Silver Sands exceeded our expectations in basically every way. Terry checked us in and he was so friendly and helpful. The rooms, while nothing extravagant, were so nice and clean--exactly what we were hoping for in a short weekend getaway (especially for the price!). The...More

About
Description
"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 More 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.

I am not sure but I do know there are no steps to go into the room we stayed in. I do not know if the door would be wide enough though for a wheel chair. You should give them a call And check it out. If you go, enjoy ;)
