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.

Beautiful Bed & Breakfast!
Reviewed 6 days ago

My husband and I stayed in this B&B when we came to town for a friend's beach wedding. I've always loved B&B's, so whenever I get a chance we stay in one. The decor of the house is wonderful. Modern, yet, still cosy looking. The breakfasts were amazing!! I think that's really where this B&B stands out among the others. We enjoyed two mornings of their amazing breakfasts and I wish we could have had more.
The bathroom in our room was gorgeous and all the little extras in the room were a wonderful touch.
My only issue was that their sweet dog was a little too rough when trying to play. Other than that, we had an amazing time!

Loved our stay!

This was our weekend getaway without our toddler and before baby #2 arrives. We had a great stay - the rooms were beautiful, modern and clean; the owners were extremely friendly and cooked incredible breakfasts every morning; and it was in a great location. Couldn’t be happier with our experience!

This is a beautiful property in a great Hamptons location. It is lovely and quiet if you want to get some quality downtime and use as a base to explore the Hamptons. The rooms are clean, and the fireplace in the bedroom is not only a nice touch, but very practical in the evening when it was cooler in April. The bathroom is huge with a great rain shower and separate bath with Malin and Goetz products. We had a large separate living area which has a sofa, television, Nespresso coffee machine and small fridge filled with still and sparkling water. We are not breakfast people, so didn't sample the morning offerings, but Liz always left delicious cookies in our room daily. We would definitely recommend the White Fences Inn, and would love to return some day soon. Oh and we also got a discount for a visit to the Wolffer Estate Vineyard, which was great - thankyou for a wonderful stay

This B&B was the best we have ever stayed in. The owners were just beautiful, nothing was too much trouble, they went out of their way to ensure our stay was extremely enjoyable. Daily breakfasts were delicious, something different every day. The home cooked treats left in our room every afternoon was just the icing on the cake.

Winter weekend at White Fences Inn
Reviewed 4 months ago

We had a wonderful long weekend at the White Fences Inn last January. We reserved the suite with two rooms for a quick trip with our NYC based daughter. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was huge. We loved the snack basket and wonderful toiletries. The proprietors are very warm and welcoming. We were in the Hamptons to search for a summer rental, and they called several friends on our behalf. The beds are the most comfortable ones we have ever slept on and we purchased one upon our return home. Breakfasts are not to be missed. We can't want to come back in the summer and enjoy the pool and lovely garden.
