The Blue Dory
The Blue Dory Inn, one of the premier Block Islands inns by the sea, welcomes you to one of the most well-known turn of the century Victorian charms on Block Island. The Blue Dory Inn sits at the head of the famous Crescent Beach and is only a short walking distance to the ferry, fine restaurants and Island shops. Join us in the eat-in kitchen for a delicious full breakfast buffet. Then grab a towel and chair and follow the short path from our back door right down to Crescent beach, with its miles of unspoiled beauty. After a day at the beach, relax in the Blue Dory parlor where wine, hors d'oeuvres and our famous Blue Dory cookies are served every afternoon. The Blue Dory has a lengthy history of a resident feline; our newest addition is the snuggly and infinitely entertaining little Simon." Eleven spacious guestrooms in the Blue Dory provide views of the ocean or the historic town. All the rooms have private baths, carpeting and feature antique décor.
