This cottage on the lake is so beautiful. The pictures do not do justice to the actual place. The cottage has beautiful lake views, is well kept, clean, up to date. It has everything you could need for a hampton getaway from the perfect location to the cottage supplying a grill to beach umbrella, bug spray and more importantly - the kayaks to enjoy the stunning sunsets on the lake! It's obvious that much thought and consideration went in to the place and things supplied to meet the needs of the guests. We absolutely loved our stay at Richard's place!

The home was so beautiful. Quiet neighborhood; the backyard was a lake. Windows-galore in that home, which let so much sun and positive energy into the home; it felt great. Usable kitchen, with plenty of counter space. His pictures are too humble to show the 4 person seatable dining table off the island in the kitchen. Comfy couches, comfy bed; my pup loved it. Communication was top-notch. I'm already scanning my calendar for the next time I can book his home. Thank you so much, Richard!

Cottage was cute as described. Host provided new Kayaks for the lake. Host was available and attentive. 20 min ride to Main Street/Hampton bays. Quiet area. Would recommend.

What a magical place!! Richard was so kind, friendly, polite and responsive and helpful during the before, during, and after the trip! The pictures do not even do this place justice, you have to see and experience it for yourself. The trails and Lake were just as magical and enjoyable in the winter. The home is tasteful and clean and very comfortable. Perfect home to stay in cook a meal, host a dinner and drink wine, sip on tea. You won't want to leave. Cannot wait to be back!

The setting is just incredible, the photos don't do it justice. The cabin itself is beautifully furnished, very comfortable with everything we needed and also very clean. Richard was easy to deal with and responded very quickly to our queries. We can't wait to go back!

I have travelled to over 70 countries and found my paradise here; Big Fresh Pond is my favorite place to swim (May-Oct.) I love nature, peace, and being in and on the water.
