My husband and I had a wonderful visit at The Shelter Island House. Suzanne and her staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The pool was wonderful and we loved that the bar had a little action at night. Jordan by the outside bar was very friendly and the rooms were very clean, especially for beach living

Enjoyed the hotel very much. Excellent breakfast, their restaurant, the Tavern, is very good--ate there twice--the suite we took was separate from the hotel, near the pool and very quiet. All in all, a very nice place and one that should be considered if going to Shelter Island.The staff is very good.

This was my first time staying at this property and we stayed in the 3 bedroom Osprey Suite, it was perfect. The suite itself was very spacious with a wrap around porch and everything you could want. The fully equipped large kitchen was great because you felt like you were in a private home but you had all the luxuries...

First time staying here since it changed over from la Maison Blanche, and it is better than ever. The new owners have updated the rooms, outdoor space and restaurant/lobby. Our room was beautiful, quiet, clean and modern - totally loved it. Very highly recommended.

My experience at the Shelter Island House was wonderful! The staff was lovely and gave great suggestions on things to do on the island and local eateries. The rooms were well kept and relaxing. I plan to go back in the fall to see the foliage; I hear the island is beautiful that time of year!
