A visit to Block Island is a step back in time, to a slower pace where you can easily refresh and unwind
The Gables Inn is only a two minute walk from the beach. We are located at the edge of the village, near restaurants, shops, bike rentals, churches, and the town movie theatre. The Gables, built around 1860, has been carefully renovated and furnished to retain a Victorian charm and decor. Ornate tin ceilings, lace curtains, and old fashioned flowered wallpaper enhance the antiques found throughout the inn.
After spending a day at the beach, or biking around the island you can return and relax in one of our three parlors or sit in one of the many rocking shairs on our shaded veranda.
Awaken each morning to the aroma of a complimentary light continental breakfast which includes pastries, fresh fruit, juice, and coffee. There are grilles and picnic tables located on the grassy grounds of the Gables.
We hope that you will join our many guests who return every year for a vacation of care free relaxstion. Come and enjoy the peace, the beaches, nature preserves, and historical treasures of Block Island while staying in the relaxed Victorian accomodations of the Gables Inn. Barbara and Stanley Nyzio, your hosts, will make you feel that this is your "home away from home", during your visit.
