Southold is located on one of the narrowest stretches of the North Fork on the far east end of New York’s Long Island, where the land juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and the Long Island Sound almost meets Shelter Bay. Our private Long Island Sound beach offers views of the Connecticut shore line on the horizon across 20 miles of ocean water to the North.

Note how close we are to the nearby maritime village of Greenport, named one of top ten prettiest towns by Forbes magazine in 2011. From Greenport you can take the car ferry or water taxi to Shelter Island and Sag Harbor and the Hamptons or tour the harbor in tall ships. Southold Hamlet only 2 miles to the south is an historic village with interesting shopping, and an historic district consisting of over 18 buildings dating from the early 18th and 19th centuries as well as the Custer Institute Indian museum and observatory, a great place to go star watching.
The area is famous for having over 40 wineries, vineyards and tasting rooms, dozens of farms and farm stands for the freshest of organic produce, fresh caught fish available right on the dock, plus miles of beaches and nature preserves including the Audubon center and bird sanctuary just 5 minutes drive from the house,
Some very talented chefs have been attracted to the area because of the abundance of fresh local produce from the farms, vineyards and sea, so it is also home to some of the best Zagat rated restaurants on Long Island including the North Fork Table and Inn in Southold and The Frisky Oyster, First and South and Noah’s in Greenport amongst them.
Just15 minutes from Orient Point and the Cross Sound ferry to New London Connecticut and half hour to Riverhead and the Long Island Expressway to all points west this is a uniquely pastoral sea side setting to be found within such easy traveling distance from major Metropolitan areas.
Regarding Short Term Rental Laws: The Town of Southold recently passed legislation requiring a minimum stay of 14 nights in private homes. We can rent for shorter periods of time but we cannot create another separate reservation within the same 14 night period. Therefore in the case that we accept a shorter stay we will block out the unused nights and only charge for those being occupied. We are currently offering generous discounts on a stay of 14 nights or longer.
Please note that this minimum night law only applies to residential properties and does not apply to Bed and Breakfast Inns, hotels or motels or other licensed or commercial lodging facilities. Shorecrest Property Management also manages the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast in Southold
