About this listing
This cottage is beautifully located on Great Pond on one-half acre in the heart of Long Island's North Fork. The lakefront is secluded from neighboring properties and is superb for swimming, boating and fishing. Swimming in Long Island Sound is just six blocks away at Kenneys Beach. Dine on the deck with a sunset view of the lake and then stargaze with no interfering city street lights.
Cottage has two bedrooms accommodating up to four people, an all-electric kitchen with microwave and coffee maker, internet access and a TV and DVD player. Pets allowed with prior approval and signed pet agreement.

We were really excited to get away from the city and spend the weekend at Southhold. Larry was very informative and sent us several emails with things to do/see during our stay.
When we arrived at the property, the house had a moldy smell to it. The place was not clean. There were dead bugs everywhere. We immediately opened up all the windows to ventilate the cottage but the smell was still very strong. My fiance could not tolerate the house. On the first night we had to drive to town to buy benadryl just so she could stop sneezing and coughing. The only time she was okay was when we were outside.
The wifi is this house is pretty much non existent. We really wanted to explore Southhold so we brought our laptop so we can get directons to places. We were very surprised to find that the only way we could get a signal was to walk over to the second house on the property where the router was. The cottage needs its own wifi or at least a signal booster.
The house has no oven. We planned to cook all our meals so we had to use the charcoal grill. As a courtesy to future renters we replaced the bag of charcoal in the front patio as well as the lighter fluid.
If you can get past everything else the house is in a great location. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. The lake is on the property.There is fishing. There are wineries and organic farms to visit.We were lucky to find the town of Greenport while driving and we spent a lot of time there.
As for the money we spent on renting the house for the weekend, it wasn't worth it.
What a lovely place!! My boyfriend and I had a great time sitting by the lake, going to the beach, and biking around in Southold. Larry was very helpful and informative. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
This cottage is a real find. It's comfortable and very convenient to the beach and North Fork wineries. The setting is extremely quiet and the woods and lake are lovely. Larry was gracious and helpful throughout. I could not have asked for a better experience. I can't wait to go back.
Staying at Larry's private lake-side cottage in Southold was just what I needed. Traveling from New York, I wanted to get back to nature and also go wine-tasting in the North Fork area. The cottage was a perfect place to call home, while doing just that. The private cottage, located on a lake, and a ten minute walk from the beach, was the perfect spot to relax, and had everything that one needs. Communicating with Larry was easy and he gives lots of information about the neighborhood. There were also pamphlets of local points of interest on the table! Overall, a very easy and peaceful weekend!
Only thing I would recommend is having a car, bike, or the number to a taxi, since the cottage is somewhat from town.
