THE OCEAN BAY HOUSE Bay Shore’s Waterside Bed & Breakfast COVER STORY INSIDE A LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE FOR THE GREAT SOUTH BAY COASTAL COMMUNITIES.


COVER STORY

WELCOME TO

THE OCEAN BAY HOUSE B & B

BAY SHORE’S ELEGANT WATERSIDE INN FEELS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN IT LOOKS Ocean Bay House owners Greg Mogil and Drew Dvorkin are no strangers to the hospitality industry. In addition to co-owning The Linwood Restaurant & Cocktails in Bay Shore, both have substantial backgrounds and partnerships in restaurants and commercial real estate in the NYC Metro area. So what exactly inspired these two to set their sights on opening a bed & breakfast?

“As local residents, we saw a void in the hotel space,” stated Drew. “When family or friends came to visit, the only lodging options were corporate hotels catering to business travelers. There was nothing in the area that was 'boutique' offering a high level of service with attention to detail. Bay Shore is rich with history and I think people are drawn to historic areas like Bay Shore and the magnificent properties that still stand here. 69 Ocean Avenue is special. Originally built in 1886, it served as a summer cottage for affluent guests staying at The Prospect House Hotel. When the hotel was destroyed by a fire in 1903, this “summer cottage” became residential. Today the house has been transformed into a gorgeous, newly renovated bed & breakfast, restoring its former glory and original purpose. It still sits picture perfectly overlooking Watchogue Creek, and has views of some of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see.”

OCEAN BAY HOUSE GUESTS

Guests of The Ocean Bay House are not limited to Long Island locals; many have traveled from across the country as well as from around the globe.

“What’s best about The Ocean Bay House is it’s a great home base for exploring Long Island, which makes it attractive to a wide variety of visitors,” Greg explained. “We have a large tourist population in the summertime who love going to the beach, but who also enjoy the history of the area, its culture and the cuisine. Our proximity to the water attracts couples seeking romantic getaways. We’ve had the opportunity to host Navy Seals along with business travelers from Dubai. Being centrally located on the island makes us ideal for locals who have family spread between Nassau and Suffolk counties. Wedding guests make up a huge part of our market as well, which is always exciting because we love celebrating love!”

STEP INSIDE

Grand and stunning are the words that come to mind. With the exception of the one ground-level bedroom that is wheelchair accessible, the entire first floor of the house serves as a common area. The abundance of windows, many floor-to-ceiling, provide beautiful views from every room and bathe the first floor in natural

light. In addition to the dining area, the formal living room, lounge area, and conference room are all for guests to use and enjoy. There is also a wonderful space on the second floor that serves as a house favorite spot for reading, and sometimes even for Happy Hour.

“Board games and playing cards are available, and the house motto is ‘leave a book, take a book’,” said Greg. “Guests also have free rein over the extensive grounds of the property. We have a lovely patio and outdoor dining area, various decks and secluded corners to relax in, as well as a fire pit guests love to warm up beside on those cooler evenings.”

THE GUEST ROOMS

The house has nine spacious, well-appointed guest rooms and suites, all with luxurious ensuite bathrooms. A beautiful blend of old and new, each room is unique in its own way, tastefully pairing original details and antiques with updated amenities. The result is a timeless elegance with an emphasis on comfort. Plush king beds, flat screen TV’s, mini-refrigerators, individual thermostats and, of course, complimentary Wi-Fi are standard in each room for guests’ convenience. Each room is designed for 2 people. However, a few rooms contain a sleeper sofa, and those rooms can sleep up to 4. It is preferred for guests to be over the age of 14, but they are

always happy to accommodate younger visitors when able.

BREAKFAST

Breakfast at The Ocean Bay House is a three course treat, featuring hot homemade muffins, fresh fruit, and rotating seasonal house specialties. The dining area is a bright and sunny space, and during the warmer months, morning coffee and breakfast can also be enjoyed out on the front wraparound porch, or on the back patio overlooking the creek.

