We just visited the Stirling House a week ago for 4 nights and included in our stay the Vine Time tour package with JoAnne. This gave us the opportunity to tour a number of wineries (buy wine) and eat at several of the area's best restaurants. We arrived on Friday afternoon - a bit earlier than our plan but Clay met us at the door and welcomed us in as if we were family and helped carry in our bags. That was how our terrific 4 day stay started. And it got better after that. Each morning his breakfasts were incredible and served as a humble chef and host that he is. We ate on the front porch looking out at the bay and each morning the weather was spectacular. The room we stayed in was upstairs and was equipped with a private bath (as they all are), a TV, DVD player, iPod dock, AC - honestly all of the amenities we needed and more. The bed was as comfortable as home and the decor had special touches that demonstrate Clay's personal care for the house and his guests. Two other couples stayed over the weekend and while we stayed on two more days, the level of service did not waver - he treated us with the attention and care that we felt when we first arrived. We also connected with the other two couples to the degree that we hope to meet again at Stirling House and are now Facebook friends. That is what Stirling House and Clay created - an atmosphere of family and friends. He greeted us upon our arrival with a bottle of wine from a local winery - amazing. Every couple received bottles of wine based on our preferences - and he asked in advance so he got it right. He was careful to inquire about dietary restrictions, likes and dislikes, etc. and all of our meals were perfect. Clay also knows Greenport in depth and helped all of us find things that were of interest to us. He is a well respected member of the B&B community in the North Fork area and for good reason - he is an Innkeeper of the highest order. We not only will return but have recommended this experience to friends and family since our return. For those who seek relaxation, great food, wine, small town atmosphere, Greenport is the place to visit. For those who want the best B&B experience in the area with a host who cares to make it special and make you feel like family, Stirling House and Clayton Sauer are what you are looking for.
