About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

With its farm-fresh food and dynamic wines, Long Island’s North Fork is quietly becoming one of the most exciting food destinations—and it’s just two hours from Manhattan.

This cottage is the perfect place to unwind on the North Fork with a bounty of activities nearby. Vineyards, beaches, farm stands, horseback riding, hiking trails, shops & boutiques, Greenport, Shelter Island, farm-to-table restaurants, live music, museums, lighthouses, boating, an aquarium, water park, craft beer, and more.

Located in Mattituck, this cottage lies central of North Fork's famous wine trail. It is less than a mile to the famous and quaint Love Lane, with its bucolic shops including the North Fork favorite Love Lane Kitchen. Oregon Road is a simple bike ride away, where you will find charming farmhouses, a sunflower farm, and North Fork favorites Shinn Estate Vineyards & Lieb Cellars. Ballie Beach is an easy 2 miles from the cottage. The cottage sits on a quiet side street along the Mattituck Inlet with direct creek access. Most residents and renters along this very creek have been returning for up to 30 years, it must be a special place. Down the road from Marina with salt-water pool (weekly pool memberships available), waterfront and outdoor dining including special events and live music.

Wake up in the morning to the quiet movement of the creek, swans floating by. Take the paddle boards out to enjoy the serenity and catch a glimpse of the nesting ospreys on the Mattituck Inlet. Afterwards head over to Love Lane for some lemon ricotta pancakes at Love Lane Kitchen, pick up some cheese and chocolate from the local Village Cheese and Sweet Shoppes for a sunset picnic at Ballie Beach later. Visit some Vineyards in the afternoon, I'll tell you our favorites. Later on get the fire pit going by the creek, make s'mores and have some wine from your favorite vineyard. This is a day in the life on the North Fork.

The backyard facing the creek is a perfect place for relaxing or playing bocce ball. Come nightfall, stargaze and make s’mores by the fire pit. There is a folding table with table linens and chairs available if you want to have a picnic dinner under the stars. Bring your kayak or canoe (or rent them at the nearby marina), you can access the saltwater inlet from the backyard! There are also 2 stand up paddleboards available for use. If you have never tried it, now is your chance! It is actually very easy, anybody can do it. Afterwards, rinse off in the outdoor cedar shower.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms have double beds. One bedroom has a queen bed. Linens are included (sheets/blankets/bath towels and beach towels). Double air mattress and pack n play crib are both available. There is a cozy sunroom with couches and reading chairs that comfortably seats 6, a TV with DVD player, two large floor cushions, a coffee table perfect for board games, and a selection of DVDs, books, and games. The house is equipped with wi-fi and Google Chromecast. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, dishes, pots and pans. There is a mango-wood farmhouse dining table for six to eight people (extra chairs are available). There is an upstairs bathroom with walk-in shower and heat fan (for cool mornings), a half bath powder room downstairs, and an outdoor cedar shower.

The North Fork has the best of everything, and this cottage is the perfect charming getaway from the busy grind. It will take you back in time to when living was simple. Quiet and slow pace, relaxed and casual living, near to beaches, countless vineyards and farmstands, and great restaurants. For a slightly quicker pace, Greenport is a short 20 minute drive away. Mattituck is ideally located in the center of everything on the North Fork. We also are more than happy to provide vineyard/winery, activities, and restaurant recommendations.

The weekly rentals begin Saturday at 3pm with check-out the following Saturday at 10am. We are willing to accommodate flexible arrangements if available.

About Sing

We live in Westchester County primarily, but we love coming out to the North Fork to get away for a relaxing vacation. We first came to to North Fork on a long weekend to do some wine tasting. We loved the laid-back nature of the area and the breath-taking scenery of undeveloped land. We purchased the cottage from a lovely family who had used it as a summer home for 30 years. It is a special place, and we look forward to sharing it with others.

Sing purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sing chose North Fork

To us, the North Fork has the best of everything. Quiet and slow pace, beaches, vineyards, and great restaurants. Love Lane is heaven for foodies like us, with the local cheese and chocolate shops, the new Love Lane gourmet market, and of course Love Lane Kitchen. If you are lucky, you will get to see a stunning pink sunset over the northwest side of the Sound. The sky turns amazing shades of bright pink, purple, and blue. It is simple living at its best out here.

