My wife and I stayed here for two days shortly after Christmas, for a quick post-holiday getaway. Our daughter had attended Yale a few years earlier, and we were familiar with New Haven, but not as familiar with the surrounding area. Our loss! The Kelsey House B&B is a small gem, with great views of the water and nicely set... More

The Kelsey House B&B offers a step back in time with the beautiful Victorian house perched high on the rocky shore at Payne's Point with gorgeous views from it's porch and it's rooms! Our comfortable room with it's many windows made me feel as though we were at sea. Each day and at every hour the sight of the water,... More

Ken and Sue greeted us with real warmth. As we entered the house, we caught the aroma of fresh baking. Our cozily furnished room overlooked Long Island Sound - stunning views complete with small sailboats and soft sunsets. Great rooms to settle in and relax, and a classical veranda equipped with inviting rocking chairs. The Olsons know how to make... More

Upon booking our stay, Sue was very prompt with email communication & correspondence and went above and beyond to recommend local eateries, activities and even guidance on travel from the airport.

The Kelsey House B&B is a lovely respite. The view from the master bedroom is outstanding. Watching the tide come in an go out on the porch below, listening to the sea gulls and gazing at the island across the water is almost hypnotic. Even this doesn't compare to the fabulous breakfast of homemade muffins, fresh fruit, the individual baked... More

My sister and I visited the Kelsey House for one night during the late summer and it was just lovely. We had a room on the second floor with 2 twin beds. It was clean and comfortable. The bathroom is located a few steps to the left outside of the bedroom. It wasn't a deal breaker for us. The bathroom... More

We had a girls' vacation (three of us) at The Kelsey House earlier this week. What a find!! It sits right on the water, with a wrap around porch. The view is so beautiful and it's so quiet. There are rocking chairs and other comfy seats, and tables. There are even blankets if it gets chilly. It's so peaceful. We... More

Have you ever liked a place so much you did't want anyone else to know about it? The house is a jewel, the setting is magic and the inn keepers are a dream. We spent the Labor Day weekend reading on the porch, watching the local parade and trying out the local fish restaurants. We don't want to leave. We... More

The Kelsey house B & B is an amazing retreat. The views are spectacular and ideal for anybody wanting a weekend break to chill out, romantic break or to get their creative juices flowing again. The scenery is spectacular and you can sit on the balcony watching the Osprey , Cormorant and Egrets flying around with the odd canoe or... More
