The house and lake are better than advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice. Access to the lake is 30 seconds from the house, looking east. A nice distribution of rooms. Wifi worked well -- crucial for us! Kitchen very well equipped -- we cooked dinners every night there, some of them elaborate. Everything we needed was on hand -- including garlic press! Comfortable beds. Finally, a new grill on a very nice deck. And Laura was quick with responses and spot-on with advice on shopping.

We loved this house! It has everything you need to relax, unwind, and get into nature

  • 5 of 5

The house is on a quiet street at Big Fresh Pond with a private dock, a floating dock, a kayak, and a rowboat, floats, And freshwater for a swim. The house is spacious, lovely, and perfectly stocked. We enjoyed the gas grill, the hammock for some lazy reading, and proximity to everything you need South of Route 27. Found some nice nature trails for a hike with the kids. Highly recommend this experience!

The house was beautiful, clean and roomy and very well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. The private lake access was magnificent. The water is clean warm and refreshing. The boats and rafts were icing on the cake. Loved it!

Perfection in Southampton

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Big Fresh Pond home 4 times since 2015 and it never fails to deliver. The home is both spacious and warm... The home is perfectly designed with attention to detail, down to the beautiful pillows!

It is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood on the gorgeous large pond (great for row boating, swimming, and catching frogs) but a quick drive into town and all that Southampton has to offer.

I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home to friends and family; in fact I have already done so :) It is a truly magical home.
