Semi rustic, cottage with historic roots. Provides excellent water scenery, pleasant breeze with that classic, open water smell.
Perfect summer spot...
This cottage was perfect for our small group (two couples and one toddler). The location can’t be improved upon, and the cottage was as charming as possible. Bring sunscreen because if the weather is even halfway decent you’re going to want to be outside most of the time, enjoying the view....
Beautiful getaway for your busy life
Five of our family stayed here for most of a week in mid-springtime. If you are familiar with the Long Island Southold, Greenport Harbor area, you know that Orient is close by these but in a quieter area nearer the end of the North Fork. This gives it a very nice balance of peace and calm and with easy access to things to do. When we were at the cottage, we enjoyed the bay view and breeze, sounds of waves and birds and some glorious sunsets from the porch. Osprey where frequent flyers by the bay.
Bayside Cottage is on the beach and has no immediate neighbor house on one side, helps with the feeling of a place just for you. A short walk down the street brings you to the Orient Country Store for easy breakfast or tasty lunch sandwiches and salads. Don't miss some of their selection of house made cookies for desert.
We enjoyed the attractions of the area for oysters (Little Creek Oyster Farm); clams, fresh fish, oysters and IGA bought onion rolls filled seafood salad (shrimp-crab-lobster) from Southold Seafood Market, good times beer and food at Greenport Harbor Brewery (Southold), and tastings at a select few of the many excellent local wineries.
Nearby nature preserves we visited included Orient Point State Park and Mashomack Preserve. The latter features a system of trials with viewing of wildlife and local flora (labelled for your interest).
Tim, our host, was very helpful and likeable, easily accessible whenever we needed something, more of a friend than a host in the way we were treated.
I'd like to go back to Bayside Cottage for my next visit to the North Fork area just to see the sunsets again.
Many thanks for your gracious and generous review. Sounds like you took in the relaxing throw-back charm and vibe of Bayside Cottage and Orient while still undertaking a full slate of local activities. Enjoyed hosting you, and, when you get the urge and need, feel free to wander on back. Until then, God bless Texas!
We had a great time in this charming cottage. The owner was so unbelievably accommodating! Beautiful location!
It had a very beachy feel. Not luxury but comfortable. It was right on the water with a beautiful deck at the side of the house. Plenty of chairs to sit and enjoy the view. The bedrooms were roomy enough. The bathrooms could stand an upgrade but they were clean.
We loved Bayside Cottage, we came here for a weekend fishing trip for my husbands birthday and had a great time. Wood burner was a plus!. Owner was very nice and accommodating also. We cant wait to come back to Orient.
