“Exceeded Our Expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

About a year or so ago I was doing some research for a great bed and breakfast in the Greenport area. When I found this B&B and read all the great reviews and saw all the great photos, I knew I had to try it!! We got a gift certifcate for the Stirling House and we were finally able to use it this past weekend in November. From the great location in the middle of the Greenport town to the incredible view of Shelter Island and a dock to walk on this house is a MUST!! Clay was just the best!! Breakfast was to die for and it was served on the porch to overlook the water. It turned out to be a beautiful day so it wasnt too cold! We stayed in the Shelter Island room mainly for the view!! The cleanliness of the entire house was definitely up to par! When we checked in there were delicious baked goods for us to try. Clay really made us feel right at home with all the little things he put out for us (the paper, magazines, waters, snacks, coffe, tea, the list can go on and on). He helped us make reservations and booked us with Joann at Vintage Tours (which was one of the best things we had ever done!!). Clay will definitely be seeing alot more of us!! Our trip was pure sucess!!

Had a great stay at the Sterling House in November. Clay was helpful in pointing us to the restaurants to go to and getting reservations if needed. Place is very quiet, with a water view on a quiet cul de sac but it's a short 5 minute walk to town. Place was immaculate and breakfast was perfect.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Stirling House in early November. What a wonderful time to visit! The house is cozy and inviting, sitting at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with a terrific view of the water. Our host, Clay was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on places to eat and things to do. Once he had filled us in, he left us to enjoy our time exploring everything Greenport has to offer. Our breakfast was delicious and served in the sunroom with floor to ceiling windows so we could thoroughly enjoy the morning sun.
We can't wait to come back for a longer stay so we can check out more of the fantastic vineyards in the region. We're so glad New Yorkers haven't found this gem quite yet... ;)

Room Tip: We selected a room at the back of the house with a king sized bed. What a wonderful space! However...

Green Features: Stirling House recycles of course! Clay made a point of showing us where to put everything.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Stirling House Bed & Breakfast.
The house is immaculate and everything you would need to enjoy your time there is readily available, including some amazing home made baked goods, a delicious full breakfast and a view that can't be beat.

Clay is a perfect host: there to guide you but hands off so your time is your own.

We look forward to a return very soon.

Once again we were not disappointed with our stay at the beautiful Stirling House B&B. This is our 4th time there and as always its like coming home. The beautiful water view from the wrap around porch, and now even in the cooler weather the beautiful cozy extension with floor to ceiling windows offers the same beautiful water view while protected from the elements. Our room was clean, neat beautifully decorated and very comfortable ( the French Room is our favorite) on the first floor makes it perfect in the mornings to get the delicious hot coffee before the magnificent breakfasts that Clay serves. Always amazing! The area is perfect for not only wine tasting but everything you could want, including wonderful restaurants, is within walking distance from the Stirling House. Every time we have gone we have brought another couple who was equally taken with this beautiful B & B and Clay's warm, friendly and welcoming personality. My husband and I will be going back. This is the only B & B I would stay at on the North Fork!!

Room Tip: French Room is our favorite, Greenport room has King Size bed and beautiful view, but all three are...

The Stirling House deserves a 6 out of 5 on location! Breakfast is served on the porch overlooking the water, and it is a very short walk to the local shops. Service was great and food was magnificent.

We visited late September, after the crush of summer crowds had departed. The streets and the town were quiet, but most businesses still open and humming. This was fine by us.

Clay and the Stirling House were the perfect combination to assure a fun, restful North Fork experience. We were very much at home during our stay, and although the first floor French Room is comfortable and welcoming, it is very European in size. Not a problem, just an observation.

Breakfasts were exceptional and creative, hand crafted by Clay. Common areas most comfortable, easy walking distance to town and fine dining, and many vineyards only minutes away by car. Worthy of a return visit!
