East Hampton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

If you are coming to the East End to appreciate its natural splendor, you will find a comfortable launching pad here. Three hundred yards down an undiscovered road where tricycles and Radio Flyers reign, you have Napeague Bay, home to kite surfers, kayakers, birders, stand up paddlers, and landscape painters. Pull up a beach chair for sunset; take it at your own speed. This newly purchased home has a king bed in one room and a full bed in another. Fore and aft cedar decking, indoor lounging areas, and striped bass biting nearby add to your peaceful days and nights.

About Tim Donahue

We are new owners and veteran East Enders who live year-round on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I am an English teacher and writer and my wife works in magazine publishing. We have two girls who like swimming.

Tim Donahue purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Tim Donahue chose East Hampton

For us, the selling point of the property is its location. Many who come and go to the Hamptons know of hotspots, crowded beaches, and Route 27. This place has none of that -- and that's why we like it. We love the one-minute bike commute to the bay, naps on the outdoor couch, and waking up to birdsong.

What makes this cottage unique

This house dates back to the simpler times when families used to come to their 'camps' and have earnest nights of board games and campfires. With our renovations, we have tried to maintain this simple spirit while adding creature comforts like an outdoor shower, a washer/dryer, a custom sectional, and a nice green lawn. Coming from an apartment in the City, we wanted a place where our daughters can splash around and discover seashells, even if this means they may sometimes eat sand.

First place we plan on returning to!

  • 5 of 5

I have had several summer rentals -- in Montauk, Sag Harbor, East Hampton, Bridgehampton -- it’s usually great, but there’s always an element of stress about having to deal with the traffic on 27, the beach parking, the kids in their parents’ sports cars speeding on the country roads … So, we (my wife and my two girls, aged one and three) are glad we found this house in Lazy Point. With one strategic grocery order delivered by PeaPod, we never had to get in the car during our ten-day visit except to drive to the ocean two miles away. Within a mile, we found different beaches, dunes, tidal pools for wading, a running trail, and a fishing spot. The street itself gets about three cars an hour, maybe five at rush hour. The house is new and clean and it seems quite far away from NYC. We like the random fun of renting, but this is the first place we plan to return to.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family spend June and half of July at this beautiful quiet getaway house ! We loved the location , close to the beach and few steps away from the bay where I swam in the mornings . The house is comfortable with the fab add on like the enclosed porch / dining and the outdoor shower. The location is fantastic for someone who wants to be close to the nature and not too far away from the lovely village of amagansett - we grilled fish and sea food purchased locally every weekend we were there ! Our 4 years old son loved swimming in the nearby shallow bay and we observed a pair of beautiful ospreys taking care of their chicks.

Tim was always very helpful and a great owner to work with.

Amazing Find - Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our three year-old son and I spent a great week at this special house. It’s clear the owners have put careful thought into the layout and comforts. We loved the big outdoor shower, the screened-in porch for morning coffee, the platform sectional for evening sprawls and that everything is new and works well. But we also liked getting outdoors. We rented kayaks for the week and, from just down the street, we could launch off around the bird sanctuary at Hicks Island and toward Gardiner’s Island. It definitely felt wild out there. The ocean was also really close – less than five minutes by car, and we could walk to a small creek where our boy liked to wade and throw pebbles. We’ll definitely be back!

This place is magical

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 kids and I stayed at this cottage for a week at the end of August and it was amazing. The location is great if you're looking for something very mellow with water in walking distance. We walked to several beautiful swimming areas (bay beaches and a swimming hole) and it's a quick drive/bike ride/run to the ocean beach. This area is delightfully quiet (the small street dead ends to the bay) and you are surrounded by nature and wildlife (I saw a beautiful fox one morning while out for a run). This is the perfect escape for an urbanite. Tim, the owner, was very accommodating. I think we were one of the first renters that he had since renovating his cottage. He quickly and pleasantly addressed any house issues that came up during our stay. The cottage is small, but well appointed and the perfect size for our family of 4. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful getaway.

Lazy Point, as the area is known, is protected from the Hamptons crowds and scenesters by Napeague Meadow, Napeague State Park, and Napeague Bay. Bay swimming -- good for kids -- is a three-minute walk. The ocean is two miles away and much of its coast is kept savage by two more state parks. The area is known, mainly, for kite-surfing and bird watching, but days could also include clamming, fishing, mountain biking in Hither Hills ... or just lazing around and reading.
