Walking distance to a big bay beach and a short drive to the villages of East Hampton and Amagansett, with Montauk, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor all about a pretty 20, 25 minute drive, depending on summer traffic.
Very Private--You will be the ONLY guests during your stay, and your private room has its own private entrance to come and go any hour. You have your own private mini fridge, microwave, cable TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioner, heat (if needed), bath and beach towels, shampoo, soap, and a queen bed in your private quiet room. Smoking is permitted outside your room in your private backyard area.
Please check "Calendar" for free nights. Prices shown in the calendar are the same regardless if 1 or 2 total guests for the one bedroom.
2 Persons, both 21 or over is the Max # of guests.
Last minute bookings may be ok.
I welcome all inquiries.
But please, I prefer you inquire first and we briefly say hello and chat through messaging--Before you officially book your reservation.
ALL guests MUST BE 21 or over please, no exceptions. Thank you.
When you inquiry, please first specify that ALL guests are 21 years old or over, purpose for your trip, and whether you have a car---although it is a non issue, it is country out here, and even though cottage house is walking distance to a big bay beach, restaurant, bar, bus stop and a deli, it is so much easier and freeing to explore the villages, beaches, and restaurants with a car. Taxis can sometimes be expensive and busy--especially in the summer. I use the Airbnb strict refund policy so please review before booking.
Sorry NO pets for guests, no exceptions, please do not ask, sorry...........
Spacious private sunny quiet fresh and clean modern bedroom with Serta Queen for 1 or 2 persons, with a private entrance to come and go as you wish any hour, anytime. This lovely room is in the back of the home and you enter and exit through sliding doors directly into your room with a key lock. There is also a sliding screen door with a lock you can use for fresh air. The small backyard is only used by you.
Also, the good news is your section of the house and room is SEPARATE from the rest of the house by a locked door at the end of your hallway. This offers you great quiet and privacy.
It's a laid back, relaxed, and very informal atmosphere at this country cottage home in lovely Springs (of Jackson Pollock fame) in East Hampton NY. From the cottage house, you can take a one minute drive to view a large bay beach, or walk it if you wish to stay -- it is only a few blocks away -- lounge, swim, watch the boats go by while sitting on a huge lovely bay beach. There are public bathrooms in the summer at this bay beach so you can stay all day.
Your PRIVATE modern large south facing ROOM INCLUDES in it:
A new and firm QUEEN SERTA Perfect Sleeper mattress. New brown wicker furniture.
CABLE TV with 80 plus channels and a remote control
A new AIR CONDITIONER with remote control and temperature control is in your window. There is a screen sliding door for fresh air.
MINI FRIDGE Your new Avanti fridge may be filled occasionally with some few simple surprises.
MICROWAVE. Your own new stainless steel Emerson.
A large master closet with hangers as well as a second closet with shelves. There are two 2-drawer brown wicker dressers.
Light wood hardwood floors.
Huge mirror is your room.
Plastic silverware, glass wine glasses, ceramic coffee cups and instant coffee, half & half, sugar provided.
Bottled water is provided chilled in the fridge.
Shampoo and liquid body soap provided.
White opaqueish curtains
Clean nice brand new 300 count cotton sheets.
Clean bath towels in room.
New huge Lands End beach towels are provided.
Two outdoor lounge chairs, a table, Citronella candle, shell ashtray, and a flatwoven rug are just outside your entrance for outdoor seating admist a few flowers.
Parking in the private driveway.
There is also heat if renting early spring, late fall or winter.
Further explanation of privacy offered...In addition to the sliding door entrance in the room, your room also has a regular door which leads into the house to a small hallway with a modern bathroom with a bathtub and shower across the hall outside your room for your full use. Again the full bath is outside your room in the private hallway.
To add to your privacy, there is ALSO another additional locked door at the end of your hallway which SEPARATES your bedroom and bath from the rest of the house for additonal privacy and quiet. The hallway and another locked unused bedroom assists as a sound barrier between you and the host.
The cottage house has one and a half baths in total. The host uses the house's half bath in his section of the cottage. But if your stay is longer than one night, the hallway door may be knocked and opened to use the shower in the bathroom in your hallway, outside your room. However, the host will always shower when guests are out to retain your privacy. If staying just one night, the host usually showers before and after your stay. Regardless, your private bedroom remains unentered and undisturbed during your stay.
Pictures included are of the actual lifeguard (summer season) bay beach near your room. Sunbathe during the day. Many come to watch the boats and the sun which sets over this enormous bay beach. Ocean beaches, villages of Amagansett, Wainscott and East Hampton are less than an app 8 or 10 minute drive each. Montauk takes about 20 or 25 minutes or so, pretty drive. Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton are about a straight app 20 minutes away. Also near is The Point, and other restaurants nearby with harbor views. Watch the sunset while you dine. One lovely cozy restaurant Michaels near the bay is a very short walk. Also walking distance is a deli and local bar.
Come and go at will and relax casually in a modern large comfortable quiet room with alot of privacy for a nice low price in a high priced market..
Looking forward to hearing from you... Its casual, breezy and beautiful here near the bay. :)

John was very accommodating and helpful during our stay. We were running late on the way up and he waited around for us. The room was described perfectly. It was private and quiet in the woods of East Hampton. John provided us with beach towels, waters, and snacks.. even Tate's Cookies (my girlfriend's favorite)! I would reccommend this listing for anyone searching for a "no frills" room in the Hamptons.
We loved the place and John was a fantastic host!
The place is accurate as described , and John was very meticulous down to the tiniest details. He was very attentive and yet he was kind enough to allow us our privacy. The room was clean , comfy and cosy. It was such a great experience that we will definitely be back !
The room was private and very clean. John was very good at communicating with me. It was a very pleasant stay!
The description was really accurate. John was helpful at all times and we had a quiet and very pleasant stay.
John and his room was great! John was extremely easy to communicate with, and quickly and easily answered all of our questions, from general to minute. The room was just like pictured, and was exactly what we needed as both a comfy touch-down spot in between adventuring and a place to get ready before the family wedding. It was also very private, which was perfect since we came and went during all hours of the day. He provided extra amenities that other reviewers have mentioned (cookies, beach towels!) and even umbrellas since he knew it would rain during our 5-day stay. We absolutely recommend staying at John's place!
We had a great time staying at John's. The room was just like the description and very private. He provided wonderful complimentary items. It is extremely close to all the Springs has to offer, especially Bay beach. It was also great for quick trips to Amagansett and Montauk. This place is a great value for a nice weekend trip.
John was very helpful with the luggage and the beverages and snacks were a very nice touch. The room is well equipped with a microwave, fridge and everything you need. The location is excellent for exploring the Hamptons even though a car is always necessary there(as John had recommended as well). The beach around the corner is very pretty and not very crowed which we liked a lot.
About the Host, John
Your host is a male in his early 40s. Hosting style very nice and relaxed and responsible. But I do get busy, whether working, or out on the boat for leisure trip, so I am looking generally for independent guests who desire a very private nice clean comfortable sunny large room with all the amenities and private entrance of a private space--and you are the only guests-- But I am friendly and always happy to help with any questions or requests to ensure you have everything you need to be fully comfortable and feel at home.
