Here's a convenient guide to the Greenport bed and breakfasts to help make planning your visit to this beautiful town a little easier. I've included a picture and description of each one and where possible a video as well.
With it's salty charm and close proximity to the wineries the village of Greenport on Long Island's North Fork is one of our most popular travel destinations.
Staying at one of it's 7 bed and breakfasts is an excellent way to experience Greenport's rich maritime history, outstanding restaurants and boutiques, and of course Long Island's very fine wine.
Like hops? There's a brewery here too!
With so many to choose from it should be easy to find a bed & breakfast that suits your needs and style. Some are quiet and solitary while others encourage a party like atmosphere, and most fall somewhere in between. They're all good, so you really can't go wrong no matter which one you choose. Read the descriptions, watch the videos and have fun!
