Summer Classic

The End

Montauk’s newest hotel, The Marram, is a serene beachside escape with stunning design details.  Primely situated on the famed beaches of Montauk (affectionately known as “The End” of the island) and just steps from its trendy downtown, this hotel is the perfect spot to soak up the sun and enjoy some outdoor fire pits before the season comes to a close.

Island Getaway

Fire Island is only a quick ferry ride away, but it will feel like you’ve escaped for a true island retreat.  Head to The Palms Hotel in Ocean Beach with fit-your-need accommodations perfect for either a romantic getaway or a family-friendly getaway. The hotel has beach access, private lounge space and comes complete with bikes and wagons to ensure your outdoor adventuring is at the ready.

Nautical Vibes

Looking for a North Fork adventure in the heart of Greenport? The Menhaden is a boutique hotel primely situated in the center of this maritime community. Its renovated roof deck with outdoor fireplaces overlooking Greenport Harbor is the perfect place to reminisce your day spent scouting farmer’s markets, tasting varietals, and soaking up the sun on the Sound.

Uninterrupted Water Views

If all you want from your stay is a little bit of peace, tranquility, and endless water views, the Sound View Hotel in Greenport is your destination. This North Fork hotel could not have a more ideal location for relaxing, unwinding and disconnecting from the rest of the world. Here, guests will embrace the true beauty of nature right from their sophisticated, modernist suite. Every room overlooks the Long Island Sound and features two sets of doors, one for the hotel’s path system and another for direct access to Sound View’s private beach. Visitors can also take part in the hotel’s many activities, from a chef-led farm tour to lounging by the pool or one of the many fire pits–there’s something for every kind of traveler.

Unrivaled Exclusive Elegance

Time spent unbothered is important, no one knows this fact better than the Fathoms Hotel in Port Washington. This intimate six-room boutique hotel is located on the North Shore of Long Island and overlooks the Manhasset Bay. Because of its relatively small maximum occupancy, the Fathoms Hotel offers its guests superior customer service and privacy. This serene location is just a stone’s throw away from the ever-busy NYC and provides guests with easy access to the Port Washington Water Taxi which shuttles guests to waterfront bars and restaurants. Other attractions in the area include paddleboarding, private boat charters, fishing, kayaking, and a bustling shopping scene in Downtown Port Washington.
