(Bonus: the owners don’t mind if you grab a few eggs for breakfast, harvest some fresh herbs to complement your dinner or pick some fresh vegetables for a garden salad.)

Cost: $125 per night

Sleeps: 4 people

The Features: This sweet cottage, located on the Ponaganset Reservoir, is an ideal spot for swimming, fishing and relaxing on a private patch of sand. Take in the sights and sounds of nature, cook dinner outside on the grill, make s’mores in the fire pit, kayak around the reservoir and more. The cabin faces west, so you’ll be able to enjoy spectacular sunsets while sitting on the deck enjoying a drink after a long day’s work of kicking back in the great outdoors.

Spunky Providence Loft

Cost: $85 per night

Sleeps: 2 people

The Features: This rental is located in the John Lansbury House as listed with the Providence Preservation Society and was built in 1852. The space boasts cathedral ceilings, a small, but spunky kitchen, a deck and one of the strangest chimney’s you will ever see. The bed is nook-and-crannied into the wall and is shielded by blue, velvet-like curtains. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything but mid-century modern decor in this loft, and although the house may have old bones, the style breathes a new life in to the space.

Block Island Bluff House

Cost: $1,000 per night

Sleeps: 7 people

The Features: This modern home, which is perched high above the Mohegan bluffs and has unmatched views of the Atlantic Ocean, offers a load of space, a green roof deck, twenty-five-foot-high ceilings and as we’d like to think – an escape from reality. You’ll feel like you’re always outside here, as the large pane-less windows give way to stunning ocean views during the day and glimpses of the moon and stars at night. The home also features an outdoor shower and a large lawn leading up to the bluff,  a beautiful kitchen and plenty of beds to bring the whole family along. It’s truly the perfect spot for privacy and total R and R.
