Interaction with Guests
We don't live far and we're always available by phone with any questions or concerns you might have.
Quiet, tree lined streets; we are two blocks from a scenic beach. Great for jogging and biking. The wineries are five minutes away. There's cute shopping on the main drag and good restaurants all close by. There are water sport rentals - kayaks, wakeboarding (instruction available), waterskiing, surfing, tubing, kiteboarding, custom charters, fishing. You can tour all the historic lighthouses on the North Fork.
You can take the Hampton Jitney here from NYC, or the Long Island Rail Road. Local transportation is necessary.
Other Things to Note
During the summer there are wonderful lobster and seafood festivals. You can find dancing and picnicking at Mitchell park in the Greenport Marina. Greenport is 10 minutes away with great restaurants and shopping, a historic merry go round and marina. The ferry to Shelter Island is in Greenport. The cross sound ferry is close by in Orient. Parking at local beaches is restricted to residents; our house is close enough that you can just walk to the beach. You'll want flip-flops or beach shoes on the pebbly North Shore beaches.
No smoking on premises. No pets. Enjoy yourself!
Words can not express how we enjoyed staying at your place. Perfect for young couples and walking distance to the beach. Winter setting was beautiful. It was neat to see the beach covered with snow. We love the little surprises you left us the second time around.
I will definitely recommend your place for a stay in New York. You keep your place very clean and it’s quaint.
Looking forward to going back!

Remarkable! The setting was remarkable, the service was remarkable, the attention to detail was remarkable. We highly recommend booking this home with Mary. This was a perfect place for us to host a small retreat with friends - peaceful, charming, and relaxing!
This well-maintained home was a great place to stay for our small group. Everything was fairly basic but new and sturdy inside. The location was great for exploring the North Fork, from wine and beer tasting rooms to the local towns and beaches. Mary was very responsive and had lots of good specific recommendations to share. We had a great long holiday weekend here even though the weather was very cold and snowy. Now we'll just have to come back during the summer so we can bike to the beach!
We had a nice stay over Thanksgiving. We were looking for a quiet getaway, and got just that.
This was such a lovely house and perfect for our girls weekend in the Northfork. The place was super clean and in a quaint neighborhood. It had everything we needed to enjoy some wine and dinner together. It's very close to the vineyards so it was an easy commute home after the tastings. I would recommend this to anyone and would love to return in the summer. Mary was very helpful with any info we asked her so all in all this was a great experience.
Our stay at Mary's was one of my favorite AirBNB experiences to date. Her 3-bedroom home was immaculately clean, from the linens to the towels to the rooms. Mary, what detergent do you use, I'm switching! Beds were A+ comfortable to me, on the firmer side. I slept great. The beds in one of the bedrooms are on the smaller side, best for children. Kitchen was extremely well stocked with amenities.
Mary was an exceptionally generous host. She answered all my questions on where to eat and drink and go with the expertise of a local insider. I'm sure she would have been accessible if we had needed to reach her. She was also very generous with lending her bicycles to us - we had a fun few hours biking to Greenport (beware, the ride is beautiful but a bit hilly so you need to be fit!).
The house is in forest, but just a few blocks off from the beach. We didn't get to check out the beach, because we were there in November, but it's there for those lucky enough to make it when the weather is warmer.
The house is driving distance to a bunch of great wineries, the ferry at Greenport (which goes to Shelter Island), cute antique stores, and restaurants. There is space in the driveway to safely park at least 2 cars.
Cell phone service might be a bit sketchy in the house, depending on what carrier you use. I had problems with my ATT, but my friend was ok with his Verizon. In any case, the Wifi works great. There is cable television too for those who just want to chill out and stay in. Temperature controls worked great, we were there when it was moderately cold outside, in the 40-50s, but inside the house felt great.
This was a great choice for the Southhold area. I hope Mary will have us again.
Mary was very welcoming on the phone. The home was everything it had been described. We enjoyed the cute, clean and welcoming home. It was a lovely home in a quiet neighborhood, just a short walk from the water.
We live on the North Shore of Long Island--I'm a nurse at Stony Brook Hospital and my husband's been teaching bass and guitar out here for more than thirty years--kindergartners through professionals; he does it all! We love Southold and the down-to-earth quality of the East End--they call it sushi in the Hamptons, but in Southold, they call it bait. We're busy with our four year old son and we don't get out to the house much these days--maybe next year!
