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, bikes, and kayak available. A bird lovers' paradise.
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.
Yes, LIRR and Hampton Jitney to the bottom of our road.
Please do not smoke in the house or leave butts in the yard. Recycle and tie off garbage. No shoes in the house- bring slippers.
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!
We spent memorial weekend at this lovely home hosted by Greta, Andrea, and Toby. They were wonderful in making sure our stay was comfortable in every way. The home itself is beautiful and peaceful, located on a private nature preserve but very close to town. They have a nice outdoor area to lounge around and watch the birds, rabbits, and deer roaming. Since the weekend turned out to be cold and rainy, we ended up spending most of our time indoors. Luckily, they have a good collection of DVDs and vinyl records, which we played alongside the crackling fireplace. We also took drives to the local wineries and farms, where we picked up some food and wine to do a "cookout" indoors. They do have a BBQ grill, but because of the rain, we did our cooking in their kitchen which was stocked very well with pretty much everything you would need. I do hope to visit again in the future and hopefully the weather will be friendly next time around :)
Greta was incredibly accommodating to us & her house is in a fantastic position, just off the main street in Southold. Close to all amenities, but feels very remote & private. The garden is a sunspot & we spent some lovely hours relaxing in the garden, watching the birds, rabbits and deer wandering around.
The house is spacious and the kitchen well-stocked with all appliances you might need. Would highly recommend.
Place was really amazing. Great location near all - wineries and village. Secluded spot. Great fireplaces indoor and out. Ton of vintage old records to listen to.
All in all a fantastic experience.
Greta's home in Southold was fantastic; its on a certified wildlife preserve so you'll see no shortage of animals wandering around her property. The space is super comfortable for a relaxing weekend away on the North Fork, my fiancee and I had a fantastic time for her birthday.
