We visit the Ramshead Inn regularly. It's a beautiful inn, private and quiet and elegant. Great food, and a nice bar, too. You can't go wrong. You can sit out on the adirondack chairs before dinner, or if you go during the holidays hang out by the fire. The decor is beautiful as well.

The Rams Head Inn is a gorgeous vintage inn that sits up on a rise overlooking the water. The property is well landscaped with great views. We had a two bedroom suite which really was only two adjoining rooms. No living space in between. However, there is a really nice roof top terrace overlooking the grounds. There are no tv's...

What a great place for dining out! Attentive staff, witty hostess, gracious but unpretentious atmosphere, delicious food. Well-cared-for inn with beautiful lawns (terrace dining!) and wonderul water view and grand trees. Wine list includes the best of Long Island vineyards. Full separate bar that offers occasional live entertainment, like jazz with a vocalist the evening we were there.

Was given wrong information by different people. (Mathew was great). Booked it purposely to include a night of music, and was told there would be. Wrong!! Was never told restaurant in hotel was closed Tuesday and Wednesday, as were half the island restaurants. We ate dinner the only night that the restaurant was open, and heard complaints. We did not...

Stayed for lunch and then into the afternoon but didn't stay overnight so not sure what the rooms are like. But it was wonderful. The staff were charming, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and the setting is beautiful. We had lunch on the terrace and then hung out in the gardens and on the small but very cute...

The shampoo and products were lovely. My room was very comfortable. I slept well. The staff were very friendly and made us lovely drinks. The view is really pretty. Stayed on very cold weekend; the coldest on record. Nice fireplaces. Would be excellent to have a kettle, tea and coffee, hot chocolate and marshmallows in the rooms. Also some reading...

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad you were so comfortable inside as the weekend arctic blast sent the outside temperatures to a chilly -4. Certainly, having the fireplaces lit helped to warm the spirits. I will also take your advice and add some reading material to the bedrooms. It is a very nice idea and...

We liked the ambience in the room despite that fact that it was much too small. The private bathroom was uninviting. We didn't sample any restaurants since we are kosher, but the Ram's Head Inn's restaurant was always hopping.

We knew it was billed as a bed and breakfast so we didn't expect large rooms, but the room was tiny with only a double bed. The shower floor was in disrepair and I needed shoes to use it. The staff was friendly and helpful as they could be. There is pleasant rock music played in the bar on Tuesday...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate our guest's input. I would have hoped that you had spoken to us while you were at the Inn, but I cannot find any reference to that in the front desk or maintenance book. This would have allowed us to know which bathroom needed attention and take...
