Fall for a Long Island Getaway

As the seasons begin to change, so does our charming property and the quaint long island town of Port Jefferson. The summer crowds will fade away, and downtown Port Jeff will erupt with vibrant fall colors and community happenings that make Danfords the perfect autumn destination for anyone who is looking to skip the crowds but still experience Port Jeff.. 


A post-Labor Day escape to Port Jefferson should be on everyone’s itinerary this fall, and there is something for everyone to enjoy on property at Danfords, and around the corner in downtown Port Jeff! 

For the outdoor enthusiast

The weather is still warm enough for a beach day and the sun will still be shining bright as the seasons change. Spend as much time as possible outside, with outdoor dining options, waterfront yoga classes, and downtown excursions! Make sure to find a local ice cream vendor, and  take a shopping spree on the charming Main Street, which offers a variety of local boutiques, art galleries, history museums, local souvenir shops, and more. Check out Danford’s guide to the Top Four Things to do in Port Jefferson to learn more. 




For the adventurer

After a Sunday Brunch at Wave Restaurant, explore the stunning harbor by sea with a traditional schooner tour aboard the Ginny Marie. A sail aboard this topsail schooner will expose you to the beauties of our harbor from a new perspective, where you can see wildlife and exquisite Long Island scenery. Port Jefferson is also home to a variety of sandy beaches, where you can walk, swim, play or relax. Head over to East or West Beach, to experience over two miles of pristine shoreline, without the crowds. 




For the foodies

Enjoy an eclectic dining experience right here at Danfords Wave Restaurant, where you can indulge in local seafood and seasonal specials. Make sure to take advantage of our happy hour too, where the bar will be serving up your go-to drinks from 4 PM and 7 PM every day. Not to mention, Wave’s Sunday Brunch option will be available all fall, where you can indulge in seafood spreads, omlet stations, and of course, bottomless mimosas!

Time to Get Cozy

For ultimate cozy comfort, reserve a room in our newly renovated boutique hotel. This accommodation offers a charming oceanfront vibe where you can watch the leaves change colors and cozy up after a long day in Port Jefferson. 


There are plenty of Danfords Events happening this fall that you won’t want to miss, and our property will have the drinks flowing, and live music playing until the end of our season. Make sure you book your Fall Getaway now, and join us in Port Jefferson!
