SWEEPING VIEWS TO ATLANTIC;4BR HILLTOP CAPE $3450

Block Island Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

HIGH SEASON : mid June to mid September

Enjoy a full kitchen, living room , dining room, den, patio, deck and 4 acres of rolling fields with visits by deer and pheasants. And the cost is far less than any hotel for four bedrooms; in fact per person it is $61.61 per night

At the house relax outside on the patio or in the shady paddock courtyard , enjoy sweeping views of fields, stonewalls and ocean while others can run around acres of lawn and play outdoor games. Fishing in a pond is yards away. Walk to Vail beach in less than 15 minutes.

If you're inside, this is a house where some people can congregate while others have a place to themselves.

You can eat at a dining room table, a bar, or at either a breezy or a sheltered picnic table. Or do a BBQ down the hill in the stone barn foundation with 9 foot walls on three sides and a grassy paddock in front of you.

You can bike to the north end of the island for a workout, climb down the bluff path to Vail Beach in 12 minutes to surf, fish, swim, paint or have a beach fire.

In 5 minutes drive to the shops and crowds of Old Harbor , then on to Crescent beach for a swim and maybe some parasailing.

Decide whether you'll go out for dinner or make a feast at home; go out dancing or to a movie.

Maybe a moonlit swim or bonfire at the beach

Take yourself to The Great Salt Pond for kayaking, clamming, sailing , tennis or to watch the windsurfers, sailors and power boaters.

Have cocktails on the lawn of the Spring House or The Atlantic and stop by the Manisees Menagerie for a look at the camels and emus and Highland Cows.

Then come back to your nine room 'cottage' on its four acres of fields and paths with its two bedrooms up and two on the main floor. A comfortable living room as well as a den, a large kitchen with plenty of seating. Even the bedrooms have a quiet spot to read.

When you come back from paddling or the beach take a hot outdoor shower .

The beds are firm but soft and embrace you. Two families can stay comfortably given the layout of rooms and beds so come as a group of 8 and the cost is $61.61 per person per night and you have a home of your own and the whole Block Island magic to savor for a week.

You won't have pheasants wake you or grazing fawns interrupt your dinner at a resort or on a cruise ship. Come to Block Island and feel the grass and the sand between your toes.

Retired financier with a passion for sports, a penchant for travel and a pleasure taken in cultural activities

Catharine Kolb purchased this chateau / country house in 1983

It's beautiful and unspoiled, easy to get to, stress free, modern conveniences but a place to chill out

marvelous bird watching, star spotting, rambling on beaches or trails, biking the challenging hills, enjoying the local music scene, taking great photos and being at the beach.

I jog, bike and meander from the front door. I sling a towel around my neck, a beach chair over my shoulder and stuff a book or my watercolors in the chair , walk down the grassy path over the back of the property and am on the beach painting in less than 12 minutes.

SERENE SETTING, SUPERBLY EQUIPPED.

  • 5 of 5
The house fully lived up to its description/ photos. The owner provided us with tons of useful info especially the fun map with places to explore, and helped us understand the island's weather patterns. Our group of 7, including 5 young adults, had plenty of space for togetherness outdoors and in, and alone time in the quiet den. The lay out of rooms is great. The good-sized dining room has nice serving platters and casserole dishes. The kitchen is big enough for a group to sit on the benches while the cook, both when grilling outdoors and working in the kitchen, has company. Sitting on the comfy chaise longues and admiring the views was heaven, (we appreciated the 4 acres...no traffic noise and a very private feel.) so was bird watching each morning. We sure hope to go back next year!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for a week with our two kids (3 and 8) along with my brother, his wife and two young kids. We never felt crowded and liked the fact that the bed rooms were spread out around the house. The area is very peaceful and while not close to the beaches if you have a car then it's not a problem. I liked having the outdoor shower to clean off in and the deck is nice for evenings watching the sunset.

CHARMING, SPACIOUS AND WELL-APPOINTED HAPPY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several Block Island houses as a group of adult siblings and some adult-ish offspring and this was among our favorites. This is a wonderful house, with very comfortable bedrooms and well-designed and furnished sitting, dining, music practicing and outdoor lounging areas.The owner's Haitian and other art work is a relief from the usual nautical theme. The house is for people who like to be with one another as it is not huge. The location was quiet and lovely--walking distance to Vail beach but well off the main road--and a good bike ride to other beaches and town. (A car is probably needed to bring gear and food back.) We were six inside with a few others in a nearby cottage who came over for games or dining. The owner was available and communicative on any issues. We hope to stay there again.

GREAT GETAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
At first we thought that we picked the wrong end of the island to stay at but quickly figured out that the location was exactly what we were looking for - Very quiet, off the beaten path, great views, super backyard with comfortable lounge chairs allowing you to enjoy the scenery. The house comfortably slept 8 and we never felt the least bit crowded.

Definitely going back next year!!!!

LOVELY STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Catharine's beautiful home. Within walking distance to the beach (although down a fairly steep hill), we frequented the Vail beach area often. We also had our bikes and traveled the length of the island. Catharine also suggested other beaches, hiking areas, and sights which we took advantage of (Mansion Beach, Great Salt Pond at the end of Andy's Way, etc.). Overall the house was extremely cozy, comfortable for our party of 8 (with two kids-7 and 5), and wonderfully well-stocked (we even used the crock-pot one evening). Our only complaint was that we had to leave. Thanks for a great stay!
