Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located on a family-owned waterfront estate, The Gate House, a cozy 2-story, 2-bedroom cottage, is only steps away from the tranquil waters of the Peconic bay. 'one of the last saltwater farms,' the estate is not only picturesque, but is also an exemplary model of a traditional working farm.

Lots of natural light makes the house wonderfully cheerful, and gentle breezes from the water keep the house naturally cool. The intimate slate patio and sprawling lawn make for a great place to entertain friends and family. Stroll along the estate's expansive private beach or have a picnic overlooking the water. The beautiful tree-filled grounds complete the pristine view of the bay and Shelter Island, making the estate an artist’s paradise for all seasons. With room to roam and nature to explore, the property is both kid- and pet-friendly. The Gate House is peaceful and secluded, yet within easy walking distance to downtown Greenport Village, offering the best of both worlds.

With a strong nautical history, Greenport is a water-lover’s paradise and the perfect destination for sailing, boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing.

Mitchell Park Marina is just a short walk and provides transient slips by the day or week. Please call in advance for reservations to secure your spot.

While downtown in the village of Greenport, explore the local boutiques and stores. Take advantage of the history-rich Railroad, Stirling-Ireland House, and East End Seaport museums. Ride the antique carousel, or take a tour of the harbor on The Glory, an electric launch. Sample the local bounty from land and sea in a variety of restaurants offering casual fare to award-winning dining. Tour the over 42 vineyards located here on the North Fork. Discover the art galleries featuring local and international artists who represent the contemporary to the classic. So much tucked into one square mile, and all conveniently within walking distance!

Greenport, a short distance from Manhattan, Connecticut, and the South Shore means you don’t have to go far to get away. Enjoy a casual drive from the city, or let the LIRR or Hampton Jitney carry you here stress free. Either way there is something for everyone, so come and experience what makes Greenport charming and unique. For additional information about Greenport and all it has to offer, please visit the official village website supported by the Greenport BID. Make sure to enter Greenport Village in your search.

The estate also offers additional accommodations that when combined can be perfect for family gatherings. Please visit listing #167288--“Cottage on Waterfront Estate” or main house listing 234929

Shabby Chic and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house is old but lovely. It was very well equipped with just about everything you will need. A canoe and kayak, with life vests, are available . The owner, Pat, has managed to conceive of everything you may need and has it covered. He is friendly and accommodating, helping to create a warm relaxing atmosphere. The area was magnificent with the beach only a few hundred steps away. WE saw deer, rabbits and squirrels in our backyard every day. Downtown Greenport is a few minutes away with good restaurants and shops. We will be back.

Wonderful place to stay, walk to Greenport

  • 5 of 5

Third time we've used the gatehouse - easily accommodates 4 - 6 people for 7 days. 2 bedrooms upstairs with a futon downstairs. We had 2 parents and 3 young adults (kids). We all used the outdoor shower - why would anyone not want to?!?! Kitchen was adequate, the house was super clean, beds comfortable. You can walk across the lawn to the beach, walk or bike into Greenport. Great location - we brought a kayak, launched it from the beach, used it to paddle around the Cove and across the channel to Shelter Island. Pat is always so accommodating. Will definitely stay here again.

Charming and Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to write a glowing review for fear that this place will fill up next year. The house is simple, super clean, and very comfortable. Pat is a great host: the right amount of checking -n balanced with leaving his guest to enjoy the beauty of the place. The bay is the perfect temperature for swimming and the grass leading up to it makes for a perfect view. Short walk into town and the perfect location for great bike rides.

PEACEFUL, IDYLLIC RETREAT.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to England from our second stay at Cherry Lane Farm,Greenport. It is a terrific magical location against the sea with a backdrop of woods overlooking Shelter Island. It is a peaceful idyllic retreat to be able to really wind down amongst nature. Lots of birds and deer are seen on the estate, ideal location for birdwatchers. We had the Gatehouse again but there are other properties to suit various individuals or families. It is ideal for pet dogs (we took our daughters) and children of all ages to play safely on the beach and the grassed areas. The beach is private so only a handful of properties that front it use it for boats, fishing, sunbathing and playing. The properties are tastefully decorated to suit the individual buildings. The main large house is exquisitely decorated with beautiful furniture and antiques (ideal for large adult parties or 3/4 families). It also has an orangery overlooking the sea with plenty of space and a sauna. All the properties are clean and well maintained.

There are barbeques to each property and outdoor tables/ seating. Also there is an outdoor shower to each property which is very useful.

The owner Pat Nelson is a cheerful, helpful character who trys to make sure your holiday goes smoothly and enjoyably.

The location can be reached easily by the Hampton Jitney (coach) from Manhatten (2 1/2 hrs) or train if you do not wish to rent a car. It is a 5 minute walk from the train/coach station.

The centre of town and port is a 10 minute walk and you can cross on the ferry to Shelter Island or the Hamptons .There are plenty of cafe's, bars, restaurants and take-aways to choose from in town.

I would recommend Cherry Lane Farm to my friends, relatives, families,couples and groups of people for a fantastic holiday.

Cute cottage on fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to bring our 15 month old daughter somewhere that she could be exposed to nature and free to roam. This place was perfect! Having the beach all to ourselves was just lovely! Pat was a great host. He seems to love having kids around and even helped us to set up a bird feeder near the window and yard so that my daughter could "feed the birds" and watch them. She loved the birds and the whole trip! We will definitely be back.

Wonderful week at Cherry Lane Farm

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great week and a half at the Gate House. The house was perfect for us - easily accomodated two adults. one teenager and a small dog, with room to spare. The property is beautiful and tranquil, with it's own stretch of private beach and lots of open lawn space. The owner, Pat, is very nice and gave us terrific suggestions about places to visit in the area. We had a car, but for a shorter visit, one could easily do without one, as the village is about a ten minute walk away. We were sad to leave!
