Just spent a lovely couple of days at Stirling House B&B. We didn't know the areas so I let the Trip Advisor reviews guide my choice of where to stay. Our gracious host Clay and his comfortable, cozy B&B did not disappoint. The house is on a quiet side street overlooking the water but just a short walk from restaurants... More

We visited Greenport again and again we stayed at the Stirling house. The innkeeper had to go to the hospital for kidney stones and you might expect a train wreck. NO WAY. Cheryl did a great job and the staff pretty much fell over themselves apologizing and giving us a nice gift certificate. Cheryl is awesome, Clay the regular host/innkeeper... More

Clay at the Stirling House B&B made our weekend in Greenport so special. Staying at the Stirling House was so relaxing -- it felt like home!

I can't say enough good things about Clay and Stirling House! He was extremely helpful in suggesting wineries to visit (which was the main reason for our visit), and his breakfasts and cookies are out of this world!

Just spent two wonderful nights at Stirling House. Our host, Clay, is a perfect host. The room was as advertised, large and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious as were the little baked treats left for afternoon snacks. The B&B was located within easy walking distance of the Greenport shops and restaurants; we loved it!

Had a short, but sweet stay at the Stirling House, celebrating our anniversary. Clay, the owner, is very welcoming. He greeted us upon arrival with some sweets (macaroons and lemon iced cookies) and showed us around to a little area with help yourself coffee, snacks and a mini fridgerator filled with sodas. They also had several drawers filled with DVDs/movies... More
