About this listing
Lovely studio apt with private entrance and parking in the heart of Long Islands farm country.Scenic Peconic River view from our huge shady veranda. Located just off the L.I.Expressway (no Fri. night traffic!) at the gateway to the east end and convenient to both the Hamptons and North Fork. A true garden lovers getaway with extensive flowers, vegetable and fruits and even our own apiary providing local raw honey. Near lots of wineries, restaurants and 2 miles from Tanger outlet mall shopping & top 5 rated Splish Splash Water Park. .Adjacent to the Peconic River for canoeing, kayaking, fishing or birding. The quiet winding country roads on either side of the river are a favorite destination for walking/joggers, biking and motorcycle touring.Riverhead town is a great central location and an easy drive to bay and ocean beaches. The area is still very much a rural farming area and a foodies delight with many pick your own fields,farmers markets, farm stands, wineries, horse, buffalo, and goat farms and even a potato vodka distillery and tasting room! We have an awesome Aquarium in town and lots of inexpensive small cafe style eateries for those on a budget.
No smoking please
What a magical space, I couldn't believe each time I we went out the highway was around the corner and shopping within 10 min.
We had a most wonderful time and Shirley and Everett are wonderful hosts. The nearby town and ocean made our stay convenient, and the lake made it tranquil.
Cudos to Shirley and Everett and the spirit of their family.
Shirley is a wonderful host.
Her place was so relaxing, if we could have, we would have stayed a week longer. The place is a "relaxation zone".
Shirley and her husband Everett created a great place with a beautiful garden, where you feel like coming home.
The little studio was just perfect for us, very romantic.
If you have the chance to be in that area, I highly recommend Shirley´s place.
If you are little bit of a bigger party - Shirley has also a little cottage with a private terrace available.
Thank you very much for a relaxing and wonderful stay.
My partner and I had a very relaxing time staying at Canoe Lake Studio. After spending a couple of busy weeks in New York city we were eager to head to the countryside to enjoy some quiet time with the trees and beautiful scenery. Shirley and Everett made use feel very welcomed. The place was very clean and well organised with complimentary snacks to enjoy. We had a great time driving along both the North and South Fork with easy access to the Hamptons, Greenport and Montauk. Highly recommend!
Although we did not have much contact with Shirley as we were out exploring, we still felt extremely welcomed!
The studio was filled with treats, juice, yogurt, fruits, fresh jam etc… which was amazing to wake up to…
The grounds are peaceful and lovely...
The locations was a bit farther from the beach then we would like but def central enough to go up to the vineyards or south to the ocean.
My husband and I had never seen that side of Long Island before- very rural and very beautiful!
Our separate space was private and beautiful- clean and comfortable. Shirley greeted us with open arms and extra touches to make our stay special. We were visiting family in the area and our only regret was not having more time to talk to Shirley and her husband!
We had a wonderful stay! The loft was all it was promised to be and more. It was easy to find and a convenient location. The best part were the hosts :) We were greeted with a warm welcome and so enjoyed every little special touch. A lot of thought and love goes into each guest they have and it shows! We highly recommend staying here!
Wonderful place! Very cozy and charming!! I would absolutely stay here again!!
