I recently had the pleasure of staying at Shinn Estate Farmhouse in Mattituck, New York. For two days my wife and I were in heaven. Barbara Shinn and her husband David Paige, the estate's owners, have done an incredible job making their bread and breakfast a cozy oasis. I felt like I was staying at a boutique B&B with its rustic chic decor. The rooms are tastefully decorated and I love the color scheme in each of the rooms. One of the best moments of our stay was breakfast. Since it was served at one particular time daily, guests who wanted to partake had to come down and sit at a farm style table in the kitchen. Not only was the food delicious but the table set up encouraged guest interaction. During our stay, the conversation with the other guests was lively and breakfast lasted longer than we expected both days. That was a fun way to meet new people and learn about all there's to do in the area.
The staff at the estate was great. With our stay, we received a free wine tasting and everything we sipped was worthy of purchasing. Don't expect a big sales push during the tasting. They really let your taste buds do the talking. If you stay during the week, which we did, I encourage taking the vineyard tour. It comes with a binder that contains stories that accompany makers along with way. This is a great way to learn about the Shinn's commitment to farming and will really make you appreciate the experience more.
We had such an amazing time that we're planning on going back. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the fall. Here are some photos from our stay. Some are from the Shinn Estate and others are from different wineries we visited:
