Recently renovated cozy Southampton inn, with five rooms and a pool, only minutes from shops, restaurants and the beach

The Lowdown

Opened July 1, 2015, after a head-to-toe renovation, White Fences Inn is a classic Hamptons sleep that effortlessly blends beachy, breezy style with modern comforts, while preserving original details (wood beam ceilings and doors) from the house’s origins in 1740. The five guestrooms have been thoughtfully decorated by owners Eric and Liz Brodar. Sisal and faux tiger pelt rugs sit on fern hardwood floors, and stainless steel gas fireplaces keep things cozy. The beds have nail-trimmed fabric headboards and are wrapped in crisp Matouk linens topped with down comforters and mint decorative pillows. The spacious bathrooms feature radiant floor heating, soaking tubs (in some) and Malin + Goetz grapefruit, cilantro and neroli–scented products. Enjoy a home-cooked three-course breakfast (think asparagus avocado egg sandwiches and nutella banana nut muffins) at the dining room table, which was custom made for the inn by Huston and Company in Kennebunkport, Maine. Afterward, head out back for a dip in the pool or grab a cushioned lounger and while away an afternoon with a good book.

In the Area

Just down the road from the inn, the Parrish Art Museum showcases some 2,600 works, from 19th-century landscape paintings to American Impressionism, as well as more contemporary pieces. If you’re looking to flex that plastic, Southampton’s Main Street and Jobs Lane are lined with high-end boutiques and stores like Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Vineyard Vines. When hunger strikes, head to 75 Main (and order the truffle crumb stuffed breast of chicken with creamy polenta, garlic and broccoli rabe), or for something more casual, the Driver’s Seat Restaurant.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
Reviewed 7 days ago

We were treated by my employer to a lovely weekend in the Hamptons and could not have been more impressed with the level of service and cleanliness that the White Fences Inn offers.

From the lavender pillow spray, and incredible breakfast to the the complimentary books that you can take home if you don't finish Eric and Liz thought of everything a guest could possibly want. We very much enjoyed our time relaxing in our bathrobes by the fireplace, but Liz was ready and excited to give us great suggestions on what to do in the area even though it was "off season."

Bailey the dog was the highlight of our trip! He was so sweet and well behaved and it was so nice to be greeted by a wagging tail each morning!

Memorable Birthday Weekend in the Hamptons !!!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I like to surprise my wife every year for her birthday, by booking a weekend getaway. She has been talking about going to Long Island to visit some wineries, so I did my homework, and searched. I believe this was an A+ !!! From the beginning, Liz was extremely hospitable !!! She recommended a larger room for us, which was a perfect choice !!! Both Liz and Eric prepared and served 3 course breakfasts that were amazing !!! The room was so cozy and comfortable. We really loved the fireplace !! But, the thing that was OVER the TOP for me, Liz and Eric were sponsoring a wine and food tasting, and invited us. Who does that ?? We have been to many bed and breakfasts, and this one is now on top !!!! Great location too ! Liz set us up for live music Friday night at the Wolffer Estate Winery, as well as at the American Hotel for what was a top 10 dinner !!! I HIGHLY recommend it. She also recommended Zuki Sushi which was excellent as well, and one of the few restaurants open late ! It was a great location for visiting wineries as well, which I understand there are about 50 !!! We will just have to return to visit some more wineries !!!! We plan to return next year for another birthday weekend, or even sooner !!! You will NOT be disappointed when you stay here !!!! And I almost forgot ......... the Nespresso machine in our room was another amazing touch ! The coffee was so good, we bought a Nespresso machine for our home !!! Thanks Liz and Eric for such an amazing stay !!!!! Give a pet to Bailey for us !!! This bed and breakfast deserves a 6 on Tripadvisor !!!

I love White Fences! This was my 4th visit and I cannot think of a place in world where I feel as welcome and pampered. Liz and Eric are perfect hosts with an eye for every detail to make my stays exceptional. I sleep like a baby in that sumptuous bed! The only thing that gets me up in the morning is knowing I have a delicious breakfast waiting for me. The breakfast grilled cheese and egg sandwich was perfect. I've visited in and off season and the level of quality and luxury is unwavering. And what can I say about Bailey, the canine concierge!

Great time in winter

Another great visit at White Fences. As usual the rooms are beyond and are hosts are the best. Great breakfast. So much to do even in the winter. We took a drive out to the Montauk light house. We also went to Wolfer vineyards for a candlelighting. So much fun. Then to top off our visit we went ice skating at the Southampton ice skating rink. We are looking forward to our next visit.
