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. We never made it to Sunset Beach!! We sat at the bar and had a drink and some appetizers that were amazing. I am a very picky eater... More

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!

This place is such a find! I can be rather particular when it comes to hotels so I am very excited about this one. I love the style- kind of a chic nantucket vibe. We had dinner on the front porch which was perfect and I loved their cocktail list. I had a cucumber cocktail that was amazing. We took... More

My husband and I stayed here Memorial Day weekend for our 10th Anniversary. We stayed here last year when it was La Maison Blanche and enjoyed it, but I have to say it was even ten times better this time around. Shelter Island House is under new ownership and the place looks fabulous. The room we stayed in was clean,... More

We had a company retreat here in May with 8 people which was a huge success. The new owner, Suzanne, was helpful, and had a TV set up for us to do some presentations, along with organizing lunch, snacks and cocktails. Wifi is available throughout the hotel. The dinner was delicious, and the new head chef has done a great... More

What a special place! Shelter Island is one of the most beautiful places here on earth, and the Shelter Island House is a little slice of heaven.
