We fell in love with Shelter Island when we first visited. It has the perfect mix of nature, wonderful food and outdoor activities. It is a short ferry ride from the Hamptons and Sag Harbor.
Jenna purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2013
Why Jenna chose Shelter Island Heights
The location of this home is perfect. It is down a quiet tree covered lane with ponds. We love being able to walk to Wades Beach and to the Nature Conservatory's Mashomack Preserve. The home has beautiful wood work and high vaulting ceilings. It is a perfect getaway with plenty of room for friends and family to join.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
We instantly loved the large grass lawn and pool, as well as the wrap around deck, which gives plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing. The Brazilian Walnut floors throughout the house and gorgeous.

Lovely getaway in a lovely home in Shelter Island, NY
My family and I spent a long weekend here and what a great choice! It’s only about a 2-hour drive for us from our home in NYC but we felt like were hundreds of miles away…Shelter Island is the perfect combination of rustic woodlands, rolling hills, and of course beautiful beaches. The local people, shops, cafes, and nature preserve made this quaint little island more charming than expected. Shelter Island has it all and is so unlike anywhere else I’ve visited in the region. Additionally, the gorgeous trees and plantings surrounding the house make it feel like you are in the Catskills! Unobstructed views of this pastoral and rustic landscape can be seen through each window in this home, especially the master-bedroom window. The photos online of this beautiful home do not do it justice. The house is kept in perfect condition and everything from the high-end appliances down to the bed sheets and towels are top quality. It was a pleasure to explore the island but was also a pleasure to just stay home, cook/bbq a delicious meal and relax with some good wine, good music, and soak in the tub. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
We'll be back !!
We live in Stockholm and we loved this house, it is a great place to relax and entertain.
We especially enjoyed the private feeling of the location; we couldn't see nor hear any neighbors from the house and just had large trees and green to look out at.
The pool is fantastic and the deck area is so nice to stay for hours for a quiet and relaxing time .
The kitchen is outfitted with everything you need and great quality items. Inside the house the decoration is very nicely done and feels open and light and all perfectly clean and at the same time feeling relaxed and comfortable.
You can walk to both the preserve and the beach from the house. We absolutely loved the rest of the island; long bicycle rides, tasty restaurants, lovely beaches and for the evenings, very nice bars !
We didn't want to leave and we will definitely be back. Thank you!
The home is within walking distance of Wades Beach and the Nature Conservatory's Mashomack preserve for hiking, etc. It is located very close to Shelter Island township, boat marina, etc. Shelter island is a beautiful island within a few minute ferry ride of the Hamptons and the North Shore wine region.
