About the property

Secluded 1 Br Cottage on the Lake, Close to Ditch with OS Shower & Fabulous Yard

Spend your summer at South Lake. This one bedroom, one bath cottage has everything you need for an incredible summer getaway. It's location cannot be beat. South Lake beach is right out your door. A popular place for Stand Up Paddle boarding, incredible sunsets over the lake & a great beach for small children, you won't find yourself fighting over a parking spot because you are just steps away.

Walk over to the Crow's Nest for drinks or dinner. Ride your bike or drive to Ditch Plains. It's only a three minute bike ride. An outside shower offers options for cleaning off after the beach and a pergola sits in the yard with a dining table underneath. There's even a patio with a ping pong table.

Inside, the decor is simple & classic. Wide plank hardwood floors throughout, with white wainscoting & a tranquil grey on the walls. The kitchen is fully stocked & you will find a washer and dryer hidden away in the living room closet. The bedroom has a queen bed & closet, with a dresser and reading nook. The couch in the living room folds down to become a queen bed, so the house can sleep four guests. This is the perfect getaway for a couple, small family, or a group of friends to enjoy Montauk. There's also plenty of storage if you're spending the entire summer or for an extended winter stay.

Owner Noel Arikian is a local craftsman and artist who can give you excellent advice on restaurants & things to do. He is a wealth of knowledge about Montauk and everything wonderful it has to offer.

Great option in Montauk!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my wife and daughter. We had a great time! The house is clean, quiet, well situated, has everything you need. Short walk to the lake and bike ride to the beach. Short drive to town. Nice area in front to grill and relax.

Dana and her dad were very helpful and great hosts. In fact, the refrigerator stopped cooling all of a sudden and they arranged for a new one to be delivered right away, and gave us a cooler with ice for the meantime. Can't ask for anything better.

Definitely happy with our choice.

This house was perfect for our stay. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The property was located close to everything, town, beaches and restaurants. The best part was the access to the lake which was steps away from the home. A nice quiet beach for watching sunsets and swimming. We hope to be back again next year.

Memorial Day Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at the Lake Montauk cottage. The cottage was beautiful and is such an amazing location. The yard is huge and the lake is literally right down the street. It also was only a couple minutes drive to town and across the street from a gorgeous hiking trail. We will definitely stay here again for future trips. Dana was very accessible on text and all logistics were easy. Thank you!!

Cute House

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a weekend getaway with my parents, husband and 2 year old son. House was clean, well appointed and spacious enough for all of us. We went on a rainy weekend in May before the 'summer' season so were not able to take advantage of all the outdoor activities but the house and yard were well appointed with outdoor shower, ping pong table, paddle boards, bikes, etc! Wish we could have used them! Walking distance to a lake on a quite street and a very short drive to beach or town. Be sure to avoid the backyard. There was some miscommunication with daughter after I text her regarding some firewood that was in the front yard and visible from our driveway and received a stern text back advising to stay out of the backyard! Regardless, this house would be a perfect summer rental for a weekend or few weeks!

Great space in Montauk!

  • 5 of 5

Noel and Dana's place in Montauk was a fantastic getaway for our family for a few days in May! Beautiful weather, lovely yard, super close to Lake Montauk and a short walk to Ditch Plains beach. The place is nicely appointed and very cozy. We would absolutely return in the future. Highly recommended.
