First things first, we are happy to offer private, off-street parking for our guests.
Our grounds include over an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens and lawn.
The English flower and herb gardens provide the perfect touch of beauty and tranquility to this seaside experience. Doze in the shade of trees over one hundred years old. Or bask in the sun on a lounge chair on the beach. Wherever you are on the grounds, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the sparking bay.
We spent three days and two nights during April at Harbor Knoll, which offers the best features of a well-managed B&B, including quiet, well-kept rooms with window views of the harbor, bay, and Shelter Island, a generous daily breakfast in a lovely sunroom with similar views, and thoughtful management by the Miller family, who have just the right touch in this Victorian-era house which has been their home for some 40 years, and which they have opened to guests for the past 10 or so. Our stay felt as if we were special guests of a good friend in a very special bayside home. It is a home filled with interesting books, authentic period furnishings, and a special charm combining modern conveniences with 19th-century style gentility, all together with marvelously manicured grounds around a well-kept house. Of course, Greenport is itself an interesting town with an interesting history. It was a perfect spot from which to explore the astounding growth of winemaking and vineyards all along the North Fork of Long Island.
