What a wonderful experience. The pictures on line of this B&B are soooo true to form. Loved sitting on the wrap around veranda overlooking the sound. Sue and Ken are wonderful hostesses and full of information for you. The breakfast's they prepared were marvelous (it was hard going home to Cherrios!)! The location is wonderful and the views spectacular as... More

This is the perfect place for relaxing. It is right on the ocean so one can see many types of ocean birds fishing while the fish are jumping. Ken and Sue, the Innkeepers, are so hospitable and informative that they round out the trip. Also, the house is full of interesting reading material and maps of the area. The whole... More

I don't even know where to begin, we LOVED the Kelsey House! We rented out the Kelsey House for our wedding weekend. From the moment we arrived on Thursday we were so happy with our choice!

Sue and Ken Kelsey are phenomenal hosts. It was our 14th anniversary and they made our stay so special. The location is quiet and tranquil with spectacular views of the water right off the front porch. Nearby (about 100 ft up the road) there is a small beach for swimming and the breakfast was phenomenal. I wish we had more... More

Stayed there for a weekend as we were visiting with a friend & her parents, who live very close by. The food was wonderful, and the owners (Ken & Sue) were prefect hosts. The property overlooks the water, and has a big porch, complete with rocking chairs and other places to sit. We will definitely go back!

Went to a wedding this weekend in NewHaven, Connecticut and stayed in this spectacular B&B right on the water. Our room looked out over the Long Island Sound and some small islands, very beautiful. The accomadations were very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

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

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
