Ruby’s Cove’s location in the downtown historic district is integral to its appeal, offering guests a home base that is both charmingly residential and a frisbee’s throw away from downtown. Experience what feels like to live in an elegant, eclectic and welcoming, historic victorian home.You are within walking distance of both fine dining and casual restaurants, indoor and outdoor cocktail bars, people and boat-watching, antique stores, art galleries, boutiques, a carousel, , boat charters, convenience stores, the Shelter Island Ferry, LIRR and the Hampton Jitney. And for you beer lovers, the newly opened Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. is literally in the backyard!Whew! And as if that’s not enough, Ruby's Cove is only a short drive to over 30 wineries, gorgeous white sand and rocky beaches, and parks, farm stands and the Cross Sound Ferry. Bicycles are included with your stay and this area is spectacular for cruising around and exploring. That’s how I fell in love with this vibrant and whimsical town and we would like to share that with you.Stay at a top rated by trip advisor B&B in the wine country of LI, NY. Fabulous Queen Anne Victorian home. Great location! Brewery right next door, 40+ wineries within 30 miles, 127 steps to Main Street which means walking to restaurants, shopping and more.

Everything was was wonderful

My husband went to Ruby's Cove to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Donna is an exceptional hostess who goes above and beyond to make everything perfect. She picked us up from the Jitney and, picking up on our brain-dead workaholic gait, gave us some great and appropriate recommendations for a late Friday dinner. The morning breakfasts were superb, and we loaned a tandem bike to tour a few wineries. When we had a chance to relax back at Ruby's Cove, Donna had thoughtfully left out a wide range of drinks, snacks, reading material and games, and created the perfect atmosphere to relax and "forget about life for a while".

Perfect solo 6-day getaway from the city

5 on August 26, 2013

My 6-day vacation at Ruby’s Cove was everything I was looking for in a getaway from Manhattan, on my own: quiet, relaxing but active and fun. The house: it is really beautiful, clean and quiet. The ground floor has several wonderfully decorated living rooms and a porch where you can relax. I was worried that in an old house you can usually hear everything but this is not the case – rooms are very quiet, located at the second level (nothing on third) and I did not hear any noise from the neighbor rooms. I liked that there were no TVs in the house but a very nice relaxing music playing in the living rooms. I was also worried that I had the room that has the bathroom across the hall (it is private) but it was OK. Location: it is really one short block from the heart of the village and one min away from the water. It is very quit, very few cars passes during day and I heard none at night (really!). The host: Donna is warm and fun and overall a great host! She helped me plan each of my days there with cool insights about everything! Breakfast: Donna is an excellent cook – and I am a foodie! She prepares wonderful dishes with eggs and her French toast is - no kidding! - the best I ate. The breakfast is served at 10 am, which works well with getting up late. Or if you go for a quick swim or walk you can come back – trust me, you will want to come back and arrange your schedule so that you do not miss the breakfast! Activities: Donna helped with all kind of activities: biking (if you wanna be active you really do not need a car to get around and Donna indeed has about 12-15 bikes all type, shapes and colors– have fun trying them!), beaches, vineyards, concerts, live music, shopping, restaurants, etc. I am a big fan of the Square (30 sec away from Ruby’s), with 4 different wonderful places, all under famous chef Keith Luce.

Great place!

Have been there on a couple of occasions and really enjoyed it, The owner is a pleasure to spend time with and the house is beautifully decorated - close to water and a short walk to town. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

Went with my wife to Ruby's cove for our honeymoon. Has a new owner and renovations which has improved the overall appearance (in my opinion). We used to go when it was the Victorian Lady. The Inn keeper is friendly and an awesome cook. Small walk you are on the water or in the town of greenport...but a quiet location. A vacation well spent. Would highly recommend1
