Escape to your dream getaway on Thimble Island, just a stone’s throw away from the mainland and a mere 14 miles from the Hamptons! Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind as you step into your own 1.04-acre patch of paradise in the legendary Thimble Islands. This idyllic retreat is offered fully furnished and includes 2 acres of deeded adjacent shellfish beds for added enjoyment.

Recently updated with a new roof, seawall, expanded grassy yard, irrigation system, pink granite wall, and freshly painted exterior, this island oasis offers modern comforts in a serene setting. Accessible from charming Stony Creek and just a short drive from the dock to I-95, you’ll feel worlds away on Beldens Island.

Indulge in enchanting views of Long Island Sound and the tranquil archipelago coastline, once frequented by pirates. From the private dock and sandy beach, you’ll discover indigenous pink granite stone walls, a lush green lawn with irrigation, and perfectly placed shade trees.

Step back in time as you enter the well-preserved circa 1912 7-room cottage, featuring vintage hardwood floors and wainscoted walls and ceilings that exude maritime charm. The country kitchen is equipped with a 4-burner gas stove with griddle, refrigerator, coal stove, and butler’s pantry, while an outdoor built-in gas grill makes summer BBQs a breeze.

Dine in the spacious combined dining/living room anchored by a stone fireplace, with sparkling water reflections from surrounding windows creating a magical ambiance. Relax and take in spectacular sunsets and 360-degree views from the expansive wrap-around covered porches, before cozying up by another stone fireplace in the south-facing living room.

Upstairs, four sizable bedrooms await, serviced by two full bathrooms, one on each floor. The home is generator-ready and equipped with a solar system for electricity consumption, with city water connected for added convenience. A large shed provides additional storage space.

This Thimble Island retreat offers easy boating access with private watercraft or Thimble Island water taxi, as well as proximity to Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club. Situated between Boston and New York, with easy access to Manhattan via nearby Amtrak and Metro-North stations, and Tweed New Haven Airport, this private island paradise also presents a tremendous opportunity for rental income. Experience the good vibes of coastal living on the tides at your very own Thimble Island retreat!
