Rooms 1-5 with Shared Bath

Established in 1984, the Sea Breeze is one of the loveliest of Block Island's small Inns. Originally used in the 1920's as a boarding house for the local fishing community. Overlooking bluffs on Spring Street and the eastern coast of the island. Convenient to the town of Old Harbor, shops, restaurants and the ferries, yet off the beaten path. Our staff provides a warm welcoming atmosphere. Ideally situated on two acres of protected land, with panoramic pond and ocean views. Guest rooms are inspired by a vibrant mix of authentic salvaged island furniture, colorful accents and handmade ceramics. 

The Inlet Cottage has 5 guest rooms with shared bath, reasonably priced for friends and family.  The first floor has three guestrooms and one shared bath. All bathrooms are recently renovated using porcelain and glass tiles. The second floor features a two room suite with one shared bath and sitting area. Rooms 3 and 5 have beautiful pond and ocean views, the rest have garden views. Simple, understated, with original island charm and detail and surrounded by nature. Rates include a free continental breakfast each morning.


Rooms 6-10 with Private Bath

We have 5 rooms with private bath, all with private entrances and private porches or sitting area. Featuring a spacious honeymoon suite with stunning pond and ocean views. Surrounded by lush seaside perennial gardens.

Sea Breeze provides a casual New England retreat from modern day life.  We limit our amenities to protect the island's fragile resources. You will not find any tv's, radios, wi-fi, or air-conditioning in our rooms. By keeping it simple we offer lower rates, at the same time helping conserve Block Island's peaceful beauty.  Two night minimum requirement minimizes wastefulness on our end. Three night minimum required on all holidays, to lessen the impact of high season.

Our complimentary continental breakfast is made fresh each morning using organic, fair trade, and local ingredients. Daily housecleaning service. Art from Sea Breeze Gallery. On-site bike rentals.


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 adventurous traveler looking to find a more intimate and simple island setting, with pond and ocean vistas that are both invigorating and restorative. Committed to providing our guests with a real "get-away" Block Island experience. Read our reviews and see for yourself what makes us special.
