Laurel cottage description

Enjoy the east end of Long Island and all that it offers (beaches, farm stands, vineyards and more) conveniently from our classic summer beach cottage.

Our private summer cottage is situated in the middle of three tranquil wooded acres with over 200' of beachfront on the Great Peconic Bay. One other house shares the property, a contemporary which is right on the beach (vrbo #188488). The classic summer cottage, circa 1920's, is located in the middle of the property in a wooded glen. Follow the path past woods and beach grass to your own beautiful sandy private beach. It's less than 100 yards from the cottage with no roads to cross, and rarely a person in sight.

The cottage has a picnic table in the shady front yard and a new deck in the back off the screen porch. Inside, there is a spacious living room with cathedral ceiling, ceiling fan, comfy couches and a wood burning fireplace. Cable/TV and wireless Internet are included.

The screened porch provides a private haven on the back of the house with no visible neighbors and rarely a sound other than the birds and the breeze. It's the perfect place to read or nap. A new deck with gas grill just off the screen porch lets you cook and eat in complete privacy.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and a private bathroom with a new washer/dryer. The reading room sits between the kitchen and the screened porch and has two full-sized futons plus plenty of light for reading. Upstairs is a large dormitory type of room with a queen bed as well as three twin beds - perfect for kids or for guests.

The kitchen has a refinished hardwood floor and new appliances, sink and countertop. There is a full bathroom with a shower off the kitchen.

We allow well behaved, friendly pets.

We value peace and quiet and discourage parties and loud music. We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by an adult guardian or parent.

There is NO SMOKING permitted in the cottage.

Rentals are from May 1st thru October 15th as the Cottage is not winterized.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1921

                          About the owner: The property has been in my family since 1921 and I have spent most of my summers there. It is a magical and peaceful place. Some years ago I engaged an architect to advise about converting the cottage to a winterized home for my mom. He was speechless. He said, this is a perfect classic summer cottage. Don't change anything. You would destroy its character by converting it to a year-round home. So, we keep it as it is, with cathedral ceilings and hard wood floors, a small but serviceable kitchen, a delightfully peaceful screen porch. It is a perfect place for kids and a delightful retreat for adults. The modern world intrudes with tv, dvd player and high speed wireless internet. But otherwise, you can imagine spending summers there in the 50's as I did.
