Baiting Hollow Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Pretty, comfortable, clean & affordable. 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 5.

Please call owner prior to booking for payment options and a further description of amenities.

This pretty cottage is just seven cottages away from Long Island Sound. It's snuggled inside a beautiful beach community of other cottages called Woodcliff Park (see google map insert) which is located on the North Fork of Long Island just 70 miles from New York City in the middle of wine country. The private beach and laid back atmosphere will soothe you. The cool wooded property that surrounds the cottage always has a slight breeze and attracts birds and chipmunks. In addition, the property allows guests close access to the Hamptons and Ocean beaches, Splish Splash water park, challenging golf courses, Tanger shopping outlet, East Wind caterers/day spa, Giorgio's caterers, fine dining or you can eat a boiled lobster sitting right on the beach watching a gorgeous sunset! You will feel relaxed and rejuvenated from this wonderful vacation spot!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We throughly enjoyed our time at the cottage, thank you for everything. It was so nice to rent somewhere that had everything we could need. The kids had a blast as well. We are looking forward to coming back next year July 8th.

Thanks again for opening your lovely cottage to us.

Peaceful Cottage by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little cottage with nice patio for cocktails or barbecue. Great location for wineries, restaurants, or hanging out on a great beach. A nice, peaceful place to explore Long Island.

Owner's Response: Barbara and her family are friends of ours who have stayed at the cottage every Fall with their grandchildren. Harvest Time on the East End brings pumpkin and apple picking, freshly baked pies, roasted corn and a new crop of grapes for all of the numerous wineries which have live music, outdoor seating that overlooks the vineyards and award winning wines. The beach which is just a minute walk from the cottage is still beautiful and the water still warm from being heated all Summer long. Come and relax and enjoy!

Summer fun. Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stays here every Summer. The cottage is just a few cottages away from the beach and it's not very crowded. This is great for our young children who want to go every day. Over the years we have made friends with other families and we look forward to rekindling those friendships every year.

The cottage itself is really kept up. Always some kind of improvement or new furniture year over year. There's even a DVD collection and some board games.

Close by is the town of Riverhead which has really expanded over the years. Everything you'll need is there, Walmart, Target, CVS, fast food, Laundry mat, Panera bread, gas stations, Peconic Bay hospital, Tanger Outlet stores and Splish Splash water park. Go first thing in the morning to Splish Splash cause it can get crowed.

Another wonderful family vacation.

Owner's Response: It's always a pleasure having this family as guests. They truly appreciate the beach setting, the cottage, patio, BBQ, outdoor living and surrounding area. It's nice to have repeat guests and we take it as a sign that we are good hosts who accurately represent our property and provide a welcoming and enjoyable experience for our guests.

Very clean comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at the cottage in the end of this August, and loved it. It's very clean, the beds are comfortable, 2 A/Cs are working well. The cottage has everything you might need. And the owner is very friendly and easy to work with.

The village is quiet in the evenings, but has street lights. The main attraction is the beach which is not crowded at all and has beautiful sunsets. There is a staircase to the beach with about 60 steps, you have to be prepared for that.

We would love to come back!

Owner's Response: These 2 best friends live in NYC and vacationed for a week out at the cottage to get away from the heat, noise and hustle and bustle of the City. We are so glad that they had a great time, felt comfortable at the cottage and in the surrounding community and took full advantage of, as they say, "the main attraction" the private beach. A nice break from City life.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer we stayed here. And the cottage hasn't changed.

You have all you need. It is very clean and warm. The beach is a five minute walk.

Wish we could stay a little longer but no time.Will try next year for a longer stay

Thanks again Lisa For a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Last Summer, this couple vacationed at the cottage with their children. This Summer, as sometimes happens, the children were busy with their activities, so the couple vacationed without the children and got some much needed downtime to recharge and refresh before school started. As many of our guests have told you, the cottage, patio and BBQ gas grill are clean, cozy and will give you an at-home feeling. Being able to walk instead of drive to the private beach is so convenient and pleasant. There are beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board and some fun beach things right at the cottage all for your use. When you leave the cottage and drive down Sound Ave. you'll be able to explore the area which is rural and is known for it's wineries, fresh local produce and pies sold at farm stands. There are also some outstanding local golf courses, restaurants and Tanger outlet which has hundreds of brand name stores at discounted prices. There is something for everybody.

