This just in: hotelier Sean MacPherson (The Bowery, The Maritime, The Jane Hotels) has officially purchased a set of cottages adjacent to his existing Crow's Nest Hotel and Restaurant on Lake Montauk. Feast your eyes on "The David Pharaoh Cottages." Named after the revered Montakett Indian leader, David Pharaoh (regarded as the last living Indian king of Montauk), the name pays homage to Montauk's rich Indian history. These adorable little homes (which don't seem to need much work as-is) will be getting the full MacPherson treatment. What does this mean for Crow's Nest guests? The chance to spend a summer holiday in one's own private beach bungalow complete with kitchenettes, a private lakefront patio, a private beach, and all of Crow's Nest's amenities. Apparently demand for the coveted two bedroom house on the existing Crow's Nest property was so strong that MacPherson quickly expanded to the adjacent cottages. A good move - with very few rental options in Montauk for families, expect these to get snatched up fast! Below, the before photos of the cottages:

The official listing from hreo.com:
"This unique property is situated on Lake Montauk, a true harbor that opens directly to Block Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Gorgeous unobstructed views with 105 feet of waterfront. The 2.2+/- acre property also includes 0.50+/- acre of lake-bottom land, complete with mooring rights. Comprised of five cottages, with kitchens, and a two bedroom heated house, the property is currently used as a boutique-style motel. Perfect as a family compound, business retreat, or converted to a private residential property, this is a truly exceptional opportunity for waterfront living."
