Block Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4 adults, 4 kids)
This neo classic beach house sits on a tidal pond with the most beautiful beach on the island at the end of your driveway. You don’t need a car, as it is just a short walk to the ferry dock and town. A post and beam house with loftlike spaces, the downstairs has a kitchen/living/dining area and French doors opening out onto a covered porch oceanside and a back deck with water views.
The master bedroom, with king bed and huge en suite bathtub, looks out to sea with a private balcony. The Green Room has a queen bed and its own balcony, while the Birds' Nest has four twin beds, two up a ladder in a loft. Two rooms share a separate bath with walk-in rain shower. Grounds are complete with outdoor shower, lily pond, lawns for croquet, water toys, goldfinches and pheasants. Wifi but no TV! Laze in hammocks and rediscover peace and love. Sleep to the sound of the waves.

Why The Owner chose Block Island
I ran a surf shop, Claudia's Surf City, in the summers long ago. With my brother, a skilled carpenter, we converted it into a cottage. When my daughter got married, the family expanded, and we built Hannah's Honeymoon Hideaway, a post and beam house. Our first guests came in 2006, and we continue to improve Hannah's Hideaway every year, polishing it, if possible, to a brighter sheen. It is now the sine qua non of simplicity, functioning as perfectly as a beach house as a shell for a nautilus. You can see more pix and videos in links on Claudia's Surf City
What makes this cottage unique
Though on the beach and close to the ferry dock and town, you can retreat to a private world that feels far from mainland cares. After even a weekend on Block Island you feel as if you've had a wonderful break from reality.
