  • This was our first Airbnb experience and what a great experience it was! The view was perfectly picturesque, even better than the photos on the website. The house was cozy and clean - we felt completely at home. Our hosts, the Massas, could not have been more delightful nor accommodating! I would totally recommend this getaway to anyone visiting the North Fork area. We hope to visit again someday.

  • My wife and I and two other couples spent a long weekend at Maureen's beautiful North Fork home. We live in the city and we're looking for a quiet place to relax and this was the perfect home. Although there are many wineries very close to the house, we ended up not leaving because we enjoyed the property so much. I love to sit outside and there is plenty of comfortable seating on both the large deck and immaculate lawn. The view over the water is spectacular. There is a beach across the street but we enjoyed the pond a lot more, which is where we spent most of our time. There is direct access from the house and the water is much warmer. On top of the beautiful house and property, Maureen and her husband were very helpful and incredibly kind and gracious people. They are more than happy to give you advice on restaurants, wineries, shops, activities, etc. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to go to local wineries or simply relaxing and spending time with family and friends, as we did.

  • Loved our stay! The property is very charming and in a beautiful location. Layout was great for BBQ, eating outdoors, and even eating indoors you have a great view of the water. It is also very close to the beach- walkable distance. We were a group of five adults and one child and it was the right amount of space for us. Maureen and Alan are the sweetest hosts and took us out on their boat. The neighborhood is very quiet so perfect for a relaxed weekend away with family/friends- but don't expect a huge restaurant/bar scene. Also no TV so bring a laptop or iPad if you want to watch movies. We would certainly come back for another stay!

  • A lovely and comfortable home with a truly breathtaking view, lovely garden and access to the lake. Having your breakfast with that view will take your breath away. Maureen is also a fantastic host and could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We will be back for sure

  • We loved Maureen's house. It was perfect for what we needed. The four of us (two couples) needed a quick getaway from Manhattan, the noise and our fast lifestyle. Maureen's place is so very quiet and has a wonderful view to wake up to. We barbecued every day, visited wineries, played badminton. Maureen was friendly and accommodating and available to answer questions. We really enjoyed it and have recommended it to our friends. Thanks Maureen!

  • Wonderful experience all around. My wife and I took our 5mth old daughter and it was a perfect getaway. Clean, we'll appointed, fantastic view and access to the (email hidden) well as being perfectly situated to visit the surrounding sights. I even caught a striper off the dock! Most importantly, Maureen and Alan were fantastic, wonderful people. So happy to have met them and shared a piece of their paradise. Don't hesitate on this one!

    The Neighborhood is exceptional quiet and there is breathtaking nature all around. Especially the direct access to the pond is a highlight.

    Highly recommendable. We are looking forward to coming back some day.

  • We were so delighted with this home for our vacation. The house is cozy, and beautiful. We went as two couples and had more than enough space. The views of the pond are priceless. We did lots of water activities on pond and lots of barbecuing outside. House is located near all, just a short bike ride away. Our hosts were available in case we needed anything, and were a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend this house!

Professional couple who loves the North Fork and has lots of knowledge to share. have two brown dogs, Dylan and Thomas. One is 13.5 and the other is 3. Have done a lot of traveling and love to return to our home away from home in the North Fork. It's a special microclimate with light and sun year round. We are great hosts because we care about people. We provide recommendations and yet don't interfere unless asked. We have now been hosting for a few months and met the most wonderful people, all of whom we hope will return. Hope you will join that group.
