The Chequit Inn
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- "Designed for dreamy summer jaunts to the East End" (Travel + Leisure)
- This boutique hotel sits in an 1870s-era hostelry; Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe stayed here in the '40s and '50s
- Enjoy a complimentary breakfast on the hotel's sweeping front porch overlooking the harbor
This charming boutique hotel offers a tranquil but stylish destination on an island that's "just minutes from the North and South Forks, yet ... it feels worlds away" (Conde Nast Traveler). Restored in 2015, the hotel feels like a B&B, with little extra touches like free use of beach umbrellas and towels as well as illustrated maps of the island.
Stays here are focused on couples, with a variety of King rooms available. Freshly renovated furnishings feature restored hardwood floors, luxury bedding and rainfall showers and marble-accented bathrooms. Thanks to the Chequit's hilltop location, even though the property isn't on the shore, you can still get a view of the water from the guest-exclusive wraparound porch off the lobby. And like a B&B, complimentary breakfast is served daily in the lobby, but guests can opt to have coffee and pastries delivered to their rooms free of charge.
Located at the eastern end of Long Island, Shelter Island is "the unassuming, quietly sophisticated alternative to the flash of the Hamptons" (Forbes). A full one-third of the island is a nature preserve, meaning there's plenty of bicycling, hiking and water activities like kayaking or paddleboarding -- or just hang out on one of the island's beaches or watch sailboats and yachts cruise in and out of the marinas.
