Peconic riverfront house

We spent the Columbus weekend in the North Fork known for vineyards. We got this house (near the S Jamesport beach) from Homeaway. Homes/mansion swap (on WSJ here) has becoming increasingly popular, probably edging out time share.

This private home on the Peconic Bay

  •  The good: killer view; nice décor, comfortable outdoor setting, flowers; great sunrise
  • The bad: needs a retractable awning; horrible 2nd floor bedrooms (I don’t think these rooms are up to safety code) with uncomfortable beds
  • confusion: there are contradicting requirements. For example, on beddings, in the contract we signed, we need to Place all sheets and towels by washer and dryer but in the binder the family provide, stated we do NOT have to. The beds are uncomfortable.  Initially dogs were allowed then the owner changed mind. Two families are dog owners and they’re crazy about theirs.

This is the best bathroom on the ground floor, next to the best bedroom – a suite. But the bathroom is outside of the bedroom, next to washer and dryer.
