By the early twentieth century, the coastal bays of the North Fork were filled with new and enterprising hostelries. From the Miamogue and the Great Peconic Bay House in Jamesport to the Clark House and Wyandank in Greenport, the area offered some of the finest accommodations outside New York City. In this comprehensive collection of images, historians Geoffrey Fleming and Amy Folk highlight the industry that has supported life on the North Fork for over 350 years. From the John Budd House- an enduring example of seventeenth-century English architecture in America- to the contemporary bed-and-breakfasts that offer visitors a charming respite, this book captures the essence of a region beloved by generations of vacationers and residents alike.
