Southold house description
The best deal on the North Fork. Enjoy 5 star hotel living as a family, with friends, or both, All in the privacy of your own home.
'Wow! Fit for a billionaire, but you don’t have to be one to experience what essentially is this private 100 acre resort.' As quoted in North Fork Weddings and South Fork Wedding website. There is no hotel or private home that can compare to what we have here for your over night stay.
This is perfect for people or families who want a vacation property or a special week away with style,elegance and extraordinary amenities.
Want something special? Consider having your friends celebrate your special day in this private sanctuary. Let the bride and groom, or families of theirs stay here for the week before the wedding and relax. Have the rehearsal dinner and brunch around the pool with views of 100 acres and sunsets that will take your breath away. Think of the photos and videos of your most important event draped by the beauty of this property. Relax with some local wine and enjoy this as if it were your own home. Why have separate lodging, eat all meals out, have no pool, no beautiful views of the water, and on your most important day rush to a facility for 5 hours only to be escorted out. Here your investment will last you a full week. You won't be disappointed!
Our family also has a 30 acre Christmas Tree Farm where we have larger events. We rent Santa's Christmas Tree Farm and store for weddings and cocktail receptions. Please inquire about this. As we only allow smaller venues at the house when you stay here.
Create a fun week, or long weekend with friends, family, religious or corporate retreat and get away from it all, Have a spa week and start with the exercise room, take a hike or run, do yoga or snow shoe on the surrounding 100 acres of nature preserves. The beauty of nature during the Winter and Spring seasons is like none you have ever seen before. Get a massage with your own personal masseuse out at the pool. Unwind in your heated jacuzzi tub or sauna followed by a steam shower in your Master Bathroom looking out to the water. Do you love to cook? Grab a cookbook or take private cooking lessons in this gourmet kitchen. The North Fork is known for it's Vineyards and most recently Breweries too. You can take a tour and visit some of the gorgeous tasting rooms while sampling the local wines and beer. Why not stay at home and have a wine tasting dinner catered by your own private chef? If the stress of work and the city is getting to you, take a bus or train out. We'll pick you up, deliver you to the house and have the house stocked with your favorite things. Thinking of getting away for the holidays? You can cut your own tree at Santa's Christmas Tree Farm a short drive away. Bring in the New Year in style. There is no better place to have your family together. Kick off your shoes and relax by one of three fireplaces and watch all the football games on any of the 9 televisions. Are you someone who can work from home? Why not do this in your own private office filled with antiques your own fireplace and surrounded by gorgeous views of the water and nature.
During the Spring, Summer and Fall enjoy the heated gunite pool which was engineered 15 feet in the air so you overlook 'heaven'. The decks have cable fencing to give the inside of the house an unobstructed view of the water and the 100 acres or nature preserves surrounding the property. When driving down your private road to the house you are greeted by a 3 HOLE PROFESSIONAL PUTTING GREEN. There is a path adjacent to the house where you can have a kayak delivered to you and row to the beach or row to your private boat mooring if you have your own boat or choose to rent one. Kayak in the gorgeous waters surrounding the house. The beach is a short bike ride away or again, a quick kayak or boat ride away. Clamming can be done off the house. Fishing is always great. Bring your bikes and tour around this beautiful area. Get on the North Ferry to Shelter Island with your bike and get lost in 'Wonderland'.
The house is an upside down house where the great room, dining, living and master soar 30 feet above the ground to maximizes the gorgeous landscape. The kitchen is also on the top floor where you are fortunate enough to be looking out to the gorgeous views while making your favorite recipes. We have three ovens (one convection) two dishwashers, Viking stove, two refrigerators and everything a professional a chef could ever need or want in this kitchen. The bottom floor with the Jr. Master, 3 more bedrooms, 4 baths, executive office, media room and workout facility all are above ground level with glass sliding doors to deck and pool. All but one room have water views, including the MASTER and the JR. MASTER baths which have windows in lieu of medicine cabinets to observe the beauty of nature. The work out room features an elliptical with satellite television to keep you abreast of the stock market and the latest breaking news. Relax and watch a movie in the media room on your leather lazy boy style chairs and overstuffed leather couch with a oversized flat screen tv, one of 9 tv's in the house. A covered two car space is under the house with an ELEVATOR up to the first and second floor for bringing in groceries, local cases of wine, luggage, children or a wheel chair for an aged or disabled person. There is plenty of room for cars on our private road and driveway. If you have your own boat, trailor or RV there is plenty of room to store these.

