Lovely Historic Landmark Farmhouse with Heated Pool near the Village & the Beach

Half Baths1
Space 204 m²
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 14 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, sleeps 10+.

Our lovely farmhouse is a wonderful place to lie back and take it slow. It is a special property that is designated one of East Quogue's historic landmarks - in fact, the first post box in the United States was erected in 1787 right around the corner.

The property has been completely and lovingly renovated with modern amenities and systems, and is extremely comfortable and very well-appointed, inside and out. This past year we added central A/C, a master bedroom suite, and a big dining/sitting room with wraparound windows!

The wraparound porch hosts several sitting areas as well as a shaded dining table and an outdoor fireplace. The back deck has another dining table and a gas grill immediately adjacent. The garden has lots of lilacs, lilies, ornamental grasses, and hydrangea, and the backyard is completely fenced and sports a 16' x 32' heated pool - there's a removable security fence to separate the pool from the backyard if desired.

Inside, there's a large living room with a 55" 4K HD TV over the fireplace and french doors to the porch, and a fully stocked, spacious country kitchen which opens to a large dining/sitting room with wraparound windows and another french door to the porch. Upstairs, there's a large and lovely master bedroom with another 55' 4K HD TV, en suite bathroom, walk-in closet, plus two bedrooms and another full bathroom.

There's lots of room to gather and entertain, as well as plenty of places to find solitude if that's what you crave.

Read, swim, eat, bask in the sun, watch the grass grow, take a nap. For a little adventure, take a short walk into town to the gourmet deli or the fine wine shop, or the cafe or the pub, or the local farm stand for fresh baked goods and fruits and vegetables right off the vine. Or visit the bait & tackle and stroll down to the bay to fish, or feed the ducks, or count the clouds. Or hop on a bike or in the car and take a short drive (8 minutes!!) to the gorgeous dunes at one of the world's most beautiful beaches. If it's culture you crave, don't miss the local galleries, vineyards, and world-class shopping.

And don't worry about anything – our property manager is available 24/7 if you have any questions at all or should something need attention.

At the end of the day, sit on the porch, watch the sunset, and tip a glass. Throw something delicious on the grill off the back deck. Roast marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace. Count the stars. Then slip into bed and sleep better than anyplace else...

A tidbit more: many of our guests use the Guest Cottage for extra friends, relatives, or child care. It is steps away just at the end of the driveway, yet it is privately set with its own gated enclosure, deck, full kitchen and full bath. It makes it very easy to be together when you want to, and not when you don't.

About homeowner

I bought the house as a getaway many years ago. Many well-spent hours and dollars have made it what it is today.

homeowner purchased this farmhouse in 1995

What makes this farmhouse unique

Aside from the fact that the house and property are beautiful, well-appointed, and very well-maintained, the avoidance of many stressful hours stuck in traffic trying to get out further east is a huge bonus!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Alison,

Thanks! We had a great stay at the house. It was absolutely beautiful and definitely added to a great vacation.

Thanks again!!

Beautiful Country Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and decorated in a charming style, and located on a quite secluded street with a beautiful heated pool in the backyard. Also, within driving distance of South, East, and West Hampton each of which is filled with beaches, shops and restaurants. The house felt like a home as soon as we arrived.

EXCELLENT summer stay

  • 5 of 5

This June we rented the farmhouse for the second time around because we loved the property so much! The home is just far enough from the city to feel like you've really gotten away, but is only a 2 hour train ride. The farmhouse is so charming and comfortable, with lots of great outdoor space for relaxing. We especially loved the great big front porch for a dining, relaxing, and sitting by the fire on a chilly evening. The backyard is also spacious and fenced in, great for our pup. Would definitely recommend!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

When booking this rental I did not know what to expect. The house turned out to be amazing. A friend and I were the first people to rent out the house after renovations have been done. Everything from the décor, to the amenities, to the location were perfect. The owner, Alison was not lying when she said it was a little slice of heaven on Earth. I have to say the best part about the house are the beds, they are so comfortable that you never want to leave.

Truly-'A Home Away From Home'.

  • 5 of 5

Throughout the years I've spent many long weekends at this charming old farmhouse and it never disappoints. This cozy home truly is a home away from home. The owner, Alison, is great. She's extremely helpful and always makes me feel that she is completely dedicated to my time at the house being pleasant and relaxing. Over the past several years this cozy home has had some updates and each one was a wonderful surprise. The porch addition, which includes an impressive outdoor fireplace, was a breathtaking surprise. This is now my favorite place to sit with a book or unwind in the evening with friends. Then came the beautiful pool, which really completes the back garden. Perfectly situated to allow for full sun all day and it's heated too! It's a lovely oasis complete with lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade making it an easy spot to waste the afternoon away. However, this year's update was the largest. The house had a huge renovation which allowed for the addition of a tremendous master suite. This space is larger then my NYC apartment! Complete with a beautiful en-suite, large walkin closet and soaring ceiling. Under this space is the enlarged kitchen. Which now boast a dining area that is home to a large country style table that seats 8 and is topped off with a fun farmhouse chandelier. Just behind this is a cozy conversation area/family room with a French-door that opens to the outdoor fireplace. The renovation adds to the existing charm of this old farmhouse and comes along with a completely new climate control system. In addition to this, the cottage out back has been repainted in this brilliant barn-red, which really adds to the farmhouse feel. Mr. Milo (my Victorian Bully) and I had a wonderful relaxing weekend. We cannot wait for our next visit.

I highly recommend this house!

Thank you Alison, for all the wonderful memories.

Fantastic Summer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first summer out on Long Island and could not have had a better house for the summer. The house is really comfortable and well stocked. The yard and pool are great, and the beach was ten minutes away. All that made for fantastic days. The grill and kitchen make it easy to have meals at the house. One of the best aspects of the house is the outdoor fireplace (perfect for S'Mores!)

Beyond the house, the owner, Alison, is fantastic as well. Super helpful and friendly. She was awesome to deal with and really made the whole experience perfect.

Couldn't recommend the house more.

Thanks Alison!
