Want to wake up to fresh local duck eggs at a farmhouse that is surrounded by a vineyard? Spend the night at a working fruit farm and gather raspberries after breakfast? Bring your dog to spend the night? Stargaze from a backyard observatory?

All these adventures and more await you at bed and breakfasts and inns on the North Fork of Long Island.

Though many of the B&Bs are in handsomely restored farmhouses, they often offer the usual Wi-Fi service and other modern embellishments. Summer is, of course, high season on the East End, and many B&Bs have a two-night minimum stay on the weekends. Still, many are happy to accommodate guests for a single night, particularly during quieter times of the year.

Below are some B&Bs across the area ready to open their doors to you.
