This has been my "go to" spot when wanting an easy two to four day getaway over the last 12 years. My local airport now offers direct service. Bay Club Hotel's courteous and friendly staff picks me up curbside from the airport and takes me to their little Shelter Island oasis. They offer a courtesy breakfast in the mornings and their in-house restaurant offers good food in the afternoons and evenings. And their wine list is respectable. John, their evening bartender, made our most recent trip extra fun with his joking but attentive manner. I really loved their previous decor . . . It seemed island retro rat-pack, but they are almost done with a remodel to a more sleek rat pack modern style, which completely moved the bar to center up to the double front foors. Seems like more work for kitchen staff, but hopefully it will work well for them. Their remodel work while we were there did not provide disruption and we couldn't believe the lightning speed they were working. The hotel is very helpful with figuring out ways for you to get around town the most economically. They will take you downtown to catch the metro-lines or just up the street to catch the bus to head to Old Town. So, being without a car is not a detriment if you are not on a rigid schedule and are truly there to enjoy the relaxation. This is the first time we never made it out poolside to enjoy the views of the marina and gentle breezes. I'll be back for more soon. The desk staff is also very helpful with alternate restaurant locations on Shelter Island. So far, our two faves over the years are the Red Sail Inn when we arrived too late for the hotel breakfast, and Fiddler's Green for a wonderful dinner and wine list when we had a larger party of six.
