There is something about buildings such as the Spring House Hotel on Block Island, Rhode Island. The architecture is unique. It is termed as "Victorian" but is probably more accurately described as "Distinctive Island Victorian"; it reflects the era with the personal touches of the people who built it. It is from the seaside and offshore but in the island's countryside. Perhaps this is why we find these places to escape. They are elegant, unique, and display welcoming folk-art; defying convention while embracing another time.

The island architecture is always an interesting mix with a mansard roof, distinctive 360-degree view cupola, and maritime quarterboard signage.
