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

We stayed at the Ram's Head for a mini-moon after our wedding. It is one of the few hotel options on Shelter Island and the rates seem much more affordable and a better value for money than the nearby Hamptons area properties. We chose the hotel because we wanted a quite escape and also wanted something on the water. We... More

This was our second visit to the Ram's Head, our first time staying over. The most obvious thing to say about the Ram's Head Inn is that the setting, from the building to the grounds and vista, is spectacular. We were blessed with perfect summer weather. Even poor weather does not take away the comfortable covered veranda, warm inviting lounge... More

We stayed at RHI after an event. Make no mistake this is an expensive proposition. The a/c was barely keeping the room cool and there is no way to control the a/c yourself. Drawers that barely close on the dresser and tiny bathroom space were small inconveniences. The location is incredible. Serene rolling lawn and water views from your adirondack... More

We stayed at this property for a wedding. The property is beautiful, as is Shelter Island, with lots of flowers, rolling hills, and a view of the bay. The Inn has it's own little beach area as well as a tennis court, boats, etc so there's something for everyone. The room we stayed in shared a bathroom with another room.... More

This Inn is gorgeous - situated on a hill with a rolling lawn that leads down to private tennis courts and a private beach. The Inn is well maintained but beware the somewhat surly staff. A sure sign of absentee management. Continental breakfast is included but does not meet the standards of the hotel - small cardboard cereal boxes, jams... More

My husband were lucky enough to be at The Rams Head just a few weekends ago. It was such a lovely Inn. Our bedroom was clean and had a beautiful view of the rolling lawn and the bay. We had received an email the restaurant would be closing for the season but when we arrived... it was open. We made... More

A wonderful old Inn with excellent destination restaurant - in the summer. Romantic rolling lawn down to the bay on a lovely island near the Hamptons. Very old fashioned - lots to do, but no TV. Hammocks, a swing, and the beach... And it is for sale, I believe, - here is hoping someone equally as talented buys and maintains... More

This is not your kid's vacation. In fact, the rooms don't even have TV's. There's one in the TV/den room. There are only 17 rooms and some have to share a bathroom. Mine didn't. If you are looking to get away from the stresses of life then you found the right place. This is quiet elegance of days gone by.... More
