“The Perfect Weekend”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

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

Room Tip: If you can, request the Captain's Quarters. All rooms are equally beautiful but occupants of th...

The Wells House was so pleased to be a part of your perfect accidental weekend away. Your kind words about Wells House are so touching. Hope to be a part of your next weekend away in the North Fork, accidental or not.

If you don't like well appointed beautiful rooms, plush robes and towels DON'T GO! If you don't like a gourmet 3 course breakfast served on vintage china and crystal, DON'T GO!! If being welcomed and pampered by a charming inn keeper is not for you, DON'T GO!!! The Wells House provides a lovely setting for any visit to Greenport. We have enjoyed several stays at various times of the year. Each season offers something different to see and do. Vince is an amazing inn keeper, opening his door with pride. as it should be!

My wife and I discovered the Wells House B&B Easter weekend of 2012 for a 2 night getaway. Vince is a very entertaining host and his breakfast is to die for. We ate so much every morning we even skipped lunch both days. We returned in 2013 for another weekend getaway that was even better than our first. I highly recommend a trip to Greenport with a stay at this fabulous B&B.

We were looking for a place to stay for one night while visiting the North Fork for a wedding. This was a great find and we will return! A charming, beautifully restored Victorian home in a cute little seaside town. The area was bustling with visitors to the local wineries. Certainly the nicest B&B I've stayed in-- more like a small, luxury hotel. The breakfast was fantastic--a culinary treat that we did not expect. We highly recommend the Wells House, and will certainly visit again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Captains Quarters which was roomy and had a beautiful bathroom.

Wells House is a beautiful B&B located in the heart of Greenport, L.I. From the minute we walked in, we felt as though the owner, Vincent, was an old friend. He is very personable, friendly and accommodating. The house is completely and beautifully renovated and is decorated with lovely antiques that make you feel like you stepped into the past! It is extremely clean and comfortable, and our room was gorgeous! This was our first B&B experience, and it was totally positive. We had a great time, and the breakfast the next morning is an experience in itself. Vincent cooks everything himself, and the meal is delicious! He really goes all out to please his guests and it shows. We are recommending this wonderful place to everyone. Wells House B&B is a truly special place!

My wife and I stayed at the Wells House B&B in June 2012 for our anniversary. Our experience is summarized by four simple comments: (1) Ideal location in Greenport, (2) unbelievable attentive care from Vince [property owner], (3) 5-star (three course) breakfast, (4) and overall terrific experience. Will highly recommend this property to our friends and colleagues.

The owner, Vince, is an interesting man. He is obviously proud of the remake of the Wells House, and has an interesting array of artifacts on display to engage patrons into learning more about his journey in life and the makeover of the house.
The location, just a few minutes walk from the main area of Greenport where the shops and restaurants are located, makes it an ideal spot to leave your car and enjoy the local area by foot.
The house is quiet, and has just three rooms. Thus, it is more intimate than say, the Bartlett House; and I would say that I felt more relaxed/comfortable being in Vince's house (more like being at home).
As such, the draw for the Wells House is Vince. Very personable. Very informative. And he enjoys making/serving a nice breakfast.
While my wife and I were the only guests that weekend, I got the feeling that Vince truly enjoys having "guests", and he was gracious and thoughtful (he left a bottle of champagne on ice for us after learning that our stay was a birthday gift from my wife).
