Recent Shelter Island reviews
Wonderful place to stay, walk to Greenport
"Third time we've used the gatehouse - easily accommodates 4 - 6 people for 7 days. 2 bedrooms upstairs with a futon downstairs. We had 2 parents and 3 young adults (kids). We all used the outdoor shower - why would anyone not want to?!?! Kitchen was adequate, the house was super clean, beds comfortable. You can walk across the lawn to the beach, walk or bike into Greenport. Great location - we brought a kayak, launched it from the beach, used it to paddle around the Cove and across the channel to Shelter Island. Pat is always so accommodating. Will definitely stay here again."

"The Owners of the House could not have been nicer and easier to plan our trip. Communications was easy by all means via cell, email or USPS mail. My family has been getting together for an annual Family Get-Away for 25 years. The House is the best. The very large dining table allowed my entire family to sit around to talk, eat and share fellowship. The living room set up with the two couches, two sitting chairs and small round table allowed everyone to gather together in the same area but be able to sit in small groups and catch up with stories since our last gathering last year. The beds and bedrooms were comfortable and restful. The outdoor under cover deck was as perfect as perfect can be. To be able to enjoy the outdoors and to be protected from the direct sun was very important to all. However, we also enjoyed being able to sit on the lower outdoor deck which was protected by a large shade tree. The heated indoor swim pool was a treat that was the best. For us, our group arrived by boat. We did not have a car. The floating dock and tie off bulkhead with deep water was perfect for us. The house is in easy walking distance to the beach. Everyone was sad to leave on Sunday. For anyone considering Shelter Island, the peacefulness and house are the best.
Thank you, The Avedesian Family, Rhode Island & Maryland."

"My husband and I and our two little dogs spent a week at Susan's home and it was just what we needed. The house is fully stocked, the backyard is massive (and closed in for the pups to run wild) and the location is close to the shops and restaurants and in walking distance to beautiful sunset beach where we enjoyed champagne while we watched the sun go down on several evenings. Easy ferry to either Greenport or Sag Harbor for day trips. The owner was very accommodating prior to our stay and in fact when we had a hot water issue (likely due to the house not being used for a couple weeks) she had it fixed the very next day. We really had a lovely time!"

"We had a great time staying here in the middle of July 2015. Our family (8 adults, one baby, one small dog) really enjoyed the house. The open lay-out of the upstairs made for great time cooking dinners and socializing. We cooked at the house most nights and the kitchen worked well. The pool is even better in person than it looks online. My brother, who stayed in the cottage, loved "having his own place." The owner, Ian, is also very helpful and responsive, and we didn't have any issues."
