Overview

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.

Amazing...again!

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.

Great Winter Stay at White Fences Inn

We enjoyed a comfortable and relaxing two nights at the White Fences Inn. The location was great and centrally located to different points of interest in the area. Our room was beautiful and spacious with a fantastic bathroom and high end products. We were offered a room upgrade without any prompting since we were the only guests at the property in the middle of the week. Liz and Eric were friendly without being overbearing and helped with dinner reservations and area suggestions. Bailey was charming. Thanks for a great stay!

Sleepless in the Hamptons
Reviewed 2 months ago

Situated about 100 feet from a race track like roadway. My wife and I could not get
a decent nights sleep. I hit my head walking into the bathromm because the height
to the entryway was shorter than normal as was the room ceiling. The floors were like
being in an old creaking farm house and woke us both up as we tried to use the
bathroom during the night. The manager would not let us change the room and offered nothing in return for our experience.
A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE UNLESS YOU LIKE TRYING TO SLEEP NEAR A NASCAR RACE TRACK.

A wonderful trip!

We had such a great time! We loved everything about the White Fence Inn. The attention to detail is amazing. Such luxurious bath products, the sheets on the bed, the robe, the nespresso machine in the room! We loved how clean it was and the hosts were so delightful. Great conversation with all the guests too!
