My first time out to the North Fork was 29 years ago for a family visit. I stayed in Orient with my two small children at that time. I fell in LOVE with this area and have been coming out ever since. My sons have spent every summer vacation out here swimming, boating, water skiing, and making friends. My husband and I bought a home in Orient 15 years ago. It is my place of residence when I am not working in New Jersey. We bought this home in Greenport in 2009 decided to list this properly as a vacation rental. It's a very lovely place, simple and comfortable. There is almost always a breeze under the large tree in the back yard. Lying in the hammock and looking down the waterway all the way to shelter island is so relaxing.
Maria purchased this House in 2009

Definitely a peaceful retreat!
I loved starting my day with a cup of coffee and sitting on the patio overlooking the inlet - watching the birds and the boats. So beautiful and so tranquil. It was also a wonderful spot for grilling and enjoying a glass of wine. So basically I really never needed to leave! But we did - to the beach and the wineries, the charming town of Greenport, and an evening in Shelter Island. We also loved taking the kayaks out. And the interior of the house is lovely - very comfortable and well equipped. And the owner was great to check in with us. We didn't need anything but she was very available if anything came up. Would love to come back!
Fun and Serene
Best North Fork rental ever! Gorgeous spot with kayaks, nearby beaches, lots of grass to play in and a dock for watching the local heron. The house is comfortable, well equipped and immaculate. Maria provided for all our needs. I could not have asked for a better spot for our family vacation.
Beautiful part of the world!
We have stayed at this beautiful location before and always had a wonderful time. There is so much to do in this area and our whole family (ages 3, 4, 5, 7 and 7 and their parents) who had not been here before can't wait to come back next year! I have also recommended it to friends. The property is set on a quiet, picturesque inlet and we all enjoyed the opportunity to use the kayaks and relax on the property and appreciate the views including a beautiful heron who would glide past each day.
The sandy beach at Norman E. Klipp Marine Park is just a short paddle from the house. We also took an excellent boat ride on Glory from the harbor in Greenport which the kids loved, thanks to Capt. Dave who welcomed our tribe of 11 warmly and was terrific with the kids. We enjoyed the local wineries Kontokosta and Croteaux and there are many more to go! Greenport has a great busy downtown shopping area with many restaurants, ice cream parlors, coffee shops, bakeries, a supermarket and a carousel for the little ones. We have enjoyed delicious meals at The Frisky Oyster, Noahs and Porto Bello. We had a great excursion to Shelter Island, an easy short ferry ride away. Harbes Farm in nearby Mattituck provided much fun for the children and a little further along is Love Lane Kitchen and Lombardi’s market – not to be missed! Orient, in the other direction, is also a very attractive place to visit with a state park which offers more activities and wildlife.
The owner went to a lot of trouble to make us feel welcome. In fact we found everyone we came into contact in the area very gracious and friendly. We’d love to return to this place where we have such great memories of good times.
Northfork Wine Tour weekend
Lovely home. Immaculate and having all the comforts of home. Magnificient view, quiet neighborhood, close to town. Homeowner very accommodating and friendly. Looking forward to another "Northfork Wine Tour" weekend either in the fall or next spring. Yes, definitely a do again!
Really Great Place to Vacation in Greenport!
My wife and I needed an escape for our wedding anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location and a relaxing atmosphere. We were also very close to all the local attractions (wineries, restaurants, beaches and more). The house was well stocked with supplies, the interior had all the modern accommodations and the house owner made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. We spent our evenings sipping wine on the back lawn overlooking the inlet water channel.
Serene, tranquil, peaceful,... just beautiful!!!
What a beautiful location! We are more than happy to have found this cozy and tastefully furnished rental. The views are simply gorgeous and the setting is very peaceful - it's perfect for a relaxing vacation. We were four adults and three children. Every day we would fish, take the kayaks out, swim, BBQ, relax in the hammock, ... we loved the place so much, we didn't even go to the beach at first :) And Maria was absolutely lovely! This is definitely a place we are coming back to.
