Ram's Head Inn is a very mixed bag. Good — Very attractive building appearance and grounds. Public rooms are very appealing and it is easy to see why this is a frequent wedding venue. Not so much — 1. Small rooms and baths (see photos). Economics of running a seasonal inn like this must be very difficult. Plugs for sink... More

The weekend was magnificent. The hotel was spacious, clean and the food wonderful. We enjoyed afternoons in the sunshine on the inviting lawn chairs scattered over the relaxing green lawn. We took long walks delighting in the beautiful homes and grounds , as well as, the stunning waterscapes. All in all, it was the perfect place to spend our anniversary... More

Visited late September, two bedroom suite was comfortable and very large although located right above the main entrance so a bit noisy, especially since there was a large wedding event that went on until the late hours. Hotel manager always seemed a bit annoyed when answering questions, hospitals attitude was thin on the ground. Restaurant food amazing, free buffet self-serve... More

A gorgeous, secluded hotel on a hill overlooking the harbor. Beautiful decor throughout, very nice amenities. We stayed here for two nights in August - our first time on Shelter Island, and would definitely return. You really feel like you've traveled back in time when you arrive. We stayed in one of the rooms with a shared bath, which was... More

The Ram's Head was a great choice for enjoying a relaxing stay on Shelter Island. The Inn was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The grounds are lovely and the bay access and complimentary kayak and SUP use was a fantastic perk. Touring the bay by kayak was simply beautiful. The Ram's Island area of Shelter Island is quiet, peaceful and... More

The Ram's Head Inn is tucked away on a beautiful part of Shelter Island. Excellent place to stay if you are looking for rest and relaxation. We had a double room suite with a bathroom that we shared as a family; this worked well because both rooms are separated by a short hallway with the bathroom at the center. This... More

In June, 2014, we hosted our daughter's wedding at the Ram's Head Inn. The setting was spectacular, and the Island is such a wonderful place to bring friends and loved ones. Linda Eklund, the owner, made the planning so easy ~ she has so much experience and her suggestions were wonderful. She did everything for us, from bringing in pies... More

The property, the room (we had one with a private bathroom), the service and the restaurant for dinner were wonderful. But the breakfast was shameful. Given the prices of the rooms and the fact that they have a full restaurant kitchen, they could have provided a much better breakfast. The tea was basic supermarket brand, the water for the tea...

Thank you so much for your thoughts. We are proud of the service we offer and are happy to know that our guests enjoy the accommodations and their dining experience while at the Inn. I am unhappy though, to read that the complimentary continental breakfast fell short of your expectations. The breakfast selection offered is designed to accommodate the wide... More

Ram's Head Inn held a special weekend at Valentine's Day and we took advantage. It was as special as advertised with a thick blanket of snow surrounding it. We had only visited in the Summer in the past - so this was unique. Food, service and accomodations were great. The batrooms have some issues. If you are big person (we... More
