The SpaceRelax for a couple of weeks or more in a bright, cozy one-bedroom cottage apartment on a country road, close to farm stands and beaches. A sunny lawn perfect for croquet, dining alfresco, and enjoying the stars awaits you along next to a wooded backyard. The most beautiful Sound beach on the North Fork is right down the road, a 2-minute drive or 10-minute walk. Nearby, the Lavender Farm is open to the public. Just a bike ride away, Peconic Bay beaches and estuaries beckon kayakers with shallow water warm enough for October swimming.
The cottage apartment with its private front entrance is completely separate from the rear of the house which is owner occupied on weekends. In addition to one bedroom, the cottage includes a living room with a sleeper sofa (perfect for an extra child or adult), a fully equipped kitchen, and a bathroom. Linens and towels are provided, along with air conditioning, a charcoal grill, and a washer/dryer. Several bicycles, life vests, and one kayak are available to use. Pets are okay with prior approval (no cats please).
Bird song fills the air at this idyllic cottage, and in the evening you’ll see lots of deer, rabbits, and an occasional fox. A easy place to hike is Dam Pond Preserve in East Marion, and a favorite bike ride is to Narrow River Road in Orient, which is also a fabulous place to walk, kayak, and swim. At the tip of the North Fork, Orient State Park is home to a unique maritime forest and beautiful beaches, too. And if you like to fish, charter boats can be booked at many local marinas.
When you’re ready for civilization, lots of great restaurants, movies, theater, art galleries, and shops are a 10-minute drive away in Greenport. So come to the cottage, relax, have fun, and enjoy life in the slow lane!
