Peaceful summer house on Moriches Bay in East Moriches, directly across the bay from Westhampton Beach. Built in the 1940's around a windmill; it's a much enjoyed, waterfront family vacation home. Not a pristine Hamptons' experience, instead it's old-school summer time on a family compound.

This is a place of simple pleasures. Guests can play tennis, kayak around Harts Cove or paddle across Moriches Bay for an adventure to Swan Island. Seining for bait and fishing are always fun, or catching crabs in the crab pot. Swimming, taking long walks or jogging down quiet neighborhood streets,and reading on the front porch are other choices ( We have WiFi.) . Nearby fishing stations offer boat rentals and day fishing trips. We also have a Sunfish and a row boat.
The area has wonderful local vegetable stands and fresh fish markets. Drive 15 minutes east and you are in Westhampton Beach with all that it has to offer tourists: ocean beaches, unique shops and terrific bars/ restaurants.

Interaction with guests
We usually meet our guests soon after they arrive to introduce them to the house and surroundings.
This is an elderly, treasured home,with access to tennis and waterfront. We expect guests to be respectful. Because of the waterfront, elderly building and steep stairs, we discourage young children. Children must be closely monitored at all times.
We have large trash cans outside for accumulated garbage.
We do not expect guests to use the dock.
