I grew up in Cold Spring Harbor and return to the area often. Until now there really has not been a nice place to stay. Now there is! Three guest rooms in a well restored old rectory, right on the harbor and a short walk to the village. We had a wonderful four day stay. Highly recommended to anyone who... More

I stayed at The Harbor Rose while visiting and joining a guest/friend who was staying there over the Christmas Holiday. The home is historic, beautiful and comfortable. The owner, Dierdre is truly an amazing caring and wonderful person and I felt very welcome. Her sweet daughter has a lot of charm! I live on the island of Maui and I... More

I stayed in the Garden Room over looking the Cold Spring Harbor. Wonderful views. Very comfortable room. Deidre is a very accommodating owner and very friendly. The Inn is close to many Shops and Restaurants in the area.

A wonderful respite during a stressful day on Long Island. Beautifully decorated, and no one like the warm and welcoming innkeepers (Deidre and Zara). Great bed in the Victorian Room, and comfort abounds throughout the house. Fresh organic fruit, drinks, and water always available. Lovely porches to enjoy the views. Great views of the harbor, and a view of the... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Harbor Rose for a week, while traveling cross country. The Harbor Rose was a beautiful, quaint place to stay. The home was lovely and so was the owner and her daughter. She suggested a lot of great places to eat at and go see. If you are looking for a beautiful historic place... More

Our stay at the Harbor Rose was extremely enjoyable. Deidre, the proprietor, is very cooperative and helped us with our various needs within the house and regarding the local sites. Everything was very comfortable (bathroom, shower, use of items from her kitchen) and the snack-food items that she provides are wonderful (organic fruits, large choice of hot drinks (coffees, teas,...

I was on a trip to LI that combined business and pleasure. I booked the Harbor Rose thru AirBnB. The house is a charming 19th c house, within walking distance of town.

The owner was really sweet and obviously cares about people, but that doesn't always translate to an ideal experience. The positive first--it's a great historic house with a nice patio area, it's small and quaint and near downtown Cold Spring Harbor. It is not a bed and breakfast, but we knew that. She puts out wine and was very sweet... More
