Greenes’ Guesthouse (71 Middle Rd., tel. 441/238-0834 or 441/238-2532, fax 441/238-8980, www.greenesguesthouse.com, $150 d, including full breakfast) is a family-run bed-and-breakfast in a panoramic property overlooking Jennings Bay and the Great Sound. Jean and David Greene have turned their very large house into comfortable, modern guest accommodations complete with ample lounges, a home theater area, and a large dining room for guests to enjoy the full breakfast Jean cooks up every morning (she also bakes gingerbread for afternoon tea).
The six spacious rooms, each with a private bathroom, have air-conditioning, heating, telephone, refrigerator, and cable TV. The main kitchen is open for use by guests; Jean just asks that they wash up afterwards. While the sprawling property sits just a few yards off busy Middle Road, its rear side is serene with quiet lawns, patios, and a 40-foot pool overlooking the ocean. A public bus stop is just down the main road, though Jean often transports guests to nearby shops or the Rockaway ferry dock in her car.
