My husband and I first stayed at the Harvest Inn during the Fall of 2009 as an anniversary trip to LI Wine Country. We had such a lovely experience, we've recommended it to all olf our friends, and just returned for another visit this August.
The location is ideal - walking distance to many of the vineyards, and a 15 min or less drive to any of the area 'attractions'. The Inn itself is in perfect condition - you can tell that the owners love this place and really maintain it. Downstairs is a full porch with lots of comfy seating - perfect for sitting outside at night and enjoying a bottle of local wine. We loved the decor and feel of the place so much, we asked Darolyn for the exact number/shade of the living room paint color and painted our kitchen the same!
Breakfast is served each morning in the dining room, and each day that we were there different china/linens/etc. were used. Chris prepares an amazingly delicious breakfast. I usually don't eat breakfast, but I've cleaned my plate every time I've visited! Upstairs you'll find all of the rooms, and a shared mini fridge stocked with bottled water. Both rooms we've stayed in were super charming, very relaxing. At home I don't use a pillow to sleep on because I can never find one comfortable enough. But during my last visit at the Inn I fell in love with the pillow in my room. It was absolute perfection.
We love that there isn't a tv in the rooms, but there is a CD player, some CDs, a number of books and magazines, etc. My husband recognized the soaps and bathroom items to be from Italy- there is no detail overlooked.
Darolyn and Chris, who are the owners/innkeepers, are really warm and friendly. Upon arrival Darolyn will welcome you and provide you with some area maps, will let you know if there are any events while you're in town (like live music, or farm festivals,etc), and will also recommend some of their favorite vineyards/restaurants to visit. Upon making my reservation, she emailed me a list of suggested restaurants in the area, and even offered to assist with making reservations.
I simply can't say enough positive things about The Harvest Inn. I am an avid traveller, very often taking 5-6 vacations each year. And my experience at the Harvest Inn ranks among my top 5!
