So there are these two days coming up.

They comprise the very end of each week.

We guess that, together, you could call them “the week-end.”

And these week-ends now require your presence, with another person, at The Chequit, an idyllic, 140-year-old-plus inn that’s pretty much brand-new, now reopen on Shelter Island.

Let’s get to the need-to-knows and send you on your way: first, you have to get there by ferry, which is kind of delightful. Second, there’s a restaurant and a surf shop coming in June. The restaurant’s called Red Maple, a local-produce and small-plates kind of operation run by a vet of a couple of David Burke restaurants.

Now, on to the tour. We wish we could find a different way to put this, but what you’re about to witness can only be described as porch porn. And it’s... it’s pretty graphic. Just look at this place.
