Wine trailers and vacationers of all kinds are enthused for the re-opening of what was formerly known as the Dreamers Cove Inn, a waterfront motel located in one of the North Fork’s hidden gems - Aquebogue. New owners Michael and Constantine Kontokosta, also owners of The Harbor Front Inn in Greenport, have announced in a recent release that they purchased the motel in May and immediately began renovating and refurbishing the rooms to ready themselves for the 2012 summer season. Now Michael and Constantine are ready to show off their renovation to the public just in time for the month of August.
Dreamers Cove gained the reputation as a secluded, low-key inn with spectacular views that reflected the charm and character of the North Fork for the past decade. Although the Inn underwent renovations in 2006, guests still complained about the outdated décor of their rooms and the absence of customer service. Thus, the Kontokostas came to the rescue after purchasing the establishment for a reported $1.42 million.
Michael Kontokosta explains that “The Inn has a spectacular location with an amazing beach and great views. It was a great opportunity to refurbish this place. It just needed a little TLC.” A lot of love and attention is exactly what the Inn got. All rooms feature kitchenettes, private decks, flat screen TVs with cable, iPod docks, coffee makers, private bathrooms, and wireless high-speed Internet. The bay suites differ as they accommodate their guests with a separate sitting room with direct beach access and waterfront views.
Kontokosta describes the makeover as a “cosmetic renovation,” fully altering the appearance of the motel “inside and out, from bathroom fixtures, to the windows on the wall. People will remember staying here.”
With over 4,000 square feet of property, Cove Place Inn overlooks the Peconic Bay and provides its guests with a 150-foot private beach. It’s an establishment that promotes itself as an affordable and comfortable lodging option with rates ranging from $199-$349 per night.
The Inn is fully equipped with 18 rooms that vary from classic doubles and queens, to waterfront bay suites. Guests also have access to an expansive dockside lawn complete with picnic tables, hammocks and lounge chairs for leisurely lying in the sunshine – perfect for any family function.
Merely 10 minutes away from Riverhead, Kontokosta explains that the motel is a great place to stop because of its central location. This quaint waterfront inn is located right in the heart of our popular wine country with award-winning wineries just a short cab ride away.
Along with wineries, the Inn enjoys close proximity to several other area attractions including Atlantis Marine World Aquarium, Splish Splash Water Park and the Tanger Outlet Center, making it easy to create an action-packed weekend with the family.
Kontokosta also describes the Inn as romantic providing guests with unforgettable sunsets and leisure activities such as fishing, scenic hiking, watersports and top-rated golf courses. It’s a hole-in-one!
“It’s a charming and laid back relaxing place to stay. It doesn’t have the corporate feel of other hotels in the area. I believe the people will appreciate another lodging option in the North Fork area,” Kontokosta explains.
