Five of us spent four nights over the July 4 holiday weekend with Shell and Ned. The hospitality was unbeatable and we were so fortunate to get reservations for three gorgeous rooms in this fabulous home. Our stay could not have been more perfect. Breakfasts were amazing...custom made omelettes, egg scramble, home made muffins, waffles, eggs benedict and fresh fruit...

We spent last weekend at Shells by the Sea and we are going back less than a week later. Minutes from some of R.I's best beaches. The Dining is great and Newport is a short drive. If you are staying for a couple of days you could even jump on the ferry in Point Judith and head to Block Island...

What a lovely b&b. Our hosts were welcoming, warm and gracious. They make you feel right at home, the rooms are beautiful, very clean and relaxing. The pool is gorgeous, and we enjoyed having our wine around the fire pit. My husband and his friend especially enjoyed playing pool. Only minutes from beaches, fun shopping and some great restaurants. I've...

We felt very comfortable and at-home as international visitors. The atmosphere and hospitality was fantastic. Great location near the beach with some great seafood places (and surprisingly decent surfing for the northeast). Recommended to any and all !

My husband and I recently spent his b-day weekend in the Narragansett area, & staying here certainly enhanced the trip. I cannot say enough good things about this place: the beds were uber comfy, the breakfast specialty made to order to suit everyone's needs, & the entire place was literally immaculate! What set's this place apart from other B&B's is...

I didn't know what to expect, my wife made the arrangements. But what a terrific surprise! Not just a great B&B in a beautiful home but engaged, interesting - and fun - hosts! I can't recommend Shells By The Sea more highly. What you won't get, however, is a traditional inn. Shells is a large, beautiful, new home close to...
