Shelter Island Heights bungalow description

July and August is completely booked. Consider September as it is usually the best weather of the year, and the water is still very warm. Book now to enjoy this wonderful property. Price for September is $1950 per week. Everyone who has seen this location in person has booked it immediately.

Waterfront cottage setting in a premium location on Shelter Island located a few steps from shops in village on north side of Shelter Island in walking distance to ferry/train to New York City. It is not located on Route 114. You turn off Route 114 down what looks like a gravel driveway, but is really a quiet lane that runs along Chase Creek. Look behind you as you enter the driveway and there are currently baby ospreys in a nest on top of a large tree.

You will see the cottage as you walk down the lane. This home is very close to the water. With many windows to enjoy the view, it is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and warm fabrics.The twin couches in the spacious living room provide great seating to watch films via Netflix or on the DVD player, or (complimentary wireless internet service/ cable tv is provided). You will probably want to spend the most time on the screened porch where there is plenty of room to socialize. Next to the porch, stretched between two large oak trees, is a comfortable hammock. You can watch the birds and snooze. After the sun goes down, you can see the sparkle of lights in the Heights reflected in the water.

The Master bedroom has a queen-size bed with views of Chase Creek, The second bedroom has two twin beds. The Bath has a shower and tub combination. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned although it is rare to need to use the air conditioning because of the breezy location.

The modern kitchen has a cozy table to sit and talk and eat snacks by the windows.

There is an out-building arranged as an additional water view room with screens, a card table and chairs, providing additional space to socialize or a place to focus in case you have to check in with the office.The wireless internet works very well all over the property, so you can sit by the water in the adirondack chairs and still be connected to the outside world.

The private yard on the water side of the home has plenty of room to play catch, horseshoes and badminton.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      The unique feature of this home is the spectacular, restful location, shaded from the summer sun by large oak trees. Take a very short walk into the village. You don't have to drive to get breakfast, coffee, wine or liquor, dinner or entertainment. The remarkable views and ability to watch Ospreys and Kingfishers feed close up throughout the day attracts nature lovers and busy professionals who relax and enjoy the serene setting. It's so easy and comfortable, you won't want to leave! Take a book with you to read in the Pawley's Island hammock, and let the breeze lull you to sleep.

                      When you get up in the morning for Kona coffee or Irish tea, sit on the screened porch and view the woodpeckers, wrens and chickadees putting on a show for you. Watch the morning unfold across Chase Creek. The tide is always changing, the sky is always changing, allowing you to enjoy nature's endless variety. Lie flat on the dock and you can see minnows and crabs scurrying around on the bottom of the pristine waters of Chase Creek. Fish for Snappers and Porgies off the dock in the late afternoon. Sit in the waterside Adirondack chairs in the evening with a glass of wine or a cocktail and watch the sun set.

                      Many people will bicycle around the Shelter Island in the course of a week, eat at the great restaurants, enjoy the various beaches, get ice cream, and spend quality time with the family on this special island. If you like to barbecue, there is a Weber kettle grill ready for your use. If you like to write, or want to play cards with friends, the out-building has been set up as a great hideaway with a water view, and screen doors let the refreshing breeze keep you cool.
