SPRINGS

Serene and unpretentious

Welcome to Springs

 
Once a sleepy community of multi-generational fisherman, the community of Springs has become known in the art world as the cradle of abstract expressionism and has played host to some of the most acclaimed abstract artists, including legends like Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. Looking to escape the buzz of New York City, these artists and many creatives who followed them found tranquility and isolation in the quiet and understated hamlet of Springs. The area continues to appeal to those wishing to avoid crowds of vacationers and celebrity watchers. Encompassed by Three Mile Harbor, Accabonac Harbor, and Gardiner’s Bay, Springs combines long stretches of coastline and sandy beaches, nature preserves, marinas, charming neighborhoods, and an eclectic mix of sparsely scattered restaurants, stores, churches, and museums. The Springs real estate market is dominated by modest single-family homes on smaller lots surrounded by nature where a peaceful and down-to-earth way of living can be enjoyed. Homeowners can enjoy Watersports of every kind, hiking, bicycling, or simply going to the beach. Recently, there has been an influx of potential buyers looking for their slice of the region’s most serene and unpretentious paradise.

Local Lifestyle


Springs is still significantly dedicated to its roots as a fishing community and a haven for artists and creative minds. Potential homebuyers are drawn to the natural beauty of the shorelines, watersports, nature preserves, rural roadways and more affordable homes.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


Springs has a lively waterfront dining scene, a weekly farmer’s market featuring live music, art exhibitions at Ashawagh Hall, and the
Springs General Store where many locals and visitors can be found unwinding with friends. One of my favorite waterfront restaurants, with incredible sunset views, is Bostwick’s on the Harbor, a Springs staple, serving a thoughtful dinner menu filled with American favorites made using locally sourced produce. Just a short drive away is The Blend, a family-run restaurant that serves mouthwatering steaks and surf ‘n’ turf dishes in a warm, contemporary setting. And, for those searching for a no-fuss pizza joint, Springs Pizza checks all the boxes and offers delicious thick and thin crust pies to enjoy in-store or order for delivery directly to your home. Although not known as a shopping hub, Springs has some convenient retail options; the coolest being the S&S Corner Shop. It’s just the place to pick up a great cup of coffee, some delicious sandwiches and pastries, grocery items, or a unique gift from their beautiful selection of upscale home goods.

Things to Do

 
Springs offers its residents an abundance of interesting and exciting things to do no matter the season. The Pollock-Krasner House, once owned by Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, is a must-see for any art buffs interested in immersing themselves a typical 19th-century Springs farmer or fisherman home that still contains some of the furnishings and artifacts that were there during the famous couple’s lifetimes. A small barn in back of the house that served as Jackson Pollock’s studio is part of the tour as well. Nature lovers will enjoy visits to the beautiful Maidstone Park and Beach, which is the perfect location for a refreshing swim, afternoon picnic, or a friendly game of softball. Residents with dogs will appreciate

Springs Park, which allows four-legged visitors both on and off their leashes, and features a scenic, grassy space dotted with trees that offer highly appreciated shade on hot summer days. Artists and art appreciators should not miss a visit to the scenic Duck Creek Farm, which hosts a popular live music series and regular art exhibitions that draw visitors from around the county. And, for those looking to experience and support a little of Springs’ nautical flair, the annual Fisherman’s Fair is held at the Ashawagh Hall and features arts, crafts, food vendors, and a range of family-friendly entertainment.
