About Suzann

Frank & Suzann Walsh - along with immediate and extended family - own this house. We welcome your family to be comfortable and enjoy the island as much as we do.

Suzann purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Suzann chose New Shoreham

Our family has vacationed on Block Island for over 36 years. In 2003, 9 family members realized a dream when we bought this 'fixer upper.' We spent 8 months renovating this historic home. The house was renovated with large families in mind so we may all enjoy a vacation at the beach.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The best part of this house is the kitchen. Among my family members we have three trained chefs and almost all of us like to cook. The kitchen is a gathering place for cooking and socializing. The house also has some quiet areas to reflect and renew. The yard has seen many whiffle ball games and the dining room many dinners and card games.

Great house for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. A lot of room for 15 people and not feel on top of each other. The owner is very accommodating and makes you feel right at home. It is a bit far from old harbor but that’s nothing a taxi or bike can’t fix. My family didn’t want to cook breakfast so we arranged breakfast through the owner and we were not disappointed. Overall a great experience!

A great house for a big family and friends

  • 5 of 5

House was immaculate upon arrival. Frank was there and pointed out the essentials. My only suggestion to the owners is to think about adding beach chairs to the house provisions. The rest of the house is superbly equiped and the kitchen is perfect for feeding a crowd. Our only suggestion would be the addition of 2 or 3 cookie sheets. Overall, one of the best of the 15 houses we haved stayed in on Block Island over the past 35 years.

If you are looking for a home away from home, Lynn's Way is the place to be. The house and grounds lend character along with comfort. I'll be back!

Awesome place. Perfect house for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

House is well equipped for entertaining. Has a huge porch and very large yard for games. My family of 20 played ball and various kid games. We enjoyed evenings on the porch, dancing, drinking, telling stories and reminiscing. Will treasure the many great memories created during our stay.

Cousins' Camp

  • 5 of 5

Every year we get our West Coast grandkids together with our East Coast grandkids, often on Block Island. Lynn's way turned out to be a perfect place for us. Six adults, eight kids, lots of bedrooms and that huge kitchen equipped with two of everything you dreamed of having when cooking for so many people! When they weren't at the beach kids played wiffle ball, spike ball, corn hole, on the huge lawn. It was a great vacation!
