"Last Summer I spent a beautiful weekend at Seven on Shelter Island, Shelter Island’s premier luxury bed and breakfast owned and operated by art curator Beth Swanström . . .


I didn’t think this lovely inn, located just steps from popular Crescent Beach, could get any better - until it did . . ."

In adding experiential offerings, Seven on Shelter Island recently partnered with Kingfisher Yachting, a yachting lifestyle company with annual membership that offers Seven’s guests luxury excursion experiences on a restored 1959 Huckins motor yacht around Shelter Island and the Hamptons. "

Just in time for late summer, Seven on Shelter Island added a wealth of amenities for guests. There’s an outdoor gym complete with a Peleton and Mirror, as well as wellness treatments, such as yoga and sound bathing. A new pool is outfitted with luxury cabanas and custom outdoor pieces from Marcel Wanders’ Reverie collection in the form of black lattice lounge furniture with red accents - the first of its kind seen on the island.
