We were married at PSI about 2 and a half years ago. This was our second trip back since the wedding and we are never disappointed!! The rooms are all wonderful, the calm,quiet atmosphere is so relaxing. And the little extras (the hospitality room, the wine and cheese hour, etc.) just add the the wonderful experience.

This was our second time at The Peter Shields Inn and cannot say enough good things about it! Absolutely LOVE it here!!! The rooms, the food, wine and cheese gatherings in the afternoon, the bikes, beach chairs....everything you need to feel pampered and welcome! From the moment we booked our reservation, check in and our entire experience was truly magnificent!... More

There is not even much constructive criticism I could send to PSI. The staff was more than helpful and accommodating. I forgot my toothbrush and they had one for me in a cute little travel bag with a toothpaste as well. Breakfast had several choices, all very tasty. The hospitality room had coffee, tea, soft drinks, cookies, snack bags, and... More

Excellent place with well appointed rooms. We stayed in one with a balcony & a fireplace. Delicious food in the restaurant. Full complimentary breakfast with many options to choose. Good location which is very walkable to many sites. We will return next year!

Had an AMAZING Experience at their restaurant. Fantastic service, delicious food, and romantic atmosphere. We were seated next to a fireplace and enjoyed the specials that night. Will definitely visit there again. MAKE A RESERVATION P.s. We’re excited to eat in the patio come summer!
