The Shelter Island Hotel was a wonderful mini-vacation, even in February. The rooms were very comfortable. The food was delicious. The staff we encountered were professional, friendly and helpful. We definitely look forward to visiting again.

The holiday weekend we spent at The Shelter island House was lovely. We felt that we were part of a small, caring family during our stay. The King suite room (#9) was very well appointed, and had a pleasant view of the back porch and yard. The empty, generously sized refrigerator allowed us to stock it with local products and... More

We stayed here years ago when it was called something else...old country Inn or something...they have modernized it quite a bit while still retaining that charming B&B feel. But for the price I would expect more in the way of amenities. Granted, we were off season so didn't take advantage of the nearby beach or the lovely outdoor spaces. We... More

Location: Easy accessible through North and South ferry, which runs till midnight; as Shelter Island is not big, everything is in reach through driving the bike (which can be rent at the B&B) Check in and welcome: We arrived a tiny bit too early (about half an hour) and the receptionist told us to wait for half an hour, then...

We had a nice stay here but our visit was spoiled a bit by a front desk manned by someone with an odd, indifferent, almost passive aggressive attitude. It's a shame, because this place has a lot of potential. The bar looks like a fun place, and there are nice outdoor seating areas.

We spent 4 nights this past August with our spaniel Dixie in room 11 while visiting friends on the island. It has a lovely bar and restaurant and an enclosed pool.The surrounding neighborhood is great for walks and a short distance from Crescent Beach.

Quaint Hotel. We stayed in room 2. Large comfortable beds. No phones in room so no room service!! Steep staircase to carry your bags up to. No one in a rush to do anything. The complimentary continental breakfast was very nice. Another guest mentioned it was an idea to get down early or they ran out, so we did. Enjoyed... More

My husband & I stayed at The Shelter Island House for the weekend. The hotel is pretty, homey yet it still has an upscale feel.

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
