As Perfect as the Description!
From pre-booking through departure, everything about the house and owner was perfect. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive prior to arrival and during the trip, answering all questions and even providing great recommendations of things to do in Greenport.
The house itself is immaculate, and unlike other rentals that cram as many beds into a room and go cheap on the finishes, this beautiful, homey house more than comfortably sleeps 8 and has gorgeous touches and finishes, from a pot belly stove in the kitchen to a clawfoot tub in the bathroom The yard is also quiet spacious, making a great play spot for young children or a fun bbq area for adults.
The location of the house in Greenport is perfect as it's only a 5-10 minute walk to the town, which features great shops that sell anything ranging from your typical beach town souvenirs to high quality handmade jewelry, fantastic restaurants, an amazing bakery, and 4 ice cream shops. Also in town is a beautiful little beach and playground, and the ferry to Shelter Island, which is a quick, 10 minute ride and makes for a great day trip.
Greenport in general, is an excellent, centrally located spot in North Fork. Besides being 10 minutes from Shelter Island, the town is only a 15/20 minute drive from the wineries and farms, 10 minutes from Orient Point, and there are at least 5 different beaches within a 20 minute radius.
I could not recommend this rental and town enough and definitely plan on going back next time I am in North Fork!
