Looking for some guidance about choosing the best place to stay on Shelter Island. We're a family of four (kids are 8 and 12) who love the outdoors, swimming, bike riding, kayaking, hiking and just hanging out in beautiful places. We'll be spending a few weeks visiting family and friends in the Tri-state area (nice, but not relaxing) but have reserved 4 days just for us to enjoy Shelter Island. Choosing between Ram's Head Inn and Pridwin which I guess are on opposite sides of the island and have some different amenities. Also, considering a small cottage which seems to be located about a mile from the beach at Midway road.
All seem lovely but I wonder if anyone is familiar with these Inns or the geography of the island so as to recommend where to stay for a relaxing (yet active) vacation for our family?
Thank you in advance for any tips. I will post this on the NYC forum as well since it appears that Shelter Island forum not so active (accommodations posts are old).
