We are so excited for Memorial Day Weekend, which is in so many ways and for so many people the kick-off of the summer season. Shelter Island is a great place to be for Memorial Day weekend, between the crisp, freshness of spring and the pure Americana of the Memorial Day parade in the Center of the island, you may feel like you have slipped into the Andy Griffith’s Show or a musical piece by Aaron Copland. You could also be completely detached from ‘the goings on” and just kick back by the pool, or hop on a bike to a quiet beach or take a hike through Mashomack and just feel the rejuvenating powers of nature in the early growth season.
At the Pridwin, we’re open as if it was summer season. The water may be a little brisk, but the kayaks and paddle boards are ready, the pool is open and our dining room and bar are open. Beginning Friday evening our bar opens and we we’ll be serving dinner until 10:30 PM, then breakfast, lunch and dinner through breakfast on Memorial Day morning.
We are not advertising the fact that we are serving meals as we typically serve only the hotel guests during Memorial Day weekend. But you, faithful blog readers, we would be glad to have visit. Feel free to make a reservation or just walk-in if you’re interested. We’d love to see you. For any inquiries, please call our Front Desk at 631-749-0476.

Well, technically the 2013 “off” season begins this coming weekend, May 10, when the Pridwin opens. The Pridwin summer season doesn’t begin untli Sunday, June 23.
What does this actually mean? It means that the Pridwin’s hotel rooms and cottages are open and available seven days a week beginning on Friday, May 10 and will remain open through Columbus Day weekend. During this time the Pridwin offers continental breakfast to our guests. What distinguishes the summer season ((June 23 through Labor Day) is that the Pridwin restaurant will be completely open serving full breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, seven days a week, as will be the Pridwin bar, overlooking the bay and offering the mixological specialites (both alcoholic and alcohol free) the Pridwin has long been known for.
Between now and when the summer season begins on June 23, there is Memorial Day Weekend, which offers a special preview of summer life at the Pridwin. During Memorial Day Weekend, the Pridwin restaurant is open serving all meals with breakfast and dinner included for a special holiday weekend price. Check in wth your Front Office for more details. We look forward to seeing you sometime this season!

It is chilly out here on Shelter Island, but you can feel the difference in the air, the turn to spring, the lengthening of days. The Pridwin is beginning the rise out of hibernation, though there was not much rest for the “great white lady” this winter. A major renovation of the famed Pridwin deck has taken place along with a number of changes within to rooms and our cottages. Changes that maintain the Pridwin character, but aim to keep her fresh for each new season.
Some specific renovations are that we have painted the interior of Cabin J and restored the wood floor, which mirrors similar renovations to Cabins C, D, E, F and G last season. Cabin K is also receiving some restorative treatments. Inside the hotel we are bringing new carpet to a number of rooms, along with other updates under the guidance of our friend and design guru Glenn Gissler (www.glenngisslerdesign.com).
More on that later….!
