The Pridwin – Awaking from Winter and Getting Busy

March 16th, 2014

Few of our guests venture out to Shelter Island in the winter and see the Pridwin in its hibernating state, cold and quiet, like the island itself.    The dominant color around is gray, but if you look closely at the water, which appears often like a perfect sheet of slate, you can see green and blue, awaiting their turn at the landscape.

Each March, the Pridwin emerges from its hibernation.    Each season we embark on renovations and projects.    Last year the big project was to rebuild the front deck of the hotel.   This season we will renovate the dining room and deck roof.  With the addition of some fresh paint and new lighting, the Pridwin deck will be even more spectacular this summer.

We will also continue with our hotel room renovations under the guidance of architect and designer Glenn Gissler (

The Pridwin will open this season on Friday March 16 and for the summer season on June 23 with the opening of the Pridwin restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner.   The first Pridwin Wednesday night cookout will take place on Wednesday, July 2.

Happy almost spring!

Moving in the Right Direction!

January 12th, 2014

We love the turn of the New Year because it means we are moving in the right direction.    The days are getting longer, which means there is light at the end of the long winter tunnel.

The Pridwin team is already working on improvements for the 2014 season that you will both see and feel.     Beyond our ongoing renovations program of the rooms and common areas we aim to increase staff so that we will be able to offer more general assistance with your baggage and such on arrival as well as in the area of concierge service, so we can help you explore more of what makes Shelter Island and the twin forks so incredibly special.

The Pridwin will open again in May!



The Pridwin is Closed for the 2013 Season

October 20th, 2013

We want to thank all of our long-time and new guests from this past year for joining us for a great season at the Pridwin Hotel.    This season we were blessed with fantastic weather and more beautiful sunsets than we could count.    The Wednesday Night Cookouts were exceptionally fun and we really have to thank The Lone Sharks, Majic, and The Realm for inspiring the dancing on our Wednesday nights.

Already looking forward to the summer of 2014, we have mapped out plans for renovations and improvements.    We’ll be keeping busy this winter.   But please do check in from time to time as we’ll be posting information about next season right here on the website.

Have a great fall and winter!
