Where exactly is the guesthouse located?
Harborwoods Guesthouse is set back 350 feet from the road at 1702 Sag Harbor Turnpike in Sag Harbor, NY. For driving directions, visit our Directions page or use our Map service.

What is the easiest way to get to Sag Harbor from New York City?
Sag Harbor is easily accessible from New York City via bus service - the Hampton Jitney(www.hamptonjitney.com) departs regularly from mid-town NYC and also offers an airport connection from either JFK / La Guardia or Islip / MacArthur Airport.
Train service via the Long Island Railroad comes to Bridgehampton, approximately 6 miles from the guesthouse. (A cab is necessary to get from the train station to the guesthouse.)
Driving distance from NYC is roughly 100 miles, and takes approximately 2 hours depending on the traffic. (Please note that traffic in the summertime and on Friday and Sunday afternoons/evenings can add significantly to this number.) For driving directions, please visit our Directions page.

What is next door to the guesthouse?
As our property is a “flag lot” we do not front on any road except for the driveway that leads you back 350 feet to the guesthouse. The entrance to the house faces into the woods to the east. If you head off in that direction you will find a well-marked trail leading around the Long Pond Greenbelt. Eventually you will find yourself at the pond where there is a bench situated just perfectly at the head of Liginee Creek and a wonderful view of the pond. To the south is the back yard (woods) of our neighbor. To the west is another property that we own and hope to expand into as our business grows. To the north is Bette and Dales organic farm. As you leave for home you may wish to stop at their farm stand to take some of their fresh produce with you!

Is it a busy neighborhood?
Though close to town, the guesthouse is located in a quiet neighborhood, known as the Gateway to Sag Harbor.

How far is the guesthouse from Main Street, or town?
Approximately ¾ of a mile from Main Street, Sag Harbor.

Is it easy to walk?
It is approximately a 10 – 15 minute walk (depending on your walking speed) to Main Street. The walk is very picturesque as you will see many of the old restored whaling Captains' Houses. 

What services are close by?
Sag Harbor is very self-sufficient when it comes to shopping and services.
There are two grocery stores in the center of town Schiavoni’s IGA and Provisions. There is also a pharmacy, classic “5&10” variety store, liquor store, stationers, laundromat, dry cleaners, a post office, an excellent health food store, and several banks, gift shops, bookstores, hair salons, galleries, clothing stores, restaurants and more. There is also a nearby 7-11 convenience store, which is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Where is the nearest beach or swimming?

The nearest swimming is at Long Beach, a bay beach located roughly two miles from the guesthouse, just over the bridge in the North Haven part of Sag Harbor, or at Havens Beach (also known as Tides Beach) off of Bay Street, about 1 mile from the guesthouse.
The nearest ocean beaches are Sagg Main in Sagaponack and Bridgehampton Main Beach. Both are a short 10-minute drive from the cottage.

Three of the guest rooms are set up to accommodate 2 people, maximum.  The cottage has provision for up to 4 people and the Studio 3. 

Is the guesthouse child-friendly?

Is there off-street parking?
Yes, the guesthouse has its own off-street parking.

What is the weather likely to be? 

     January / February: Average temperatures range from 20° – 40° F. We do occasionally (though not frequently) get snow. This is a particularly quiet and peaceful time in the Hamptons.

     March / April: Average temperatures range from 40° – 60° F. This time of year is quite variable – it can be rainy, but it can also be spring-like, with daffodils and other spring flowers in bloom.

     May / June: Average temperatures range from 55° – 75° F, and mostly sunny. This time of year is particularly scenic, with the blossom trees and spring flowers in full bloom.  July / August: Average temperatures range from 75° – 85° F. The temperature is usually ten degrees cooler in Sag Harbor than in New York City, though it can be quite humid at this time of year. This is         peak season in the Hamptons.

     September / October: Average temperatures range from 55° - 70° F. This is a lovely time of year in the Hamptons – less crowds, beautiful light, the ocean water is still warm enough for swimming, the local harvest is at its peak.

     November / December: Average temperatures range from 35° – 55° F. This is a charming time of year in the Hamptons. The fall foliage can be spectacular, and the holiday season is especially picturesque, with the villages and historic homes displaying festive lighting and decorations.

Can we arrange a late check-out or early check-in?
Check-in is anytime after 3:30 PM, and check-out is no later than 11 AM. Due to the high demand and rapid turnover rate, we cannot make exceptions in high season. Late check-outs may occasionally be arranged outside of the summer season, subject to availability.

Where is the nearest airport?
The nearest major airport to the Hamptons is Long Island’s MacArthur Airport, also known as Islip, which is a one-hour drive from the guesthouse. This airport provides good national service via Southwest, US Air, United and other carriers.
The nearest international airport is John F. Kennedy (JFK) International, approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Sag Harbor. La Guardia is approximately 2 hours’ driving time.
All 3 airports are serviced by the Hampton Jitney bus service (www.hamptonjitney.com) and also provide rental car service.
The nearby towns of East Hampton and Westhampton Beach have small local airports for private planes.

What do you serve for breakfast and when?
