Wells House B&B - Greenport, New YorkCirca 1859. Recently renovated Wells House with meticulous care for its historic integrity, this Italianate sea captain’s home is listed in the National Register and boasts original marble fireplace mantles, wide plank floors and a red mahogany curved banister. Relax beyond the iron gates amid a Victorian ambiance and peacefully secluded grounds with shade trees, flowers, a stone patio and two private covered porches.

Each of the window sets were removed and worked tirelessly by hand; over 80 windows were restored and as they always have been when no screws were used.

The Wells House original wide blank pine floors are in amazing condition and just beautiful to behold. The wide soffits that surround the Wells House are ideal, and the corbels you see have been painstakingly painted by hand in 3 of the primary colors of the Wells House exterior.

Any visitor will be transported immediately back to the 19th century upon entering the Wells House property… leaving the 21st century’s problems on the sidewalk.
