I spent a weekend here in October and it was very pleasant. It was very picturesque in the fall, with the leaves changing for the Fall, yet I am sure it would have been as beautiful in the summer. I found the house to be very spacious and homely - it did not appear as a typical summer/fall rental, just very comfortable and relaxing. The owner informed me of canoeing to a private beach which was very nice. I think this is a great place for a retreat, yet conveniently located near the shopping centers and main streets. I would higly recmmend this vacation spot.
Our family of 14 spent a week at Ken’s place and I can truly say its perfect for a family vacation.The house is situated in a quiet area and offers privacy. The amenities in the house are many and include a pool, hot tub, two exterior grills and a large deck with seating arrangement for a large family. The location in Southampton is near both pond and ocean beaches (check out Cooper’s Beach, one of the best in the US). The general area of the Hamptons offer many activities both for adults and children. I would recommend Ken’s home. Sincerely, Dr. Martin Becker, Biotech Consultant, Boston Mass.
Our family and friends had a marvelous time here on my birthday weekend after having stayed at one of Ken's other houses in March. Ken arranged a tour of some spectacular hidden wonders close by (lakes, bay and a nature hike) and then we all went wine tasting at 3 local vineyards. A rare treat, we were provided kayaks on the beautiful lake just steps from the house. We found the house perfectly located in serenity yet close to the beautiful Cooper's Beach and village of Southampton where we explored several beaches and enjoyed a night out. Being close to the beaches and town is convenient while the beautiful walk from the house to the lake and bay beach was great exercise and so refreshing. The house itself is lovely, kitchen stocked for cooking and living room with house games for all of us (it rained one day, we had a real bonding experience!). Plenty of bedrooms and space, and nicely decorated with a lot of living and outdoor deck space for a lot of guests. This house is definitely designed for large families, those who enjoy nature with peaceful surroundings (lots of birds) and anyone who wants a rejuvenating getaway in Southampton. I highly recommend it.
We had a great stay at Ken’s house. Beautiful home with all the amenities a large party would ever need. Idyllic surroundings, comfortable and high quality interiors, and deeply relaxing pool/hot tub. Everything was what we expected and more; it's perfect! I could not speak higher of Ken. He was extremely accommodating to all of our needs and even worked overtime to let us in the house before our scheduled check in time. We were celebrating a special reunion and Ken went above and beyond to make sure our every need was taken care of. He also gave us a ton of recommendations for things to do in the area. Ken felt like a lifelong friend. From taking pictures of the group to driving us to pick-up breakfast when we didn’t have a car – Ken did it all! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have an amazing time in South Hampton!
Our stay at Ken’s house was one of the most pleasant and memorable weekends my friends and I had in a long time! The house was perfectly nestled on a quiet road, and it was so nice to escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC. If you are looking for tranquility and being surrounded by nature, this spot is your best bet in Southampton! We relaxed in Ken’s wonderful hot tub and pool, and spent so much time outside soaking in some sun on his beautiful grounds and large deck. The house itself was very spacious yet cozy, and could have everything you could ever ask for in a weekend getaway home. Great amenities, great accommodations. Ken was such a gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed – from directions to cab companies to restaurant recommendations – Ken was always on call to make sure we felt right at home!
A lovely, peaceful getaway location, on a large lake with a separate beach. Our family was able to enjoy two world class beaches, three local vineyards and world-class National Links Golf Course in a short week stay all in under 5 minutes from the house. Highly recommended for your Hamptons vacation.
Everything was to our liking and we would definitely recommend this property. The description was accurate and we were more than happy
Wonderful, clean, comfortable and the place terrific. Would give it 5 stars.
Ken’s beautiful, quaint, and spacious home tucked in the woods near the lake provides a secluded getaway that is proximate to downtown Southampton. From the time our group of friends and family arrived, he immediately greeted us in the parking lot and offered to help carry the bags in. The house was very well kept with plenty of space for my entire group to stay. The pool is large, hot tub is roomy, and the outdoor deck is spacious. The beach is easy to get to and downtown Southampton is just a few minutes drive. We will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful setting. Relaxing experience. Great for a large group!
We had a fantastic stay while in Southampton. The house itself was very comfortable and our entire group felt at home. The privacy was great, It felt very secluded while being in such close proximity to everything we could have needed. Would definitely go back and stay again in a heartbeat!
Great place for our quick two day vacation from New York. A few friends and I enjoyed a spacious place attended to perfectly by Ken who greeted us personally upon arrival and helped us get settled. Woodsy/private, yet lots of sun at the pool and decks. Beautifully peaceful, canoeing on the lake is an unexpected pleasure with only two days to spare out of New York City. The location is great, just 5 minutes to town, Duckwalk Vineyard and Cooper's beach. Plan to be back in September!
Had a great time at this Southampton resort home for a quick getaway with some work colleague's. Great place with beautiful lake and woodlands surroundings. House is clean, private, and very close to the village of Southampton. Owner is very responsive. Nice kitchen with new cookware,many comfortable beds, two huge living rooms and nice stone, decorative fireplace. Expansive outdoor decks. Great location for the wineries. I would recommend this house to families, reunions, work retreats like ours and anyone coming out from the city. Outdoor hot tub, nice touch in winter! Will be back here for the Summer when the pool is open. Great Hamptons Rental. Thank you.
