About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This newly renovated charming cottage is sure to spark your romantic side. Located just steps away from the Long Island Sound, the ocean breezes and breathtaking sunsets will not disappoint.

Our 1950's cottage has been immaculately renovated to generate a soothing romantic feeling. The waterfront vista is simply awe-inspiring.

The cottage has a full kitchen, queen bed and sitting area overlooking the Long Island Sound.

My mom and dad bought this property in the 50's after looking for a quite place to bring my sister and I up during our summer vacations.

The North Fork has become quite popular in the last 20 years or so but hasn't lost it's quaintness. This cottage has the best location on our family compound, all by its self on a bluff overlooking the Long Island Sound. It happens to be 'nannies' guesthouse but we love to share our 'little bit of heaven'.

So please inquire, call or email or visit our website for more information.

Beautiful place to stay with lots of things to do

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed 5 or 6 years at the cottage and I can't say enough nice things about it. Not only is it a beautiful cottage overlooking the water, but there are so many fun things to do in the area. Stephen and Donna have become friends, and we look forwarded to coming back each year, not only to enjoy the place, but to get to see them as well. The local wineries are fun and interesting and there are so many, it would take you weeks to see them all. Each one has a different story and appeal. (There are plenty of other things to do for non wine drinkers as well) It's a beautiful place, with terrific owners and unlimited fun things to do !! I recommend it highly to anyone wanting to have a great weekend, celebrate an Anniversary, or just to sip wine overlooking the water and relax. Mike Cat

Nice place, dishonest owner

  • 2 of 5

BEWARE. My husband and I rented this house for our anniversary. Queen bed/futon that sleeps two. I wrote the owner that we had a 10 mo. old & he said there's plenty of room for a pack & play. He was right. We had a local friend visit at 1:30 pm but we all spent the afternoon in town. We had a late dinner & she spent the night on the futon. I chatted w/ the owner for 45 mins in the morning, talking about how his father left him the property & about renters that come back w/their kids who crash on the floor, all as my friend said good-bye to him and I around 10am. The last day we left the place immaculate which he confirmed. I texted him to remind me of the balance & he said $X balance + $Y refundable "damage" dep. So we left 2 checks. He cashed the balance check but then A WEEK later he cashed the damage check. When I called him, his wife said there was a guest fee of $Z/nt? In later emails (b/c he would not call me back) he referred to a contract that I never read nor signed? He mentioned in the 1st email he would provide a basic contract and upon our arrival read and sign, but he never did. If this was the case why didn't he mention it during our 45 min chat the morning she left? Why didn't he provide me with the correct balance (to include the "Z") in the text when I asked for the balance due upon departure? Because he knew he was wrong. Instead he was unethical & dishonest & took the money from the damage deposit which was to be used for “damage”. I emailed him these ques & gave him every opportunity to do the right thing but instead greed prevailed. I even sent a snapshot of the text. He received a lot of money for a wknd & he wants to squabble over this, rather than leaving us w/a pleasant memory? Then he argued that we never told him we were bringing our daughter? Are you kidding me, she's 10 mos. old in a 2x3 portable crib. So I forwarded him the 1st email where I clearly state we were bringing a 10 mo. old & his response that there was plenty of room. He never even apologized or acknowledged this. To top it all off, he took ONE month to return the difference. A real class act. If you still feel compelled to book, only leave the balance & no damage deposit. Who knows what excuse he will make up to take more money from you? Thank you for ruining our memory or our first anniversary with our daughter. I just hope you claim this rental on your tax return...

Owner's Response: Future guests, As far as being reviewed as dishonest, I don’t believe this is an issue of dishonesty but more a lack of communication. I do understand there are going to be miscommunications and unintentional circumstances that arise. My guests are very important. I share my guest house at my home with folks I have never met and would love for them to have a wonderful stay. Until this time guests have never taken advantage of my relaxed and well mannered nature. Past guests are very thankful for sharing my cottage. Some have become friends and returned 4, 5, 6 times. I did send back this guest's deposit less the amount charged for having guests stay the night as clearly stated in the my rental agreement which is emailed to all guests. We were honest from the beginning of this misunderstanding. This is my side. This guest and her family arrived as planned. The second day a different car arrived with a woman and her young son. They actually came to my other house, I live and have three homes on the property. I directed her to the cottage. Ok no worries for me yet. They all had a fine time on my beach that day. That night I noticed that car never left. The next morning the car was still in my driveway. I went down to speak to them and inquire about her friends. (My rental agreement clearly states two adults maximum ) I did not confront her, but asked her why her friends stayed the night? She said it was better for her to stay after having drank some wine. At the time we were speaking, her friend was collecting all the beach toys , including a large blow-up canoe/raft. I thought to myself, “quite a lot of gear for a quick visit”. I left the conversation there as her friend packed up and left mid morning on the third day. The guest and family left later on, cottage in good condition. After some thought, many days actually, I decided to return her damage deposit less one hundred for having an extra adult stay one night. No extra charge for her friends son. Reminder … my contract clearly states "two adults”. I had no problem with the toddler, she asked initially and I said he would be ok. I sent the partial deposit to the address on their check which turned out to be a previous address. It took over one month for the post office to return it. After my stop payment, I sent another check. She has not accepted the fact that I charged her for her friend staying. I will gladly explain any other details you might need. Regards, Stephen Grzesik

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a beautiful time...

We had a great time in this cottage, the views are delicious and spending time watching the sea was all we needed.

The bed is very comfortable and the host friendly and helpful.

We would live to be back soon.

Thank you!

Happy New Year!

We loved this place! It’s near lots of great places and feels pretty quiet except for the sound of waves crashing.
