“a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

we stayed at Stirling House at the beginning of May with our friends. We were all taken with Clay's hospitality and the charming property. Our room was clean, comfortable and imaginatively furnished. The breakfasts were a gourmet feast and Clay's croissants the best we have ever tasted outside France! All in all a totally good experience and we were reluctant to leave!

Room Tip: We slept in the Shelter Island room which had a lovely view over the water!

Went out to Long Island for our 27th wedding anniversary on May 22nd. We had been to Clayton's first place back in 2004, so this was our first visit to Bay Street. Even though the weather was rainy and windy our stay couldn't have been better! The room was ultra clean with a very comfortable king sized bed. The view of the water is excellent and as we love to walk, we were close to downtown and many fine restaurants. The breakfasts were better than you would ever get at a fine restaurant and Clayton is about as good as a host can be. Thanks to the Stirling House, we had one of the best anniversary's ever.

My husband and I stayed at the Stirling house for the first time this past weekend and had a great time. We have never been to the North Folk before and from the first phone call, Clay was very helpful, recommending restaurants, wineries and places to see. The Stirling House is located on a quiet street across the street from the water. Clay welcomed us when we checked in with a glass of wine and homemade treats. We stayed in the French Room, which was immaculate and nicely decorated. Each morining, we were served a delicious homemade gourmet breakfast on the porch and during the day there were always homemade treats and snacks available. The B&B is located a block from the main town of Greenport, so you can walk to the restaurants and shops. We ate at Noah's and the Frisky Oyster based on Clay's recommendation. Both restaurants were very good. If you are looking for a nice relaxing weekend, in a romantic B&B, the Stirling House is where you should stay. I know that we are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The French Room had a separate sitting area with a sofa and chair. This room is located on the firs...

We had a fantastic stay at Stirling House. Clay was most accommodating, offering to pick us up from the Hampton Jitney and dropping our bags off for us so we could wander around the beautiful streets of Greenport.
Stirling House was cosy and inviting and the breakfast was delicious.... The best we had for our entire trip! Clay was a most gracious host and we hope to be back some day.
Thanks Clay!

This was our first time to North Fork...but it won't be our last! We were looking for a quick weekend getaway, and even though we are both avid wine drinkers and residents of Northern NJ, we had never been to North Fork. In an attempt to avoid the crowds and the traffic, we planned a trip in mid April and took a chance on the weather! It was a bit chilly, but that couldn't keep us away from a day full of wine tasting and en evening indulging in one of the best meals of our lives (North Fork Table). However, the highlight of the trip, and the reason we are already planning a return trip, was our stay at the Stirling House. The owner, Clay, was one of the friendliest, most hospitable B&B owners I have ever met. Prior to our trip he provided fantastic recommendations as well as booked our dinner reservation at one of the hottest restaurants in town! The inn is directly across from the water, and the front porch provides an ideal location for sitting back with a glass of wine. The house is beautifully decorated and spotless (trust me, I looked)! Each room (3) has its own personality/character which adds to the charm of the house. To top it off, Clay prepares a delicious breakfast every morning, as well as snacks in the afternoon. We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs and this is one we will definitely going back to. Not to mention, it was located in the heart of Greenport so you could walk to all of the great restaurants and shops!

Ever wanted to escape from the husltle and bustle of work, kids and life for at least one night, well I have the perfect solution, " Stirling House Bed & Breakfast". Clay will welcome you and provide you with recommendations to do while in the area (activity (wine tour) & dinner) both were superb. After your activities, you get to come home (Stirling House) and unwind with coffee, tea and snacks and then retire to a lovely decorated room with all the amenities. In the morning, your treated like family, served breakfast (homemade crossiants) in a cozy and picturesque setting. All in all, my wife and I highly recommend staying at Stirling House, if you need to get away for the day and night.
