We had a wonderful stay at Grotto Bay. It is quiet and private with rooms that open onto a deck, then garden, then private beach. It is so relaxing it is hard to decide whether to sit in the Adirondack chairs on the deck, in the hammocks on the beach or in a lawn chair on the beach. The kayaks...

Grotto Bay has spoiled us for staying anyplace else. It is not a hotel; it's like a triplex where the owners live upstairs, and the two guest rooms are side by side below. Each room has its own entrance which faces away from the other unit, so you won't encounter the occupants from the other room when entering your own....

My husband and I spent ten days at Grotto Bay on honeymoon, and had the best possible time. We loved Jeannie and Kris, who went above and beyond to make our stay amazing, from lending us wetsuits, to taking us on a tour of the next-door caves, to ordering in a coconut from a friend's farm in the far north...

My husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon at Grotto Bay. The hosts Jean and Kris take care of their guests, explain and show the wonderful nature around their home and are just great friends to chat with and spend time. We could enjoy the private beach, our cozy "turtle room" and the open kitchen. Every day we discovered more...

In choosing this place to stay for 2 weeks we read many reviews. It is lovely here. I don't recall reviews about the bats. Just after dark (get inside before this nightly occurrence) loads of bats fly out of the cave on the property. They fly furiously through the porch. In the morning there is one or two still in...

We stayed at Grotto Bay for about 4 nights. We loved it very much. Jeannie really did a fantastic job to plant her beautiful garden. It's so beautiful and peaceful from all angles. The beach is also perfect with the palm trees, the chairs, etc. You can just relax by the beach with the garden surrounds you. I cannot get...

We stayed at Grotto Bay for about 5 days and had a wonderful, very relaxing time. We loved exploring the small uninhabited kays by canoe, paddle boarding and snorkeling right from our own private beach, admiring the millions of stars in the night sky, grilling lobster on the fire or just hanging in the hammocks under the palm trees.

We just spent a week at Grotto Bay at Kris & Jeanie's. What wonderful hosts! They are in a lovely spot on the lee side of Long Island, a perfect location for exploring the island as Salt Pond is roughly Midway down the Island (it's not called "long Island" for nothing,,,) The quarters were very comfortable and well done with...

“Two rooms, I believe identical, but the Turtle room has more privacy since it's furthest from the outdoor kitchen.”
