Empress Aromatherapy Bath at our Long Island, NY Romantic Getaway

Enjoy an Empress Aromatherapy Bath on your Romantic Getaway at our North Fork, Long Island, NY bed and breakfast.  We are great believers in bringing ease and relaxation to our guests in every way we can.  One of these methods is the use of aromatherapy.  An aromatherapy bath will stimulate your six senses.  This form of alternative medicine uses essential oils, music, and other sources of mood-enhancing aromas to bring about good health.   This service is unique to our Bed and Breakfast here on the North Fork.
For thousands of years, humans have used the essence of plants for healing purposes.  Today, aromatherapy continues to benefit millions of people worldwide, including guests at our Long Island B&B!  But it is Dr. Jean Valnet who is credited with founding the modern aromatherapy movement during the mid-20th century.
In particular, our Empress Aromatherapy is unique to Arbor View’s spa treatments.  We have specially formulated this combination of sensory delights to stimulate sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and romance!
The Six Senses treatment is often given after dinner as an extraordinary “dessert.” Your bathroom is decorated with candles.  We play romantic music of your choice.  There are delicious champagne and chocolate truffles, and rose petals are scattered about the room.  A bath of carefully combined essential oils soothes and relaxes.  We can also provide a scroll printed with romantic poetry to be read to your loved one.  This treatment is altogether refreshing, strengthening, and eases away stress.  It’s genuinely an excellent way to show someone you care.

Long Island, NY Romantic Getaway

The Empress Aromatherapy Bath at our Long Island, NY Romantic Getaway is also a perfect way to surprise your partner.  If this sounds (smells, tastes, or feels) good to you, this romantic spa treatment is offered as an individual item or can combine with another romantic package.  Contact us at Arbor View House (631) 477-8440 today if you want to give the ultimate surprise to your sweetheart.

Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island

Yes, the Hamptons on the South Fork of Long Island has those beautiful white sand beaches, while our lovely North Fork beaches are pebbly. It’s true. But if you love to be where the wine is, the Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island. So when you stay at our B&B near Greenport, NY, you’ll be close to the majority of the wineries.
Far and away, the North Fork is where most Long Island wineries are clustered. The clustering is partly because of the sunny yet protected maritime climate. The glacial soils also drain well while providing enough nutrients and moisture for the vines. Many people on the East Coast still don’t realize that a tremendous wine-producing area is only a short drive away! However, wine lovers have gotten the message. The wine-making industry has grown considerably since the first winery, Hargrave Vineyards in Cutchogue, opened in 1975. It is now called The Borghese Vineyard. The Long Island Wine Region now has over 55 wineries open to the public, with 4000+ acres of vines.

The American Viticultural Areas of Long Island–North Fork of Long Island, The Hamptons, and Long Island, are recognized as some of the country’s finest grape growing and wine producing AVAs.

Most of the acreage is Vinifera grapes. The main varietals are Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but others include Chenin Blanc, Dolcetto, Gewurztraminer, Lemberger, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Syrah, Tocai Friulano, and Viognier.
The wineries of Long Island frequently have events throughout the year, such as  WinterFest, in the winter months, Summer Wine Camps, North Fork Crush in June, and Wine Spectator’s Harvest East End in September. Beyond these special events, most wineries on Long Island offer both tastings and tours. For more information about the Long Island Wine Country.

Great wines are produced only a short drive from New York City and other major East Coast cities. Come to Long Island’s North Fork and experience some of the best wines in the U.S. without traveling very far! Our Bed and Breakfast near Greenport is just the place to stay during your East End Long Island wineries tour.

As much as we look forward to the holiday season, there can also be a sense of relief once they’ve passed: phew!

Why start off the new year feeling old when you can treat yourself to a Long Island spa getaway at our North Fork wine country B&B?
