The Pridwin Hotel and Cottages is a classic all-wood American resort hotel that has been providing guests a unique experience on Shelter Island since 1927. The nearly 10-acre site on Crescent Beach was selected for its protected waters, gentle bay breezes, and for its breathtaking water views.

A seasonal hotel, the Pridwin opens in May and is in full swing from the last weekend of June through Labor Day with a range of resort amenities including a private pool, small private beach, two docks, the excellent Moussa Drame Tennis Club and the Pridwin bar, lounge and restaurant overlooking the bay.
