“Relaxing and welcoming”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Family of four and we stayed at the B&B in August. The house is very well located and an easy walk into Greenport. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished and Halina is a great host - very welcoming and really interested in helping you maximise your stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

My wife and I stayed at the Fordham House for 5 days last week. We had a wonderful time. Halina runs the B&B and really takes good care of her guests. She serves up a really good breakfast (enough to keep you satisfied for a few hours). Her dog Humphrey is also very welcoming!
We stayed in one of the larger rooms in the front of the house. The room is equipped with it's own bathroom and comfortable queen size bed. The property also boasts a large backyard and a wrap around porch with plenty of seating options.
Halina was also instrumental in helping us plan our daily activities. She really knows the area and gave us great tips on what to see and do. I recomend a few nights at Fordham House.

Room Tip: Book early to get one of the two larger rooms!

For this weekend, we were a family of two instead of a family of four, as we left our kids with their grandparents and spent a fantastic weekend alone on the North Fork of Long Island. Fordham House was the perfect launching point for our daily outings, with a warm friendly environment, delicious breakfasts, parking onsite, and a lovely host. We were able to walk into town for shopping, dinner and a movie, and also walked in the other direction up to explore the beach. Overall, it was a perfect weekend and we can't recommend Fordham House highly enough.

Room Tip: We loved the large queen bed and the giant bathroom!

Stayed here for a weekend right after Memorial Day and couldn't have been happier. Our host Halina knew we'd be arriving later due to weather/heavy traffic and waited up to greet us and show us to our room. The rooms are very nice - spacious with your own bathroom - and seemed isolated from any noise coming from the rest of the house.
Halina is a fantastic cook... the waffles were ridiculously tasty, and the sausage frittata rocks. She also leaves out an assortment of cookies/desserts/drinks at seemingly all hours, and she is always available with advice on what to do for the day. I will be coming back here again to stay, as Greenport is a lovely, quaint town.

Room Tip: there are two sized rooms - we stayed in the larger one at the top of the stairs and it was perfectl...

Wife and I spent 3 nights here and could not have expected any better service or amenities. Halina was great, her kindness and attention to detail was only outdone by her Wanlut/Banana waffles and Sausage/Veggie Fritata. The ocean bluffs were a 15 minute walk and downtown Greenport was the same. Cannot wait to get back!

My husband and I just returned from a weekend stay at Fordham House and we were thrilled with all this B & B had to offer. Halina is a wonderful innkeeper who made our stay extra special. The house is welcoming and the room very comfortable. We loved how tastefully decorated the entire house is!
The breakfast and snacks hit the spot. Fordham House is in a great location--walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in downtown Greenport. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Fordham House for a Bachelorette weekend and Halina was just wonderful! She was fantastic even in the planning process, getting back to me with answers to all my questions and really helped me plan a nice weekend. The House itself has four rooms, my favorite being the master room because, well, that bathroom! I sure took my time in the shower. The wrap around porch was great for hanging out late at night with a bottle of wine. Halina's breakfasts are over the top fantastic. She really brings her A-game. Juices, breads, pastries, waffles, eggs- so yum. The location is also so easy. The walk into town is a really nice 10 minutes, just down one straight road. Greenport is a cool place, not just a small town, restaurants are great and there's a lot to do. And if you head to Orient State Park for beaches and kayaking (highly recommend) it's the prettiest drive of about 15 minutes. Last, but certainly not least, Humphrey, Halina's dog, is the coolest dog I've ever met.

I'll be back.
