If exploring all downtown Greenport has to offer is a top priority when you vacation on the North Fork, shack up at Ruby’s Cove Bed and Breakfast is a great option.

Located “127 steps to Main Street,” the Bay Avenue B&B is in walking distance to all the village’s boutiques and critically acclaimed restaurants — and Greenport Harbor Brewery Co.’s tasting room is literally around the corner.

Beaches and wineries are also a short drive away, but cars really aren’t a necessity since the Ruby’s Cove provides bikes for all of its guests.

“I fell in love with Greenport while riding my bike,” said owner Donna Gruber, who moved to Greenport and immediately opened the B&B after a visit to the village in 2009. “I want other people to do that too. This [B&B] is for youthful minded people of all ages that want to jump on a bike and ride around or get out to the restaurants.”
