My family and I have been staying with Dottie for 10 years now. To us, it's not summer without our stay with Dottie at the Hampton Bays cottage -"Our home away from home"! The bay is crystal clear, calm and refreshing - and it's right there! No car to pack etc. The views of sunset on the Peconic Bay from the deck are picture perfect. The cottage is very clean and inviting with beautiful decor, comfortable beds and satelite TV. And, everything is there! We don't even have to bring beach towels! My personal favorite is the outdoor shower. After a fun filled day of kayaking, swimming, beach combing and clamming, the warm water of the outdoor shower is so refreshing and delicious. And talk about delicious, the kitchen is fully equipped to whip up a seven course meal, and the grill is always ready to go. It's always fun to end the evening with some smores at the nice and cozy fire pit. However, if spending the day or night out is more to your liking, the town of Hampton Bays has plenty of wonderful restaurants, shops, ocean beaches, parks, movie theatres and places of worship all within a few miles of the cottage. And if you LOVE to shop, the Tangers Outlets are just a few towns away!
