Overview

About the property

At entrance to Greenport Village & a few blocks from beautiful Peconic Bay Beach

The Captain’s Cottage is located in the seaport Village of Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island. George Graber was a Steamship Captain and the son of a renowned Schooner Smack Captain William Anderson Graber. He grew up one street over on Fifth Street, and when he married his wife Theresa Locker he moved in with her family to this cottage. More recently it was the home to the National SCRABBLE Association.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the restored 1880s home are the Shelter Island Ferry, the Hampton Jitney and the Long Island Railroad train station. When you arrive at that beautiful spot you won’t believe you are only 100 miles from midtown Manhattan.

Within a few blocks of this cozy home you can be sunbathing at the Fourth Street beach, fishing off the Fifth Street dock, playing with your children at the beach park or walking to town to sample one of the fine restaurants Greenport boasts. Why not try a tasting at the local Greenport Harbor Brewery or learn how to shuck your own oysters at the dockside Little Creek Oyster? A comprehensive sampling of local menus will be provided at the cottage.

The 2-story cottage is at the corner of the Main Road and Fourth Streets sleeps 6 and features three bedrooms: Queen, full and a room with two twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining room, living room and a small den-home office or game room. There is ample on-site parking and a screened porch for outdoor dining. This is a no-smoking property. We welcome families. Sorry no pets.

This is THE place to rent if you're vacationing in Greenport!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about both Captain's Cottage and it's delightful owner, Jane. The cottage itself is warm, welcoming, and immaculate. Perfectly outfitted for adults and children alike. The kitchen is super functional and the bedrooms are all spacious and thoughtfully decorated. Every detail was tended to by the owner, from the welcome chocolates on the counter to the perfectly folded bath towels, staying here was like being in a perfectly run Bed & Breakfast, but with all of the luxuries and conveniences (space, kitchen, etc.) of renting a house. Jane was beyond accommodating and such an amazing host. And then the location -- it literally doesn't get any better! We didn't need our car at all and could walk to all the amazing restaurants, shops, etc. in town (2-7 minute walks depending on where you're going). Super close to the carousel/docks and a playground for anyone with kids! Overall, a very memorable weekend in large part due to Jane and her awesome cottage.

Warm Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our newborn son, stayed at this lovely cottage with our two friends, another couple from NYC. All adults were in need of a quiet respite and, as new parents, we were desperate for a getaway. A winter weekend at the Restored Seaport Home was just what the doctor ordered and, as Greenport frequenters, I can say that this location was our best, most memorable experience yet. The vacation began with such gracious, hospitable correspondence from the owner, Jane, who not only accommodated our last-minute reservation, but also personally prepared the house for our arrival, taking into consideration that we would be traveling with a newborn. The house was charming and warm, both figuratively and literally, and no detail was left unattended to. The layout is perfect for two couples, as the upstairs spacious bedrooms are separated by a beautiful large, newly-finished bathroom- making it feel like two separate bedroom "wings" so-to-speak. The bedrooms are large and the beds are comfortable. Downstairs, we spent time cozying up in the living room watching movies (provided), playing board games (provided), reading (large library of books available), and sipping a glass of wine (or two, or three). Beyond the comfortable nature of the house which is rich in history, an outstanding feature of the Restored Seaport Home is the LOCATION. With a 24-hour convenient store a stone's throw away and the village of Greenport strolling distance down the block (two minute walk), once we parked in the driveway upon our arrival, we did not need a car at all. We walked to town at our convenience, enjoying coffees from Aldo's, lunch at Lucharitos (tacos), oysters at Little Creek, and dinner from The Frisky Oyster. We even managed afternoon beers at Greenport Brewery and brunch at American Beech. We love Greenport in the winter, as it feels like a very personal, quiet, calm and inviting community. Now, having stayed at the Restored Seaport Home and meeting Jane, we look forward to reserving this lovely house and frequenting this beautiful town much more often. Thank you, Jane!

Amazing home just steps from town!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 5 family members and we had a wonderful time walking through town, riding the Carousel and eating seafood at Claudio's.

This house is very comfortable, clean and had many charming amenities like board games and books for the entire family. The owner Jane is very sweet and accommodating.

I highly recommend staying here if you ever travel to Greenport, NY!

Beautiful Greenport Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Captain's Cottage! Jane was a welcoming host, who quickly and graciously responded to our inquiries and needs. The home is located right at the edge of downtown - just steps from all of the shops, restaurants, train, ferry, carousel, and the 5th street beach. It was wonderful to walk everywhere with our two young children. Jane provided many amenities for us and our children making the house really feel like home! The pack-and-play, beach toys, bath toys, games, and puzzles were all perfect. I particularly enjoyed the chocolates upon arrival! The kitchen is well-equipped and it was so easy to pick up some food at the local IGA and have breakfast at the house. One thing to note, because the house is on a main street there is some traffic noise early in the morning/evening. We wake up quite early, so it wasn't an issue for us. Overall, a terrific vacation rental! Thank you again, Jane! We hope to visit beautiful Greenport again soon!
