Harbor Knoll Bed and Breakfast

424 Fourth Street , Greenport, NY 11944 USA (Show map)


Built around 1870, Harbor Knoll is a gracious water front country home. Built in the Dutch colonial style. It was originally built as a summer home for a wealthy southern family. Since then it has been the Millers summer home for 30 years and previous owner included a former mayor of Greenport and of a niece of General Custer. The houses sense of ease and luxury plus the fantastic water front views contribute to wonderful relaxing environment. Situated on Greenport’s splendid harbor the house is reached by a private road. Located on over an acre of gracious gardens it is beautifully landscaped and includes a Victorian herb garden. Watch the boats sail by from an Adirondack chair on the lawn, relax on a chaise on the beach or stroll down private dock all combined to ensuring a sense of being transported to a different environment. When you can tear yourself away from the property walk into the charming village of Greenport or visit one of the more than 25 local vineyards

Wonderful Weekend

Everything about our visit to Harbor Knoll Bed and Breakfast was special. The Harbor room is beautifully decorated and has a king size bed. Our morning breakfast was delicious, well prepared and well served. Our hostess, Mrs. Miller was charming and very easy to talk with. The wineries we wanted to visit were conveniently located. Our mini vacation on Long Islands Northfork was special.

not worth the room rate

1.0 on January 02, 2011

we were four couples for new years eve. the rooms are ok but the bedding was old and not fresh looking. the hospitality was minimal and the owner was more concerned about shutting lights and tv's while we were sitting and talking. she even gave instructions to lock up and lower the thermostat like we were working for her. the breakfast was a single plate with no choices and no seconds even if you wanted it. one piece of white bread toast on a plate, grape jelly in a dish. when we asked for ice it seemed to be an issue rather than just let me get it for you. we were promised champagne for a toast, instead we were told where we could go to buy some. overall a disappointing experience. the location is beautiful but not what you would expect from the B&B experience i am used to as a frequent and great fan of B&B's here and abroad.

Habor Knoll is a delight!

What a location! We spent one delightful night at Habor Knoll over labor day... you could not ask for a better location, an easy walk from Greenport and all of their great restaurants. We sat on the huge chairs overlooking the harbor and watched the boats go by, we enjoyed wine and cheese (compliments of the friendly owners) in the evening, and we slept through breakfast (but others at the Inn raved). This B&B has a perfect balance of being welcoming (friendly conversation over cocktails on the porch) and letting you just hang out alone by the water to enjoy your vacation without having to meet new people. We can't wait to go back!! Final note-- the 3rd floor rooms have pretty low ceilings, but we're very tall and could still stand up. Next time we'll plan further ahead and try to get one with a harbor view.
