Harborwoods Guesthouse

1702 Bridgehampton Sag harbor Turnpike , Sag Harbor, NY 11963 USA (Show map)


H A R B O R W O O D S is a distinctive bed and breakfast located in Sag Harbor. Built in 2006, we offer up-to-date accommodations. We are centrally located in the Hamptons, just a few minutes’ drive from Bridgehampton, Southampton and East Hampton, and a short ride through North Haven to the Shelter Island Ferry. Our proprietor, Barbro Magnusson, was born and raised in Sweden and brings old-world charm and style to every aspect of our B&B. Every morning we serve a full breakfast: on the porch in the summer and in our central dinning area in the cooler months. We offer fresh scones, multi-grain breads, bagels, fresh fruit, yogurt, and granola, along with a great selection of jams and spreads. We also prepare a daily specialty such as Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and vanilla cream, gravadlax (cured salmon) with capers and a special mustard/dill sauce, or gourmet eggs and omelets. For a hot morning beverage you can select from a variety of loose teas and coffees, including espresso and cappuccino.

My parents could not have been happier !

5 on July 12, 2013

My house was full of guests and I needed to find a comfortable place for my parents to stay. I selected Harborwood Guesthouse and they could not have been happier. Every aspect of their stay was perfect, My father found the beautiful gardens and outside porch a relaxing place to read his paper and to rest after a long day of activities. They could not say enough kind words about Barbro & Dean the owners and proprietors. Barbro & Dean treated them so well they may prefer Harborwoods over my home on their next visit. Barbro and her boys make a much better breakfast then I do.

Modern, Rustic Charm

5 on January 28, 2013

Harborwoods Guesthouse is definitely one of the most beautiful, serene places that I have experienced. The decor is a combination of modern and rustic, and the cottage where my partner and I stayed was filled with light. I was happy to wake up every morning. Barbro and Dean are also the most delightful and down-to-earth hosts. In the dead of winter, when guests are few and far between, the owners welcomed and serviced us without skipping a beat. They were hospitable, gracious, and funny. The main house is as beautiful as the pictures convey, and Barbro's Swedish pancakes and french toast, served in front of a warm fire daily, were to die for. Before I left, I was already snapping pictures and recommending the place to my friends via text and email. I will always be a patron here. Worth every cent.

Best Place to Stay in Sag Harbor, NY

5 on August 04, 2012

I truly enjoyed my weekend stay at Harborwoods. It was very peaceful and relaxing, yet also conveniently located only a few miles away from the town and marina of Sag Harbor. The breakfast each morning was absolutely delicious - Barbro is an excellent cook! This was such a great experience, it was like staying with family.

A Lovely Anniversary

5 on November 16, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10-yr-anniversary stay at Harborwoods Guesthouse. The inn is modern, clean and absolutely beautiful. Barbro and Dean were perfect hosts and the breakfasts were incredible. We highly recommend the inn and would very happily return.

Absolutely Delightful

5 on July 26, 2011

In late June we drove from NYC mid-week to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We stayed for one night and it was absolutely delightful! Barbro and Dean are the perfect gracious hosts, the room was super clean and cozy, the surrounding garden is beautiful and peaceful and Sag Harbor is charming. There is always anxiety/risk involved in choosing a place for good night sleep. This is as good as it gets! ps. The Swedish pancakes for breakfast, highly recommend them. Best J&H

Good Fortune

5 on October 16, 2010

Good fortune brought us to Barbro Magnusson and Dean Golden. I mention their names before mentioning Sagharbor because I think that wherever they would have decided to be, we would have been happy to go. It’s a little like going to an excellent restaurant and feeling that the cook loves doing what he or she does, there’s love in the food, beauty and class all at once. Upon arrival you feel welcome right away, almost like coming home after a long trip or job abroad, and at the same time respected and left to your intimacy all at once. It may sound like I’m exaggerating, but when you wake up the next morning, you don’t know whether you will be served fresh Swedish pancakes at the fireplace in case it’s a little bit chilly, or scrambled eggs and choices of yoghurt and fruit on the balcony or in the garden… If you don’t love generosity, you won’t love Harbowoods. I highly recommend a weekend, a week, or, I wish, a month. And if you don’t know Saghabor, Barbro Magnusson will give you all the best indications. Thank you Barbro and Dean, Love Annika an Annabel from Paris, France

What a Find!

4.8 on July 31, 2010

We absolutely loved our stay with Barbro and Dean at The Harborwoods Guesthouse. The house was impeccably clean and comfortable and the hosts were as gracious as could be. We were treated like family from the moment we arrived. Breakfasts were delicious and unique and served on a beautiful patio outdoors surrounded by flowers and trees. A bit off the beaten path, we enjoyed staying here because it was peaceful and not pretentious. We look forward to going back and spending another relaxing weekend with these wonderful people!

Great getaway in Sag Harbor, NY

5 on July 13, 2010

My husband and I were looking for a nice place for a quick getaway the weekend before Memorial Day in May of 2010. I came across Harborwoods and saw some really good reviews. The off season prices were excellent and I made a reservation. Upon arrival, we were more than presently surprised by the home and Barbro and Dean. The space was fabulous and they have done an excellent job of creating a guesthouse that is welcoming and relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was not only delicious but Barbro and Dean were present and provided great conversation, striking the balance between hospitality and giving us space to just enjoy the sights and sounds of the morning. I highly recommend Harborwoods and hope to come back in the near future.

outstanding experience

Very nice! My wife and I were in Sag Harbor this weekend for a wedding and found this jewel. The b&b is very clean, well located, and quiet. Barbro, who owns the b&b with her husband Dean, is an excellent cook who prepares a fantastic breakfast every morning.

Super place and people!

4.6 on June 14, 2010

We spent two nights at Harborwoods - it was wonderful! Ditto to all the other excellent reviews - this is a very special place. Barbro and Dean are marvelous hosts - so hospitable, and so available - it was a pleasure to get to know them in the time we were there, and Barbro and I shared a special Swedish connection - she is from the city where my father grew up! The house, designed and built by Dean, is superb - all kinds of lovely details, and as you can see from the photos, full of light, natural, candlelight and firelight. When you come down in the morning to the "great room" the fire is lit, and various candles are scattered around, including little votives on the table - a veritable fairyland. And Barbro's Swedish pancakes live up to the praise offered in other reviews. All in all, a memorable place, with warm and caring hosts - the best! From Karin and Bob in Maine
