About Pam Richter

I grew up going to Block Island every summer. I had many Island jobs and many beautiful memories of body surfing on Mansion Beach, sailing, clamming and watching gorgeous sunsets. My husband and I got married at the Spring House on Block Island and now our children are loving their summer childhood on BI.

Pam Richter purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Pam Richter chose Block Island

We love living up Corn Neck Road. We are a very close walk to the best beach, Mansion Beach, and to a separate beach perfect for chidlren, and a short bike ride to the tip of the Island to see beautiful sunsets at the North Lighthouse. It is also a very quick bike ride or car ride into town or to the ferry boat.

What makes this cottage unique

Our house has a large yard for games and just finding new shaded areas to relax and take in the ocean breeze. We also enjoy using our hammock and our picnic table outside, with views.

The pictures and details of this house are exactly accurate. We had two families with kids 3 and under. This house was a great find. The yard has a stone wall that protects the kids from on coming cars. The kids loved waving to people passing by. The house can easily be child proofed and allowed us to be in the family room or outside while kids slept without waking them. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and gadgets. The beaches nearby were easy to bike to (with a bike pod for the kids), to town, and to Great Salt Pond. Location was key! We will be back again, again and again... The only negative was that the house doesn't get much cross ventilation from a breeze. It was warm in the bedrooms during the first week in September, so in the hotter months I can only imagine it gets hot. They do have many fans which were used.

Block Island paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything it said it would be, and the pictures provided on the internet were accurate. It was spacious, very clean and had many amenities. I had a couple of difficuties locating things in the house, and the owner was just a phonecall away both times. Although this is a 4-bedoom house, it was just my husband and I and it was well worth the money. I would highly recommend this property, and plan to stay there again next year.

Lovely Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage and appreciated the efficient way it used space. Helpful amenities were plenty of hooks to hang things, ample closets, and an especially well-supplied kitchen. We liked the short walk to the wonderful Mansion Beach and the porch surrounding the house. There are two showers, one inside and one outside. The bath is a small square one and perfect for small children (we had one toddler with us). Beds, very comfortable, came with high-quality linens.

Block Island has many beautiful natural places and activities. A close walk from our house is the Great Salt Pond where we clam, fish, windsurf and sail. Mansion Beach has the best waves for surfing and boogie boarding. The Block Island Petting Farm has unusual animals to visit and pet. Farmer's Markets are every Wed. and Saturdays. The most beaufiful sunsets are just up Corn Neck Road at the North Lighthouse.
