BETWEEN LAND & SEA
Opening in Spring 2022, The Shoals is a new waterfront hotel in Southold, on the North Fork of Long Island. Often referred to as ‘the fork less taken’, the picturesque hamlet is known for its rich maritime culture, rural wine country, roadside farm stands, tranquil beaches, and friendly small-town spirit.
Situated dockside on a marina overlooking the Peconic Bay and Shelter Island, The Shoals is the first of its kind in the area; a hybrid “boatel” that features 20 hotel suites and 20 boat slips, making it accessible by both land and sea. Guests can arrive by train, seaplane, or boat - uniquely positioning the hotel as both a destination for guests and a social hub for locals. Inspired by the historic working marina on which the hotel is set, renowned architect Andrew V Gimbertone and acclaimed designer Thomas Juul-Hanson designed The Shoals to pay homage to the property's nautical history by integrating custom marine design elements, and framing rooms to accentuate stunning coastal views. The building’s cedar-shingle exterior and clean lines is reminiscent of New England modernism, with two stories of guest rooms each thoughtfully situated for views of the bay and marina. A place for rest and recreation, each room offers ample private outdoor space and unparalleled access to the bay via the hotel's own vintage Chris-Craft charter boat (which can be used as a shuttle to private beaches & nearby restaurants, or simply to explore the area by water). With an aligned effort to embrace and support the working waterfront, The Shoals has partnered with local favorite and female-owned family business, Little Ram Oyster Company, on a robust oyster program that will be operated out of a renovated waterfront building on the property. Additional public areas include a brick-and-mortar sundry shop and versatile event space with sweeping sunset views.
