Shelter Island

Shelter Island Hotels – Getaway to your best stay!

Once you discover Shelter Island, you will definitely want to stay awhile. Since the Island is small, there are only a handful of Shelter Island Hotels, many of which also have excellent restaurants. Therefore, remember to BOOK EARLY – especially on July 4th and other holiday weekends. In addition, summer season is always more expensive than off-season and that is reflected in pricing. Most of these hotels stay open year-round, available for cozy winter retreats. Read on for some of my favorite picks in wonderful Shelter Island.

Sunset Beach Hotel

Sunset Beach Hotel

Escape to Sunset and you’ll feel like you’re waking up in a different world with a beachy casual-chic attitude.  Feel a European vibe in this unique, charming hotel located on Crescent Beach. Enjoy complimentary beach chairs, towels, and bicycles. Play petanque and pingpong. Moreover, you will find paddle board rentals and a massage tent for an excellent massage on the beach.

Sunset Beach Hotel has a terrific outdoor lounge area with a fire pit and DJ. The three-level restaurant and bar area are always filled with a lively crowd.  Rosé wine is flowing and a Frosé  is perfect on a hot summer day. Large, clean studio rooms all have spacious sundecks facing the bay. Decor is  minimalist with a large closet but could use a place to put folded clothing. Being right on the beach makes this the ultimate spot with a French twist.
