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.

Excellent Retreat

Photo contains my summation. If going to the Hamptons then stay here. Accommodations and morning breakfast are both excellent. Location is great for all villages. The owners are your innkeepers and it shows.

Wonderful visit to the Hamptons and the White Fences Inn

My husband and I had a great three night stay at the White Fences Inn this week. We stayed in one of the suites. It was spacious, quiet and beautifully appointed. The innkeepers, Liz and Eric (and their dog, Bailey) were friendly and helpful. Liz’s breakfasts were so delicious and inventive. I especially loved the banana and Nutella muffins. When we told Liz we were leaving early on our departing morning and would miss breakfast, she told us she would leave us a breakfast treat to take on the road. She also left us to-go cups for our coffee and tea. What a thoughtful gesture! The White Fences Inn is centrally located for touring all the towns in the Hamptons. Sag Harbor is only a 15-20 minute drive away and a charming town with great restaurants and shops. There is a beautiful beach minutes from the Inn. I would highly recommend this charming Inn and the Hamptons.


We stayed at the White Fences Inn for four nights during mid-August 2019. At first, we were a bit apprehensive because, although we travel extensively around the world, we seldom stay at B&Bs. Our mindset quickly changed upon arrival. We were immediately at ease when we received a warm welcome from Bailey, saw the beautiful grounds and settled into our comfortable Mecox guest room. Aside from the great location and quintessential Hamptons setting, the best part of our stay was the hospitality and, of course, breakfast. Liz and Eric have combined their strengths to collectively deliver seamless and gracious White Fences Inn hospitality. We wish Liz and Eric continued success!
