Things to do on the North Fork – Best Yard Sale of the Year!

The annual yard sale held by the Southold Historical Society in my village of Southold is legend and easily on of the best of the North Fork.  People say they put it on their calendars months in advance just so they will not miss it.  Come and decide for yourself!

You will find furniture, antiques, porcelain, pottery, glass, silver, jewelry, household goods, books, photographs, paper, bottles, kitchen items, and a host of other material that we collect over the course of an entire year!

The yard sale is:

Saturday, June 9 from 8am to 2pm

on the Prince Building Porch at

54325 Main Rd. in Southold.

Another ‘not to be missed’ event is the  Annual Candlelight Holiday Tour. The Southold Historical Society will host the tour this year at the Museum grounds on the Main Road opposite the Firehouse on Friday November 23, 2012 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. All buildings will be decorated for the holiday season and open to the public.

Farm and home craft demonstrations will take place in the various buildings, strolling musicians will be on the grounds, Santa will be visiting, and refreshments will be served. The annual tree lighting at 5:00 p.m. will be accompanied by caroling led by the Southold High School Chorus Ensemble. No admission charge, donations accepted.

This is a great activity to  get you into the holiday spirit while you are enjoying your stay at the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast.

Check out the Southold Historical Society website for more information on their activities, to visit their online shop or to learn about the historic legacy of Southold Township and village, one of the earliest settlements in New England.

Greenport Long Island New York, One of America’s Prettiest Towns

Although not officially established until 1837, Greenport was certainly already impressive with its untouched surroundings and its advantageous location above the Peconic Bay. In April of 2011, it was named as one of America’s Prettiest Towns by Forbes magazine. Its rather idyllic past and present is likely what drives its visitors to continue to return.

Growing Greenport

As it has grown it has also managed to retain its unpretentious attitude, small town feel, and a real slice of Americana. Although its nearby Manhattanites have brought with them more modern foods as well as the wine scene, Greenport should definitely be noted for its lovely summer cottages with beach or boating activities not more than a few minutes away. With top-notch dining such as the fare presented at The Frisky Oyster, Greenport is one of the towns nearby to Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast.

Greenport’s old-school looks may be deceiving to those who think that means that Greenport is behind the times. Although it boasts its own art galleries, coffee shops, and plenty of shopping for Shorecrest BnB visitors, its more welcome feel can be found in the nearby inns, lovely beaches, and a fishing heritage that caters a bit more to those who may prefer rest and relaxation in their travels as opposed to glitzy star-gazing.

Many of our past guest have expressed their delight at the welcome feel of nearby Greenport and many returning guest look forward to subsequent visits there. The next time you stay at Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast, ask us about Greenport, and we will be glad to let you know what other delights you may find in one of America’s Prettiest Towns.
