Cape Resorts Adds The Pridwin Hotel and Cottages to its Portfolio

Cape Resorts recently announced its latest hospitality project in Eastern Long Island with the acquisition of The Pridwin Hotel and Cottages on Shelter Island, New York. The project is a partnership with the Petry family, which has owned and operated the hotel since 1961. Scheduled to open in summer 2022, the waterfront hotel and its 16 private cottages are currently undergoing an extensive renovation.

Sprawled across more than seven acres of Shelter Island’s Crescent Beach overlooking the Shelter Island Sound, the 49-room resort will have a private beach and pool services, a full-service spa, a 100-seat restaurant and bicycles for touring nearby shops and attractions.

The classic American resort hotel has been providing hospitality since it opened its doors to guests in 1927. In 1961, The Pridwin was purchased by the partnership of three families, including the Petry family which has operated the hotel for the past several decades. The Petry family partnered with Cape Resorts to renovate and operate the hotel.

“Our family could not be more thrilled for this next chapter of The Pridwin,” said Glenn Petry in a press release. “In Curtis Bashaw [managing partner of Cape Resorts] and his team we have found kindred spirits dedicated to tradition and community. When we saw the meticulous restoration of Congress Hall in Cape May and the bustling year-round business they had created from their venerable seasonal hotel we knew it was a match we hoped to make.”

Led by Cape Resorts’ interior design director, Colleen Bashaw, The Pridwin’s redesign will maintain and preserve the key elements of the original building which opened to guests in 1927.

The Pridwin is Cape Resorts’ second property located on the East End and joins its portfolio of Northeast resorts which include Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor, NY and a collection of hotels in Cape May, NJ, including the historic Congress Hall and Virginia hotels, the Beach Shack, and the 62-acre Beach Plum Farm & Cottages.
