Property description

Enjoy your morning coffee or evening dinner on our victorian porch overlooking tranquil Menantic Creek. It is so quiet here that sometimes a manmade sound cannot be heard. Stargazing at night from our deck/dock is unbelievable. A wonderful place to kayak (we have a 2 seater). House has 3 levels. It has 2 full bedrooms, one on top floor and one on lower level, both with water views. The master suite (top level) has a shower, Jacuzzi tub, queen size bed, walk in closet, sitting area and tv. The lower bedroom has a queen bed, living area with tv, dining table, bathroom & laundry room and opens up to a waterfront patio. These two bedrooms are separated by the middle floor which makes each very private and is great for two couples. The middle floor has kitchen (with everything you will need), dining area, living room with TV, DVD player and stereo and what we call the 'inside porch' which is overlooking the creek and is all windows. Connected to this by sliding glass doors is the victorian porch and gazebo. The gazebo has a dining table. After a day of kayaking or lounging at the beach, there is also an outside shower. Beach chairs, umbrella, towels are all included.

Shelter Island is a quaint, quiet community on an island that is accessible only by ferry. It is situated between the north and south forks of Long Island. One third of the island is a nature preserve, great for hiking. A short drive to ocean beaches in the Hamptons & wineries on the north fork. Quiet and relaxing, not even a single street light on the island, Shelter Island is the place to get away from it all.
