Apples, Pumpkins & Wine...Oh, my!


The summer has been beautiful and we know it's hard to think about colorful leaves falling, apple and pumpkin picking and harvest time, but now is the time to plan. There may be temps in the 90s now, but before we know it, we will be breaking out our sweaters.

The North Fork is absolutely gorgeous in September and October. September begins apple picking and grape harvest at the vineyards. It's always a preferred weather season with dry, sunny days and cool breezes coming through the Inn's windows in the evening. October brings pumpkins, colors and fall flavors, along with a nostalgic chill in the air. We love each month for its characteristics and recommend a visit during either of them.

Even now, during a time of caution and social distancing, our local farms and wineries are doing a wonderful job of making provisions for customers. We definitely recommend searching where you would like to go and making advanced reservations! Scroll to see some of the views and highlights from the North Fork, in close proximity to the Inn at Harbor Knoll.

We encourage you to book now while we still have availability for the season. We are open for reservations through November 1, 2020. Book your stay today! 

 Harbor Knoll is located on the waterfront in the Village of Greenport on Long Island's East End on the North Fork. We invite you to experience the beauty of our unique inn, featuring a private, exclusive beach. Enjoy the North Fork region, with plenty of things to do all year long. Tour Long Island Wine Country, visit one of the many local farms; stroll through shops and galleries; or enjoy a restaurant to suit your appetite and style. We hope you will explore more about the Inn at Harbor Knoll on our website and please reach out with any questions.  


Kontokosta's Wine Tasting Room in Greenport is welcoming guests throughout the week by reservation. This place has fantastic views and great wine! 


Pumpkin picking is available at many farm stands and fields across the North Fork. Plan for a day of hiking through the fields, enjoying roasted corn and bringing home pies or other delicious local goods.
