The Avonlea is by far, the best place to stay on Block Island. The rooms are amazing, the views are unmatched and the service of the staff goes above and beyond! Comfortable beds, hot breakfast served up every morning, and the Owner is an absolute delight. We will be going back next year and staying at the Avonlea, not even...

There are so many special thoughts when having the privilege to stay at the Avonlea B & B. The first is the view, as I was 100' from the ocean from my bedroom and the front porch. I was two blocks away from the ferry and walking distance to all the great restaurants that Block Island has to offer. Secondly,...

First time on the island the hotel was everything they said it was. The porch had an unobstructed view being that the inn was the last one before the the beach so the view went to the end of the island. Breakfast was nice and wine and snacks in the afternoon also. We are booking next year here again. peaceful...

Great B&B right in town, and you can walk to everything, but not be on the main drag. The breakfast needs a new set-up for easier flow and guest access, but still good. Very nice people and easy-going.

We have stayed at the Avonlea for a number of years now and we keep coming back because of the location, the accommodations, but most of all for the hospitality of the innkeepers. They are warm and welcoming and try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This year my husband surprised me by inviting all of our friends...

Avonlea is perfectly situated on BI if you want to be in the heart of the activity. It's right on the water, and the porch has gorgeous views of the seas. Our room was snug, but that was OK since we weren't in the room very much. Meg and Josh, the caretakers, were very busy all the time, but were...

We stayed here Wednesday to Fruday in July and couldn't be happier. It's the cutest house and a great location. Walking distance to everything-even if you're up for a couple mile walk to The Oar! Walk to the beach and they have chairs, towels, boogie boards and kites for you to use. The drinks/snacks at happier are perfect. The breakfast...

We stayed in the Avonlea just a week before the boat races..and almost had the Inn -- and the Island to ourselves!
