    Dewey Cottage is located along a busy road, close to the beach, several restaurants,a coffee shop, a bank and a grocery store. You can walk to "downtown" from there. Remember that there are no amenties at the cottage itself: no air conditioning, no hair dryer, no laundry, no breakfast, no concierge, no staff. All of those advertised services are at the main inn, which is almost a mile away on the other side of town. The large bathroom does not have even a shelf to put a toothbrush on, just the back of the toilet. One towel bar. This is a sort of charming but very basic accommodation for the price conscious, and not that cheap. Our room had holes around the windows and we had yellow jackets in the room every day. After trying to plug the voids for a few days, we asked to be moved and were accommodated.. Save up and stay at the main properties instead.

    Beyond Amazing!

    We stayed at Dewey2 which was on the first floor. Although the room was not fancy or had a view, the bed was comfortable, clean and cozy. Although not as fancy as other inns, the price and extras provided by the 1661 Inn was well worth it! The customer service was top notch! Every staff member went above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and meet all your needs! Included in the affordable price was a complimentary wine & cheese/fruit buffet at 4pm — Perfect to start our night off! Also included was an amazing breakfast buffet with mimosas and the the best fresh spread I’ve seen..made to order omelettes, pancakes and homemade blueberry sauce, pastries and more! And the view was breath taking!! To top it all off, they also provided their facilities for us to shower and change.. even fresh towels/shampoo after we had checked out and before heading home on the ferry! Simply amazing! Perfect! Thank you for a great stay!

    Exceptional getaway accommodations!

    We were very happy with our stay at Dewey Cottage. We had never been to Block Island and chose it as part of our 30th anniversary celebration. We had never stayed at a B&B and weren't sure what to expect. This was a truly different experience, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though our room was a walk up to the 3rd floor, we enjoyed the peacefulness and privacy the cottage offered. We enjoyed the front porch and the small community kitchen. When we booked this location, we were not aware that breakfast was at the 1661 Inn, but any inconvenience was outweighed by the amazing breakfast and the wonderful service provided by the staff at the inn. On top of all that, we were delighted to find out the inn provided afternoon refreshments, which we enjoyed along with the ocean view on the patio. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend to anyone planning a getaway to Block Island.
