The Vibe: Bauhaus meets the beach.
The Area: Greenport is a sleepy town on Long Island’s North Fork where organic farms, wineries, and a charming city center make up a laidback way of life.
The DNA: Part-time resident Erik Warner saw an opportunity in the rundown motel and its enviable perch directly above the Long Island Sound. He brought in Studio Tack, which also worked on Warner’s Anvil Hotel in Jackson, Wyoming. “I promised the community I would embrace and enhance a property that had been a mainstay for decades,” Warner says. The design is inspired by 1950s and ’60s, the great American road trip and the glorification of the automobile. Besides history, the surrounding landscape plays an integral part in the design. Chamfered corners, capped columns, wooden benches, and restored vintage lighting in the lobby lounge, where guests can take in waterfront views over breakfast and cocktails, are modeled on ferries that traffic the nearby waterways.
Suite-Me-Up: Studio Tack enlisted a host of makers to craft a new collection of suites, each with two separate bedrooms, two ensuite bathrooms, a full kitchen, and an open-concept living and dining room. Creating a seamless connection to the waterfront, floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto a private porch where panoramic views offer a not-so-subtle reminder that here, the Long Island Sound is your refuge. The suite also features the ideal sunset perch: your own personal Wood-Fired Cedar Hot Tub by Forest Cooperage.
