Deep Hollow Ranch, Montauk, NY

This is the coolest weather I have ever experienced on my birthday. Might as well take advantage and go for a beautiful horseback ride along the shore of Block Island Sound right outside your doorstep, at Deep Hollow Ranch located right off Rt. 27.
Tell Diane and Rusty Lisa di Liberto sent you.


Call ahead to reserve a trail ride.
(631) 668.2744

The oldest cattle ranch in the country and part of the Teddy Roosevelt State Park, Deep Hollow was est. in 1658. Owners Diane and Rusty Leaver run this ranch with their two children, Gardiner and Rhetta to make your summer an unforgettable one!

Here's what they have to say: "Riding at Deep Hollow Ranch is Western style, from saddles to bridles to the real cowboys and cowgirls who will be your trail guides. Groups are small and we match a rider's ability from beginners to advanced."

Private guided rides are available, too.
And don't miss a ride along the shore of Block Island Sound. Pristine, white sandy beaches, and some of the most beautiful coastline in the United States.

Don't forget to ask them about their Group Events, Pony Parties and Weddings.

Into the Woods” wittily combines the stories of old, favorite fairy tale characters, Cinderella, Jack, and Little Red Riding Hood, with the story of new fairy tale characters, the Baker and his Wife. The Baker and his Wife are a childless couple, who, in order to have a child, endeavor to break the curse cast on their family. They, humorously, wander through our familiar fairy tales as all the characters set out on their merry romp into the woods to seek “happily ever after.” Along the way they meet Rapunzel, a wicked Witch, the nasty Wolf, scary Giants, and a couple of charming Princes among others. But after the happy expected conclusions, then, they must all deal with what happens after “happily ever after.” This sophisticated, extravagant and fun-loving musical is a treat for the whole family.

Into the Woods” with music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, opened on Broadway in 1987, directed by James Lapine and starring Bernadette Peters.

Helene Leonard will direct and choreograph Stages’ production of “
Into the Woods” Musical accompaniment will be provided by Amanda Jones and James Benard. Sets are designed by Goran Petmil. Costumes are by Barbara Oldak.

A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Southampton Parents for the Arts (SPA). Tickets are $12 for children and $15 for adults. They are available in advance at Stevenson’s Toys and Games, 68 Jobs Lane, Southampton, or can be reserved by calling Stages at 631-329-1420. Tickets are also available at the door on the day of performance.
