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.

About Dana Arikian,

Noel is a local craftsman, artist & photographer. He has been living in Montauk since the early 70's but still enjoys it despite the recent changes. He keeps his property very well maintained. You may spot him smoking a cigar while he rides around on the tractor mowing the lawn, or out in his garage making furniture or framing artwork for other local artists.

Dana Arikian, purchased this house in 1977

Why Dana Arikian, chose Montauk

Location. Tranquility. Waves. Land. Noel likes to watch for Red Tail Hawks in his giant backyard, walk down to the lake to watch the sun set, and wander over to the Crow's Nest for drinks or dinner.

What makes this house unique

An impressive & eclectic mix of former tenants have called this place home. From celebrity chefs to local contractors, diamond dealers, socialites, photographers, artists, musicians, writers & bartenders have all had a hard time saying goodbye to Noel's rental, affectionately called the Love Shack.

Quiet retreat

We got what we wanted out of this VRBO. A quiet place to relax with all needed comforts. The owner has been very thoughtful in providing all the basic amenities. Would certainl6 return to this place when opportunity arises.

A Lovely Quiet Cottage Between Lake and Sea

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every detail of our week-long stay at The Love Shack. The cottage is situated between Montauk Lake and Ditch Plains Beach, just east of Montauk town center (ride a bike to town) on the road out to the Lighthouse. This is an ideal location with everything nearby. Best of all is the peace, quiet, and natural beauty of the street and property with easy access to all the excitement and great food available in town or out at the harbor, just a short drive away.

We loved the simple decor and art objects in this comfortable cottage, took most of our meals outside, and settled in immediately. Noel was a perfect host: kind, helpful, and respectful of our privacy.

Lovely outdoor shower. A perfect reatreat cottage. We spent the week biking, surfing, paddling and generally decompressing. Living on the memories of the peace and beauty of Montauk. Enjoy.

Cute lakeside cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this house and our trip to Montauk. The house was in the perfect location to several beaches, downtown and the lake. The house was clean and the owners are very friendly. Will definitely stay again.

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!!
