I look forward to the breakfasts offered in proper bed and breakfast establishments. The Mainstay in Southampton only offered a continental breakfast with yogurt, fruit, and make your own waffles. There were also some issues with cleanliness as the duvet on the bed was stained in a very disgusting manner. For the money you can do better, get yourself a...

We are very sorry that this couple who had just gotten married were so unhappy with their stay here. They had booked a small room for their honeymoon, usually newlyweds stay in a large king suite. When I realized that the bride was unhappy I offered a larger room and at no extra cost. They arrived on a day that...

The Mainstay is the perfect country home B and B. The individually decorated rooms give the feel of staying over with a friend while visiting beautiful Southampton. So much attention to detail by the lovely owner Elizabeth. A charming breakfast is included. We would definitely stay here again. Also fairly good proximity to beaches.

Everything about Mainstay was a positive experience. Elizabeth was all about seeing to it that our visit to Mainstay and South Hampton was an enjoyable one. We would not change a thing and absolutely plan to return.

The Mainstay offers everything you'd want in a getaway to the Hamptons. It's conveniently located in Southampton a mile or so from the beach and town. The property is well manicured with a fantastic salt water pool. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The house has a classic country feel with all the comforts you'd want that makes it...

The Mainstay has the most delightful, idyllic, tranquil accommodations. Simply perfection. From the gardens, to the saltwater pool, to the suites and down to the details of the linens, everything was sheer perfection. Elizabeth Main (owner) has an eye for style and detail, and knows exactly how to keep her guests coming back. Located in the heart of Southamption, this...

The rooms are beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable ,good breakfasts and Elizabeth is a wonderful hostess who went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. The house is a good mile out of Southampton so...

We had a lovely stay at the Mainstay for 2 nights. We didn't take advantage of much of the facilities as we had other plans. Elizabeth, the owner, is very nice and quite accommodating. The breakfast is very simple (fruit, baked bread, yogurt, waffles, hard boiled eggs), so if you're expecting something elaborate, this is not for you. Our room,...
