“Great Find!”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

We had originally planned on staying in Montauk or East Hampton, but decided on Greenport because the other areas were booked. We found Ruby's Cove on TripAdvisor and choose it based on the pictures and reviews. We're so happy we did.

Donna is very welcoming, helpful, and energetic!!! She made our stay such a treat. She provided suggestions on what to do, see, and places to eat.

The house is very quaint and welcoming. The room we stayed in was the turret shaped room. The bed is wonderful and the room is tastefully decorated. The bathroom is small but adequate with the vanity separate from the bathroom..

It is a very special place!!!

See seperate entries about the local restaurants we loved!!! Frisky Oyster, Noah's. Amano's, and A'Lures. Loved them all. also, Greemport Ale!.

Can't say enough about the area. We loved the Mayberrry meets witneries feel about the town. We'll be back!!!!

Stayed for 4 nights at Ruby's Cove as part of a 2 week holiday to New York from Australia. We researched a few places in Greenport and settled on Ruby's partly due to the great reviews it had already received. I can honestly report to anyone considering staying here to not hesitate and book your stay immediately. This might end up being the best decision you have made in quite a while. Put simply and not wanting to overstate too much, B and B's just don't get better than this. The house itself is magnificent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the hospitality is first class. Donna, the 'keeper of the Cove' has found a niche as the perfect host who will go above and beyond to make your stay memorable for all the right reasons. Oh and did I mention the superb breakfasts?
Stop wasting time reading any more reviews, just book your stay and be ready to write your own.
Thanks again Donna.

We recently spent a delightful weekend at Ruby's Cove. It was a college reunion of sorts. What makes Ruby's Cove so special is Donna. She goes out of her way to make sure every detail is perfect. From room flowers to meals, drinks and snacks there is always a surprise waiting. We have never had such individual attention at another B&B. Just beware she is very possesive of her kitchen! We definitely will stay again.

We all headed there for a friends wedding- Having once lived on Long Island I've never stayed at a B&B there-But I was more than pleasantly surprised! I felt like we were swept away by Ruby's Cove into a different time thanks in part to the decor and the owner Donna. It was beautiful and comfortable. Warm and welcoming. I actually could've moved in! From Donna's amazing b'fasts-french toast to eggs..and not just any french toast or eggs- Everything just seemed so good and special-
I loved enjoying my coffee on the beautiful wrap around porch...so relaxing. I can't wait to get back there...to get back "home"!

Room Tip: all rooms are great..there was one room though that had a bathroom in the hallway but if you don'...

Donna is a fantastic innkeeper, lots of good advice, can get you that hard to get reservation, and makes a killer breakfast as well. Nice porch for coffee in the morning or a drink later in the day. Walking distance to downtown and many restaurants, not to mention the brewery next door. We had a great time and would love to go back.

Room Tip: only 3 rooms, two have a bathroom in the room.

Donna takes the two Bs very seriously! The beds are amazingly comfortable so sleeping late is a must! Also, these "breakfasts" are definitely more like "brunches" or "feasts." She uses fresh ingredients to create dishes like eggs with spinach and ham, a spring vegetable medley of asparagus, corn & sweet potatoes and caramelized french toast. Unbelievable. The best part is that Ruby's Cove is super-convenient. Easy walk to town or the Shelter Island Ferry and right next door to the brewery. Yay!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the room in the round turret!
