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!! I had a very pleasant experience during my stay and it was well worth the money. The innkeeper, Holly, was very attentive and helpful, and...

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...

A few days away as a couple. Great location with terrific view and proximity to the beach. Cute room. Reasonable. Bed was a little hard for our taste. Activity outside the window could be a little distracting. Stunning beach vistas and sunsets on the southwest end. Look forward to return visit.

Recently spent a week at The Blue Dory and had the most wonderful and relaxing visit. The Inn has a comfy and cozy parlor where guests gather each evening for wine, lemonade, light hor d'oeuvres and home made cookies. It was a great way to meet the other guests and enjoy the company of the owner, Ann. Breakfast is served...

My wife and I stayed at the beautiful Blue Dory Inn during and after the Labor Day holiday for 5 days. Even though we were visited by the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine, especially the ten foot waves that we could see from our second floor windows overlooking Crescent Beach on Block Island. We still enjoyed ourselves as the Blue Dory...
