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.

Lovely 5 day getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home. Very comfortable and wonderfully decorated. In walking distance to town and that was a big plus for us. It was clean and everything you need is provided. Jane and Joe are so sweet and amenable. The beach is a short drive or long walk depending on your mood. We had breakfast on the screened porch and a big family dinner in the dining room. Very nice quiet block with some traffic but nothing bad. Good air conditioning which came in handy the week we were there. We'd definitely return.

House, Host and Proximity Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend stay at the cottage included short walks to the beach, even shorter walks to downtown Greenport for shopping and dinner, visiting our favorite vineyards and breweries, and relaxing out in the screened in porch. Jane, our host, made sure from the chocolate covered pecans to the himalayan pink salt, that we felt welcome. The house was actually larger then anticipated, several spaces to sneak off to read or simply relax, including the front porch, small den, living room and sun room. Details such as a basket of towels and a stack of chairs, welcoming a beach visit were laid out in the sun room ready to go. Our two younger members of our group loved being able to stay out late in town and walk safely home. This was our favorite annual Greenport June weekend thus far!

The cottage was in pristine condition & just a minutes walk away from town

  • 4 of 5

This property was quaint & adorable. Everything was perfectly appointed. The bedrooms upstairs were very nice-sized & very comfortable with lots of pillows & soft sheets. The bathrooms had everything you might need for a weekend stay including face wash & make-up removing towelettes. The downstairs had a number of tiny rooms with different functions. My son enjoyed his time in the game room which was stocked with all kinds of games & puzzles. There was a soft rocking chair where my Mom sat & read her book & my kids enjoyed playing cards around the living room coffee table. All in all it was a cozy little cottage to come home to after shopping & dining in Greenport just a short walk away. I would recommend this property highly!
