The double parlor provides a huge space to kick back and spend some quality time with family and friends. Read, play music, watch movies, or play the piano! The front parlor has a double sofabed, and a twin loveseat sofa bed. In the evening, the pocket doors close the room off completely, to give you a possible fifth bedroom.

There is a formal a dining room, and second dining area in the chef's kitchen that seats 6, with windows on 3 sides, views and sunshine. There are pedestal sinks and deep antique claw foot tubs in the oversized bathrooms. The master bedroom has a King bed, the 2nd bedroom has two twins, 3rd bedroom a single bed. The fourth bedroom is a large, 24'x 12' dormer style studio with queen and full size beds, and it's own private staircase that leads directly to the kitchen. All bedrooms are air-conditioned.
The large backyard is filled with shade trees and stays quite cool in summer, perfect for reading in one of the six lounge chairs, or taking a snooze in the hammock. The large brick patio with 2 Weber charcoal grills has tables and chairs to accommodate 10 comfortably for outdoor dining. Relax in the huge yard that backs against acres of open country land for peace, privacy, and a great view.... especially at sunset. The double outdoor shower has a cedar floor and is nestled in a lush private garden.
We offer all of the comforts of home, but with a little something rustic left from days gone by. The property is extremely comfortable, and we are priced very competitively for the size and style home we offer. We are sure you will enjoy it!

About Maria Capotorto Joseph Zizzo
New York natives who love Long Island and love the North Fork. We are both creative types, and so we appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the creation of this unique home. We love it with all our hearts.
Maria Capotorto Joseph Zizzo purchased this House in 1999
Why Maria Capotorto Joseph Zizzo chose East Marion
Truly built by a wealthy sea captain in 1860, it was owned by the same fishing family until the late 1970's. We are the fourth owners of this classic home, which has since been updated with modern amenities - yet with the rustic charm of the 1800s left intact. The North Fork is like no other place in the world, and we have been to many! The fishing and farming cultures have engendered a work ethic and an appreciation of nature in the people of the area that we really love.

Beautifully Restored Home
The owners are to be congratulated in providing a true home for our weekend escape. There is plenty of room for all of us to enjoy a quiet moment or join together for a snooze out back or a meal at the dining table. With the wineries minutes away, this is a wonderful spot to begin our explorations. And the lavender farm across the street is a fragrant bonus.
Home away from home
What a great home! Very eclectic and fun. Down the road from a great little grocery/cafe and filed with everything you could need. We stayed for our daughters wedding and it fit all of us and some of the bridal party easily. Great sound system, surround sound on the Arab and a closet full of games! We had a blast and never had to leave! Thank you!
Enchanting Sea Captain's Home with great location on the North Fork
Enjoyed our girls getaway weekend on the North Fork. Beautiful home.. minutes to everything with attentive owners who want to make it all worth your while. Big dining room for long meals, lots of space to unwind and relax. We were sorry it was already October so too late in the season to use the big, lovely outdoor space. Overall a house worth enjoying!
Our stay was perfect from start to finish. The home has everything you need to have a fantastic stay. Next time I am in the North Fork, I hope to stay here again.
The Sea Captains house is full of charm, character and is maintained beautifully.
Spent a wonderful week exploring all the nooks and crannies of the North Fork from this perfectly located property. Located within walking distance to great breakfast sandwiches (Fork & Anchor), local farm stands, and a quick drive to perfect beaches/golf/vineyards, Greenport & Orient. The house itself is immaculate, comfortable, and mirrors the easy charm of the area. Has all the needed amenities of a home away home, as well as the delightful feel of a vacation/escape.
We are so glad we spent time with our family with this rental. Could not have imagined any other location that suited all of our needs.
From the time of booking until after checkout the owners could not have made the process easier for us, always available for questions/suggestions. Maria and Joe could not have been more welcoming...
Thank you and would love to visit again!!!
The Sea Captain's home was even more charming in person than in the photos. A great get-away spot!
We had a lovely stay at the Sea Captain's home. The house had everything we needed and more plus plenty of charm. Would happily stay again.
