Peconic cottage description

Tranquility abounds in this enchanting, completely renovated waterfront cottage by the sea. Our charming home, which we call ''Bittersweet Cottage'', was built in 1933 and reborn in 2010. While EVERYTHING is brand new, from the floorboards to the furnishings, it still retains all the charms of yesteryear and beckons you back to a simpler place and time.
The quaint front porch welcomes you and upon opening the front door you are immediately awestruck by the incredible views that lay in front of you. With an open floor plan and a full wall of glass, the home seems to embrace you as you enter this ethereal space. The gourmet kitchen is in the back of the house and is part of the main living area, which allows the cook to enjoy the beautiful views and their company at the same time. The cozy bedroom has a queen size bed and ample storage. The sleeping loft has a queen size bed, inviting window seats, and skylights.


There is also additional hanging space downstairs. The living room has a full size sofa bed.
The '' piece de resistance'' is undoubtedly the beautiful deck. It beckons you to kick back and enjoy the breathtaking views of the water and the woodlands beyond. It is a perfect spot for coffee and a newspaper in the morning , a midafternoon nap, cocktails at sunset, or star gazing at night while roasting marshmallows. It is a true nature lovers' paradise. You can watch turtles sunning themselves on the rocks, fish jumping out of the water, osprey swooping down, and the beautiful swans floating gracefully by.
If you feel like venturing out, the beach is just a short walk up the road. There is also a local marina if you wish to rent a canoe or kayak. The areas many vineyards are just a stones throw away and we are surrounded by wonderful restaurants if you want to check out the catch of the day ( that is, if you haven't caught it yourself already - the jetty at our beach is a popular fishing spot)!
If you're looking for some action, Riverhead is just a short drive away and is known for its shopping outlets, waterslide park , aquarium, and stock car races. We are surrounded by quaint villages like Greenport, which has small town charm with a nautical flair. It also is home to many fabulous restaurants and shops. You can also hop a ferry there to Shelter Island, another beautiful destination, and just one step away from the Hamptons. Orient Point , the eastern most point on the North Fork, has gorgeous sunrises, and you can also catch a ferry there to New England . If you like to cook, don't forget to stop at some of our many farmstands and pick up some of the most amazing fruits and veggies. Let's not forget what so many people come to the North Fork for - our incredible vineyards. Wine tasting is a must!
You'll love being part of our quiet community. Our family takes great pride in our pristine home. It is an ideal home for a romantic getaway or memorable retreat . Our friends have often told us that being at our home is like being on ''golden pond.'' Bittersweet Cottage is a magical place that has given us a lifetime of indelible memories.

A little cottage by the sea,
Oh! A wondrous place to be!
