THE FERRY IS FREE!!!At the Harbor House we'd like to offer you that spot-an alternative to crowds, noise and high prices of Manhattan hotels. Built circa. 1890 on the New York harbor at Penny Beach, Staten Island; the Harbor House Bed & Breakfast provides the best of both worlds. Harbor House is convenient to all major airports and is only a half and hour from the heart of Downtown Manhattan by car or by public transit. Yet despite the close proximity to all the marvels of the city that never sleeps, we are pleased to retain a quiet, relaxing atmosphere of escape where you can enjoy the special kind of laid-back easy living that is inspired in this unspoiled piece of country within the city. We at Harbor House are especially proud of the gentle, friendly atmosphere we provide in a charmingly appointed home. A master's touch is revealed in the details--a little bit elegant and a cheery dose of casual with a warmth, nostalgic not to the past. On arrival, you are greeted with warmth and friendliness and the voice of experience to guide in your exploration of New York City. Complimentary beverages greet you in sun-filled rooms decorated with mixtures of simple furniture that evoke the light-hearted mood of a simpler time.

The Harbor House is a labor of love for the host, Moe. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting NYC (a free ferry ride away).

The Harbor House is a great place to be when visting New York with a great view on NYC Skyline and Varrazano Narrows Bridge. Relax near the water on Staten Island. Good connection to South Manhattan via Bus and Staten Island Ferry. We really enjoyed our stay at Harbor House. Thanks to Moe who is a perfect host.

What a gem: unobstructed panoramic NYC views, located right on the water, clean and well-appointed rooms with plush sheets, towels, etc.; a wonderful host in Moe who even drove us back to the ferry one morning. The location is a 10-minute bus and five-minute walk, combined, from the ferry terminal. We walked all the way, about 25 minutes. Don't miss the Alice Austin historic house across the street. The only less than stellar thing is the modest breakfast selection, just cereal, toast, english muffins and bananas. They could be more varied in food selections. My wife and I used this as a getaway for a day from Manhattan, where we live.

A short walk to the start of the NY Marathon made this a great place to stay before a long running tour of the five boroughs, with the budget-priced Vanderbilt room fine for two to share, plus helpful owners, fantastic views, and the wonderful free "cruises" on the State Island Ferry to and from Manhattan.

Innkeeper very nice. Area and view unbeatable, and a very good value. However, at least the Staten Suite is in bad need of repairs. Not nearly as nice inside, pictures are misleading.

The Harbor House was a perfect choice for my needs. I chose it because of its proximity to the water right across the street. I appreciated the front porch and watching all the activity on the narrows, the NY harbor, and the changing lighting of Manhattan. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations with the owner who is a very gracious host.

We chose the Harbor House for the views and the economy. Our suite was roomy and met our needs well. We enjoyed the ferry rides to Manhattan. We would stay here again.
