                  Notes:

                  I'd prefer to discuss rates via phone/e-mail- The VRBO template is imprecise re: fluctuations in rates re: holidays, long weekends,extra guests. There is a cleaning fee payable in cash due upon arrival. We are flexible and happy to discuss things if you have an idea you'd like to share.

                  Farmstands with the freshest just-picked in season, fish markets and outstanding artisanal wineries.

                  Old fashioned parades, beach walks, front porches, back yard sprinklers, shade trees-- the North Fork is not pretentious and we still have more pick-up trucks than SUVs.
