Seaside Greenport Village Historic
District, on Long Island’s North Fork, New York.
“Rose Cottage” is within the Greenport Village Historic District with water views of Sterling Harbour’s busy mooring field of classic to modern sailboats, and power. Fish as close as the Village dingy dock, two doors away: rent a boat, or slip, or launch your own, within a local clam’s throw. Bathe in and eat from some of Long Island’s (or the world’s) most pristine water quality maritime environments.
Greenport Village is the gem of Long Island’s few active seaside villages: off the beaten path yet easily accessible from New York City by the LIRR, Hampton Jitney or car, or from Boston by car or Amtrak and the New London-Orient Ferry.
Rose Cottage is an easy stroll from the Village Center and its restaurants, cafes, boutiques, gourmet shops, many art galleries and antique shops, banks (ATMs), bookstore, hardware and marine supplies, farm stand and supermarket.
Greenport Eating is a pleasure from picnics at the many beaches, or harbour front Mitchell Park, with its Carousel and live entertainment, to waterfront clam bars, diner, cheese emporium, and tea shop, and of course more formal fine dining with top chefs and local food.
Day Trips might include the quaint Orient Village, Sag Harbour, Orient Ferry roundtrip, the ‘Peconic Star’ to Block Island, Nature Conservancy's Mashomeck Preserves, Audobon Society’s birding and Town’s trails and woods, walk on the Shelter Island Ferry and stroll among the gingerbread houses and restaurants of the ‘Heights’.
Greenport village is in the heart of the award winning North Shore Wine Country, with tasting rooms and live entertainment.
Green Farm Stands all the time and Saturday morning tag sales and flea markets.
All surrounded by the sea.
“Rose Cottage” is beautifully furnished and styled by its owner, the former decorating editor of a national magazine, with an open floor plan, spacious rooms, gourmet kitchen: very light, and very airy.
A two story Cape, two bedrooms (one queen, one double) and full bath upstairs, main floor master bedroom/front parlor with queen sofa couch and full bath (sleeps 4) kitchen dining room with half bath, large sun filled living room, couch sized reading bay window, and fireplace for cozy fall and winter evenings, “Rose Cottage” is surrounded by beautiful gardens, ideal for outdoor entertainment, fountains, mini ponds, and a pergola.
Other amenities include washer/dryer, dishwasher, central air and heat, fireplace, cable TVs, internet access, personal chef available for shopping, cooking, small dinner parties, lunches, picnics.

An incredibly charming getaway. Something out of a movie.
The cottage is creatively and beautifully decorated.
It has all the ammenities you could possibly need for a short or long stay and it is very convenient to all that Greenport has to offer.
What a lovely home, great location, and welcoming host! Thank you again.
We have stayed in this beautiful cottage twice. It is simply lovely, and is so convenient to everything you need in Greenport. Within walking distance of water, restaurants and shopping. We will be back!!
As the Fall arrives here in CO and winter is around the corner, we start to dream of summer and that has meant the Rose Cottage for the last 3 years. We so enjoy the location, the gardens, the beautiful decor. We feel so blessed to be able to return to such a comfortable home and know how responsive and kind the owners are, from attending to an internet snafu within minutes to having the best advise on what's happening in town and the wines to try. Walking to town, biking to the beach, and sitting in the shade to read, this is this perfect summer day. We're looking forward to summer 2016 already!
Rose Cottage - a lived in experience
I've stayed at a number of houses through VRBO, but never have I stayed in someone's primary home. The owners moved out for the week, making room in closets, but leaving food in the refrigerator and freezer. It was also not thoroughly cleaned, as we were greeted by a bucket of dirty water and a sponge in the kitchen (perhaps they were hoping we would take the initiative?).
To add to the situation, the owner "stopped by" three times to water her plants, check the mail and place the garden furniture back to where she wanted it.
Overall it was an unnerving experience to be in a guest in a stranger's home. There was too much clutter. The furniture was very uncomfortable. The gourmet kitchen is disorganized and dated (the dishes came out cleaner when we washed by hand). The garden is overgrown and buggy, not the tranquil zen spot that is depicted in the pictures and not inhabitable in the evenings. In general, the pictures were clearly from a few years ago and not current.
Finally, a member of our party is 82. She stayed on the ground floor, however the steps leading into the cottage are very high and were a challenge for her. People with disabilities should be aware of this.
