About Sound View Greenport:

Ideally situated on a private beach overlooking the Long Island Sound, Sound View Greenport will transport you back to a time of simple pleasures: sun and surf just steps away, fresh food flavored by the salt air, and panoramic sunsets over breaking waves. Located less than 100 miles from New York City on the North Fork of Long Island, this idyllic property evokes the timeless spirit of a classic seaside resort.

Every room opens directly onto a waterfront deck, where you can enjoy one of our renowned local wines while taking in the sunset. The Halyard Restaurant features inventive takes on classic dishes, using the freshest local ingredients. The fresh seafood and produce are all sourced from the North Fork and Atlantic Seaboard.

The property is a short bike ride or drive from a variety of authentic North Fork experiences, including the village shops of historic Greenport, several award-winning vineyards, local farms offering freshly picked delights, and much more.
