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.... More

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... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely experience at Elizabeth's Mainstay B&B. The rooms were all gorgeous, cozy, and comfortable. We loved our king-size bed and fireplace (it was winter). 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... More

My wife came I had a beautiful weekend at Elizabeth's 'MAINSTAY ' in Southampton. The house was beautifully appointed with the best of antique furniture and accessories. We especially loved the beautifully maintained grounds with private sitting areas and heated pool. The proximity to the village shops and the beaches was equally as impressive. We loved every minute of our... More

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. Could not fault it at all. Warm and welcoming reception from Elizabeth, large clean room, excellent breakfast selection and 10 minute walk into Southamption... More

Awesome experience for our first time in the Hamptons! My girlfriend and I really enjoyed Elizabeth's B&B. Elizabeth was very warm and inviting as soon as we stepped through the door of her nicely decorated and detailed place. If you're looking for a classic B&B experience in Southampton, this is the place to be. Our room was extremely spacious, more... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
