Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Montauk - The Love Shack

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 in the living room. 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 pulls out to become a 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.

The Rental Registry law in the Town of East Hampton does not apply to this property.

About Dana Arikian, danakris@mac.com

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, danakris@mac.com purchased this house in 1977

Why Dana Arikian, danakris@mac.com chose Hamptons

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 dinner.

Great Location!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! The property is perfectly located with direct access to the lake (just about a "block" away) and a short walk or bike ride to the ocean. Easy drive to town or the Montauk marinas. Even though this property is attached to the owner's house, we hardly noticed. The front yard faces the road but the short dead end road is not frequently traveled so the yard feels very private. Our only negative comments are the bed was too soft for our liking and the kitchen was very sparsely equipped so if you plan to do a lot of cooking, you may be disappointed. Everything else was as described and we were very happy with our stay.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite part of Noel's apartment was the location! Bike ride into town for lunch or take a nice walk to ditch plains to watch the surfers. Every night we walked to the end of the street to watch the beautiful sunsets over lake Montauk. The cottage was clean and functional and was the perfect size for two of us and my mom and sister who came to visit for a night. Noel and his daughter Dana were very accommodating and we had a lovely stay!

Great house in Montauk

  • 4 of 5

We spend a wonderful week in Noel's cottage: it is well located in Montauk (just a two minute drive from town center) on a quiet street. The house is very functional with a large bedroom with a nook which was practical for our baby bed. There is a kitchen table and the living room is roomy enough. The kitchen has all the basics. Our 19M son loved the very nice garden which had a nice seating area for outdoor dining. The gas BBQ was also put to good use. Noel and his daughter Dana were super reactive to all our requests and we had a great stay. Highly recommend.
