This place is a gem. The rooms are cozy and clean, but the best places to savor the property are the screened porch, the hammock, the Adirondack chairs facing the water, and dining in the converted garage with a view of the creek. We loved having access to the kayak and the grill, our kids loved the swing, and we rented bikes practically next door. Birders will love seeing ospreys that nest all over the island, the egrets gracing the creek, and all variety of smaller birds congregating at the feeders. The owner was gracious and exceedingly helpful; during our stay he responded promptly to our Qs about the property and places to visit on the island. I would definitely look into staying here again on our next visit to Shelter Island.
