Long Island’s North Shore has always attracted weekenders in search of a low-key alternative to the jam-packed Hamptons. Thankfully, this scenic peninsula finally has a home base worthy of its world-class vineyards and vistas. It comes in the form of a trio of recently redesigned buildings, bordering a quarter-mile of private beach. And though faint glimmers of its mom-and-pop past are still visible—the bar, with its ruby red booths, still contains a piano from the property’s motel days (a collaboration with the Manhattan-based music venue, Joe’s Pub, hosts live performances every Saturday), while the blonde-wood lobby is reminiscent of a vintage train cabin—they are eclipsed by artfully revamped spaces, starting with the guest rooms. Splashed in a decidedly New England palette of blues and maroons, the 55 accommodations take a page from their adjacent coastline, all untreated cedar, knotted throws and nautical textiles; color-blocked bedspreads, made in Brooklyn, add a hipster charm. Ingredients at the hotel’s restaurant, where must-haves include the lobster beignets and oyster po’boys, are sourced strictly from the North Fork and Atlantic Seaboard—just another tasteful tribute to your bucolic surroundings.
In the Area
The North Fork is less than 100 miles from New York City and easily accessible via the Long Island Rail Road, the Cross Sound Ferry, or the Hampton Jitney. But its idyllic attractions (all short bike rides or drives from the hotel), which include the Bedell Cellars (a pioneering winery that started operations in 1980), one of the country’s largest lavender farms, a 19th-century lighthouse, and a restored 1920s carousel, all fuel a wonderfully far-flung vibe. If you’d rather not too stray too far from the hotel, don’t forget you have 1,400 feet of private beach right at your doorstep.
How to Get There

We stayed at the hotel to celebrate a bachelorette. The hotel has many charms and was the perfect site to host the occasion. The staff were so accommodating and all the thoughtful details of the hotel helped make the weekend a memorable occasion.
Loved my time at Sound View and can't wait to go back! Every detail is thoughtfully reviewed and it is impossible not to feel relaxed here. The views are also unbeatable, and we loved dining at the Halyard. Don't miss the evening piano bar entertainment off the lobby.
Each room has a picture window view of the water and the restaurant is phenomenal! You could hear the water inside the room and the cars at night actually were restful too. No honking or anything. Super cozy Swedish bed (I think). Cool out of the box piano bar with music. Cool spot! Love it here.
My husband and I went to the SoundView for our 10th Anniversary and it was amazing! From the mulled wine greeting us to the complementary passes to the Salt room to the amazing view in our room. Everything was perfect! Oh and the amazing breakfast too! The room wa perfect and that view!!!!! Highly recommend can only imagine how spectacular this place is in the Summer. Will go back again!
