Although it was off season this little gem was the perfect home base to explore LI's beaches and wineries. Before setting out we enjoyed a delicious breakfast which included the daily egg scramble, fresh squeezed OJ, homemade pastries and Greek yogurt parfaits served in mason jars. The Brandenburg concerto played in the background while we read the NY times before...
