Arl & Steve toast the sunset  '07 vacation 130Music and wine go so well together and Long Island North Fork wineries are hosting many great bands this Labor Day Holiday (August 29-September 1).

The last weekend of summer kicks off the beginning of our fall harvest season, for many locals a favorite time of the year on the North Fork. We at Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast especially love week days on the North Fork during September and October.

Shorecrest BandB is fully booked weekends through the beginning of October but we are offering discounts on two, three and four night stays mid week, Sunday through Thursday where availability allows. A delicious full course breakfast and our exclusive discount card to 24 local wineries is always included.

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.
