Orient House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)


Imagine your next vacation in beautiful Orient on the North Fork of Long Island. Your day starts with a cup of coffee on the 30 ft long porch overlooking Long Island Sound. Then take a walk along your private beach to collect some sea glass or stop to fish off the beach. Later in the day you can bike through lovely Orient Village and stop at the farmers markets to gather local produce for dinner. Then enjoy a peaceful nap or curl up with a good book on the upstairs sleeping porch while listening to the waves. At the end of the day enjoy cocktails on the deck while you grill dinner outside and have a swim in your heated gunite pool while watching the sun set.

This 100 year old home has been beautifully renovated to provide everything you want in a luxury vacation home. The kitchen features black riverstone marble countertops, a gas stove and stainless steel appliances. The open floorplan downstairs has the kitchen seamlessly adjoining the family room with library and TV, as well as the sound view dining room. Both the dining room and kitchen feature sliding doors to the pool deck. The gas heated gunite pool offers comfy seating and direct views of the Sound. The mahogany deck surrounds the north, east and west sides of the home. The house comes with bikes and kayaks for you to enjoy.

Orient -- Orient is a small village on the tip of Long Island. Old houses and churches in a tranquil marine setting have made this a historic area where you will find a post office, a general store, a candy store and farmers markets. Walks and bike rides are peaceful and verdant, whether you are admiring the picturesque water views along Narrow River Road or the charming architecture throughout the village. Each season has its attraction and charm.

Local Culture -- After you have had time to relax and are ready for a little more excitement, you can enjoy wine (or beer) tastings at the local wineries (and now the excellent brewery in Greenport), shop for antiques or art in nearby Greenport or dine out in one of the fine restaurants nearby. The Long Island Ferry is 5 miles to the east, and Orient State Park is nearby. Fresh seafood is available just a short drive away at restaurants such as Orient By The Sea, the Frisky Oyster and Claudio's. Spend time shopping for antiques in Greenport or boating via one of the marinas close by.

*** PURSUANT TO SOUTHOLD ORDINANCE, NO LEASE SHALL BE FOR A TERM OF LESS THAN 14 NIGHTS. Single night requirement is for pricing purposes and to allow us to communicate with stakeholders about the ordinance.

Friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for three couples and one child. The house itself is very comfortable and well maintained, and the location is to die for. It's very quiet and peaceful and a perfect house for those seeking some R & R. Watching the sun set over the Sound from the porch steps was the highlight of our days. The beach is just steps from the house, and, while rocky, is great for strolling, finding shells, and kayaking. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Couldn't be a better getaway home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home with 9 other friends for a long weekend - we've previously rented in the North Fork but this has by far been our best experience so far. The pictures and descriptions are absolutely accurate and don't come close to doing this house justice. The home is very secluded with a short path that takes you directly onto the beach and also conveniently located within a 10 min drive of Greenport Village. The spacious and open design of the kitchen made it great to cook in, especially with so many people helping out. We also utilized the grill as much as we could, which made it a breeze to cook for a crowd. The best part was being able to have our meals outside on the porch and relaxing by the pool. You can tell this home has been well-cared for and loved by their family through the years. Ian was extremely responsive and helpful and I could not recommend this place more.

Gals Birthday Weekend - 4 nights

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place that was very comfortable for a gals getaway - 11 of us total each having our own bed except that I shared the master bedroom (plenty of room) with my wonderful sister. Friends arrived from near and far, even taking the local LIRR to Greenport, NY. The owner Ian was easy to reach with any questions I had about the rental and while there how to operate the Sonos wireless speaker system. The open floor plan was great with a dining area to fit us all, comfortable living area nearby and amazing views of sunrises and sunsets. It was an off season chilly weekend that warmed up a bit for strolls along the beach and great opportunities for photos. The kitchen area and large island was a comfortable work space to prepare meals. And, Ian's restaurant recommendations were fine especially the recommendation of the North Fork Table and Inn for our a long, leisurely and delicious lunch. I recommend the tasting menu. Ian's caretaker, Bob was also very helpful.

Dream house on the North fork

  • 5 of 5

Our pre-season stay couldn't have been more perfect. A lovely, warm, inviting home with unmatched views. The only downside was having to leave!

Same time next year?

  • 5 of 5

Superb beachfront property with pool, wrap-around porch and large lawn that can comfortably accommodate ten and is well-supplied with equipment for a wide range of activities. Not over the top, just simple and aesthetically pleasing with ample space for splashing in the sun, reading in the shade and watching the setting sun sink into the horizon. We shall return for sure.
