The Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast, surrounded by the waters of the Long Island Sound and an inlet of Shelter Bay, is perched on a beautifully landscaped acre of perennial flower gardens with hammock, fish ponds and lounge chairs to relax in, overlooking all.
Our two private beaches, one on the Long Island Sound and the other on the inlet are available to guests. Our beach on the largest inlet on the North Fork, the Arshamomoque is a great spot to launch kayaks, canoes or paddle boards. Our Long Island Sound beach is less than 500 feet from the Inn, accessed by a private path and a favorite spot to watch the sunset, relaxing in Shorecrest’s own Adirondack chairs with a bottle of wine.
Built in the mid 1800’s as a summer home for a wealthy family, the Inn retains all the original grandeur and charm of those days with 10 foot ceilings, detailed moldings and woodwork and room height windows framing views of sky and sea.
The Innkeeper’s lifetime collection of antique furniture and textiles fits right in and guests enjoy a four course gourmet breakfast in the elegant dining room in Victorian style surrounded by period antiques, Venetian glass, fine art and vintage china and silver. Add to this the friendliness and great conversation provided by our interesting guests and you could not find a better way to start your day of adventure in one of the most beautiful parts of New York State’s Long Island than breakfast at the Shorecrest!
A Victorian gentleman or woman would be very much at home in this room overlooking the Long Island Sound. A queen size Mahogany sleigh bed, bow fronted 18 century dresser, leopard printed velvet Edwardian arm chairs and dark framed 19 century prints adorning the damask papered walls are some of the antique furnishings that support an authentic experience of those times in comfortable elegance. From the three, floor to ceiling windows guests can enjoy spectacular water views and sunsets to the North and the morning sun to the East. The finest and most comfortable mattress available and soft European linens complete the luxurious experience a stay in this room affords. The newly renovated en suite bathroom with shower plus flat screen TV, premium cable and WiFi provide the amenities and convenience of modern times.
