About the property

Built in 1828 for a ship’s captain, this historic property remains as one of the oldest structures in the village.

Original details abound. Large, bright & airy rooms. Brand new furnishings. Perfect for entertaining or a quiet weekend retreat.

The Space

Located on a tree lined street this sun-filled two story house sleeps up to 9 people. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a large eat in-kitchen, a lounge room with a queen size sleeper couch and a spacious living area with TV and wifi. The private fenced-in backyard offers plenty of space to unwind with a covered porch, BBQ facilities, deck chairs and a brick enclosed fire pit.

Steps away from Greenport Village and walking distance to restaurants, cafes, Greenport Brewery, the Shelter Island Ferry and the beach. You will be very close to some of North Fork’s award winning vineyards and local farm stands where you can enjoy plenty of fresh local food.

Guest Access

Pleasebe cafeful when going to the basement. Please only use it if you must do laundry during your stay. There are much nicer areas in the rest of the house for you to enjoy anyway. The piano: right now, is just for show. We have plans to tune it and restore it soon!

Interaction with Guests

We respect your privacy, but we are accessible if you have questions or need anything throughout your stay.

The Neighborhood

We are biased, but we basically like everything about this town. Quaint and unassuming, you can truly unwind in complete privacy in this beautiful waterfront village. No need for a car to come or get around here! Our house is a short 8 min walk to the Jitney and LIRR stops, walk also to all the great restaurants and bars in the village. Our block is quiet and intimate while being just two blocks away from Front Street and the IGA Supermarket. Walk to 5th Street beach and 67 Steps Beach. Several other beaches less than a 10 minute drive away from the house. All the great wineries that the North Fork is known for (Bedell, Pindar, etc.) are just minutes away. Walk 4 blocks to Greenport Harbor Brewery- a must!

Getting around

Cab, limo and taxi services available (if you want to go for a tour of the wineries and don't want to drive). Getting around on bicycles is a popular choice as well. Walk to the Ferry to Shelter Island for a change in scenery.

Other Things to Note

Long day and just want to watch a movie? Netflix, Showtime and HBO available on our TV- no extra charges.

Neighbor interaction:

We live in a nice and quiet community with friendly neighbors we like and respect. We would like to keep Greenport this way. Unfortunately a few bad apples are creating a problem for the majority of guests who just want to have a low key relaxing time in our town. Loud parties are not welcome here. Please be aware that nuissance complaints from our neighbors could result in the forfeit of your security deposit.

Beautiful home, perfect area, friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed at the Captain's House for a weekend in early December. We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend. The house is just steps from the center of town, and a quick ride from the major wineries. The house is very welcoming and warm, and has more than enough space to spread out and feel like you're in your own home. Kitchen is beautiful and open, great for entertaining. The three bedrooms are all really well done. There is also a fire pit and grill, great for chilly evenings. Finally, the owners Carlos and Nicole were extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay. We would definitely stay at the Captain's House again!

Lovely House in Greenport

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Captain's House. Carlos and Nicole were very helpful and provided clear instructions for entry and exit into the house. The house itself is adorable! Plenty of space to lounge in the living room with a lovely deck in the backyard if the weather permits. Within walking distance of bars and restaurants which was a huge plus for our big group. We would definitely return!
