The Great Room
When you arrive, you’ll cross the European-style gravel courtyard and enter the double doors to our Great Room, where we’ll welcome you personally. The 1,000-square-foot Great Room is the heart of Cedar House and a hub of activity. It features gleaming wide-plank hardwood floors, trim reclaimed from the original barn, and authentic wine-themed décor. Here and throughout the building, you’ll also find wonderful paintings and prints by local artists that capture the color and character of the North Fork A versatile loft-like space, the Great Room invites recreation and conversation but also provides a peaceful space where you can relax, recharge and regroup.
The Great Room is your gateway to a great weekend, so come and go as you please, when you please.
For your enjoyment, the Great Room offers:
The Vineyard Lounge
Our more intimate Vineyard Lounge also features salvaged cedar beams and trim as well as furnishings selected just for the space. A celebration of North Fork Wine Country, the room opens onto a sunny south-facing patio and our vineyard.
Wine definitely comes with the territory at Cedar House, and the lounge is also where we invite each and every Cedar House guest (over 21) to join us for a glass of select Scarola Vineyards vintages.
We designed our dining area with an abundance of space, aiming to suit all of our guests’ needs. There are five separate dining tables to choose from and the open kitchen allows us to cook and serve you and still be an active part of your gourmet breakfast.
The dining area is also available to guests later in the day. Of course, the North Fork boasts many wonderful restaurants where you can enjoy a satisfying lunch or dinner, and we can provide recommendations. But if you prefer to relax “at home” with some local takeout, feel free to settle in at one of our tables.
With just under three acres of land, Cedar House offers a true outdoor oasis. Our main courtyard is a great place to sit and read, or you can relax on the back patio amid the natural beauty of the North Fork. The preparation and planting of our on-site vineyard will elevate your outdoor adventure and expose you to the area’s newest agricultural tradition. You can also take an educational tour that will further reveal the processes and pleasures of growing grapes. Or visit our three barns, which played active roles in the area's rich farming history.
For those who want to wander “off campus,” beautiful Laurel Lake, one of the area’s hidden gems, is a wonderful destination for a walk, jog or gentle hike. It’s less than a half-mile away, directly behind the Cedar House property, and features nature trails that are accessible from the main road.
