Other Things to Note
The beach that is a walk away is not a sandy beach but rather a 'bluff beach' with stairs leading down to the water. You may swim here.
There are many bay and ocean beaches a short drive away.
Our home is intended for the quiet enjoyment of our guests and neighbors.
Please no loud noise at any time.
We allow a maximum of 6 (six) guests in our home. THIS MEANS THERE CAN BE NO MORE THAN SIX PERSONS ON THE PROPERTY AT ANY TIME.
If the authorities and/or our neighbors report seeing more than six guests you will be asked to vacate the premises immediately.
We have just cleaned and/or replaced our carpets.
Please no eating or drinking in the carpeted areas.
This one is just my pet peeve.
No moving furniture. (except chairs.
Please no smoking in the house.
The house was very nice, even a little larger than I had expected. The surrounding area is also great. Jerry was helpful in getting access.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. Jerry's house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed, including a comfy TV room in which to watch some of the U.S. Open. The kitchen was well equipped (I think we never found a toaster) with lots of basic supplies.
We would probably describe the "private beach" as waterfront access 250 yards away at the end of the road. It would be very difficult for small children or grandparents to access the water due to the steep steps down the bluff.
It's a slightly more than ten minute drive to Sag Harbor, which is a nice place to stroll round and eat in. There is a public access sandy beach within about ten minutes drive.
We loved the tranquility and sitting on the deck in the evening. The photos give a good idea of the house, inside and out. Thanks very much for your hospitality Jerry.
Jerry was very accommodating and friendly. The house was exactly as advertised and had everything someone could possibly need. We enjoyed spending time relaxing in the yard. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Walking down to the private beach we got to see some deer. At night it was only a 10 minute ride to a lot of great restaurants. I would definitely recommend renting this house!
Jerry and Susan's house is as described - a charming and peaceful retreat nestled among trees and a short walk from the beach. it is well equipped with everything we needed and very comfortable beds. Jerry's directions were easy to follow and we appreciated the brochures on things to do in the area. we enjoyed breakfast on the deck and Sunday morning brunch at the Wolffer Estate winery overlooking the vines.
Very nice and charming house. A beautiful porch, in a quiet neighborhood. Close to the beach and Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge - a must see. Had (email hidden) & Grill, a short drive. The food was excellent. Took a one hour boat ride around the harbor with captain Hagen of (website hidden). Overall a very nice weekend away from the city.
Jogging in the morning, BBQ out on the porch, Tennis 10 min down the road on clay courts, beach views around every turn, overall wonderful time. The house is as described and the beds a quiet comfy. The owners, who we met, are also great and friendly people. I would definitely go back, and would recommend this place to a friend.
Thanks for opening up your home!
Our host was very accommodating. The house and neighborhood were pretty, quiet, and very comfortable. We had a great stay.
