The Pridwin

Shore Rd., Shelter Island, New York, 11964, USA

In a prime spot on Crescent Beach, The Pridwin was completely renovated in 2012 to create a bright, beachy hip (but not "sceney"), family-friendly resort. It's been around since 1927, with the same family at the helm since the 1950's, and retains some endearing old touches: partially slatted doors that allow air flow (but also some light) into your room; creaky hallway floors; vintage swimsuits and old photos of the property on display. Meals are served on a large waterfront deck, a nice setting for dinner, when piped Brazilian jazz adds to the romantic aura. During the day, Carribbean and classical music is piped throughout the common areas. For the ultimate family party, come on a Wednesday night for the cookout, which can attract around 400–500 locals, guests, and visitors for burgers, hot dogs, and freshly-caught fish.
