About This Listing
What I love most about my house is the closeness of nature around you. In the morning you are greeted by the sounds of all different kinds of birds and looking out of the kitchen windows toward the lake you will often see deer and other wildlife.
This ranch house is beautifully located on a freshwater lake in the heart of Long Island's wine country, just minutes from the beach. Enjoy abundant bird life in a garden setting. The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking or canoeing. Swimming in Long Island Sound is just six blocks away at Kenney's Beach. Barbecue and dine in the spacious backyard with a sunset view of the lake. Stargaze with no interfering city street lights. House has two bedrooms and a queen size sofa bed accommodating up to five people, a large ranch-style kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker, internet access, and a TV, DVD and VCR. Pets allowed with prior approval.
Guests have access to the entire house with the exception of the basement. You also have complete access to all of the property, including secluded access to Great Pond.
Interaction with Guests
I am available by phone and via email during your stay.
On this section of Soundview Avenue there are no street lights and very little in the way of other artificial lighting, which makes for wonderful stargazing at night.
From my house it is 2 miles to the center of Southold, where you can find the Long Island Railroad station as well as a stop for the Hampton Jitney into New York City.
Other Things to Note
It is important to note that I generally ask guests to supply their own towels and linens (sheets and pillowcases) for their stay, unless they are coming from a great distance, in which case I can supply these items. In the master bedroom there is a double bed, in the second bedroom there are two twin beds, and in the living room there is a queen size sofa bed.
Because the sofa bed is new, I would expect you to exercise care with food and beverages in the living room. Also, if you plan to do any outdoor grilling in the barbecue area, be prepared to bring your own supplies, including your own metal grill.
Larry's lake house is super cute, and just as advertised. A few girlfriends and I came out for Memorial Day weekend, just to have a place to relax that wasn't in the city, and it was just what we were looking for. The water is beautiful, the yard is spacious with plenty of room for outdoor dining and picnicking, and the beach is a short walk down the street.
Fabulous weekend getaway spot!
A great weekend in north fork. Relaxed simple place and the dogs had a blast. Lawrence is very nice and in contact when you need him. Hope to come back again soon.
A quiet, simple home near a pond, 5-10 minute walk from the beach. Mr. Currie provides directions and area info. We were very happy with our three-night stay there.
Location Location location! This was a perfect place for a first trip to the area. The property is truly a retreat. Larry was easy to communicate with and provided great information about the area. The kitchen is nicely updated with all new appliances (dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, toaster, coffee pot, microwave- nice granite etc.) However the cookware and utensils are sparse and not really adequate if you plan to eat in a lot. Which is recommended for lengthy stays as we found the nicer restaurants a bit over-priced. It would also be helpful for guests to have a full list of expectations about what to bring. We were notified after we booked that we would need to bring our own sheets, towels and linens. Which was ok for us but for someone perhaps flying into the area might have been an issue. Also there was no dishwashing soap or other cleaning supplies available- though plenty of grocery stores nearby- again it would be nice to have a detailed checklist ahead of time- just so folks know what to expect.
Outside the kitchen the rest of the place is a bit dated- but charming. The beds were comfortable. Outdoor furniture is non--existent except for a couple of plastic chairs so bring your own chairs if you want to be comfortable outside. We loved our stay.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had such a great weekend thanks to Larry's precise instructions about the area and the house is such a peaceful little germ. Thank you again Larry!
