We are Tom and Kathleen and we would love to share our home with you. We have 5 fantastic children, an incredible daughter in law, and 3 gregarious grandsons!
Thomas Mitchell purchased this house in 1980
We are sure that you will have everything that you need so you can relax and enjoy your vacation from the very moment you arrive. We enjoy large family gatherings here often, and it is always a great home to stretch out in or to all congregate in one place. The outside offers beautiful views and an expansive yard. You will feel at home in our home! We have always enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of town, but being within 2 miles to everything. We are happy to email you additional photos and floor plan to help you plan your stay with us, here on the island.
For your stay we have included fresh linens already on the beds (dinner on the table... just kidding), towels, already out, ready for the beach, paper goods to start your stay, and your garbage will be taken away. If you have any special requests please let us know. Thanks.
we needed a place large enough for our extended family (2 grandparents, 4 parents, 3 young adults, 3 teens, a 9 yr. old, and a newborn!) and had heard that block island was a nice place to visit. the house is spacious and quaint, was handed over very clean and in great condition, with virtually every amenity we could have hoped for, even a frisbee to throw around on the giant front lawn over looking Fresh Pond, which is delightfully swimmable. the location was far enough from the waterfront/center of town to not feel touristy, but everywhere on the island was comfortably accessible by bike or even on foot for youhardy hikers out there. we all enjoyed hanging out in the large and well-appointed kitchen and back deck, grilling and cooking and relaxing. even when it warmed up outside the cool Atlantic breezes kept the house comfortable. block island's beaches are world-class, and besides the ones close to the ferry, quiet and uncrowded. the vibe on the island is very chill, and the great housing choice, varied activities, and general atmosphere made for a really nice vacation. the mitchell's were sweet and helpful and dealt promptly with one or two minor issues which cropped up (block island internet access is a bit sketchy, for those of you who are lost without 24/7 high-speed connectivity). just to illustrate, we forgot something in the house, and when tom noticed it, he called, jumped in his car, and drove down to the dock to hand it back to us as we were loading onto the ferry. above and beyond the call of duty, and very appreciated. i would definitely recommend this property to friends looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway
If you are looking for fun in the sun, swimming, sailing shopping, or leisurely walks on the beach, hiking in the Greenway trails or biking around the island, there is something for everyone. Combine that with mouth watering restaurants, cocktails, sunsets and starlit skies. If that's not enough then there is dancing and moonlit nights.
