Physical Status



Peter’s Motel is located at 223 Flanders Rd., Riverhead, NY. Much of the property has been abandoned and is in disrepair. A chain-link fence, also in disrepair, surrounds the property. A faded motel sign marks the entrance. The motel may once have consisted of multiple one-story buildings and a two-story structure to the rear. A surviving frame building with brick veneer on the gable end facing that street and faux wood clapboard on other elevations provided multiple rooms with direct access from a covered walkway. An intriguing one-story stucco building with a Colonial revival doorway sits just east of the drive and may have served as the motel office.


Detailed History

Peter’s Motel was introduced into the Green Book in 1959.
