A Visit to the Pridwin Hotel on Shelter Island

“The Pridwin opened in 1927… [the renovation] captures the spirit of the Pridwin…These old hotels are spirit-filled in the best sense of the word. They contain the memories and traditions of 95 years of vacationers. We wanted to let the building be what it’s supposed to be —we just let it talk to us. In the main house we have 33 guest rooms and now we have 16 cottages on the property. They’re magical, there were 9 and we added 7. The feeling of them is very relaxed and comfortable—a relaxed elegance.”

Take A Look Inside Luann de Lesseps’s House in Sag Harbor

“Working with RLW4 Builders, she added a master bedroom suite, constructed a dormer for her daughter Victoria’s bedroom, and put up a new roof and cedar siding, among other fixes. “I wanted to conserve the home and improve it at the same time,” she says of the old whaling captain’s house. The result is an inviting, yet refined space, filled with objects from de Lesseps’s travels around the world and family heirlooms, including the oil still life painting hung in the dining room.”
