About Kerry Ruggi

Chris works as a public school teacher and Kerry in Human Resources at a major industrial company, teaching yoga in her spare time. Kerry's family has been coming to The North Fork for four generations!

Kerry Ruggi purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kerry Ruggi chose North Fork

This property only had one owner before Chris and Kerry purchased in 2013. Built in 1968 with an addition in 1978, this home offered everything Chris and Kerry wanted in a year-round weekend (and vacation) escape to the North Fork. With no neighbors behind and trees full of birds, it is a wonderful sanctuary for peaceful rejuvenation.

What makes this cottage unique

We spent the past six months completely rennovating the interior and updating the exterior of the home. This house has become our passion and pride, we've poured hours of hard work into creating a very special home with an amazing community of neighbors.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful home. I went for a girl weekend with friends and we loved every minute of our stay! The house easily slept all 6 of us and the outdoor space is fantastic. Walkable to a few vineyards and a very nice beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Southold, Ny

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Southold. The beautifully furnished house was perfect for our family of 6. There is also a great out door space and a private community beach a few blocks away. We celebrated a family birthday and everything we needed for cooking and grilling was supplied in this well appointed house. We highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful girls getaway in wine country!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this charming home near to the great wineries, restaurants and sights of North Fork! Kerry was so helpful and accommodating - she offered great suggestions for all activities and had all the things we needed in her charming and comfortable home. The location and setting was perfect- we wished we had more time to enjoy the home and the area! The two bathrooms was a huge plus.
