North Fork Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, brand new 1/2 bath (Sleeps 6)

Our lovely Country Cottage offers guests a taste of country life on serene Brushes Creek surrounded by nature. Enjoy bird watching, deer, rabbits and fox spotting, and the peaceful flow of the tides from any of our 3 decks or right outside the picture window in the cozy living room and master bedroom.

Enjoy fishing and kayaking from our dock in the back yard or walk 2 blocks down to the private bay beach.

This lovely property is the perfect combination of country living with modern conveniences a short drive away. Relax while watching the creek's ever changing tides, listen to the shore birds calling and join them for some fishing from the dock.

Something for everyone - in the heart of wine country - kayaking (double and single kayaks included) - fishing poles set up for your use - hiking - antiquing - biking (2 adult bikes and 2 little wheels included) on country roads and an old fashioned bicycle built for two.

Check out 'Love Lane' a 'foodies' delight - cheese shop/sweet shop/wine store and of course the 'Love Lane Kitchen'. For the serious shopper Tanger Outlet - at 10 miles down the road - is a must.

Tennis and golf enthusiasts won't be disappointed either with both available a short drive away.

Not to mention 'Splish Splash Water Park' another great way to spend a hot summer day! Perhaps best of all - try roasted corn at Schmitt's farm stand right down the road! Delicious restaurants for every palate.

Check out the historic mariner's community of Greenport with artsy shops and don't miss the vintage carousel - and the ferry to Shelter Island a worthy explore of its own and gateway to the famous Hampton's Beaches...

All this for you to enjoy while staying in our charming creek front country cottage with views of sleepy Brushes creek and beautiful landscaped yard, terraced gardens and enclosed outdoor hot/cold water shower.

About Mary Or Emery Korpi

We love the North Fork and have rented various homes over many, many summers. When the opportunity to purchase this lovely cottage came our way we couldn't resist. We are Long Island natives who love the out of doors. My husband is a competitive kayak racer and avid fisherman. I enjoy a good book, time spent in nature, especially by the water and a delicious meal with family and friends whether prepared at home or at one of our favorite restaurants. While we currently reside in Nassau County our goal is to retire to this cottage in a few years. We're happy we can share its natural peace and beauty with you.

Why Mary Or Emery Korpi chose North Fork

The perfect combination of waterfront - with no risk of flooding! - surrounded by nature. Close enough to encourage walking and biking to the magnificent Peconic Bay. Kayaking right out of our back yard and bird watching from every window and all 3 decks!

What makes this bungalow unique

Wonderful outdoor space combined with cozy yet open plan cottage. We really enjoy relaxing on the deck and watching the water birds fishing in the creek. Osprey circling above - great white egrets wading through the creek at low tide - geese, ducks and swans swimming

by while we watch through the large windows with great views.

Amazing time with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect. My family and I are considering another visit next year! We didn't get a chance to use some of the perks (kayaks, bikes, beach) because of weather and schedules but maybe next time! The owners were helpful and accommodating. Cottage was clean and tidy. They thought of everything- even down to toys for my son to play with! We all had a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We love it when our guests appreciate the natural beauty of our setting - the view of the estuary, birds calling and fishing in the creek add unique aspects to the cottage. We include 'toys' for ages 1 to 94 with books, games, puzzles as well as kayaks, bikes - 3 adults (2 with baby seats) - 2 kids - 1 with training wheels, a big wheel and a little wheel, a disc swing from a tree in the front yard, fishing rods ready to use, bats and balls, slip 'n slide, sprinklers and a baby pool. Truly something for everyone just 2 miles from the Main Rd. with every modern convenience from Starbucks to McDonalds - farm stands and Magic Fountain home made ice cream, fabulous restaurants and vineyards.

Simply out of this world

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully located, very well appointed with lots of toys for all! A glorious week of al fresco dining amongst the beautiful countryside, sharing with varied and exciting wildlife . ..including snappers!

Mary and Emery were so helpful in making arrangements for our stay, super quick correspondence and always going the extra mile to help make our stay super special.

There is plenty to do at the Cottage or if you want, in the local vicinity . . .why would you want to go miles away?!! We might even break the habit of a lifetime and actually return to a place we've enjoyed it was so good.

Best Summer Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at the Corpi's home in Laurel. There are so many reasons why we keep coming back. The house is perfect for our family- we have two small kids (4 and 7) that LOVE spending time at the house. The disc swing was a super-bonus for us this year! The kids loved it. They are content running around the yard, chasing bunnies, fishing off the dock and saying hi to the swans that feel like old friends at this point. We spent most days at Veteran's beach which is ideal for all of us. Great swimming with lifeguards, catching jellyfish and collecting shells. The playground at Veteran's is always fun. We spent a day at Breakaway Beach on the Sound- rocky but crystal clear water and not as much sand in our lunch! We hiked up to the Orient Point Lighthouse again and it was amazing! The four of us swam with the fish every day and had an amazing week! Lobster rolls in Greenpoint and daily Magic Fountain ice cream were highlights. This is the kind of low-key vacation that I want to replicate every year. Thank you for a great stay!!!
