North Fork Fall Special Events: Native Culture, Holiday Specials, Shellabration!

November 10th, 2018 by Abigail Field

The North Fork offers many special events in November and December to celebrate the season, the holidays and our New England heritage. Read on to pick the weekend and events that interest you, then book your Shorecrest room or vacation rental. Below we highlight a few we particularly like. If none catch your fancy, check the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast events calendar for more ideas. There is a lot more music, wine and art happening throughout the year, and we regularly add to the calendar. So check back often.

And if all you really want to do is sleep late, indulge in a delicious leisurely breakfast, sit by the fire and read over a cup of tea of glass of wine, or indulge in a fun board game selected from our large collection in the sun porch, we always have that for you right here at the Shorecrest!

And if you are feeling a little energetic or would like a breath of fresh air, our very own beach is located less than 500 feet away and we have maps and guides to the many hiking trails and preserves near-by. Or take a stroll in our garden, which is still blooming even in November, and will be until the first frost at least! A stay at the Shorecrest is the perfect Country House Getaway!
