Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Lewis Farmhouse is a recently-renovated, year-round home surrounded by 400 acres of conservation land. On Lewis Farm, our priority is living in compatibility with nature and protecting the rare plant and animal species that share our habitat. The house is simple but comfortable, suitable for quiet family vacations. It is set amidst rolling meadows and stone walls, with ocean views to the west, south and east. One can enjoy both spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the farmhouse. People who choose to vacation here thrive on peace and quiet, spectacular views, the large rolling lawn for family play, and the farm heritage.

The home's first floor has a mudroom, a well-equipped modern full kitchen, a living/dining room, bedroom and full bath. There is a covered porch to the east and an open deck to the south. The second floor has three bedrooms and a full bath. A laundry with both washer and dryer is in the basement; a clothes line is outside. Linens and towels can be provided for a modest charge.

The house has a telephone with local service, HD satellite TV, DSL wireless service, and stereo radio. Guests are allowed to bring one dog or one cat with them. A dog must be accompanied by an adult owner when it is outdoors.

Lewis Farm was actively farmed by the Lewis family from 1817 to 1964. Since that time, the Lewis family has been at the forefront of the island’s open space movement. Most of the land is now in conservation, and we strive to maintain the feel and low environmental impact of Block Island's farming heritage. The farm’s core is a cluster of seven dwelling units, most of them former farming structures; five are occupied by family. The Nature Conservancy and RI Audubon allow an islander to graze cattle on conserved land to the west and south.
