Greenport, NY 11944
The Art Lover's Lair is aptly named-a charming, newly renovated apartment attached to The South Street Gallery in Greenport Village. Virtually everything is within walking distance—village shops, restaurants, yacht basin, train & bus stations and so many other amenities. Beaches are close-by too.
This second floor apartment has a new and bright kitchen and a cheery art-filled ambiance. Tall ceilings, original artwork and a living room/kitchen open to a cozy deck—making this space delightfully comfortable and inviting. Consider it for an escape any time of the year where you can unwind or use it as home base to explore the fabulous North Fork. In fact it's so close to the Shelter Island Ferry, you will be very tempted to visit Greenport's South Fork/Hamptons counterpart-Sag Harbor Village-easily accessed across Shelter Island.
The Art Lover's Lair is also the perfect place to escape if you are planning a small affair in The South Street Gallery—a fabulous space for a small wedding, rehearsal dinner or even a corporate party. Regardless of your reason, a stay in The South Street Gallery's Art Lover's Lair will be a comfortable and relaxing home away from home.

This condo resort is stupendously located on the North Fork of L.I, and is one of only a handful of places with water views. The sunset views are not be outdone anywhere in the world. In a place that offers mostly small motels/hotels and B&B's, this is a very comfortable, convenient, and luxurious way to spend time out east. All condos are two bedroom/ two bath, sleep 6, have flat screen tv's, full kitchenettes (even a wine chiller!) and wi-fi. There's a heated swimming pool and laundry facilities on site and if you have a large group or family, it offers multi unit special pricing. It is located only minutes from the Village of Greenport and the Shelter Island Ferry providing traffic free access to the Hamptons. I found the pricing surprisingly affordable so if you plan a visit this summer, you may be one of the resort's first guests!
