Quaint little inn with gorgeous views and awesome brunch, in a great location. They own a few other properties on the island as well and each include brunch. They also offer free transportation to and from the ferry/airport if needed.

Thank you for the nice review and we are glad that you enjoyed our champagne buffet breakfast! Just for clarity for other folks reading this...We do provide return service to the ferries and airport upon departure only. We look forward to your next visit!

For the past five or more years, we have been coming back for our annual visit to Block Island. We have always stayed with 1661 in one of their other buildings away from kids. Our obvious choice is their Anchor House Inn, just 50 feet...More

We actually stayed at Dewey Cottage. The breakfast and wine is served at the 1661 Inn. We walked from the cottage.

We walked. It was around a mile or so. There is a bit of uphill. It rained one day and the 1661 sent a van for us. There is parking at the cottage. We did not brind a car, but did rent one for a day.
