My wife and I returned for another one-night getaway (from Manhattan) and we had another wonderful stay in the top-floor room with a panoramic view of NYC, Verazzano Bridge, etc. The B and B is not fancy, but it's clean, comfortable, well appointed, Moe, the proprietor, is awesome, and the location ism I like to say on the New York...

While it isn't your typical five star property, it is definitely a five star experience. This was our 4th stay at the Harbor House and our first choice of a place to stay in NYC. The journey to and from Battery Park passed the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and Governor's Island on the Staten Island Ferry when you're headed... More

This is an old home situated on a corner directly across the street from busy NY Harbor with great views of lower Manhattan and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Maybe a 6-minute drive from the Staten Island Ferry, straight down Bay Street. We had a third-floor walk-up room facing the water. Private bath was sink-in-the-room and a separate bath with tub/shower and... More

For what we paid, the B&B was very good.... no issues with anything and we had 2 rooms. As per many other Reviewers, Moe was fantastic. We stayed six nights, and everything, incl the transport to/from Manhatten was no problem at all... really enjoyed the ferry. :)

Right on the river with great view of Manhattan and the Verrazano Bridge Harbor House is an older, homey spot; the room was clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about Moe who is a helpful, friendly gentleman who went out of his way to see that our visit went well. It is close to the ferry and Bagel's by... More

Originally started to be a good value but the man said I needed bigger room for 2 adults and 2 children. Charged me 430.00 on internet it says 139.00 per day I didn't really look until I was so dissatisfied. The house is an older house with wood floors the minute I walked in the house you could feel it... More

We specifically prefer to stay away from the expensive accomodations in Manhattan and use the saved money for shows and dining, etc. On previous trips we stayed in Connecticut and took the Metro North train into the city, but this time we wanted to cut down commute time but still avoid the high prices in Manhattan. We researched Brooklyn, Queens,... More

To get to this place you must take a ferry and a bus,as this place is on the opposite end of Staten Island, from the Ferry Terminal on Staten Island you have to really travel to get there. In the evening the ferry and the buses run infrequently so unless you plan on retiring early every evening, this place is... More

The Harbor House is a beautiful property with an excellent view of the NYC Skyline. The neighborhood is charming and safe. Our room was clean and comfortable. Their is easy access to the Staten Island Ferry. Moe does a great job of looking after his guests. If we visit NYC again we have no interest staying anywhere else.
