Recent Shelter Island reviews
"As the Fall arrives here in CO and winter is around the corner, we start to dream of summer and that has meant the Rose Cottage for the last 3 years. We so enjoy the location, the gardens, the beautiful decor. We feel so blessed to be able to return to such a comfortable home and know how responsive and kind the owners are, from attending to an internet snafu within minutes to having the best advise on what's happening in town and the wines to try. Walking to town, biking to the beach, and sitting in the shade to read, this is this perfect summer day. We're looking forward to summer 2016 already!"

"Our family enjoyed this quirky, rambling Shelter Island home. Comfortable outdoor space served as a focal point for family and extended-friend dinner gatherings, while the top-notch kitchen was stocked to the hilt with just about anything a serious cook might need. The house was quite spacious for six adults - two parents and our adult children, each accompanied by a guest. In addition, our Golden Retriever, Henry, found the large front porch and chasing of rabbits very much to his liking.
The house is located just a few minutes drive from the North Ferry; the location is peaceful and quiet. David was quite accommodating with the entire rental process and the home and its amenities were just as stated on the VRBO site.
This is our third visit to Shelter Island and it's a truly special place. We've enjoyed hiking in the gorgeous Mashomack Preserve, as well as the varied selection of wineries on the North Fork - we especially recommend Shinn Estate Vineyards and Anthony Nappa's The Winemaker Studio (think Anomaly Pinot Noir white wine!). The drive through the Hamptons out to Montauk is a half-day well spent. Bob's Fish Market on Shelter Island was a good source of fresh local seafood for home cooking and Noah's in Greenport served up some interesting and savory tapas. Vine Street Cafe, while quite expensive, was an extraordinary and memorable dinner. Hay Beach is a great little spot for relaxing and bocci ball. The star gazing from Rose Cottage on clear nights was awesome! Driving through the Forks, Sag Harbor and the Hamptons is a reminder that Long Island Forks region is stunningly beautiful."

"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."

"We loved the house! It was perfect for our family of 4; however, the house could have easily accommodated additional folks. The house was very clean and had everything that we needed - it was well stocked with towels and kitchen items. The outdoor shower was a big hit! We used the bikes to ride to Wades Beach most days - it's an easy ride even with our 8 and 12 year old children. Our family enjoyed the tennis courts and the community beach. David was very responsive during all aspects of the reservation process. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation on Shelter Island!"
