My husband and I were searching for a place to stay for our 20th wedding anniversary...last minute, no planning ahead! Shells by the Sea happened to have a room open. I had never heard of Shells or seen it...did not know what to expect! We were pleasantly surprised by Shell, Ned and their beautiful, sparkling B&B! We were instantly welcomed... More

Shell and Ned are terrific hosts, and our weekend was "just what the doctor ordered" to recharge our batteries. The food was so delicious and the heated salt water pool was the best! What a beautiful home they have and it feels like home when you first walk in. Definitely coming back very soon. Thank you both for making our... More

The owners were very nice and made us feel welcome in their home. Although there is not that much privacy in certain rooms, it was fun anyway because all my friends had booked other rooms. The pool was nice, as well as the hidden hammock out back. The basement was very cozy as well with a pool table. I would... More

I stayed here for one night and thought it was perfect. The property is immaculately maintained and the hosts unusually responsive and friendly. My room was very comfortable, with an excellent bed and a private bathroom. I would certainly stay again if in the area.

Plenty of room indoors and out for relaxing, reading and conversation. This B&B Worked out perfectly for us staying the weekend for a family wedding event. Hostess was very solicitous, if slightly over-familiar for our Northeast sensibilities. :-)

My husband and i went to this lovely place with another couple. This was my first B&B and it was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend it. Only a few minutes to the beach and close the Block Island ferry. The room and bathroom were cozy and super clean. We were lucky to stay in the downstair room where we also... More

Lucky to find this place to stay during holiday weekend. Immaculate house; good location; Shel and Ned are wonderful hosts. Shel is quite a cook. There's a huge pool and they even have a well-equipped fitness room in the finished basement.
