O-W-N a Piece of The Block!
This New England Victorian-era island is just a 13 mile, one hour ferry ride off the Rhode Island-Connecticut coast. Enjoy lighthouses and Victorian architecture, boutique-type shopping, great seafood and gourmet cuisine, bicycling, hiking, horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, sailing, and nature walks. Resort amenities include full kitchens in every unit, outdoor barbecues, indoor pool, outdoor tennis courts, pool table, DirecTV, and complimentary WIFI and a movie library with more than 300 titles. A car is recommended but is not necessary as taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. (You need a ferry reservation for the car). Or walk the 15 minutes from the ferry to the resort at the quiet end of Connecticut Avenue. Off-season “On the Block” is particularly lovely…with the June to September crowds gone you can truly enjoy the island’s quiet beauty and nature. Neptune House is a small resort, known in the timeshare industry as a ’boutique resort having just 23 vacation condos. The Victorian building’s beautiful architecture is a Queen Anne style (very popular BI Mansard roof). Originally built in the 1870’s it was a Victorian era single family private mansion that became a vacation ownership timeshare resort in the mid 1980’s. Victorian buildings are asymmetrical in nature hence each vacation condo has a different layout. Block Island is laid back so the accommodations ‘on island’ are also easy going and ‘unfussy’. And you’ll find no chain hotels like Marriott or Holiday Inn, no chain restaurants like Applebee’s or McDonalds, no chain stores like Home Depot or CVS, and no traffic lights. But that is why people like the few places on earth that are still like Block Island – nature’s paradise with just a bit more than the bare necessities – for a trip to Block Island is not meant to be spent in your unit but outdoors walking, hiking, bike riding, kayaking, fishing, boating, bird watching, wildflower and insect/animal viewing, some of which exist no other place on earth than here. Seeing the 365 f-r-e-s-h water ponds (this far out into the Atlantic Ocean), the two boat harbors, and observing how life is on an island 13 miles out to sea serviced daily by ferry with its residents somewhat insulated from life ‘In America’ as they like to call it. If you want golf courses and shopping malls then you won’t like a visit to Block Island. If you want fresh (and I mean
F-R-E-S-H ) lobster you can meet the lobster boats at 4-5 pm when they pull into the harbor and buy right from them. The November timeframe has the seals basking in the sun on the rocks having migrated here from Canada for BI’s ‘warm’ water! And in April you can see the thousands (yes thousands) of daffodils and narcissus in bloom under the pine trees in ‘the Maze’ overlooking the Bluffs. Two lighthouses, each very different, and one was actually moved several hundred feet from the edge of the cliffs just before it was to fall into the sea due to erosion. If you want to hear ‘quiet’, the wind, marvel at the beauty of Mother Nature, and refresh and rejuvenate yourself in this so busy-noisy-chaotic world then you must come to this ‘last remaining piece of paradise.’
For those that have been captivated by BI’s magic they are hooked and come back every year, year after year.
