Shelter Island Homes For Sale And Real Estate

Area Description

Shelter Island, cradled between the North and South Fork, is only accessible by boat.


The North Ferry travels between Greenport and Shelter Island, and the South Ferry travels between Shelter Island and Sag Harbor.


The jewel of Shelter Island is considered to be Mashomack Preserve. Mashomack Preserve, maintained by The Nature Conservancy, is 2,039 acres of land consisting and 22 miles of scenic hiking trails, wildlife, more than 200 bird species and amazing views of the Peconic, Shelter Island, and Gardener’s bays.


Although there are about 2,400 permanent residents on Shelter Island, that number swells in the summer when the second-home owners are in town. Those part-time residents come to enjoy the gorgeous weather, summer activities such as golf, boating, swimming, hiking, and everything else Shelter Island has to offer.


And if they’re looking for a day out, Greenport and Sag Harbor are only a ten minute ferry ride away.
