Located on Shelter Island, The Dering Inn overlooks the picturesque harbor from which it takes its name and makes the ideal place to come and settle in. Private and discreet, its array of waterfront villas and suites, scenically situated pristine pool, tennis court, dock and over seven acres of walkabout space give guests room to relax, reflect and rejuvenate. The accommodations are deluxe and unique; the ambiance, tranquil and unhurried – a pace that has been the hallmark of Shelter Island to this day. It is why Dering is so rightfully referred to as the "un-Hamptons". It is within a five minute walking distance of the main village where you'll find restaurants/bars, markets, shops, bike rentals, and more. Only two hours from New York, acc Read More »

Dering Harbor Inn Reviews

Date posted: December 31, 2014
Review: When we knew we were going to get married locally, the first thing we decided was that we were not going to do it in a crowded city setting! We knew we either wanted to the beach, a vineyard, or something else that was a little off the beaten path. And my husband said, “what about Shelter Island,” and I thought, “now that was a brilliant idea … what kinds of venues do they have there?” The first search result I got when I searched was Dering Harbor. And it’s where we ended up getting married. Dering Harbor in short was exactly what we were going for when we first started imagining our wedding. Again, somewhere off the beaten path, calm, more of a laid-back tone, a slower pace of life, a place where we could “get away from it all” and just focus on us and the people that we love. No hustle and bustle. This place is encircled by beautiful shade trees and has a secluded nature-y feel. The harbor of course is gorgeous. Perfect scenery for our wedding ceremony. Another reason we chose Dering Harbor is because it’s a hotel. You don’t have to have an event to come here; you can just come here for a weekend getaway to relax, and that’s something we are planning on doing in the future, maybe for our anniversary or something! We wanted to have our wedding at a venue which we could go back to and relieve our wonderful day. We can come back here anytime and stay in one of their beautiful harbor-side rooms. They have an outdoor pool, a tennis court, and all kinds of lovely walking paths. You’re just a short walk from the main village, though it doesn’t feel like it! It feels like you’re nowhere near the heart of town. Our wedding was wonderful; there was a beautiful sunset that evening, and there was a nice breeze, not too much, just enough to keep the air moving on a warm day. The sun sparkling on the water was beautiful, and we had a fun time watching the boats. We did the entire reception outdoors under a big tent. There was a dance floor, amazing food, a bar, and everything. It was a lot of fun, and everything worked out perfectly. We are so excited to come back sometime and stay for a few days! We know it will be just so relaxing. I can’t wait to have the same great food again, look out over the water at the same gorgeous views, and walk on the same paths, maybe even stay in the same room. This is a memory I want to relive over and over!

Review: I know when a lot of people go to plan their weddings around here, their first thought is, “let’s get married on the beach!” It was actually our first thought too And then we started thinking harder about it, and realized it was maybe not the best idea. Yes, the beach romantic and beautiful, but it’s also really windy and sandy and not the most comfortable place to say your vows! Here’s a lovely alternative: Dering Harbor. You get married right up against the waterfront, but you’re not on the beach. The harbor is secluded, cozy, and sheltered. The wind isn’t fierce at all. The weather is very calm. It certainly was on the day we got married. We loved watching all the boats too! The harbor is just full of little vessels, and they did add some ambiance that we wouldn’t have had on the beach. You’re up on a bit of a bluff, so you are looking down over the harbor and the boats. And then there’s the inn itself. We did choose to stay here in the honeymoon suite, and we loved it! You are sort of nestled up snugly on the hillside under all these shade trees, and everything is really green and pretty. There’s a dock you can go walking on down by the water, and they have a nice swimming pool and a tennis court. The rooms themselves can’t be beat! Ours had nicely painted walls, lovely furniture, and frankly felt more like a real bedroom in a house than a hotel room. We had a gorgeous view out on our patio, and spent a lot of time out there just enjoying the weather and the scenery. A couple of our friends stayed here too and said they had a lovely time! Their rooms were really nice too, and they said they did some of the fitness activities they offer and had a great experience. This place really deserves more press. If you’re looking for something a little different than your standard beachside wedding, but you still want to be by the water, you will love it here.
