Art and Nature Collide in Ellison Bay

For decades the tiny village of Ellison Bay, which is in the town of Liberty Grove, has attracted artists, writers, and dreamers whose influence you’ll witness strolling Main Street today. Quirky public art, galleries where the artist answers the door, and eclectic shops showcasing foreign culture all call Ellison Bay home.

This hamlet is also home to craft cocktails and classic diners, revered storekeepers, old-school supper clubs, and, to top it off, some of the most stunning views in the county. Learn more at
