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!
