About Shawn Barnes

Retired Air Force veteran. Looking to provide a quiet getaway for friends and family.

Shawn Barnes purchased this house in 2015

Why Shawn Barnes chose North Fork

We fell in love with the property the first time we set eyes on it. The quiet beach just a three minute walk, the pool, deck, and cottage provide space to enjoy precious moments with friends and family. Just a short walk to Mattituck Village with coffee shops, restaurants, antiques, boutiques, and more.

We loved staying here for a wedding weekend with friends (2 other couples). The pool is huge and the back cottage with one bedroom has a ping pong table for games in addition to the bocce ball court in the backyard as well. Shawn was great to work with and very responsive! Would definitely recomend if you're staying in the area!

Wonderful accommodations in the North Fork of Long Island

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to the Northern Fork of Long Island. Being able to find a home that could accommodate our family's needs was a huge plus. Shawn & Colleen's home is well kept, clean, with comfortable beds and very spacious so our family could spread out. We also enjoyed being able to use the detached cottage as a very private bedroom for one couple. It has a TV hooked up to Netflix and it's own private full bath and kitchen/fridge in the lower portion of the cottage. Shawn and Colleen were very responsive and attentive before, during and after our stay.

The highlight of our trip was a family wedding however we were able to also make day trips around the area to the quaint towns of Greenport, South Hampton and Orient Point. The local farms and wineries are in abundance, so it's easy to find nice local fresh produce and wine almost any way you turn. We enjoyed being able to take walks/runs around the neighborhood in the morning and then watch the sunset from the bay and private beach in the evening. It was nice to also kick back with a good book poolside at the house. The back yard is wonderfully landscaped, making it feel like a very private oasis.

We highly recommend staying at Shawn & Colleen's home. You won't be disappointed.

Great location and pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great and convenient area - right down the block from a nice sand beach (and beautiful Camp Mineola), near Love Lane, wineries and other beaches. The pool and backyard are fantastic! We spent our days relaxing by the pool, BBQing and taking walks down to the beach for a swim. Their are loads of fun pool toys as well. There is also a bocci court in the backyard which was a lot of fun. The main house was very nice and roomy for our family (2 adults and 1 child) and it was great to have 2 full bathrooms. The house has everything you need, including a well stocked kitchen and pool toys. Shawn and Colleen were very accessible and helpful when a couple of questions came up. We had a wonderful time at this house!

Everything you want in a North Fork house....

  • 5 of 5

We just had such a wonderful time at Shawn and Colleen's lovely home. It truly feels like they have welcomed you into their home, and it is very easy to love being on the North Fork. The house is spotless, comfortable and perfect for a friends or family get away. It provides even more space than we expected, given the pool house. It truly is everything that you want.

We spent many days walking to the bay (enjoying the private beach), and then back to the pool in the afternoon. The outdoor space is wonderful! Plus, we ended up tossing on sneaks, and walking to Love Lane Market (~1.0 miles), which is fantastic. The house is very conveniently located to Love Lane and all it has to offer. Of course, the house is also perfectly located to get to many of the prime wineries.

My 3 year old nephew said it best, when he said, "I want to come back to the North Fork, AND I want to come back to this exact house!". ENJOY!

Amazing time in the North Fork!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Shawn and Colleen's Northfork home! Went with a group of friends and was able to enjoy the pool, local beach and nearby vineyards. Made a few trips out to downtown Greenport as well which was accessible by car. The house was clean, well stocked and provided plenty of room for multiple couples. Having the pool house is great and a couple can stay back there for privacy. Particularly loved the bocce ball court and large pool area - spent hours out there relaxing. Would highly recommend to families or a group of friends and hope to stay again soon!

Great house in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this fabulous house for a girls getaway trip. The house was very clean and was decorated very tastefully. It is obvious that the owners have put some effort into making it very homey and up to date. The back yard was huge and the pool area gave you the feeling of being at a resort. I only wish it was a few weeks later when the MANY hydrangeas will be in full bloom to add to the beauty of the back yard. The guest cottage is so adorable and really adds a lot to this property listing.

The location is perfect for a quick stroll to the water as well as to the quaint little town on Love Lane, which is a mere 15 minute walk. Here you can get a variety of delicious food from Love Lane market. In addition, there is a cheese shop, chocolate/gift store as well as multiple other little stores. Love Lane kitchen is there, that is a very popular spot, especially for breakfast.

Its location is perfect to visit the many wineries located on the North Fork. For those that are planning a trip in the future, my friends and I enjoyed many wineries during our stay, a few suggestions include: Raphael's private wine tour (with Gabby) as well as Lenz' fun outdoor wine area. Other wonderful wineries we visited were Bedell and Konto Kosta with its beautiful water view. These are just a few of the over 50 wineries located on the North Fork. A perfect excuse to return in the future.

Also located nearby is Greenport Harbor Brewery. The beer flight there was very tasty indeed. They allow you to bring in your own food which added to the fun afternoon. The staff there were very friendly and made the experience even more enjoyable.

Legends Sports Bar (and fine restaurant) is located very close to the house and boasts a fun atmosphere and large bar area enjoyed by many of the locals. The food was very tasty and offered a wide variety of choices. I would recommend a visit there fore sure.

We enjoyed our stay very much and can't wait to return back. Next time I plan on renting bikes where you can pick them up right there near the house. There is a wide bike lane on the side of the road where you can bike from winery to winery taking in some fresh sunshine along the way.

There are some charming little towns along Rt 25 with many cute little shops and antique stores that we visited during our stay.

The owners of the house were very responsive and made the rental a seamless effort. I would highly recommend renting this house for a future trip to the North Fork.
