Good6.0
The resort is lovely and we love Shelter Island. HOWEVER, there are apparently resort fees and parking fees of about $60 per day which are collected directly by the resort. We were not notified by the resort about these charges when we checked in, so they were an unpleasant surprise on my credit card statement...
