Reviewed 19 May 2014

We had a lovely time at the Harbor Knoll. It's a beautiful house, with it's authentic style and historical details. We slept in the Light house room, which had 4 windows looking out over the water and a little harbor. The owners were pleasant people, who both welcomed us very personally (we were welcomed by Mr. Miller at night, the next morning Mrs. Miller made us a delicious breakfast). A recommendation for people who would like to experience leisure from the North Fork of Long Island.

Room Tip: The Light House Room was fantastic, as far as view and decoration are concerned. The bathroom was ok...

We stayed at the Harbor Knoll from Friday to Sunday and had a wonderful experience. The location and view are hard to beat, and the house and property was very charming. We spent the early morning on Saturday down by their private beach on the bay, watching the ferries pass back and forth and enjoying the sun. The Harbor Knoll is a short walk away from the town of Greenport, but I would advise driving and parking in one of the free municipal lots. There is much to do inside the town, and various wineries are just a short drive away.

A B&B experience is definitely not the same as a hotel, and it should not be compared. There were certainly some quirks that you wouldn't normally find in a hotel, but overall we had a great time and would recommend staying at the Harbor Knoll.

Room Tip: The Lighthouse Room was nice, but the bed was somewhat stiff and the bathroom was small for a person...

We have just spent 2 nights at this lovely B&B with a party of 7 adults. It's a stunning property with a beautiful view of the harbour in a peaceful location and is perfectly located for a short walk to the high street, train station and ferry. Would recommend a visit to Noah's restaurant serving excellent food, especially small plates and a raw bar. You can catch a ferry at the harbour for a 10 minute trip to Shelter Island which is worth a visit for a pleasant walk and lunch in Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant. All the bedrooms at Harbor Knoll have recently been decorated to a high standard and have WiFi and TV with a good selection of channels. The owner looked after us very well. We look forward to visiting Greenport again and staying at this delightful B&B.

We spent 2 nights at Harbor Knoll!
If one does not mind dragging the luggage up and of course down narrow and steep stairs, a very mediocre breakfast, having a closet in the hall as a bathroom and trying to maneuver oneself into the shower tub that is sandwiched between the sink and toilet, being chased out by the house cleaner 45 minutes before our departure time. Then this B&B at $300 per night is for you!!

We had our wedding here in August. We wanted a small ,family only beach front wedding and this b and b was the perfect setting for eight of us. We stayed in the cottage which was homey and just what we wanted and the family stayed in three rooms in the main house and we were the only guests. It was expensive compared to others but decided to splurge for the beauty of the home and the ksetting. We were married on the beach by the Mayor of green port which can be arranged and used all local providers for photos, flowers, cake and our reception and dinner provided by Harbor Knoll. The owner will work with you to provide what you want if possible. We would definitely recommend this if you are looking for this type of small wedding.

My wife and I spoent two delightful nights at this B and B right on the seashore in Greenport. The owner, Leureen Miller looked after us, providing an excellent breakfast in the room overlooking the harbor. Room was very comfotable with air conditioning, tv, etc., and very quiet and peacful. Town of Greenport is just a short walk away from the B and B. Highly recommended!

My husband & I spent 2 nights at the Harbor Knoll B&B and had a wonderful time. The location is great. A short walk to downtown Greenport's bars, shops, restaurants, train and ferry. You definitely don't need to worry about driving to dinner as there are many nice restaurants to choose from nearby. The B&B itself is lovely. A very pretty breakfast room right on the water and lots of windows. Breakfast was plentiful. Many food and beverage options which were all delicious. The innkeeper is very pleasant and interesting to talk to. We stayed in the Lighthouse room which I recommend. We had a private bathroom inside of our room (other rooms at the B&B share a bathroom) and a room facing the harbor. Very nice view. The room is fairly small, but we weren't in our room much so that was fine. The grounds of the home are also lovely. Outside of the breakfast room & porch is a pretty yard with chairs so you can sit and enjoy the view. There is also a private sandy beach area with a few chairs and a dock. The beach is pretty narrow, but you would be the only ones there. You can definitely jump off the end of the dock and go for a swim. We did! The only cons I would say are the price which was pretty high (at least during prime summer) and the 7pm check in time (which may be standard for B&Bs, as I don't frequent them often, not sure). We were delayed on our trip in and didn't arrive until 9pm. We did call ahead to let the B&B know we were late, but definitely felt very bad about it. The Innkeeper stayed until our arrival to check us in. Overall, if you are looking for some r&r in the summer, I would recommend Greenport & Harbor Knoll!
