Description of the Smithtown vacation home rental
Beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath Long Island home nestled in the historic village of Saint James on the North Shore. This space is the main floor of a ranch house located a convenient 60 miles away from New York City but a world away in vacation experience. It is easily accessible by car or train.

The house is on 3 acres of land, secluded from the local road by a long driveway, and surrounded by woods. There is a spacious living room, a separate dining room with seating for 8, and a large, warm eat-in kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a separate, enclosed porch and veranda. Two other bedrooms have full size beds and a fourth bedroom has a pair of twin beds perfect for kids. The home has lots of light and free WiFi. Other amenities include hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, an outdoor grill, spacious lawns for kids to play or just to soak up the sun.

The house is located about 5 minutes from local beaches which border the Long Island Sound. The surf is quiet, the sand is white, and the beaches stretch for miles. Lots of watersports, including sailing, windsurfing, fishing and canoeing, are available nearby. Nearby horse farms offer horseback riding and nearly every road in the village is great for bicycling.

One of the pleasures of the Long Island experience is the local dining and shops. Multiple excellent and innovative restaurants are within a 10 minute drive and the village of Saint James, a mile away, provides easy access to everything you might need to make your stay more enjoyable, including supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, post office and ice cream shop.

This quiet home is great for a weekend or midweek getaway from the craziness of urban life. It is also perfect for a summer retreat of sand, sea, & sun. The space available for a stay is the main floor of the ranch home. There is a separate apartment in the lower level which has it's own entrance and is not for rent. There is a shared washer & dryer on the lower level.
Area Information
This house has been used as a summer home and weekend getaway in my family for years. We live in New York City (about 75 minutes away) and spend lots of weekends at the house with the kids, going to the beach or browsing the yard sales. It is an antidote to high stress living, close to both New York & the Hamptons. The huge yard is very secluded and the experience is peaceful.

Spacious, secluded home that provides a relaxing weekend and summertime getaway. Easily accomodates 8 people in 4 bedrooms with 2 baths. Just a 75 minute drive or train ride from NY City. Near gentle beaches off the Long Island Sound. Short drive to the Hamptons, Montauk Point for fishing, or Jones Beach for concerts. Excellent shopping and restaurants near by.

Gentle, rolling hills and quiet, meandering roads
Jones Beach, Fire Island, Robert Moses & Heckscher State Parks
Long Island Sound Beaches

Great bicycling, strawberry picking, & antiquing
Lots of outlet stores and malls

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We stayed at Estela's wonderful Smithtown house from November 30 - December 7 and had a fantastic time. Our east coast relatives on Long Island hadn't seen us for a LONG time so after our granddaughter was born we began making plans to come out to New York for a nice, week long visit. The house was perfect for our needs and in a great location which is both isolated and beautiful as well as being close enough to stores to be convenient. We were able to host a family style dinner on our first Sunday there and the great dining room with huge dining room table was perfect for us. Everyone was seated comfortably and we even had a "kid's table" in the kitchen which has it's own table for six! Truly a dream come true. There was a cold snap while we were there and the heaters worked perfectly. Sadly we didn't get a chance to use the fireplace in the livingroom, I guess we were out visiting too much! We are already planning our next vacation to New York for next year and hope that Estela's place is available for that time. This time we only came out with four adults and one 17 month old, next time we plan to bring a few more family members and believe me, this place can easily handle the people. The washer and dryer in the basement was an added bonus for us so that we did not have to bring any dirty clothes back home...we were also able to pack less stuff for our trip which helped a lot with how much airlines charge for luggage these days!! Thank you Estela for all your kindness and your many prompt returns of our emails. You are a fantastic host and we can't wait to visit again!

We had a wonderful visit and enjoyed the cottage very much. Everything was in good working order and if possible we would rent this home again

We had 8 adults stay in this house over Memorial Day weekend for a friend's wedding. We got in late on a Friday night and were surprised at how great the place was - it was huge! The pictures don't do it justice. The dining room has a nice long table which we spent a lot of the weekend catching up and playing games. During the day we played games on the lawn and hung out on the porch. My only complaint was that there should have been a gas grill available for barbeque-ing. But otherwise it was fantastic! We may rent this house again next year because we had such a lovely time!
