A quaint, 181-year-old Victorian house immerses you in the ease of Shelter Island while offering updated accommodations.

The Diversions
A little retreat from the concrete jungle. Dotting the edge of Long Island, buoyed in the waters of Gardiners Bay, Shelter Island is an aptly named haven just 2.5 hours east of Manhattan.
Charm abounds, natural and man-made. Embodying the beauty of a sea-swept New England town, the island's 8,000 acres are best seen by foot or by boat. Hike the beaches to glimpse wildlife, stroll through a neighborhood of historic Victorian homes, or glide along the currents in a kayak.
Bring your appetite. After sunset, stop by a nearby eatery for dinner—look for plump oysters and scallops, fresh from local seafood markets.

The Digs
With pale yellow clapboards and prim white trim on the 181-year-old Victorian house, The Candlelite Inn's exterior could have come straight out of a picture from the turn of the century. Once you're past the wraparound porch—the creak of wicker furniture inviting leisurely relaxation—you'll find more contemporary comforts in the five guest rooms, each offering a private bath and queen-size pillow-top bed with soft linens. Rise and shine, ease into the day with breakfast and a cup of coffee in the bright sunshine, and fully explore the quiet pleasures of this peaceful island.

  • "[T]iny Shelter Island has for centuries served as a secluded getaway spot. Relaxed and barely developed, it has some nice beaches, protected coves great for boating and swimming, and an atmosphere unlike anything on the North or South forks."

    -- Frommer's
  • "Taking advantage of its hilltop elevation, Shelter Island Heights is the island's center of activity. Its Queen Anne, Victorian, and colonial-revival houses, stores, and inns show off embellished porches, scalloped shingles, and carved friezes."
