YOU SAY HOTEL, I SAY BOATEL

The hamlet of Southold on the North Fork of Long Island is now home to The Shoals, a hybrid “boatel” overlooking Peconic Bay and Shelter Island that features 20 dockside hotel suites and 20 boat slips, making it accessible by both land and sea. Designed by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen, the cedar shingle exterior features clean lines reminiscent of New England modernism, with two floors of guest suites offering a view of the bay and the marina. The apartment-style accommodations, designed for an extended stay, each come with a bespoke kitchenette with breakfast nook; open concept living space; private terrace or balcony; and bathroom with glass walk-in shower and Malin + Goetz bath products. Memorable moments at the dock include yoga classes, picnics, bonfires, sunset drinks and stargazing. A bonus for oyster lovers: The Little Ram Oyster Company, a local woman-owned business, runs a robust oyster program on the property. Seasonal rates for suites start at $499; Boat Slips from $100/night (vessels up to 24ft); $5 per foot/night (nessels 25 feet to 40 feet). 631-765-5121, www.theshoalsnorthfork.com
