This was our first time in Long Island Wine Country. Would recommend this Inn to anyone, especially couples or girls' weekends. The Inn is walkable to three vineyards (Sherman House was a favorite), a farmers' market and the downtown where we went to dinner. It is an ideal spot, especially if you are knocking back a few flights, as we...

After reading the reviews, I decided to book a room for 1 night. Since Riverhead hotels were over $250 for 1 night. Checked in on Friday night after spending the day at different winery in the area, upon Check-in, Duncan was amazing. Got to our room ( #14) it was large enough for the 2 of us, clean, quiet and...

Hospitality was over the top. Duncan went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Did not know what to expect looking at the "motel" from the outside but the rooms were modern and nicely redone. Highly recommend this inn for wine tasting on the north fork.

We've been coming out to the North Fork for wine weekends for a few years. There are very few options for accommodations. All pricy, most require 2 nights. Duncan Inn is reasonable, beautifully decorated and maintained, reasonable and allows a 1 night stay. Great wineries in walking distance. The owner, Duncan, even gave us a ride to one, and hooked...

We found the Inn to be the perfect stop over for our 2 night mini vacation. Our room was very spacious, clean and well done. The King Size Bed was the best. "Location, Location ,Location" close to the Outlet Mall, wineries, restaurants and unique cities such as Mattituck and Greenport kept us busy during our stay. Duncan, the Inn Keeper...

This property is exactly what other's have noted; clean, newly renovated, & provides great customer service from Duncan (the owner). The rooms are small but fit a couple perfectly. The bathroom comes stocked with amenities & the rooms are cleaned daily. We were there 2 nights & found the location to be ideal. It was a quick ride to local...

We first stayed at the property now known as the Duncan Inn around 23 years ago. It was cute and quaint at the time, but over the years traveling out to the North Fork, we've seen it go into disrepair. It is so great and refreshing to see what Duncan has done to the property and what a great experience...

We booked this place on a complete whim based on the prime location; in some cases, you're walking distance or a 5-10 minute drive from the best wineries out in the North Fork. What we weren't expecting was to be treated INCREDIBLY by the owner, Duncan - the most personable, customer-service oriented proprietor. His rooms are updated, clean, and stocked...

Rooms extremely clean. Owner is 'hands-on" and will go "above and beyond" to accommodate guests (refreshing). Our stay was an off-season holiday weekend. Looking forward to this Spring/Summer on the Amazing East End of Long Island !
