Unlike a traditional B&B, the influence of contemporary art is infused throughout the sleek, uncluttered design. Arrive early to enjoy our new swimming pool, Seven is walking distance (five minutes) to Crescent Beach (we have a beach closet on the first level with beach chairs, and towels); hybrid bikes are available for our guests use. Walk to the trendy Sunset Beach restaurant (where yachts are anchored or enjoy the more casual Flying Goat pub & nrestaurant overlooking the nine hole public golf course; and enjoy a free concert at the famous Perlman Music Program. We recommend you make dinner reservations right away. Isola is another very casual option, one mile from Seven. Smart casual, Hamptons chic options with very good food are 18 Bay (a James Beard nominated restaurant which features a chef’s tasting menu) and our favorite The Vine Street Café is excellent and highly recommended. Reservations are always suggested and necessary. Our European inspired breakfast buffet is offered each morning at Seven, in the kitchen, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. (If you prefer a personal picnic basket or a breakfast tray - do let us know in advance.) Award winning, consistently #1 rated and recognized as one of the TOP bed and breakfast in the USA and TOP 1% of hotels in the world by Trip Advisor in 2017. New York Times suggested, featured in Forbes Magazine and Modern Luxury Hamptons Magazines. Seven offers en-suite private contemporary design-inspired bathrooms featuring 100% cotton linens and sustainable toiletry amenities from The Cold Spring Apothecary and French milled soaps by Pre de Provence. Unlike a traditional B&B, the influence of contemporary art is infused throughout the sleek, uncluttered design: guests enjoy breakfast at Northern Dutch designer Marcel Wanders' Two Tops Table, and Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa's organic sculptural abaca Grande Papilio Swivel Armchair and Ottoman welcome guests into the library and gallery. The personal picnic breakfast baskets includes fresh juices, pain au chocolat, croissants, baguettes with sweet butter and jam, and a gourmet cheese. High design and contemporary art update 1902 farmhouse. Our most important consideration is the health and well-being of our community, and as the COVID-19 situation evolves, we continue to update our policies and procedures with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Self check in is in place, contact-less payments are available, staff and guests are wearing masks indoors and maintaining six feet social distancing.

We stayed at Seven for 5 days in Aug 2022 and had the best time. Beautiful rooms, lovely pool, steps away from the beach. Beth and the staff are great. Breakfast was delicious. Really felt at home here.

Property's Favorite Review
Have you ever gone to a place that within the first 15 minutes you knew you made a good decision? That’s the way my wife and I felt when we arrived at the end of July 2020. We wound up staying 10 days changing rooms 5 times as needed because of other bookings. So we basically can review every room at the Inn. Each charming , each perfect for our needs especially during the summer of covid. Beth the owner and on site manager was charming and truly couldn’t do enough to make our stay the best that could be expected and over delivering. Her on site staff were also accommodating and genuinely cared for each guest to to their needs and requests. Dominika and Christina were both awesome and handled our day to day needs. Breakfast was especially special. Individual picnic baskets with a perfect assortment to make anyone happy. This review is way overdue in writing as it is now January 2nd 2021 but I felt it was time to give Seven the credit and just compliments they deserved. If any of you reading this are considering going there this coming summer don’t go the week we want to book. We are afraid this gem on Shelter Island will become so popular we will never be able to get a room again. Oh did I mention it’s a 5 minute walk to the beach. It doesn’t get much better. Go and find out for yourselves. Bob and Lucille

What a gorgeous gem! The b&b is infused with thoughtful, chic details: from the breakfast buffet, with delicious and healthy options, to the Slim Aarons style pool and cabana. Make up remover in the rooms and sunscreen in the common room! Luscious white bedding, elegant chaise lounges, plenty of clean towels, sun filled spaces. I tend to shy away from guest houses and the like for fear of having to chat with strangers. This is different; guests and staff were kind and easy going. I felt completely at ease and ready to enjoy the several coffee and tea choices each morning (and afternoon, if you’d like). And Shelter Island has so much to offer — kayaking and hiking in a nature preserve, local small town character, biking from beach to beach. Absolutely lovely girls’ long weekend away! Couldn’t have been better. Thank you Beth and Caitlyn!

We enjoyed our stay so very much! In fact, we had been before and had so much fun, that we made it a priority to return. The bed & bedding are super comfy, the grounds are beautiful and the addition of the pool is a highlight! Oh and the breakfast and snacks are healthy & delicious! The owner, Beth, is warm, kind and generous. Her staff members are friendly & helpful. We can't wait to return.

This is an absolutely stunning and amazing bed-and-breakfast with amazing manicured grounds and fine rooms. The pool is breathtaking as well as the beach five minutes from the hotel. The service is spectacular. Beth is the owner and is always gracious and very hospitable. Thank you Beth for making our 21st wedding anniversary, June 24, 2022

Seven on Shelter is a tastefully conceived, expertly run, and seriously relaxing inn. The staff were warm, available, and attentive to every detail. The grounds are beautifully arranged with a heated swimming pool, comfortable seating and lounge chairs, perfect for gathering with your group or spending time alone reading by the pool. The house has a kind of Scandinavian feel: very natural with lots of fresh air because of the open doors and windows (though the rooms do have ample AC). Our en suite room was quiet, immaculate, very pretty, and well stocked with thoughtfully-selected toiletries. Sunset Beach is a ten minute walk away (or probably five minutes by bike, which are provided). Breakfast -- BREAKFAST! Delicious pastries, berries, jams, cheeses, cappuccinos. In short: Our two nights at Seven were perfect in every way. Well, maybe there was one thing that could have been better. A longer stay.

Seven on Shelter Island is an absolutely wonderful B&B! The inn is modern and elegant, the bed is huge and comfortable, the shower is fabulous, the amenities are perfect. The breakfasts are plentiful and delicious w the easy ability to make cappuccinos, heat delicious local pastries, and enjoy fresh seasonal fruit with granola or yogurt. The host Beth and her staff are welcoming and warm, with a thorough knowledge of the island’s restaurants and beaches. It’s location is perfect w a beautiful beach only 5 min walk away. When we encountered closed restaurants (Wednesday evening in mid-June), Beth arranged for local oysters so we could dine in comfort at the inn. Above and beyond - we totally recommend this delightful inn!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to book a stay at Seven in August just after the heated pool was completed. Absolutely stunning. Beth the owner does not miss a detail with fresh flowers in the room, a straw tote with rolled towels, and an immaculate and interesting art collection. Plenty of bicycles, for an easy 1 minute ride to the Sunset Beach scene. The best part is heading back to Seven when you’re ready to ditch the music and the crowds, just in time to have a glass of wine by the pool before your dinner reservation. Highly recommend, this place caters to a sophisticated, unpretentious crowd who has an appreciation for the finer details. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had a wonderful stay at Seven this past weekend! We were greeted warmly upon arrival and given helpful tips on the area. Our room was great! Beautiful decorated and furnished with everything you could need. The building is gorgeous and has several spaces to relax indoors and outdoors. The front porch was a great place to enjoy coffee and breakfast. The breakfast was amazing! You were provided with a picnic basket full of pastries, cheese, yogurt, fruit, granola, hard boiled eggs, and orange juice. You are also provided with a thermos of delicious coffee! There is a beautiful beach that is a short walk away, and many close by options for dinner. Beth and Dominika were extremely friendly and helpful. They had great tips on things to do and places to go. I can’t say enough good things about this place, and hope to return!
