About Susan Swobodzinski

My husband grew up in Sag Harbor (when it was still a factory town). After we married, we built a home in the Village, which we lived in for 38 years. Our daughters were born and educated here, graduating from Pierson High School. Upon retiring from my teaching position at Pierson, we decided to move closer to our daughters and so sold the Village house. The move provided the benefit of being near our grandchildren, as well.

Susan Swobodzinski purchased this cottage in 1978

Why Susan Swobodzinski chose Sag Harbor

This cottage has been in our family since 1978. My parents built it as a retirement home in the Hamptons. Although the family no longer lives on the East End, we maintain the cottage so our grandchildren can enjoy the same experiences as our own children did. My daughters still always speak of how blessed they were to grow up in Sag Harbor, where every day was an adventure.

What makes this cottage unique

The property was selected because of it's private neighborhood and proximity to special amenities. It is 5 minutes to the Village of Sag Harbor, 5 minutes to the ocean, and 8 minutes to the bay beaches.

"Sag Harbor, Hampton's Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The Oak Tree Cottage is a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The cottage is close to the village and ocean, yet nestled in the quiet woods. If you are looking for an immaculate, well maintained property for a great value, Oak Tree Cottage is the place to go. The yard is fenced in with complete privacy and has a patio with a gas grill for when you are too tired to go out to dine. The Cottage also has an outdoor shower for that refreshing feel after a day at the beach! For the past 6 years, I have stayed here and it is the only place in the Hamptons I will visit year after year.

Lovely, peaceful getaway by the sea

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and was perfect for our young family. It's within a short drive of several local beaches and has a (hot water!) outside shower which was just the thing for de-sanding ourselves...Susan was very responsive and welcoming and I hope we'll be back next year.

Great House for 4 Adults

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed the house and location. It was very clean and well kept.

We loved the quick ride into Sag Harbor and short trip to Mecox Beach in Bridgehampton.

The neighborhood was very quiet and nice as well.

I would highly recommend the house and we hope to stay there again!

Perfect place for a couple with friends or another couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the house with a friend of ours 4 nights. The house is very clean and has absolutely everything you need from utensils and pots in the kitchen to beach chairs. The only thing you need to bring with you if you are planning to cook is spices and oil. There is a grill outside but we didn't use it. The beds are comfortable and the linens were all clean. The towels in the bathroom were new and luxurious which we absolutely loved.

The location of the house allows you to go to East Hampton, West Hampton and Southampton for lunch or dinner. There is a very beautiful vineyard (Wolffer Vineyard) 5 minutes away from house. We went there twice. We highly recommend staying at this house.

The cottage is nestled among the oak trees in a rural setting, yet it is a stone's throw to all activities (nightlife), and the magnificent East End beaches.
