My brother booked the Rams head for his wedding which has been planned over the last 12 months. The venue is beautiful however the service from management is SHOCKING. After demanding more money at every available opportunity from the bride and groom she then informed them at twenty past ten at night that unless they paid her another thousands dollars...

First and foremost, I want to thank your brother and your new sister-in-law for choosing the Ram’s Head Inn to host their celebration. In the words of the bride’s father, it was a “Martha Stewart” event and I appreciated all of the compliments throughout the evening from attanding friends and family. I certainly also appreciate the desire for the festivities...

We stayed here at the beginning of the season in May and fell in love with it. Although we had seen the property before we had never stayed here. The property is beautiful and overlooks the water. They have beautiful gardens, lawns and a private beach area. We have stayed at many Inns before and this one is quite nice....

I gave 3 stars only because 4 stars means "very good". The place is good, but not very good to my taste. So, 3.5 stars on this scale would be better. Just couldn't figure out how to do it on Trip Advisor. We have mixed feelings about the place. Stayed here over July 4th weekend. The grounds very nice. Great...

As always, I appreciate your taking the time to write a review, though I am disappointed that the Inn fell short of your expectations. First, I wanted to again thank you for discovering that the offending window had been locked improperly and that, as you said, "with a quick open and close of the lock", the window became quiet. I...

Shelter Island is a beautiful diamond only some hours away from NYC . And on this island the Rams Head Inn is a Mansion with a beautiful garden and a very nice private beach . It is chique without being posh . Really a nice place to feel 100% relaxed . Breakfast is not the strongest asset ...

We had a lovey relaxing weekend at Ram's Head Inn. The room was clean and pretty and the staff very friendly. The food was very good and the grounds very nice. Very peaceful place. I love that there was no TV in our room. The hotel has clearly made a choice to keep things simple, classic, and low key. It...

Ram's Head Inn is a very mixed bag. Good — Very attractive building appearance and grounds. Public rooms are very appealing and it is easy to see why this is a frequent wedding venue. Not so much — 1. Small rooms and baths (see photos). Economics of running a seasonal inn like this must be very difficult. Plugs for sink...

The weekend was magnificent. The hotel was spacious, clean and the food wonderful. We enjoyed afternoons in the sunshine on the inviting lawn chairs scattered over the relaxing green lawn. We took long walks delighting in the beautiful homes and grounds , as well as, the stunning waterscapes. All in all, it was the perfect place to spend our anniversary...

Visited late September, two bedroom suite was comfortable and very large although located right above the main entrance so a bit noisy, especially since there was a large wedding event that went on until the late hours. Hotel manager always seemed a bit annoyed when answering questions, hospitals attitude was thin on the ground. Restaurant food amazing, free buffet self-serve...

A gorgeous, secluded hotel on a hill overlooking the harbor. Beautiful decor throughout, very nice amenities. We stayed here for two nights in August - our first time on Shelter Island, and would definitely return. You really feel like you've traveled back in time when you arrive. We stayed in one of the rooms with a shared bath, which was...
