Fair Harbor cottage description

Summer on Fire Island is truly God's Country. The ocean is warm, the weather is perfect, the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular, the fish are jumping, the surf is sensational, clamming, wind surfing, sailing and boating are exceptional activities, the summer residents are cool, and life is beautiful.. As you can see, I love it here and spend a lot of my time in this paradise.

Fair Harbor is one of the friendliest, laid-back Fire Island communities, hosting the best restaurant and social sunset gatherings on the dock every evening. Conveniently located on the bay, in front of the bay beach, next to the Doctor's Office, near the market, pizza, restaurant, ice cream shop and yet just steps to the ocean.

Our home has 1930 cottage charm, roomy, very clean, neat and well appointed for your comfort & privacy.
