Great Place!!! They owners were very open and worked with us to rent this house on the weekend!! We loved the location - on the west side of Block Island - very quite and nice neighborhood with horse farms in the area around the house - the house has two ponds and a big yard - Nice Long Driveway - off the main road. We loved the location - close to the Dori Cove Beach - horseback riding (on Dori Cove Beach), beautiful sunsets off the deck and in the yard - this was a very enjoyable stay for us - we had a great Weekend at Block Island made it a mini vacation with a family Wedding at the Altantic Inn. The house is nicely decorated inside - it was no big deal to air out the house when we first arrived - We would definitely stay there again!!

A Positive Experience All Around!

My family ( 8 people, plus a dog) stayed here early in the summer season. The house was clean, spacious, comfortable, and had every amenity you could think of. The location was ideal for those seeking a peaceful getaway. The large, private yard overlooks a beautiful pond with the beach just a short walk away. The owners were very accommodating, letting my family stay for a few extra hours beyond the check-out time. Everyone had a great time, and we would definitely considering returning in the future! Thanks for a great vacation experience!

We just got back from a week at this most wonderful home. The first impression we had was that it was so private and well maintained. The pond became a focal point for our family. We had morning tea/coffee there on the dock and watched the sunrise reflections. We also sat there and fished and then when sunset came, we watched the colors dance in the water. The home was spacious and beautiful. We had 7 adults and we all had a place to escape to if needed. The owner lives nearby which makes it great if you have a question. The location was perfect. A short walk to Dorries Cove beach and you can sit there and watch the sunset while leaning against driftwood. We have nothing negative to say about our stay. We fell in love with Block Island and also this home. Thank you so much to the owner and for providing so many extras that we have never had at other vacation rentals. So many games (outdoor and in) and the hammocks under the trees were perfect during the heatwave.The house had many fans to cool us and also the nearby ocean breezes. We would love to come back to this house. Just totally perfect. We miss it already. We recommend it 100%.

Owner's Response: I am always happy to hear when people enjoy their stay at my rental home. I make improvements and add amenities every winter while the house in not rented. I am always open to suggestions on how to enhance the property so that people can really relax and have the get a way they deserve. Leave all your electronic gadgets at home, if possible, and take time to smell the roses. Life is too short to be a slave to the rat race. These guests had the right idea and were a pleasure to rent to. They are welcome back any time!

We stayed here with a few friends for Fathers Day weekend. We ony had two nites but loved it here. the house ison a private road and has a beautiful deck, very peaceful. The hammocks were wonderful and so is the swing on the deck. Just what we were hoping for. The house had plenty of room, Very nice living room. It is very breezy which is perfect! !Close to new harbor. Hope to come back and stay longer. Although we did not have a chance to meet the owners, they could not be more helpful.
