About Tricia Foley

A former magazine editor and designer, author of 10 lifestyle books, I've created a wonderful retreat in this guest house next door to my main residence.

Tricia Foley purchased this house in 2009

Why Tricia Foley chose Yaphank

I love the accessibility to the city as well as the Hamptons and although this little hamlet looks very rural, it is right off the expressway and easy to take advantage of the best of Long Island beaches, antiquing, and museums. It's also easy to get to 3 airports and train stations.

What makes this house unique

Friends love visiting this property who are bird watchers, and kayakers and fishermen...

I love the quiet and beautiful old trees and the history of the community.

Welcoming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean, safe, quiet retreat. This little cottage is cozy and inviting while providing everything a traveler could need. Yaphank is a quiet town and a nice escape after a day in the city. A short drive provided plenty of shopping, outlets, restaurants, and sites to take in. This was my family's first experience with VRBO and we couldn't be happier!

The owner is fabulous- she responds quickly and even provided a Christmas tree!

Our family not only recommends this cottage to others, we hope to have a return visit.

Cute, quiet, comfortable, & clean

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice place to stay. It was simply decorated (in a good way), felt clean, and was comfortable for my family. The bedrooms are small, but were big enough for our four person family; and who hangs out in a bedroom all day anyway? There were fresh cut flowers in the master bedroom, which was a really nice touch. The spacious living area feels very open and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out be comfortable. The owner is easy to get in touch with during the stay for anything you might need, and was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

Peace and quiet at its best!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated nest of a home and the stunning outdoors made my stay into the perfect retreat from the rest of our chaotic world. A quick drive to anything I needed (stores, restaurants in the quaint village of Bellmont, a nearby full service shopping center) and lots of wholesome activities for kids made it the ideal mix of peace and convenience. The owner is a truly marvelous person who made my stay even more special. I can't reccommend this idyllic "package" enough!
