I was visiting the Hamptons from Holland and discovered the magical Heights on Shelter Island with my Dad in December 1998. I fell in love with the charm and peacefulness of the Island and decided to stay with my Newfoundland Dog .
I`m lucky and grateful to be here !
Yvonne V. Wibbe purchased this house in 1999
No place like Shelter Island !
Serene,magical and just beautiful !
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
On the East End of Long Island ,NY located between the South Fork (Hamptons) and the North Fork you will find the enchanting small island called Shelter Island.
A 3 minutes ferry ride from the South side of the Island separates Shelter Island from the posh and glamorous Hamptons . Long Island`s and possibly the country`s -most exclusive summer community .
A 12 minute ferry ride separates Shelter Island from the North Fork with its splendid vineyards and wineries,open land and rustic farm stands.
Eden Roc, offering breathtaking water views over Rainbow Park is located in an historic enclave called the ' Heights ' .With an easy walk to the Private Beach Club that is for Heights residents only, you can have a morning swim or enjoy sunsets . The Private Beach Club has a life guard on duty and offers BBQ nights, ice ccream socials, swim races, dinner dance, kids`movie nights, cook outs....etc.
Quaint old towns like Sag Harbor, East Hampton, Greenport are less than 12 miles away.
You can walk from the house to the North Ferry that will take you over to Greenport ,where the Hampton Jitney luxury bus takes you directly into NYC in only 2 hours...
There are plenty restaurants on the island with outdoor dining and beautiful views. Here is a list of restaurants where you can walk to from the house.
