Block Island Beach House: Elopements and Intimate Weddings

Off the coast of Rhode Island, you’ll find a little oasis called Block Island. Right off the ferry you’ll see the Block Island Beach House. Disconnected from the United States by land, the little island is about 10 miles off the coast of Newport RI. If you’re not one for the big wedding ceremony and reception, an intimate Block Island wedding or elopement is totally for you.

There are so many venues for big outdoor weddings on Block Island — like the Sullivan House, the Spring House, and more. That said, there are also these beautiful little spots on the island for the intimate wedding of your dreams.

Block Island Beach House: The Surf

A boutique hotel right in town, the Block Island Beach House offers beautiful ocean views and the perfect setting for special events. Although the wedding venue doesn’t offer traditional wedding days, traditional weddings are kind of for the birds. Just in town, elope anywhere on the island, head out for something a little adventurous (think parasailing, helicopter rides, exotic animal tours), and head out to dinner and ice cream after.

The hotel is a historic piece of property brought back to its glory by Lark Hotels. Preserving some of the architecture and historical touches (that tin in the dining room!) the Surf has become one of the most coveted hotels on the island.

Block Island Beach House: The Gables

A full-service boutique hotel with a pool, the Gables is another historical property right on Dodge Street. With updated rooms, the inn has been brought to life by Lark Hotels.

Our Favorite Rooms at the Block Island Beach House

1) Surf Building Dog-Friendly King Bed Suites

If you’re like me and bringing your dog is a must, stay at one of the suites on the first floor. With a private entrance/exit straight onto Dodge Street, you’ve got an expansive suite to chill out in, with easy access to all that downtown has to offer.

2) The Cottage at the Gables

By far my favorite place to stay if you’re thinking about a Block Island elopement. The cottage has tons of space and a huge bathtub for you to enjoy, relax and sink into those just married feels.

3) Private Poolside Suites at the Gables

Although I’m sure you’d want to soak up every second until check out time at either of these suites, there’s so much on island to see and enjoy!

4) Top Floor Suites at the Surf

Catch some of the most incredible views from the top of the Surf. With large suites, and expansive views, you’ll have one of the best spots on island to catch sunrise or sunset.

The Private Dining Room at the Surf for a Block Island Intimate Wedding

Just next to the beach bar, you’ll find a private dining room that is perfect for an intimate wedding under 20 of your favorite people. Although typically used for rehearsal dinners, this spot is perfect for an intimate wedding.
