I have had the pleasure of staying at Suzanne's beautiful Bellport home three times now; a calm and peaceful retreat only 2 hours away from the hustle and bustle of New York City.
Easy to get to by car or by train to Patchogue or Bellport stations. I have done both. The house is a short taxi ride from the train and within 10 minutes walking distance from the bay (where you take the ferry to the beach). You can easily walk in and out of the village, to the numerous great restaurants Bellport has to offer and the supermarket is just around the corner. Very convenient. The kitchen is great, fully equipped and I've cooked and dined in several times.
In the summer Bellport is quite a destination so there is a great atmosphere. It's like the Hamptons without the pretense. I have been to the Hamptons several times too and I MUCH prefer Bellport. Working in fashion in the city I like to escape during the summer and Bellport has everything to offer; a stunning beach, beautiful bay for sailing etc, a quaint village with nice shops and great restaurants.
Suzanne's house is beautiful. Light, airy, extremely tastefully decorated and tranquil. Set aback from the road behind an orchard means there is a lot of privacy and peace. I love sitting on the porch of an evening, or you can barbecue on the deck in the garden.
A perfect retreat for families, small group of friends or a romantic weekend getaway. I highly recommend all this gem of a property has to offer.
