Block Island is not only small, but remote. The island lies 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, with a rugged terrain, perfect for hiking and biking. Approximately 40% of the island has been designated conservation land. Part of the Sea Breeze property has been donated to The Land Trust of Block Island. An ideal spot for the more adventurous traveler looking to find an intimate island setting, with pond and ocean vistas that are both invigorating and restorative.

We are not developers set to change the look and feel of Block Island. The Sea Breeze started as a family vision with The Sea Breeze Gallery in 1980. Today, in 2017, the same family of artists still cherish the location, history and authentic identity of Block Island. Our guests choose The Sea Breeze as a simple get-away from modern life. Read our press reviews to gain more insight or give us a call or email us and we will be happy to answer your questions.

We will be re-opening on May 4th, 2017.  We are now accepting reservation requests for the upcoming season. Please call or email us daily between the hours of 10am and 6pm for availability and rates.

We hope to welcome you soon to Block Island.
