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!


Exceptional! 5/5 -

We were very please with the lake house. Everything was very clean! The living room area was much bigger and so spacious compared to what the picture looks like. There are a lots of windows and ceiling fans that made the house feel so fresh. It was so nice to spend the day at the beach and enjoy the refreshing lake when returning. The lake was so peaceful and clean. We explored all around the lake and saw lots of deer and wildlife. My husband loved the privacy and the nature all around the house. Its located in a perfect spot with such a short trip to Southampton's beautiful beaches and town. We are looking forward to coming back!

Magical lake oasis with fireflies and butterflies

  • 5 of 5

The lake house is such a magical, relaxing wonderful escape. We had an absolutely blissful time...the lake is marvelous - clean clear and warm with beautiful swans and Lilly pads with lotus flowers. And the yard is perfect for relaxing family BBQs. The house is super adorable and comfortable with everything you need.

The whole experience was just perfect - we rent a lot of houses all over the world and this was our favorite yet!

Ideal setting for those wanting to enjoy nature and be on the water.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
