Charming, great location, very nice people running it, clean and quiet. We will definitely be back. Lovely scenic location on a bay beach. We like to get up in the morning and have coffee on the beach.

Units and cabins are right near a very nice private beach that is quiet and pleasant. The location is near Greenport center where dining to suit a variety of tastes and budgets is abundant. Easy travel to other North Fork attractions.

This, I think, is our fourth visit to Silver Sands & it does not disappoint- peaceful, quaint, and right on the water! This is exactly the place I need to relax and enjoy the summertime; be aware, however , that if you prefer "shiny, fancier" (& much more expensive) surroundings that populate the Hamptons and the North Fork these days,...

Yes back for our 10th year with the children and my Dad from England. You don't come here for 5star accommodation, it's adequate enough, but the beautiful Peconic Bay, swimming pool, space, beach, nature and tranquility. Two weeks is not enough.

I am a photographer from NYC that does a lot of shooting on eastern Long Island and I have stayed at the Silver Sands in Greenport many times. The location is great and provides access to a wide variety of locations including the area vineyards, beaches, parks and the town of Greenport. This is a family run motel and the...

I have to agree with the reviewer from May 2015, who stated that the motel was simply too run down to be acceptable. The owners are very sweet and helpful and , make no mistake, the setting is lovely, but the overall condition of the rooms with rust stains, clogged drains, sofas with stuffing escaping, was just not acceptable to...

Great location--quiet and peaceful on the bay, across from Shelter Island. Gave us a bottle of complimentary North Fork wine on check in! Rooms are a bit dated, but not there to hang out inside. The deck/beach was quite restorative. Easy walk to center of Greenport town.

i have been enjoying the wonderful hospitality at the family owned and run Silver Sands several times a year for over 12 years. Although, I live 10 minutes from the ocean, nothing beats waking up and drinking my coffee on the serene beach at Silver Sands. The accommodations are rustic yet spotless. I am always greeted with a warm welcome...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"DIRTY DANCING meets THE FLAMINGO KID" - NEW YORK MAGAZINE, April 2007The Silver Sands Motel and Beach Cottages was established in 1961 on 40 unspoiled acres on Peconic Bay in Greenport, facing Shelter Island. We are a quiet getaway for beach and nature lovers, and their families, and have been for generations. Our rooms and cottages all have microwaves, mini-fridges, television, AC, and some have efficiency units as well as full kitchens. We are set off the beaten-path in Greenport, down a wooded road on the beach and are adjacent to 18 acres of pristine wetlands. Over the last half-century, we have been host to families, couples, studio film shoots, major fashion shoots, and have been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, TIME-OUT, TRAVEL & LEISURE, and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL MAGAZINE. ... more   less
