Destination / Wish You Were Here

The Chequit, Shelter Island

Shelter Island is the ‘un-Hamptons’ getaway that takes you off the grid in the best possible way. With an overnight bag and a new book in hand I travelled the eastbound stretch of highway no more than 100 miles from New York City. A short ferry ride later and I’d arrived at my destination – The Chequit, a boutique hotel that is as much a chic seaside sanctuary as it is a laidback summer refuge.
