Such a wonderful first visit to a bed and breakfast! Deirdre is wonderful — very attentive and hospitable. Yet she allows guests to use the common areas as they would like. Very clean and follows covid 19 protocols. Hiking trail is accessible from The Harbor Rose grounds. The Harbor Rose does not disappoint!!

While the place itself is charming and we got a lovely welcome. Check out is 11am which is a bit early considering how much the room cost! Also for a price tag of $350+ I just find it unacceptable to have breakfast sitting in the room in a paper bag! Consisting of a banana, nectarine a juice can and a cup of oatmeal!! We would of had nearly two nights in a hotel with proper breakfasts for that price!!! I won’t be returning based on cost!

We regret you did not feel you got the value you were seeking. If your travel dates are flexible keep in mind the same room off season is half the price. Sunday & Mondays are always a better value no matter what the season. And booking directly with the property rather then 3rd party travel sites is always a better value. Properties pays high commissions to these sites. We at this time during the COVID-19 pandemic are unable to provide our organic cooked to order breakfast. However the breakfast to go offers organic fresh fruit and oatmeal, juice and a breakfast bar. Nespresso and assorted teas & coffee's are available 24/7 Here at The Harbor Rose we are serious about the safety of our guests and staff members. We use medical grade UV lights to disinfect the rooms. This disinfecting procedure add 2 hours to the housekeeping process per guest room. Guests are welcomed with all natural hand sanitizer made with essential oils and comfy spa slippers upon arrival. You will also find Pure Alkaline bottled water, his and her soft cotton robes and Egyptian cotton linens. We feature a whole property water purification system perfectly paired with our organic bath amenities. If you value exceptional measures we are a good fit for your travel needs.

I stayed at The Harbor Rose Bed and Breakfast for a few days when my air conditioning was being repaired. I live locally but this little place is a well-kept secret... What an amazingly lovely experience. Every single little detail is charming and perfect. The living room - with a live fireplace- felt like a kitchen for my soul! Grace and Beauty.. so nourishing, from the books to the decor, to the delicate beautiful background music. The room on the tippy top floor was splendid. Spacious and comfortable, exceptionally clean. This is a large room with ample space for floor exercises, and a big desk and two beds- perfect for me , I worked on one and slept on the other! Great views! I can't wait to go back and try the second floor room with the deck outside the door. Deidre was accommodating and hospitable but never overbearing. Like a fairy godmother, she seemed to appear when I needed her, but otherwise it was as if I was in my own home away from home. I highly recommend this lovely retreat.

The Harbor Rose Bed and Breakfast is located on Harbor Rd in the charming village of Cold Spring Harbor. It is a 170 old house superbly maintained/renovated by her superhost Deirdre. We received a full tour upon arrival, were given the choice of 2 different rooms (we chose the Vanderbilt on the main floor with its own separate A/C unit and bathroom in the room) We were greeted with a glass of wine/beer and were given our healthy breakfast bag for the morning (oatmeal, oj, grapes, peach) The room was large enough, well decorated. Double curtains kept the light low and made the morning sleep comfortable. Shower was wonderful, modern with high pressure. The bed was very comfortable, great queen size mattress, thick and supportive. We had the outside patio to ourself for breakfast (each room has his own balcony/patio and there is only 1 guest room per floor) The coffee machine is Nespresso (same as at home) so we were privy to it. Deirdre was present and helping when needed, just the right amount, perfect interaction, and she knows the area restaurants and local attractions well. We didn’t really went into it but she is also some sort of nutrition expert, that might explain the healthy breakfast:) Altogether a great experience for highly seasoned travelers like us. Recommended without hesitation.

It was so lovely to host you. Thank you so much for your delightful review. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. For clarification we have 3 outdoor sitting areas one assigned to each guest room. The Victorian Room is the only room with a private balcony on the 2nd floor. And breakfast is always includes fresh seasonal fruit. We also have 2 guest rooms with working fireplaces and have java logs available. Java Logs are made from recycled coffee grinds and are non toxic and burn for 4 hours. Perfect for a winter getaway. Our historic home is peaceful tranquility in all seasons.

Had event at The Paramount in Huntington and this was less than 3, easy, miles away. Even though it is on the road and we were in a room facing the road it was very quiet. Would love to come back and spend more than one night.
