359 High St New Shoreham
Victorian charm on Block Island
Perched atop a hill just above town, the Atlantic Inn truly offers the best of locations: boasting both peacefulness and proximity. While the majority of shops, restaurants, and ferries are just a short 7-minute stroll away, the six-acre property offers quiet surroundings of rolling lawns and carefully tended gardens. The lofty location also offers stunning water views and fresh ocean breezes.
Our Rooms & Cottage Suites
Each of the Atlantic Inn’s 21 rooms reflects the Victorian spirit of the circa 1879 building, and are individually decorated with antiques, floral fabrics, and wallcoveringos. All accommodations are located on the second and third floors of our building and are accessible by stairs only.
Each room is cozy and welcoming has a private bath and is fully heated. None of the rooms in the main house have television or air conditioning. They do have fans, and we are fortunate to be on top of a hill that offers plentiful ocean breezes.
Looking for more space than a traditional hotel room? Our Cottage Suite is located directly behind our main building and provides more space for your party. This comfortable, open studio is located on the first floor and features a Kitchenette (stovetop but no oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and fridge), full bath, and a sunny open layout with a King Sized Bed and a Double Pullout Sofa.
The Atlantic Inn’s Restaurant 1879 is proud to welcome you to Block Island’s most renowned fine dining experience. Relax and enjoy our unobtrusive, unhurried service and creative, seasonal cuisine.
Chef Denny Gomes offers ever changing menus featuring the very best local purveyors have sourced. In addition to our traditional dinner menu, a vegetarian menu is always available. All accompanied by creative craft cocktails and our Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence winning wine list.
A visit to Block Island would not be complete without enjoying a spectacular sunset from our gracious veranda or sprawling lawn dotted with Adirondack chairs.
