Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Really cool little cottage - pretty close to town.

Pros:

1. We rode our bikes in (no car) - we were about 1.9 miles to the ferry - it was a really doable ride for the kids (age 10 and 11).

2. It's on a pond, literally right out the door. My kids loved it. (so did we)

3. the owners are very responsive (great emailers and will help with anything)

4. it's very private

5. Beds were comfy

Cons:

I want to point out there's not a lot of cons to this place - I'm only writing the below to help out further renters.

We were told to bring sheets and towels and toiletries - no biggie - but when we got there, there wasn't any toilet paper. My brain equated toiletries with soap, shampoo, and toothpaste not toilet paper. So anyway, after traveling all day I had to jump back on my bike to grab toilet paper. (also no hand towels or kitchen towels) So don't make my mistake, stop by the store before you get there.

Anyway, I couldn't recommend this place more. Glenn and Karen made our BI stay very comfortable.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love block Island, we have been going for years and this is by far the best, cleanest, coziest cottage on the island! We genuinely love everything about the cottage. The location, the duck pond, everything! My kids still talk about it (specially the ducks!) and can't wait to go back in just a few short weeks! We highly, highly recommend this cottage and renting from Karen and Glen (the owners) they were awesome!!!!

Great place on Block

  • 5 of 5

wonderful time staying at the cottage. Karen (the owner) is lovely and was very accommodating. My son had a wonderful time feeding the ducks in the pod behind the house. We'd definitely go back!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly what my two boys and I were looking for. The location is great...not far from the main beach or town. Easy to bike ride. The pond was very relaxing - my son got to know the resident goose who would come calling every day for stale bread. The house location was private on a well-groomed area.

The house was very quaint and cozy. The boys enjoyed the bunk-beds and the open living area with kitchen and TV. We arrived to a very clean house with fresh flowers on the table. The nights were very comfortable with cross-breezes. This particular week was extremely hot overall but we never felt uncomfortable - that said from a family that is use to using AC throughout the summer.

I chose to clean the house before leaving rather than hiring the maid service. The cottage is a nice size to be able to do this on my own without the extra cleaning expense. Having the washer and dryer was fantastic. My preference was to hang clothes/towels on the outside line but, again this particular week, there was a great deal of fog that came through in the evenings that kept things a bit damp. Being able to use the dryer for a quick dry was very convenient.

I highly recommend staying at the cottage. BIRI has become an annual vacation place for my family. We plan to reserve the cottage again for future stays.
