The Rams Head Inn

108 S Ram Island Dr, Shelter Island Heights, NY


Sitting atop a hillside, on an island off an island, The Rams Head Inn is known as a chic yet historic and inviting seaside getaway. With a relaxing atmosphere, gracious country accommodations, quality dining, and warm hospitality, we can’t imagine a better place to enjoy The 24 Hour Plays in summertime style this month!
