If you have never worked on Block Island before and you do need housing, you should know that this is one of the most difficult aspects of working on Block Island. It is hard to find and expensive. We do provide housing for most of our staff but it is dorm style housing, most of which is located on our property. There are two to four people to a bedroom with six to a bathroom. There are no kitchen facilities. The cost is $75-$125 per week depending on the type of job you have; dishwashers and housekeepers pay $75, waitstaff and bartenders pay $125.
