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.  A car is not necessary on the island at our location.

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.

We are fully booked for all remaining weekends through August 18th, 2017.  We do have limited mid-week availability from Sunday through Thursday nights, with less expensive rates. For personal service, please call or email us between the hours of 10am and 6pm for availability. Reservations for 2018 will begin in January of 2018.

Thank you!

We hope to welcome you soon to Block Island.
