About the Owner

My father was the swimming instructor on the island for 40 years and my mother was a local exhibited artist. This provided the opportunity for me to spend every summer on this wonderful island. Now a photographer and my husband a songwriter we continue to enjoy it's beauty and serenity.. Whether reading at the beach, biking, a trip to the ocean, enjoying the local theater or eating the local seafood, we continue to enjoy the carefree lifestyle of the island.

A lovely home base to enjoy the island.

From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The central location allowed us to get around without a car. There are beaches, restaurants, and Farm stands, and Sylvester manor are all short bikes away.

Kristen was a wonderful host, providing everything we needed for an extended working vacation. The WiFi accommodated three people online, the space layout provided both privacy and areas to relax together, and the outdoor shower was such a treat.

All in all we loved our time at this home and are looking forward to returning.

Great Location

The house is located just off of 114, the main road from north to south across the island and which takes you to the north and south ferries. It is also just a few minutes from the Mashomack Preserve, which is a great place for walking/hiking. We definitely would stay at this house again.

Lovely stay on beautiful, relaxing Shelter Island

This past summer, we stayed on Shelter Island for a month and were incredibly excited for a return over a long weekend. Kirsten's cottage was just perfect. It was cute, comfortable, and well stocked for our family. With restaurants right nearby (we heartily recommend lobster takeout from Commander Cody's, less than a half mile away), and just about everything on the island a short drive away, we had everything we needed. We hope to return sometime soon.

Ideal Shelter Island Cottage

Just spent a great week at Kirsten’s Cottage and it was the ideal base for a relaxing week on Shelter Island.
The cottage was exactly as described. A beachy, cozy cottage - compact, but with plenty of space for four adults. The futon was comfortable, as were the two bedrooms. Each room is decorated with furniture that adds to the cottage’s welcoming atmosphere. The bonus beach towels, umbrella, and chairs were a thoughtful touch. And, a trip to the beach, ice cream shop, or local restaurant, was barely 5 minutes away.
Check in and out was a breeze. Off street parking was convenient.
We really enjoyed our time at the cottage!

Fantastic Island Getaway

Shelter Island was an important place to me growing up, and being able to stay on the island in a place like this took me right back. Absolutely fantastic property and fantastic communication from the property owners. Seamless check in and immediate answers to any questions or concerns. Will definitely stay again!

Lovely cottage in the middle of the island

We had a perfect stay. Just the two of us, so we had lots of room to spread out in this tidy small cottage in the middle of Shelter Island. The owner was a pleasure to correspond with. The house is well appointed and comfortable. Kayak & bike rental, and the island's supermarket are nearby, as is nearly anything else you'd need to make a stay on Shelter Island perfect.
