This North Fork Hotel Is Where All NYC Cool Girls Will Escape This Winter

There is a picturesque area of Long Island less than 100 miles of New York City that is lined with sprawling vineyards, organic farms, and quiet beaches—and no, it's not the Hamptons. Unlike its cousin to the south, the North Fork of the island is quieter and more understated, but it's not any less quaint. Lately, it's been going through somewhat of a revival. Enter Sound View: the latest property to land in the sleepy fishing town of Greenport, New York. Still untainted by swarming tourist crowds and the infrastructure that often comes along with them, the historic enclave is not short of great vintage shopping or farm-to-table restaurants.

Sound View might be a newcomer to the design hotel scene, but the space is well established. The 1953 property was recently renovated by Eagle Point Hotel Partners and designed by Brooklyn-based firm Studio Tack (of Scribner's Catskills Lodge fame) and is reminiscent of the golden era of motels with touches of New England, modernism, and nautical undertones that nod to the town's fishing and boating history. One could argue that the property—open year-round—is even better in the off-season when there is little more to do but to watch the wild ocean waves from the comfort of a cozy sofa with a cocktail in hand. If you agree, take a look at the newly opened Sound View hotel, and book a quick fall getaway before every New Yorker flocks there.
