“My dog will come back again and again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

The rooms were very clean and the staff could not have been any nicer! It was great to share a week in Montauk with our dog, running on the beach was priceless. The walk to the beach is a couple of blocks but it's worth it, it's very private. The manager "Wen" has a beach pass that you may borrow to drive to other nearby beaches. We stayed in the East/West cottage, it was very nice, we will definitely ask for the same unit next year!

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

My husband and I spent last weekend in Montauk and were so pleased to have found Hither House. Big deal, so you have to walk 10 minutes to the beach. It’s exercise. (Unfortunately though we could not get down to the beach with our dog. The steps leading down were in need of repair.)

We stayed in the East Cottage. Comfortable, clean. Pleasant gardens. The staff was friendly and efficient. What is not to like if you know you just want a place where you can enjoy a weekend away and bring your dog.

We have just returned from a short break to Montauk and Hither House was a perfect getaway for our family of four plus dog! Well located only a short walk from the beach and well furnished with everything you need. Lovely gardens and bbq and sun loungers for each cottage. We stayed in the East West cottage which was a good size, though if the 4 of us went for a week we would stay at the larger Hither cottage (our children are very young).
We'd definitely go again and have already recommended to friends!

Not on the beach! You have to walk and lug all your belongings. There are so many places to stay in beautiful Montauk. There is NO reason to stay here and pay the exorbitant rates. The cabins are small and TOTALLY outdated. And, to top it off the front desk people are not all there. Take my word for it...stay elsewhere!

Dear Guest,
When first making a reservation our staff should have made you aware that we are not located right on the water. It is correct that we are a short 5 minute walk to the beach. Heading to the beach from the property is down hill however, there is a large set of stairs that need to be climbed to get down to the sand. We apologize that this was not conveyed clearly to you and that there was a misunderstanding. However, we do provide all of our customers with beach permits that allow you to park your car at various beaches all over Montauk if the walk to the private beach was not something you found appealing. We can assure you that our staff is on call and on property almost 24/7 and it is very concerning to hear that you found the staff to not be present for most of your stay. You can be sure that the staff has been made aware of this issue and it has been completely addressed. Hither House has made some very exciting updates to all of the cottages and the property, so we hope that you may consider staying with us again. Again, we apologize for your poor experience and if you do choose to book with us we will ensure that your experience is much more enjoyable!

Thank You,
Hither House Cottages

It's like having your own vaction house at Montauk,with none of the cares.Short walk to their nice private quiet beach.They also include beach parking permits for the other town beaches around Montauk.The landscaping is beautiful.In the summer on weekends they provide a continental breakfast in the gazebo.They are pet friendly,so you don't have to leave any of the family home.We enjoyed having a kitchen for our homecooked meals.Our front deck was frunish & had a BBQ(use that too),the view was excellent.We had a smaller deck off the bedroom too, with a great view.Our livingroom was comforble with a nice big flatescreen tv(cable tv&HBO) & dvd,cd player.They also have free Wi-Fi.Oh lets not forget the woodburning stove & A/C,also fully heated for the winter.They are open year round.The beds are very comforble.The shower had all the hot water with great pressure. The owner / property manager, Wen Gamba couldn't be more friendly,all the staff was wonderful & helpful.For being dog friendly the cottages are kept imaculate!We will be returning in the fall.It will be the third time for me & may the count go on.We stayed in the south cottage,there are 8 different accommodations.We picked a great extended week end from August 24 to the 27,the weather was perfect.Tom & I (Michele) love it here.If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Room Tip: Talk to the owner Wen & she will set you up with the accommodations that will fit your needs.I a...

Overall: Great location, clean and very affordable during off-season! Would stay here again.

Location: The cottages were a 5-8 minute walk from the beach. Depending on what cottage you're in you also have a partial sea view. We were in the Hither cottage and had a distant view from the kitchen area. Cottages are also about a 5 minute drive to town where most of the nice restaurants and grocery stores are.

Accommodations: We stayed in the largest cottage, Hither Cottage, which was definitely MUCH bigger than we needed for 2 people + a puppy, but it was the only one left. Hither cottage was expensive, and I hope next time we return we can pick from the smaller ones. Having said that, the space was just as shown in the photos. The rooms were very clean and cozy and even though we didn't use the fireplace, the heaters worked really well and it was very warm at night. We didn't use the kitchen amenities much, but if you're staying awhile w/ friends or family, the cottage is very well supplied w/ everything from grilling utensils to an espresso machine. Beds in the cottage were very comfortable - in the fall/winter, I think they should supply warmer blankets, though. TV & free wifi worked very well. Bathroom was a good size - the water pressure was good... the only minus was that if you're tall, you'll definitely have to crouch in the shower (at least in the one in the Hither cottage).

Other: Service was fine.. we didn't have much need for assistance, other than at check-in. They offer pet sitting, which we didn't use, but it's nice to have the option. Restaurants we enjoyed: Harvest on Fort Pond, Surfside Inn. Must try The Lobster Roll on you're way in or out on Montauk.

This was our fourth or fifth time going to Hither House. If you love the beach and your four legged family member, this is the place for you. It's a short walk to the beach. The facilities,(while not new) are very clean and well maintained...kind of "shabby-chic". The kitchens have coffee makers,(some have blenders)and stove tops. Wen the owner is very friendly and accomodating. We love Montauk and Hither House is a little gem.
