Cranberry Hole Road is immediately adjacent to Napeague Bay beaches and NY State parkland dunes. Excellent recreational activities including swimming and boating are nearby on Napeague Bay and Atlantic Ocean beaches.
The cottage is partially developed with a mix of older summer cottages and a number of newer houses on the waterfront and on the inland, south side, of Cranberry Hole Road. The area is surrounded by a fresh water wetland system that extends along Cranberry Hole Road.
The site sits on 2.3 acres and is vegetated with dune grass and indigenous shrubs. The dwelling has no central heat or air and is suitable for seasonal use.
The dwelling contains a total of 2,520 square feet on two floors. The exterior site includes a 450 square foot screened in porch, a 234 square foot carport, and deck. Landscaping is all natural.
A Brief Story of the Lobster House
The Lobster House, built in the late 1890’s, was once the seine house that serviced as a trap fishing business. The materials used to construct the seine house were salvaged from an old fish factory building or from driftwood. The charm of the place is created by the floor to ceiling wainscoting throughout, all of varying widths and lengths; the rustic, wide floorboards; exposed beams; and large barn door on the west side. All point to its utilitarian beginnings. Nothing is plumb, square, or level.
Later, the house was used as a wholesale lobster business. The spikes found in the ceiling truss were used to hang scales for weighing fish and lobster. A small exterior cutout door, still visible but no longer serviceable, was the window used to sell lobster to customers. The upper story was renovated into living quarters for resident managers and their family. The old dock was repaired and a push car railroad track was laid, and entered the building on the northwest corner, to service a holding device to sustain live lobsters.
The lobster business ran well from the house until the U.S. began to prepare for the possibility of entering WWII. Lobsters were considered non-essential to the war effort and it was almost impossible to get supplies germane to the lobster fishery.
Since then, the seine house (now referred to as 'The Lobster House') was converted into a summer residence. The “Lobster House” has been our family summer home ever since.
