The Space

Classy old North Fork house has been on this small-town main road since 1900. Large living room, dining table, nooks, architectural eccentricities with original floors and fittings. The cheery well equipped kitchen is perfect for packing picnics and cooking projects.
Five bedrooms ; 3 doubles and 2 singles upstairs- one of these is a convertable study with trundle daybed. Q sized sofa bed, portable Q & T air beds, plus kids cot make for flexible arrangements. 2.5 baths.
Trouble with climbing stairs? Our bath downstairs has, a walk-in/wheel-in European style shower. No obstructing ledges to step over. This bathroom is next to the Libray which closes off for en-suite privacy.
We also have a portable wheel chair ramp which we'd be happy to set up for you.
Our eclectic style attracts writers, artists, readers and other curious originals.Browsing in the large library will remind you of days before (website hidden)... but naturally there's wireless internet.
Families have lived here continuously for over 100 years- it is not a museum, we'd like you to feel at home. The old-fashioned high ceilings make central air improbable, so the 4 large bedrooms upstairs have window units as does the downstairs library ..elsewhere, fans and air-flow make us the breeziest house on the block.
Walking distance to village shops and NYC train/ bus. Farmstands, wineries, beaches- all close and friendly.
Don't forget the ferries- Orient Point and New London,Greenport-Shelter Island-Sag Harbor.

whole house and yard are yours

Interaction with Guests

I will be there to greet you and give you a key and am available if there are questions.

The Neighborhood

We are on the edge of a small village, tree lined streets, white churches, bikes, and local parades. Walking distance to market, post office, transportation, library, cafes and a few quiet restaurants. Farm stands, fish market, yard sales and beaches.

Getting around

Plenty of parking in driveway behind house- its nice to have a car , but many city dwellers come without--they take the bus or train - (I can collect you- the stop is less than 1/4 mile) and bring or rent bicycles...

  • Our trip to the Ink Hotel was wonderful!!! A beautiful, warm and comfortable home. My friends and I had the most relaxing and fun weekend. The house is fully stocked with everything you need, millions of books in every room, an awesome backyard perfect for barbecuing and the fully equipped kitchen is perfect. We rented bikes, went wine tasting, checked out a few of the beaches nearby, Southold is awesome. Ellen was so kind and helpful, available at a moment's notice but still respected our privacy. We will definitely be back!!!

  • We stayed in a group of 9 as a part a pre-wedding weekend, and the ink hotel was a terrific place for us to stay. The home is absolutely charming, with such character, artistic flair and unique touches in every room and corner.

    Though the weekend was particularly hot (a part of the NYC heatwave in July), the ink hotel was perfectly comfortable to stay at and met all of our respective needs. Ellen herself is a delightful person, and she was a joy to correspond with and later meet in person.

    We are grateful to have stayed at the beautiful ink hotel, and we hope to be back! Thank you always, Ellen!
