Next Door to the Ferries to The Pines and Cherry Grove


__________ Welcome to Come As You Are Inn Rentals __________

Come As You Are Inn is situated in a convenient location - in proximity to the departure point for the Fire Island Ferries to Cherry Grove and The Pines. The house is a short walk from the Sayville Long Island Railroad Train Station, two blocks from downtown Sayville, and a brisk 20 minute walk to the Ferries! Because of allergies, dogs and cats are not welcome at "Come As You Are Inn"; and sadly, this must include service animals.

Your Hosts

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted at the door by Mark and Ari Engelhardt - your hosts. Ari is a retired chef from Manhattan who trained in the French tradition. His breadth of knowledge and appreciation for food and wine includes most styles and traditions. Mark is a classically trained musician, who continues to work as a church musician in the Anglican tradition, and performs regularly as an organ and piano recitalist.
