June in Greenport Village



Welcome back! We are thrilled to say those words after a few long months of closing our doors. Now, we are ready to host new and loyal visitors once again at the Inn and can't wait to see you!

June has brought about about many new things already. Not only have we re-opened our guestrooms, but our surrounding community as re-opened as well. Just this week, outdoor dining was added to the options at our favorite dining hot spots in Greenport Village. So, in addition to delicious, gourmet takeout, we can dine in a socially-distant setting outdoors at select restaurants such as Noah's on Front Street and Claudio's on Main Street on the Harbor.

Both have announced their outdoor dining beginning June 10th on Facebook and we are so excited. Claudio's Waterfront calls it 'Dining in Distance.' Perfect! Of course, if your favorite food is still only available for to-go, you can enjoy it picnic style with a view in Mitchell Park.  

In addition to dining, local wineries are opening for outdoor sipping as well. On the North Fork, strawberry season has begun. We look forward to fresh Long Island grown strawberries each year. You can stop at a farm stand to grab yours or pick your own. Click here for northforker's guide to local strawberries.

We know that many of you are eager to have a getaway and wanted you to know that Harbor Knoll, with its expansive grounds, can provide the space you need both inside and outside. Below is a list of amenities included with your stay at Harbor Knoll.

A full, gourmet breakfast
A complimentary glass of wine in the evening
Access to a full, licensed bar
Many private sitting areas including a screened porch, a large solarium and more
Full access to our private beach, gardens and a heated pool* (open 10am - 1pm)
The New York Times and the Suffolk Times, our local paper
On-site private beach
On-site heated pool
Free on-site parking
Walking distance to Greenport Village for our amazing local restaurants

Come and enjoy summer on the North Fork. It has finally arrived!
❤️

A message from the owners of The Inn at Harbor Knoll








 
As we await the official green light for the opening of hospitality accommodations on the North Fork, we are taking steps to ensure your safety as well as ours during this difficult period.  

With a maximum of 10 guests in 5 bedrooms, it is easier for us to manage safety procedures than in some larger establishments.  I know that many of you have been cooped up for far too long and are eager to have a getaway and wanted you to know that Harbor Knoll, with its expansive grounds, can provide the space you need both inside and outside.  

We are spacing our Adirondack chairs on the front lawn overlooking the water in groups of two with plenty of space in between.  Likewise, on the beach, there will be a number of beach chairs.   As usual each room will be equipped with a basket containing beach towels, small water bottles and suntan lotion to enable you to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.  

The first guest space to open will be The Cottage. With its private entrance, private garden area, separate living room, screened porch bedroom with a king size bed and shower as well as a kitchenette, it is possible to stay there without coming into contact with the owners or other guests.  All areas of the house are being disinfected and sanitized on a regular basis. 

We are staggering breakfast so no more than two couples will have breakfast at the same time in the sunroom or on the porch to provide ample spacing.  Breakfast will be set out for each couple, rather than sharing a buffet as before.  Specific check-in times will be arranged for each room and guests will be required to wear masks on arrival and sign a statement indicating that to the best of their knowledge they are not infected with COVID-19 and have not been in contact with someone who has or had the virus.  

For Happy Hour on the porches or outside, we will ensure adequate space for couples and provide individual bottles of wine and snacks.  

There are a number of restaurants in Greenport Village, within easy walking distance that have or are opening up to provide indoor/outdoor dining options.  Several stores and boutiques are also opening up and the Village plans to increase outdoor space for pedestrians.  

The LIRR and the Hampton Jitney are providing transport from New York City for those who do not wish to come by car.  The ferry to and from Shelter Island is operating as well as several boat and bike rentals.  Parks are available nearby for scenic walks in nature. 

So, come and join us for a weekend or longer and give yourself a well-earned vacation!

Peaceful Retreat Found: Stay close to the action, but far enough to find privacy





Happy 2020! We are excited to begin the New Year with specials for you. We have extended our holiday specials through March. Additionally, if you book with us for the summer months by April, you will receive a discount. Be sure to see the details. Click through to our  website to view these specials and check availability to reserve.

When asked what the best thing is about staying at The Inn at Harbor Knoll, there are many amenities and features of this special place that comes to mind. However, one thing stands out above the rest and that's our location. We are close enough to Greenport Village to enjoy the local dining scene, shopping and attractions without a car. You can even take a quick ferry ride to Shelter Island. However, our peaceful Inn provides the tranquility that guests seek to enjoy a restful and relaxing experience on our grounds.

Take a book out to the Adirondack chairs and overlook the water with the cool sea air on your face. Sit on the beach and listen to the waves and watch the ferry boat and other boats in the harbor.  You can sip on tea or wine in the sun room, or take a dip in the pool. Sleep in! Then, when you seek the energy of the Village, simply take a short walk to the hub of activity.

We would like to share a recently posted review from a guest:
"My husband and I just spent two nights in the Harbor Room. We have been to Greenport many times before but never stayed. I am so glad we chose Harbor Knoll. Mrs. Miller is an accommodating, gracious host in her magnificent home. Breakfast was delicious while enjoying the view. The room was beautiful, the bed comfortable and the view of the Harbor was great. We will surely return when the weather is warmer to enjoy sitting in the chairs overlooking the water!"
