The History




A Timeless Shelter Island Classic

Nestled under a canopy of old-growth oak trees and skirted by a lawn dotted with Adirondack chairs, the Pridwin feels like a retreat from a lost era—and that's because it is. Back in the 1920s, it was considered a folly; not quite as large in its size compared to the other grand resorts that originated on Shelter Island. Now, it's the last grand resort to remain. For nearly 100 summers, the resort has played host to cocktail parties, cookouts, Fourth of July celebrations, and soirées of all sizes, each set before the sparkling waters of Crescent Beach. It's the last of its kind, and a stalwart of the American pursuit of happiness.
Named after the shield (“Prid’win”) of the legendary Celtic hero, King Arthur, the Pridwin Hotel was built from 1924 to 1926 by an English concern named the Queens Company Ltd. After the Queens Company Ltd. ran out of money and defaulted on their payments, Francis Myers, one of the building contractors, acquired the property. He completed construction and opened for business in 1927, operating the business until his death in 1947.
Byron Nurse, who had been a former manager of the Biltmore Hotel in New York City, purchased the Pridwin and operated it until his death in 1951. His spouse, Lorraine Nurse, inherited the property and together with William Fraser, operated the hotel until it was purchased by the Frost, Mobius and Petry families in 1961.
Frederick and Mildred Frost had been guests of the hotel since 1930. They learned it was for sale while they were vacationing one Labor Day with their daughter and son-in-law (Richard Petry). The Petry’s continue to operate the Pridwin Hotel to this day.
