Long Island North Fork Hiking Trails

May 12th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Spring is just a perfect time to enjoy scenic walks and trails on the North Fork of Long Island.  Within the Southold and Greenport areas of Long Island, the choices for nature trails for hiking and bird watching are in great abundance.

Long Island North Fork Hiking Trails List:

Cedar Beach Country Park in Southold is a 68 acre park with over 2,800 feet on Shelter Island Sound.  From the park, visitors can enjoy great vistas of Shelter Island Sound and the saltwater marshes of Cedar Beach Harbor.

Arshamomaque Point in Southold encompasses a 54-acres wooded preserve with several trails that wind through mature woodlands, ponds, and saltwater wetlands.

Arshamomaque Preserve in Greenport is a 120 acre preserved owned by the Town of Southold.  They have 1.3 miles of nature trails that wander through mature woodlands, freshwater wetlands, and open fields.

Inlet Pond Park in Greenport enjoys a 55 acre preserve with 1.6 miles of trails leading to Inlet Pond and Long Island Sound.  The North Fork Audubon has a visitor’s center and also offers nature programs.

Dam Pond Maritime Reserve in East Marion is a 36 acre reserve also owned by the Town of Southold.  Here you can enjoy a small protected bay, grasslands, saltwater marshes and woodlands.  There is also a trail that wanders through the reserve which is 1.2 miles long. This trail is a favorite of bird watchers and I love jogging in this park.  The Audubon Society keeps track of the birds that are found here.   This reserve is about a quarter mile from the B&B. I regularly hike there myself.

It will take some time to try them all, but we will enjoy having you as our guest at the Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast as you explore the North Fork Wine Country of Long Island

Noah’s Restaurant Opens in Greenport, Long Island

January 28th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Noah Schwartz, former chef at the Seafood Barge in Southold, has opened a new Greenport restaurant, Long Island.  The restaurant is at the former location of the Frisky Oyster Bar on 136 Front Street and is called Noah’s.  As the Seafood Barge could not renew their lease, Noah quickly scouted the area and found that this location would be perfect for him.  Renovations were underway and now Noah’s is officially open.

Noah is a native Long Islander and a graduate of New England Culinary School and worked for over seven years in California’s wine country and then made his move to long Island North  Fork Wine country.   He has experience in opening restaurants and this one is very special to him, as it is his own.  Noah will be bring to Noah’s, a culinary experience enjoyed in California and he is already receiving positive feedback from his customers.  Recent reviews had customers raving about the scallop ceviche and pomegranate ribs.  The sardines were quite a surprise and totally delicious as is the  Pulled Duck from the Crescent Farms in Aquebogue.  There are so many Oyster dishes  so that you’d think that he’d call the place Noah’s Oysters. Even though the menu is mostly fresh seafood, Noah is a master with the Steak which  is done with Manchego Cheese and rich crispy onions, yummy.

The concept at Noah’s is to offer “small plates” at the top of his menu ranging from $6 to $15.  Thus, allowing his guests to sample multiple smaller plates and enjoying a variety of dishes.  The menu also features 2-3 oz. wine pours to accompany the small plates.  Of course, to balance this he will also have snacks on the menu beginning at $3.  Truly a delightful way to dine!

We have eaten there several times and recommended Noah’s to guests  who rave about the selections and love the ambiance and personal service. What we love the best are the small plates giving you more choices to sample several dishes.  Noah’s Restaurant is now the newest restaurant in Greenport.

Ice Skating in Greenport, Long Island

January 5th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Now that the Holidays are over, it may be time for a romantic winter getaway to Greenport, Long Island and enjoy ice skating.  During your romantic getaway we encourage you to visit Mitchell Park which is located on four acres along the waterfront of the Village of Greenport.  Mitchell Park is described as the “jewel” of the Village of Greenport and includes an observation deck and harbor walk and also offers a 60 slip marina.

While activities at Mitchell Park vary according to the season, this is the time of year to enjoy ice skating!  When I think of ice skating, I envision the romance and grace of skating and just how truly beautiful it is to watch and enjoy.  The ice skating rink at Mitchell Park is open daily and they offer skate rentals for guests without skates.  Also, if you have not been skating in a long time or have never skated before, they also offer private lessons.

After an afternoon or evening of skating, return to the Arbor View House to enjoy some afternoon delights along with a relaxing aromatherapy bath and cozy fire.  Or, take advantage of your romantic escape with a couples massage.  Then slip into your fluffy bathrobe and cuddle in for the evening.  You will have to agree that this is romance at its finest!
