An elegant hamlet in western Southampton, Remsenburg is often forgotten because it lacks a central, downtown shopping area. But since it’s close to Westhampton, Eastport and Speonk, it doesn’t feel out of the way.
A historic hamlet popular with all ages
Remsenburg is a quiet, rural community with not a single stop light, uncommon even for the East End. While popular with older generations, a blue-ribbon elementary school has attracted young families to the area. Close to Moriches Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Remsenburg offers easy access to the water. Though there are a few businesses here, a quick drive to Westhampton or Eastport will be necessary to visit restaurants and shops.
From historic farmhouses to grand country homes
Remsenburg’s Main Street may have no businesses, but it has plenty of historic homes behind hedges and picket fences. The oldest homes hearken back to when cattle farmers settled here in the 1740s, but have since been renovated into country estates. Newer homes are more contemporary, with modern, clean lines. Homes start at $700,000 and go up to about $4 million for homes with access to the bay.
This popular hole in the wall in nearby Eastport offers a simple menu and is best known for amazingly fluffy pancakes.
Combining the craft beer movement with classic pub grub, this Speonk bar and restaurant is a trendy spot for dinner and a pint.
