About Arnie Flaig

I am a long time owner of my Block Island house and have recently moved back to the island from Stonington, Ct. I rent seasonally by the night, week and weekend and 6 months in the winter while residing in my studio apartment. Retired from the corporate world, my interests are woodworking, travel, and the pursuit of a healthy, nutritious lifestyle.

Arnie Flaig purchased this apartment in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the second and third floor and especially liked the fact that the 3rd floor had a seperate privacy entrance we could retreat to and still be part of the festvities on the second floor. Very nicely decorated and super clean with all the ammenties. It rented like a hotel, so all the housekeeping was included! One less thing to worry about when getting ready to leave. Highly recommended!

Out family of five had a wonderful time on Block Island while staying at Arnie's place.

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. Arnie lives on the property so it he was always around if we had questions. Pleasant walk to Old Harbor or New Harbor in about 20 to 25 minutes. Comfortable outdoor furniture in shade of large trees for relaxing away from the beach. Second floor apartment has its own deck with seating for four and grill. Sleeps four comfortably, five when using living room futon,
