Activities: Walk two minutes down the lane to your private dock. Enjoy the wildlife, go for a kayak in the beautiful inlet or just sit and relax and work on your tan or watch sunset. Head to Salt waterfront bar and grill right down the road or into town, only 5 minutes away, for the best coffee at Stars Cafe, an addictive lobster roll or flat pizza at Redding's Market or a top quality gourmet meal at Island House or Vine St. Pick up toys and beach items at the Deering Harbor department store, shop the beautiful boutiques on Grand St. or head over to Marika's to find a treasure at her eclectic antique store.

Reconnect with nature in the Mashomack Preserve, a 2,100-acre wonderland with ten miles of coastline, creeks, forests, salt marshes and quiet meadows owned by the Nature Conservancy. Hit the hiking trails for quick and easy (1.5 miles) or lengthy and rigorous (11 miles) walk. Other outdoor activities include fishing, golf, tennis, biking, and sailing. You'll find information about where to go for what in a folder at the house or you can just ask one of the many friendly people you will come upon during your stay.

                                                              This home is absolutely lovely, and I highly recommend it for your family.

                                                              Kate was warm, friendly, and helpful, and even left a thoughtful welcome basket on the kitchen counter for us! Her home is beautiful and immaculate, and the lay out was perfect for our family. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, and open to the family room- a great gathering spot for us.

                                                              Memorial day weekend weather was a bit chilly and rainy for swimming in the gorgeous pool, but we did relax around it, catching up, dozing and reading.

                                                              I hope to be back next year! Joan Ankner

                                                              Thrilled you enjoyed the property so much and were able to spend a special time with your family there. It was a delight having you as guests and we very much look forward to your return. The house was left in perfect condition. Thank you for that and for selecting Stylish Shelter!!

                                                              Just Book IT - Leave Worries Behind

                                                              Robin K.Cherry Hill, NJ

                                                              This location on Shelter Island is fabulous! My family of (6) adults and (3) children under the age of (5) years old had a great time. I’ve already referred this home to two sets of friends. Whether you live in the NYC area or not getting to Shelter Island is easy by plane or a lovely drive. Taking a quick (15) minute ferry ride by car gets you to a tranquil island that has everything you need. A small quaint town, biking, hiking, boating, swimming, kayaking and relaxing. This home's design and amenities never quit. If you are a chef/cook or hate cooking this home delivers. It is big enough for large family gatherings around a huge wood burning fireplace or outside around the pool. Eating inside or out is easy breezy. If it rains, no worries lots of inside activities i.e. reading, games, puzzles, baking or just watching TV or listening to music as there is a spot for everyone. Getting out to a beach or the quick ride on the ferry to the town of Greenport for shopping, meandering and yummy restaurants was a delight. A perfect home for a couple, girls weekend, bridle gathering, family vacation and much much more. Leave your worries at home and just book it!!! The owners deliver impeccable assistance, support and guidance to make your visit worth every penny!! We all loved every minute of our Mother's Day week away.

                                                              Peaceful getaway

                                                              We had such a lovely stay in Shelter Island, the house was everything we hoped for, so close to the beach and the salt water pool was such a treat. The house had all the modern touches we needed washer dryer, great central ac and ample and comfortable for our family of 5 and guests. Kate's recommendations in the area were spot on and we felt very well taken care of plus she was extremely responsive with any questions or needs we had and we greatly appreciated that. It was our first time out to Shelter and we think we may make it a yearly tradition. We put together 3 jigsaw puzzles and took naps!!! Was such a lovely vacation from our busy city life.

                                                              Relaxing comfortable stay

                                                              Our family had a terrific fall week. The kitchen is well equipped and big. The bedrooms are nicely situated for privacy. Having two living spaces to spread out in was perfect on the colder days. Nice dock for sunset viewing and lounging. Wish we could have been there in the summer to use the pool. The yard is spacious. Loved our stay!

                                                              Absolute perfection

                                                              Where to begin?! We spent a blissful two weeks at this incredible home, cooking, swimming and just totally decompressing. The house is very spacious with a perfected layout, impeccably and tastefully appointed and just exudes easy, clean, luxurious comfort, down to the linens and towels! We were most often gathering in the fabulous chef's kitchen, savoring all it had to offer. The porch was a perfect spot for getting out of the sun and reading very comfortably. The pool was pristine and the perfect temperature and the pool area had super comfy chairs all on a stone that never became too hot (esp important for my 2 year old!). Kate is a gem and a pleasure to work with since the very first communication. She adds an extra special touch to your entire experience, from lovely welcome treats, to thorough island information, restaurants, shopping, activities, you name it, in addition to her availability to respond to questions that came up during our stay. Perfect home, perfect host, perfect island - we will absolutely return!

                                                              nathalie, it was a pleasure to host you and your family at our property. i am thrilled that you had such a wonderful vacation. you were a delightful guest and i look forward to your return.

                                                              Wonderful oasis

                                                              This house boast a wonderful pool in a beautiful setting as well as a dock on a serene inlet. We loved kayaking in the creek and beyond. The house itself is so tastefully appointed in each and every room and yet it's comfortable and not imposing. Our family enjoyed gathering around the island in the jaw-dropping chef's kitchen and around the table for meals and board games. There were so many fabulous places to curl up and read. It's hard to know whether the porch bed, the dock chaises, the pool chaises, the lounge in the upstairs family room or the coaches in the downstairs gathering room provided the best reading spot. But certainly everyone had their own favorite spot to curl up and relax -- in addition to their own spacious bedroom. We had a great time taking the bikes out to Ram Island, Shell Beach and Hay Beach and, of course, Wade's Beach. The house was well-situated so that we could walk to the Tuck Shop for ice cream, to the Heights for dinner and into town as well. We'd be thrilled to stay here again and would not change a thing. It was an ideal place for a family vacation.

                                                              We are so thrilled that you loved the house and property and that your family had a great vacation there. I am especially glad you appreciated and took advantage of the big kitchen and all of the cozy spots for reading and relaxing!! We look forward to your return!!


                                                              Shelter Island, NY, USA

                                                              Shelter Island is an ideal vacation destination, away from it and yet close the the happenings of the Hamptons.

Enjoy sunset at one of the many quiet beaches, a quaint little pub or head to Crescent Beach for a cocktail among the jet set at Andre Balaz's Sunset Beach restaurant. You needn’t leave the island but if you choose to, Greenport and Sag Harbor are just a ferry ride away. Venture a little further and explore the north fork, known for its quaint towns, vineyards and farmers markets, or head to the south fork for the hottest fashion stores and restaurants, movie theaters, ocean beaches, and fish markets. Other Activities: Going for walks on the beach, napping by the pool, reading by the fire, watching a movie on the HD tv, cooking a wonderful meal to enjoy with friends and family, coffee at stars cafe, dining at one of the many great food purveyors, watching sunset from your private dock or Sunset Bar and Grill, antiquing at Marika's or Beall and Bell, shopping at local boutiques, going to vineyards for wine tastings, golf at nearby public course, shopping in greenport, movies in Sag Harbor, biking around the island, and relaxing in the sun by the pool.
