Best farm stands, ice cream shop, fish market, vineyards, golf course downtown walking distance.
We love biking to the beach along East Creek with the family and friends or into downtown Cutchogue. In town, we love to go to Wickham's Fruit Farm Stand (great veggies but pies best of all), Scoops Ice Cream, Touch of Venice and Cutchogue Diner. We also enjoy biking to New Suffolk to stop at beach and Legends or sometimes carry on to downtown Mattituck's Love Lane Kitchen for a yummy bite to eat.
You can walk, bike, bus or take short drives to just about everything.
Suffolk County buses run down Rte 25 which is within walking distance. Destinations include the Hamptons, Riverhead, Southport, Greenport (11 miles) and Shelter Island (via ferry). From Greenport you can drive or bike to Sag Harbor via the north and south car ferries. LIRR is a cab or bike ride away. The Hampton Jitney stops in downtown Cutchogue within a reasonable walk from our place. There is an Enterprise Car Rental nearby.
Other Things to Note
For rentals in cooler periods of the year, our home is very warm and cozy by night, bright and sunny inside by day! We love having friends out for farmstand egg omelettes and sangria brunch all winter.
Fall and Spring are incredible. Greenport has an outdoor ice skating rink during the winter and their carrousel is open year round.
Upon booking we'll provide you instructions with as much detail as you desire. We also have a binder full of local information.
Our family had a wonderful time staying at Doug's home in Cutchogue. We were looking for quiet, comfortable accommodations with easy access to all that the North Fork has to offer, and that is exactly what we got. The house is exactly as described in the listing, and totally fit our needs. Despite being minutes away from loads of activities, beach, and food, we actually spent a good deal of our vacation just lounging around the house.
I should mention also, that this place is perfect for families, and Doug offered access to a treasure trove of toys for our kids. They didn't want to leave when the trip was over.
Doug is a gracious host, and immediately attended the few small questions we had during our stay. Thank you again!
We had a good experience overall renting with Doug. The house was as described, there were a lot of amenities and the neighborhood is very nice. Doug was extremely responsive and provided all the information we needed and more. I would definitely recommend this property to others visiting the area.
We stayed at Doug's adorable cottage house for a week prior to Labor Day. Doug is a wonderful host: very attentive to our needs, super thorough in explaining the rules of the house, the surrounding areas and things to do. The house is pretty centrally located: quick bike ride to the beach, lots of vineyards and especially Braun's Seafood (highly recommend). The house is fully stocked with anything you could possibly want. Excellent place for a family with kids. Highly recommend anyone looking for a place to stay and looking forward to a return trip.
Had a great time staying at Doug's home in Cutchogue. Perfect location close to the beach, big yard and a garage full of bikes, fishing poles and pretty much anything else you can think of! Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
Doug provided all the info we were looking for in terms of how things operated at the house and the amenities of the area. We especially appreciated access to plenty of bikes!
Doug was very easy to reach via text or email and quite responsive to our questions. The home is really super cute and so very very clean and well kept. There were so much of everything stocked in the pantry, kitchen and linen closet. The kids all had a great time, biking to the beach, fishing, playing piano and also on all the electronics they ever dreamed of. They were sort of disappointed that the trampoline they saw in the photos wasn't accessible, but they kept themselves busy with everything else. The bedrooms were comfortable for sleeping, nice soft sheets and great beds. We found out about the downstairs bathroom on the very last day, but the 6 of us managed with the one upstairs. Thank you Doug for letting us stay in your house. We had a great time, going to the fruit stands and the wonderful restaurants in neighboring towns. Also, thank you for being flexible with our check-in time.
