“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Kim and Chris were some of the warmest, friendliest, and most helpful hosts we've ever had at a B&B. Chris used to be a butler (hence the name) and the attention to detail in every aspect of the house is impeccable.

The property itself is beautifully-kept and maintained, with an amazing garden in the backyard and a gigantic salt-water pool, and is only a few minute drive (or a 15 minute walk) into the center of Southampton. And if you want to go to the beach (and you do - it is an excellent, quiet, and picturesque beach), you don't have to worry about crazy expensive parking fees or visitor's passes - Kim or Chris will give you a lift at any time at a moment's notice, dropping you off with a couple of beach chairs. And when you want to come home, you just give them a call and they're there in the parking lot by the time you've made it off the beach.

Sometimes, when a place has great service and good hosts, you get the sense they are willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy. But Kim and Chris give the sense that helping people have a completely seamless and relaxing stay is not just a job for them to accomplish but something they actually honestly, truly enjoy. And that distinction makes all the difference, and really sets Butler's Manor apart from the dozens of "good" B&Bs in the area. It's just on another level.

Room Tip: We really liked the Villefranche room, which has a four-post bed and a bathroom with a skylight over...

Choosing A Butler's Manor means there can't be anything wrong. Kim and Chris make your stay unforgettable from the start. The house itself, the surrounding harding, the rooms, just everything. If you'd like to stay in the Hamptons you should try this. We weren't able to stay more than a night because they were fully booked but we would and will definitely come back when we will be on Ling Island again.

After our wounderful sojourn last year we were delighted to find back Kim and Chris charming and helpful as usual.During 8 days we enjoyed their homely B&B, the romantic garden,the delicious breakfast.A cosy reading room is also available.It is well known that Chris provides very good ideas for restaurants,visiting areas and finding your way in the Hamptons.

We have stayed with Chris and Kim three times now - the only place in the US we have ever revisited. We find the entire house charming, richly decorated but not fussy, comfortable but not formal, the beds are very good, the breakfasts beautifully crafted. Their resturant and touring recommendations are spot on.This time they also rescued us from (my) stupidity. I locked my wallet into our hire car and posted the keys into the drop box. They arranged, through a local, to have the car opened and my wallet recovered.

Room Tip: We feel Eton has the best bed.

Based on previous reviews, we knew we were in for a nice stay, but this was exceptional, largely because Chris and Kim made it feel like a few days in the Hampton's with friends. Besides getting spot-on recommendations for dining and touring, the highlight for us was the delicious breakfast each morning in the garden. Can't wait for next summer....

My husband and I visited the Hamptons for the first time, and put an enormous amount of research in to where we should stay. We were not disappointed with A Butlers Manor! The attention to detail is astounding and our every need was catered for and then some....
Chis and Kim, can't do enough for you and it is such a lovely change from impersonal hotels.
We both look forward to visiting again.
Thanks to you both for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in Oak Knoll, a beautifully decorated and peaceful room.

My husband and I stayed at Butlers Manor for a rest and relax before a hectic week in New York. This trip is to celebrate our 20th anniversary, what a beautiful place to celebrate. The moment you walk in you know you are somewhere special. The English garden is beautifully kept are manicured and loved. When we entered the Inn we were welcomed by Chris and Kim, truly lovely, friendly and inviting people.
This Inn goes above and beyond with everything you need from beautiful flesh flowers in your room to sherry to drink, a beach bag with towels in your cupboard ready to go, complimentary soft drinks in the fridge in the lounge area with plates, glasses and cutlery available to you if required. When we walked into our room there were fresh vase of flowers with a Happy Anniversary balloon with a beautiful bottle of champagne in an ice bucket with glasses. In the bathroom was a little kit put together with a sample of Chanel perfume, mouthwash, shower cap, shoe mitten, makeup remover towelette, bath salts, bath robe and even a new lip balm. There is a chest that you can access with everything from a hair straighter to sprays, Fresh cookies are baked for you each afternoon and coffee and tea available anytime.
Chris has great knowledge of the area and was extremely helpful and willing to spend time with you and explain places to go and see. They supplied a fantastic maps and information of the area all prepared and waiting for your arrival. They had a huge folder of all the local restaurants with menu’s, extremely useful.
The sheets on the bed were beautiful, along with the extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast perfect.
Thank you Chris and Kim if we are ever in this part of the world again we will defiantly visit and stay longer.
