If you're looking for a fancy-schmancy perfumed soaps-mint on your pillow Vermont-style B&B, you'll be disappointed. On the other hand, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, safe and very reasonably priced refuge from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, you'll love the Harbor House! And, in the evening, you can relax on the porch and watch the ships coming and going in the harbor (surprisingly, without being bothered by mosquitos). The inkeeper, Molly, is a real gem - friendly, helpful and attentive to the comfort of her guests.
The place IS a little out of the way, but there is a bus-stop a block away (close to a Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, & a Subway subshop) where you can catch a quick ride to the Staten Island Ferry. And, let me tell you, the ferry ride into Manhattan, past the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, is far from being an inconvenience!