What makes this cottage unique

While staying at the property, we like to go paddleboarding on the Inlet, play bocce ball on the beach, visit favorite and new Vineyards, we will always try a new recipe to cook, and we often stop by Love Lane Kitchen for the ricotta lemon pancakes, or portobello sandwich, and we always, always stop by the Sweet Shoppe!

Wonderful home with great backyard on Mattituck Inlet

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I stayed here with our 2 adult daughters and our son-in-law 8/6/16-8/13/16. There was plenty of room here for 5 adults. The 1st floor included a bright and airy sunroom with aTV and DVD player (Chromecast included but no cable or network TV); a good-sized, well-equipped kitchen; a dining room with a large natural wood table and a corner cabinet filled with lots of games; one bedroom with a double bed; and a small powder room. Upstairs was the master bath with a spacious shower and updated fixtures, but with a rustic feel. There were 2 bedrooms, one queen and one double; all the beds were very comfortable. Each bedroom and the dining room had a window AC unit which kept us quite comfortable despite a week of 90+ degree days. Standing fans allowed us to direct cool air into the kitchen and sunroom.

The house has a great location in Mattituck, central to all the attractions of the North Fork, and the yard backs onto Mattituck Inlet which runs out to Long Island Sound. We kayaked (rented from Eagle's Neck Paddling Co) and paddleboarded (2 in the garage) right from the backyard! The launch area does get mucky at low tide. The garage also had a rowboat and some PFDs, 2 adult bikes and several beach chairs. We used the gas grill on some fresh fish from Braun's Seafood in Southold and chicken from the grocery store in Mattituck Plaza, both just a short drive away. The backyard also had a stone firepit and Adirondack chairs to sit around the fire or to watch the sunsets over the inlet.

Love Lane, with its shops and Love Lane Kitchen (great for breakfast/brunch/lunch) is just minutes away, and 40+ vineyards are within a short drive (we enjoyed tastings at Martha Clara, Macari, Sparkling Pointe, Lieb and Duckwalk). We had wonderful meals at A Touch of Venice in Cutchogue, A Lure, with outdoor dockside seating, in Southold and Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport. Not to be missed is ice cream from The Magic Fountain, offering over 30 flavors, right in Mattituck.

We went to 3 beaches: Orient Point State Park on Gardiner's Bay at the end of the North Fork; Breakwater Beach on the Sound at he mouth of the inlet (both beaches were a bit rocky), and Bailie Beach a nice, sandy beach east of the inlet. Unfortunately, you need a resident's pass to park anywhere near this beach-perhaps one could be provided for future guests?

Our host, Sing, was readily available by email to answer questions with a prompt response. Would love to stay here again-highly recommended!

great Easter weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for the opportunity to spend Easter weekend in Mattituck. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing and an Easter egg hunt all in the backyard. We also had a delightful brunch at Pace's today before heading out.

Fall Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage to attend a family wedding. We were 3 adult couples and the cottage was perfect. We loved the rustic cottage feel, yet we had everything we needed. It would have been nice to be there in the warmer weather, maybe next time.

Great Wedding Rental!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this property. We rented it for our wedding weekend. I (the bride) stayed in it Friday night with some girlfriends, and my new husband and I stayed there Saturday night. We got ready there Saturday morning, and there was plenty of room for all of us! The house is so rustic and cute, but the only down side was that the well makes LOTS of noise when you flush the toilet or turn water on. I made my friends very angry on Saturday morning when I was trying to get out my nervous jitters by washing dishes. Oops!

Cute cottage with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a girls trip after a bachelorette party in nyc. Wish we could've stayed a couple more days to unwind, relax and enjoy the yard. Not much to do near the house. Greenport has more restaurants, bars etc. if that's what you're looking for.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I wanted to update you on all the new businesses that have opened up in the area since your stay! An adorable bakery called "Good Food" that serves cold brew coffee, delicious baked treats and Gula Gula empanadas. A Greek market, a new home decor shop, and a total fitness studio. (All in addition to Love Lane Kitchen, Lombardi's Market on Love Lane, Mint clothing boutique, the Sweet Shoppe, Cheese Shop, and other boutiques. The cottage is also an easy biking distance to Shinn Estate Vineyard which recently expanded their outdoor tasting room. We love going to Greenport for a quicker pace, which is 15-20 mins away. Riverhead is 15 mins the other direction. Thanks again for you review and we hope to see you again!
