Very pleasant stay

4.2 on December 11, 2016

I stayed for 1 week in the garden room for a business trip and overall it was a great experience. There was a very pleasant atmosphere and every effort was made to make my stay at the Garden Rose comfortable. Everything was clean, the breakfast was great and it Deirdre and Stephan are great hosts. After my stay I was even taken to the train station to get to the airport, which I really appreciated. I enjoyed my stay and if I will visit Cold Spring Harbor again for a short period of time I will certainly come back! Thomas

The Harbor Rose is a calming and lovely Bed and Breakfast. The owner, Deirdre, is considerate and easy going; she is there if you need her but very respectful of a visitor's privacy. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and plan to stay again. Rita

Alle tiders hvis man vil slappe af -stille og roligt område vældig hyggelig gode spisesteder i nærliggende by ingen morgenmad selv om det står der

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy you were able to have a nice, relaxing, time with us. Our guests love the convenience of so many wonderful places to eat, in such close proximity to The Harbor Rose (87 restaurants within one mile). It is true, we do not serve a full breakfast; however, we serve more of a continental style breakfast of tea, coffee, and fruit. Our organic fruit and beverage bar is available 24/7. We are vegan and most guests want a traditional breakfast. We found the 24/7 organic fruit and beverage bar suited our guests best. We also take orders in advance for muffins and yogurt. We look forward to having you as our guest again in the near future. Think of us as your home away from home!

Pleasant Stay at Cold Spring Harbor

4.8 on June 09, 2013

Deirdre went the extra mile and made me feel at home. She was willing to do whatever I needed to make me feel comfortable, and genuinely cared about making my stay the best it could be. I loved the historic feel of the house, and the always available fruit and tea was a great bonus.

Innkeeper Response
It was a pleasure making The Harbor Rose feel like your home away from home. Our organic fruit and beverage bar is always a hit with our guests. We would love to have you as a guest again when you are in the Cold Spring Harbor / Huntington area again.

A Magic Place

5 on June 06, 2013

I stayed three nights at the garden room and enjoyed every single minute of it. I immediately felt comfortable, well taken care of with an abundance of thoughtful details in every aspect of the house. Extremely comfortable bed with a view into the trees one can hardly dream of. Like staying in the middle of nature which all the comfort of this beautiful and charming house. Thank you, Deirdre. It was a great pleasure.

Innkeeper Response
The Garden Room is a favorite of our nature loving guests. We are happy you enjoyed your three nights as our guest. We would love to have the pleasure of having you as our guest again.

Amezing!

5 on June 06, 2013

The Harbor House was a great place to stay, during my recent trip to the New York City Area, this month For the two weeks on business I' was there. Comfortable, inviting, relax , lay back setting with an unwinding ambiance. "Loved that, Garden Room"... I truly enjoy the amenities it had to offer and the surrounding area' and having to zip" into NYC on numerous days while in Cold Spring Harbor/Huntington Village made my stay that much more enjoyable', with the easy of the quick commute. I will be back in mid-July for a long weekend, so' looking towards it! ... Thanks for the awesome stay! Mr. J. Raphael, Los Angeles California ...

Innkeeper Response
Hi Mr. Raphael. We truly enjoyed having you as our guest and are delighted you enjoyed the Garden Room. People are always amazed at the relaxed and laid-back atmosphere we have here and they can be in the hustle and bustle of New York City in such a short time. We look forward to having you as our guest again in July!

A great place to stay!

4.6 on April 22, 2013

We enjoyed 4 nights at Harbor House in the Garden Room on vacation in early spring. It was very comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Deidre is a wonderful hostess and is there to meet your needs but also respects your privacy. We loved our stay and would stay again. It's a great location - in a small town wooded setting, but a short drive to a train station to get to NYC, and close to many wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed her coffee station and delicious weekend croissants. Not a B&B but we liked it that way - plenty of places to enjoy coffee/breakfast on the way to exploring the area. Highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in the Garden Room. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Many of our guests comment on how comfortable and relaxing an environment is at The Harbor Rose.

Great getaway weekend!

4.2 on March 21, 2013

We stayed in the Parlor Suite and found the room spacious, clean and nicely decorated. It was easy to feel comfortable at the Harbor House, the parlor was cozy and the fireplace helped us warm up. The staff were very pleasant and answered all of our questions to help make our stay more enjoyable. The coffee, fresh fruit and wine table was a nice treat too. We would definitely come back for another getaway weekend!

Innkeeper Response
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in the Parlor Suite and enjoyed the fireplace in the Living room. It is one of the features of the home that many of our guests enjoy. If you would like anything added to our Fruit and Beverage bar, please let us know for your next visit when you make your reservation and we will do our best to fulfill your request.

Lovely B+B

4.8 on March 13, 2013

I loved this B+B for my girls getaway weekend! Highlights of the B+B: the house was beautiful, with wood floors, crackling fireplace, cozy bed, great views, even a piano that we were welcome to use. I felt at home... if my home was a luxurious historical house:) The nearby town of Huntington was also charming. Highlights: the olive oil, vinegar and cheese shop, scrumptious muffins at Wild Flours Bakeshop (also gluten-free!), and the delicious (and inexpensive) salads and spinach pies at the Mediterranean Snack Bar. Deirdre the innkeeper was very gracious, and she even went out of her way to give us a tour of the town after picking us up from the train station. I would recommend either bringing or renting a car because the taxi services of the town were a little bit difficult and pricey (about $15 to go about a mile). I will definitely be recommending Harbor House to friends and family, and I plan to return again (hopefully in the near future!). There is so much more relaxing, eating, and exploring to do! Thank you Deirdre for your kind hospitality and wonderful weekend!!

Innkeeper Response
It is nice to hear you enjoyed your girls’ getaway at The Harbor Rose. We always like to make sure our guests feel it is their home away from home. We look forward to having you as our guest again. As per your recommendation, we are in the process of making special arrangements for guests with Enterprise rental car!

The Victorian Room features a working fireplace. fireplace, and spectacular winter water views, and through the foliage, water views in spring, summer, and fall, luxury Sealy mattress, linens and pillows. The water views are most enjoyable during the evening sunsets. The Bath: This spacious bath features a deep claw-foot soaking tub and shower. The shower is shared by the occupant of the Garden Room, and the Garden Room has a half bath, so only the shower is shared. We have never had a shower conflict, and somehow, magically, the occupants of the Victorian Room and the Garden Room are traveling together, or they are often on such different schedules they rarely see each other. We have daily housekeeping, so the bathroom is always clean and fresh and is tended to twice daily!
