Romantic Getaways on Long Island North Fork

It's easy to understand why many people plan romantic Getaways on Long Island North Fork. The place is inherently romantic, especially the North Fork of Long Island in Wine Country. 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 before Covid-19? Two summers ago? Isn't it time you had a romantic getaway to relax, rejuvenate, and revive your spirit at our Long Island NY Bed and Breakfast? Linger over a late dinner in nearby Greenport, and sleep the following morning. Wake up to the smell of brewing coffee and get yours outside your door.  Leisurely make your way downstairs to a romantic, three-course breakfast when you awake. Pamper yourself with spa services. Please arrange for a couple's massage at our unique partner spa. Hire a car to transport you to several award-winning wineries like Sparkling Pointe, close to our inn. You can do so much to reignite the flame and recreate the intimacy.  You could walk hand in hand along Rocky Point beach just down the road, go for a nice long bike ride to Orient State Park or sip champagne on the deck or garden. East Marion is just two miles east of Greenport and past the Lavender Farm. At this end of the Island, water embraces us on three sides, filling the air with that distinctive, salty fragrance. The rhythmic sound of lapping waves is never far from your ears. The area is not well populated. There are few people here--enough to justify excellent restaurants and wineries, but not so many to make it feel crowded. There are miles of sandy beaches to walk to and you can see the stars at night. Romantic Getaways on Long Island Celebrate a holiday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, or any holiday or long weekend is a  good time for a romantic getaway on Long Island. Make an excuse to be romantic and come out to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, babymoon or elopement. Take advantage of our Romantic Getaway, and treat your sweetie right. We'll also provide a coupon for dinner at either The Frisky Oyster or Noah's. Bring your sweetie here to pop the question. Come here to celebrate an anniversary.

Arbor View House -Your Long Island Wedding Venue

Newlyweds

Imagine a lovely romantic day in a beautiful setting with all your loved ones and friends present.  They’re all having a wonderful time, and you are stress-free.  Isn’t that what you imagine for your wedding day?

Why ruin the most magical and romantic day of your life, your wedding day, with a big elaborate affair?  A big wedding comes with stress, debt, and continuous planning.  There’s a much easier way at our small Long Island Wine Country wedding venue Arbor View House!

Big weddings may seem fun and romantic from the outside but let me tell you, once you’re embroiled in making one happen, those illusions are often quickly dispelled.  Of course, if money is no object and you’re interested in how good a show you put on, then, by all means, go right ahead.

You’ll probably prefer a more intimate wedding ceremony if you want to express your love and commitment without breaking the bank.

Inexpensive vs. Cheap

People often think that an inexpensive wedding means a cheap one.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  On the flip side, you can pay a lot for chintz!  Good things need not be expensive.

In other words, it’s not the money, but the style and care going into your ceremony that defines whether it’s “cheap” or not.

Intimate wedding ceremonies take less time to plan, with fewer details involved.  A choice like this means less stress and more flexibility when planning your ceremony.

A smaller guest list means a more intimate ceremony.  While sharing your special day with EVERYONE is tempting, those big crowds can be very impersonal.  You are more sure of connecting with your guests with a smaller group.  You’ll also be more likely to find a few moments alone with your intended, as well as more control over the feel of the wedding itself.  PRICELESS.

A smaller wedding can also mean more money for things like the photographer, catering, or a band.  Then again, maybe you can save it for your honeymoon or your new home together!

At the very least, you’ll buy fewer regrets with a small wedding.

Small Long Island Wedding Venue

Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast is your answer to the small Long Island wedding venue question.  We can help plan all aspects of your ceremony: from music and catering to photography and a wedding officiant.  Even better, our Long Island Bed and Breakfast can host many of your overnight guests for the event!

If you’d like to learn more about how we can help you make the most of your special day, call (631) 477-8440!

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

For the best wine on Long Island, go no farther than the Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island. Yes, the Hamptons on the South Fork of Long Island have those beautiful white sand beaches, while our lovely North Fork beaches are pebbly. It’s true but join us here if you love to be where the wine is.  So,  when you stay at our B&B near Greenport, NY, you’ll be in the heart of Long Island Wine Country.

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, 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 Long Island wineries offer tastings and tours. For more information about the Long Island Wine Country.

My Favorite Vineyards and Wineries on the North Fork of Long Island

One of my favorites is Kontakosta in Greenport.  The winery is set back in the vineyard at least a quarter of a mile from the street. You come upon this majestic building designed and built with reclaimed barn wood and glass.  There is a magnificent view on a clear day of the Long Island Sound at the end of the property.  This is the only vineyard with a view of the sound.

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.

Long Island Spa GetawayThe end-of-the-year holidays can be an awful lot of fun – but also an awful lot of work! Reward yourself for getting through them – and the year! – with a Long Island spa getaway in North Fork wine country!
As much as we look forward to the holiday season, there can also be a sense of relief once they’ve passed: phew! It’s wonderful to see so many friends and family in so short a time but the net result of so many parties, dinners, and get-togethers can be real fatigue. 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?

We’ve said it many times and it bears repeating: there’s always something fun to do on Long Island’s North Fork. This is especially true during the end of the year holidays.

Holidays On Long Island's North ForkThere’s always something fun to do on Long Island’s North Fork but the holidays always shine brightest. It’s non-stop events when you enjoy the holidays on Long Island’s North Fork!
Last post, we highlighted one of Greenport’s biggest end-of-the-year events: Greenport Shellabration 2017, December 2nd and 3rd. While Shellabration is definitely something you don’t want to miss, it’s hardly only event scheduled during the holidays on Long Island’s North Fork. Oh, not by a long shot!
