On a trip to Long Island this past weekend. My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. As we examined the very extensive menu board we asked the man behind the counter what he recommended. He gave several suggestions and we decided on a roast beef with mozzarella hero. With chips, a drink, and some cookies it was...

Where to start? The house is very cool. It is an 1800s colonial. Clay, the in keeper has done an awesome job with the decor. There is something interesting to look at every where you glance. About Clay, wonderful host. Friendly, funny and damn, he can cook. The breakfast was amazing. We stayed in the shelter island room which has...

The location was perfect. Everything in town was walking distance and you could enjoy a view of the water from the porch or from inside. The decor was fun and interesting! Clay made a delicious breakfast in the morning and was so thoughtful, including anything you could need and made adjustments for dietary needs. He also offered to help with...

Our second stay at the Stirling House was even better than the first! We love the Greenport room, so romantic and cozy. The location is perfect, right across from the bay and short walking distance to everything in town. My favorite part of this lovely B&B is the anticipation of breakfast....not knowing what Clay will serve but knowing that it...

If you are looking for a romantic get away, this is it. The inn itself is charming and warm. Located right on the water with a beautiful view. Walking distance to fine restaurants and shopping and short driving distance to the famous wineries of the north fork. Probably the most unique benefit of this outstanding B&B is it's host Clay...

We can't say enough about our picture perfect weekend with Clay at the Stirling House. After two kids in two years my husband and I were in need of a relaxing weekend away and we certainly found.

Our third stay at the Stirling House was just as steeped in perfection as the first two. Clay was, as always, perfectly friendly and wonderful. The room was still perfectly clean. The views are perfect. And somehow the food gets better than perfect the more that we visit. We will be back!
