Everyone will be on her own to get to the hotel from the airport. Any taxi or Uber will get you there. Check-in time is any time after 3 p.m., so plan to come early and do a little exploring on your own. https://www.dreamhotels.com/downtown/rooms/default-en.html

We girls have visited this winery before and can’t wait to get back to Sparkling Pointe. Their champagne is wonderful and their outdoor space just makes you say….AHHHH!
We will leave Sparkling Pointe around 4 p.m. for our hotel in Greenport. We will be staying the next 2 nights in the Greenporter Hotel. https://greenporterhotel.com/ You will have this evening to explore this cute little town and have dinner on your own.
