Arbor View House was truly a great find. The warm and welcoming owners' make this a special place. Veda and Wilfred are amazing hosts. They provide an atmosphere where guests feel part of a special family! They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. A great place to stay after a long day of visiting the Wineries on the North Fork! The rooms were beautifully decorated and inviting. Breakfast was over the top! Best breakfast we ever had at a B & B. Thank you Veda and Wilfred Doreen and Alan Hollander


Like Staying With Family

5 on July 25, 2017

Let's start off with the basics: the house is beautiful, the food is delicious, price is reasonable, and the place is conveniently close to everything you'd need around Greenport. That alone is 4/5 stars. The final criteria is a bit more subjective, and will depend on what you are looking for on your trip. Wilfred and Vera are gracious hosts, going above and beyond for their guests - but the vibe is like they are relatives you are staying with. There is an expectation on your end to hang around for conversation, and breakfast is a real social event. This can feel a bit like pressure if you're just looking for a beautiful place to stay in but don't want to feel "bothered." Personally, I found it to make the experience more special - especially looking back. Most people have become anti-social today, and avoid talking to new people unless they absolutely have to. I have a similar impulse, but trips are made richer by the people you meet - and this was no exception. Unlike most B&Bs I have no doubt I'll remember Wilfred and Vera (and the other guests) for years to come.


A Decade of Great Memories

5 on April 02, 2017

The Arbor View House is a remarkable Bed & Breakfast on the North Fork Wine Trail of Long Island. We have been coming here for ten years and never been disappointed. Your hosts Wilfred and Veda Joseph are the most gracious people you want to meet and you will be friends by the time you leave. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and can direct you to the best restaurants, vineyards, & events on the North Fork. The house and rooms are tastefully decorated with vintage furnishings, fireplaces, and are immaculately clean. In this quaint setting you also have the modern comforts of comfortable bedding; Jacuzzi bathtubs; luxurious linens, towels, & bathroom amenities; cable TV; and free internet Wi-Fi. There are even fresh flowers in your room. Every detail is planned to please the eye and provide comfort to the body. Breakfast is an unforgettable experience and the heart of this home. This is not your standard American eggs & bacon breakfast. Veda is a master of the culinary arts and her dishes really excite the palate with an international variety of tastes. Everything is fresh & homemade – fresh fruit salad, delicious baked goods, international salad, spicy corned beef hash (our favorite), vegetarian dishes, and of course eggs. She will accommodate your dietary needs. Just make them known with your reservation. The true magic occurs around the breakfast table. Yours hosts have this amazing ability to bring you and the other guests together in relaxed conversation where you enter as strangers and come out well acquainted and happy to have met them. The truth in this is most evident when at the end of your stay many guests are reluctant to get up from the table and go home. From the tea and goodies when you check in to the last bite of breakfast before going home you are treated with the warmth given to good friends. What turned out a decade ago as a random pick, became 12+ visits later, a long lasting friendship.


Wine Getaway Weekend

4.8 on September 02, 2016

We experienced genuine hospitality from the innkeepers. Exceptionall clean rooms, delicious breakfast


Wonderful Anniversary!

5 on August 11, 2016

We spent a few nights in the Zinfandel room to celebrate our Anniversary. Arbor View House is a beautiful old Victorian that is very well kept by Wilfred and Veda. They welcomed us into their home and made us feel comfortable from the moment we walked in! Veda is an exceptional cook and breakfast out on the deck with the other guests was a great way to start the day. Wilfred was very helpful recommending local restaurants, attractions and wineries. Everything was close by and easily accessible. The beds are so comfortable, best sleep in ages! We didn't want to leave and will surely be back!


Delightful Hosts!!

5 on August 09, 2016

We stayed in the Zinfandel room for a few nights in November for a min-honeymoon and had the best time!! Wilfred and Veda are jovial, welcoming, fun, and so full of stories that will entertain you as you relax right in. Veda's cooking is amazing!! SO unique and delicious. They helped us make the most of our stay regarding places to go, travel etc. Highly recommended!!!


Amazing weekend!!!

Highly recommended! Our hosts wilfred and Veda were wonderful! Their home and grounds are beautiful! Veda made amazing breakfasts too! We can't wait to go back! The wineries, Greenport and orient point are all close by. Great way to spend a relaxing weekend!


Very Happy

Had a wonderful and relaxing time. Veda and Wilfred are wonderful hosts. We had never stayed at a B&B before but we would certainly do it again with these folks as our hosts. Would highly recommend. Great coffee and breakfast in the morning.


great find in northfork!

4.8 on August 27, 2015

stayed at Arbor View 8/23-8/26. What a pleasant experience. Innkeepers Wilfred and Veda are great hosts. Very warm and welcoming. Each day starts with coffee at 8am but the highlight is the breakfast which usually gets going around 9:30am. This is not your bagel and cream cheese breakfast. I'm talking scrambled eggs, mushroom and spinach omelets, turkey sausage, freshly baked biscuits, french toast casserole, fried plantain, avocado, tomato and cucumber salad, etc. The innkeepers sit down with you and the other guests and we all eat together and have great conversation. This is something very special that I have not experienced before at other B&Bs. The grounds are beautiful. Plenty of space to relax and read a book or meditate etc. Arbor View is in East Marion but it's just a 5 minute drive to downtown Greenport and about 20 minutes from Orient State Park and Beach making this a prime location. Innkeepers are very knowledgeable about the local vineyards and the restaurant scene. The rooms are quaint, with a warm feel. This is the place to be. Will definitely be returning!!!


A Great Stay in the North Fork of Long Island, NY

5 on August 18, 2015

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Arbor View House B&B in East Marion, NY. What a treat! Our hosts, Veda and Wilfred, could not have been nicer and their concern with making our stay perfect was evident from the moment we entered their B&B. My wife and I have certain dietary preferences which we explained to Wilfred during our registration. We had some good laughs over what we did and did not eat, and he made sure that our breakfasts, really brunches, were catered to our likes. Veda prepared the most delicious brunches every morning. We went away from the table happily satisfied with enough served and eaten to keep us from wanting lunch! We stayed in their Zinfandel room that has a very comfortable king size bed situated on a four-poster frame. The bathroom in our room was very modern and always clean. The common and dining rooms in the B&B are very attractive with a good deal of vintage and antique furniture along with interesting rugs and other furnishings. The North Fork is truly a hidden gem of a vacation spot and Wilfred was quick with recommendations of great restaurants, vineyards, beaches and other places of interest. He and Veda have been in business for 16 years and have an insider's understanding of the best places to visit. Carol and I will definitely stay at the Arbor View when we visit the North Fork again. You will be as happy as we were if you choose to stay there too.
