North Fork’s Jazz on the Vine

February 27th, 2012 by Gail

Good wine is delectable. Good jazz is delightful. The combination of outstanding wine and jazz is cause for jubilation. These days there is much jubilation on the North Fork of Long Island, thanks to Jazz on the Vine.

Long Island Winterfest, Jazz on the Vine

Several weekends of superlative jazz and wine on the North Fork of Long Island.

Jazz on the Vine brings exceptional jazz musicians to Long Island wineries from February 11 to March 18, 2012. During these six weekends, North Fork wineries simply buzz with activity and music. Guests of our Long Island Bed and Breakfast are well situated to take advantage of all the special events.

This is the fifth winter that jazz and wine are joining forces on Long Island. The program in 2012 is even bigger and better than in past years, with more than 70 performances at 20 wineries. On any given day, one can hear several performances and try wines from different vineyards.

Jazz on the Vine hosts award winning jazz groups, such as the Vadim Neselovskyi Trio and All that Jazz, an All Star Super Band known for its expansive repertoire rooted in Mambo, Funk, Nordic, South African and Jazz. There are jazz quartets, jazz singers, and funky duos. There are Afro-Cuban Jazz musicians, Brazilian musicians, and musicians with Gospel roots. The variety of music that floods North Fork Wineries during Jazz on the Vine is almost as astounding as the sheer talent behind it.

Participating New York wineries include: Bating Hollow Farm Vineyard in Baiting Hollow, Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, and Peconic Bay Winery in Cutchogue. Numerous performances take place each Saturday and Sunday. Venues include waterfront tasting rooms and majestic estates overlooking acres of grape vines. Avid wine tasters and jazz fans can make their way from one vineyard to the next, sipping different varietals as they are serenaded by different musicians.

You won’t want to return to the city after an afternoon of wine tasting. You’ll want to sleep on the North Fork of Long Island and then repeat the glorious experience the following day. You can. Spend the weekend at Arbor View House, our New York Bed and Breakfast near Greenport.

Please find more information at Jazz on the Vine.

Discover the North Fork of Long Island

December 21st, 2011 by Gail

Our New York Bed and Breakfast is located on the North Fork of Long Island. We’re close to the glitter and opulence of the Hamptons, but the mood is more down to earth here. The towns are small and unpretentious. There are more fruit stands than bars along the roads, and more antique shops than high-end boutiques. It’s bucolic here, and we like it that way.

Guests come to our Long Island, NY Bed and Breakfast to get away from the noise and bustle of the city. They come here for fresh air, windswept beaches, and small town charm. It’s impossible not to feel reinvigorated and rejuvenated after a few days here.

Our inn sits near the tip of the North Fork of Long Island. We’re surrounded by water and beaches, and the beaches are reminiscent of Mediterranean beaches. The water is clear, the sand smooth, and the surf gentle. Even in the wintertime, there is no better place to watch the sunset than from one of the nearby beaches.

When guests have had their daily fill of beach walking, many enjoy exploring the Village of Greenport, which is just down the road from our inn. At this time of year, visitors find inspiration in the many interesting shops located in that quaint, historic town. Several antique stores feature furniture, fine arts, folk art, hand crafted stained glass, nostalgic toys, and other fun items. A number of jewelry stores feature hand made originals as well as big name jewelry, and two outstanding stores deal in wine and spirits.

beach

Rediscover your inner child; relax on Long Island beaches.

Indeed, wine tasting is a favorite activity out here. In the last couple decades, many of the farms on the North Fork of Long Island have been replaced by small wineries; and more than 2 dozen wineries are close to our Long Island, New York Bed and Breakfast. Northfork Wine Tours operates out of Greenport; they’ll collect you at our inn in the morning, whisk you away for 8 hours of wine tasting at various North Fork Long Island wineries, and return you here safely in the evening.

Come discover the North Fork of Long Island. Plan to spend a few days at our New York Bed and Breakfast as soon as you can.

Biking on the North Fork of Long Island

July 26th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Biking on the North Fork of Long Island offers many options for guests of the Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast.  Seaview trails in the Southport area offers over 57 miles of bike trails.  Trails can range from 5 5 to 14 miles and can accommodate all levels of experience.  The trails include Southold Bay Loop, Mattituck, Orient Loop, and Southold View Loop.  The ocean views are spectacular and their trails are safe and easy.   

Of course, bike riding is a year around activity on Long Island and if you are an avid biker then consider joining one of the many bicycling groups in the area.  If you are just visiting the area, stick to the defined bike trails, as traffic can get busy on the main road.  Some of the biking groups include:

  • Bicycle Long Island
  • Suffolok Bicycle Riders Associations
  • Huntington Bicycle Club
  • Massapequa Park Bicycle Club
  • GBSC Bicycle Racing Team
  • Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers
  • Low-Impact Bike Paths in the New York/Long island region

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.

Call for reservations at 631-477-6720 tell them Arbor View House sent you.
