Very nice, quiet and clean.

3.2 on September 15, 2014

Never staying at Block Island, we didn't know what to expect. Having stayed at other BnBs, we had some idea of what to expect. Our room was nice and quiet -- in the carriage house. The owner was very welcoming and explained the property and its amenities. The wine/cheese/guac time was nice and the front porch was very welcoming. The bathroom in our room was a bit tiny, but it was fine for our short stay. If we came back, we'd choose one with four even walls - no dormers. The location is about a mile from town and definitely walkable without suitcases. Rich's Ride helped us out a few times with our bags or if it was late at night.

"fabulous views of the ocean and New Harbor" that's what they say on the website of the room I stayed, that's so not true. It's just a a far away view, you have to pay attention to see it. There are no wall hooks in the bedroom and in the closet I found 4 mismatched hangers, one from a dry clean store. It's overpriced, I stayed in better B&B, and less expensive, in Bar Harbor, Maine. I believe I forgot my phone charger at the bedroom, I emailed, I called a few times and nobody ever called me back or acknowledge my email. ps.: I had to enter a Dining score otherwise the program would not let me finish the review, but there was no Dining at this B&B.

Girls trip. Ability for room to be made up with 2 twin beds was perfect. Location was perfect, within walking distance of both the Old and New Harbors. Dave was friendly and very welcoming. Nice breakfast in a quaint atmosphere.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast experience!!!

Although everything met my expectation, I will never stay at this B&B again. Upon arrival I presented the Innkeeper a $200 gift certificate. He indicated that he will reduce the charge place on my charge card the same day. Prior to my department I remended him of the gift certificate and he once again indicated that he would take care of it immediately. Despite a phone message I left on their answering machine and a email, both not answered, he has still yet to applied the credit. My next step is to notify better business.

Home away from home!

Our stay at Island Home Inn for our 10year anniversary was fantastic. I don't know whether it was the delicious breakfast, the fine details and items of the home which transported us back to the days of old, or the laid back and approachable demeanor of the "Captain" [innkeeper]. We loved it and will be back for another pleasant getaway.

The Island Home Inn is a special place that illuminates the ambience of Block Island. Dave is a special host who makes you feel part of his family and you feel like you are returning home when you go back to the B&B. Enjoy the summer, Coach Tony.
