Hugh and Laura were lovely, as was their place. They were very accommodating with all of our questions and also with our scheduling. They even offered us a flashlight when we went to the beach in the evening. Note that we should have packed bug spray for this event!
4 of us stayed in the apartment for a relaxed weekend. We spent the weekend cooking, going to the beach, & swimming in their beautiful pool. The grounds are amazing. Hugh and Laura were flexible with our schedules and made it very easy to communicate with them. They even had wine and muffins, milk, oj & butter available for our use.
We would all love to return! Thanks for everything!
Laura and Hugh are great hosts! Their home is beautiful with an amazing pool. We had a great girls trip and felt cozy in their guest apartment. Laura and Hugh were kind enough to leave us wine and muffins when we arrived. The location is perfect for North Fork wineries, farmer's stands and Tanger outlet shopping. Thanks Laura and Hugh for a great weekend!
Good location, apartment fully equipped, very nice surroundings and last but not least 2 very pleasant, warm hearted and friendly hosts.
With pleasure I would book again!
Hugh and Laurie were absolutely wonderful hosts. They made us feel extremely welcomed and were very gracious with last minute adjustments to our trip and restaurant recommendations. We were touched by the snacks they had for us upon arrival including the delicious cinnamon muffins, chips, salsa and yogurt for the morning. We cooked one night in our kitchen and found everything we needed to make our gourmet meal!
Hugh and Laura went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The house was better than advertised (if that is even possible), the grounds were beautifully well kept, and the apartment was spotless! They had snacks and juice for our kids in the fridge, and wine and fruit for us when we arrived! We cannot wait to come back!
Hugh and Laura have such a lovely home! Upon arriving, Hugh and Laura greeted us with a tour, bottle of wine, muffins and even some juice and milk stocked in our fridge. We more can you ask for? The description and photos were totally accurate. There's a beautiful yard with a pool, peaceful garden and fire pit (which unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of because it was rained during most of our stay!). The space itself was comfortable and extremely clean, and we had total privacy.
Hugh and Laura would also come out to check on us when we'd leave or arrive to make sure we had what we needed. We felt so welcome and comfortable. They were excellent hosts, helping us to have a great weekend away. I highly recommend booking your stay here! Thank you both for being such great hosts!!
Hugh and Laura were wonderful hosts. They were so welcoming and easy going. They answered all our questions and helped us find excellent vineyards, food stands/markets, and walking trails in the neighborhood. Their house and property were beautifully maintained and we had access to everything we needed for a great weekend. There is a gorgeous pool to use and a private stretch of beach very close to the house both of which we enjoyed. We would definitely recommend staying here!
About the Host, Hugh

Retired three years now, we have taken advantage of every opportunity to travel that crosses our path, traveling to Egypt, Jordan, the Galapagos Islands, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Amsterdam, Alaska, the South West, Canada, Costa Rica.... We have learned that experience is everything and we can't wait to share the North Fork experience with our guests.
Life is the people that you meet and all the experiences along the way.
