Sweetest House, Kindest Landlady

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful experience. I recommend this house to anyone who loves charm, history, and wonderful cozy casual chic.

Everything was as represented on the website. Adorable house well located in the "center" of sleepy Shelter Island. The porch overlooks a park and the harbor. The old fashioned pharmacy across the street, was great for supplies, the morning paper, and a counter lunch or breakfast. A charming inn is across the road as well which was good for lunches and dinners with a view of the harbor. Also walking distance on the other side of the park there's another settlement with restaurants and shops.

My landlady is the most considerate person I've ever encountered. On my arrival she had laid the table, stocked the fridge with salmon and chowder and desserts. The bedrooms are all charming and comfortable. The living room/dining room area is as comfortable as can be. The landlady anticipates one's every need and goes beyond the beyond to make her tenants happy.

If you are looking for a pretty island away from the sometimes frantic Hamptons scene, you will love this. Tennis and golf are nearby. Swimming can be had at the sweet little beach club down by the ferry landing. I recommend bringing a car to explore some the islands other charms, and to breeze quickly across on the ferry to visit Greenport on the North Fork or the wonderful busier village of Sag Harbor just north of the Hamptons
