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.

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!
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!!!!!
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!
Couldn't Be Happier!
We were lucky enough to spend the first beautiful weekend of 2018 in this lovely property. It was absolutely perfect for us. Everyone had just enough privacy and the communal space was just what we needed. And the house is surrounded on three sides by wildlife, so the bird watching was outstanding!
Owner Shawn was the perfect host. We'll certainly be back!
Fantastic house, great host
My only regret is that I wasn't here in warmer weather to enjoy the pool! Host was refreshingly easy-going and friendly, readily available for any questions.
House was fantastic, very comfortable, just what we were looking for while staying on the North Fork. And it is right around the corner from Love Lane, which is always a destination when you are in the area for all your brunch and cheese needs :)
Highly recommend, we will be back!
Nice clean beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood
My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this place. Shawn is very prompt in responding to queries and refunding the security deposit, and very accommodating to requests. The house is clean and beautiful. The pool, ping pong, fire pit and bocci kept us entertained. The cottage in the back is a nice addition to the house and adds more options to spread out if need be. The fridge and pantry were stocked and came handy when we ran out of our beer and snacks late one night 😊. Board games came handy when weather played spoil sport, and also at nights. Overall we had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay and will definitely return whenever we plan to holiday on Long Island 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.
