This ranch house is beautifully located on a freshwater lake in the heart of Long Island's wine country, just minutes from the beach. Enjoy abundant bird life in a garden setting. The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking or canoeing. Swimming in Long Island Sound is just six blocks away at Kenney's Beach. Barbecue and dine in the spacious backyard with a sunset view of the lake. Stargaze with no interfering city street lights. House has two bedrooms and a sofa bed accommodating up to six people, a large ranch-style kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker, wifi internet access, and a TV, DVD and VCR. Pets allowed with prior approval and signed pet agreement.
This beautifully landscaped property is one half acre in size with wooded and open areas and a private bulkheaded lakefront. It is ideal for families with young children who like to explore. The house comes completely furnished, with the exception of towels and linens.
Just down the road at the end of the lake is Peconic Dunes Camp, a summer camp operated by Suffolk County. The village of Southold is just a five minute drive away, as well as 20 of the North Fork's finest wineries. Other local visitor attractions include the historic port villiage of Greenport, Horton's Point Lighthouse, and Goldsmith's Inlet County Park.
I have enjoyed this property as a summer vacation home all of my life, and I now enjoy sharing with others who have yet to experience the rural pleasures of the North Fork.
Lawrence Currie purchased this house in 1957
This property is in an idyllic garden setting on the edge of Great Pond. In the morning you wake to the sounds of birds all around you and see the sparkling lake out of your kitchen window. In the evenings there are fabulous sunsets to the West over the lake and at night there is perfect stargazing with no disturbances of neighboring street lights.
What makes this property unique is its large size (1/2 acre+) and the large variety of natural environments it offers. Surrounding the house are trees, shrubs, and perennials of all kinds and further away from the house there are open and wooded areas with an abundance of other native and unusual introduced trees. At the water's edge, there are no neighbors to either side, giving you your own private views of Great Pond and yet another unique natural environment.
My family stayed here and absolutely loved the privacy ,peace and serenity of this natural setting. It really was like a step back in time....something very rare in Long Island these days.
We daily went for long walks or sat at the beach which is an 8 minute walk away. Our grandaughter was entralled with the swans and I just loved the flowering shrubs. The house was clean and neat. If you are looking for glitz this is not the place for you but if you want spectular views and proximity to Greenport or the Hamptons,this is a great place to stay.
I would love to stay up there again soon.
My family stayed in this house in the end of July 2011. We absolutely loved it here and had a fantastic relaxing vacation. The house is not new, but it is well maintained and cozy. It easily sleeps 4 people ( there are 2 twin beds in one bedroom and a full bed in another). The gem here is not the house though, but the property. It is huge, scenic and relaxing. You can play sports, enjoy a nap in a hammoc (bring your own) or go down to the lake right in the backyard and use your kayak or fish. The walk to the nearest beach is about 10 mins long and the beach is clean, sandy and beautiful (enjoy the sunsets - they are spectacular). It is very quiet and VERY dark at night which provides a great opportunity for star gazing. If you are looking for a glam vacation - go to the Hamptons. If you just want to relax and detox from the city life - this is the place to go. Overall, this is a perfect countryside place.
If you are OK with dead bugs everywhere, an ant invasion in the kitchen, dirty dishes, pans that smell of fish, mildewed shower curtains and a bathtub that peels off what looks like latex paint, then this is the place for you. If you want a clean environment that doesn't smell like an attic and has amenities that are more recent than 1960, spend the extra money and go somewhere else.
I rented this place with my boyfriend and another couple for a weekend and we were disgusted by the place and spent as little time there as possible. The landlord lives out of state and obviously has no interest in maintaining or even cleaning this house. Don't be fooled by the "lakeside" description- it is a scummy goosepond. To sum up, it's dirty, dark, and dingy and really not worth it.
In the middle of Long Island's wine country and framed by the Great Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound, Southold offers a dazzling array of summer activities. Sailing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing are available on Great Pond and other nearby waterways. Town beaches are open to seasonal residents with parking permits. Children can be entertained at one of the summer day camps offered by the Cornell Marine Learning Center or the Peconic Dunes Camp, located just down the road. Within a five minutes' drive are some of Long Island's most celebrated wineries. Other nearby attractions include the quaint seaport village of Greenport, the Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum, and Goldsmiths Inlet County Park.