ON STAFF

The team behind the scenes at The Ocean Bay House is small, but mighty. Managers Elizabeth Flore and Jennifer Schiera are both native Long Islanders who come from big families with a strong love for hospitality. Their experience in the industry, along with their passions, has given them both an eye for detail that makes every guests’ stay intimate and inviting.

EVENTS

The Ocean Bay House is available for on-site events and celebrations. Smaller gatherings can be arranged in the house or on the grounds, and accommodated without any guest room rentals. Larger gatherings do require a two-night minimum, and yes, the entire home can be rented. This has become very popular with bridal parties as well as with

families for various types of reunions. Conveniently open year round, holiday dinners and gatherings, which the staff especially enjoy hosting, are also very popular.

“This property is a beautiful venue for any type of celebration. The house has been filled with a lot of love throughout the years. It is the kind of home to make memories that will last a lifetime. We love helping our guests do that through on-site events, be it an intimate birthday party or a large wedding. We love hosting baby and bridal showers, and even holiday dinners…the holidays are magical here,” Drew commented. “Since opening its doors in 2017, The Ocean Bay House has experienced countless memorable moments. Throughout the year we often reflect on how memorable the holidays are. Everyone is visiting with a smile and the air is filled with an abundance of kindness and compassion. The home feels like you’re living in a hallmark postcard, where everyone is breathing the magic in. It’s truly special, and we hope you’ll come experience it with us!”

Dear Readers, It seems like just a short while ago I was writing to you to welcome summer and what a wonderful summer it was! We were fortunate to be able to enjoy two months of sunny days. By the time you read this our flip flops will be packed away and pumpkins and mums will be piled on the porch. As I write this letter, the branches are beginning to turn scarlet and gold, and the air is getting crisp. Honestly, as much as I’m sorry to see the summer go, I always look forward the change of seasons and the natural beauty that comes with it. It’s one of the blessings of living here. It’s also something we get to anticipate and celebrate with each issue of The LIST. With Thanksgiving almost upon us, we have been reflecting on how blessed we feel to still be publishing this magazine. Times are uncertain; we never know what lies ahead, but we feel incredibly grateful to still be here. We want to take this time to thank all our readers, as well as our local businesses, for supporting us. Our team is small, but passionate about what we do, and we strive to do our best to make each issue one you will enjoy reading. We are so thankful for the privilege of being able to continue on this journey. We are very excited about having The Ocean Bay House Bed & Breakfast as our front cover and featured story in this issue. This is a Must-Read, Must-Know and Must-Go! Also inside you’ll find all-things-fall from our businesses to our recipes, inspired by this vibrant season. Time goes by so fast, yet we are able to remain tied to the history of our area by tributes that connect the present to the past. Coincidently, this was a recurring theme in this particular issue and we learned about a few local places that keep such ties. We share them with you inside. Winter is coming, so go pick pumpkins, shop at the farm stands, light the fire pit and enjoy every moment of this season! Wishing everyone a beautiful and peaceful autumn and a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving.

White roses and vintage brass candlesticks whisper rustic romance. They pair beautifully with the pine sprigs and faux pumpkins atop the burlap table runner.

The warm colors of fall become the focal point against this creamy color palette. Plenty of plush pillows and throws make this room an inviting and comfortable space for lounging.

Open cabinets styled with fall accents and vintage pieces are festive and fun. A burlap bow can carry the wreath right through the holidays – add a sprig of holly berries for a splash of color.

SAMHAL INTERIORS

Samhal Interiors is Back On Main Street in Bay Shore! Bay Shore resident and interior designer, Susan Tamberino, originally opened Samhal Interiors back in 2000. For over a decade the showroom doors opened onto Main Street in Bay Shore. The large furniture showroom, home décor store and design studio was ahead of its time, as there was nothing quite like it on the South Shore back then. The 3,500 sq. ft. space showcased multiple vignettes of interior room designs, beautifully decorated and detailed, with everything available for purchase. From furniture to decorative accent pieces, items could be purchased right off the floor or custom ordered from the design studio. In 2010, Susan relocated Samhal Interiors to a beautiful old Victorian building on Main Street in Cold Spring Harbor. This provided an opportunity for her to expand her interior design business, and Samhal Life Staging and Living, her upscale clothing boutique, were created. Today, all three businesses still share space in that same Victorian building. “Our staging business was a natural expansion,” said Susan, “but I missed the retail aspect of the business. When space opened above our studio we opened Boutique Living CSH. Blessed, both our design center and clothing boutique are still thriving up on the North Shore.”