Cozy, home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! We truly felt at home, and having the beach in such close proximity was great. We will be back next summer.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that a family enjoyed the cottage, beach and their weeks vacation.Our guests had children ages 23, 15 and 7. Sometimes it's hard to please all members of a family, but there truly is something for all to enjoy at the cottage and surrounding area. The feel- at-home sense that the cottage, patio, and beachfront community gives is very relaxing and welcoming. The beach is easy to walk to so you can swim, sun eat and drink whatever you like. Stay at the beach all day, or go back to the cottage for lunch, shower and do some wine and cheese tasting, visit the many farm stands which sell their local produce, pies and roasted corn, shop at Tanger outlet, golf, movies, fishing or just hang out on the patio.

Quiet, relaxing, & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A small cottage away from traffic and noise, nestled in a small vacation community, this is a great spot to do all the summer activities Long Island's East End is famous for. It's not in the middle of anything, but a short drive to everywhere. On top of that, there's a beautiful North Shore Long Island beach a short walk away. We also got a nice view on the way there, and good exercise walking up the steps on the way back. We didn't have to pack beach chairs or umbrella, they were already waiting, courtesy of our host. Frankly, I could have spent my entire time splashing in the water, but with so much to do in the area, we found ourselves here and there enjoying nature, dining, and attractions. During our visit it was hot but the patio of the cottage was catching shade from tall trees here and there. At night we always enjoyed sitting on the glider on the patio. Our host provides an information book and menus, which were great to have. We forgot to buy sugar, but that was already there. We would have liked to stay longer.

The cottage was spotless when we arrived. Dishes, cups and basic cooking tools were provided. We had perfect weather, so we never had to dive into the board games, puzzles, or DVD selection. The beach requires a walk down stairs from the top of the bluff to the sands below. It isn't handicapped accessible. The only thing I didn't care for was the use of air fresheners. Being sensitive to smells and chemicals, I could have done without them. In fact, we took them outside for our stay. Frankly, the place smelled fresh our entire time without them.

If you're looking for a Long Island getaway, this may be the cottage for you. The host was a dream to deal with, checked on us once or twice, and provided a great place to enjoy a week or so in NY.

Owner's Response: We always feel fortunate when our guests are as wonderful as this family. They thoroughly enjoyed and used the property, the private patio and propane BBQ, the cleanliness of the cottage and other niceties provided such as beach chairs, umbrella, board games, books, DVD collection, a kitchen complete with pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, utensils, 4 burner stove and a full sized refrigerator with an assortment of cooking spices. The cottage, as mentioned, is located in a beachfront community of other little cottages called Woodcliff Park which is laid back, relaxing and friendly. We have a private beach just a short walk away with no life guards whistles constantly blowing, where you'll be allowed to bring any flotation devise you desire, drink whatever you wish, and stay as long as you like. The area is great for exploring wineries, farm stands, great restaurants, golf, festivals, ocean beaches or shopping at Tanger Outlet. We keep a book of attractions we have enjoyed on the dining room table to which guests are encouraged to add to. Air fresheners are a personal choice. We ourselves don't care for them. We want to smell the fresh air, trees, sand and beach, but many guest like them, so we provide 2 and place them were they can be easily found and removed as this family chose to do. We would certainly love to have this family back as gueats again.

Eastern Long Island, is a fabulous area. The cottage is on the North Fork which hugs Long Island Sound and extends to Orient Point where you can catch the ferry to both Mohegan Sun and Fox Woods casinos. Visit the wineries and farm stands on both the north and south forks to give yourselves a wonderful day trip. Of course there's the beach within walking distance from the cottage. Do you like to fish? Captain Bob's in Mattituck is the place to charter a fishing boat. Afterwards, dine at 'The Waterfront' restaurant right next door on the outdoor deck, or inside. Do you like to golf? Try "Cherry Creek Golf Links" right on Sound Ave. just East of the cottage.

The cottage is also just 20 mins. from West Hampton on the south fork, where you can drive over the bridge to the famous Dune road and see all of the beautiful mansions! Keep driving, and you'll come to Cupsogue County Beach which is open to the public and enjoy a day at the ocean. West Hampton is your gateway to The Hamptons. Enjoy!

In addition to the private beach, Woodcliff Park has a community laundry room with coin operated washers and dryers. Next to it is the basketball court.
