East Quogue House Rental Photos and Description
7 Bedroom + Office, 6 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
Fewer than two hours from NYC, this truly delightful three-story house nicknamed 'the Birdhouse' is what a Hamptons house should be. In a friendly residential neighborhood two blocks south of East Quogue village it's just a short walk to the Hampton Jitney stop and the village dock and a ten minute drive to the beaches. The house has been lovingly updated and decorated to enhance the turn of the century graceful qualities of the broad-board floors, the hand- crafted staircase, the sash windows, the transom doors, the high ceilings (some coffered), the wainscoating, and my whimsical detailing. Perfect for anyone looking for a uniquely charming and relaxing getaway. With a tennis court, pool, and outdoor seating you will never want to leave!
Info for Culture Enthusiasts: Needless to say the area is full of fun things for the culture minded. Apart from the galleries and museums there are art fairs, flea-markets, ArtHamptons art fair in July, the many events and lectures organized by the Vinyards, the renowned Author Lectures at the Quogue Library through July and August, and the many concerts and peformances throughout the Hamptons all year round. If you're feeling creative yourself you can set up a studio at the Birdhouse. Last summer I bought 100 lbs of clay from Nancy Robbins in Sag Harbor and we set up a work table outside. Then we fired the pieces in her studio. Art supplies for whatever you want to make are easily available in Riverhead--a 20 min drive away.
Info for Winery Enthusiasts: The Long Island Wine Trail is a terrific way to have fun. The various and multifarious Vineyards and Wineries organize events all-year round including food and wine Tastings, lectures, art shows, Winemaker's walks, concerts, Vinyard tours, and multi-element dinners. Most of the vinyards are a 15-25 minute drive away.
Info for Sports Enthusiasts: I wish I were sporty because the possibilities seem endless. My husband has gone deep-sea fishing with the children on a chartered boat. My sons go surfing and have had lessons at Hampton Watersports where you can get equipment and lessons in kite-surfing, wind-surfing, surfing, stand-up paddle board, sunfish sailing, and kayaking. There is waterskiing, jet-skiing, tubing, etc in nearby Shinnecock bay. My sister has rented kayaks in Riverhead and paddled the Peconic and said it was wonderful. There is horsback riding at the nearby Pony Farm in East Quogue and karate/yoga/fitness nearby in East Quogue and Westhampton.The best thing, I think, is a walk on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to tell you that we're having a delightful time in your lovely
home. Last night, we had friends over for dinner and we ate under your tree;
your pool and tennis court has kept our daughter totally occupied; she has
tried out just about every bed and room in the house (and they're all great).
Everyone who has stopped by loves it. We'd love to get back here w/
friends in the fall.
Thanks again -
