About the Association
Point O’Woods is a serene, multigenerational enclave nestled on Fire Island, a mere hour’s journey from both the bustling heart of Manhattan and the refined charm of Easthampton, yet it stands timeless, 30 years removed from the pace of both. Rooted in a steadfast dedication to the essence of family living, Point O’Woods exudes an unassuming tranquility, cradled by the natural splendor of its beachside locale. Established in the late 1800s, its enduring mission is to offer residents a haven for recreation, culture, spiritual reflection, and a profound connection with nature. Across generations, the community steadfastly upholds the virtues of simplicity and communal bonds, ensuring that Point O’Woods remains a cherished sanctuary within life’s grand tapestry.

Spanning 200 acres along Fire Island’s pristine shores, Point O’Woods comprises 133 summer residences, along with accommodations for staff and essential community facilities. Governed by the Point O’Woods Association—a cooperative corporation overseen by a dedicated Board of Directors—the community’s land is collectively owned, with homeowners securing renewable, long-term leases. Through this unique arrangement, the Association meticulously manages all property transactions, maintaining a steadfast commitment to fostering a familial atmosphere. Predominantly catering to families with children, rentals are carefully orchestrated, with home sales being a rarity.

In addition to its picturesque residences and breathtaking natural surroundings, Point O’Woods boasts a plethora of amenities designed to enrich the lives of its residents across all ages. Anchoring the community’s maritime offerings is the Yacht Club, featuring 40 slips to accommodate seafaring enthusiasts.

Catering to the spiritual needs of its diverse population, Point O’Woods is home to a non-denominational Church, providing a sacred space for reflection and worship.

Ensuring seamless connectivity with the mainland, Point O’Woods features a private dock facility with ample parking, complemented by its very own ferry service shuttling residents to and from the island retreat. Essential conveniences abound, including a well-stocked Grocery Store and a quaint Candy Store, satisfying cravings both practical and indulgent. The community hub, known affectionately as the “Casino,” serves as a versatile meeting hall, hosting a myriad of events ranging from movies and dances to art shows and community gatherings.

Further enhancing the community’s appeal are its essential services, including a dedicated Post Office and a Volunteer Fire Company, ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents. Outdoor enthusiasts can revel in recreational pursuits, with amenities such as a grass ball field, 11 meticulously maintained clay tennis courts, and pristine swimming beaches dotting both the oceanfront and the tranquil Great South Bay.

Point O’Woods takes pride in nurturing the next generation, offering a comprehensive Children’s Sports Program catering to ages 5 to 13, as well as competitive sailing and tennis teen programming, fostering athletic excellence and camaraderie among youth.
