    If you have a dinghy, it’s a 5 minute ride across the Harbor basin from Stirling Harbor Marina to a public floating dock in Greenport. The dock is directly across from the small sandy peninsula at the entrance to Stirling Basin. Town is a then short walk down the street from there.

    Although Mitchell Park is quite nice & at the center of town there is no pool. Townsend, Yacht Yard and Stirling Harbor all have swimming pools and are quite close to that small sandy beach. This might be a big plus with kids!

    Our home port is Stirling Harbor. The facility is very well kept, clean and in addition to the pool and van shuttle to town it has a terrific Italian restaurant, Portobello’s (one of our favorites). There is also a big new clubhouse and a valvtech fuel dock at stirling but fuel can be $$$. There is a vineyard contacosta ( might be spelled incorrectly) which has a beautiful view of the LI Sound that’s a 10 minute walk from Stirling Harbor too.

    PM me if You need any help or local advice. Greenport is a great spot to go.

    We have been going every year to Greenport for the last 3 to 4 years.... We love it... I would def say at Mitchell park, Thats where we always stay... Then we usually go to shelter island to a restaurant called Salt... Its on the back side of the island... If they don't have any spots for dock and dine then we head over to sag... You can get a morning for a day and the guy on the tender will pick u up and drop u off... A lot cheaper then getting a slip... Its like 6 bucks a person or 20bucks unlimited... And the morning is free... Its a great deal.... And the guy is super nice with a really nice tender...

    We shoot across to Greenport from CT a couple times each year. I've stayed at Sterling, Townsend and Mitchell's.
    Now, this is just my personal opinion...

    Sterling was really clean, great pool, restaurant, and amazing bathrooms. Staff friendly and accommodating. Taking the shuttle into town was a little annoying having to depend on their driver's availability.

    Townsend has a more family feel, the pool is large with plenty of room to spread out. Cool little bar/snack shack too. The restaurant was like going back in time. Laundry and bathrooms are in need of updating. Price was right. Walk into town wasn't too bad.

    Mitchell's Park is definitely right in the middle of the action. Great view of the green and Claudio's right from your boat. No pool here which was ok for me, however, I felt that the bathrooms had a "prison" type feel with all the stainless and concrete.
    (when brother and sister come along I point them to the marina facilities)
