Set in a former US Coast Guard lifeboat station dating back to the early 1900s, the property lies wholly in Ocean Bay Park, only five miles from Fire Island Lighthouse and nine miles from Captree State Park. Under new ownership starting in the Summer of 2020, The Fire Island Beach House will become THE place to be in Fire Island while cutting distance and travel time down by 50% for those commuting from NYC to the Hamptons in search of quality accommodations, unmatched service, quality food and a great scene.

The FIBH boasts four separate buildings with differing room types. The Watchtower, aptly named with its peaked spire formerly used to search for wayward vessels, hosts 19 of the property’s 41 rooms. Every single room in the Watchtower will be completely renovated for the 2020 season. Available rooms in the Watchtower include Standard Kings and Queens as well as Double Queens and Suites. Every room in the Watchtower features flat-screen televisions, iPhone docking stations and private terraces. The Watchtower has something to offer everyone with either a view of the lively pool scene at the FIBH or a commanding view of the Atlantic Ocean and the beach at Ocean Bay Park.

The Beach Lodge and Boathouse are home to nine suites with private outdoor terraces and large, renovated King beds for extended stays on the island. The property also boasts four Bungalows that can accommodate up to eight people in each. These Bungalows offer full kitchens, separate bedrooms, living space and private decks with outdoor showers. Lastly, the Commodore Building offers the remaining rooms on the property. In addition to the rooms, the Commodore features the main lobby, grab and go food and beverage perfect for the beach, the boutique at the FIBH and a cafe station. 

The pool at the FIBH is accompanied by the the newly refurbished FIBH Grille serving a fresh, light and bright menu that will keep the most discerning bar and poolgoers happy. Bar, patio and poolside dining and beverage service is available. New for 2020 also includes the opportunity to enjoy our pool, without being a hotel guest, by attaining a Resort Pass. 

Also new for 2020 is the Lounge on the South Lawn. The artificially turfed lawn will feature chaise lounges, fire pits, Adirondack chairs and outdoor sofas to offer yet another spot to chill, imbibe and mingle. For a quick bite, visit the food truck at the South Lawn to curb your cravings. All of this only steps away from the Atlantic Ocean and some of the best beaches in all of Long Island.

These new features will make the Fire Island Beach House the spot to be for Summer 2020 and beyond!
