  • History

    Arbor View House Bed & Breakfast, marquee

    This house was built early in the 19th century (circa 1820) and was originally in the Federal style. In 1873 it was purchased, added to and renovated in the then current Victorian manner by Captain Vail. This is one of three remaining houses built or renovated by Captains. The captain is buried in the local cemetery.

    Arbor View House is listed by the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities (SPLIA) and is considered to be a fine example of Victorian architecture. It has been lovingly restored and renovated, preserving its artifacts and replacing any that may have been removed. The innkeepers, Veda Daley Joseph and Wilfred Joseph, have done a masterful job of restoring this old house to its former glory. Wilfred, who has renovated several old homes including one other Captain's home in the area, has made this his proudest project yet. The house has been completely updated for the twenty-first century with all the creature comforts needed to make this home truly a work of art but not a museum piece. It is comfortable and elegant.
