Long Weekend on Block Island with kids

We have been going to block island for years. The one time we have brought the kids we rented a house with other families and stayed a week. This summer it will just be us and two kids. Where are the best places to stay???

You have a lot of options, depending on the time you wish to visit. July and the first three weeks of August are the busiest times, so I would recommend booking something now

You can rent a house by the week from any one of the real estate agents on the island. There are seven agencies on the island and they all still have homes available for various weeks.

You could rent a small cottage, apartment, condo or efficiency from many of the Inns or Hotels; the Chamber of Commerce can direct you to one of those (800-383-2474.)

Inns that have larger units include the island Manor, Neptune House, Spring House, Barrington Inn, The Darius, Sullivan House, 1661 Inn (Smugglers), Belleview House and the Gothic Inn

There are two more accommodations that may work for you. The Hygeia House Inn has suites that would work well for a family. There is also a B&B called Sandy's House that has a family suite.

When you are on island with the kids, make sure you visit the Abrams Animal Farm as well as North Light Fibers. They are right next door to one another and both very fun and interesting.

The Block Island Maritime Institute, or BIMI, has great touch tanks for kids with all kinds of creatures. Right nearby is a kayak rental which older kids (over 5) may love.
