This place is a classic. The owners are awesome and willing to do anything within their power to make your stay pleasant. The water and the beach although only a quarter of a mile wide were great, along with the spectacular view. They even upgraded us without a request , to two rooms ( my husband, myself and our adult...

Our visit unfortunately was very short, just two nights this past week. Our last visit was nearly a year ago and so we were looking forward to returning. Again, a pleasant stay. The staff could not be more friendly and accomodating. It's great location and welcoming atmosphere will not disappoint you. We can't wait to return again, hopefully very soon.

The Silver Sands is a step back from the chaos of modern living. The wonderful hosts, unparalleled beach and pool, and caring staff make a stay relaxing in all respects. We have been visitng the Silver Sands since the 1960's and feel it is part of our family. Our grown children learned to swim in the calm bay waters and...

What a treat for the whole family! We have stayed at Silver Sands before, and we always are refreshed by the experience. From the gorgeous views of the bay from the motel and cottages, to the tranqulity of the nature preserve, the Silver Sands can't be beat for rest and relaxation. We have stayed here with infants and elderly, and...

The owners and staff here are very friendly. They certainly try their best to make guests happy. The location is great. Beyond that however this place is like traveling back in time to 1960. Very dated and in dire need of a major renovation. Unfortunately it is basically a tired old motel with a number of cottages around the property....

This will be our 9th season going; there have been at least 35 each year. We take up many rooms and cabins and have a wonderful time spending time together at the boat house, visiting in town, going to a movie as well as heading to either Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun by boat out of Orient Point. We are going...

A few years ago, we happened on this neat motel on the shores of Peconic Bay on what has becoime an annual trip to Greenport in late October. It's very clean and the owner is one of the nicest people! It's not "modern" in the current sense and is reminiscent of the 1950's, but the rooms are comfortable and we...

I was so happy that I checked this site before booking a room for my stay this weekend. Stayed just one night with a friend and we were so pleased with this place! Rooms were certainly no frills, but so much nicer than your typical motel. I've stayed at Cliffside Resort and Morning Glory in the past which were both...

My husband grew up in Greenport and loves to return. We stayed at Silver Sands the first time we came as a couple and found the owners warm and accommodating. We stayed in a cottage with two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and screened in porch. They have barbeques for the guests to use and many picnic tables. Breakfast is provided...

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
