Our Story

A Look Back

The grand residence at the base of Mattituck Inlet christened Windamere in 1890, opened its doors to summer guests at the dawn of the twentieth century as the North Fork became a sought-after destination for city dwellers. Visitors were in for a treat at the lofty rate of $7 per week. The property boasted a dance hall with a piano, a tennis court, a bowling alley, and a fine dock built for excursions. The lush and bountiful grounds were graced by a gentle wind flowing down the creek, and magnificent sunsets were presented nightly over the inlet. Windamere was known for delightful entertainment for guests and neighboring yacht clubs, most notably a 500-person singing society arriving by train for a midsummer performance on the great lawn.
