Overview

About the property

5 bedroom, 2 bathroom recently renovated & newly furnished home in town

Come relax in one of the most gorgeous, quaint seaside towns in America. Historic Greenport, New York is a sleepy fishing town with all the perks of being near the city with none of the hustle and bustle. Located near the end of the North Fork, Greenport is convenient to all the vineyards, farms, and nearby towns as well as home to the Shelter Island Ferry and 8 miles from the Orient Point Ferry to Connecticut. Take the Hampton Jitney or Long Island Rail Road from the city to the heart of town and walk 2 short blocks to our house. No car required!

Our home is a renovated 1873 Victorian beauty. We have brand new furniture in all 5 bedrooms as well as 2 full bathrooms. Our recent renovation includes adding brand new air conditioning, new kitchen appliances and plumbing, a full dining room and eat-in-kitchen, a new backyard grill, wi-fi, and plasma TV. We have all the kitchen appliances, serving ware, linens, and beach towels you need to come and go during your stay. Our home includes a brand new washer and dryer as well as a new dishwasher. Driveway and street parking are available if you bring a car, but everything is within a short, tree-lined walk to downtown.

Our home can sleep up to 12 adults in the 5 bedrooms. We have two King bedrooms, one Queen bedroom, a room with 2 twin beds, and a room with 2 sets of bunk beds. Each bedroom boasts BRAND NEW Sealy Posturpedic mattesses, down comforters, and dressers. There are closets in every bedroom and plenty of storage to go around. We absolutely welcome your children, but please leave your furry friends at home.

Relax on the front deck or in the back yard with our brand new grill or talk a short two-block walk to town and explore downtown Greenport. The local cuisine has changed a lot over the past few years and offers both daytime coffee and breakfast spots as well as nighttime bars and seaside dining. Take advantage of the incredibly fresh seafood at the local spots and drink wine from the nearby vineyards. Bring the kids to see the tall ships or take a ride on the carousel that overlooks Peconic Bay. Don’t forget to stop at the ice cream shop on the way home!

Rent a car or book a limo to explore the dozens of award-winning vineyards for the day. Make time to stop at the local fresh fruit and vegetable stands for a homestyle barbeque later that night. Briermere Farms is our favorite place to snag a pie for dessert. Other nearby towns have great restaurants to try--and we have a visitors guide full of them for you to check out upon arrival! Got questions? We’re locals! Ask us for recommendations before you visit.

Kick back and relax in the most picturesque town on the North Fork. Bring your family and friends, or stay here for your wedding or family reunion. This town has something for everyone and our home is the perfect place to stay while you enjoy your trip.

Why Justin Bales chose Greenport

This house is a dream house for the Bales Family who have poured their hearts into this summer's renovation. With the goal of restoring the house to its original beauty, the Justin and Abby have thoughtfully brought the plumbing, electric, and appliances all up-to-date while maintaining the Victorian-era details of the original architecture.

The house has been a private home and a boarding house for sailors. It survived floods, hurricanes, and the ever-changing times the East End of Long Island has endured. With little details, hidden corners, and back staircases, the house has a place for everyone to relax. It's truly one of the most remarkable homes in Greenport.

Gorgeous home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Justin's home was ideal for my group of 12 ladies. It's impeccably maintained, beautifully furnished, very spacious, and the location in the village can't be beat - a <5 minute walk into town and <10 minutes to the train station (so you don't need a car). Justin is a communicative and conscientious owner who proactively raised possible inconveniences very well in advance and was flexible and accommodating when we requested an early check in/late check out. The only very minor drawbacks in our experience were having only 2 (lovely) bathrooms - a little bit tricky with 12 guests but even we were able to make it work - and limited outdoor space. But overall, a truly wonderful stay, great host and highly recommend!

Wonderful Family Vacation in Greenport

  • 5 of 5

This home really delivered for our family of 8 adults and 3 children. We were all comfortable with good beds...the kids loved having a bunk room together (they're 8, 9 and 11 years old.) We could walk to so many great restaurants, shops and even the town beach. We had easy access to the Greenport Harbor Brewery for lunch and to the lovely Croteaux Vineyards for fabulous Rose wines. Evening trip for dinner and a sunset on Shelter Island was an easy hop on the local ferry. Beaches and kayaking within a ten minute drive. A great location...house has well stocked kitchen, lots of towels, good WIFI and Apple TV, as advertised. Highly recommended! Owner Justin was super.

Perfect family holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

The perfect antidote to a week sightseeing in Boston and New York. Greenport is a delightful small town with just the right mix of family friendly activities and places to eat. We loved the house and felt immediately at home. Well kitted out house, very comfortable beds, great bathrooms, good wifi and tv. Enough luxury for the adults without being too fancy for the kids. Great location - loved being able to stroll two blocks to downtown Greenport and a fabulous selection of restaurants, cafes and shops.

We would definitely come back.

Beautiful home!

We rented this property for Memorial Day Weekend. The owner was extremely helpful with recommendations for dining and activities in Greenport. The house was very clean and charming - plenty of space (we had 11 people). Definitely interested in making a trip back!
