Great location--quiet and peaceful on the bay, across from Shelter Island. Gave us a bottle of complimentary North Fork wine on check in! Rooms are a bit dated, but not there to hang out inside. The deck/beach was quite restorative. Easy walk to center of Greenport town.

i have been enjoying the wonderful hospitality at the family owned and run Silver Sands several times a year for over 12 years. Although, I live 10 minutes from the ocean, nothing beats waking up and drinking my coffee on the serene beach at Silver Sands. The accommodations are rustic yet spotless. I am always greeted with a warm welcome...

Its like taking a trip back to Long Island in its glory days of the 1950s. The shaggy rugs and turquoise floor tiles are amazing, not to...

There's shabby chic, and then there's rundown. I stayed in unit 2 and there was rust on some of the metal surfaces and lots of scrapes and unattractive wear and tear on the wooden doors and walls. It's a great location with a pretty nice beach, but just not kept up.

My boyfriend surprised me with a Valentine's weekend get-a-way to the Silver Sands Motel. This retro motel is very close to the heart of Greenport and nestled right on the water. IT takes you back in time to when things were simple and easy. It was so relaxing to look out at Pipes Cove and watch the snow fall. The...

Always a warm welcome, always very attentive service. The waterfront retro-style motel offers a quiet getaway in beautiful surroundings. The beds are really cozy and hot water supply in the showers plentiful - features I really came to appreciate as my visit happened during the cold days of February. If the weather keeps you from going outdoors, the free wifi...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"DIRTY DANCING meets THE FLAMINGO KID" - NEW YORK MAGAZINE, April 2007The Silver Sands Motel and Beach Cottages was established in 1961 on 40 unspoiled acres on Peconic Bay in Greenport, facing Shelter Island. We are a quiet getaway for beach and nature lovers, and their families, and have been for generations. Our rooms and cottages all have microwaves, mini-fridges, television, AC, and some have efficiency units as well as full kitchens. We are set off the beaten-path in Greenport, down a wooded road on the beach and are adjacent to 18 acres of pristine wetlands. Over the last half-century, we have been host to families, couples, studio film shoots, major fashion shoots, and have been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, TIME-OUT, TRAVEL & LEISURE, and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL MAGAZINE. ... more   less
