I can't believe they charge extra for the "breakfast" they served. Some toast, yogurt and cereal. The inn keeper was visibly upset when we skipped it the second day, but the bagel place down the block had better variety for half the price! The room was clean and so was the bathroom, the cable was pretty shotty. So it was... More

We booked a room at the last minute and felt the room was ideal for us. First floor was perfect. There are no elevators in the inn and the steps seemed too much trouble to get our suitcases up. Breakfast in the inn was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the inn. Another plus is Old Greenwich. We loved it... More

Our kids (both sets of Grandparents) were having our Grandchild at the Stamford Hospital - Harbor House had 2 rooms available for the Grandparents who wanted to hang around in case our kids needed us. We had a wonderful experience and we would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling through the area. We had great rooms, a welcoming committee, they... More

I stayed here twice. The rooms are spacious and clean. I loved that I could walk ten minutes to the beach and park. The third floor rooms have a lovely view of the area homes and water. The breakfast is simple but I'm not a big breakfast eater.

Stayed for one night in mid October, as a stopover between NYC and New Hampshire. We liked the big old house and huge parlor. We unwound for a bit then drove into town for dinner. When we came back to our room, there was a terrible odor in the air , just in our room - smelling like old socks... More

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy I was happily staying at Cos Cob Inn, but they could not accommodate me for one night. They arranged for me to stay at Harbor House but warned me that it was a luxury hotel and the cost for a single room would be $250.00. I agreed, thinking that I would have a vacation... More

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Very nice staff, lovely walks, nice beach nearby. Breakfast was a big disappointment. We paid 270$ a night and couldn't be more disappointed. Cereals, old toast and cheap gape jelly.

Close to New York City, and if you can beat the traffic, this is a lovely Victorian bed and breakfast near the beach (Long Island Sound) which is a pristine beach. The B and B had wonderful rooms, even without a full length mirror in the room and not enough drinking cups, it's well appointed, clean, and very comfortable -... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my time in Old Greenwich and my stay at the Harbor House Inn. Staff were lovely, welcoming and helpful and the rooms were immaculate and spacious. Beach is nearby, lovely walks, walking distance to train (easy to navigate to various locations - I did a fair amount of commuting to NYC and Greenwich)

A kind of odd product for the area. There were stains on the carpet. Light bulbs were burned out in the hall and the bathroom. Towels, sheets and covers were old. The tops did not fit on the disposable coffee cups for the continental breakfast. Milk was at room temperature and the bananas were brown. The staff I ran into... More
