There is nothing else like this in Montauk, waterfront on Fort Pond. The compound has a three bedroom house, and two additional cottages that are two bedrooms each. Sleeps 20. Direct access to the lake from the backyard, and amazing views.
Very rare multi-unit property that is waterfront on Fort Pond. The property has a three bedroom house and two additional cottages that are two bedrooms each. All in, thats seven bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and three kitchens, plus six daybeds in the different living rooms, sleeps up to twenty guests. There are stairs in the backyard that go directly to the water, which is a 171 acre fresh water lake right in the heart of Montauk called Fort Pond. There is a fire pit, canoes, a sailboat and some bikes to enjoy.
The house and cottages where originally built in the 1930's by French-Canadian fisherman and then recently restored, we carefully crafted the restoration to preserve much of the original charm and vibe. There are vaulted ceilings, reclaimed lumber beams, wide plank floors, handcrafted furniture, and art/antique objects from our trips around the world. It's a beautiful place with chill bohemian vibe, and epic views. The main house has a huge open kitchen for all out friends and family meals.
The property is in a neighborhood, so its not suitable for huge/loud parties. It is great for surf camp, wedding groups, large families, and chill groups of friends. We are very short walks to Ruschmeyer's and Sole East, and a quick canoe ride to Surf Lodge across the lake. We are about a 12-15 minute walk to the town and ocean beach, and about 12-15 minute walk the other direction to the bay beach. Both are very short bike rides.
It's a $6 cab ride from the train station and Jitney. The property has four parking spaces, please do not bring more than four cars.
Here is the detail break down:
*They all have wifi, none have tv's.
Three bedrooms total, the master bedroom has two queen beds and its own full bath with direct access to the porch. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed. There is a second bathroom, a back porch, and large open kitchen, and three daybeds in the living room.
Two bedrooms each with a full size bed and a single bathroom. There is also two daybeds in the living space, a porch, and huge windows looking out directly on the lake.
This unit is a little more modern and has central heat and AC. Two bedrooms with queen beds, a single bath, and two more daybeds in the living space. There is a little porch with a grill, and its about 20 feet from the edge of the water.
Lastly, there is also a small caretakers unit on the property that we use personally and is not included when booking this property. We come and go back and forth between Montauk and Brooklyn, so we may or may not be there during your booking. Either way, we will always make sure you are well taken care of!

Interaction with guests
We are very low key with our guests and have never had a bad review over the years. We try to personally check every in and show them around the property and then essentially disappear.
We are always available for a text or call if you need anything and we know Montauk super well, so ask for a recommendation anytime!
We have tried to make this as awesome a place to stay and we hope you enjoy it.
