Beautiful and Clean but beware of issues
Pros: Very clean, very friendly staff, nice balcony, breakfast was good. Cons: Extremely tight parking spots, not enough parking spots had to ask the owners son to move a car so I can park on Saturday, dog freely walks around and jumps on guests not on a leash even when we ask the owner to hold the dog she "calls" the dog and waits for him to come to her which he does not always do, no wifi or TV. Haven't had service since August 3rd and never mentioned it on the website or contacted me by email. False advertising because I paid a lot and these crucial services were not available and they knew of this issue for weeks. I asked for compensation and was offered $20 a night which in my opinion was not nearly enough. On the 2nd night, we asked were services restored they said no but they lent us a Hotspot router that we used our Netflix account on. To set up the router, we had to leave our room for 15min and the owner gave us a glass of champagne for the inconvenience. Too many issues. Overall: Beautiful place, very historic. Would not stay here again because they knew well in advance that these services were not available and did not tell us until check in. By then it was too late for me to cancel and find another place to stay. Also, its not professional to have a dog running around and not mention that on the website either. I ended up hitting my car while backing up into the rock wall of the parking area. Everyone should be aware of these issues BEFORE booking.

Dierdre was a great hostess and was the perfect balance of friendly and respectful of our space. Her house is well situated with Cold Spring Harbor State Park literally in her backyard and a fifteen minute walk from town. She put time and detail into making her space welcoming and comfortable, providing coffee, tea, organic fruit, and wine in the foyer. We had issues with internet on our last night because a large tree had fallen on/near the property but otherwise had no complaints. We highly recommend staying at the Harbor Rose and look forward to coming back, ourselves!

New Years Eve at the Harbor Rose
I went to celebrate New Years Eve at the Oheka Castle in New York. The rooms there were sold out since I planned this trip the last minute. So, I found the Harbor Rose bed and breakfast, a nearby Inn,online. The photos are accurate. I am so glad that I stayed there. A very pleasant New Year's Eve Celebration followed by a New Year's Eve breakfast with a lovely hostess and her guests.
