A small town with big charm

East Marion

Those who make it as far out as East Marion will be rewarded. Here, the lavender fields are wider, the sky is bigger and the sound is vaster. What East Marion lacks in activity, it makes up for with volumes of peace and quiet.

What to Expect

Where historic charm and the open sky meet

East Marion is one of the North Fork’s most far-flung communities, sitting just west of Orient. Its most distinctive feature is its water-lined causeway, which bisects Gardiner’s Bay to the south and Long Island Sound to the north. Approaching town from Route 25, visitors will find quintessential North Fork views of the sound, unspoiled farmland and rock-strewn beaches.

19th-century style plus stunning water vistas

East Marion is best known for its historic 19th century homes, but also offers many newer options. With just over 300 residences, it is a small housing market, but also a more affordable one. The residents are a mix of working-class folks, second-home buyers, and year-rounders who love the bygone feel and don’t mind having to drive just a bit more for shopping, dining and entertainment choices.
