A charming Salt Hotels property full of old-fashioned charm, situated in a secluded Shelter Island neighborhood

The Chequit perfectly sums up life in Shelter Island, New York: simply charming. Its minimalist design, meticulous attention to detail and chic-meets-antique accents will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a (very stylish) time machine and been transported to a far simpler time. There’s only one thing on your to-do list here: taking it easy. And thanks to this low-key vibe, The Chequit will help you get the job done. Don’t take our word for it – just look at the glowing reviews from Condé Nast Traveler, Vogue, the New York Post, Travel & Leisure, The New York Times and Hamptons magazine.

But this branch of Salt Hotels doesn’t act alone. It gets some help in the form of the four-and-a-half mile island on which it sits, which has such little traffic that it doesn’t have – or need – stoplights. It’s also home to some of New York’s most stunning wildlife: The Mashomack Nature Preserve will feed your cravings for relaxation and outdoor adventure, year-round. So swing by, and lounge on a secluded beach and kayak the island’s wetlands in summer, while you can also head to Mitchell for ice-skating in the winter. Take it from the hotel: It’s these little things that count.
