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.

We stay at the Sheffield house for 6 nights in the rose mallow room #5. We really enjoyed our stayed - Diane was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and made us feel right at home. The room was spacious and had a nice breeze. Wished we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend this b&b and will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend on our first trip to Block Island and could not be happier. The owners are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are all updated and very comfortable. You sometimes wonder about noise with a B&B and this was not an issue at all. The care put in to the breakfast... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights on Block Island and highly recommend this place! Their current ranking doesn't do the place justice. Good stuff: - The Inn-keepers, Diane & Ed Hayde are the two of the most down-to-earth, kind, and genuine people you could interact with. They were so easy to talk to, welcoming, and easy going....

Sheffield House is nothing short of extraordinary! An impeccably maintained, crystal clean gem of a B & B surrounded by lush gardens with all the amenities one might hope to find in a stellar location set this place apart from the others. Upon arrival this weary traveler was greeting by frolicking flowers, stunning white wooden rocking chairs and wicker cushioned... More

This is my FAVORITE B&B on Block Island. Diane and her husband do such a good job running this place. Breakfast of hard boiled eggs and salmon (lox) among other things is served fresh every morning. It is very clean. Although there is no air conditioning (no place on Block Island has A/C b/c electricity is so expensive) they have... More

We have stayed at The Sheffield House several times over the last 10 years and I must say this year was a distinct improvement over the last several where a management company ran the day to day operation. The owners are back running the Sheffield and here are the differences: 1. Clean, clean, clean. No more little bit of sand... More
