About this listing

Idyllic retreat in North Fork beach and wine country. Quiet and peaceful, at the end of a private road, our charming, renovated 1830's farmhouse has complete privacy. Hammocks, outdoor fireplace, great kids yard-private and safe. A bird lovers' paradise.

The space

Idyllic writers retreat- quiet, peaceful, no car needed. Our renovated farmhouse is nestled in the woods off the Main Rd, so you get the country feeling and a lot of privacy, but can walk to restaurants, shops, grocery store. Bike to wineries and beach (Long Island Sound or Peconic Bay). From NYC you can take an express bus or train and walk to the house! After a brisk walk or bike ride sit in front of the roaring fireplace. Talk to us about a monthly or seasonal winter rental at a reduced price.

Wonderful getaway - everything you could ever want for a restful, comfortable stay. A charming house, on a gorgeous piece of land, it's made for relaxing, which is just what we did. Can't wait to come back again. Thank you Greta and Lisa!

Lovely home. Quiet and woodsy, but in a convenient location. The front yard is beautiful. We didn't get to enjoy the firepit, due to the weather, but it looks like a very nice spot.

Response from Greta:
Come again when you can use the firepit, fall is spectacular. Thanks again for alerting us to the driving on grass issue!

What a beautiful and lovely country escape! Exactly what we were hoping for when we looked for a place to stay in the North Fork. It is close enough to town to be very convenient, but the immediate surroundings make the home feel so removed and peaceful. Thanks for hosting us!

We loved our weekend in North Fork, Greta and Lisa went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. I had to add a night to my reservation, which Airbnb makes a bit complicated and Greta worked back with me to make sure it was as seamless as possible. The house is gorgeous inside and out and is centrally located to anywhere you'd want to visit on Long Island, we spent mornings and evenings enjoying the nature preserve and the house had plenty of space for the 4 of us. Overall we had a perfect experience from start to finish and would gladly rent here again!

Greta's lovely house was perfect for our needs. We were a family of five in town for a wedding, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The entire grounds were very pleasant. There are multiple places to sit outside, including one with a fire pit. And her location is quiet and secluded yet only a fine minute walk to restaurants and 15 mins to a beach. Only things to note for future guests is that the microwave doesn't work and if you are a big group, someone will likely need to sleep in the loft which is very cozy but requires climbing a ladder so that person needs to be spry enough to do so. I highly recommend Greata's place and we will stay there next time we visit the North Fork.

Greta's home was an amazing escape from the city life. She was also a great host, offering her suggestions for wineries, restaurants, etc for a perfect stay in everything North Fork. I plan to stay again when I head to areas! 100% perfection!

Greta's home in North Fork is exactly as described and perfectly suited for anyone visiting to do wine tastings. It is right in the center of town, yet tucked away on a quiet road in a beautiful, serene setting. The house is spacious and was nice and clean. Greta was also very accommodating for a shorter stay at a fair price. I highly recommend staying here!
