About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The house is on 3 acres of land, secluded from the local road by a long driveway, and surrounded by woods. There is a spacious living room, a separate dining room with seating for 8, and a large, warm eat-in kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a separate, enclosed porch and veranda. Two other bedrooms have full size beds and a fourth bedroom has a pair of twin beds perfect for kids. The home has lots of light and free WiFi. Other amenities include hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, an outdoor grill, spacious lawns for kids to play or just to soak up the sun.
The house is located about 5 minutes from local beaches which border the Long Island Sound. The surf is quiet, the sand is white, and the beaches stretch for miles. Lots of watersports, including sailing, windsurfing, fishing and canoeing are available nearby. Nearby horse farms offer horseback riding and nearly every road in the village is great for bicycling.
From home, it's an easy trip to the Hamptons for shopping and ogling celebrities, Montauk Point for a deep sea fishing expedition, or Jones Beach to listen to an open air concert. There also excellent shopping at the Smithhaven Mall (about a 10 minute drive) and a host of other discount outlets that dot Long Island's North Shore. Other fun activities include in-season strawberry and pumpkin picking at local farms, browsing local yard sales on the weekends, visiting Robert Moses State Park or Fire Island for a dip in the ocean.
One of the pleasures of the Long Island experience is the local dining and shops. Multiple excellent and innovative restaurants are within a 10 minute drive and the village of Saint James, a mile away, provides easy access to everything you might need to make your stay more enjoyable, including supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, post office and ice cream shop.
This quiet home is great for a weekend or midweek getaway from the craziness of urban life. It is also perfect for a summer retreat of sand, sea, & sun. The space available for a stay is the main floor of the ranch home. There is a separate apartment in the lower level which has it's own entrance and is not for rent. There is a shared washer & dryer on the lower level.

About the owner: My husband & I live in New York City with our two daughters and love to travel.
Why the Owner Chose Head of the Harbor, NY, USA:
This house has been used as a summer home and weekend getaway in my family for years. We live in New York City (about 75 minutes away) and spend lots of weekends at the house with the kids gping to the beach or browsing the yard sales. It is an antidote to high stress living, close to both New York & the Hamptons. The huge yard is very secluded and the experience is peaceful.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spacious, secluded home that provides a relaxing weekend and summertime getaway. Easily accomodates 8 people in 4 bedrooms with 2 baths. Just a 75 minute drive or train ride from NY City. Near gentle beaches off the Long Island Sound. Short drive to the Hamptons, Montauk Point for fishing, or Jones Beach for concerts. Excellent shopping and restaurants near by.
