Summer is here and the North Fork of Long Island is in full gear. Beaches are ready and almost every winery has live music scheduled. But if you are still looking for something else to do, the East End is hopping with events and activities sure to please anyone.

And the best place to stay is in the heart of it with a Vacation Rental or a B&B stay. Both are available from Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast & Property Management for your next visit to North Fork, Long Island.

Enjoy a family vacation or reunion with friends by renting a private home on the North or South Fork of Long Island, N Y from Shorecrest Property Management, and even bring your pet! All our rental properties are child and pet friendly and we still have availability, plus one new spectacular 5 bedroom home on the South side of Southold overlooking a sandy beach on Shelter Bay.
