I stayed with Marty and Elyse for three nights, and my brother 1 night, as we planned and attended our mother's funeral. I was grateful to be able to return to a warm, comforting and peaceful environment at the end of each day. It was evident that Elyse and Marty take pride in their home and value the health, safety and well-being of their guests. The Harbor room overlooks the harbor and pond , and was spacious and very comfortable.. My brother described his room, the Village room as very comfortable and spacious as well. This room overlooks the village. Breakfasts were scrumptious! The SBBBI will continue to be our home away from home when my husband and I visit friends on Long Island.

We had such a great time at the Stony Brookside! My husband and I are avid cyclists and we loved that this B&B was set up for bikes! We took the train from NYC and cycled from the train station to the property (less than 10 min!). Because we came during Covid, things were set up a little but differently but Elyse made us feel totally comfortable, safe, and welcome! The room was super comfortable and clean and the breakfast every morning was delicious! They also had snacks set out which was great to take with us on our bike rides! We LOVED that Elyse and Marty had pre-made bike routes mapped out and we couldn't believe how much there was to do and see around the area! Even if you aren't biking, there are great restaurants, hiking trails, and more all walking distance from the property. We would love to come back again and explore more of the surrounding area!

I stayed at Elyse & Marty’s lovely inn for 2 nights, and enjoyed the last weekend of summer. Although I was graciously offered a bike (their mapped routes looked great!) I was happy walking everywhere— at the nature preserve nearby, to the beach for swims, to restaurants nearby for delicious dinners. Breakfast at the inn is home-made, fresh, and terrific. The inn is very clean, comfortable, and welcoming, and I enjoyed books about the history of the area. Elyse and Marty are very kind hosts, and whether you are a biker or not, this is a stop worth noting!

Wow! Thank you Emerald for the very positive review! We were so happy to have you join us and were thrilled that you took advantage of everything special we have to offer here. You even made a point to get in a daily swim in our local beach every day. We only hope you can come back and join us again soon, and maybe even get in a bike tour too!

This is a great spot for a perfect weekend getaway. The hosts Elyse & Marty are friendly warm kind hearted hosts. The breakfast was delicious, their home is nice and clean, the guest rooms are extremely clean, we truly felt like we where visiting with family. My husband and his friend went for a bicycle ride, Marty & Elyse fitted them for a perfect bike ride, beaches are nice and close, my girlfriend and I spent our morning shopping and then we relaxed on the local beach, restuarants are in walking distance, along with unique shops, all in walking distance. During this time of covid19 pandemic, they did a wonderful job of keeping us all safe. We would highly recommend this beautiful cozy B&B to anyone looking for the prefect getaway
