This beautifully appointed property is comfortable, private and within close walking distance of Greenport's best restaurants as well as Mitchell Park, the marina and the Shelter Island Ferry. A grocery store and several independent farm stands are also around the corner from the house, which is situated behind the library in historic Greenport.
Isabel, our host, was warm and extremely accommodating. She was generous with information about Greenport and the surrounding area, but did not infringe on our privacy whatsoever. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome basket containing breakfast pastries, coffee and a map.
Although my boyfriend and I rented the house on our own, there is more than enough space to comfortably accommodate another couple.
The outdoor space is ample and lends itself to al fresco dining and lounging in the yard or under the shade of the gazebo. A combination of beautifully preserved tin walls and ceilings in the living room and an overall aesthetic that pays homage to the town's waterfront location makes for a perfect retreat.
I can't wait to stay again!
