My wife and I stayed for one night last week and had a great time. The B&B is about a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal in Old Harbor and a great central location to explore the island by foot. We arrived to find nice landscaping and a nice, clean room. They offer some rooms with a shared bathroom... More

The Sheffield house is a short walk from the ferry. Located on the quieter side of the main part of town but close to restaurants and attractions. Near to the empire theater and Abrams animal farm we didn't need our bikes much for getting around. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom had modern fixtures and was...

My husband I stayed at the Sheffield House by happy accident because another favorite B&B that we love was all filled up. The Sheffield House is a lovely, convenient place to stay on Block Island. There are only 6 rooms, all very small, but hey your on the island to go around and do things. You'll probably only be at... More

B&B is walking distance to town. Home is nice & quiet with an outside porch furnished with comfortable chairs. Bedrooms are nice sized and comfortable. The best feature of this B&B though is the owners. Ed & Diane and wonderful, friendly people. We came as guests and left as friends.

We stay at the Sheffield house for 6 nights in the rose mallow room #5. We really enjoyed our stayed - Diane was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and made us feel right at home. The room was spacious and had a nice breeze. Wished we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend this b&b and will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend on our first trip to Block Island and could not be happier. The owners are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are all updated and very comfortable.

“We slept in room #6 at first and moved to room #5 for our last night - for no other reason than booking crossovers. Both rooms were great but I did like #5 as it was a bit bigger. You can't really go wrong - even the ones that share a bathroom had a really beautiful modern bathroom!”
