The Guest House is available for weekends or longer stays during the off-season, beginning September 7, 2014 through June 20, 2015. Photos above.

The 600 square foot, queen bedroom, 1 bath guest house is now available during the off-season ....great for autumn weekends away. With interior finishings in keeping with the main house, this private, second floor, loft-like, light-filled apartment has it's own access driveway and large, southern facing deck over the treetops. With Wifi, iPod Dock, Flat Screen TV, washer/dryer, Daybed, kitchen (no d/w), and access to large outdoor shower.

The main house is a spacious, contemporary and light-filled home, located in a quiet, safe, beach community, bordering the 2000+ acre Mashomack Wildlife Preserve. Situated on 1-1/2 acres, with a 5 minute walk to a private association beach and small marina, the property features a 1/4 acre bamboo grove, pond, partial waterview of the bay, wildflower meadow, and mature hardwood, flowering, holly, apple and pear trees.

The 3 bedroom, 3 bath house is 2200 square feet with an additional 500 square feet of porches. Interior and exterior finishes echo the oak and cedar trees found on the property, while bamboo kitchen cabinetry and paneling, reed glass interior doors and vertically striated tiles mimic the bamboo groves seen through the windows.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I have had the privilege of spending time on this beautiful island since 1986. Only 2 1/2 hours from New York City and we still leave the keys in the car and the house doors unlocked! Though my career is commercial photography, I have always had a passion for designing and building homes - ever since my youth in New England, building every kind of fort or treehouse imaginable. This property is my third on the island - the first being a 1908 farmhouse and the second an 1890 Victorian in the Heights, which was successfully rented through VRBO for several seasons. This home and property were completely rebuilt from 2008 - 2011 .

                      Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
                      As a photographer and artist, I am sensitive to the way light moves around a house, and how the home is sited on the land. This home is deceiving - modest in appearance as you wind up the tree-lined, gravel drive - and unveils itself only upon entering, with a good vibe about the house and property. A friend has called the house's style 'pacific northwest meets mid-century modern meets zen'. That seems to sum it up - it's anything but cookie-cutter.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Contrasts: The house is surrounded by mature trees, and feels like it's in a country setting. Yet a secluded bay beach is a 5 minute walk away, with a peak of water from the living and dining rooms. The land is private, yet open. The house spacious, with good-sized, well-proportioned rooms, yet one doesn't get lost in the caverns of contemporary great rooms. An eclectic mix of comfortable furnishings, from antique to modern, low to high-end....neat but not precious. Closets, dressers, and bathroom cabinets are empty, ready for your belongings. Comfortable beds, with tempurpedic mattresses or toppers and a selection of different sleeping pillows from down to foam, firm to soft.
