About Filomena Lombardi

We have been living on Long Island for over 40 years. We love family and friends. Our home is always open to guests.

Filomena Lombardi purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Filomena Lombardi chose Riverhead

I purchased this home with the plan to demolish and rebuild it. After thoughtful consideration we did not want to, due to the history of this home. It is nearly 100 years we decided to renovate the home 100 percent. It was the best decision we made. The home boasts so many luxuries but maintains a cottage feel. It is clean and very well kept. We plan on keeping this property in our family because of it's historical significance and we all came to adore spending time together here. The beach is a very relaxing and curative location. We feel re-energized after spending a weekend here. We live in St James and it takes us only 30 minutes to get to our home on the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

I love many things about my home...The one thing that I enjoy most is my screened in wrap around porch. I like to spend my time watching the sunset after my long walk on the beautiful beach. We are on a private beach and it is very quiet. The sunsets are beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can not express our gratitude for this home enough. Our family had the best vacation ever. We enjoyed beautiful days on the beach then delicious dinners in town followed by bonfires on the beach. We felt like it was our home away from home. Beautifully kept with all the comforts. Cleanliness is important to us and there was nothing that I could say negative. Owners were friendly and a pleasure to work with. We will come back again!

No hot water for 4 out of 5 days! Many lights not working! Owner unresponsive and rude!

It was my daughter's wedding and it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had! I would never recommend this rental to anyone. If that wasn't bad enough they spent one of our vacations days replacing the hot water tank and we had no water at all!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our property. We were notified on Saturday evening regarding the issue of no hot water. We immediately called an emergency plumber which determined that the hot water heater had to be replaced. The Hot water heater was replaced on Monday morning, the earliest that he was able to locate and install a new hot water heater. The renters had access to hot showers via our friendly neighbors. Our home is a one bathroom home that is not intended for parties of 50 people as this renter chose to do dishonestly. There is a liimit of 15 people at our home at all times. We take pride in our home and keep it meticulously clean. All wiring was working properly at all times and continues to do so. If there is ever a problem we address it immediately, as was done in this incidence. Thank you again for choosing our home.

This is the ultimate vacation destination. Do as little or as much as you would like. You are at the center of it all. Breathtaking sunsets from the porch. Steps to the beach. Surrounded by nature. 'Napa/Sonoma Valley' of Long Island. Minutes to many vineyards. This home is meticulously cared for. Newly renovated. Clean and very quaint.