Back again and booked for next year's wedding!
Lisa, The house was amazing. It was so lovely to be able to sit and enjoy some wine and just be there for a while - honestly, I already didn't want to leave. The pictures can't even capture all the beauty. You made so many just absolutely perfect choices. The ceiling in the great room is GORGEOUS. The kitchen is a dream kitchen. I love all the windows everywhere and the bathrooms galore! And the island/bar in the kitchen. UH THAT WOOD! The space for the wedding is enormous. I can't gush enough about the whole thing. I can't imagine what it looks like in the summer with the pool open and the greenery..I just want to thank you for opening up your house to us like that. Megan and I had such an amazing time just being there. To be drinking a glass of wine while sitting on the sofa, watching the movement of the water out the window --- breathtaking, honestly.

We had an event with 25 people at Lisa's home on Bayview. Not only was the house as gorgeous and the views spectacular as stated, the venue was a perfect place for our business conference. Lisa provided concierge style services from food to office supplies that we needed. She also helped to arrange for people who could not sleep at the home places to stay. Bayview was used as our main "hub". Any requests we had were taken care of and provided in advance of our arrival. We are already planning our next event this spring where Lisa is facilitating a golf outing at her private country club. Practicing on her home putting green was a great treat! No doubt we will all be planning personal stays there this summer too. No reason to go to the Hamptons when you can stay at this unbelievable home and at a fraction of the price!!!

Another private event for a birthday!
As a Private Chef, I have the opportunity to prep and cook in many different kitchen and I have to say that Lisa's Kitchen is by far the one that I enjoy the most. It is beautiful, spacious and comfortable and it has all the necessary kitchen tool, a great range, 3 ovens, 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers and elegant platters and dishes. Above all the view from the kitchen and dinning room is absolutely spectacular and a wonderful place to truly enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family. 5 STARS!! Cheers, Pascal

Best Rental House Ever
Best Rental House Ever
Every year for 20 years now I have rented a house with the same group of friends for a long weekend. This is by far the best house we have ever rented. It has a fully and gorgeously stocked kitchen--I mean it has everything that you might think you want. We were 12 people (including children) and we didn't even touch 2 whole sets of dinnerware. It has 3 ovens and 2 dishwashers. It was glorious! The beds were super comfortable and luxurious. There were so many bathrooms! The kids loved the putting green and exploring the marsh and surrounding woods. The views were amazing. The living room had adequate seating for 12 people to sit around and chat or play games. There was an office downstairs away from it all for one member of our group who was on a deadline to work undisturbed. It was just perfect.

The Best Family Christmas Ever!
Lisa, Thank you for helping to make this the best family Christmas ever. The house was fantastic. We have so many fond memories at your home, cooking, hanging out by the fireplace, going on hikes, and of course a few vineyard tours. Your house is amazing and so are you!! We are already making plans to come back again for a couple of winter get aways and hopefully again next Christmas. You are the best..with many thanks.

Great house to surprise someone for their 40th!
Great house to surprise someone for their 40th!
Although I was a bit intimidated at first by renting such a well appointed house for a weekend, it was truely a pleasure. The house does have spectacular sunset views and very comfortable furniture which lends itself beautifully to kicking back and relaxing. Although it may be great in the summer, I think the winter may be the best time as there are plenty of fireplaces. There is also a beautiful kitchen which worked perfectly for our chef which Lisa recommended and really made the weekend that much more special. We also found the putting green provided for a lot of laughs.

