Sheffield House is in a perfect location. It's in a quieter area but is still a very easy walk from the ferry and the town where all of the restaurants and shops are. There is also a beach that is within walking distance. It's also a very beautiful Victorian with very clean and nice rooms with any of the amenities... More

This quiet and elegant Inn on high street is the perfect getaway for a romantic couple. There is a general store right across the street and it's only a short walk into town. Lovely choice for the price.

My wife and I stayed for one night last week and had a great time. The B&B is about a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal in Old Harbor and a great central location to explore the island by foot. We arrived to find nice landscaping and a nice, clean room. They offer some rooms with a shared bathroom... More

The Sheffield House was a perfect spot for a weekend getaway. It is an easy walk from the ferry and is very conveniently located. We were in walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We stayed in a downstairs bedroom with a private bathroom and everything was very clean and comfortable. The room was cheerful, well lit, and had a... More

The Sheffield house is a short walk from the ferry. Located on the quieter side of the main part of town but close to restaurants and attractions. Near to the empire theater and Abrams animal farm we didn't need our bikes much for getting around. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom had modern fixtures and was...

My husband I stayed at the Sheffield House by happy accident because another favorite B&B that we love was all filled up. The Sheffield House is a lovely, convenient place to stay on Block Island. There are only 6 rooms, all very small, but hey your on the island to go around and do things. You'll probably only be at... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sheffield House for a weekend trip to Block Island and were very happy with our stay. The house is conveniently located just a few minutes from the town center but in a quieter location. Diane was very nice and welcoming, and made fantastic scones for breakfast that accompanied other options. We very much... More

B&B is walking distance to town. Home is nice & quiet with an outside porch furnished with comfortable chairs. Bedrooms are nice sized and comfortable. The best feature of this B&B though is the owners. Ed & Diane and wonderful, friendly people. We came as guests and left as friends.
