We were made very welcome by all the staff, who went out of their way to be helpful. The unit we stayed in was very comfortable and had all mod cons. Wi-Fi was good. The gym and pool an excellent bonus, as well as the free use of bikes to get around the island. We came away very relaxed.

We go here every year. It is one of the most beautiful views of the island. Barbara and Sheri feel like family now as this inn is our home away from home. The new pool is wonderful . It is heated and the patios are beautiful. We have been going here for seven years now. Every year there are improvements....

Spent 3 days recently after the season ended. You get a free night if your stay starts on Sunday or Monday. Because of the off season we had the place for ourselves. Our one bedroom apartment had a newly renovated bathroom, very nice. The living/dining/kitchen room was a bit small, but adequate for our needs. The bedroom was spacious. I...

Shelter Island is surrounded by water; why would you stay anywhere that does not offer a water view? Dering Harbor Inn offer the most spectacular view of the exquisitely beautiful Harbor. I grew up vacationing here, and it has retained the same charm and integrity after all the years. The suites are spotlessly clean and comfortable. My one and only...

I will be docking my boat at Dering Harbor Inn, the place looks very nice, the grounds are beautiful and the waterfront pristine. Location is easy to get to, both driving and water. Pool looks quite inviting, lots of tennis courts.

This ended up being a great vacation. We have passed by Shelter Island while in Greenport but never ventured over with the ferry. Let me say, I probably will never go to another resort on the North Fork of Long Island again. The Dering Inn was a cute little resort, definitely outdated, but it is still very clean and well...

The Dering Harbor Inn is very quiet and peaceful. There's a strong impression from the owners of the individual condos that you are not wanted there as a guest. The rooms and amenities are clean and lovely but very dated. The view is incredible. The on site amenities are so/so, and the pool closes earlier for the season than any...

I absolutely loved our experience in Shelter Island. It is a stunning place and so much fun. I adored biking everything and not having to worry about a car. I also went on a few beautiful runs. I love the gorgeous houses and scenery. However, I would not say that I loved this hotel. The location is just so so....

Really, really loved this place. Our unit (#9) was spectacular and so were Sherrie and Barbara. We were on a surprise mission with another couple and those ladies helped us immensely...right down to the smallest detail. We were there in the off season and everything was beautiful and so peaceful. I am from Long Island (originally) and thought I had...

This was the second trip in four years that my family stayed at the Dering Harbor Inn (Suite 17). The suite is beautifully decorated, well-maintained and perfect for a young family of four. Mornings and evenings were spent peering at the beautiful harbor from Suite 17's deck and days were spent running around the island to find beaches to relax....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on Shelter Island, overlooking the picturesque harbor from which it takes its name the Dering Harbor Inn is the ideal place to come and settle in. Private and discreet, it's array of waterfront villas and suites, scenically situated pristine pool, tennis, dock and over seven acres of walkabout space give our guests room to relax, reflect and rejuvenate. The accommodations are deluxe and individually unique, and the ambiance tranquil and unhurried – a pace that has been the hallmark of Shelter Island to this day and is why it is so rightfully referred to as the "un-Hamptons". In a superb location...within a five minute walking distance to main village where you'll find restaurants/bars, markets, shops, bike rentals. Only two hours from New York, accessible by a short ferry ride, the Dering Harbor Inn patiently awaits you. ... more   less
