About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath In The Historic Village With Secret Garden

Set in the historic section of Greenport village, the Captain’s House, built in 1820, is an elegant and charming home ready to enjoy, especially for a summer getaway or a cozy holiday retreat. It's a 3 block walk into town and a short bike ride or drive to all the area beaches, wineries and treasure finding.

The Captain’s House is in the perfect location for those who’d like to leave the car at home and wander into town to visit shops, wine bars an restaurants. It's even a 10 minute walk from or the Jitney/train.

There are three bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with 2 twins or king and the third, a full bed), two full bathrooms, one with a washer/dryer. There are two comfortable living rooms, one with a fireplace and large color TV with Netflix and board games for all ages as well as a formal dining room with farm table for those chilly evenings better spent inside.

For the ultimate chef, the home has a fully stocked kitchen with Cuisinart appliances, a Garland stove, every utensil imaginable as well as all dining-ware. There is no need to bring sheets, towels or beach towels, it’s all here.

There is a very large and beautifully landscaped back yard complete with a 'Secret Garden' hidden in the back overlooking a zen fountain as well as a back deck with grill, outdoor garden shower and a newly added dining patio with expandable table for dining al fresco with friends and family.

With your rental agreement, can buy a short term beach pass for your stay so that you can explore all the beaches of the area easily and comfortably.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Coming from NYC, this rental was so perfect! The house itself has so much character & style, but for me the outside/back garden is magical. There's a little back deck (with great grill!) that pours out onto the garden & there's even a secluded outside dining area by the koi pond surrounded by bamboo. The kicker- it's a 3 minute walk to the center of town! We've come back each year and always look forward to the next visit to see what had changed...there's always a surprise.

Great vacation house!

We enjoyed our stay in Greenport. The house was lovely with lots of space and a great backyard! The location is perfect with a nice walk into the village and it's stores and restaurants. Also close to beaches and vineyards. Marcia was a great host and quickly answered any questions we had.

THe Captains House was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Captains House this past weekend. Not only is the house beautiful, comfortable and within easy walking distance to town, but the owner was extremely helpful. I couldn't have asked for more or anything better!

I would definitely love to stay again. Perfect!
