This was the first time in years that we visited Shelter Island, From the moment we arrived there it was an excellent experience, We are well traveled and typically spend most weekends on East Hampton. The owners are kind, hospitable and so welcoming, Excellent service, Our room was well sized, comfortable and super clean, The atmosphere of clientele were friendly and warm. We had a TON of laughs, good drinks and excellent food at their restaurant. This will be our new spot. Can’t wait to return,

We stayed in early May 2021. The hotel was very comfortable--everywhere newly decorated and well looked after. Our room was lovely. The staff were friendly and very careful about Covid precautions. For Shelter Island, and the quality of the hotel, we thought the prices were good value. New York State will be opening up later this month, and we assume the hotel's bar and restaurant will be opening up too. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked up to return in July. We are hoping to try the restaurant then.

Just got back from a mid week getaway to shelter island. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were well taken care of. The staff went out of their way to make sure all our plans were set and made several great recommendations. Highly recommend the clean and Covid safe and comfy setting. Can’t wait for the spring to go back!

Friendly staff - and lovely bathroom (up to date and large) - but the room itself was tired. The bed was also 3.5ft off the ground and very difficult for my mother to climb into. When we asked for a step stool - we were given the folding one that the on-site handy man uses (paint stains and all) which wasn't the easiest to use. Additionally - the takeaway breakfast was completely inedible, not even cooked all the way through. For the price - I was expecting a higher quality accommodation.
