Remember that "Saturday morning" feeling from childhood — the smell of pancakes floating up from the kitchen, sunlight and warm breezes through the bedroom window, and a long, stress-free day of fun ahead?

Find that feeling again every morning at the Cranky Clam, a laid-back vacation rental in Montauk. It is only a short stroll from Ditch Plains Beach, home to the Hamptons most famous surfing destination. Slip your feet into a pair of slippers, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, and begin a leisurely, laid-back day at your home away from home.

The Cranky Clam’s three bedrooms — one with a king-sized bed, one with a queen and a single twin bunk bed (great for those with young kids), and one with a sleeper sofa — comfortably sleep six guests. Plenty of social space means lots of opportunities to kick back with a favorite film in the living room, spend a little extra time on a new dish in the kitchen, and linger over dinner (or game night) in the dining room.

From the cozy, classic vibe in the two bedrooms to the nap-ready sofa in the living area, this house has all the trappings of a memorable, family-friendly getaway. And The Cranky Clam delivers in all the details as well. You’ll find a grill, air conditioning, internet access, linens, a washer/dryer, and outdoor shower for rinsing the sand away before dinner.

    My family enjoyed the perfect beach vacation while staying at this lovely home. The house was perfectly set up with outdoor space in the front and back yard, an outdoor shower, beach supplies and an easy walk to Ditch Plains. The house is clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Highly recommended!

    This was the perfect vacation for my family. We felt as if we were at home, not just a rental. We felt welcome by the owner right from the start, and they were always available and willing to help in any way they could. The home was beautiful, kitchen and bathrooms all updated and immaculate. Beds and linens were all just as beautiful and comfortable. The location was perfect, quiet and just a few minute walk to a great beach. Would highly recommend it.

    The house was beyond our expectation! It suited our family perfectly. It was impeccably clean and the owners left instructions where needed on how to operate things. We loved it and would highly recommend this vacation home.

    We couldn't be happier with our rental. The host was great and even asked if her son could leave books and toys for our sons. The house was well stocked and comfortable. We will absolutely rent again if available next year. We were sad to leave. Thanks for a memorable Montauk holiday!

    Great house and great location. Owners were amazing to work with. Have been going to Montauk for 30 years and this is a hidden gem in Ditch!!! The house was very clean and accommodated my family of 5 easily. The house had everything that we needed.

    Every single thing about our vacation rental was perfect. Communication with the owners was awesome, as they were always easy to get a hold of and so helpful and accommodating. Check-in was a breeze and upon walking in we realized that the beautiful pictures we saw online didn't even do the house justice. Everything about the house was perfect... a super clean, beachy house that's more spacious than we had anticipated. Our son loved staying here. The kind owners really made it so easy to bring youngsters along on this week long vacation. It truly was the perfect family getaway, thanks to this beautiful house and the awesome owners. The house is perfectly situated, just a walk from Ditch Plains beach, and had everything we needed for an awesome vacation. We will definitely be back and are already planning next year's visit!
