Is it too early to book next summer’s getaway?
Winter hasn’t even arrived, but that’s not stopping me from scheming next summer’s getaways already. American Beech has caught my eye in a major way, and this is why.
Opened in August, this five-bedroom hotel sits in the quaint town of Greenport, NY, just one short ferry north of Shelter Island. Traditionally a seafarer’s destination, in a region lined with vineyards, the North Fork of Long Island just may become the next hot spot, thanks to a Manhattan Lawyer with a vision. Brent Pelton revamped the property, originally known as Stirling Square, with the help of interiors firm BHDM and Dan Mazzarini. The aesthetic is nautical seaside, but also modern and understated.
“We looked at iconic imagery but didn’t want to beat anyone over the head with it.”
Frette linens, striped floors, rope accents, and Montauk Summer Ale behind the bar… This place has everything to tug at summer weekender’s heartstrings. But if you don’t feel like waiting until memorial day, you’ll be glad to hear that the restaurant is currently open for dinner and brunch, and—according to the New York Times—the fried chicken is “the best north of the Mason-Dixon line”. Consider our curiosity piqued.
With Montauk getting unbearably crowded, we can’t wait to check out this North Fork spot come Memorial Day!
