About Laura Russell

We grew up with this lovely beach house on Peconic Bay and have enjoyed its serenity, waters, experiences, adventures and treasures over the years with family, relatives and friends of all ages. Like everyone who comes here, we are enriched and enchanted by the water, waves, winds, and ways that nature brings us closer to ourselves, others and the natural world.

Laura Russell purchased this house in 1958

Why Laura Russell chose Southampton

Here you have the best beaches in the world, and a secluded location away from it all.

A relaxing retreat in which to recharge, recreate, renew and adventure with family and friends. Glorious swimming, sailing, sunning, biking, boating, walks, water and waves right out the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming for five years now in the month of August and it is the highlight of our year, and very special for our children. They love the beach, bay and quiet safe community with a private road to ride their bikes or walk to tennis court and basketball hoop. Endless hours exploring, learning, growing and playing. A wonderful place for parents, too.

Perfect family beach house.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location right on the beach in a comfortable family house. The house feels like a comfortable, clean family home with a big open space to accommodate family dinners and lounging but the true beauty of this place is the proximity to the beach. It was so easy to go back and forth from the beach to the house without having to worry about packing lunch or driving and parking. The bay beach is great for swimming and water sports. Mostly we appreciated relaxing on the beach or on the generous deck at the house. There is plenty to do in the vicinity but we found no need to leave the house at all except for grocery shopping. Laura, the host, was communicative and very helpful. I hope to visit again soon! If you stay here you will not be disappointed!

Much needed R and R!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky with great weather - not too hot, not too cool, a fair amount of wind, and lots of nice beach days. Many delicious meals fixed on the grill and enjoyed with stunning sunsets. Already looking forward to next summer.

Our Paradise....

  • 5 of 5

The high point of the year for our family for the last seven has been staying at this beautiful beach house stunningly set on the Peconic in a secluded private neighborhood replete with tennis and basketball court, speed bumps and private lanes making it the perfect place for little kids to learn to bicycle and a pristine, gorgeous private beach for a back yard, literally, with a sun-bleached wooden walkway from awesome wraparound deck through dune-grass grass directly to the beach. Owners generously make kayak, paddleboard, bikes available, you are surrounded by protected wetlands and forested area, private lanes w/ docks/boats, amazing wildlife, the superlatives honestly don't do it justice. Truly a hidden gem.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Hands-down the most amazing place I've ever stayed at. This isn't some house you can see the water from you're actually on water!!! There is no walk to the beach your on it. Very quiet beach this is not a busy resort either. The house is beautiful and extremely clean. Fancy washer and dryer as well. Bathrooms are spotless and all the bedding looks new. To me and my wife a clean House is extremely important and this was above our expectations. To me it was heaven on earth laying down at night and hearing the gentle sound of the waves rolling in to the shore. We were very lucky with the weather and every night got to witness an amazing sunset! I would highly recommend this to families as well as people looking for a romantic getaway.
