Among the storied riches of New York’s Long Island, the quieter North Fork is a true treasure. With inns, restaurants, and a few dozen wineries tucked into the 30-mile peninsula, this is Hamptons life dialed down a delightful notch.
In Greenport, a whaling town on the North Fork’s Bay side, American Beech sits just a few blocks from the harbor. Designer Dan Mazzarini has infused the former horse stable with sun-bleached elegance, a perfect setting for the downstairs market-and-sea-fresh restaurant and bar, and the five serene, whitewashed guest rooms upstairs. Rates start at $195.
