Life at Sound View Hotel

scroll-indicator Scroll Down

More than a lobby

The story begins in our lobby lounge, where windows frame the Sound and travelers gather who appreciate a strong coffee along with their sunrise. For a longer linger, fold into a plush sofa surrounded by the works of North Fork artists. And at day's end, wind down with cocktails in-hand, as you watch the sun set over the Sound.

Private Beach

All of our rooms are waterfront with direct access to our quarter mile of Private Beach. Enjoy food and cocktails from Jack's Shack at your lounger or go for a swim in the Sound. Like the beaches of the South of France, we have a mixture of fine sand and well rounded pebbles that some guests love on their feet bottoms while others prefer a water shoes or footwear.

Seaside Pool

Our seaside pool is the perfect spot to enjoy the life aquatic, overlooking the Sound just a few sandy steps away. Take a seat on a custom loungers of canvas and sailing rope and count the shades of blue from the shore to the horizon. Should hunger strike, a classic summer meal from Jack’s Shack — the concession stand that began it all — is just a raised-hand away. And when the hour strikes and the sun kisses the sea, bring the magic back up as strung lights illuminate the deck while music carries on the breeze.

The pool is currently open for swimming daily from 10am-6pm through September 27, weather dependent.

Feed Your Spirit

We’re not just a seaside hotel, we’re a destination built to inspire. And it’s all about the people here. Take part in our private beach socially distanced activities like a private sailing lesson, waterside art classes, or a classic beach fire filled with s’mores and star gazing. If in the mood for some quintessential North Fork activities, the front desk can arrange farm tours with Sang Lee Farms and curated wine-tasting programs with partner vineyards. For your inner growth, Southold's The Giving Room hosts in-season yoga and local sanghas lead guided meditation journeys. And then there’s our weekly performance series, including world-class music on the beach or at the pool, movies on our private beach, and more. If inspiration is a place, we're pretty sure we've found it.

Feed Your Soul

Our old world Piano Bar has become, for the foreseeable future, only a private space for rental only. It still is the perfect place to grab a craft cocktail and hire a musician for a performance of your favorite tunes.

Breathe it in

Take a breath & reconnect – you’ll find plenty of socially distanced options here, including yoga, meditation, nature walks, and bike rides.

We celebrate individuality with a culture of inclusion, and this extends to all of our guests, including those with disabilities. That’s why our hotel is ADA accessible and inviting—from our lobby, restaurant and common areas to our comfortable ADA Deluxe Rooms complete with ramps to a shared deck overlooking the Sound.
