Our house is set in “wine country” North Fork, no ocean beaches - but many small bay and sound beaches. Our house sits on a saltwater inlet and has a very peaceful water view of the inlet which rises and falls with the tide.
Located in Mattituck, this cottage is less than a mile to the famous and quaint Love Lane, with its bucolic shops including the North Fork favorite Love Lane Kitchen. Oregon Road is a simple bike ride away, where you will find charming farmhouses, a sunflower farm, and North Fork favorites Shinn Estate Vineyards & Lieb Cellars. Ballie Beach is an easy 2 miles from the cottage. The cottage sits on a quiet side street along the Mattituck Inlet with direct creek access. Most residents and renters along this very creek have been returning for up to 30 years, it must be a special place. Down the road from Marina with salt-water pool, waterfront and outdoor dining including special events and live music.
The backyard facing the creek is a perfect place for relaxing or playing bocce ball. Come nightfall, stargaze and make s’mores by the fire pit. There is a folding table with table linens and chairs available if you want to have a picnic dinner under the stars. Bring your kayak or canoe (or rent them at the nearby marina), you can access the saltwater inlet from the backyard! There are also 2 stand up paddleboards available for use.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms have double beds. One bedroom has a queen bed. Linens are included (sheets/blankets/bath towels and beach towels). Double air mattress and pack n play crib are both available. There is a cozy sunroom with couches and reading chairs that comfortably seats 6, a TV with DVD player, two large floor cushions, a coffee table perfect for board games, and a selection of DVDs, books, and games. The house is equipped with wi-fi and Google Chromecast. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, dishes, pots and pans. There is a mango-wood farmhouse dining table for six people (extra chairs are available). There is an upstairs bathroom with walk-in shower and heat fan (for cool mornings), a half bath powder room downstairs, and an outdoor cedar shower.
The North Fork has the best of everything, and this cottage is the perfect charming getaway from the busy grind. It will take you back in time to when living was simple. Quiet and slow pace, relaxed and casual living, near to beaches, countless vineyards and farmstands, and great restaurants. For a slightly quicker pace, Greenport is a short 20 minute drive away. Mattituck is ideally located in the center of everything on the North Fork. We also are more than happy to provide vineyard/winery, activities, and restaurant recommendations.
The two-week rentals begin Saturday at 3pm with check-out the second Saturday at 10am. We are willing to accommodate flexible arrangements if available.
