The Blue Dory is a lovely place to stay on Block Island, Rhode Island. The Victorian home is set up to accommodate you and your four pawed friend in a warm atmosphere. (One of the few places on the Block that takes dogs) Located near the center of town, but also with a quiet beach area just a short walk...

The Blue Dory Inn is absolutely wonderful. The ambiance was clean, but also very quaint and charming. It's in a perfect location, within walking distance to everything you might need during your stay, and also just around the corner from the ferry. Holly, the Inn manager was awesome... warm and friendly, extremely helpful and always available for anything we needed....

Everything about our first visit to Block Island was fabulous. Our pet friendly suite was perfect! Holly made sure our room was all ready for us - she even brought in a coffeemaker. Beds were very comfortable, room was bright and spacious, we had an amazing view and Holly was only a text away if we ever needed anything. We...

We did a last minute off season trip here in February. This place was great and they were very accommodating letting us check in early and check out late since the hotel was not full. Highly recommended !!

This was our first time staying overnight on Block Island. The Inn was cozy and the accommodations and staff were excellent. Holly was always there to answer any questions that we had about the island. Recommend the Blue Dory to any one staying on the island.

For our first time on Block Island for New Years, we had a great time. The Blue Dory Inn was a great location for the weekend and being that it is pet friendly, we didn't have the stress of leaving our dog at home. The innkeeper, Holly, was pleasant, informative and very accommodating!

I traveled to Block Island to see a friend and stayed there for a few nights. The Victorian Bed and Breakfast was very beautiful, extremely clean and well decorated, and it's right on the beach!!

We traveled to Block Island and the Blue Dory Columbus Day weekend. We love staying in the Tea House which had an updated bathroom since last year. The King size bed is luxurious. Ann, the owner is always so gracious and spends time with the guests during the pre-dinner wine and hors d'oeuvres which are included. She gives you tips...

Beautiful little Victorian bed and breakfast with excellent food and service. Right on the beach and super dog friendly. Block island is beautiful and quiet in mid September. Afternoon wine and cheese was delightful. Would highly recommend.

There were many things we enjoyed about staying at the Blue Dory Inn. The room was large enough to accommodate 3 of us (King bed plus single bed for grown daughter). Everything was neat & clean and it was a quick, easy walk to the beach, stopping on the way to pick up guest beach towels & chairs. It was...
