I took advantage of the mid-week special and was happy I did, hotel was not crowded and felt like I had the place to myself. This trip was meant for me to decompress from a hectic work schedule and this place provided just that. Staff was friendly and attentive, rooms looked exactly like the photos. This is a, great hotel... More

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

I visited the hotel in June for a girls weekend away from the city. From the moment we arrived, we couldn't have been taken better care of - nothing was too much trouble, from sorting out difficult cab drivers, to shuttling us down the road to dinner to avoid the pouring rain (sadly the weather wasn't as beautiful as the...

Really enjoyed relaxing at this comfy inn. The owners were always present and helpful. Restaurant/bar was great too! We were only there for a 1 night stay, but it was worth it. It's only a short walk to crescent beach and the restaurant sunset beach.

We, a party of 8, were delayed for our reservation in the dining room. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Lots of menu options in both variety and price. Portion are plentiful. Cocktails and beers were enjoyed by all

We visited Shelter Island to attend a family wedding. Our room at Shelter Island House was spacious and immaculate. Room 5 is a corner room so we had many windows, even a stained glass window. The queen size bed was most comfortable and the linens/towels were of high quality. Everyone at the front desk was most friendly. We were happy... More

I was visiting Shelter Island with friends last weekend and we decided to stop by the Shelter Island House for a cocktail on the way to Sunset Beach to see the sunset.

Finally got away with my husband and this was the absolute perfect place! So lovely, great service and delicious food. Special cocktails amd wine were a plus. Close to the beach and unbelievably relaxing. A quick trip from Nassau County but felt like a whole other world. Will be back soon for 10 year anniversary!
