Everyone knows about the Hamptons on Long Island which is on the South Fork of Long Island. The North Fork has now become a great place to live and visit. The North Fork goes from the town of Riverhead on the west side to Orient on the east. From Orient, you can take your auto on the Ferry north to New London, Connecticut.
On our last trip to the North Fork, we stayed at the Duncan Inn which was purchased last year by Duncan Kennedy, a very highly successful businessman who has years of service in the hospitality business. He remodeled and redecorated the Inn over the past year and it is really a wonderful place to stay with plenty of amenities. It is a newly renovated 20 room and suites motel. They have refrigerators to keep your food and beverages chilled and a microwave to heat them up. They serve coffee in the lobby, water and soda. in the mornings as well as snacks, juices, bottled water and soda. They are within walking distance to shops, restaurants and wineries in the area. They have a huge picnic area in the back to have food or cocktails or wine.
Duncan Kennedy is a real great host and takes great care with each of the guests staying with him. He knows what it takes to make guests want to return and stay there, and they do! While we were there, we met several guests that have stayed there several times. And he only purchased the Inn in December, 2015 and he already has a solid guest list of people who returns to stay there. Duncan Kennedy is one of the terrific and exception guys who have the ‘Passion’. He enjoys life and he enjoys what he is doing and it shows! We know that he will be extremely successful in this new venture.

Jamesport was originally founded in the 1690’s. Between Whaling and fishing and people coming there to visit, the town has withstood the test of time. While you are the area, there are a lot of commercial farms and orchards that yield corn, vegetables, berries, flowers, potatoes, apples and pumpkins.
In addition there in are several wineries in the area. Jamesport is home of Jamesport Vineyards and Martha Clara Vineyards and is very near to most of the other three dozen wineries in the area with 30 miles. A couple miles to the north they have the beaches of Long Island Sound. Jamesport is a wonderful place to visit and relax and the Duncan Inn is the perfect place to stay.
