Amazing cottage
Amazing sunsets from the back porch of property. Hosts were great. Felt at home so peaceful and relaxing everything was perfect.

Chris and Lynda B.

June 2023

Absolutely beautiful & wonderfully pleasant!
Stephen’s cottage is beautiful and serene. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the ocean was unmatched. The cottage is a short bike or drive to both Greenport and Southhold, which was awesome for all of our activities. Stephen was very responsive and quick to respond to any of our inquiries. Cannot recommend this spot enough!

Paradise on the North Fork
“Wow!” is the theme of this review! Not only is the location incredible – situated right on the bluff, with steps down to the beach, a big grassy lawn and incredible sunsets – but the host was so friendly and helpful. The cottage is in fantastic condition – comfy bed and couch, fully stocked kitchen, great water pressure and a big tub – and it was hard to tear myself away most days even though there are so many lovely things to do in the North Fork. This is really a find and I’m so grateful to Stephen and his family for sharing this little slice of paradise. I can’t wait to go back!

July 2019

Just want to convey my appreciation of my recent stay at The Cottage at Sunset Bluff. The cottage is in an ideal location, convenient to local beaches (although the private beach at the bottom of the stairs is nice too), attractions and restaurants. The views are awesome. Everything you need is provided, including beach accessories (chairs, towels, umbrella) and kitchen essentials. You just need to bring/buy food (several supermarkets just a short drive away). Love the outside deck overlooking the sound. Just perfect. I look forward to enjoying it again and recommending it to others.

Linda A.

June 2019

From the cozy set up, to the thoughtful amenities, the cottage is the perfect weekend getaway.

The town has much to offer year round, yet returning to the cottage was the best part of each day.

Thank You for everything.

What a way to ring in the New Year!

We had such a wonderful time here at the cottage and in Greenport. So much to see and do,

even in the off-season. We look forward to coming back.

Thank you for a wonderful overnight in the “cottage on the bluff”. We will both have a shared & cherished memory here, it was just what we needed – a relaxing break from hectic lives, together with only the sound of the wind & the waves !

Thank you so much for another amazing weekend getaway at the cottage! What a beautiful time of year to visit. We enjoyed an amazing sunset from the porch while sharing a bottle of wine. This place continues to represent peace & tranquility to us. We look forward to coming back in the summer to enjoy the beach. All the best !

We came here for one perfect weekend – the first vacation we took as a couple since having our first child five years ago.We only live about an hour away, but it feels like we are a world away from our everyday lives. The cottage and its location are pure perfection, and your attention to detail is fantastic.

One only – and very selfish – request:

Please don’t tell many more people about it! We can’t wait to come back ~

A touch of Heaven ! What a perfect week. How wonderful to wake up to this amazing view every morning.

Just as amazing to lie in bed at night listening to the waves rolling in and out.

A week of golf, wine tasting and relaxing each afternoon on the beach. We can’t wait to come back again.

We will be talking about this place forever.

At cottage all week except for short trips to get fish & wine.

Watched clouds, laid in grass, sat in chairs, long beach walk, long sunsets, floating in the ocean.

Thank You Stephen & Donna

We have never been to Long Island before and this was absolutely the best location to explore the region and return to the comforts of home and enjoy amazing sunsets.

Thank you for all the tips, which allowed us to get the most out of our time here. Everyday began with long walks on the beach and ended with a glass of wine and a sunset here or about. Thank you so much for sharing your cottage.

Your cottage is a little slice of paradise ! We relaxed as we took in the incredible views of the sound.

This is the PERFECT escape from stress and chaos. We hope to make this a yearly retreat!

Just about ending a glorious week in the beautiful Cottage at Sunset Bluff.

So much thought and care has gone into this oasis by the sea.

It’s been an extraordinary time of relaxation, rest and replenishment.

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage.

The view is breathtaking and we absolutely loved the bathtub !

Our five month old son discovered that he loves the beach and falling asleep tom the waves crashing.

This was the perfect getaway for our little family.

Thank you for allowing us to spend our honeymoon at such a beautiful location. The view was absolutely amazing !

The cottage itself is so modern and very nicely kept. To be able to say, we had a private beach for three days to ourselves is great. We would love to make this a tradition celebrating our anniversary here for years to come !

Thank you for your hospitality!

All the best,

Perfect cottage, perfect setting, perfect weekend!

Thank you for being such wonderful “hosts”.

We had such a relaxing time here, while also exploring all that the North Fork has to offer.

We’ll definitely be back!

September 2012

We spent our first 2 nights as husband and wife at your amazing cottage.

We couldn’t get enough of the sound of the waves hitting the shore and

spent both evenings with a glass of wine watching the sunsets.

Thank You So Much. We will definitely be back….Anniversary!!

Wish we had “Another day in Paradise”! Maybe next year!

Seriously this is one of the very best places we have ever stayed.

We loved waking up to the views and watching the sunsets in the evening.

The real bonus – our hosts Donna and Stephen – friendly, warm, delightful.

Sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye. We visited Shelter Island and the South Fork, but the Cottage at Sunset Bluff was by far, our favorite place. We can’t wait to come back.

Dear Steve and Donna,

Thank you so much for sharing with me your fabulous place. The cottage is amazing, the decor beautiful without being busy and the views are priceless. It exceeded my expectation. I sincerely hope, I will be able to come back. Your warmth, outgoing & loving personalities make this place “heaven on earth”.



September 2011

Dear Steve and Donna,

Congratulations on your little piece of heaven. You have done such a beautiful job and made the most of a breathtaking spot.

You could not have found two more grateful guests. We have two kids (one of whom is a toddler), two grueling jobs, and have not had a vacation in years (at least not without the kids). Just one night here for our anniversary has done so much to relax us. We made the most of the back deck with a glass of cognac under the full moon.

I’m a big advocate for making the most of Long Island and having stay-cations, and after this weekend, my husband is too!

We will be back if you’ll have us! We wish you all the best with the place!

Ryan & Elaine

P.S. – Added some sea glass to your collection!

Dear Donna and Steve,

The cottage is absolutely beautiful! We couldn’t wait to get here and it was even better than we expected. The meticulous work you put into the cottage is truly appreciated.

We enjoyed the tranquility and the beautiful sun set this evening along with a nice walk on the beach. The view from inside and while sitting on the back porch is exquisite!

It’s a nice feeling to know I had a small part in being able to help out.

The cottage is very warm and relaxing just what we needed as a little get away.

I know all of your future guests will feel the same warm welcome we received from both of you and will enjoy this beautiful cottage!

Well, the weekend is coming to a close. It went by too fast, but we look forward to our next visit. We wish you all the best in renting the cottage and hope it is appreciated and enjoyed!

Thank You!
Denise & Stephen
