Vince is wonderful. Besides being a great host, he is also a great chef for breakfast. The B&B is beautiful, clean and cozy. Its about half a mile from Greenport center so great for walking into town to eat and wine (obviously). So happy to have found this B&B.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built by Captain Wells in 1859, Wells House has been a fixture in the North Fork community for over 150 years. In 2008, owner Vince Albert Icolari renovated Wells House to be an elegant and luxurious bed and breakfast. Filling the Tuscan-styled home with antiques and antiquities he has collected over the years, Vince has created the ultimate experience in style and sophistication, while maintaining a sense of comfort. Wells House remains the only L-Shapes Italianate in Greenport. Located in the heart of the village of Greenport, Wells House Bed & Breakfast offers close proximity to the top restaurants, shopping and activities of the picturesque port town. Taking a stroll right down Main Street finds the most delicious fine dining experiences, shopping in charming boutiques, or an evening drink at one of the quaint bars. While the location of Wells House Bed & Breakfast offers the best of Greenport just steps from its front door, the property is surrounded by carefully chosen landscaping, offering the utmost privacy. The back lanai allows for private dining alfresco or an evening cocktail. Wells House Bed & Breakfast offers the best of both worlds, privacy and proximity. ... more   less
