On the western corner of New York's Shelter Island, the Pridwin offers guests panoramic views of Southold Bay and easy access to Crescent Beach. Some of the rooms and cottages come with water views, while others have fireplaces. Guests can explore the island by land or sea with the hotel's stable of kayaks and bicycles. Parents can dine in a civilized manner, thanks to the nightly movie screening for kids. Locavores will appreciate the fresh fish, caught daily by The Pridwin's owner and his son.
The Pridwin Hotel has its own private pool and beach for swimming and lined with chaise longes for just relaxing.
