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

Thank you Elizabeth for a really lovely stay at Mainstay. We all enjoyed your genuine hospitality, your charming hotel, the relaxing swimming pool and your delicious breakfast every morning! Thanks for a memorable stay in the Hamptons!

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

This is our second summer staying at The Mainstay in the Gin Lane Suite. The room was recommended by the owner Elizabeth because we brought our daughter, who in 16months and has lots of baby stuff! Room is very clean and spacious. Love the dark hard wood floors, white apholstry and linens, and the eclectic decor. Breakfast is simple, but... More

We stayed at the mainstay inn for our one year anniversary. It was a 10 min ride ($15) from the train station. Elizabeth greeted us very generously with some wine before bringing us to our room in the back. We stayed in the private and beautiful Garden Room. The room has a nice queen sized bed, and is decorated beautifully.... More
