Charming accommodations await on Block Island


One of the most important elements to any vacation is having a comfortable place to rest. Whether it is a quaint inn or bed and breakfast, a large Victorian-style hotel or a beach home rental, Block Island offers a variety of lodging options. Many are historic landmarks that have been recently renovated, so you can enjoy staying in a place of history with modern luxury and conveniences.

Located in the heart of Old Harbor are both the National Hotel and Seacrest Inn. The National Hotel, a 45-room, centrally located hotel, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy the expansive views of the harbor on the famous wraparound porch. The National Hotel is also home to the only steakhouse on the island, the Tap & Grille. The Seacrest Inn, a family owned and operated inn, is steps from the ferry landings and a short taxi ride away from the airport. Staying true to inn-style lodging, the Seacrest features a complimentary continental breakfast with your stay.

The Atlantic Inn and Sea Breeze Inn have magnificent views of Old Harbor. The Atlantic Inn, a renovated, 45-room Victorian, is a short five-minute walk to Old Harbor. The guest rooms are individually decorated with antiques. The lush six-acre property is ideal for an afternoon walk and the tennis courts are the place for a competitive game. The Atlantic Inn also has a wraparound porch with views of Old Harbor. The small Sea Breeze Inn overlooks the harbor, a wildflower meadow, perennial gardens and a swan pond. A continental breakfast and kayak rentals for the pond are included with an overnight stay.

Located on the Great Salt Pond in New Harbor, The Narragansett Inn is a four-building hotel. The main Victorian style house is composed of 17 guest rooms and a wraparound deck with views of the ocean. This hotel has a private beach for its guests to enjoy.

Situated in the midst of the historic district, the Gothic Inn is a warm, family-run inn right on the beach. Enjoy the relaxed, homey atmosphere while watching the boats enter and leave Old Harbor. The inn is pet-friendly so be sure to bring along your four-legged friends.

Payne’s Harbor View Inn brings a historic feel to a modern inn. Each room features water views, private decks, antique furnishings and whirlpool baths. Payne’s New Harbor Dock is simply a stroll away, perfect for picnicking and looking out over the harbor.

If a hotel or inn is not for you, Beach Real Estate, Sullivan Real Estate and Ballard Hall Real Estate may have a house rental that is ideal for you. Just because you are on vacation, it doesn’t mean you have to lose the comforts of home.