BACK IN BAY SHORE

“About a year ago, I was hired to design the space for Kings Chop House on Main Street,” Susan continued. “Just working back in Bay Shore made me want to come back home. There has been such a wonderful revival here! Main Street is brimming with amazing restaurants and bars, but not a lot of retail. Main Street needs retail.

MUST MUSTKNOW KNOW

We carry many different lines of furniture, but mostly lines that we can get delivered quickly, like Four Hands, Bungalow 5, and Made Goods. We all know how stressed the supply chain is right now, particularly in the furniture industry. I went to the High Point Market in North Carolina, the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, and discovered manufacturers that actually have stock and inventory, which means our products can arrive in 6 weeks or sooner - very quick in this industry today. These products are very good quality as well as price points.”

DESIGN FOR LIFE

Full interior design services are available within the store. Renovations and new construction are their most common projects, but no room or project is too small for Samhal, and requests for window treatments, wallpaper, rugs and custom upholstery are popular design services people come into the store for as well. Someone can help you pick out a lamp, or redesign a full floor layout. “We want people to know that we are here to help, no matter how small their project is,” Susan told us. “Working with an interior designer is important because we are experienced in the field and can help avoid costly mistakes. We create a complete design plan prior to anything being purchased, so everything is purchased with purpose which helps clients stay on budget. Having the retail store at your fingertips is very beneficial, not to mention really fun, when selecting furniture and wallpaper. It provides a better visual. Furnishing and decorating a home, or even just a room, can be overwhelming. Space, size, light, color, patterns… so many elements need to be taken into consideration. A home should be as comfortable as it is functional and fashionable. All aspects of our company revolve around people’s lives and how they live. Creating a place that feels like a home, as opposed to a space that you just live in, is what we do best. We’ve come full circle, and I’m so happy to be back in Bay Shore. After all, it is my home.”

'Samhal South' is a smaller version of what I once had on Main Street. Our showrooms feature furniture, rugs, lighting, bedding, art and décor all for sale right off the floor. I also really wanted people to have a retail space where they can shop for home accent pieces, kitchen accessories, bath & body products, candles, gifts…items that are fun to shop for. Our design center, located downstairs, has a full selection of wall paper, fabrics, tile…anything and everything needed for a home renovation. It’s fun to browse through the store…there really is a little bit of everything.

Fashion Conscious “As consumers, we have so much power to change the world by just being careful in what we buy.” – Emma Watson

Good news…the fashion industry has started to go green! Many designers are embracing organic, recycled and faux materials, as well as changing their toxic ways. Responsible fashion is all about reducing the carbon footprint that the fashion industry has created. Ethical fashion and sustainability are quickly being adopted into this generation's set of values, and they mean business. The term “fashion conscious” has taken on a whole new meaning. Conscious fashion is part of the sustainable fashion movement that aims to transform the global textile and apparel industry. So what does this mean for fashionistas who live for changing their wardrobes with the seasons? Is it possible to feed that need yet protect the planet? Yes…but it’s time we all become more aware and selective about what we are buying. We encourage you to shop, but to be mindful of your purchases and support those in the fashion industry who are trying to save the planet while keeping us well-dressed. Here are two designers we LOVE and applaud… Sylven New York is a plant-based and vegan footwear brand designed in NYC and handcrafted in Italy. Founder Casey Dworkin was born on Earth Day, and has been dedicated to sustainable practices from a young age, often joking that sustainability is "in her blood." Named Marie Claire UK’s “Sustainable Accessory Brand of the Year,” Sylven believes in a holistic approach to reducing environmental impact without sacrificing quality, craftsmanship, or an emotional connection to design. Sylven works with nature-derived renewable materials, like vegan apple leather made from organic apple waste, linings made from wheat and corn, and insoles made from coconut husks. From recycled and plastic-free packaging, to end-life recycling programs and small batch production, Sylven New York is on a perpetual journey to minimize impact and craft a new way forward in fashion. sylvennewyork.com |

