Have a perfect vacation in our pristine two-story farmhouse style house. There are three bedrooms and two full baths. On the main floor, there is an extra large living room, a large, fully stocked eat-in kitchen, a dining room with sliding doors onto a full deck, a TV/family room, a bathroom with shower and a laundry area with a large washer and dryer. The bedrooms and a large full bath are upstairs.
The house is clean, bright and airy with large rooms, lots of windows and attractive and comfortable furnishings.
The property consists of a flat half acre of beautifully landscaped lawn containing an oversized L-shaped in-ground pool. The pool has a large shallow area with wide steps and a built-in shelf seat. The deep end has a water slide which is fun for everyone.
The house is located across the street from Peconic Bay in East Marion, at the bottom of a quiet horseshoe shaped road with very little traffic. The location is perfect – only two miles to the town of Greenport and all its restaurants, shops and attractions and a short ten minute ride to the quaint village of Orient, Orient Beach State Park and the Orient-New London Ferry.
The immediate neighborhood offers wonderful recreational activities, all easily accessible from the house. The Islands End Golf and Country Club, with driving range and beautiful golf course open to the public, is diagonally across the main road; Sep’s Farm Stand, one of the larger of the many sought after farm stands in the area, is at the top of the hill; the very popular Hellenic Restaurant is within walking distance as well.
You can enjoy a private sand beach on the bay, 500 feet from the front door, if you can bring yourself to move away from relaxing around the backyard pool.
The area is perfect for bike riding and running, with largely flat roads and little traffic. Bring your kayak and take it out from the neighborhood beach.
For adults, the house and the area are a haven of relaxation and privacy. For adults with children, there is an abundance of things to do for kids even if you decide to stay right in the neighborhood. Between hours of fun in the pool, the beach, playing in the big yard and walking to the farm stand for delicious vegetables and corn, your children’s days will be full and fun-filled.
My husband and I bought our house in East Marion in 1992 when our two daughters were very young. We have always loved coming out to our East Marion house where we can relax, enjoy the area, the beach, the pool and the delicious regional foods. The tranquil, sun-filled days and the dark, starry nights make us feel like we've traveled to a foreign land. For many years, we used the house only for ourselves and we still spend our own summer vacation in East Marion. However, our current situation does not allow us to enjoy the property as often as we'd like so we've been renting the house to varying degrees for the last ten years, mostly to return renters who have enjoyed the house as much as we do and come back year after year. We present the house as we would want to find a vacation home - pristinely clean, welcoming and with all the comforts of your year round home. We love hearing compliments and praises from our renters and we especially love having renters return the following year.
Adrienne Buskard purchased this house in 1993
We fell in love with our East Marion property as soon as we saw it. We loved the location, on a quiet horseshoe road, close to the bay. The house is spacious and the rooms are all very good sized and airy. We loved the deck and the barn. Then we bought the lot behind us, put in the pool and everything was perfect.
Proximity to the beach and location on a quiet street. Closeness to Greenport, golf and a large farmstand. The oversized pool with its large shallow end, curved slide into the deep end and surrounding patio is fun for everyone and great for relaxing.
We stayed in Adrienne's home last weekend and it was absolutely lovely. There were two couples, one small dog and my six year old daughter. The house itself if spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. The yard is huge and filled with native plants and trees-- and a very well maintained in-ground pool! Relax on the chaise lounges or float around on a giant golden goose. My daughter had a blast going down the slide and jumping off rocks that act as a diving platform.
There are several areas for outdoor dining and the grill is clean and ready for use. The home was well stocked, including the kitchen. There was a Keurig machine with coffee pods which was a great surprise since we got there at 11:30pm and forgot to pick anything up for the morning. The bedrooms are all nicely sized, as are the rest of the rooms. The bed in the Master room was incredibly comfy! The other couple said the same about their room. There were three TV's and a stereo but we were outdoors more of the time so we didn't use them much. Having WiFi that's actually fast was a huge bonus! though There are also tons of interesting books and CD's to check out along with yard games and a child's bike in the shed. There's nothing that I could've thought of that wasn't there.
Greenport is a few minutes drive away but the house is located in a very quiet neighborhood so you get all of the benefits of seclusion with the ability to be in town within 5 minutes. There's also a small strip of beach about a block away where you can hunt for shells and watch the shore birds. We were lucky enough to catch the Osprey hanging out and fishing!
Adrienne is very responsive and friendly, going above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I will absolutely be back again and highly recommend anyone looking to stay at this home. Thanks Adrienne!
My post is somewhat different in that I did not have the opportunity to stay at this clearly beautiful home. However, I am posting since I want to review my experiences dealing with the host.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to cancel my reservation. My dealings with Adrienne, the host, were absolutely incredible. From the time I booked it to the time I had to cancel she was nothing but gracious through and through. She makes herself very available and is fair and honest. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be booking and staying here in the future. She has really taught me some important lessons and I don't even know her personally! Judging by the other reviews, a stay here is magical. Can't wait to stay one day...
My parents came to visit from abroad to visit for a few weeks. I was looking for a place we could just relax and enjoy our time together with minimal stress, planning, etc.
I was lucky enough to come across the house in East Marion. It was exactly what I was looking for. The home is beautiful. The appointments, details, cleanliness and overall comfort of the house made us feel at home. Being from Brooklyn, having such an expansive yard and a gorgeous pool is non-existent. This was nirvana for my 3.5 year old son. The pool is just amazing. It is huge, very well maintained and was built to work with the geography of the property. Additionally, there is a small private beach about a 2-minute walk from the house. It is a bay beach. It is perfect for a family with small children who want to sit on a beach and swim with their children without worrying about tides, waves, etc.
Not only is the house and property amazing, the town is very quaint, beautiful and full of great restaurants, galleries, etc. Town is a quick drive from the house. Around East Marion, there are some wonderful wineries to tour.
My contact and owner of the property, Adrienne, is just a delightful person. She was so nice, so helpful and just a pleasure to interact with.
In short, I now have a wonderful "go to" vacation spot when I want to get away with my family. What a wonderful vacation.
Great time !! Great host ! Already made a booking for next year.
This house was beautiful. Very clean, comfortable and enjoyable to stay. The pool and grounds are fantastic! Definitely will make this a place to visit again and again. The owners are terrific and incredibly accommodating. All around fabulous time!
We rented this house for the weekend of our son's wedding and it perfectly suited the bill. The three bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and the layout is perfect for everyone to have their own privacy. The property is spacious and there's a lovely deck. It's a great property for entertaining for just hanging out - steps from a small but lovely beach. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a private getaway with two water options, close to fabulous restaurants and the beautiful Orient State Park.
Greenport offers an abundance of antique stores and galleries, plenty of delicious ice cream stores, Mitchell Park on the water with its camera obscura and the famous Greenport Carousel. There are both good upscale and kid-friendly restaurants.
The North Fork is the main wine growing area on Long Island and you will have a large selection of great wineries to visit for lunch, wine sampling and purchasing some excellent local wines.
For a great day and wonderful learning adventure for families, marine biologists at the Suffolk County Marine Environmental Learning Center in nearby Southold will show you how to grow oysters, scallops and clams and you can participate in the working shellfish hatchery, community water gardens, boat-building shop and touch tank, as well as visit the aquariums, and wetlands. There is also a free and uncrowded beach to enjoy. On Saturday evenings, the Custer Institute, a small observatory, also located in Southold, is open to the public for guided tours of the beautiful North Fork night sky.
You can spend the day in Riverhead, visiting the wonderful Long Island Aquarium or shopping at the largest outlet mall in the region.
