Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Long Island - Beach Glass Cottage

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, outdoor hot/cold shower, sleeps 6

This charming and affordable beach cottage is the perfect answer to your vacation needs! It is a true summer home!

First and foremost It is clean,clean,clean. Being someone who also uses Homeaway to rent properties, I know what I would want in a vacation rental and how I would expect it. Everything you need is there, fresh sheets,bath towels,beach towels,fully equipped kitchen,beach chairs and umbrellas! There are 3 bedrooms. The master has a king bed, the "middle" room has a set of bunk beds, and the "east" room has a full bed. There is a small bathroom inside and an exhilarating outdoor shower that is a must to experience!!

It is backed up to a nature preserve so privacy is no issue. A deck with an observation tower allows for spectacular bird and sunset watching. Nap in the enclosed front porch or take a beach chair and walk the 100ft. to the quiet Long Island Sound -(yes-a 100 feet, I measured it!!)to read or search for sea glass, or maybe just watch the sunset with the "sunset crowd"!

Perfect for a small family or couple there are many activities nearby. Wineries, Tanger Outlets, Splish Splash, local farm stands and farmers markets, golf and Atlantis Aquarium are just some of the many attractions only 12 minutes away.

Tom and myself would love to host you. Come and enjoy the beautiful north shore!

This was our fourth time back and our first visit in April. As always we found the house in pristine condition. With the beach just steps away we spent our mornings walking along the shore and since we were there for a week manged to go to a few nearby wineries and Greenport as well. This cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind, we are begining to think of it is our second home....

Great House, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the cottage and each time we leave we're looking forward to our next visit. Wading River is a great little town and there's lots to do on the North Fork. The cottage is so cozy, well maintained and has such attention to detail that's its also nice to just hang out. Debbie and Tom are friendly and accommodating and always have plenty of suggestions on what to do or where to go.

marvelous beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I arrived after a long and exhausting drive to find a lovely, quiet, and immaculate cottage . Debbie and Tom thought of everything - little crossword books, a beach welcome bag, interesting magazines and books, beach chairs, an outdoor shaded rear deck for morning coffee. the cottage was beautifully furnished and well kept. the beach was a short walk away , as was a 5 star restaurant. the beach itself is lovely, and one can take long walks along the shore each morning. having morning coffee on the upper rear deck, while watching the shorebirds over the marsh, was one of my favorite things to do. My entire family was in town for a wedding at East Wind Inn.They were totally envious of my cottage, as they stayed at ramadas and holiday inns a 30 minute drive away from wading river. I highly recommend this lovely cottage for anyone wanting a quiet seaside place to get away from it all. a campari to both of you !

A Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from this beach cottage, and we had a wonderful time. This house is very well set up for families, as it has three bedrooms, an outdoor shower, and plenty of safe outdoor places in which to play. The beach is only feet away, and there is a playground at the beach. There are also life guards at the beach to watch the little ones in the water. The owners are very helpful, and there are many attractions nearby, including wineries, North Fork towns, restaurants, beaches, hiking, etc. The property is very well maintained.

wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

Must say the photographs did not do the cottage justice. It was even nicer. We had the most restful vacation.The beach was close and I could relax knowing there was a lifegaurd there watching the kids,they even had a beach wheelchair ,at the

beach, that I could borrow to take my eighty year old mom down to the beach.The property was very clean,the carpet seemed brand new.

The owner and her husband were very down to earth and so helpful,they made us feel so relaxed and welcomed.

Would love to return and would recommend the cottage !

Great Beach House! Wonderful Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and decided to make this a vacation at the beach. This was the first time we rented a house versus staying in a hotel. What a wonderful experience! This house is great! Very clean and cozy. Short, easy 2 minute walk to the beach. Debbie and Tom met us at the house with a warm welcome and fresh flowers! We couldn't ask for a more friendly and gracious host! Thank you both for a very memoriable and enjoyable stay!
