Overview

Photos and Description of the Laurel vacation apartment rental

Massive Loft: 3 bdrms+ 2 sleeping lofts, 2 baths, Farm Views, high end kitchen

Description:

Enjoy wine tasting and award-winning vineyard touring at the tastings held each weekend. Magnificent 3bdrm, 2bath, 4500sq.ft loft; enormous greatroom, gourmet kitchen. Breathtaking farm views, landscaped backyard w/dining table for 12, modern appliances/entertainment system, centrally located amidst vineyards/farms, 3-car parking (more if needed), private entrance, contemporary high end décor.

Unique modern, open loft space perfect for cooking, entertainment, and just relaxing indoors or out. Located smack in the middle of Long Island wine country, nestled between three of the finest vineyards on the North Fork.

Full access to all apartment amenities, including fully appointed kitchen, barbeque, fully stocked with wine glasses, china, etc. Easy and quick access to both Sound and Bay beaches. Near Love Lane, which boasts true gourmet shops, and the Mattituck Shopping Center with supermarket, drug, and snack shops, as well as a Cineplex with 8 screens. All appliances and electronics are accessible, including cable TV, Wi-Fi, hi-end music system, kitchen appliances and accessories, washer/dryer, etc. A housekeeper and groundskeeper are available for special requests, as are the owners, who live nearby. We will make every effort to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We love the North Fork and want you to as well.

Happy to advise guests on what to see and do on the North Fork. We will greet guests on arrival and familiarize them with the area and the apartment.

Mattituck is right in the center of the North Fork, equidistant from the Tanger's Mall on the one hand, and charming Greenport on the other. It is in the heart of the North Fork Wine Country (Bedell Cellars, Corey Creek, Lenz, etc.) as well as the finest farms and produce vendors (Sang Lee, Satur Farms, etc.)

There are magnificent beaches on both the Sound and Bay sides that are peaceful and never crowded. Marinas abound where you can park or rent boats and watercraft, or you can partake in the 'agritainment' on nearby farms for Pumpkin Picking, Hayrides, Night Mazes, and more.

The North Fork has much stricter zoning than the South Fork, as well as much more protected land, so you will experience true farmland and vineyards, vs. developments and overpopulation. It is literally the best of both worlds, the beach and the country.

There isn't too much local transport, although the Jitney and trains that service the North Fork make it easy to get here. There are several car rental offices. Bicyclists have made the North Fork a prime touring location, and many bicycle and motorcycle groups can be seen regularly enjoying the smooth roads and enthralling landscape.

Each of the towns on the North Fork has its own charm, and all are within a stone's throw. Greenport, a fishing village, retains its charm with great seafood restaurants, massive docks with tall ships, yachts and private vessels, plus seaside attractions (ex., Preston's, Claudio's, Scrimshaw, etc.) and many fascinating shops.

Orient Point has its own magic, secluded charm; and Southold, Aquebogue and Laurel each offer special places to visit.

The Greenport Ferry is a ten minute ride to Shelter Island, and the Orient Ferry takes one hour to reach Connecticut. But chances are, once you're on the North Fork, you won't want to leave.

Review Verbatims:

We had a great time at Michael's beautiful loft apartment. The entrance overlooks a pumpkin patch, the location was great for all the vineyards and local farms, and the great room was huge, bright and airy. All of the furnishings are very nice and the kitchen is very well stocked for anything that you would need to cook. Michael and his wife were so friendly and responsive to any questions that we had. I hope that we will be going back soon.

'Pictures don't do this loft any justice - it's even more beautiful in person. We walked in and were in awe of the space. Normally we are the types to go out to eat, but the huge, fully stocked kitchen made us want to stay in and cook. It was a great place for a girls' weekend. The hosts were wonderful and gave great recommendations on places to eat, shop, and explore. We will definitely be back!'

'It was a great experience. Beautiful home, great location, and welcoming hosts. We will be back!'

'Dear Gail and Michael I just wanted to thank you once again for being such a wonderful host.

From the space to the decorations and every detail, it was really amazing. I was blown away.

