About The Inn
Tapestry House (Bartlett House) was built in 1908 for New York State Assemblyman John Bartlett, a Delegate to both the 1904 and 1908 Presidential Conventions. Occupied by Assemblyman Bartlett and his wife Mary and their domestic staff, it was primarily used to host the business, political and entertainment stars of that era.
The home remained in the family for the next forty or so years. Then, for about ten years, it operated as a boarding house. Located within a five minute walk from Greenport harbor, local Mariners found it convenient to take lodging here between sea voyages. In the early 1960s, and for much of the next two decades, the house was used as a Convent by the Sisters of Charity who taught at St. Agnes elementary school, which was nearby. After the good Sisters left, the house sat awaiting its next incarnation.
Around 1982 the building was acquired by the first family to operate it as a Bed and Breakfast (B&B) Inn. Additional bathrooms, a fire sprinkler system and other safety features were added. That work created a beautiful Inn, with unique styling and of a size - 10 bedrooms with private baths - that set it apart on the North Fork's East End.
Guests come to the North Fork's East End to visit the popular vineyards and wineries, dine in the town's excellent restaurants, tour its galleries, antique shops and boutiques, sun and swim at our beaches, or improve their game at Island's End Golf and Country Club. Some of our Guests, taking a break from shipboard life, walk 5 minutes to our Bed and Breakfast (B&B) from their boats at Greenport Marina.
Others come to have reunions, business retreats, strategy sessions and other special events. Like weddings! Some of which started with a romantic getaway to the Tapestry House and Greenport's attractions.
Business travelers are also frequent visitors. While Tapestry House offers all of the comforts and services expected at a boutique hotel, the Inn also has free wireless hi-speed internet, faxing facilities, and proximity to the ferries to New London, Block Island, Shelter Island, and the Hamptons. We are a five minutes walk to the Long Island Railroad, and to the Hampton Jitney Bus Service. Both offer a relaxing 2 1/2 hour service that departs frequently for Manhattan. The LIRR terminates at Penn Station on Manhattans' West Side, and the Hampton Jitney makes stops along Third Avenue from East 39th Street to East 85th Street.
