferries depart from Point Judith, RI; Newport, RI; Fall River, MA; New London, CT; Montauk, NY; Orient Point, NY. Car reservations are available if you book well in advance on some of the ferries. Most visitors rely on a bike or moped. I'm new to VRBO! I live with my husband and son in Boston, MA. We fell in love with Block Island years ago and are thrilled to be able to offer our cottage to vacationers. We hope you enjoy it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I'm new to VRBO! I live with my husband and son in Boston, MA. We fell in love with Block Island years ago and are thrilled to be able to offer our cottage to vacationers. We hope you enjoy it! I'm an avid gardener and part-time musician. I also teach college history. When my family and I are not enjoying New England's beautiful spots like Block Island, we like to see other parts of the United States and travel abroad, when we can.

Why the Owner Chose New Shoreham, New Shoreham, RI, USA:
Few other properties on Block Island offer the combination of a large ocean view and a site alongside Rodman's Hollow, a 230-acre nature preserve, in addition to being well distant from the main road to allow for privacy, peace and quiet. Vail Beach, one of the island's most stunning and secluded beaches with a long sandy stretch and great surf, easily accessible by footpath, and Fresh Pond, great for swimming, are both a short walk away, only 5 minutes by bicycle. A more lovely and peaceful spot would be difficult to find.
