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!

The pros are this B&B has an excellent staff. They are very friendly and accommodating. The setting is quaint and relaxing, about a 1/4 mile from the beach. The rooms are nice and fairly new with good linens. The pool is nice and the grounds are beautiful. Suggestions for improvement: Add a Nespresso machine to each room so coffee is...

Although the staff is nice and helpful, the manager of this hotel is a very pretentious lady. We were offered a room with such a high temperature we could cook an egg in it.

We stayed here midweek, preseason and found everything to our liking. This was more like a B&B (only 11 or 12 rooms), than a hotel. There is a pool in the back, which was closed, but looked like a event size. The Inn is on a quiet street a block from the beach. Parking is on the premises. Breakfast was...

The holiday weekend we spent at The Shelter island House was lovely. We felt that we were part of a small, caring family during our stay. The King suite room (#9) was very well appointed, and had a pleasant view of the back porch and yard. The empty, generously sized refrigerator allowed us to stock it with local products and...
