A Victorian B&B with a relaxed atmosphere. Set on a hill between Old Harbor and the Great Salt Pond, with panoramic views. Warm & comfortable setting, with inviting rooms, cozy nooks and sprawling lawns. Ideal for a quiet retreat or family getaway.

We enjoyed a few days honeymooning at the Inn. Our innkeeper was so personable, kind and welcoming. It was common to converse with other guests at breakfast or during the afternoon snacks. The location of the inn puts you close to many attractions and downtown but yet far enough away to feel that you are on retreat. High recommend the inn to anyone! Warm, inviting, clean, a lovely stay!

My husband and I stayed last fall and decided to return this summer. We called to make a reservation, unfortunately the room we stayed in was taken but Dave the innkeeper was more than accommodating and found us another room. Dave even remembered us from last year. We decided to stay again because the inn was lovely, clean and comfortable, just like home. Breakfast in the a.m. was delicious, lots of variety both hot and cold. In the p.m. we had appetizers and a choice of wonderful drinks. The walk to town is close enough but far enough away from the noise. The beach is just down the road, a great daily walk for exercise. We enjoyed a number of restaurants on the island, a some of which are within walking distance of the inn. All in all our the stay here was amazing, can't wait to return.

My family stayed at the Island Home Inn late August just before the kids headed back headed back to school. We had the most enjoyable time, as the Inn couldn't have been nicer, super friendly staff, super clean "air conditioned" room, great location which is close to everything, awesome breakfasts...We didn't want to leave! We just booked our upcoming annual visit in August and can't wait to stay at our new favorite place on this gorgeous island!

Our friendly very busy host Dave met our needs after a miscommunication through booking.com. He placed us in a smaller room and made up for it the next day. We had a room with a lovely view of the harbor and he let us stay beyond the usual checkout time. Breakfast was tasty with several choices, in the evening merlot and moscato with appetizer/ fresh cookies served at 5:30 P.M., grounds nice, fountain, flowers, seating, hammocks and funky art work. The Inn was quaint so don't expect anything beyond if you like plush. Music and scented candles greet you as you walk in the front door. Very steep stairs in the main house for Those who have walking issues so stay sober! It was a wonderful place for solitude to snuggle up and read a book or take a nap. Block Island is a nature lovers paradise. Hike or bike, bird watch, picture taking...it's the perfect island for leaving all the stressors behind.

Stayed with another couple and don't know if we could have had a better stay. Clean rooms, good food, and Dave and his staff were professional and yet made us feel right at home. Dave was more than willing to answer questions about the island and things we could do. We will be back. Bill and Alison

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.
