About Richard

I have travelled the world and this my favorite place to swim. Soft, silky, clean water with nothing to hurt you. No motor boats allowed. Warmer than the ocean or bay.

Richard purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard chose Hamptons

THE LAKE. Abounds in nature. Private. Tony award winning play written in this cottage. I bought the property and renovated in 2012. A true hidden Hamptons jewel.

What makes this cottage unique

The Lake. No motor boats. Clean water. Long sunsets. Secluded. Feels like a world away.

Escape the Hamptons traffic. Most guests like to spend better part of the day at the lake and visit ocean at off hours. What a relief!

The cottage is charming and very true to the photos and slightly better. The views from the cottage to the water and yard are spectacular. We had dinner on the lawn each night with tablecloth and candles and enjoyed the bbq. There was a 2 person kayak and a paddle board that came with the property and sat next to the private dock. We used these often to explore the peaceful and private pond. I was able to swim in mid June; the water was nice! The best part was Milo though! The next door neighbor's black lab that adopted our family and played with my daughters. He literally paddle boarded with Lily and did not fall or jump off! We are naming our new puppy Milo after him :).

Scerenity and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Such a find. Turn off the North Sea Road down a wooded gravel lane and scerenity awaits. The cabin was spotless. Wonderful natural light. Perfect quite at night makes for a full night's rest. Cable, wifi, everything easy and accessible. The lake is stunning and natural; no power boats allowed. No weeds and relatively deep make it swimmer's paradise. The sunsets are spectacular; soak them in while cooking on the BBQ or out in the kayak. A deli, Schmidts Market (great seafood and steaks), liquor store and North Sea Tavern (farm to table) is just a few minutes walk. Southampton Village is five minutes by car and multiple beaches less than 10 minutes away. My wife and I absolutely loved the place. We plan to make it an annual trip.

Wonderful Lakeside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a break from the city. We wanted something low key but close enough to Southampton's main street. The cottage fit the bill. It was bright and cozy and the property was magnificent and well kept. If you're a lake person, you'll appreciate the experience.

Cozy house, wonderful location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and very cozy and has a perfect location by the lake. The place is very quiet and relaxing, with a lot of light, a nice area of grass in front of the house with a BBQ and other amenities. The owners are really nice and helpful. The house is close to Southampton and it's easy to make excursions to the nearby beaches. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few weekends here and absolutely love this place. It is quiet and serene; you will get a great night sleep and wake up to the sound of birds chirping outside. A perfect getaway from the hectic NYC life. You can swim in the lake, go for bike rides, explore the waters with a kayak, or simply be lazy and read a book or nap in the hammock. Short drive to Main St in town for shopping and dining, but outdoor grilling at the cottage is a much better option. This place is a hidden gem of the Hamptons: away from crowds and very private. A truly idyllic location.

Incredibly serene scene with the wind rustling the leaves as you swing in the hammock, overlooking the reflected sun of the magical silky water of Big Fresh Pond...that you just swam about in.
