My fiancé and I just returned from a one night stay at The Mainstay Inn. We stayed in the "Bishop Lane" room on the top floor and it was very relaxing and comfortable, exactly what we needed. The private bath was right outside the door and the claw foot tub was a great touch. Elizabeth, the owner, was very accommodating... More

Elizabeth, the Inn Keeper, was gracious as always. I enjoyed a wonderfully restful night in a very luxurious room with a fireplace; the bed was really comfortable with plenty of pillows and beautiful bedding, and the bath and amentities made me feel pampered. Fall is beautiful in the Hamptons, and the Mainstay's location is very convenient - close but not... More

Beautiful rambling old house with all modern amenities. Attractively decorated in character with the house. Very comfortable bed. Roomy. Convenient to Cooper's Beach. Wonderful hostess. Gorgeous grounds. Would gladly stay there again!

We stayed in "Bishop Lane" room. I am SO thankful I ignored the previous review about this room. It is TOTALLY UNTRUE. This room was great! The Private bath is right outside the door. My husband is not a small man and was quite comfortable. It is definitely NOT the attic! There is a gorgeous claw foot tub and no... More

We stayed in the Garden Room on a late summer Saturday night and it was the perfect place for a quick getaway from the city. The room was seriously charming with great light. Elizabeth's service was spectacular--she was warm, welcoming and accessible but without being too accessible, which made for a nice, private homey feel. The breakfast exceeded my expectations!...

My boyfriend and I needed a break from the city and stayed for a week at Mainstay. We had a wonderful vacation, the house is beautiful and each room unique and thoughtfully decorated. Our room was light and airy, surrounded by trees, with lots of windows and a nice breeze at night. Mainstay is easygoing and comfortable, it felt like... More

We were lucky to find Mainstay in our hastily planned trip to Southampton. The house is old, beautifully decorated and completely charming, the rooms were large and comfortable and Elizabeth could not have been more hospitable. There is a lovely pool in the back and the location is close to the beach and town.

Was lucky to get a room for $300 on Sunday in August. This was my first time staying at Bed and Breakfast and this was a great experience. Beautiful house with a wonderful hostess Elizabeth. My suite (Gins room) was huge, in fact there were two rooms with a single bed in another room. The bedroom was stylishly furnished with... More

I have been coming to Mainstay since 2003 with then my fiancé, later husband and 3 children. Charming, old world. Without fail every time we stayed there, every year without fail, a carafe of port was awaiting in our room on the bedside table. Breakfast is served every morning - something for everyone- home made waffles, hard boiled eggs, country... More
