Why Owner chose East Hampton

This property I purchased for a house flip. A few weeks into this project I fell in love with it and knew I couldn't sell it. So I spent the next 8 months ripping apart the entire house, redesigning the layout, moving walls, replacing all plumbing & electrical adding state of the art AC & Heating systems. I put this house together the way I wanted, using only the best materials. I personally designed & installed all the tile, marble, kitchen cabinets, windows/doors, outside deck, everything down to picking the paint colors. The house came out fantastic and it is here for you to enjoy. 8 out of 10 people said the pictures don't do it justice.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits this home has to offer... 1) A heliport. Fly in if you wish or have a helicopter come take you for a ride. 2) Privacy. No neighbors, not even across the river. Complete solitude & only a 5 minute ride to shopping, gas & restaurants. 3) Unbelievable panoramic views. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun set directly over the other side of the river. After that gather around the fire pit on the deck. 4) The beach. Take a walk down the staircase to the river. Here I have a rowboat, canoe, 7' float island, fire pit, picnic table, chairs, propane grill for you to use. 5) You can bring your own boat to use on the river during your stay. Enjoy!

Modern Seclusion Away From The Modern Life

  • 5 out of 5
As you enter the driveway, you will see it descend into the thick woods, already giving you a sense of seclusion. About a quarter mile down, the scenery opens up to a cozy wood house with a backdrop of a very wide Connecticut River along with an expansive view of thousands of trees nestled on a large hill, not a neighbor in site. At this point, everyone is "in-ah" of the view while at the same time questioning the accuracy of the car's GPS.

The entrance of the house is bright and open, a dining room to your left and a living room to your right with three different entries to the kitchen in the back, an open concept floor plan. Although you'll find that the kitchen is beautiful, you'll find yourself standing in front of the sliding glass doors (leading out onto a massive deck), again, taking in the spectacular view.

There are 4 cozy bedrooms, each lending a view of a wide backyard including some views of the river. Both bathrooms are spacious with good water pressure. Every room in the house is clean and nothing feels damp and dreary. In addition to the bedrooms downstairs, there is a quiet room to watch TV, read, or play games. There is plenty of storage for your bikes and hiking hear.

There are about a hundred steps leading down to the shore of the river where you will find chairs, a fire pit, some small rafts and boats to take out, which we were brave enough to take out on a rainy day. Not being experienced in rowing a boat, we were thankful that the river current pushes into shore.

We had a party of six friends, there was more than enough room in the entire house for everyone to stretch out and relax. Our goal was to get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC and this delightful stay at the house had offered more than what we expected or asked for in a peaceful, comforting setting. During our first day, after getting settled in, Dean met up with us down by the river to see if there was anything we needed. He showed us how to use the amenities, .i.e., the entertainment system (indoors and out), fire pit on the deck, washer & dryer. The owner is very pleasant and hospitable and it's evident that he has put in a lot of thought and hard work into creating a perfect secluded getaway. Within the first two hours my friends and I had already decided to make this house an annual fall retreat.

Outstanding Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
As you drive down the long driveway to your destination it becomes magical. The house sits on a beautiful hillside with an unbelievable view of the Connecticut River. Everything was perfect for our weekend getaway celebration with family and friends. The inside was sparkling clean and organized with the best of amenities and the fabulous home was great for entertaining, but private and comfortable for sleeping. The deck was beyond cool and this vacation rental went beyond our expectations to provide the best of memories for everyone with singing around the firepit and on the balcony. Thank you Dean for all your talents in creating such a beautiful home and for sharing it with others.

Perfect "home away from home"

Perfect "home away from home"
  • 5 out of 5
Our 10 day stay at the "River House" was exceptional! We came to Connecticut from Calgary Alberta, Canada, over 2500 miles away!!! Our son, wife & 2 boys, 9 & 6 , our niece, hubby & I stayed at the house for our visit for our daughter's wedding. The house is only a few minutes from St. Clement's Castle where the reception was held. Although we were quite busy with last minute wedding preparations, we managed to take in a few attractions. The boys went to a NY Yankees & Boston Red Sox game in Boston. They also visited the Barker Character, Comic & Cartoon Museum & the Comic Book Store in Cheshire. My son and husband took in the New England Air Museum.
This spacious house was a fantastic place for us to be all together at and a very comfortable "home away from home". The boys were able to explore the surroundings including the beach & were not restrained the way they would have been had we stayed at a hotel. They were awed with the resident praying mantis. The house is very well equipped with a large fridge with ice-maker, dishwasher and the washer and dryer came in handy. Being somewhat coffee snobs, my son and I were especially pleased to find a coffee grinder as I had brought a pound of coffee beans from home.!! The 2 sinked bathrooms were a big plus and the beds were comfortable!! We had several family dinners in the dinning room.
Our daughter and her wedding party came to the house to get ready for the wedding. The hairdresser and make-up artist were there at the same time and were able to set up their work station in separate spaces.
We really really enjoyed the huge deck, the stunning views of the river, the morning fog over the river, the fire pit, and even the outside television especially on our last day where we had a gathering of a few relatives who hadn't left for home yet. Also of note is the quiet, the privacy and distance away from the main road this property provides.
We were surprised at how trusting and easy going Dean the owner was. He came to see us the first morning we were there to give us a quick overview of the house and one other time when he was taking his boat out for a spin.
I am so thankful our daughter suggested this VBRO property. Staying in this house has made our stay in East Hampton a super positive experieince and has gone a long way in making a wonderful happy event in our family a precious memory! We would recommend the "River House" without hesitation! We wanted for nothing!
Thanks again Dean,
The Huck family

PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
My family of 8 had an amazing time at the River House. Everything was PERFECT! The house is immaculate with everything you need for the perfect vacation. Dean was perfect, responded quickly and supported me with all my complicated requests.The deck is just simply DIVINE! We spent every moment possible on the deck celebrating, enjoying the incredible view, watching movies, and listening to music. We visited Mohegan Sun for a few hours, but my 60 year old mother (birthday girl) was eager " to get her party on" back at The River House on the Simply Divine Deck.

We are already planning our next trip back to The River House.

Thank you Dean for offering a great space for a great experience.

the house is magnificent

  • 4 out of 5
The house is magnificent. Even with the long, long walk to the river, we had a relaxing and yet fun time at the house. We went on many adventures such as Mystic, and Ziplining at Empower... all within an hour of the house. We appreciated all of the amenities that the house came with and if you do rent here and want the most amazing breakfast in the world, go to O'Rourkes in Middletown.
