The Silver Sands is truly a step back to the 50's. It is also spotlessly clean, has good beds and a fabulous location! That and sipping wine at sunset or coffee on the beach at breakfast is all we needed for complete satisfaction. It was also the ideal place to be for easy access to the Vineyards of L.I. and...

We just returned from a four day stay at Silver Sands. We trailered our little boat so that we can go fishing in the Peconic Bay. Silver Sands was a wonderful nostalgic expereince for us and our friends. Although the decor was quite vintage, the accomodations were extremely adequate for our needs. The room was very clean and neat. There... More

We're a family of five, with 3 small (4 and under) kids, and we just came back from a 4 day stay. We were looking for a place where the kids can play in the pool, on the beach and fly kites by day, and chase fireflies at night and this is it. It was like the old bungalow colonies... More

We stayed in cottage no 34. as I am a disabled wheelchair user. We can't praise staff and accommodation highly enough. We were there for 10 nights and it was home from home. Very clean and spacious. Maid service every day to clean and leave breakfast for following day. We will most definitely book this place again, and we are... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. We came at just the right time- early spring, just before the season gets going. We were lucky enough to have a beach front cabin with excellent views of the bay and Shelter Island. The cabin itself was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was just like having a vacation house on... More

I've stayed at Silver Sands many times, both in the motel and in one of their cottages. I'm originally from Eastern Long Island, but I have no living relatives there now, so I can't crash at anyone's house when I go back to visit. If I could, it couldn't be any nicer than the Silver Sands Motel! Jean, the proprietor,... More

Stayed here over a weekend in early May. Cannot remember ever being this happy / content with a hotel. This hotel is straight out of 50s/60s Americana and is pretty much unchanged from how you would have found it at that time. If you’re looking for luxury and up to the minute fashion then you really ought to steer clear.... More

My husband and I spent a recent week-end in a cottage at the Silver Sands. It reminded us of motels from the 50's with Mom and Dad. We were right on the water and had a beautiful view of the beach and bay with Shelter Island off in the distance. Time has stood still here. The decor is dated, but... More

My husband, our two teens and I had to travel to Shelter Island in early January. The cost of hotels on the island were very high, and I just happened to find The Silver Sands online. We booked a cottage and were thrilled when we arrived to find a roomy, clean cottage with 3 bedrooms. The decor was very 70's,... More
