This cottage is beautifully located on Great Pond on one-half acre in the heart of Long Island's North Fork. The lakefront is secluded from neighboring properties and is superb for swimming, boating and fishing. Swimming in Long Island Sound is just six blocks away at Kenney's Beach. Dine on the deck with a sunset view of the lake and then stargaze with no interfering city street lights.
Cottage has two bedrooms accommodating up to four people, an all-electric kitchen with microwave and coffee maker, internet access and a TV and DVD player. Pets allowed with prior approval and signed pet agreement.
The property is on a beautiful one half lot with wooded and open areas and a private bulkheaded lakefront. It is ideal for families with young children who like to explore. The house comes completely furnished, with the exception of towels and linens.
Just down the road at the end of the lake is Peconic Dunes Camp, a summer camp operated by Suffolk County. The village of Southold is just a five minute drive away, as well as 30 of the North Fork's finest wineries. Other local visitor attractions include the historic port village of Greenport, Horton's Point Lighthouse, and Goldsmith's Inlet County Park.
My husband and I rented this cottage for most of the summer and couldn't be happier with it. We lovingly refer to this place as The Pond Shack. The house is small and rustic so if you want a luxurious rental, this isn't for you. But if you want a low key retreat at an unbeatable price in an absolutely gorgeous location with beautiful views of the Great Pond (it's really more of a lake) and a 5 minute walk to the beach, then look no further. This place is perfect for 2 couples or a couple with kids. The pond is clean and not scummy - great for swimming or just watching the water. The best thing about this place is that you feel totally in nature. We've seen a ton of Osprey, swallows, a cardinal and of course geese and there's even a swan that lives on the pond too. There are also turtles in the pond, and deer and rabbits all around the neighborhood. There are great walking/running trails just up the street and of course gorgeous Kenney's Beach with uninterrupted sound-front stretches of sand (and rocks too - bring aqua socks if you have them!). We like to walk over and watch the sunset and the water is calm and great for swimming. The owner Larry is great and we've enjoyed meeting him and interacting with him throughout our stay. He's always been very friendly, responsive and helpful. We love the North Fork and couldn't be happier to have found this gem. So sad the summer's almost over but we will definitely be back!
this cottage needs a lot of TLC, which the owner, who resides in CA, doesn't care.
No amenites-toilet paper, paper towels, pot holder, dish soap, sponge, etc.
Broken curtain rods, curtains not long enough for windows in bedroom.
WIFI maybe accessible on the outside deck pointing at house next door where modem is. Owner should get cable for the price he's charging guests.
Broken storm door, broken ice trays, broken web chairs on deck.
Beds were uncomfortable. Dirty pillows. I bought my own sheets, blankets and pillows.
Yard by pond is covered in geese poop.
3 nights too many. One star too many
The property is quite lovely, the lake breath taking. The inside of the cottage was the issue, It was dated and quite dirty. I must admit that after a trip to kmart for supplies and a good cleaning my family ended up having a OK time. A big plus was the owner Larry who attempted to rectify the issues we had as best as he could. We also had lovely neighbors who made the time at the cottage enjoyable. I would not stay at this property in the future however I would rent another property from Larry the owner.
The property is beautiful, large yard, beautiful lake however, the house was dated and quite dirty. After a good cleaning my family and I did have a lovely time fishing and exploring the area; we also enjoyed our neighbor and their wonderful daughters. I would not rent the cottage again but I would rent another property from Larry the owner, he responded promptly to my emails and rectified the issues I had as best as he could.

This little cottage is perfectly located. It sits directly on the pond and is walking distance from the lovely Kenney's Beach. The setting is beautiful, I have admired this little house and the location for years and finally rented the weekend of 4th of July. We had a great time. The house is surprising well laid out and our family of four was comfortable and we really enjoyed ourselves. The added bonus to this vacation rental is Larry, the homeowner. I spoke with him a number of times by phone and e-mail. He could not be a nicer man, he was back in touch immediately, very accommodating and extremely easy to do business with-which is not always the case when dealing with homeowners. I would give Larry an excellent review. I look forward to doing business again with him in the future and would rent this cottage at any time.
