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.

Thank you for a lovely stay!
I literally had the best one night stay at @whitefencesinnwatermill
It was so relaxing and nice. The air is golden, the hosts Liz and Eric are the most welcoming and warm people I’ve ever met. We had a blast at the Hamptons. Can’t wait to return. 😍 If in the NY area you should go too!

A Hidden Treasure in the Hamptons!!!

This is the second year we spent Memorial Day Weekend at White Fences Inn in Watermill. The Inn is simply wonderful - a sophisticated and contemporary environment offering spacious and beautiful rooms with luxury linens, Malin & Goetz bath products, a soaking tub, and even a small gas fireplace. A delicious and huge breakfast is served each morning in the stunning and comfy dining room or, in the nice weather, outside on the patio overlooking the 1 acre property and beautiful pool. Liz, the owner, is a fabulous cook and each morning we delighted in her treats - homemade baked goods, artfully presented fruit and yogurt, and her egg dishes - one morning a Kale Frittata, another - eggs on a home baked croissant with bacon and cheese. Every afternoon waiting in your room are also her home baked cookies!
Rather than feeling like you are staying at an Inn or hotel, you really feel more like you are a guest in the beautiful home of owners, Liz and Eric. They are both very gracious, hospitable and attentive to service. The property is well located a short distance from beaches, wineries, shops and restaurants in Southhampton, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. We will be back!!

We stayed at the White Fences Inn in April 2019 and everything was absolutely amazing! The house, the room, the breakfast offerings, the turn-down service, the location, the welcoming nature of the owners and their dog...there are not enough words to express how much we enjoyed our stay and we cannot wait to visit the White Fences Inn again in the future!

White Fences---A Gem in the Hamptons!

I recently had to go to the Hampton on business. At the last minute, my husband and I decided to stay overnight. I was thrilled that I was able to get a room! White Fences inn is charming and inviting. The hosts, Liz and Eric were so warm and inviting! It was perfect and quiet (the perfect get-away from the hustle of a busy life). The inn is contemporary, gorgeous and immaculate! The bedroom-- beautiful(very upscale-beachy) and HUGE!, Amazing King (very comfy bed), bathrobe, slippers. A superior 5-star room and bathroom-- deep bathtub, shower, a fireplace (which totally set the mood!). Breakfast in the morning was "to-die-for" --homemade Nutella Muffin, a Dutch Pancake with blueberries, fruit, and yogurt. Coffee was perfect (my husband, the tea drinker, found the perfect English Blend!). After breakfast, we went to the pool and hung out until we sadly had to leave!!! We will be back Thank you so much. In this world where hospitality is a lost art, Liz & Eric have re-invented it!!!
