About Deborah Winsor

I am a grade school educator and woodworker, previously having worked at residential and wooden boat restoration. The Orient house has been an ongoing labor of love and been host to many friends and families over the years. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Deborah Winsor purchased this house in 1991

Why Deborah Winsor chose North Fork

The Orient house has been a home and vacation place for our friends and family for decades. Orient is a gracious peaceful area, rich in history, quiet and relaxed,

The house was built in 1720, it's a charming historic home with a comfortable family feel: exposed oak beams, hand-numbered mortises and old wood floors and doors that speak of the craftsmen who built the house.

Charming, historic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This rustic and charming historic cottage in Orient is a magical place to stay. Just a short walk or bike ride to the beach on a road that was quiet enough for our 4 year old to ride his bike with us. The house has everything you need and we were impressed by the owner's loving efforts to restore this wonderful old home. You feel very comfortable while at the same time at one with the nature around you. Dinners on the deck in the evening watching the fireflies, blowing bubbles in the garden, finding hermit crabs on the peaceful local beach (potato beach), reading books on rainy days, strawberries and zucchini from Latham's farmstand were just a few of the highlights. Highly recommend.

Charming Historic Home in Prime North Fork Location; Ample Space for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Deb, was wonderful and easy to work with while arranging our accommodations. We loved the history of the place and it's vicinity to the vineyards and ocean. The outdoor shower, covered in blooming wisteria, was our favorite.

Perfect Summer Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a glorious vacation in Deb's house. The house is charmingly rustic and clean and well equipped with plenty of room for all and a huge backyard. We biked to many different beaches each day and feasted on the local produce, seafood and wine. The kitchen had everything a cook would want and both a gas and charcoal grill are provided. Dinners on the back porch were festive and we'll think of them as the weather turns cold. Deb is a warm, welcoming and attentive host. We all hope to return next summer.

The house is a true gem as is the property. It was clean and comfortable and had what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Deb was there to greet us on arrival. She was very accommodating and gracious host. All our needs were met. Fresh sheets clean towels beach chairs outdoor grill washer/dryer beautiful outdoor shower the list goes on and on.

We were two couples each with one infant child in the house, which was very safe and comfortable. To note, for parents, there a staircase and the master bedroom on the ground floor has a ladder. Otherwise, totally safe and wonderful.

We would love to stay here again in the future. The North Fork is a wonderful.

There are several lovely beaches within sort bike ride or driving, great for families or quiet sitting. For birders or walkers Orient and the North Fork offer miles of varied trails, and of course the water is just down the street for sea and bay kayaking, swimming, and small boat sailing.

Greenport, Shelter Island and the North Fork towns offer wonderful shopping, libraries, and activities for children. Riverhead, 30 minutes west has a great Tanger Outlet and several shopping malls, Six Flags Water Park, miniature golf, and Riverhead Motor Speedway for a fun change of pace.
