The SpaceGuests at Longmeadow will be welcomed by either the owner or our wonderful caretaker. Upon arrival, a beautiful welcome basket is waiting for you. Baskets feature wine, craft beer, snacks, sweets, and some travel essentials. If children are traveling as well, kid-friendly items will make the little ones feel right at home. If you prefer, we also offer a grocery shopping service. Once your booking is confirmed, you can contact us directly and send along a grocery list. We'll be sure to have the kitchen stocked with your favorites when you arrive (added fee). There is an added cleaning fee of $75 dollars per stay.
This home boasts over 3000 square feet of open and inviting living space. Newly renovated in 2015, the walls are freshly painted throughout, the furniture is all new, and the kitchen has new countertops, backsplash, and appliances. There is a working woodstove in the sitting room, and a fireplace in the master bedroom.
Situated on over two acres of park-like grounds, this home also features a pool, hot tub, children's play structure, basketball "half-court", and cornhole. The outdoor kitchen includes a patio with dining/grilling area, sink, and refrigerator (seasonal). The outdoor living area is adjacent to the dining area and features a comfortable sofa, two relaxing rockers and a fire table. There is also a completely private outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. (Backyard amenities are seasonal). The front porch with southern exposure is the perfect spot for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. A variety of bird life can be observed, rabbits play on the meadow, and sometimes "our" six-point buck makes an appearance! Guest AccessGuests at Longmeadow will have full access to the entire house, excluding the basement. The front yard and porch are also for Longmeadow guests, and the backyard with patio, pool, playset, cornhole, basketball area, and outdoor kitchen are yours to enjoy as well. Interaction with GuestsWhen the owners are not available, one of the best features of Longmeadow is the caretaker. A life-long Long Islander, your caretaker will be on hand for any questions that may come up. The caretaker will make sure basic maintenance issues are addressed and will ensure that everything is in tip top condition! The NeighborhoodIf sticking closer to home is more your style, Longmeadow is a short walk (1/2 mile) from its own lovely little village, complete with grocery stores, pharmacies, pubs, restaurants, shops, pizza, Chinese food, sushi, churches and a temple. There is a small town beach located on Moriches Bay. Webby's Beach also offers a playground for the kids and regular visits from the ice cream man! (seasonal) Close by, you can also hook up with a local fishing charter that can take you for a sunset cruise, or an exciting day of fishing! Getting AroundLongmeadow is just three miles from two train stations. The train takes you directly into Manhattan, dropping you off at Penn Station. Hop on the train heading east, and you can get off in any of the Hamptons and Montauk. Other Things to NoteThis home's location offers the best of what the New York Metropolitan area has to offer. Longmeadow is just 3 miles from two train stations; so getting to NYC is a breeze (1.5 hours by train). If heading east is your thing, Longmeadow is just a 15-30 minute drive from the world famous "Hamptons". If you don't have a car, the train also stops at West Hampton, Bridge Hampton, South Hampton and East Hampton. Equally close by, Long Island's renowned Wine Country offers over 50 award-winning wineries that feature tasting rooms, small plates, outdoor seating overlooking the vines, and live music. An amazing way to spend the day! Of course, there is also a variety of spectacular dining options as well. And obviously, plenty of famous white-sand beaches are easy to find (it is an island, after all:))!
If you're looking for an authentic Long Island vacation, then heading to "The End" is a must. Just a 40 mile drive (or train ride) from Longmeadow is beautiful, historic Montauk. Visit the iconic Montauk Lighthouse, commissioned by George Washington. Stroll the streets of the picturesque village, enjoy amazing fresh seafood, and see the statue of the great white shark caught by Montauk native Frank Mundis (the shark inspired the book and movie"Jaws", and Captain Quint's character is based on Mundis). Of course, Montauk's world-famous beaches are a must for sunbathers, swimmers, and surfers alike.