Born in the US, Doussou Traoré is a fusion of world cultures. She is of Malian heritage, and splits her time between Madagascar and Italy. Her fashion design partnership bridges art, textiles and tailoring. Malian craftsmanship is at the heart of her designs, which incorporate ancient weaving and dyeing techniques. Dyes are extracted from natural sources such as mineral mud, indigo, and other color bearing plant leaves and bark. These sources are among the least environmentally impactful, while at the same time produce high quality results. The clothing is produced in a manner that respects not only the environment, but also the people all along the supply chain. The fabrics are ethically sourced, meaning that Doussou personally selects her fabrics from suppliers reputed for the value they bring to their communities and the people they employ. The collections are timeless and edgy; and the clothing is assembled with precision by a small group of dedicated tailors. Prior to receiving her Fashion Design Certificate from the Accademia del Lusso in Rome, Italy, Doussou worked for over a decade as an Agricultural Economist Consultant for technical agencies of the United Nations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Programme. Economics remains a passion for her; in fact Doussou’s brand is motivated by the partnerships that she has built within the scope of sustainable development. doussoutraore.com |

Fitness Classes to Try Babylon Barre Our signature Barre fitness class is a hybrid workout that combines ballet-inspired movement with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training.

You may wonder “Exactly what happens on that yoga mat?” When we step onto the mat, and our bodies are faced with challenge (what the heck is downward dog?), we are faced with choices. Within the poses, we can choose selfacceptance or self-criticism. Yoga instructors are the guides that help us navigate these choices until we start to get it right, over and over again. They remind us to let go of our tension and breathe through the poses. They teach us how to surrender. And then the magic happens...we deepen our understanding of ourselves and grow more emotionally intelligent and mentally focused. The benefits ripple into all aspects of our lives - even our relationships! And, by the way, our bodies feel stronger and calmer. It’s an amazing feeling to have both in sync. Our inward journey becomes reflected in our outward life. Remember there is no such thing as “Yoga Perfect” only “Yoga Practice.” Be well, The Welcome Mat Yoga & Wellness Team

FA MILY ST YL E R ESTAU RANT CATERING FOR ALL OCCASIONS

Weekend Happy Hour Dear Friends & Loyal Customers, After 18 terrific years, and with a heavy heart, I have decided to sell Nicky’s on the Bay. New owners will be stepping in and planning to reopen next season. I want to thank every one of my customers and my dedicated staff for their support. It has been such an extraordinary experience owning, managing, and doing whatever was needed to ensure the success of the restaurant. I was truly blessed with a great staff and wonderful guests…without them I could never have enjoyed such success. Selling the restaurant was a difficult decision; it has provided me a wonderful life, spending my summers on the Great South Bay and winters in the Caribbean. But more so, it has provided me with 18 years of wonderful memories and friendships that I will forever cherish. Throughout the 18 years, Nicky’s has employed thousands of local students. I watched them work their way through college to become teachers, lawyers, nurses, and other successful professionals. It was very rewarding to me when they graduated and then came back to Nicky’s as customers to thank me for the opportunity I gave them. I could not have been more proud of so many of them. This is not goodbye, I am not retiring, so I hope our paths will cross again! I am excited to be working alongside my son, Joey, and my daughter, Christina, at Nicky’s Clam Bar next to the Fire Island Ferries. Being with my family is a wonderful blessing. I will miss the bay very much and will always be grateful for the life that it gave to my family and I.

THE LINWOOD

MUST MUSTKNOW KNOW

/thelinwood

The Linwood Hotel was established in about 1888 by

John B. Pullis. Located on the southeast corner of South Clinton Avenue and Linden Place, it was one of several South Shore LI destination hotels where travelers flocked to escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Namesake of the hotel, The Linwood Restaurant & Cocktails pays tribute to Bay Shore’s history. Well known for its exceptional food and deliciously crafted cocktails, The Linwood is also praised for its warm and friendly staff. Reminiscent of a luxury hotel, the interior is as comfortable as it is beautiful with plush velvet seating and crystal chandeliers. “We’ve taken that same 'boutique hotel' approach and applied it to the restaurant business,” stated Linwood Restaurant owner Greg Mogil, “where the highest level of service is provided without being pretentious or too expensive, and readily available to all our guests.”

