Top notch B & B!

5 on August 27, 2014

Couldn't ask for more from a B & B. First thing I noticed was the cleanliness of the home--without a chemical smell. Truly, the best B & B I've found.

Relaxing by the sea!!!

Every aspect of this Inn was outstanding. The property was a perfect location to the beach and bay. My family was able to surf, paddle board, and kayak. Thank you Jeff, Jodi and J.J. We will be back!

Hidden Gem in Hull, Mass

4.6 on May 27, 2014

We are so happy we found the B and B by the Sea in Hull, MA. The pristine room and private bath, the sea views from every porch and window, the comfortable king sized bed, the quiet neighborhood, the free wi-fi, and the friendly service all combined to make our 5 night stay a wonderful experience. We will definitely book this place next time we are in the area and will recommend it to our friends and family.

Not Even a Guest!

Jodi and Jeff could not have been more welcoming. My cousin stayed here and my son and I visited. You would have thought we were paying guests. The house is beautiful, and I personally would like to move in on a permanent basis if Jodi would let me. This is what a terrific B & B is supposed to be. Can't wait for my next visit, I am SOOO there. Thanks, Jodi and Jeff.

Family Vacation and College Visit

5 on August 26, 2013

We spent a week at the B&B By the Sea, combining a family vacation with our son participating in a college seminar in Boston. He son was able to easily commute via the ferry each morning, and we were able to relax by the water, watching the sailboats bob from either our private deck, the Inn's private beach, or the fire pit. Jodi's attention to detail cannot be overstated -- the Inn is spotless and homey, she anticipated our every need and was wonderful at introducing fellow guests, as well as making sure we had as much privacy as we wished. We were able to get lobster straight from the morning's catch, fresh muffins scented the halls each morning, and artfully displayed fruits and treats were scattered throughout the Inn -- really, it's amazing I was able to drag my family away -- we were well and truly spoiled, and have already made plans for the holidays (Fall and Winter in New England, snug in a wonderful Inn - who could want for more??). Oh, and anyone who may be looking for a picturesque spot for a wedding should look no further -- I wish we had known about B&B By the Sea when we married, and am seriously considering a vow renewal in the very near future. In fact, two couples booked their future weddings in the week we were there -- book early -- it's a gem!

Jodi, Jeff & JJ Rock!

Special place and special people. Bonfire right on the water, beautiful sunsets .... my evening scotch never tasted so good! Everything perfect, rooms and the whole home comfy and well appointed . . Jodi, Jeff and JJ were perfect hosts! When visiting family in Weymouth I'll be staying in Hull going forward at the B&B by the Sea!

Jodi & JJ (the tiny dog) could not do enough to accommodate my stay. #! Cleanliness; is always high on my list A+. Congenialiaty: Anything Jodi can do 4 u including pickup from the Bos/Hull Ferry. I was visiting family but already looking for next opportunity to go to B&B By the Sea. BTW did I mention the wonderful beach: sandy, clean, gentle waves coming in with the tide. Convenient transportation from Hingham/Hull was a plus as well.


5 on August 07, 2013

perfect, perfect, perfect.....what a wonderful experience. My stay was so enjoyable. The room was comfortable and impeccably clean. Jodi, the owner, was receptive to my every need....I will highly recommend this establishment and will look forward to staying at B&B By the Sea again

Seaside Idyll for year round R&R

5 on July 31, 2013

Go to sleep with the stars, wake up with the sun on the ocean, in a large bed with comfy covers, pristine seaside colors. Breakfast on freshly baked quiche muffins, banana bread, bagels etc. on the covered enclosed porch fronting the ocean bay, walk the beach, go swimming, read and sunbathe on your own private porch, refresh yourself from your own little kitchenette with fridge, coffeemaker, and microwave, take a steam in your bathroom - what else could you want from a seaside vacation? Great in all weathers... Summer, Fall, and even Winter! Loved it

Small town coziness with easy big city access...

5 on July 25, 2013

I travel to Boston for two weeks each month for work. B&B By the Sea is less than a half hour to Boston's business district by ferry, and miles away from the sometimes touristy hustle and bustle of the City. Rooms are spacious and lovely, Jodi and her faithful sidekick JJ (the cutest hypoallergenic pup ever!) make it seem like you are visiting an old friend. I love it so much, in fact, that I have extended reservations for the weeks I will be in Boston for the rest of the year! Insider tip: while all the rooms are light and airy, the Compass Rose room, with a gloriously large deck with views of the bay and THE BEST view of each day's sunset, make sure I never work late -- wouldn't miss the sunset for anything! And the steam shower? And kingsize, snuggly beds? Seriously, check this place out -- best kept secret on the South Shore!
