Block Island Gatherings, Weddings and Events

Now booking for 2019 and 2020!*

Hosting your intimate get-together or oceanside soirée at Block Island Beach House is a celebration like no other. Centered around fostering connections between family, friends, and those that are both, the Beach House will forever be a time capsule for your happy memories. With multiple gathering spaces (and plenty of reasons to party) you’re free to create an experience that is uniquely your own.

Oceanfront Porch, Porch Bar & Patio

  • Minimum: 60 People
  • Seated Maximum: 110 People
  • Cocktail reception: 100 People

Sweeping ocean views from every angle is just one of the reasons this the best spot on the island to host your family and friends. While our uncovered patio is perfect for soaking up the afternoon sun, our covered oceanfront porch is protected from the elements so you’ll never have to worry about any last minute surprises from Mother Nature. Outfitted with solid wood tables, hanging lanterns, and quirky accents like books and blankets, this inviting space becomes a magical backdrop for any occasion. As our largest and most versatile option (aside from a whole-property rental—can we tempt you?) this space can accommodate cocktail parties, seated dinners, or a combination of both. Smaller parties may prefer the Oceanfront Porch for seated celebrations, the Porch Bar & Patio for lively cocktail parties, and the Surf Shack for intimate gatherings.

The Surf Whole Property Rental

Truly your very own Block Island beach house—but better. With a team entirely dedicated to your experience, your own Coffee & Cocktails restaurant, dinner and drinks for up to 100 of your people, welcome cocktails and a farewell brunch, exclusive use of our beach bar, oceanfront patio, indoor lounging space, village-view porch, and of course our front yard... the sand! Make this Block Island Beach House your own for the event of a lifetime.

Coming for the 2020 Season:

Surf Shack

  • Maximum Seated: 30 people
  • Cocktail reception: 20 People

Set just steps from the sand, exclusive but in the middle of it all, our Surf Shack is the place to unwind with your crew in any way you see fit. Whether an intimate sunset dinner, an après-beach gathering, a meeting in the world’s coolest boardroom, or a boozy brunch (because everyday is a weekend when you’re on island time), the wall of oceanfront windows and heirloom furnishings can be arranged so the vibe is just right. Welcoming parties of as few as 2 to as many as 30 for either half-day or whole-day rentals, the Surf Shack is our favorite place for making memories.
