My husband and i stumbled upon this motel while touring the wine country on the North Fork in March of 1996 as they were the only place opened. From there, our entire family; grandmother, parents, sister/brothers, nephews and in-laws, have been going there every year since. It has become our summer getaway for the past 15 years and we wouldn't...

We spent the weekend here and it was just what we were looking for. Someplace simple and relaxing that we could have access to the nearby village by bicycle and wineries by car. We also enjoyed just relaxing on the small bay beachfront or in the pool that was part of this charming motel. Nothing fancy, but clean and affordable,...

This place is well situated near the village of Greenport, not far from wine country or the aquarium at Riverhead. You can take a ferry to the Hamptons, Shelter Island and Montauk. Staying here is like going back to the fifties in a time warp. The rooms are from the fifties, clean but old. The management is friendly and nice...

We have been going to Silver Sands for many years; three generations of my family have enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of three generations of the Silver Sands family. The motel and cottages, though simple , are always spotlessly clean. The linens are a fine quality and not what you'd expect to find in a beach cottage. The pool is...

Well, I read the reviews on this site and thought this place will be a good choice for a relaxing weekend in Greenport. Boy, how was I wrong! I called the place well in advance, in March, to make a reservation for June, received a reservation confirmation letter and thought I was all set.... BUT on the day when me...

Hello! My family & I stayed at The Silver Sands Motel in July 2010! We were recommended this motel by friends of ours. I must say that the women running the motel named Jean is the sweetest lady you'll meet. She does a great job of making sure you feel comfortable during your stay and goes out of her way...

We keep coming back to Silver Sands! Like many of the other reviewers, I have returned to this property for many years. Every October since 2001, an old college friend and I stay for a “girls’ week” in a wonderful 2-bedroom cottage at Silver Sands that now seems like home. My family has also had many long-weekend family reunions here....

Silver Sands is just perfect for us. Six years ago we went there by train and Terry (the owner) picked us up in his car and we stayed 5 days. We had toddlers then. Now we have 2nd and 3rd Graders who love the place. The cottages are great, clean and tidy. Outside every one has a BBQ, chairs, tables...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"DIRTY DANCING meets THE FLAMINGO KID" - NEW YORK MAGAZINE, April 2007The Silver Sands Motel and Beach Cottages was established in 1961 on 40 unspoiled acres on Peconic Bay in Greenport, facing Shelter Island. We are a quiet getaway for beach and nature lovers, and their families, and have been for generations. Our rooms and cottages all have microwaves, mini-fridges, television, AC, and some have efficiency units as well as full kitchens. We are set off the beaten-path in Greenport, down a wooded road on the beach and are adjacent to 18 acres of pristine wetlands. Over the last half-century, we have been host to families, couples, studio film shoots, major fashion shoots, and have been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, TIME-OUT, TRAVEL & LEISURE, and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL MAGAZINE. ... more   less
