My husband and I spent this past weekend at the Shelter Island House. It really exceeded our expectations. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The new owners have a lot of knowledge of Shelter Island to share. The grounds were beautiful. We also enjoyed our dinner at their restaurant. We will definitely be back again!

Warm and welcoming owners; delicious food and drinks; comfortable and cozy rooms. We LOVED our weekend here-- we felt like we were worlds away from our busy lives in Manhattan. From the moment we set foot at Shelter Island House we felt our stress melt away. Suzanne welcomed us with open arms and made us feel right at home. The... More

Great idea, flawless execution. Went for a simple meal, no fuss. Started with a salad special featuring crisp, tasty grilled vegetables and a creamy burrata. The balsamic dressing was extremely good. Then, charred octopus that was tender and sweet. Lovely.

This was our first visit to Shelter Island House and it certainly will not be our last! The hotel is stunning and there’s a feeling of warmth giving you that “at home” feeling as soon as you step through the door. We were greeted by the new owner, Suzanne, who is so welcoming. She took great care of us and... More

This hotel made for an unforgettable weekend with friends. Everything was perfect- the rooms were gorgeous, the bathrooms were straight out of a spa, and the pool and decks were the best place to spend our time. We ate at the restaurant multiple times and always loved our food and drinks. The bar was the perfect spot to hang out... More

As they did with their place SALT, Keith and Ally took over this place and have made it the "destination spot" for the islanders and visitors this winter. The menu is simple yet well thought out. The food superb. I've eaten there at least 4 times and each time it has been a more than pleasurable experience The staff is... More

Hotel is in a very nice setting with plenty of parking right outside. Not easy to find so make sure you take your GPS with you. Very nice room with great sitting area on second floor in one of the multi-sided corners. Bad news is that this whole island closes down for the winter around October time. That means that... More

We had high hopes but they were dashed immediately upon check in when we were shown down the administrative offices hallway to our room. Hotel manager's office across the hall and bocci ball courts right outside our window, not exactly the romantic environment we had been told to expect. Bathroom badly needs updating and some water pressure would really help.... More
