It is all about food and wine at the Harvest Inn Bed and Breakfast.
Located in the middle of the North Fork Wine Trail, the Peconic bed and breakfast is home to professional chef Christopher Augusta and his wife Darolyn, who opened the B&B in 2002.
“He originally wanted to open a restaurant and I said no,” she laughed. “We traveled a lot through Europe and stayed at small inns. That’s really the best way to learn about the area where you’re visiting. We love this area and want to share it with our guests.”
It is in that spirit that the couple will often host cooking workshops for guests. The inn also participates in the Wine Camp, a vacation package that gives visitors an opportunity to tour the North Fork’s vineyards while area experts provide the low down on all things wine and includes deals on area restaurants.
“If you go to a hotel, it is anonymous. But I think people that are dreaming of a bed and breakfast stay are social,” she said. “Friends are made here.”
