__________ Bed and Breakfast in Sayville __________
Come As You Are Inn is a traditional, old-world Bed and Breakfast. The Inn is conveniently located in the quaint hamlet of Sayville, just over one hour outside Manhattan Penn Station. The establishment is a c1870's period home offering three lovely appointed guest rooms each with respective private baths, as well as indoor and outdoor communal spaces. The garden, pool, and multiple seating areas are something truly to behold. The highlight of each evening includes the lighting of the fire pit and live piano bar/lounge - "your tipple, Madam."
Tucked away in a safe and welcoming neighborhood, the couple-owned and operated facility welcomes all, hence the namesake “Come As You Are.”
Kindly note: Come As You Are Inn makes customer safety a priority above all else. A stalwart member of the Sayville Chamber of Commerce, the owners of the Inn often make recommendations to their guests so as to support local businesses in Sayville and also Greater Islip.

__________ Events in Sayville __________
Nearby is famous Fire Island, an LGBTQ+ resort oasis – the Ferries are only but a brisk walk from the house (limited shuttle service is also provided daily at the Inn). But unlike Fire Island, the Inn continues to operate year-round. A retreat out the concrete jungle, Come As You Are Inn is surely a destination place and so offers the visitor a rather dramatic change of scenery but is, in fact, only a short distance from Manhattan Penn Station and JFK International Airport.
The town of Sayville offers multiple attractions, such as: a beach and state park, a bustling marina, an 18-hole public golf course/country club, a vineyard, pickleball court, miniature golf, and a cinema. Architecturally, scattered about amongst smallish quaint homes, are several grand and stately properties.
Some wonderful and exciting festivals happen in and around Sayville. You can find more details about their dates, venues, ticket prices, and other specifics here. In the meantime, here are some of the most exciting events:
The Annual Blue Oyster Festival
The Annual Blue Oyster Festival had been founded back in 2017 and since is one of the most well-loved, local events in the Greater Islip area. The briny waters of Sayville are known for harvesting the wonderful bounties of the sea and the annual Blue Oyster Festival celebrates these decadent consumable pleasures. The region-wide event features vendors from across Long Island and is a much-desired spot for foodies.
Seafood and Beer Festival
The annual Seafood and Beer Festival pairs two of the most exciting, well-loved offerings found in the region, e.g. craft beers, microbrews, and ciders alongside the most mouthwatering seafood.
Fall Family Festival
Is Autumn not a lovely season? The vibrant colors of the foliage barely clinging upon branches of trees ultimately creating a blanket bed upon the ground? The crisp air, the smell of warm cider, candied apples comprise just a few of many autumnal treats you'll find. This annual event is a highly anticipated celebration for all comers.
