Slightly larger than neighboring areas on the North Fork, Mattituck has a downtown flush with locally owned shops, making it a delightful place to stroll away an afternoon.
A bustling beach town year-round
From boating to wining and dining, it’s all at your fingertips in Mattituck. Shoppers will find thoughtfully curated, locally owned restaurants, bakeries and boutiques on Love Lane; boaters have direct access to Long Island Sound via the Mattituck Inlet; and wine lovers will relish the area’s vineyards. Visitors who come early in the season will be rewarded, too. The Strawberry Festival in June is a lively, four-day affair full of local produce, amusements and artisan booths.
From the sound to bay, waterfront views abound
Mattituck is best known for its idyllic waterfront properties. Radiating out from the Mattituck Inlet — a two-mile protected harbor leading to the sound — are some of the area’s finest and most distinctive homes. To the south, below Main Road, many neighborhood streets curve and bend to fit the bays and creeks that empty into Peconic Bay. Cape Cod and vintage homes with 2 to 4 bedrooms are most common here, with some boasting private community beaches.
