Star Island Corp. has been awarded a $25,000 grant by the Samuel P. Hunt Foundation to be used for improvements to the historic Oceanic Hotel and Cottage A, and another $25,000 grant from the John McIninch Foundation to support Cottage A renovations.


Star Island is one of the rocky, wind-swept Isles of Shoals, located off the coast of Rye, New Hampshire. For over 100 years, summers here have provided individuals and families with a welcome respite from their busy mainland lives.

Star Island Corporation is a nonprofit organization which maintains the island and its facilities and provides hospitality services for visitors.
