Super Sweet Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed! This was our first time staying on Block Island and this vacation rental was perfect! Karen and Glen are extremely hospitable and easy to communicate with. The house was clean with a lot of charm, we felt right at home. We had all kitchen amenities needed for cooking and grilling the nights we stayed in. We enjoyed the beautiful views from the spacious front porch and gazed at the stars at night on their wrap around porch. This spot is perfect to relax but also be close enough to fishing, the beach, clamming and the Island Main Street and Night life. We took in lunch and drinks at the Springhouse Inn which is a short drive or bike ride from the house. We rented mopeds and were able to see the island close up and personal. We also hiked trails along the beach. It was a great vacation and a great place to rent, we will definitely return!

Year after year.. a GREAT vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find a few years ago.. I found this house on the VRBO and it was meant as a christmas gift to my family one year. We can't stop coming back year after year now! The owners are SO friendly! The house has everything you need in it for a great vacation! The perfect deck and rocking chairs for cheese and wine in the afternoon after taking in the day at the beach! The den with the glass door is perfect for when the kids wake up early and don't want to wake everyone else up. There is plenty of things to do so close to house; fishing at the coast guard beach, hanging out by the ponds at the property, walking to "Secret Beach", Shellfishing in the Great salt pond! The kitchen is well equipped for when we come home with our fresh caught fish and clams for clam chowder.. but we always save room for smores on the grill! ;-) Best week of the year.. every year! LOVE IT HERE!
