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."

"Just back from two glorious weeks. The house sits on a beautiful piece of property with a spectacular view. Perfect spot to drop your paddleboard or kayak and just spend the day on the Sound. There was no reason to leave. Everything we needed was there for us to have a beautiful vacation. The owners were super to work with. Thanks - until next year!"

"Our seven night stay at Pat Nelson's cottage was absolutely fantastic. A perfect combination of beach and country are all on this seven acre paradise. Pat is the pefect host , and offers his kayaks, charcoal grills , and many other things to make your stay enjoyable.
I'd give TEN stars if possible."
