5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We stayed at the Fordham House Columbus Weekend. Everything was lovely.Halena,the Inn-keeper couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. She has thought of every little detail.Our room was so cozy and luxurious. Her breakfasts were so delicious and hardy, we did not need lunch . We had a full weekend planned, but she had many recommendations of activities and local restaurants.We will definitely be back .

Room Tip: We chose the least expensive room,but didn't feel that we missed out on any of the luxury.

My boyfriend set up a surprise weekend away for me and it was truly decadent. As everyone else has said about the Fordam House the attention to detail was wonderful and her breakfast with the fresh fruits and the amazing waffles was a wonderful way to start the day. We skipped out on breakfast the first day and decided to sleep in late and Helina insisted that she pack a snack bag for us so we were able to enjoy picnic on the ferry to Shelter Island. If you can stay in the room with the very large bathroom it is like having a sitting room to relax in. I would highly recommend staying at the Fordam House.

Spent the weekend for my husbands birthday. We had a great time. The house is beautiful, with so much charm. The furnishings are gorgeous. Breakfast was also wonderful with fresh juice, yogurt, fruit, and also a gourmet hot course as well. We will definately come back, maybe for a winter getaway. Highly recommend the Fordham house.

We loved it here, Helina is really friendly and welcoming with great advice on the the area for a visiting Londoner. Our favourite beach was only a short cycle ride away.
The house too is really special, beautiful timber and lots of light and style.
We were recomended to stay here by a friend and we found Fordham House had even more to offer than we expected. Fabulous, thank you.

Everything about this B&B was fabulous for me and my husband. I just love historic homes and this one lived up to my expectations. From the moment i stepped on the porch I new I was going to like it here. The attention to detail was evident everywhere i looked. The main floor of the home was grand with beautiful furnishings that invited you to sit down and relax. The main dining room where breakfast was served was open and very comfortable with individual tables for 2. Halina the owner, was fantastic. She showed us around the home and explained some of the history and showed us 2 of the large bedrooms we could choose from. Both were beautifully decorated but I just had to choose the one with the bathroom that was so big it could have been another bedroom. The bed itself was very comfy. The decor throughout the home was a little Ralph Lauren/Porrerybarnish. The linens were quality and a maid came to make our bed and change our towels each day while we were out and about in Greenport. I loved breakfast because it was a little self serve with fresh fruit, yogurt, granola and juice waiting for you while Halina cooked up fantastic waffles Belgian style and french pressed your coffee to order. I just love Greenport and visiting the wineries and now I love the Fordham House as our new place to stay.

The finest bed and breakfast found on the North Fork is by far the Fordham House in Greenport New York. Halina, who operates the B&B, is simply wonderful. She makes you feel very special. The B&B itself is gorgeous, from the furniture to the beautiful wood accents to the beautifully decorated rooms. The beds are so comfortable that you will have the best night sleep. The breakfast is incredible, from the fresh fruit to the delicious hot entree. Everything is just wonderful about the Fordham House. Treat your special someone to the Fordham House. You will not be disappointed!!!

The Fordham House in Greenport, New York on the North Fork is nothing less than exceptional. The moment you arrive, you are greeted by Halina, the innkeeper, and you feel like you just met a long lost family member. The inn itself is beautifu!!!! From the amazing antique stained glass windows to the incredibly decorated rooms, you feel like you are home!!! The inn itself is nothing short of spotless!!! The breakfast is wonderful!! From the fresh squeezed juice to the homemade breakfast entree you feel as if you are at a five star restaurant. Run to book the Fordham House for your stay on the North Fork. You WILL NOT be disappointed!!!! The Fordham House is the place to stay!!!!!
