One of the most beautiful villas, modeled in the style of those in the South of France, the La Maison Blanche in Shelter Island (11 Stearns Point Road, Shelter Island Heights NY) features two gravel courts out front in addition to a romantic small pool.
There are eight guestrooms available at one time, and each is furnished with light wood floors and luxurious amenities that include Polo robs.
If you’d like to get a little exercise in with your special someone, the inn has six complimentary bikes and can pack up a picnic basket of pastries from the on-site bakery.
Really, the main attraction is the seclusion of the spot. There is virtually no traffic or really even any cars on Shelter Island. It’s also recommended to take a tour of the stunning Shell Beach while in the area.
In addition to the gorgeous views on the island, the in-house entertainment and cuisine is also unparalleled. Chef Charles Le Tous prepares classic French food including traditional escargot. There are other fine dining options available in the neighboring Crescent Beach and Sunset Beach.
Rates range between $275-$595. For more info, check out maisonblanchehotel.com
