About David & Mary Threlkeld

We have been visiting Block Island for 50 years and are now delighted to have our own house on the island we love.

David & Mary Threlkeld purchased this house in 2014

Why David & Mary Threlkeld chose Rhode Island

Block Island is naturayl beautiful and despite its proximity to the busy east coast corridor has been able to preserve its uniqueness. It is rightfully described as one of the 12 least spoiled places in North America by the Nature Conservancy.

What makes this house unique

Blueberry Hill sits protected from its neighbors in 2 acres of lawn and trees. Its quite and peaceful yet a short distance from Town and the beaches.

Idyllic vacation venue

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Block Island for 10 years and this by far is the best place we have stayed. The home was spacious, well furnished, updated furniture, kitchen well stocked, clean! The yard was well maintained and with enough space for the children, not to mention the horses next door! The Jacuzzi was an immediate hit!!. The home is private and secluded which was perfect. The only thing missing - a fire pit, otherwise looking forward to return next year!!

Incredible vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to get away for 10-15 people.

The place has everything you could want: ample rooms, space to relax, hot tub, plenty of grass, and a great relaxing spot to sit outside around the fire. The place is secluded - which is wonderful. About 5-8 minutes from the ferry, very close to the OAR. You need a car to get to it - not just because of the distance, but because the road to the house is large loose gravel. You're sure to have a great time if you lease this place!
