Booking just five days in advance the only room available was a two room suite. The owner stated that it was a $650 per night rate and offered it for $450 per night. It turned out to be a hodgepodge in the attic. There were no sprinklers and only one way out from the third floor if there was,God Forbid,...

Some people should only stay at the Ritz Carlton.

Clean, spacious rooms; a friendly host; better than average breakfast; 5 minutes from Main St. and she has an outdoor in-ground pool! This is one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at. The Pollack Krasner home and studio are less than 20 minutes away too.

As soon as we walked in to this wonderful 200 year old home, it was warm and we were greeted by 2 poodles and Elizabeth, the owner. The dogs were friendly and WELL trained. It was a beautiful home decorated in Colonial/Victorian flavor with a nice touch of Country. We were given our room key and directed up-stairs to our...

We spent two lovely nights at the Mainstay Inn in April. We were warmly welcomed and offered as much information and suggestions that we wanted. Our room was beautiful and extremely comfortable and well appointed with everything we could possibly need. Breakfast was nicely served and gracious. We would certainly recommend it and hope to return.

It was our first time at a B & B and at the Hampton's. The room was very cozy, the property was very nice. Early Spring, so the flowers weren't quite blooming but it was easy to imagine how lovely the property must look. The rest of the house was quite beautiful. The low fat waffles (with bananas) where delicious....

I'm sure the Mainstay is fabulous in the summer, but it is also a divine getaway in winter. There is a very comfortable, elegantly shabby chic feeling to the large rooms and the owner/innkeeper, Elizabeth, is a wonderful hostess. She hits all the notes perfectly. I slept more soundly than I have in years. The sheets are crisp, the pillows...

Elizabeth herself was delightful, friendly, and kind. She made a wonderful breakfast and awesome coffee! We were able to walk into town and to the beach, although you could easily...

If you are going to the Hamptons, make this your first port of call for an excellent B&B. We recently stayed at the Mainstay to recharge our batteries following a NYC/DC trip across from the UK.
