Made us fall in love with the North Fork!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer staying in this lovely cottage by Founders Landing. The house is small, but perfectly sized for our family of four. The deck and yard are expansive and the location absolutely can't be beat. We loved being so close to the beach as well as being walking/biking distance to the North Fork Table and Inn, IGA, and several farmstands. Our favorite local restaurant is A Lure, a short drive away, where we open and close all of our North Fork vacations. The hosts are always gracious and informative and the house is well maintained. We would definitely recommend this house for a cozy North Fork getaway!

This is THE spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE spot!

Each summer my family ( 2 adult and 2 kids ) spend two weeks on the North Fork. The last few years we have stayed at various condos, hotels and homes, but we have now found our spot. I highly recommend this home for a few reasons :

1. The house- It is well maintained. Very clean and stocked with everything we needed from beach chairs / towels to kitchen supplies. The backyard is huge with lots of space for the kids to play. We BBQ a few nights on the back deck and it was perfect.

2. Location- Walk to the beach and walk to town. Amazing! We walked and rode our bikes everywhere including some wineries. This house is a short drive to Greenport, Shelter Island and Orient State Park. The location is ideal.

3. The Owners- Simply put they are great, very responsive if you need anything. They even gave us great tips on where to go and what to do. (rainy day activities ideas were very helpful)

We were sad to leave and cannot wait to return. Thank you for a wonderful vacation spot, it is the perfect combination of beach and country cottage.

Love this place - great location and great rental

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this place! We came last summer for a family vacation and again for a few days this Spring. The house is very clean and comfortable. There were no issues with the accommodations whatsoever. The owner (and her daughter) are very pleasant to deal with. They answered all questions, helped us connect to the Wifi, and left local restaurant menus.

The location is fantastic- near the bay beach and excellent restaurants! The neighborhood is a great place for a bike ride or a leisurely stroll. We're coming back this Summer, so we're obviously pleased with the rental. I highly recommend it!

About Hannah McCarthy & Elizabeth (Liz) McCarthy 5 1 6- 9 9 1- 8 6 9 2

There is something about being able to sit into your car and to just drive out to the North fork of Long Island.

It relaxes you and renews you the minute you see the open fields, Vineyards and the farm stands.

Make a stop on your way out, at the Winery's, Pick up something for dinner and to veg out on the back deck with a glass of wine, or take a quick walk down to the Exclusive beach at Founders Landing Beach waters edge.

We have been sharing our beach cottage for years with various close family and have now opened it up to select renters.

Give us a call and come enjoy the North Fork for a while. You will not regret your time spent here.

Hannah McCarthy & Elizabeth (Liz) McCarthy 5 1 6- 9 9 1- 8 6 9 2 purchased this house in 1985

Why Hannah McCarthy & Elizabeth (Liz) McCarthy 5 1 6- 9 9 1- 8 6 9 2 chose Southold

We love it here and we believe that you will also. The minute you reach the North Road, open the car windows and feel the stress leaves your bones.

This Southold Beach Cottage is a Minutes walk to the exclusive Founders Landing beach, this is the place to be for your summer - once you see it you will love it.

Plenty of space to lay out - sit and read that book or magazine that you have been wanting to, or just take a cat nap. Let the sun, sea and view take you away.

Many award-winning wineries, antique shops, art galleries, and many many other attractions including GOLF await you after your beach time.

ALSO for the kids the 6th largest water park Splish Splash located in Calverton, NY. On 96-acres It features 30 rides & runs from May - September. Travel Channel ranked Splish Splash the 3rd best water park in the US. and its only 30 minutes or less by car!

The surrounding area is ideal for hiking, miniature golf, fishing, sailing, restaurants, cinemas, pumpkin / apple picking and fresh vegetable farm stands.

Come for the weekend and visit all the local wineries without the worry of a long drive home. And we accommodate small pets!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Hannah and Bill,

THANK you so much for sharing your beautiful summer home. We grilled on the BBQ every night we were here and Last night we walked up to the North Fork Table and Inn - (Thank you for that great recommendation - Food was out of this world!!) WE had a fantastic time on the beach (had the entire beach to ourselves) ever day except the one day it rained. We decided to go shopping at Tanger Outlets. It was a nice ride, even in the rain.

The House was perfect for our lovely, relaxing 2 week break we needed from running our business. Quiet & serene, clean and well kept.

Thank you for meeting us to hand over the keys, being so helpful, and giving us the lay of the land.

The location of the property is great - so close to both the beach and bay. AGAIN Thank you so much :-) We will be back in the Fall!

Pulled from Coastal Living magazine:


Visit the White Flower Farm House (2845 Peconic Lane, Peconic; 631/765-2353 or, a furniture, garden, and pretty-things store, for vintage French linens, rustic garden furniture, apothecary bottles, ironstone ceramics, antique wicker baskets, and anything else you might need back home to achieve the laidback, urban-meets-country style of the North Fork. Then step next door to A Taste of the North Fork (2885 Peconic Lane, Peconic; 631/765-8760 or, a small shop showcasing local coffee, vinegars, jellies, jams, and pickles.

For many Manhattanites, a stop at Briermere Farms (4414 Sound Avenue, Riverhead; 631/722-3931 or to pick up one―at least―of its famous fresh-baked pies is a weekly ritual. You’ll see why when you enter the shop by a screened door and see the lattice-topped, crumb-topped, and golden, buttery, double-crust pies stacked on shelves. A blackboard announces the selections. It’s a warm slice of the good life, à la mode.


What began as a personal passion for a few has developed into a respectful winemaking region in recent years. With roughly 50 wine producers and 40 tasting rooms open to the public, there’s a lot for the oenophile to get excited about in North Fork. Long Island Wine Council ( provides a complete list and a map of area wineries.

North Fork is perhaps best known as a wine region for its Merlots. Standouts include those by Shinn Estate, Paumanok, and Lenz (,, and Castello di Borghese (, the oldest winery in the area, founded in 1973, has received numerous accolades and awards for its wines, including Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Meritage, and Chardonnay.
