Fireworks display

Enjoy the 2012 Fourth of July Celebrations in Southold and Greenport, NY!

During your stay at our Long Island Wine Country bed & breakfast, don’t miss out on the local Independence Day celebrations. Southold and Greenport will be hosting fun 4th of July events.

Southold, NY 4th of July Parade 2012

At noon on Wednesday, July 4th, the Southold Village Merchants will have their 15th Annual 4th of July Parade. Arrive before the festivities to get a good spot and enjoy a good old fashioned 4th of July parade. Wave a flag as the marching bands, classic cars, floats and red, white & blue riders on horseback pass by to cheers and applause. The route will start at Boisseau Avenue and continue to Tucker Lane Route 25. For more information, call (631) 765-4100.

2012 Greenport Carnival and Fireworks

Only five minutes from the inn, Greenport’s annual Carnival will offer a wide range of fun events, rides and games from July 3-7. The Greenport Carnical is open every evening from 6-11 p.m. at Moore’s Lane. Get on the carousel and have that once-a-year elephant ear or your favorite forbidden carnival treat! It’s a worthy cause too; the event raises funds for Greenport’s 7th Relief Hose Co. & Phenix Hook & Ladder Co #1.

There will be spectacular fireworks displays not only on the 4th of July, but also on Saturday, July 7th at 10 p.m. Arrive a bit earlier to the rear of the Green Port High School grounds at 720 Front Street if you want to watch the fireworks up close. Whatever spot you choose, bring your picnic blanket and goodies to enjoy with the show. If the merriment of a 4th of July crowd isn’t your style, you can always watch the fireworks as you stroll the nearby beaches.

Before the evening events, you can arrive during the day to experience downtown Greenport, NY. The fine seafood restaurants will be open and quaint stores beckon with antiques and unique arts and crafts.

After all the excitement of the North Fork 4th of July, you’ll love returning to your comfortable bed at our Long Island, NY accommodations.

Our New North Fork Wine Country Blog

September 30th, 2009 by wilfredjoseph

BLOG OR DIE!!!

To Blog or not to Blog that is the question. Whether it is better to get lost and left behind as a Luddite and suffer the thought that you are growing old and losing touch with your youth, or to go to the computer and write and share and join forces with the youthful masses. And, by opposing do nothing.  Therefore to turn old, to be disconnected, to be left back in the 20th century, to be dead.”

I like life so therefore I blog.

As you can see I am attempting to paraphrase Shakespeare (and trying to be funny too)  to explain the quandary that I have been experiencing these last few months since I recognized that I was going to write a blog. And as I am no Shakespeare, I will not bore you anymore prose like that and proceed with my blog.

FOUR REASONS TO BLOG

Blogging is all the rage now for businesses.  Business people now get to share their experiences with those who are interested and willing to read.  As I understand it, there are three main reasons to blog.

  1. To Brag about your products, services and events (Veda’s delicious date nut bread)
  2. To share your personal stories and experiences (The joys of maintaining a 200 year old house)
  3. To drive people to your website and grow your business ( I like this one)
  4. Search engines love it because the content is fresh and easier to update than a website

WHAT TO EXPECT

Therefore I am excited to announce to our fans that we will be sharing things about the B&B, The North Fork, the wineries, my thoughts with you our fans, clients and others.  I am very excited, as in very new project I must temper my enthusiasm with common-sense and not overwhelm you. I have a lot that I want to share with you.

OUR TENTH ANNIVERSARY

Arbor View House Bed & Breakfast is celebrating our 10th year in business.  We started our B&B in Late August 1999.  We really thought that we knew what we were doing.  In that time we have seen so many things change, new additions and upgrades to the B&B, 9/11, two wars, two new grandchildren, a black president, additional B&Bs in the area and many new wineries among other things.  One thing that has remained constant is our love of what we do being Innkeepers.  Veda and I love what we do and love our guests.

We get a tremendous amount of pleasure from providing service and seeing the pleasure they derive from it.  We would not be able to do it all without guests, supporters, friends, relatives and suppliers.  This has been a blast and we are looking for to having fun on the roller coaster for a while.

We started out by saying that we would get the best guests, and we have and that we would do two things exceptionally well, BED and BREAKFAST, and we’ve managed to do just that.

WINE COUNTRY

To remind you and me, we live in a beautiful piece of Nature’s handiwork called Long Island’s East End.  Specifically, here on the North Fork as opposed to the Hamptons, we experience the bucolic nature of the area.  Here we have wineries, vineyards, farms, pristine beaches, hiking trails, preserves, ponds, fishing and best of all “the light”.  The Light is often described by painters that source of light that makes things luminous.  In addition the weather that is so much different and milder than in New York City.  Come visit us sometime soon.
