“Lovely Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2008

We needed a quick break from home repairs and did not want to travel too far from our Long Island home. Stirling House in Greenport was the perfect getaway. Clay greated us warmly, and we were thrilled with our waterview room. Breakfast was a treat, absolutely delicious. Clay was helpful with dining suggestions. It was only one night, but we felt pampered and refreshed. We recommend it to other "island" folk as a quick and relaxing timeout from the daily grind. Many thanks!

The Stirling House B&B is a wonderful place to stay in Greenport. We stopped in the French Suite and the room was great; spotlessly clean and elegantly decorated.

Clay was an excellent host with lots of local knowledge and recommendations for trips and restaurants in the area and on top of that served delicious home cooked breakfasts in the morning.

The B&B is only 5 mins walk from the heart of Greenport, at the end of a quiet road in a beautiful spot by the water; if the weather is good you can eat out on the porch overlooking the bay.

All in all, our stay at the Stirling House was perfect. If you're looking for somewhere to stay on the North Fork, check with The Stirling House first; you won't regret it!

I can't say enough about this beautiful B&B. The moment you arrive you feel as if you are home. Each room is beautifully furnished with loving care to detail. And the breakfasts! They are a gourmet's delight. Clay is a wonderful host. I can't wait to go back again.

I'm back at work now after a too short weekend at the Stirling House. I close my eyes and I'm back on the front porch of the Stirling House looking at the most beautiful shimmering water and tranquiity you can find. Tomorrow I'm going to try to click my heels together...."there's no place like the Stirling House...There's no place like the Stirling House......."

  • Liked — The bed was most comfortable
  • Disliked — In the winter or if its raining you are pretty much confined to your own room. There is a very small common area inside

My sister and I planned a girls vacation to Long Island and started our week by staying at the Stirling House. Our host, Clay, was very hospitable along with being a great chef when it came to our breakfasts. The short walk into town was very convenient as we made several trips. It was our favorite place to stay in Long Island.

We're just back from our first stay at the Stirling House. It was one of the most relaxing trips we've had in quite a while, and our first visit to the North Fork. Between the vineyards, the great restaurants, the local shops, the waterfront activities, and perhaps most importantly, the creature comforts at the Stirling House, we couldn't have asked for a better mid week get-away. Also, hats off to Chef Clay ! Our breakfasts were delicious, (served on the front porch) and enhanced by the magnificent water views. The Stirling House offers all the amenites you look for in a top notch B&B: a beautiful location, great accommodations, and personalized service providing straightforward, accurate and insightful information on all the local attractions......overall, two thumbs up for a job well done.

Great place, great vibe, excellent breakfast on porch overlooking harbor. Few blocks from downtown so location is also great. Couldn't have been better.-Marc
