We are a family of four who love the water and can't imagine being far from it. My extended family has been vacationing in the North Fork for years and we have always felt like it is a little piece of paradise. Beautiful, peaceful, charming and fun. I wonderful place for anyone who loves the water, food, fish, wine and relaxation. It is such a special place you can't believe is only 2 hours from NYC.
Chris purchased this house in 2010
My girls love Founders Beach since it is one of the few great sandy beaches on the North Fork. Every time we drive out and we begin to pass the farms and vineyards, our blood pressure drops and we fall into the lifestyle we love so much. We relax, eat great farm fresh vegetables and seafood and enjoy the bay breezes.
Very short walk to beach. Large property for privacy and relaxation. Fully equipped home, you'll find you don't need much. Kitchen includes all pots, pans, utensils, etc. Gas grill in backyard.
In the middle of all the vineyards and close to the great harbor town of Greenport.
4 kids, 2 cats, and a dog don't leave much time for parents to connect. This cottage rental just steps from the beach, a quick walk to town and in the heart of wine country was just what the doctor ordered! The house was very cute, well kept, and contained everything we needed for sunny breakfasts while reading the Times (remember those days?) and cozy dinners laughing over a bottle of wine picked up at our favorite Vineyard, Old Field. Great location, great house.
This was such a nice house to stay in while visiting family in the area. It was right down the street from the bay beach. The neighborhood was very quiet. The house was clean and well maintained...looks just like the pictures. The yard was beautiful! Our kids loved it. The owners were very responsive and had lots of information available. If the size of the house suits your vacation needs, then definitely book it. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy it more.
I took my parents and young son to the beach for a few days and we had a lovely time. The cottage has everything you need including an outdoor shower, great gas grill, and a comfortable and attractive living area. It gets nice bay breezes through the new windows which all have working screens. By beach cottage standards these were very comfortable beds with comfortable linens. I read some older reviews which expressed concerns about the gas stove not having low burner capacity - we didn't find that to be the case on our visit. Another review mentioned they don't have a bath which sometimes can be challenging with young children but my four year old loved taking rinse offs under the trees in the outdoor shower, which was very private, had hot water, a bench, hooks, and plenty of room to rinse and dress. The house has central air, although it was so breezy we never needed to turn it on. Although the cottage is great, the very best thing is the short stroll to the bay beach. This is a perfect kid beach - has a few swings, a slide, shaded picnic tables, no surf, and lots of nice sand. We had a great visit and hope to go back one day soon.
Perfect location. Charming home and surrounds. We couldn't have asked for more!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this lovely home. It surpassed our expectations and has everything you need for a week at the beach. The house is very clean and simply but very nicely appointed. We were there during the hottest week of the summer. The central air conditioning, the very short walk to the beach,and the great outdoor shower were a godsend. The owners are hospitable and responded quickly to all our questions. The space is perfect for a family as the beach has a life guard and playground. Four adults cam stay comfortably, and six if you don't mind a pullout couch. There are shops and restaurants very nearby. We always enjoy the ferry to Shelter Island. We heartily recommend a stay here.
Last summer while searching for some place different to stay with our family we took a recommendation from some friends and looked out in eastern Long Island. We came across a listing for North Fork that seemed to good to be true. We found a great house within walking distance to the beach. The house was very clean and the owners were helpful in providing us additional information on the area. The neighborhood was quiet with no parties or teenage kids like other rental areas. In addition, there were local places to eat that the kids enjoyed. I have nothing but good things to stay about this house and location and am already planning my return for next year.
Southold is widely considered the heart of the North Fork boasting a charming downtown with restaurants and shops. It is also in the middle of the North Fork's world class wineries and only a few miles from the historic seaport village of Greenport.
The area has wonderful produce stands, local goat cheese makers and a local supermarket to make your stay as stress free as possible
Our home is located in the sought after Southold Park District which allows you free access to the North Fork's finest private community beach. Our home is 6 houses from the beach and we provide a wagon to make it easy to take your gear back and forth.
