Why Bill and Anne Froehlich chose Riverhead

The cottage has been completely renovated and updated with brand new appliances, bathroom, bedding, furniture, TV, central air-conditioning, and hard wood floors. There is off street parking on a cobble-stone driveway for 3 cars. The yard is beautifully landscaped with hydrangeas and many other local indiginous plants.

What makes this house unique

This property offers easy access to a private mile long stretch of beach as well as a private yard that is nestled behind a privet hedge. There is a blue stone patio which provides extra out door living space, with umbrellas and out door eating. You can also take a nap under the cover of the trees in the hammock. There are 2 heated outdoor showers which are great to use after a long day playing in the sand. The first floor porch has comfortable seating for relaxing and escaping from the sun. The second floor porch provides a beautiful 180 degree view of the bay and lounges for catching some rays or watching the perfect North Fork sunset.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I needed a weekend getaway from NYC and Anne's place was everything we could have dreamed of and more. We are all still raving about the place and planning another visit to North Fork next summer. The cottages were beautiful and offered plenty of space for us to enjoy everything from grilling on the patio to relaxing on the balcony. We especially loved sitting on the front porch, surrounded by flowers, enjoying the sunset. The private beach is only a few steps away and offered a quiet opportunity to lay out on the sand and get some sun. (Note: If you plan on exploring the entire North Fork area, I would recommend having your own car. We had one car but not enough room for the 8 of us, so we had some issues finding Ubers or cabs available to take us to the local wineries and our dinner reservation.)

Anne, thanks again for such a perfect weekend - we can't wait to visit again!

Perfect Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to accommodate 2 families- 4 adults and 3 teens near the beach for a long fall weekend. The rental process with Anne was so easy. She was very helpful with ferry information, restaurant suggestions, etc. Good thing we made reservations at Grana- a great Italian restaurant. The cottages had all the modern amenities but still maintained a cozy beach feel. We spent time on the hammock, walked the beach, explored farm stands near by. This is a very well maintained cottage. You definitely feel like you are on vacation.

Great place! Very nice owners :)

  • 5 of 5

We came for a last min trip with no plan, and Anne and Bill were very nice and accommodating! The cottages were in good conditions and had everything we needed. We were able to have BBQs, play board games, stargaze at night and visit wineries nearby. Oh, and did I mention how lovely it was to take outdoor shower in the summer (there was an outdoor shower room next to the main cabin). It was a great weekend staying at this place. Thank you Anne & Bill!

Wedding prep bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our son and children stayed on this property in preparation for our daughter's wedding on the north fork. What a treat! The property is one house back from the beach which is gated for safety. Everything we needed other than beach chairs was provided. We had family arriving from all over the states and this property was the meal place much of the time due to the amount of outside seating and proximity to the beach. The proximity to the wedding venue, wineries, the ferry is so close. The pick up/drop spot for the Hampton jitney is less than 2 miles away. The cottage is a special treat with its awesome views of Peconic Bay. We would recommend this property to people of all ages. There are no stairs to enter the house so it is easy even for elders. The rental process with Anne was easy and pleasant. She helped us identify the property next door for rental as well. All of his allowed us to be able to relax before the wedding. Our only suggestion is a coffee maker in the cottage so one does not need to go to he house in the early AM and wake others. We hope to return again sometime with friends.

What a treat! The houses are lovely, comfortable, and immaculate. We had four adults and three kids, and the kids loved the lawns and the beach, and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Convenient to both Mattituck and Riverhead, and lots of farm stands, pumpkin patches, vineyards, beaches very close by. Hope we can go back soon!

Great Place to Stay in North Fork

  • 5 of 5

So many great things about this property:

1. Houses are beautifully maintained

2. Everything looks, or is, brand new, including appliances.

3. Owners did not skimp on anything.

4. Central air is great!

5. Great to have two houses, gives you some space from family/company.

6. Very responsive, friendly owners.

7. Aqueboque is at the start of the North Fork so not a bad drive from NYC, and convenient to all parts of the North Fork.

8. Lots of outdoor spaces including tables with umbrellas, porch, and deck on upper level.

9. Just steps from a very nice semi-private beach with clean, clear water and soft sand.

Highly recommended.
