My husband and I just got back from a trip to Narragansett and a stay at Shells by the Sea. We absolutely loved this beautiful B&B. Shell was extremely accommodating and made this B&B warm, inviting, friendly, and comfortable. Our room was gorgeous and the whole house was spotless. Shell made delicious breakfasts for everyone each morning and constantly encouraged... More

We travelled to Shells By The Sea with our almost 10 year old nephew and stayed in the attic suite. We could not have been more comfortable. Everything was so nice, and we especially enjoyed the beautiful yard and pool. Added bonus--the cutest little dog, Remy! Extremely well behaved and friendly.

Where do I start...The B&B is beautiful, inviting, clean, spacious and the breakfasts were delectable!! The grounds around the salt water pool were amazing. The pool was so relaxing. Shell made us feel welcomed every step of the way and always encouraged us to enjoy her beautiful home. One of the highlights of our stay was being greeted by Prince... More

The quiet atmosphere and warm welcome will have us making a return trip. Remi was just the cutest puppy ever! The heated salt water pool was absolute heaven to lounge in and relax. If you like a quiet place to stay 10 minutes from downtown Naragansett, Shells By the Sea is the place for you. We look forward to coming... More

Shells by the Sea was incredibly accommodating to our group of 6 coworkers! Rooms were clean and spacious and breakfast was delicious (even with several dietary restrictions from our group). We felt welcomed and had plenty of room to work on projects and hold meetings throughout our stay. Thanks, Shell!

We had the most wonderful time at Shells By The Sea. They have the most wonderful little dog Remmy who is so very friendly and sweet. Everything was so neat and clean and beautifully decorated and we were very happy with our rooms. We enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool and the grounds are amazing. We will definitely be coming... More

The "four Troublemakers from URI" as our group came to be called all agreed on the wonderful, immaculate and relaxed "situation" we enjoyed at Shells by the Sea. Warm hosts and a friendly little dog escorted us to a large inviting pool where we spent time visiting and splashing through the late afternoon. The grounds are beautifully maintained creating a...

The warmth of Shell and Remmy greeting you at the door made me relax asap. We met two other couples on our trip of July 2013, went back in August 2013 and again this July (met up with the same two couples) and had a great time! Can't wait for the summer 0f 2015!! mk

We love coming to Narragansett but have always had trouble finding a nice play to stay. Our search ended when we found Shells By The Sea. The rooms were quiet, spacious and comfortable. The house is immaculate and the grounds are manicured to perfection. The pool is an added bonus and great for hanging out and relaxing. You're five minutes... More

Wanted a place that was clean, comfortable, and convenient. Found all that and more. Shell and Ned were such gracious hosts- breakfast was delicious and thoughtful. Really nice pool and backyard. The ambience was perfect for our weekend away!
