“Drive east from New York City, and just before you hit the Peconic River, you’ll face a choice: north or south? Option B takes you to the Hamptons, that enviable address where summer dreams of rosé and lawn parties are lived out weekend after weekend. But lately, the road toward the agricultural haven known literally as the North Fork is attracting more and more devoted travelers… For the most quintessential North Fork vacation, book a B&B—preferably the Harvest Inn. It operates like an intimate boutique hotel, with five rooms and attentive owners serving exquisite multicourse breakfasts on the porch.”
“Situated east of New York City, Long Island is a densely populated island that is home to suburban towns, Atlantic coast beaches, farms and vineyards as well as quaint downtown areas. Even though most of Long Island is home to residential towns, at the East End of the island is a peaceful and stunning area called North Fork. There are so many great things to do in North Fork, Long Island from visiting wineries to enjoying the beach!
Known as Long Island’s Wine Country, there are over 60 vineyards, breweries and distilleries in North Fork, Long Island that use locally grown ingredients. This area also has a lot of great restaurants that feature local staples such as oysters and Peconic Bay Scallops.”
“You guys…why have I never been to the North Fork of Long Island before??? I lived in Long Island for 4 years during college, but never really ventured out that far east. And when I did it was always to the Hamptons or Montauk (the “south fork” of Long Island). But not going to lie…after spending just over 48 hours on the North Fork, I’m not sure I’ll EVER go back to the Hamptons.
The North Fork is know for it’s 30+ vinyeards, multi-generational family farms and farmstands.”
“For those who know and love the North Fork Long Island, it feels like the best-kept secret. Wineries, farms, small businesses, fields of lavender, beaches on Peconic Bay and the Long Island sound, less congestion than its southern counterpart, the Hamptons; what more could you ask for? After a stay at The Harvest Inn Bed & Breakfast, I ask myself how do I leave this place? The Harvest Inn Bed & Breakfast feels like your home away from home. Making it the perfect spot for your three-day getaway to the North Fork Long Island.”
“Before becoming the new owners of the Harvest Inn Bed and Breakfast, Stacey and Steven Isaacs “dabbled in the North Fork,” as Steven Issac put it. “It seemed like a great spot,” he said. “But life didn’t necessarily give us the chance to take advantage of that.”
As a food and wellness blogger, cookbook author, nutrition coach and chef, Stacey Isaacs was ready to bring comfort to guests, both through the food and the home.”
“The Harvest Inn Bed & Breakfast is located in the heart of wine country in the NoFo, right on the North Fork Wine Trail just a couple of hours from Manhattan, New England, and New Jersey.
This amazingly quaint escape is one of the few luxury bed and breakfasts in this area. The Harvest Inn wants you to have all of the comforts of home. . . and more. Luxuriate in Frette linens and robes that will have you feeling like royalty. Each room is equipped with a smart TV, and you’ll find the food is a rare pleasure.”
Renovations on the Harvest Inn in Peconic are officially complete, roughly one year after new owners Stacey and Steve Isaacs purchased the North Fork property and business. Since moving from Manhattan during the pandemic, they’ve reopened the boutique hotel to great success, and after three decades of marriage, they’re learning just how well they work together.
Before the pandemic, the Isaacs were content Manhattanites, but as the virus raged on, they decided it was time to, at least, keep an eye open for new possibilities.
