* More info on transferring from NYC:
We appreciate that you have many choices, so the following information is simply intended as an introduction to some of the options available to you, and is not meant to steer you in any particular direction.
Most people drive out from the city, but you can also catch the Hampton Jitney, (luxury coach with bathroom, wifi and snacks on board), picking up a hire car locally. It takes roughly 2 hours to get to Riverhead, where there is an Enterprise car rental across the road from the Jitney stop.
LIRR trains are good, but run infrequently to the east end and may involve changes. The nearest station is Mattituck, which is biking distance, but not walking distance. Other options are to take the LIRR train to Hicksville or Ronkokoma, then pick up a rental car there and drive the rest of the way.
Finally, we have some great guest reviews, which often include prior guest recommendations, so don't miss browsing them, then contact us if you have any other questions.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Guest accommodations are entirely private, not shared. You have your own parking space, a separate entrance, your own AC and heating controls, even your own secured wifi network.
Interaction with Guests
We're happy to meet guests on arrival to say hello and answer questions. For those who need a late check in, information is provided to all confirmed guests, so you're never under pressure to arrive by a certain time. We respect guest privacy, but we're never far away if needed.
Apart from being the sunniest town in New York State, Cutchogue is also one of the prettiest on the North Fork. We're surrounded by farms, vineyards, fine restaurants, stunning beaches, fabulous sunsets and so many different ways to relax and enjoy the bucolic ambience, there's something for everyone.
Public transportation for getting around the North Fork is slim to none. :-( Bring wheels. In winter, a 4WD or all wheel drive vehicle is recommended.
Other Things to Note
If you're interested to rent bikes, we recommend Dan's Bikes in Greenport. He delivers and picks up from our house, and here's our 2015 tip. The season only just got started and he was already maxed out this Memorial Day weekend, so to avoid disappointment, don't leave it until the last minute, try and book your bikes early!
There is a $50 end of stay cleaning fee per stay to include all linens and towels.
Smoking is permitted on the outside deck only, not inside the apartment.
No dogs, cats or other animals, sorry. We host guests who have severe allergies to pet dander, so there are no exceptions.
Maximum occupancy is 2 people. Children are people.
We trust you to let us know if an accident happens that damages our property as soon as possible, or at the latest on departure, so we can work it out. Similarly if something seems unusual or not working properly.
All confirmed guests are asked to complete a simple registration form on arrival with ID. Please contact us for details should you have any difficulty with this request. If you want the flexibility to arrive at a time of your own choosing, (we offer late check in, so feel free to check in any time), then you need to request the form at the time of reservation and get it back to us on or before 48 hours before arrival.
We are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged property, or bodily injury.
No overnight guests, additional guests or substitute guests without pre authorization. We reserve the right to say yes or no.
Thanks for your consideration!
