Stirling House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 10 Greenport B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Just back from several days at this very comfortable, welcoming and clean B&B. And, what a spot, overlooking the Peconic Bay! Clay runs a very professional B&B, makes every effort to accommodate his guests, and delights in preparing his wonderful breakfasts. Everything organic, homegrown and house-made, fresh and delicious. The place is comfortable, and spotless (very important to this traveler). The Town is charming, and lots of good restaurants and other attractions within walking distance. A great place, and a great time!

Room Tip: Two lovely rooms, up a flight of stairs, one has a king sized bed and is fairly large, the other has...

This was a last minute get away and we are thrilled how it turned out. Clay is the perfect host. The room was comfortable, clean and so nicely decorated. The breakfast each day was freshly made and delicious! Fresh orange juice and fresh baked breads were unbelievable. Close to lots of great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Our visit to Stirling House B & B was a mid-week last minute vacation. What a wonderful choice we made! The location was amazing. The B & B was even more amazing - lovely, comfortable, spotless and so relaxing. The breakfast was outstanding. Clay was incredibly welcoming. He provided a spot-on suggestion for dinner. It was so nice to walk through lovely Greenport to our restaurant.
Thanks again, Clay. We had a wonderful time and will be back soon!

We stayed at the Stirling B&B last year and I must say, I miss it. The breads and breakfast was perfect. Clay is a great baker! Our room was on the 1st floor and had the best amenities - loved the lotions & soaps.
Greenport is wonderful to walk around - - we ate so much seafood. You can take the ferry and go to the Hamptons for a day....
We will definitely go back again - - soon!!

I met friends at The Stirling House for a friend's birthday celebration. They are frequent guests at the B&B and have always raved about it. Clay is a wonderful host (not to mention an amazing baker) and made me feel at home right away. I stayed in the Shelter Island room, with a beautiful view of the water and, you got it, Shelter Island. It couldn't have been nicer, more roomy, or any more comfortable. The front porch, when not being used to serve breakfast, it the perfect place to relax. I spent many hours reading, relaxing, or just gazing out to sea in an Adirondack chair there. No matter how hot it got, the breeze was just right. My room was equipped with a TV and built-in DVD player. There is a treasure trove of DVDs downstairs, available for guests' use and, as a night person, after my friends had retired, it was nice to watch a movie while relaxing in bed. I also must comment on the baked treat of the day! Every day, Clay baked a different treat for the guests. Did I say he was a great baker? Well, I wasn't kidding! He's also very knowledgable about the wineries and restaurants of the area. He never hovers but is always there when you need him or have a question. The perfect host, really. It was an absolutely lovely weekend. I would whole-heartedly recommend Stirling House for a perfect North Fork getaway!

We had a lovely time during our weekend at the Stirling House. Breakfast on the porch every morning was the best part! Clay even provided for my special diet needs with delicious menus. The room was charming and comfortable. There were plenty of clothes hangers!!! Also a comfortable chair and comfortable bed. The view of Shelter Island out the windows was spectacular.

My family and I stayed at Stirling House a few weeks ago to celebrate an anniversary milestone. Staying with Clay and partaking in the Vine Time weekend was the best decision we could have made. Clay took care of everything, so the weekend was planned to perfection! The accommodations were beautiful, and the location was great; a 3 minute walk to downtown Greenport and lots of top notch NYC worthy restaurants. The B&B is located directly across from a stunning view of the bay, so having breakfast on the porch is a treat. Clay prepared amazing breakfasts both days; typically two courses! His food was so good, that I may have to ask for his recipes or visit again and take his Sunday am baking course! I am still dreaming of his baked pear and his German pancake, delicious! Clay also provided mid afternoon snacks like sugar cookies and apple turnovers and the BEST sangria that I have ever had. If you are looking for the perfect weekend getaway, look no further!

Hi, I am so glad you had a nice time out here in Greenport and the North Fork. That wine from the sangria was actually wine I made at a wine-making course. I like to bake, but wine-making is apparently not my forte...BUT it does make a good sangria lol. What's that saying? ... when life gives you wine that tastes like lemons, make sangria ; ) Hope to see you again soon
