A Day Trip to Shelter Island from a Bed and Breakfast

May 23rd, 2012 by Gail

Shelter Island day trip from NY Bed and Breakfast

Stretch your legs on one of Shelter Island’s beaches.

When it’s hot, the North Fork of Long Island is cooler than the city. There’s less concrete here to absorb the heat, and we’re surrounded by water. Deliciously cooling breezes come off Long Island Sound, Gardiner Bay, and Shelter Island Sound.

Guests always ask what is there to do out on the North Fork.  One of the things we suggest is a day trip to Shelter Island.

Nearby Shelter Island makes a wonderful day trip for guests of our New York Bed and Breakfast. The ferry between Greenport and Shelter Island runs frequently, and bikes are available for rent at Piccozzi’s Garage and Bike Shop, a short walk from the ferry terminal. The island is mostly flat, so cycling is easy.

We can help you in creating a picnic for your stop at a beach at the end of Bootleggers Alley.

Both Crescent Beach and Silver Beach are great spots for swimming. The water, protected by the North and South Forks of Long Island, is calm and fairly warm.

These same sheltered waters are fun to explore in a kayak. Park your bike at Shelter Island Kayak Tours, and let them lead you on a two hour tour.

Cycle down to the 2,000-acre Mashomack Preserve on the southeast tip of the island. The Nature Conservancy maintains four trails of varying lengths and difficulty. If you’re on a bike, you may want to avoid the 11 mile trail and stick with the 1.5 mile trail to the shore.

Bed will feel so good after a biking around Shelter Island.

There are a few nice spots to grab a bite to eat on Shelter Island. Vine Street Café serves wonderful, seasonally-inspired food, but reservations are recommended. Ram’s Head has amazing seafood, such as Lobster Sausage and Green “Gazpacho”.  Pat & Steve’s Family Restaurant is the perfect spot to grab a sandwich, and it serves pancakes all day.

You’ll be thankful for the generous breakfast Veda provided before your biking excursion, and you’ll be ready to relax once you get back to Arbor View House NY Bed and Breakfast.  Even though we are not a Shelter Island Bed and Breakfast but we are not far away.   Later on you may even want to take advantage of our spa services, and schedule a massage or aroma-therapy bath for that evening or the following day!

Spring Wine Tasting Weekend, Long Island Bed and Breakfast

Plan a spring wine tasting tour of Long Island.

2012 Spring Passport to Long Island Wine Country special is underway through June 1. In other words, this is a fabulous time to come spend a few days at  Arbor View House  our  North Fork Long Island Bed and Breakfast near historic Greenport, NY.

You know how fun it is to visit a foreign land and come home with a new stamp on your passport? Well, each time you visit a participating Long Island Winery and purchase a bottle of wine, you’ll get a stamp on your “passport”.

Visit at least 10 participating wineries and receive:

  • A complimentary tasting of a featured wine (with purchase of an any in-house tasting).
  • 2 admission tickets for the price of 1 to the 2012 Taste of Summer event at Old Bethpage Village on June 2.
  • A chance to win an East End Experience Gift Package.

 

In addition, you’ll have had the wonderful experience of visiting many Long Island wineries and trying their wine. Like travel, this will broaden your mind and tantalize your palate!

Participating Long Island Wineries are too numerous to list here, but all 35 of them are listed on the Long Island Wine Country website.

Rest assured, you’ll find many participating wineries close to our North Fork Long Island Bed and Breakfast. Peconic Bay Winery, Bedell Cellars, and Old Field Vineyards (try their Cabernet Franc) are three of the closest.

When you stay with us you’ll get a wine discount card that will increase your savings even more.

Plan a Spring Wine Tasting Getaway on Long Island soon, and fill your passport!
