The positives of this hotel is the gorgeous location. When you eat your delicious hot breakfast or amazing dinner at the hotel restaurant, you overlook the beach. It is SO beautiful and relaxing sitting there for your meals or sipping on wine in the evening. The property has a little game room, a bar for evening cocktails, a great maintained pool, and tennis courts. (The tennis courts are pricey but you are a tennis player, its a must) You really don't have to leave the hotel because everything is on property. However Shelter Island is great to explore so it's good to be out & about.
The negatives are the room. We were in the main building on the 3rd floor. Unfornately, the room was by the staircase so we could hear everyone going up and down late at night. I am a light sleeper so it was quite frustrating since there was a loud group of people on our floor the first night. Also, taking a shower is annoying as well. The water constantly turned from hot to cold. I'm assuming it's because other guests were flushing the toilet. I was happy we were there only for a weekend. That would have drove me batty if I had to deal with that for a week.
All & all, it was average because the room experience was a negative. The walls are paper thin so try to get a room at the end of the hall if possible or possibly one of the suites that are further away from the main building.
May go back again & try the cottages just to give this place a second chance. Being so close to the beach was great!
