While checking into my hotel (the Surf) I asked the staff where to go for great cocktails and a view (better than the Surf?!) I was directed to Spring House. We made our way up the hill and stumbled onto a gem. The grounds- impeccable. The service- bar none. Had lunch at the outside bar (lobster roll and pizza both...

I have dined at the Spring House many times and have always been charmed by the setting and delighted by the meal served. The ocean view from the top of the hill is breathtaking. Sipping on the veranda, bathed in the gentle sea breaze is so relaxing. The scallops in a salad or the main course, my favorite, have always...

Went here for dinner while visiting Block Island and the setting is so so beautiful. The hotel overlooks the sound and it is just incredible. There was a 45 minute wait the night we were there but nobody cared because it was so nice to sit on the porch or on the Adirondack chairs on the lawn. We had a...

After visiting Block Island for years, I finally booked a stay at the gorgeous Spring House. I booked the stay with two other friends, and requested rooms next to each other, with air conditioning. Upon check in, we found that my room didn't have AC, nor were we next to our friends. The hotel was full, and there was no...

The spring house is beautiful hotel with very good food. I went there on a spring vacation so I don't know how it would be in the summer without the AC. I wish they had rooms with two double beds so we could have rented less rooms. Overall, a great stay!

A Grand Historic Hotel with sweeping views, but don't be fooled in to thinking you will get luxury accommodations that go along with the highly priced room rates.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Spring House Hotel, built in 1852, is Block Island's largest and oldest hotel. Set atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean as well as the spring from which we take our name, the property provides views which cannot be beat. Being a ten minute walk from Old Harbor, the Spring House provides an oasis which can be enjoyed from our Adirondack chairs, wrap-around porch, and East overlook patio. Great pride is taken in our seed-to-table mission in both of our two on-site restaurants. Three gardens and a greenhouse provide fresh produce creating delicious dining options on both our Dining Room and Bistro menus. Simply choose your preference of formal or casual food and setting upon arrival. Indoor and outdoor seating is available for both. Between the Main Building and the Mott House (an Annex Building located 20 yards away), there are 50 hotel rooms to rent, ranging from 1-bed standards up to studios and suites. Two apartments and four houses are also available to rent on property, as well as off-property Town Homes. Block Island thrives during the summer, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During this time, all of the above-listed dining and hotel options are available. Outside of this time frame, the Dining Room menu is closed. The Bistro menu remains open along with the Main Building Hotel from April through October. The Spring House Hotel provides a beautiful setting for weddings and special events which are frequently hosted on the weekends. In the effort to provide our nuptial couples the exclusive setting, our food and beverage outlets may be closed during these events. During the off-season (November-April), the Main Building Hotel is closed and only our Barn Suites and Houses are available for rent. Last winter was the grand opening of The Barn Restaurant, providing an intimate dining experience Wednesdays-Sundays for dinner only. The restaurant, fitting only 30-35 patrons, features an open-concept kitchen and a truly unique experience. ... more   less
