Get to know Mattituck

Mattituck is a North Fork postcard come to life. The scenic Southold hamlet stretches across the peninsula, claiming enviable shorelines on the Great Peconic Bay and the Long Island Sound. However, there are waterfronts to be found all throughout Mattituck — coastal catnip for those looking for an alluring view to obsess over. James Creek and Deep Hole Creek flow into the southern bay, while the sprawling Mattituck Inlet winds into the northern sound. And don’t forget Marratook Pond, which doesn’t connect to a larger body but whose scenery is no less swoon-worthy. As you might imagine, activities like sailing and fishing are major must-dos in Mattituck, and people take advantage of multiple marinas along the various waterways. Homes encompass a range of styles and sizes, from unassuming cottages to imposing estates, many done up in a timeless East End tradition: the shingle-style facade.
