Guest access

Wifi with booster, landline telephone, DVD player--no cable, washer and dryer, dishwasher, air conditioner, microwave, full kitchen, towels and linens. Coaster bikes--bring your own helmets. Canoe, kayak for kids, stand up paddle board for kids--we have three small life jackets available.

Interaction with guests

We don't live far and we're always available by phone with any questions or concerns you might have.

The neighborhood

Quiet, tree lined streets; we are two blocks from a scenic beach. Great for jogging and biking. The wineries are five minutes away. There's cute shopping on the main drag and good restaurants all close by. There are water sport rentals - kayaks, wakeboarding (instruction available), waterskiing, surfing, tubing, kiteboarding, custom charters, fishing. You can tour all the historic lighthouses on the North Fork.

Getting around

You can reach Southold on the North Fork of Long Island by car, bus, ferry and railroad. The Cross Sound Ferry provides transportation to and from the North Fork and New England several times daily. The North Ferry provides access to Shelter Island (an island located in the middle of the North and South Fork of Island Island) and then you can take the South Ferry from Shelter Island to Sag Harbor and the Hamptons.

The Long Island Rail Road provides access to and from the Greenport station to Manhattan.

The Hampton Jitney is a bus that provides access from the North Fork to Manhattan daily. The Jitney also coordinates with LGA and JFK airports.

There is multiple highway access to Riverhead. Transportation by car east of Riverhead is limited to Highway 25.

Coming in from NYC - A traveler might opt for the Hampton Jitney if they do not want to drive or take the train. Currently Hampton Jitney rates are $22 each way with discounts available for round trip.

Traveling by car from New England, it may often pay to drive to the Island from New England via the Cross Island Expressway, if you are near there. That takes you to Queens, NY and is a drive east.

If you are coming from eastern Connecticut or north of Connecticut, it might pay to save time and take the North Fork Ferry.

The Cross Sound Ferry takes you from New London, Ct, to Orient Point, NY., a short ride from Southold.

Just south of the North Fork are the Hamptons and Montauk, which is easily driven to by heading west to Riverhead, and down south and back east again.

Alternatively, simply take the North Ferry to Shelter Island (beteen the two forks) and over to Sag Harbor, a popular Hamptons town.
Enjoy the town and drive south to the Hampton towns along the ocean. To the southwest of Sag Harbor, there are Westhampton, East Quogue, Hampton Bays. Just south is Southampton. Southeast is Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and furthest east Montauk Point.

The North Ferry can take you back to the North Fork and the Cross Sound Ferry can take you back to New England.

You will want to have a car in Southold, unless you are an ambitious bike rider (we have coaster bikes) or just intend to enjoy the house and the beach--the Elbow East restaurant is right around the corner, too. Taxi service entails a wait in the summer season--we're hoping Uber makes inroads!

Other things to note

During the summer there are wonderful lobster and seafood festivals. You can find dancing and picnicking at Mitchell park in the Greenport Marina. Greenport is 10 minutes away with great restaurants and shopping, a historic merry-go-round and marina. The ferry to Shelter Island is in Greenport. The Cross Sound ferry is close by in Orient.

Parking at local beaches is restricted to residents; our house is close enough that you can just walk to the beach.

You'll want to bring flip-flops or beach shoes for the pebbly North Shore beaches.

Splish-Splash is a water park on 96 acres in Calverton, NY and is open from May to September; the Travel Channel has ranked it as the 3rd best water park in the country--with 30 rides and attractions, it's the 6th largest.

Golf courses, mini-golf, vineyards, pumpkin picking, antique shops, award-winning vineyards, art galleries, skate park, kayaking, hiking, biking, fishing--you could spend all summer in Southold and not run out of things to do.

We live on the North Shore of Long Island--I'm a nurse at Stony Brook Hospital and my husband's been teaching bass and guitar out here for more than thirty years--kindergartners through professionals; he does it all! We love Southold and the down-to-earth quality of the East End--they call it sushi in the Hamptons, but in Southold, they call it bait. We're busy with our four year old son and we don't get out to the house much these days--maybe next year!
