My husband and I wanted to spend only one night in a B&B on Long Island, and the Golden Pineapple was happy to accomodate. Most B&B's require a 2 night stay; initially we were placed on a waiting list, then we were confirmed a week before to stay in the Bunny room. The Bunny room was beautifully decorated and very clean with a bathroom outside the room which was also clean. It is a little inconvenient to go outside the room for the bathroom but it didn't bother us too much. The Queen bed was firm and comfortable. The common room had a tv, some cookies as well as menus for local restaurants. Jennifer made some great suggestions for dinner, and the B&B is conveniently located to the downtown area, about a 15 minute walk which is great since parking in Port Jeff is a bit of a nightmare. Breakfast was served outside on the deck by Tom and consisted of fresh fruit and homemade pancakes, delish!
We agree with the other reviews about the 'antique' cars parked in the parking area. They take away from the beauty of the property. Overall, very clean lodging, friendly accomodating hosts. We would definitely stay again! Maybe next time take advantage of some of the massage services offered by the owner if we have more time.
