A truly lovely way to enjoy the Holiday Season in Greenport!

Southport Historical Society Holiday Candlelight Tour

Christmas on the North Fork would not be complete without the Southport Historical Society’s Candlelight Tour.  This year it is scheduled for the day after Thanksgiving, on November 27th from 3-6 PM.  If you have never enjoyed the tour, then this is the year to begin.  This is noted as one of the most fun and entertaining events of the year for the Historical Society as each year a different group of local residents decorate the various areas of the Museum Complex in true Holiday style. 

Each period building will be expertly decorated and arranged for visitors.  No two buildings will be decorated the same and many Holiday themed objects from the Society’s collection will appear in displays.  Tour guides will be dressed in period costumes and will guide guests along the many buildings of the Southport Historical Society.  Of course, the Christmas decorations would not be complete without Santa and his elves and rumor have it that they will be found in the Pine Neck Barn!

 As guests stroll along the complex, musicians and chorus singers will be performing Holiday music which is sure to get everyone in the true spirit of the season!  The lighting of the Hamlet Christmas Tree is always an exciting part of the tour and it will happen at 5 PM in front of the Ann Currie-Bell House.  Finish the evening with a little shopping at the Treasure Exchange or the Museum Gift Shop and you will be on your way to a delightful Holiday Season!

North Fork Holiday House Tour and Food & Wine Tasting

A Holiday House Tour and Progressive Food & Wine Tasting will be presented by The North Fork Bed & Breakfast Association (NFBBA) and will spread its magic and good cheer on Saturday, December 5 from 1 PM to 5 PM, to  wine and food lovers, antique buffs, and local charities.  This year ticket holders will be able to choose either the Champagne Tour or the Merlot Tour featuring nine of the Association’s members, each of whom will welcome visitors to their seasonally decorated Bed & Breakfast homes.  

Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast will be one of the five North Fork Bed and Breakfast’s who will participating in the Champagne Tour along with Aunt Dot’s, Quintessentials, Bartlett House, and Blue Iris.  Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is  offering a special package for the weekend. With a two night booking we will reserve two tickets for you for the Champagne Tour for an inclusive price of $295 per person. If you prefer the Merlot Tour the package for two nights with two tickets will be $275 per person and you still get to enjoy the Shorecrest experience and tasting.

Ticket holders for the B&Bs on the Champagne Tour will travel from one sumptuously decorated house to the next and be treated to a fine pairing of wines and food from the finest North Fork restaurants -Legends, A Mano, Jamesport Manor Inn, Love Lane Kitchen and Frisky Oyster, and taste award-winning wines from Martha Clara, Ospreys Dominion, Old Field, Peconic Bay, and Rafael wineries. 

Each of the B&Bs on the Merlot Tour (Orient Inn, Arbor View House, Harbor Knoll, and Andrews Legacy) will have pulled out all the stops in decorating their homes in Holiday Splendor and will offer refreshments and music to their visitors. 

The December 5th festivity is part of the NFBBA’s commitment to growing business on the North Fork and at the same time light up holiday spirits and welcome both neighbors and tourists to enjoy some of  the delight the East End has to offer during the winter season.  It is also the season for sharing and the NFBBA will donate a percentage of the ticket sales to two charities- Community Action of Southold Town (CAST) and Maureen’s Haven. 

Thanks – and enjoy your trip!
