Amagansett Cottage Rental Photos and Description
If you are coming to the East End to appreciate its natural splendor, you will find a comfortable launching pad here. Three hundred yards down an undiscovered road where tricycles and Radio Flyers reign, you have Napeague Bay, home to kite surfers, kayakers, birders, stand up paddlers, and landscape painters. Pull up a beach chair for sunset; take it at your own speed. This newly purchased home has a king bed in one room and a full bed in another. Wraparound decking, two indoor lounging areas – the sunken screened in porch and the living room (both with couches that convert to beds) – and striped bass biting nearby add to your peaceful days and nights. Full interior renovations were completed in mid-August 2012.

Why Tim Donahue chose Amagansett
For us, the selling point of the property is its location. Many who come and go to the Hamptons know of hotspots, crowded beaches, and Route 27. This place has none of that -- and that's why we like it. We love the screened in porch, sitting on Adirondack chairs on the front deck, and waking up to birdsong.
What makes this cottage unique
This house dates back to the simpler times when families used to come to their 'camps' and have earnest nights of board games and campfires. With our renovations, we have tried to maintain this simple spirit while adding creature comforts like an outdoor shower, a washer/dryer, a custom sectional, and a nice green lawn. Coming from an apartment in the City, we wanted a place where our daughter can splash around and discover seashells, even if this means she may sometimes eat sand.
