North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association Summer Event; Saturday July 16th 2011

Dance on Saturday 16th at Martha Clara Vineyard

Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast will be part of the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association’s Summer Event, a celebration of tourism and agriculture which takes place this coming Saturday, July 16th.
I’ve been working hard in the Shorecrest garden getting it ready for the visitors who have bought tickets for the garden tour part of the day’s activities. Visitors with the garden tour ticket can start their day with a visit to the Cornell University Extension experimental gardens on Sound Avenue in Riverhead, NY. If you garden on Long Island and would like some great ideas on what will do well here, this is a good place to start. Do you have a sick plant or strange looking insects eating your veggies? These are the people to call or even send them a leaf in the mail; they will get back to you with an explanation and possibly a cure. Cornell is a great resource for both farmers and gardeners.
The tour of the gardens continues in the afternoon from 1pm to 4pm with visits to six bed and breakfast, each of whom will be hosting a local farmer or food producer. Sang Lee will have a stand at Shorecrest and we will be serving fresh mint tea and mint flavored lemonade using our own home grown mint leaves. From 4.30pm to 6.30pm, visitors can purchase tickets for a prix fixe dinner, choosing from one of 9 North Fork restaurants: The Old Mill Inn, Jamesport Manor Inn, The Portly Grape, Scrimshaw, Skippers, Sound View, and Porto Bello will offer their chef’s signature dishes to diners. To end the days with a bang, the NFBBA will be hosting a dance with the music of Trevor Davision at Martha Clara Vineyard from 7:15 to 10:30 p.m.
The bed and breakfast association is donating part of the profits of the summer event to Cornell Cooperative Extension, which supports gardening and agriculture on Long Island and is part of the association’s longstanding commitment to strengthen business on the North Fork while supporting agriculture and tourism.
Tickets can be purchased on line for all or just parts of the event through Brown Paper tickets. To find out more about activities throughout the year, check the association’s website at nfbba.org.

Greenport Holiday Festival on Long Island’s North Fork

The holiday season in the historic maritime village of Greenport, just 5 minutes drive from Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast in Southold began Saturday, November 27th with the arrival of Santa and the lighting of the holiday tree in Mitchell Park. Every weekend through to the New Year events are scheduled in the village for children and adults, including the opportunity for shopping, great dining (such as Noah’s and The Frisky Oyster) plus concerts, house tours, films, and much more for your entertainment.

The season culminates with a bang – literally – on New Year’s Eve with a party and celebration at the carousel in Mitchell Park, the traditional raising of the anchor, and spectacular fireworks over Greenport Harbor. For a complete list of events you can visit the Greenport Holiday Festival website and for photographs and more pictures, the Suffolk Times on line newspaper has a comprehensive spread on Greenport and the festival activities this week.

Fireworks over the Harbor in Greenport

 

Visitors to Greenport and the North Fork discover a treasure trove of delights for all appetites; gifts for everyone on your list; decorations and gift wraps; antique stores and museum shops. All the villages along the length of Rout 25, one of the two east to west roads from Riverhead to Orient Point offer their own unique holiday festivities.

Each year the Southold Historical Society hosts a candlelight tour of the Historic District in December to coincide with the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Associations Holiday House Tour; also in Southold is the Custer Institute Observatory, which is open every Saturday evening for star gazing or catching the latest meteor shower. Southold is famous for its dark skies and lack of light pollution and star gazing is a favorite of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast or rental house guests from our beach on the Long Island Sound.

Speaking of things to do on the North Fork during the holidays and winter, we cannot forget to mention the wineries and vineyards. Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is making its own wine this year with Lisa and Anthony Sannino of Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard on Peconic Lane in Cutchogue, the only custom wine making facility on the North Fork of Long Island. We are just printing up our first label and hope to have some bottles ready to serve and gift in time for Christmas this year. Shorecrest and the other members of the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association (NFBBA) also offer to our guests an exclusive winery discount card, with special offers on purchases and complimentary tastings at over 20 wineries.

So come along and enjoy the festivities during the holiday season; we are open for visitors Christmas day and the week between Christmas and New Year, and every weekend throughout the winter. We look forward to welcoming you to Shorecrest soon.

Wishing you a very happy holiday season and healthy and Successful New Year

Marilyn

Innkeeper and Manager, Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast and Property Management
