Step Back in Time

Discover Block Island’s unspoiled beaches, 200 foot cliffs, freshwater ponds and lush rolling hills under a quilt of wildflowers, described by The Nature Conservancy as “one of the last 12 great places in the Western Hemisphere.” Block Island is miles away from ordinary, and the historic 1661 Inn is no exception. An intimate collection of 73 rooms and suites spread over nine distinct properties in a resort-like environment, you will find comfort, relaxation, and friendly hosts working to ensure that your stay is as memorable as Block Island itself.  Owned & operated by the Abrams & Draper families since 1970.


I almost do not want to post a review as this is such an awesome place, I would want to keep it from being over-run! However, I will say that the Block Island experience is made so much more incredible because of the hospitality and warmth of the 1661 owners and staff, not to mention the fabulous brunch, ocean views, relaxed and quiet atmosphere. No reason to ever stay anywhere else! Lots of different type accommodations to choose from - affordable, great location.

Stayed a week at the Dodge Cottage of the 1661 Inn. Clean, convenient, affordable with full breakfast included. Amazing champagne breakfast with all the fixings to be enjoyed on the enclosed porch or flower lined patio.

We have stayed here several times over the past 14 yrs and every visit they are nicer than the previous visit. They are the most hospitable family ever. The room was gorgeous. The breakfast was delicious as always. There is nothing they won't do to make your stay perfect. The family and their help are awesome!
