This is a little ice cream shop located in Alton Bay. You can arrive by boat and it is within walking distance from the public boat docks. Great location, great servers and great ice cream!

Several ice cream stands in Alton Bay all competing. Stillwells offers a variety of flavors and very generous portions. Located right on the bay, get your ice cream and sit on the benches along the water and enjoy the view.

Not only are the ice cream, gelatto, and frozen yogurt flavors superb, but you can get any portion you want. In addition to a "small," for example, opt for a "mini" or even a "baby" scoop. THIS lets you get little scoops of several flavors!!!!

We have been enjoying Stillwells for two summers. The ice cream is amazing as are the portions. It is a great place to bring the family on a warm night in Alton Bay! The prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend it.
