Only a Few Beach House Rentals left! Get Out East and Enjoy the North Fork!

It’s the middle of summer and almost all of our beach houses are booked! We know you want to get away to the North Fork of Long Island and relax at the beach, stroll through the vineyards sipping a glass of white wine, pick fresh blueberries from the farm stand down the road and enjoy your summer. There is nothing like getting away and feeling like you never left home. It’s a beautiful thing to spend a week or more in your new “home away from home”. Lucky for you it is also extremely well decorated with a unique beach house feel but all the amenities a 5 star hotel would provide and more. Kayaks, private beaches, bikes, farmer’s markets and many more treasures that will keep you and your friends or family occupied while you visit us on the North Fork. Be sure to check out our events calendar as well to see all the local activities going on.

Dan’s Taste of Two Forks – We Thank You !

Guests of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast are drawn to the North Fork of Long Island, and this particular small section of it in particular, as much for the outstanding restaurants as the many excellent wineries and farm fresh produce. In featuring many of them in the annual event  Dan’s Taste of Two Fork’s has become a landmark  happening for the community and a showcase for the culinary genius of top chefs from NYC to the very eastern tip of Long Island. This year the event was hosted by Bobby Flay and located in Sayre Park in Bridgehampton. We want to show our support by mentioning in our blog our hometown Chefs from the villages of Southold and the nearby Greenport, where my friends and fellow BnB owners can be found on many an evening enjoying the wonderful fair they offer in their outstanding restaurants.

NOAH’S (Greenport, NY):  One of my favorites, and famous for their small plates and raw bar, Chef Noah Schwartz created crabbed stuffed devil eggs for Taste of Two Forks.
