Tucked between sleepy Main Street and Central Avenue in Greenport, the newly opened Gallery Hotel is an eclectic jewel box of a boutique property. Though the exterior of the shingle-style building has preserved the town’s old whaling port charm, the inside daringly breaks from that tradition, exuding a colorful South Beach meets Mediterranean feel. Expect vibrant abstract paintings, funky map art and summery mixed pattern furnishings against stark white walls. Select antiques nod to Greenport’s heritage, while the bold decor (a candy stripe couch here, fun neon wall art there) suggests a whimsical tropical influence.
Bed and Bath
The restful guestrooms temper the funky aesthetic of the common areas with calming tones that recall sea and sand: eggshell, teal and seafoam green. Oak floors, natural fiber furnishings and crisp white bed linens give the rooms a barefoot cottage vibe, while the bathrooms are understated, with rainfall showers and Philosophy bath products.
Rise early to enjoy the continental breakfast spread — Greek yogurt, pastries, a variety of fruit, sandwiches and cappuccino — in the hotel’s sunlit café. If you prefer to eat alfresco, make your way to the lush, flower-lined garden patio, where you can kick back and relax under chic umbrellas. In the event of showers, challenge a friend to a chess match in the retro-inspired game room, or head to the movie room to catch a flick.
In the Area
Start your day by going back in time at Greenport’s sidewalk boutiques. Times Vintage, conveniently located just steps from the hotel, is packed to the gills with a vast selection of retro art, vintage clothing and antique furniture and jewelry. Across the street is Beall & Bell, a favorite antiques store among big name Hamptons designers and magazine editors looking to score unique heirlooms and period pieces. From there catch the ferry to Shelter Island and take a guided paddling tour of the isle’s protected creeks and scenic harbors through Shelter Island Kayak Tours. You’ll have worked up an appetite, so head back to Greenport and treat yourself to a feast of saffron risotto, grilled steak fiorentina and homemade pasta at the romantic, Italian-accented Caci North Fork restaurant, and don’t leave without trying their all-natural homemade gelato. End your night by chatting with locals and sipping expertly crafted cocktails and local wines at the hipster haven Brix & Rye speakeasy.
How to Get There
A charming place to stay. With only 10 rooms, you feel like your at home. Bright colors throughout, there's ample space to hang out and have your privacy, inside and out. The bed was comfortable, and the breakfast is perfect for starting your day. Breakfast lasts until 11, so theres no rushing. Great location. Will come back again.
Went here for drinks and appetizers what a beautiful clean relaxing place. Staff were wonderful very attentive. Food was delicious, atmosphere was fantastic the garden was beautiful. Highly recommend.
Quaint, cozy, captivatingly comfortable. Can't say enough about the superb and attentive service and assistance provided by Daniel. Thank you Daniel. Location was perfect for our four-day stay; just a few short/walking blocks from waterfront. Private parking for guests in back; cozy garden, a great place to sit and enjoy cocktails or a glass of wine with friends. Just about everywhere we went on our wine-tasting crawl, we were reminded that we must try the restaurant, KonTiki, located on the premises. We will definitely book this hotel on our next stay in Greenport.
