The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from Los Angeles, we looked for a house on the North Fork that would enable us to share time with New York relatives, relax and enjoy a peaceful, nature-filled environment that is close enough to the beach so that my children could safely walk or bike there.

We found everything we were looking for and more at this beautiful home. The house was clean, SPACIOUS and comfortable. A beautiful view from the upstairs deck of the Sound. We enjoyed watching the 4th of July fireworks from the deck!

A family that loves to cook, we were so pleased with the large kitchen that was fully stocked with every pot, kitchen appliance and utensil that one would need to cook a fabulous meal. If that were not enough, the owner, Rick, is an avid gardener who grows his own vegetables and herbs. Rick is an extremely kind and generous person (not to mention extremely responsive and pleasant to work with) and he encouraged us to help ourselves to anything in the garden that we would like.

The house is set between a large lake on one side and the Sound on the other. Both are a short walk from the house. Through Dan's Bike Rentals and Eagle's Neck Paddling Company, we were outfitted with bikes and kayaks that were delivered directly to the house (be sure to ask for kayak carriers so that you can get them to the lake).

The location of the house was perfect. Less than five minutes to Southold shops and restaurants. 15 minutes or less in either direction takes you to the charming towns of Mattituck and Greenport. Great vinyards abound in every direction. We enjoyed some terrific wines at the Macari Vineyard. Absolutely delicious!

Natural beauty + peace and quiet + beautiful sunsets + a lovely home = perfect vacation

Thanks, Rick, for everything!

Wonderful Getaway by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing vacation in this beautiful home set in an amazing locale. The house is very well laid out and perfect for entertaining with a large open plan kitchen / living room / dining room and windows that overlook the deck. We had dinner parties both inside and out! The deck is very private, overlooking a land preserve of scrub oaks and sand. And the sunsets! We watched from the balcony as the sun dipped into the water leaving behind a sky on fire with oranges, blues and pinks. We soon initiated our own sunset celebrations with wine and cheese. It was a short drive to the North Fork vineyard where we sampled and bought that wine locally .. and to a farm for the cheese ... where we met our goat! It's a short walk to the public beach (with a lifeguard stand) which was never crowded. There are bedrooms on both first and second floor which allowed privacy for all. We throughly enjoyed our stay ... and know you will, too!

All The Vacation You Need

  • 5 of 5

My mom, my four sisters and I stayed at this great home in June. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. This house is beautiful and so "homey". We loved the layout of the house, the kitchen, the bedrooms everything was just right! We did use the indoor showers but we really like the outdoor shower. Who would think you could take a shower under the stars!

Our landlord Rick was the best! He was so easy to do business with and he bacame our instant friend.

The location is perfect. You have the privacy to relax at this house on the large deck. We found it nice how everyone in the area would go to the beach for sunset! What a life!! You are close enough to go to the grocery store or sight seeing to all the fun shops nearby. We were amazed at how friendly everyone we met was. We all said how it would be so nice to live in an area like this.

We hope to come back to this home next year! Thanks Rick for sharing this home with us!! Janet
