My husband and I decided at the last minute to go away for our 10th wedding anniversary and what better place to get away then Shells by the Sea. It was probably our 6th time there and it's like a second home. Shell and Ned are like family. And we got to meet the guard of the house Remy -... More

First,the rooms are well maintained and elegant. Second, the food is incredible. And Shell will make your breakfast unforgettable. Third, if you like dogs you'll love Remy! That is if he leaves Shell's side!!! Fourth , the pool is a salt water paradise. My wife and I have stayed here at least 6 times. Whenever we need to relax and... More

our second trip to Shells was as pleasant and comfortable as was the first, 5 years ago. We travel often, so a quiet, pleasant, comfortable and clean place to "bunk in" for the night is very important. Shells is all of those. Rooms are quite comfortable, pleasant surroundings, a very clean house (we take our shoes off, just like in... More

We called ahead to plan our visit, and we were told that it was ok to bring our 6 year old daughter. Bad idea, not kid friendly. The so called B and B was more like a visit to someone's house, nothing like the one's we've been to before, and we've been to quite a few. Also, their expectations and... More

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
