In our last post, we discussed some of the lovely beaches on the North Fork of Long Island. The sunny days are rapidly returning to us – which means the beach is the place to be!
When you visit New York, come up Long Island and visit us for some R&R at the Arbor View House Inn! We are conveniently located next to many nice beaches. Each has something different to offer, depending on the experience you want. Now, without further adieu, here is the rest of the list…
North Fork Beaches
New Suffolk Beach – One of the more popular beaches on the Peconic Bay, New Suffolk is also monitored by lifeguards (one of the few with this service).
Like many North Fork beaches, it’s popular with boaters and fishermen.
Breakwater Beach and Park – A large beach in Mattituck, Breakwater is perhaps known best for its beach volleyball and protected waterfowl nests (piping plovers).
Southold Town Beach – This beach is also popular in the winter because the parking lot is very close to the water and you can just sit and watch the waves. If you do choose to visit longer, this is a quiet beach with distant bluffs and it won’t disappoint.
Goldsmith Inlet Park – The main reason to visit this beach: A classic Long Island sunset. Rock jetties and the scenic wetlands around Goldsmith Pond also make a great backdrop for birdwatchers and photographers. But if you want to watch the sunset on Long Island, come here.
Lodging in Long Beach
When you visit New York’s Long Island, we invite you to come down to the North Fork and stay with us at Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast. Not only do we provide luxury accommodations and a delicious breakfast each morning, we also have on-site spa services!

In case you were wondering, our North Fork bed and breakfast in East Marion sustained little destruction and stayed open for business throughout Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath. We suffered some small damage: trees and branches down, some fencing down and leaves and debris all over the place.
When we see how devastated people are in Staten Island and in New Jersey we are thankful that we only had some minor damage and lost power for three days. We are so grateful.
If you, like many along the east coast, are still without power, please come and stay with us. We have are regaining our calm and peace here. Our fireplaces are stoked and glowing to warm you.

Have a Long Island NY Romantic Getaway at our North Fork bed and breakfast. We are great believers in bringing ease and relaxation to our guests in every way we can. One of these methods is the use aromatherapy. An aromatherapy bath will stimulate your six senses. This form of alternative medicine uses essential oils, music and other sources of mood enhancing aromas to bring about good health. This service is unique to our Bed and Breakfast here on the North Fork.
For thousands of years, humans have used the essences of plants for healing purposes. But it is Dr. Jean Valnet who is credited with founding the modern aromatherapy movement during the mid 20th century. Today, aromatherapy continues to benefit millions of people around the world…including guests at our Long Island B&B!
In particular, our Six Senses Aromatherapy is unique to Arbor View’s spa treatments. We have specially formulated this combination of sensory delights to stimulate sight, sound, smell, taste, touch and…romance!
The Six Senses treatment is often given after dinner as a very special “dessert.” Your bath room is decorated with candles. We play the romantic music of your choice. There’s delicious champagne and chocolate truffles, and rose petals are scattered about the room. A bath of carefully combined essential oils soothes and relaxes. We can also provide a scroll printed with romantic poetry to be read to your loved one. This treatment is altogether refreshing, strengthening and eases away stress. It’s truly a wonderful way to show someone you care.
Long Island Romantic Getaway
The Arbor View House Six Senses Aromatherapy is also a perfect way to surprise your partner. If this sounds (smells, tastes…) good to you, this romantic spa treatment is offered as an individual item or it can be combined with our other romantic packages. Contact us at (631) 477-8440 or 1-800-963- 8777 today if you want to give the ultimate surprise to your sweetheart.

The Tall Ships 2012 are coming to Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island over Memorial Day Weekend.
This is an extraordinary occasion–a chance to see some of the most glorious ships in the world under sail. The ships will arrive on Friday, May 25th and depart on Tuesday, May 29. While they’re docked in the Village of Greenport, visitors are invited to step on board and speak with members of the crew.
It’s magnificent to simply see the ships. Being able to tour them is, as they say, icing on the cake.
We’re looking forward to Memorial Day Weekend at our North Fork Long Island Bed and Breakfast, which is about five minutes from the Village of Greenport. You can bike to Greenport from Arbor View House in about fifteen minutes; that’s a good option during busy times like Memorial Day Weekend with the Tall Ships in town.
There will be vendors in town and Front Street will be closed each day until 6 pm.
Come see the Pride of Baltimore II, a reproduction 1812-era topsail schooner and the Goodwill Ambassador of the State of Maryland.
Come see the Picton Castle, a three-masted, square rigger tall ship based in Nova Scotia.
Come see the H.M.S. Bounty, a movie-star of a ship and a relic of the famous ship that was mutinied off the coast of Tahiti in 1789.
Come to the North Fork of Long Island to see the Tall Ships over Memorial Day Weekend. Stay at our Bed and Breakfast near Greenport while you’re here. Guests will receive 4 tickets (per couple) to Tall Ship events.

To have a truly relaxing Long Island Bed and Breakfast experience, it helps to have a massage. That’s why we bring the massage to you at Arbor View House.
Is there anything more relaxing in life than a massage? A good massage can melt your muscles and dissolve stress. It can alleviate pain, increase flexibility, and heal sore muscles. Massage can increase energy and decrease depression. It can heal. It also just plain feels good.
Take advantage of the spa services we offer at our North Fork Long Island Bed and Breakfast, whether you suffer from aches and pains or simply want to feel good. Licensed massage therapists will come to Arbor View House and massage you in your own room. We work with several different massage therapists, and are therefore able to provide a wide variety of services.
If you simply want to relax, try a Swedish massage; it combines deep tissue work with Myofascial release (soft tissue), Reflexology, and Trigger Point Therapy. If you suffer from a sport’s related injury, have a Sport Massage and really work on your injured area. If you want to give your organs a treat, try Shiatsu; this ancient Japanese healing system works the energy points of the body and stimulates internal organs.
Hot Stone massage reveals how a combination of heat and Swedish massage can remove pain from sore muscles. Thai massage, said to be the physical manifestation of loving compassion, balances and energizes the body through slow movements and stretches. Reiki is a form of energy work, and can be deeply healing.
We also offer couples massages, maternity massages and aromatherapy at our North Fork Bed and Breakfast. Yoga classes (private or public) are also available, and if you just don’t feel right without your gym workout, ask us about our local gym.
The skin is the largest organ–it deserves to be pampered from time to time. Why not pamper it the next time you stay at Arbor View House?
Please see our Spa Services for a complete list of the services offered at Arbor View House.
