My husband & I stayed at The Shelter Island House for the weekend. The hotel is pretty, homey yet it still has an upscale feel. Paula at the front desk was a doll, she was very friendly and make us feel at home. The only reason why they did not get 5 stars is that there was no restaurant or... More

I took one look at the appealing online photos of Shelter Island House and knew instantly that this was the style I craved for our last-gasp-of-summer getaway. But I am happy to report that this posh haven still managed to exceed our expectations. The handsomely furnished rooms are fresh, pristine, and spacious. The beach was barely a five-minute walk and... More

My boyfriend and I spent a long weekend at Shelter Island House and absolutely loved our stay. We both noticed the staff's great attention to detail from the moment we got there. Everyone was so welcoming and accommodating from the get-go. It is a smaller hotel with a bed-and-breakfast vibe, but with lots of amenities you would want from a... More

This hotel truly made my visit to Shelter Island perfect. The rooms were beautiful, and the house truly felt like a home. The pool was gorgeous and perfect for relaxing. The food was absolutely delicious, be it for brunch or dinner. I strongly recommend the octopus, as well as the tempura avocado. The poolside bar and indoor bar each created... More

Everyone we interacted with at the Shelter Island House - from front desk staff, to cleaning staff, - were friendly, professional, and made our experience great!

First the positives: The owner and staff are all very nice people. In fact, when one of the streets leading to the hotel was blocked, someone actually drove to find us a lead us to the hotel. The negatives: #1. We spent about a half an hour trying to call the hotel to tell them of the blocked street. Each... More

I got a great vibe from this place the moment we arrived and it never disappointed. The food, bar, accommodations, staff--even the proprietor--all a pleasant surprise. Intimate, relaxing, yet never boring or pretentious. Dog-friendly a plus, as you will see from our pictures. Go already!

I feel that I overpaid by quite a bit for the worst room in the house on the first floor, #10 - with noise from guests stomping overhead, and a loud A/C window unit in the window running all night - in an attempt to drown out the noise. The room is closest to the lobby and restaurant, though they... More

We were thrilled with our recent visit to this new restaurant. After ordering our drinks a man came over and introduced himself as the restaurant manager and said to tell him if we needed anything which was a great touch. We were a party of nine and the service was still excellent with the food coming promptly. Everyone was pleased... More
