Greenport cottage description

In these stressful economic times it has never been more important to get away for a romantic weekend or to enjoy time with friends and family. The Enchanted Cottage allows you to do just that with both style and affordability. The living room sofa pulls out into a queen size bed. Perfect for a second couple or for your kids. Remember, the cottage boasts three rooms, so you can use the four-season porch as your living room, while using the living room as a second guest room. We've provided a collection of great games. Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly for you all to enjoy together. The kitchen, with its clothes washer/dryer is incredibly practical for families staying with children. With so many of your needs taken care of, you can truly enjoy your time with your children and friends. Harbor Knoll can even provide babysitting services. Massages in your cottage can also be arranged.

The Gardens and Grounds

The Enchanted Cottage is set amid a beautifully landscaped property on Peconic Bay. The English flower gardens provide a lovely spot for quiet contemplation and conversation. One-hundred-year old trees provide shade and protection from the summer sun. In the summer, there is a garden bed full of hydrangea in magnificent blue, pink and purple hues. Relax on an Adirondack chair with a glass of lemonade while watching sailboats glide across the harbor.

Last but not least...the Beach!

As if a charming cottage amid glorious gardens is not enough there are chaise lounges on the beach for your comfort. Here you can listen to the gentle sea breezes. Go for a swim! There is even a dock where you are weclome to sit and relax.

Needless to say, the beach is a marvelous playground for children. They can swim, skip pebbles on the water and collect seashells.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1973

                      About the owner: My husband and I bought this property in 1973 as our weekend/summer house to get us away from the stress and bustle of New York City. With its location on the water, its proximity to the Village of Greenport and Shelter Island and easy public transport to Manhattan, Harbor Knoll, was a perfect getaway from Manhatan. I retired approximately 9 years ago and turned the house into a Bed and Breakfast. The Enchanted Cottage is a separate unit on the property. It was totally renovated in 2008 and provides perfect accommodation for anyone seeking privacy on a beautiful property with easy access to everything.

                      Why the Owner Chose Greenport:
                      As mentioned above, the wonderful location with its fantastic waterfront view, private beach and dock and easy access to everything were the major factors in our decision to buy this property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Waterfront, private beach and dock. Privacy, beautiful gardens, basketball court and childrens tree house.
