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.

The space

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.

Cedar Cottage:
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!

**Rates include a 3% Suffolk County Occupancy Tax

Great location- quiet but walkable to town and beach, right on the pond. This did mean there were insects but this is totally logical and unavoidable. Cosy, sufficient space for all guests (we had a party of 10 with us). Everyone felt they could escape to their room when they wanted and then we could all join up for meals. Also each house was styled with a hip, eclectic vibe which was soothing after a crazy week in the city. Amenities and utensils were pleasant enough to cook several meals together. Bikes allowed us to get around at a slower pace though some bikes looked as though they were mistreated from previous guests. Wifi was great (if that's your thing) and plenty of indoor/outdoor was relaxing.

This place was perfect! It was a great location, there was plenty of room and the fire pit was right on the lake was fantastic. I would absolutely stay here again. One thing to keep in mind is because it's by the lake, there are some bugs but it's not the end of the world if you can manage!

The compound is so awesome for a big group! My husband and I had our closest friends and family celebrate our wedding weekend here and the grounds were perfect for this and conveniently located to the center of town.

Welcome to Fort Pond House. We love to travel, collect treasure, eat street food and meet people who make things. Our love for DIY and repurposing old things is clearly visible through out our place. After spending many summers in Montauk we came to love it here and fell in lo…
