About Shawn Barnes
Retired Air Force veteran. Looking to provide a quiet getaway for friends and family.
Shawn Barnes purchased this House in 2015
Why Shawn Barnes chose Mattituck
We fell in love with the property the first time we set eyes on it. The quiet beach just a three minute walk, the pool, deck, and cottage provide space to enjoy precious moments with friends and family. Just a short walk to Mattituck Village with coffee shops, restaurants, antiques, boutiques, and more.

House was exactly what we were looking for for our relaxing weekend with friends.
Property was clean and very cute and the pictures online were exactly what we got. The owner Shawn was very nice and responsive when he needed to speak with him. The house is close to town and in a very cute neighborhood. It slept 6 of us comfortably and we really enjoyed our time there.
Like a Summer Resort without all the extra guests!
Marie had a wonderful time at your property. The property and the grounds were well-maintained and the pool was much larger than we had anticipated. The house was very clean and the master bed was extra large and so comfortable. We also enjoyed the local restaurants- especially Case's Place and Legends. Shawn was especially helpful with any questions we had. We hope to be back next summer!
And we hope we can host you again next summer!
Well-stocked, comfy, spacious and central
Our family stayed a week and enjoyed all that the house has to offer: pool, bocce, ping pong and sandy beach nearby. The main house, cottage and outdoor spaces gave us room to spread out. It’s within a 5 minute drive to Love Lane and Mattituck Market shopping area with it’s grocery, wine shop, Starbucks, restaurants and movie theaters. 7 days allowed us to explore NoFo wineries, microbreweries, farm stands, LI Aquarium and golf. We also had time to go to the Hamptons for the Atlantic beaches, Montauk Light, shopping and dining. Shawn’s a conscientious and responsive owner.
Glad you had a great time. Hope we can host you again!
Unforgettable family vacation home!
We've been vacationing on the North Fork for several years, and Shawn and Colleen's home is by far the best house we've stayed in. The pool was a lifesaver-- my kids spent about 8 hours a day swimming and then slept like logs every night. We played ping-pong in the (giant) pool house and ate a grilled dinner every night on the deck. Of course, we left the house a few times for some Magic Fountain ice cream. The grown-ups played bocce while the kids roasted marshmallows. The beach is a short walk down the road. Swimming in the Peconic Bay is delightful-- it's shallow and fairly warm, with little fish swimming everywhere. The house is beautiful, perfect for a comfortable and relaxing stay with the whole family. We definitely plan to come gain next year!
Need to find a bocci court near your home to hone those skills! Thanks for being a great guest.
Idyllic Experience, Better Than I Could Have Imagined!
Wow. This place is even lovelier than the pictures show (and the pictures are pretty beautiful!). We had such a wonderful stay at Shawn's place. It's clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Truly felt like home away from home. I'm only disappointed the weather was so terrible because the pool, bocce court, and grill would have been SO FUN. Definitely coming back to stay and taking advantage of all the house has to offer. If you have any doubts about this place: DO NOT. BOOK IT RIGHT AWAY, before someone else snags it!!!!!
Thanks, Kelly. Only wish I could control the weather. Hope to see you back again next year.
Beautiful house, lots of space, and really close to the center of Mattituck
We had a wonderful time staying at the house! Great common spaces, lots of places for people to sleep, great kitchen with lots of cutlery, and it was really conveniently located near the center of Mattituck. One slight inconvenience was that there wasn’t heat for the cottage (no fuel), and so it was a bit chilly at night, but definitely manageable. Definitely recommend others to stay at this house!
Thanks for the thoughtful review and bringing the heat situation to my attention. We've set up a regular fuel delivery schedule to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Beautiful, quiet, wooded property less than a quarter mile from a private beach and marina. Less than a mile to the center of Mattituck village. Dozens of wineries, outlet shopping, waterpark all within a few minutes drive. Away from the traffic of the Hamptons.
The town of Southold requires a minimum two-week stay for all rental properties.
