Romantic Getaways on Long Island

February 9th, 2012 by Gail

It’s easy to understand why so many people plan romantic getaways on Long Island. There is something inherently romantic about the place, especially the North Fork.

East Marion

Stroll hand in hand along the shores of nearby Marion Lake.

The water embraces us on three sides, filling the air with that distinctive, salty fragrance. The rhythmic sound of lapping waves is never far from the ears. There are few people here–enough to justify excellent restaurants and wineries, but not so many as to make it feel crowded. There are miles of sandy beaches to walk. You can see the stars at night.

When was the last time you devoted a weekend to romance? When was the last time you went away with your one and only? Was it last fall? Last summer? Isn’t it time you had a romantic getaway at our Long Island NY Bed and Breakfast?

Linger over a late dinner in nearby Greenport, and sleep in the following morning. When you awake, make your way downstairs to a romantic, candlelit, four-course breakfast. Pamper yourself with spa services. Hire a car to transport you to several of the award-winning wineries close to our inn. Walk hand in hand along the beach. Go for a nice, long bike ride.

Romantic Getaways on Long Island

Valentine’s Day and the Presidents’ Day long weekend both fall in February, making it as good a month as any for a romantic getaway on Long Island. Take advantage of our Lovers’ Magic Romantic Getaway Special, and treat your sweetie right.

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!