Second time we've stayed at Lisa's beautiful home. No surprises after a long flight in from Asia (she greeted us!), other than awful JFK traffic. By all means go to either Southold Seafood market or the one across from Santa's tree farm for fresh clams, lobsters, fish etc and cook away in the outstanding kitchen, has everything you need including SHARP knives - not the cheapo Ginsu versions found at most VRBO rentals. Take a look at Google maps and explore the nearby beachside communities and shorelines, take in historic sights and lighthouses and definitely eat lunch at the small cafe on main street in Mattituck, forgot the name but specials are always on a chalkboard inside - Zagat rated. Excellent cappucinos. Sandy had no impact here. Quiet, safe and TV's throughout the home have a few hundred channels. Great outdoor grill. If out of season no need to go to the Hamptons or Shelter Island, stay put and relax!

Year Purchased: 1941
About the owner: This property has been in our family since 1941. My grandmother bought 8 acres on the water (4 of them are now mine) with her inheritance from her mother for $15,000. My brother, sister and I grew up as little kids across the street where my grandparents had an old country club as a home. In the summer we would go down to the property and take their cabin cruiser out or just sit on the boat and have lunch. My dad seeded the creek and boat basin with mussels and clams when he was growing up, which are still there. In 1997 we started working on the permits to build here and in 2005 we finally received the last permit and our dream house was built. It is our intention to keep the house in the family for many years. I have nieces and nephews that I want to have similar memories as we had growing up. We decided to rent the house to defer the costs of maintaining it as well as let other people share in the experience of what has been called 'it's own nature preserve'. The 100 acres of nature preserves have the development rights sold off so no more homes can be built on that land. We have had some of our fondest memories here. There have been weddings, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, Super Bowl parties as well as family reunions, holiday and Corporate events. I am an ordained minister and love to work with special couples to make their dreams come true. This has become a very important part of my life and it takes precedence over most things for me personally. Although the North Fork has been known to be a summer vacation destination, some of the prettiest times are in the fall, winter and spring. The house faces due South which gives the property some of the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets ever to be seen. At night the sky is so clear you can see the stars from within the house. We welcome you to 'A World of Paradise at Bayview'. I'm told over and over again, 'Thank you for sharing this amazing gift with us Lisa'.
Why the Owner Chose Southold:
My family has been visiting or living in Southold since 1941. My grandparents had a summer house here commuting from Jackson Heights Queens where my grandparents owned, cooked and ran a local diner. Their photo in the diner is in the our kitchen. In the late 50's they finally opened up my grandfather's law practice and moved out here permanently with my dad . My dad retired from commercial real estate with Mc Donald's and opened up his own real estate office here with my mom. Our family grew and my brother and sister are 'True North Forker's' from birth. A birth right I can not say I share having been born in Syracuse NY. Although I started in kindergarten here, I don't hold the same title they do. When you see the bumper stickers 'I was born on the North Fork' you will remember this and hopefully smile in knowing what that means to the 'true locals'. They are very proud of their heritage here, as I am too. There is no better place or memories than the North Fork for our family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having a cup of coffee or a glass of local wine and getting lost in the views. No matter what time of day or what time of year, good or bad weather it's always gorgeous! I love having the music playing in every room of the house, with the fire places on, lights dim and just taking it all in. Sitting at the butcher block island and talking to family and friends while cooking in the kitchen is one of my most favorite times. There are two wing back chairs in the kitchen along with a little table where people comfortably sit while I work away and they relax. The ceilings on the top floor where the great room and kitchen are vaulted with tounge and grove cedar planks. When you walk into this area and see the water and preserves draped behind it, everyone gasps for breath. It's impossible to describe the sunsets and the constellations that you can view from inside our home. There are many times we rush home from where ever we are to make it in time for a few of 'God's wonders he gave to us'! You truely have to see it to believe it. Everyone is amazed when they get here and say the pictures don't do it justice! There are few times that we get to use the house, as it rents all year long. When we are fortunate enough that the house is open we rush from Connecticut a short 2 hours away to remind us what we work so hard for. As I always say 'it's not about getting here that's difficult, it's leaving that's impossible!' There isn't one family that doesn't say 'How do you EVER leave here!' You will see what they mean when you get here. We can't wait to share it with you!!
