“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The Fordham House was the perfect choice for a B&B in Greenport. Halina, who runs the inn, was absolutely amazing. The breakfast was to die for, and the rooms are very luxurious. Everything is impeccable - from the style to cleanliness to overall experience, my husband and I literally were over the moon happy with our experience. The bed and linens were the best i have ever experienced, and the location was perfect. We rode bikes to town, ate wonderful food, went on a fishing charter, and visited the vineyards. We are already planning another trip back in the Fall and will stay with Halina at the Fordham House again - no question about it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

As avid B&B travelers, this ranks at the top. The house is wonderfully charming, impeccably decorated, and in a great location for exploring Greenport. Helina really knows her stuff, and makes a delicious breakfast spread. We are already looking forward to booking a second visit in the Fall - I highly recommend!

This is a wonderful B&B run by an amazing lady who applies attention to detail which is second to none! From the rooms which are meticulously and beautifully laid out, to the breakfast which is freshly made from delicious local fare and the cleanliness of the property which is impeccable. Halina is a lovely lady with an abundance of tips of things to do it the local area and places to visit, including local restaurants, vineyards, villages, best places to buy local fruit and veg and even her favorite little street in the area... I wholeheartedly recommend staying here, and I can't wait to go back again.

The Fordham House is a great new addition to Greenport. Historic, luxurious and welcoming. The rooms are all spacious and beautifully appointed. We especially love the 1500 thread count sheets. If it weren’t for the great breakfast served along with all of the fun things to do on the Fork you may never want to get out of bed. Halina is a warm, knowledgeable host who, along with her inn, will make your stay a memorable one.

Room Tip: Ask for the large room with the bathroom that's large enough for a party! Spacious and beautiful...

Fordham House is charming and comfortable. Love the location...close to vineyards, ferry to Shelter Island, great beaches nearby and I can walk into Greenport for dinner. Really takes the stress away from working in the city.

Halina is a great host. She recommend some local beaches and help me plan my wine crawl. Looking forward to another visit.

I’m an active outdoorsy person and my husband is into wine and relaxing. We both had a fantastic weekend because there was something for both of us to enjoy every day. We found the Fordham House a great choice for exploring the northfork. Our room was spacious and very well kept and appointed. I liked that there were not a lot of other guests hanging out, quite, nice for a good night sleep. And Halina knows the area well and was able to point out some great biking routes for me.

Beautiful B&B a short walking distance to the center of Greenport. Close to dock, restaurants, shops, etc. Thoughtful and accommodating host. Delicious breakfast. Perfect place to stay while we toured vineyards and biked onto Shelter Island.
