Had a very nice weekend stay here at the cottage!
A very nice cozy cottage with a beautiful view of Lake Montauk. If you want to see a beautiful sunset, then stay here!!
My wife, Son & I spent a week at the Janhsen's place & we could not have been more pleased. Great view of the sunsets & a perfect home base for enjoying what Montauk has to offer. We've been coming to Montauk for 20 years & this was one of our best experiences. And you can't beat the price!
Thank you so much for your kind words. You are always welcome back! For 2019 we do have a long term rental but if you wish to stay in late May or early June let us know!

Perfect lovely cottage on Lake Montauk!
I have just spent my second great 4th of July vacation at Karl and Karen's lake-view cottage. It is a wonderful getaway to the natural beauty of Montauk. It offers amazing sunsets on the lake and peace and quiet. It is just minutes from the beach, town, and wonderful restaurants. It is great for biking to the beach and the Lighthouse. It is easy to avoid the crowds in town. It is small, but perfect for 2-4 people with all the amenities. It has a great deck on 2 sides for relaxing, morning coffee, and evening barbecues. The cottage is well-appointed with everything you may need. Karl is a great host and will respond to any questions or needs in a timely manner. I can't wait to return again next summer. If you enjoy the beach and relaxing I would highly recommend staying at this lovely well maintained cottage.
Always a pleasure to have Ms. Segal and her friends stay at our cottage. Looking forward to next year!
It was okay
Nice place, good location, on the smaller side. I would probably not stay again, some of the other units in the outrigger are nicer. I would have given a solid three stars but took one off bc the communication was really poor and our damage deposit was held for almost two months for no reason. We sent numerous msg through home away that were ignored, it was very frustrating. Another reviewer had the same issue.... very suspicious, I wonder what happens to the damage deposit if people don't realize it's refundable and never pursue getting it back.
The cottage is clearly marketed as a studio and we give dimensions of the living space within the description. The cottage was completely updated in 2015. We take great pride in the decor and the layout of the cottage. We believe it is one of the top properties on Lake Montauk for its size.
As for the claim it took two months for the deposit to be returned, that is impossible, since that it has not yet been two months since this guest stayed in the cottage.
The security deposit was returned one month after the guests stay. I had believed I had authorized it to be released but it was not. The morning the guest texted me to my personal cell phone I responded and by 10am that morning I had released the security deposit with my apologies. I subsequently followed up with the guest to make sure he had received his funds in full.
still don't know why all my money was not returned .until then I will not submit my review
I pass along the cost of the cleaning to each guest of the cottage. The cleaning company I hired generally charged me what I would collect as a cleaning fee. The cleaning of the cottage after this stay required over two hours of cleaning which cost more than the cleaning fee I charged. When I inquired of the cleaning service why it took longer they said it simply took more time to get the cottage ready for the next guest. I simply withheld the funds from the security deposit that was in excess of the charge for the cottage cleaning.
I explained this in two separate emails to the guest. My responses were timely when the guest inquired of me why the funds were withheld from the security deposit.
Top notch accomadations with beautiful water views
Karl was a phenomenal host! His home was in perfect condition and had everything we needed and more! Any question we had were answered immediately and he left us undisturbed for over 10 days. We couldn't have asked for a better host and home. Looking forward to staying there again soon :)