MUST RECIPES KNOW

Cranberry Brie Bites A perfect appetizer for any holiday gathering. They always disappear in a matter of minutes…maybe because they are bite-sized, maybe because they're so cute, but more likely it's because of the brie. I N GR ED IEN TS

• 8 oz. tube crescent dough (or phyllo pastry dough) • Non-stick baking spray & flour • 8 oz. wheel of brie D I REC TIO N S

1. Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a minimuffin tin with baking spray. On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent dough, and pinch together seams. Cut into 24 squares. Place squares into mini-muffin tin slots. 2. Cut brie into small pieces and place inside the crescent dough. Top with a spoonful of cranberry sauce, some chopped pecans, and one small sprig of rosemary.

• 1/2 c. whole berry cranberry sauce • 1/4 c. chopped pecans • 6 sprigs of rosemary, cut into 1" pieces

3. Bake until the crescent pastry is golden, about 15 minutes. Cool for 5 – 10 minutes then serve while still warm. 4. *These can be made ahead of time: Fully assemble the bites in the muffin pan, cover and refrigerate unbaked for up to 3 days prior to baking. Alternatively, these can also be frozen for up to 2 months after they’ve been baked.

The Argyle Hotel (1882 - 1904)

A Peek into the Past

The once famous Argyle Hotel in Babylon was built in 1882 by Austin Corbin, president of both the Long Island Railroad and the Long Island Improvement Company. Set at the northern end of Argyle Lake, the fashionable Queen Anne style building was designed by New York City architect William Field & Son and erected by 88 workers in only three months! The hotel was built as one of many luxury hotels constructed in the late 19th century to accommodate wealthy summer visitors from New York City. It was sold in 1893 to William Ziegler, who made his fortune with the Royal Baking Powder Company. The grounds of the hotel included a large millpond, Blythebourne Lake, which was renamed Argyle Lake as a tribute to one of the hotel’s largest investors and town aristocrat, the heir to the Dukedom of Argyll. The hotel was exceedingly large with 300 rooms and 150 employees, but was rarely more than one-third filled. Expensive to build, the hotel was in debt. Without enough summer guests to keep the hotel open it just couldn’t survive, and its doors closed in 1897. The hotel was demolished in 1904 after nearly a decade of disuse. However, some of the original architecture from the grand structure still stands today, as it was used to build homes west of the lake in the neighborhood now known as Argyle Park. In 1921, the land that is now Argyle Park was donated to

the Village of Babylon by J. Stanley Foster, Esq., to be used for recreation. It was about this time that Babylon Village’s iconic waterfalls were built. Today Argyle Park is one of Babylon Village’s greatest assets, enjoyed by locals and visitors all year round for fishing, strolling, and playing on the children's playground. Paying homage to Babylon’s history, in 1999 The Argyle Grill and Tavern in Babylon Village was named to honor the once grand Argyle Hotel.

CENTEREACH 1 Acre Land ‘Dividable’ A native of Islip, I grew up in Bayberry Point and Islip is still my hometown. I bring my love of south shore living to all my customers and clients. Being a local resident allows me to keep my finger on the pulse of our beautiful waterfront communities. More importantly, I bring my knowledge, honesty and professionalism for navigating today’s dynamic real estate market. Enjoying 18 successful years in real estate stemmed from my strong marketing background as well as my passion for both modern and historic architecture, which our coastal communities have a balanced blend of. Having owned South Bay Water Taxi for over twenty years provided me with a broad social network and valuable knowledge of waterfront properties, including their navigational points. Taking my customers on a waterfront home tour by boat is one of the things I enjoy most. For nearly two decades I have been involved in all aspects of real-estate, from commercial to residential properties. If you are considering purchasing or selling a property in our area, call me… I can help with your future plans.
