Adored by all sorts of celebrities (including, most recently, Robert Downey Jr.) the idyllic windmill cottages dotting the East End are some of the most coveted summer properties. Who needs a beach when you've got a spread Don Quixote would (literally) kill for?

Back in 1957, Marilyn Monroe and husband Arthur Miller rented one particularly quaint home in Amagansett, which featured a working windmill from the time it was built in the 1800s through the 1950s. Nowadays, the whimsical structure serves as a charming house straight out of a fairy tale. And for just $55,000, it could be yours - for a few months, at least.

The legendary windmill home (which also hosted the likes of Kurt Vonnegut) is available to rent this summer, with an average monthly price of $18,333. Situated on 5.45 private acres, the three-level hideaway at 64 Deep Lane boasts two bedrooms, a bath, and retro-rustic interiors in both the kitchen and living room. In case you were wondering - yes, you can go up to the windmill operating room, though it's currently being used as storage space.

Whether you're a Marilyn superfan, or just want a month or two of utter relaxation, this is the ultimate vacation oasis. Click through for an inside look!
