My husband and I had purchased/won a 2 night stay at a resort ( in a charity fund raiser silent auction )in the southern area of Long Island. We decided to lengthen our stay & try out another location in the north as well. After searching several sites & reading lots of reviews, we choose Grotto Bay in Salt Pond,... More

My husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon at Grotto Bay. The hosts Jean and Kris take care of their guests, explain and show the wonderful nature around their home and are just great friends to chat with and spend time. We could enjoy the private beach, our cozy "turtle room" and the open kitchen. Every day we discovered more... More

In choosing this place to stay for 2 weeks we read many reviews. It is lovely here. I don't recall reviews about the bats. Just after dark (get inside before this nightly occurrence) loads of bats fly out of the cave on the property. They fly furiously through the porch. In the morning there is one or two still in...

We stayed at Grotto Bay for about 4 nights. We loved it very much. Jeannie really did a fantastic job to plant her beautiful garden. It's so beautiful and peaceful from all angles. The beach is also perfect with the palm trees, the chairs, etc. You can just relax by the beach with the garden surrounds you. I cannot get... More

We had a spectacular time here. We were 2 couples taking up the 2 apartments and we couldn't have been happier. You have a private beach! And free use of kayaks, paddle boards and snorkeling equipment. Our hosts Jeannie and Kris couldn't have been nicer and every recommendation they made was perfect - places to eat, places to visit, including... More

We stayed at Grotto Bay for about 5 days and had a wonderful, very relaxing time. We loved exploring the small uninhabited kays by canoe, paddle boarding and snorkeling right from our own private beach, admiring the millions of stars in the night sky, grilling lobster on the fire or just hanging in the hammocks under the palm trees. Long... More

We just spent a week at Grotto Bay at Kris & Jeanie's. What wonderful hosts! They are in a lovely spot on the lee side of Long Island, a perfect location for exploring the island as Salt Pond is roughly Midway down the Island (it's not called "long Island" for nothing,,,) The quarters were very comfortable and well done with...

Jeannie and Chris where great hosts. They are available when you need them but give you plenty of privacy. The shared kitchen has everything you will need to whip up a meal, Chris has some fish and lobster you can purchase from him. The new fire pit looks great, we will have to come back and check it out.

We could not have asked for a better experience at Grotto Bay! Jean and Kris were amazing hosts and people. The property itself is beyond beautiful and is equipped with everything you need and more! Having access to paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and your own private beach was truly unbeatable. If you are looking for an authentic bohemian experience... More

Jean & Kris, thank you for another serene vacation. What could be better than dry (for Bahamas) 80is. You are on the deck; the water splashes 10 yards away; 6 pack is by; a spy novel in your hands; I supplement Billie Holiday quite tune on my iTune. Don’t miss the green ray from the sunset on the top deck.... More
