Laurel bungalow description

Our lovely Country Cottage offers guests a taste of country life on serene Brushes Creek surrounded by nature. Enjoy bird watching, deer, rabbits and fox spotting, and the peaceful flow of the tides from any of our 3 decks or right outside the picture window in the cozy living room and master bedroom.
Enjoy fishing and kayaking from our dock in the back yard or walk 2 blocks down to the private bay beach.
This lovely property is the perfect combination of country living with modern conveniences a short drive away. Relax while watching the creek's ever changing tides, listen to the shore birds calling and join them for some fishing from the dock.
Something for everyone - in the heart of wine country - kayaking (double and single kayaks included) - fishing poles set up for your use - hiking - antiquing - biking (2 adult bikes and 2 little wheels included) on country roads and an old fashioned bicycle built for two.
Check out 'Love Lane' a 'foodies' delight - cheese shop/sweet shop/wine store and of course the 'Love Lane Kitchen' as well as the North Fork's own 'Book Hampton'. For the serious shopper Tanger Outlet - at 10 miles down the road - is a must.
Tennis and golf enthusiasts won't be disappointed either with both available a short drive away.
Explore the history of the North Fork at Hallockville Museum Farm, learn about sea life at Atlantis Aquarium, and the stars at Custer's Observatory with open viewing on Saturday nights all within 10 miles. Not to mention 'Splish Splash Water Park' another great way to spend a hot summer day! Perhaps best of all - try roasted corn at Schmitt's farm stand right down the road! Delicious restaurants for every palate.
Check out the historic mariner's community of Greenport with artsy shops and don't miss the vintage carousel - and the ferry to Shelter Island a worthy explore of its own and gateway to the famous Hampton's Beaches...

All this for you to enjoy while staying in our charming creek front country cottage with views of sleepy Brushes creek and beautiful landscaped yard, terraced gardens and enclosed outdoor hot/cold water shower.
Gramma's kitchen opens to large living room with creek front windows.

              Car: Recommended

              The perfect combination of country living a short walk to the beach and modern conveniences just down the road. Something for everyone in the heart of wine country - check out 'Love Lane' a 'foodies delight' -and further down the Main Road big box stores and for the serious shopper Tanger Outlet is a must. Nature lovers will find numerous options from birding at Husing Pond (1 1/2 miles); explore our local Peconic Bay Blvd. with a leisurely bike ride - be sure to check out the old fashioned bicycle built for 2 in the garage or the 2 other bicycles all set for your fun! A fisherman's paradise awaits with opportunity to enjoy fishing off the dock in the back yard or down at the beach or head up to Breakwater Beach and try some surf casting - fishing equipment for your use is in the garage - tennis and golf enthusiasts won't be disappointed either with both available a short drive away. Explore the history of the North Fork at Hallockville Museum Farm - Atlantis Aquarium is only 10 miles away and perhaps best of all the roasted corn at any of the local farm stands is a MUST! Schmitt's Farm stand 1 mile up the road or take the kids and head up to the North Road and check out Harbes Wild West farm stand for an extensive selection of local produce and a tasty al fresco lunch! Restaurants also abound...the carrot cake at the Jamesport Country Kitchen is well worth the calories...and for more upscale experience The Jamesport Manor, Jediah Hawkins Inn or the North Fork Table will please the most sophisticated palates...each just a short drive. Heading East be sure to check out the historic, mariner's community of Greenport with artsy shops/great restaurants and don't miss the vintage carousel. Continue East to the end of the North Fork and spectacular Orient Point State Park the BEST place for biking...great kayaking with rental and a pristine life guard protected beach. Greenport is the place to take the ferry over to Shelter Island another great place to explore have lunch or hike in Mashomack Preserve...continue around the island and take the ferry to historic Sag Harbor and check out Hamptons life at the many ocean front Hampton's Beaches and restaurants.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We love the North Fork and have rented various homes over many, many summers. When the opportunity to purchase this lovely cottage came our way we couldn't resist. We are Long Island natives who love the out of doors. My husband is a competitive kayak racer and avid fisherman. I enjoy a good book, time spent in nature, especially by the water and a delicious meal with family and friends whether prepared at home or at one of our favorite restaurants. While we currently reside in Nassau County our goal is to retire to this cottage in a few years. We're happy we can share its natural peace and beauty with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Laurel:
              The perfect combination of waterfront - with no risk of flooding! - surrounded by nature. Close enough to encourage healthy walking and biking to the magnificent Peconic Bay. Kayaking right out of our back yard and bird watching from every window and all 3 decks!

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              Wonderful outdoor space combined with cozy yet open plan cottage. We really enjoy relaxing on the deck and watching the water birds fishing in the creek. Osprey circling above - great white egrets wading through the creek at low tide - geese, ducks and swans swimming by while we watch through the large windows with great views.
