    Sweet and spotless

    Flawlessly maintained. Owners were very welcoming— even gave us home-grown vegetables to grill! Nice property and good location on the island.

    Shelter Island Cottage

    The cottage was perfect for our small family of three. The owners made sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including fresh linens and beach towels, and we appreciated the reverse-osmosis filtered water, Weber gas grill, coffee grinder, and family board games. We also spotted lots of bunnies, chipmunks, geese, and deer on the property. We would happily stay here again.

    5/5 Excellent

    Cottage at Turtle Pond

    This cottage was great and as advertised. Very clean and very charming. We will stay there again.

    5/5 Excellent

    Relaxing and wonderful week

    My husband and I had a lovely time in Jon and Penny's cottage. We were able to relax and write and also enjoy all of the beautiful beaches and nature that Shelter Island has to offer. The cottage was peaceful, private, and clean. We loved the dining room with all of the windows looking out onto the trees . Jon made sure we had everything we needed but gave us lots of space. It's also great to be renting from year round Shelter Island residents. We hope to come back!

    5/5 Excellent

    cottage at turtle pond

    The owners were gracious and gave us good information about the island as well as beaches nearby. The cottage was pristine. A pond is on the premises and we spent time watching the geese and turtles there. It was located off a quiet road. All the appliances, furniture, beds and amenities were exceptional. We especially enjoyed the enclosed dining area. I would highly recommend this cozy home.
