Family Time on Block
Great home to enjoy time with our family. Room enough for Mom Dad and kids. Location worked well for us, walking or biking to activities was great. Spent most of our time cooking and relaxing on deck. We were fortunate enough to have great weather. Hope to come back soon.
Had a great week on BI at the Burgess home. We have stayed at several different properties on BI over the years and this home is very Clean, had plenty of room for our family and was an easy short walk to town.
Updated, Clean, Spacious and Convenient
Best house we have stayed in on Block Island! Convenient walk to town with many amenities that most house on BIRI don’t have. Would recommend to anyone.
The location is great. The house is better now after our stay
The Burgess House is in the perfect location. It is quiet yet still in walking distance to the center of town and the beautiful beaches. Unfortunately for us, however, the gas ran out on Tuesday, leaving us without access to the stove and hot showers for a day. Thankfully, my daughter found the name and contact information of the gas company and got a delivery scheduled for the next day. Another glitch was there was no working internet. I chose this house thinking Wi-Fi was available because as an author, I had some deadlines to meet and my son had a very important business meeting to attend on Tuesday, which made both impossible to do without Wi-Fi. We reached out to the owner and were advised to handle it ourselves. My son called the internet provider and tried to trouble shoot for over an hour to no avail The Company made arrangements to come the following day from 8-11, which we had to be present for. They never arrived and we sacrificed the morning.
My daughter did get a call from the Internet provider the following week saying that they were on the Island repairing the situation. So for those who will be choosing the Burgess House in the near future, you should have both Wi-Fi and Propane thanks to the diligence of my three children.
Always an awesome stay
This was our third summer renting the burgess house for our annual girls weekend. You just can't beat the location. It's a quick walk into town, and has parking if you want to bring a car over. It's got two great decks, outside shower, and overall layout. We will definitely be back!
looking for hair dryer
Had a few problems with missing staples: hair dryer etc., and Dan attempted to correct. Great location, beautiful view, small common area; Dan extremely helpful.