We had a memorable holiday and my daughter wouldn't stop saying how much she liked it there.'

Overall Guest Satisfaction:

For Accuracy of Description, Cleanliness, Check In, Communications, Locations and Value Five (5) Stars across the board.

Description About Me:

New York City Native who has totally embraced the country/beach flavor of the North Fork without losing my urban sensibility for quality and design ingrained while growing up in Manhattan.

Our North Fork Loft integrates a huge, city loft sensibility with a country kitchen flavor to create a unique, warm living space.

Home Theater, Designer Furniture, Gourmet Kitchen, Modern Art and Broadband Access meets Country Widebeam Floors, Waterworks-style Bathrooms, and super comforter armchairs and sofas for a country at-home feeling.

So far, our guests have been thrilled to have found this attention to detail and style in the country.

We hope you will be, too.

We will be happy to guide guests and share our insights on what to see and do on the North Fork, as we have lived here (and still in Manhattan) since 1984. We will greet guests on arrival and familiarize you with the area and the apartment.

Mattituck is right at the epicenter of the North Fork, equidistant from the Tanger's Mall on the one hand, and charming seaport town of Greenport on the other. It is also right in the heart of the North Fork Wine Country (Bedell Cellars, Corey Creek, Lenz, etc.) as well as the finest farms and produce vendors (Sang Lee, Satur Farms, etc.)

There are magnificent beaches on both the Sound and Bay sides that are peaceful and never crowded. The Sound offers a more active seascape; the Bay, a quieter body of water.

Marinas abound where you can park or rent boats and watercraft, go fishing on party boats or your rental, or you can partake in the 'agritainment' and Harvest activities on nearby farms.

There are always fun activities on the weekends, including Flea Markets, Antique Shows, Arts & Crafts Fairs, Car Shows galore, even tractor pulls. This is still true country living, despite being so close to the city. The North Fork is literally the best of both worlds.

The Hampton Jitney and LIRR trains that service the North Fork making it easy to get here. There are several car rental offices. Bicyclists have made the North Fork a prime touring location, and many bicycle and motorcycle groups can be seen regularly enjoying the smooth roads and enthralling landscape.

Each of the towns on the North Fork has its own charm, and all are within a stone's throw. Greenport, a fishing village, retains its charm with great seafood restaurants, massive docks with tall ships, yachts and private vessels, plus seaside attractions (ex., Preston's, Claudio's, Scrimshaw Restaurant, etc.) and many fascinating shops.

Orient Point has its own brand of magic, secluded charm, and Southold, Aquebogue and Laurel each boast special places to visit.

The Greenport Ferry offers a ten minute ride to Shelter Island, and the Orient Ferry takes one hour to reach Connecticut. On the other side of Shelter Island, a 2nd ferry takes you over to Sag Harbor/Hamptons. But chances are, once you're on the North Fork, you won't want to leave.

Our North Fork Loft integrates a huge, city loft sensibility with a country kitchen flavor to create a unique, warm living space. Home Theater, Designer Furniture, Gourmet Kitchen, Modern Art and Broadband Access meets Country Widebeam Floors, Waterworks-style Bathrooms, and super comforter armchairs and sofas for a country at-home feeling.

Notes:
Owned by two native New Yorkers (born and raised in Manhattan), this Loft represents our concept of what country/beach living should be. All the style and comforts of an apartment, while preserving the full feeling of being in the country. The location was chosen as a perfect compromise between the country (my love) and the beach (my wife's). It offers the very best of both: amazing water activities combined with the lush, bountiful produce of the farm. We happily share our 30 years of North Fork living with out guests, which range from recommending restaurants that will thrill a NYC reviewer to the farms and fisheries where the NY restaurants source their ingredients. Activities: boating, flying, kayaking, biking, hiking, swimming, jogging, yard sale hunting, antiquing, shopping, cooking, wine tasting, wildlife observing... and more. And, if you can't resist a bargain, the area's largest outlet mall is just minutes away. NOTE: The town requires a 14-day minimum for short rentals.
