The Best Bed and Breakfast in New York

A Walk on the Beach

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The very best that New York has to offer in Bed and Breakfast or hotel accommodations is not in New York City.  In fact, as far as a bed & breakfast goes, you won’t find many within the concrete jungle that have the same access to the great outdoors, serenity and beauty of New York’s Long Island and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean that surround it.  Many of New York’s state’s most beautiful spaces and natural wonders are however just a short car ride from the city.

The Shorecrest bed & breakfast is known in many circles as the single most beautiful, centrally located, and relaxing country style inn in the state.  Certainly the miles of pristine beaches, acres of farmland and close proximity to Orient Point State Park, Shelter Island , the Arshamomaque inlet and preserve, the Audubon headquarters and preserve and other parks and wildlife refuges have added to the allure of this location.

Not only does the Shorecrest offer world class four course dining experience with the gourmet breakfast served in the elegant formal dining room each morning but also difficult to top customer service.
For those of you looking for a unique and elegant wine tasting experience, the Shorecrest lies at the very heart of Long Island’s wine country, with literally dozens of vineyards, wineries, and tasting rooms within a 30 minute ride.  The inn is conveniently located near Highway 25 and route 48, the main Long Island wine country thoroughfares.  You’ll have the opportunity to spend a weekend tasting some of the east coasts most delicious and complex vino while retiring to the beauty of a one acre estate of extensive perennial gardens and adjacent beaches.

If you are looking for a quiet, cozy getaway with room to explore the natural settings and beautiful landscapes in the area, the Shorecrest bed & breakfast is the perfect destination.  Bike and kayak rentals are available not far from the inn and along with that slower pace you’ll find yourself swept back to another time where life moved more slowly,  and you can savor the company of friends and loved ones.

Even if you’re looking for a unique combination of country living and metropolitan comforts, the Shorecrest bed & breakfast is the place to come.  There are spectacular restaurants and shopping opportunities only minutes away.  And what better way to relax after a hard day’s shopping and dining than in your own hammock, on the beach or contemplating the fish and frogs in the ornamental pond?  The Shorecrest really puts the best of both worlds at your fingertips, offering you both luxury and a beautiful rustic setting.

The Shorecrest B&B also offers photographers and artists a wonderful opportunity to visit and capture some of rural Long Island’s most picturesque and beautiful sights.  The nearby horse farms and fields give you an excellent opportunity to find out exactly what New York looked and felt like long ago while you photograph or just absorb the natural beauty of the area.  The innkeeper is knowledgeable about the area and more than happy to help you build a customized walking, driving, peddling, or paddling tour and will be sure to point you in the right direction when it comes to the sights and attractions you want to see and  experience.  The Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast is truly a New York State gem located conveniently close to the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.  But don’t let its close proximity to the city fool you, once you are here it’s very easy to peel back the layers of your fast-paced life and begin to let your spirit rest easy, inspired by the pastoral beauty of this pastoral setting.

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.
