“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Had a wonderful time! The inn was lovely and the owner Halina, was so helpful with lots of suggestion of what to do in the area. The inn was clean, bright and had so many special touches!   Breakfast was amazing! That alone is worth the stay! She goes beyond and then some!

Room Tip: All the rooms have its own charm. Only one had no bathroom.

My husband and I spent two nights this past weekend in Greenport and thoroughly enjoyed our visit at The Fordham House. The owner was thoughtful, sincere, and an amazing cook-her homemade yogurt is delicious.

The house is immaculate and she pays attention to details. Although I don't like writing rave reviews because it will just make it difficult to return- I have to say this place was more than delightful.

We stayed at the Fordham house with another couple the last weekend in June. We found the house after doing some research and speaking with Helena personally. We didn't know what to expect - but had our hopes up, she seemed so nice on the phone. Well, she exceeded our expectations! From the moment we pulled up - when she came outside to greet us - we knew we made a good decision. Welcoming and warm, Helena knows the area very well and can help you plan your day (rain or shine), leaves you armed with maps and will send you to the best beach to see the sunset. Her sophisticated taste that is reflected in the house shined most with her amazing restaurant suggestions.

The house has a simple sophistication to it, decorated in Ralph Lauren furniture. The beds were very luxurious with all white sheets and linens – Frette perhaps. The house, rooms and bathrooms were all very clean and neat and beautifully appointed. A maid came in mornings to make up your room etc.

A wonderful breakfast is served and it is truly homemade – from the fresh strained yogurt and granola to the fresh pastry. French press coffee and juice, fruit and other items are laid out on the buffet and then there is a hot main entrée too. If you need something later in the day, snacks and cookies are out as well as filtered water.

I can’t think of anything that could have been done better. We booked our trip late and my friends had the only room where the bathroom was in the hall, which they were not thrilled about. But, it turned out to be next to their room and they were the only ones using it – so it was not an issue at all. We wound up staying in the smallest room, which was super small (we were told about when we booked it) but it was not an issue either. The room was lovely and the bed was so cozy and comfortable we didn’t mind hanging out there and ironically we had a large bathroom. All the other bedrooms were very large and just as lovely, with King beds and seating areas.

I can’t thank Helena enough for being such a warm and welcoming host. We had a wonderful time at the Fordham house and I highly recommend it.

Can't say enough about this charming B&B. My girlfriend and I just spent a great weekend in Greenpoint and this place definitely added to our experience. The place is lovely and warm. Great location. Lovely room decor. The host, Halina, was so accomodating, gracious, and informative about local beaches and restaurants to visit. Breakfast was delicious. And her dog, Humphrey, was a sweetheart. I'd definitely go back which is the best recommendation of all.

Just a classic B&B. A thoughtful hostess, elegant rooms and common areas. A creative breakfast. Location is a short walk to downtown Greenport and close to all of the wineries and to both the cross sound and Shelter Island ferries. Perfect.

We visited Fordham house in June 2013 and had the most wonderful weekend. The house is beautiful, rooms are spacious with well appointed furniture and linens. Halina and Humphry are the most gracious of hosts, and breakfast each morning was a sheer delight. Perfect location within walking distance of town. Can't wait for a return visit!
