We had our wedding at Payne's last spring. We went back and forth so many times on the venue, but then we had an epiphany when we remembered the first place we had stayed on Block and were immediately hooked on having it at Payne's Harbor View Inn.
The view from up on this hill, overlooking the harbor and Payne's dock is just spectacular. We had the reception our back on the lawn and the cake-cutting and dancing inside. It was laid-back and encompassed everything that Block Island is to us.
Carol is absolutely lovely and was so accommodating! We live in Europe, so it was quite a challenge organizing a wedding from the other side of the ocean. But Carol always went above and beyond to help us out!
The rooms are so clean and decorated beautifully with antiques. Everyone loved their rooms! The bridal suite is HUGE and has the most dreamy terrace.
