My husband and I stumbled upon The Well's House by accident. One Saturday we decided to hand the kids over to their grandmother and take a drive out to the east end of Long Island. We had zero plans and zero expectations. Little did we know we would end up having the most amazing and relaxing time of our lives and it would completely take place within a bed and breakfast in Greenport. The exterior is even more quaint and lovely in person but the inside is where the magic can be found. Every inch of the home is beautifully decorated and rich with history. The rooms are the perfect setting to feel pampered in. We tossed out any plans to dine in one of the local restaurants to spend time in this wonderful house and learn its history from the owners Vince and Fran. The house is amazing but the service is even more so. This is due to the warmth and friendliness of the owners. We left the Well's House relaxed, rejuvenated and looking forward to returning as soon as we can. Ah, but I almost forgot to mention the amazing breakfast. The breakfast which was prepared by both Vince and Fran was fantastically made and beautifully presented. What a treat!
If you are debating on where to stay on the North Fork of Long Island (yes I know the North Fork is more than Greenport but that does not matter) pick the Well's House. You will walk away with good memories and new friends
