About the property

Elegant, private, pristine two bedroom bungalow/guest house is located on 1.5 acre family compound in the desirable Hither Hills area on Montauk.

Stroll down to Gurney's Inn for dinner or enjoy their renovated spa!

Light and airy, the care and attention to detail in this home's design is evident in every room. Pyramid ceiling with skylight floods the main room with light during the day, and offers the stars to view at night. Bamboo floors, inlaid doors, solid maple kitchen cabinetry, central air and WiFi access all contribute to its unsurpassed comfort and beauty.

The cottage is located approximately 50 yards from the main house residence, and we are always available on site for any questions, advice or recommendations during your stay - but far enough away for your complete privacy. As the guest house is part of our single family residence, we fully comply with the new Town of East Hampton rental registry law, which do not require resident home owners to secure a registry number if the home is owner occupied during a rental.

This house is perfect for a small family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this home and we have been renting houses in Montauk for over 20 years. The cottage is big for a 2 bedroom home and immaculate. The craftsmanship is gorgeous. Perfect location in Hither Hills, with the owners providing passes to private Hither Hills beach, in addition to all other private beaches in town of East Hampton. Owner was extremely responsive, and always available to answer any questions. We will definitely stay here again!

Adorable cottage - excellent for young families

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to take our two young kids (a 3- and a 1-year old) to Montauk, which was a first for us. We stumbled on this cottage and it couldn't have been more perfect. It is very clean with minimal furniture, which is great when you have little kids. The fact that the home is all on one-level is also a plus--there are no stairs to worry about. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a BBQ on the back porch, which is helpful. We cooked in most nights. The location is wonderful too. The home is on a cul-de-sac and we were able to play outside without worrying about cars or traffic. Also, the home comes with a key and parking pass to the Hither Hills beaches. The home is close enough to the beach that walking is doable if you prefer. We walked to the beach after dinner a couple of times to fly kites. Jennifer, the owner, is very kind and genuinely wants her guests to have an enjoyable stay. My family fell in love with Montauk and this cottage. We are already looking forward to next summer.

Lovely cottage, private setting

  • 5 of 5

This is our 7th visit to this cottage. It has high quality furnishings, great beds, and all amenities. The kitchen is well appointed if you want to eat in, and house has all amenities you want - WIFI, Apple TV, etc. The beach pass allows keyed access to private beaches along Old Montauk highway, or you an simply walk down hill to beach. Montauk has great restaurants, har-tru town tennis courts, and of course all manner of water sports. Owners live on property in main house, and are very lovely people, helpful with questions or problems, but also respect your privacy. I would definitely recommend this cottage to family or friends.

The Best of Montauk!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Montauk for at least 17 years and this was by far our finest vacation. Although the weather could have been better, our cottage made up for the bit of rain that we had to endure! The day of our arrival, we found the cottage spotless. It was as if no one had ever stayed there before! For 7 nights we truly felt that we were the owners of this beautiful piece of paradise. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were most comfortable and the appliances were first rate. The living room furniture was extremely comfortable which is usually not the case. The walk to the private beach was no more than 6 minutes and worth every step. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the serenity of Montauk and it's most beautiful beaches and natural surroundings. When and if you desire more of the commercial side of the area, then your car will get you there in minutes. We have found our new vacation home and hope that it will be here for us for many summers to come. The Kennedys'
