About Suzann

Frank & Suzann Walsh - along with immediate and extended family - own this house. We welcome your family to be comfortable and enjoy the island as much as we do.

Suzann purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Suzann chose USA

Our family has vacationed on Block Island for over 36 years. In 2003, 9 family members realized a dream when we bought this 'fixer upper.' We spent 8 months renovating this historic home. The house was renovated with large families in mind so we may all enjoy a vacation at the beach.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The best part of this house is the kitchen. Among my family members we have three trained chefs and almost all of us like to cook. The kitchen is a gathering place for cooking and socializing. The house also has some quiet areas to reflect and renew. The yard has seen many whiffle ball games and the dining room many dinners and card games.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever at Lynns Way! Such a beautiful, charming, and spacious house and it felt like home! The large kitchen was convenient for cooking for our large group. The front porch was a favorite place for hanging out. We come to Block Island frequently and we loved that this house is far enough away from town to enjoy the quiet but just a 5 minute bike ride to get to town. It was definitely hard to leave!!!

Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

The Lynn's Way house was amazing. The amount of space is so much more than the pictures really show. The high deck has great views. You can even see the water. For just 2 nights away I wish we could have stayed longer. All of the linens were provided which was a great help. The kitchen was gorgeous, however the refrigerators never got cold during our two days there. Everything was just a little colder than room temperature. Other than that everything was perfect!

The property is not walkable from the ferry or downtown area so a car is definitely needed. It was a quiet area and no traffic with a short 2 mile or so drive back to the downtown area. Parking on the island is sparse which made beach trips a little difficult. Cab services were prompt and reliable.

There are a lot of ghost stories and historical texts to be read about the property. Many are provided in the house as well. This did not bother us , but was definitely a little spooky! Overall, a wonderful weekend away. We would love to stay again.

Fabulous place to stay on Block!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Lynn's way for our families to stay with us during the week of our wedding on Block Island. The house is huge! It was a great spot. There is a huge yard, and the house is on a relatively quiet street not too far our of town. It was quiet and peaceful, yet close to everything we needed. The house is stocked with anything that you might need during your stay. The linen package made it super easy to accommodate all of our guests for a night. The property itself is beautiful- the front porch is so relaxing. The front yard is large, and perfect for relaxing in the hammock or any type of outdoor games.The deck on the second floor is also a great spot and you can see the water from up there. This house was absolutely perfect for us and our families. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Suzann and Frank were responsive and accommodating and I can't wait to go back!

A Fabulous Vacation at Lynn's Way

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of long-time Block Island vacationers and rented Lynn's Way for a 2 week stay because the property we usually get wasn't available. Our group fell in love with the house as soon as we got there and over the 2 weeks found it to be so comfortable and accommodating...with all the amenities we could possibly need, all contained within a charming (and large) house. The property was amazing...a great front lawn for pick up soccer and whiffle ball games and a huge picnic table for outdoor dining and star gazing at night. And we spent hours on the upper and lower front porches talking, reading and sharing stories well into the night. The rooms were well appointed and even the outdoor shower exceeded our expectations. And the best part of all was the great kitchen...we made a couple of large group dinners and everyone got to have their own station! The property is definitely walkable to town, though we did drive to the beach and the west side of the island. We've stayed at a lot of different properties over the years on Block Island and this is one of the best!
