Maureen & Alan were absolutely wonderful hosts! They made us feel very welcomed and were a joy to chat with! Maureen was very responsive to any question that I had durning the booking and after. She also had some fantastic recommendation for vineyards to visit and some restaurants in the area! The cottage was cute and very comfortable with a lovely view over the pond from the adirondack chairs out front. This place has everything you need for a little getaway to the seaside! We came out with a 5 month old and it was easy to accommodate all of us! (We were also able to see the larger house on the property and can't wait to find an available weekend to return with some friends!)
After reading the reviews prior to arriving, we were confident that our stay would be most peaceful. To no surprise, the weekend was perfectly serene. Maureen text us shortly before we arrived letting us know the cottage was all ready and Alan was most helpful with restaurant suggestions/winery recommendations. Maureen and Alan allowed us to enjoy the weekend peacefully while ensuring their help was available if needed. This cute cottage is a perfect getaway in an even more perfect place.
Maureen's cottage was delightful. It is right on the lake and just a few minutes walk from the beach. During our time there, we also ate at some fantastic restaurants in the area and went to a few wineries as well. (There are over 50 wineries!) It was a really peaceful and beautiful weekend.
Beautiful cottage with a great location/views in North Fork. Was very easy to travel to all the popular wineries and dining in the area. Maureen was very hospitable and my stay went smoothly. Couldn't have asked for anything more. I would definitely return and recommend to others!
This was my first experience with using airbnb and we had a great time! The Southold Cottage was splendid with a serene tranquil stay and comforts. Maureen, the host, was super friendly and responded to any inquiry we had about the area in prompt manner but left us to our own time and privacy. The morning sunrise on the deck and then the dock is perfect. There are towns about the area and eating out was no problem but the cottage has a kitchen and eating in and grilling was the best. Again, Maureen gave us a feeling of comfort and peace. A perfect getaway for a long weekend. Thank you Maureen!
My husband and I shared a wonderful week (our first as a married couple!) in this cottage. It was the perfect respite for a relaxing honeymoon. The views of the lake and beach were beautiful. The cottage is in a quiet spot on the North Fork, but is close to great restaurants, vineyards and other village attractions. Maureen was available via email to answer any questions or concerns. My only negative was the lack of refrigeration space in the cottage. We brought a lot of food with us, since we were staying for a whole week, and were not prepared to encounter a mini-fridge in the cottage. Luckily, there was a full-size fridge in the garage that we were able to access. All in all it was a great experience. We would definitely stay here again!

About the Host, Maureen
Professional couple who loves the North Fork and has lots of knowledge to share.
Have done a lot of traveling and love to return to our home away from home in the North Fork. It's a special microclimate with light and sun year round.
We have been hosting for some time now and have enjoyed each and every guest. One of our favorite things is our collection of signed rocks.
We live on the same block as the properties. We do try to meet each of our guests. We provide recommendations and yet don't interfere unless asked.
Escape from the city, visit the wineries or just inhale and exhale nature, flowers and sunshine.
