The Mainstay is centrally located in Southampton, NY. It's easy to get to, and to beaches, and the town of Southampton. It's the bed and breakfast experience with the comfort and accessibility of a hotel. I would stay there again in a minute!

We had a great stay at the Mainstay in Southampton. Elizabeth is an accomodating and friendly innkeeper. The room was beautiful with plenty of space for our family of 4. The pool was a welcome relief and the town of Southampton was lovely. If we are ever in the neighborhood again, we will definitely stay there again. Not really close...

Mainstay B&B is in a perfect location. I wanted to visit Southampton for my birthday and I was very pleased. As this was my first visit to the area, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was not disappointed. Mainstay is at most a 7 minute drive to the beautiful Cooper's Beach, Main Street and Jobs Lane. I stayed in...

It was the second time that we stayed at the Mainstay and again we found everything just about perfect! Elizabeth is a wonderful host and it was a pleasure being her guests. The the good breakfast every morning, the wonderful garden with thousands of plants and flowers, the cooling pool, the lovingly furnished rooms are just one of the many...

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay during our first trip to the Hamptons. We came across the Mainstay via the web. The location seemed great and the prices very reasonable. When we called, Elizabeth was friendly and helpful. So here is what I have to report after a weekend at the Mainstay. - The location...

We were pleasantly surprised at our stay at the Mainstay. Our weekend at the Inn was teriffic! This is not your standard Bed & Breakfast. Elizabeth, the owner met us at the door and essentially informed us the Inn was our own place for the weekend. Beautifully decorated, the Inn has that warm and cozy feel that tells you this...

The Mainstay Inn is a hidden jewel, one of my most memorable places I’ve been to thus far. When you walk into The Mainstay, you’re not quite sure what to expect, but as soon as you meet Elizabeth the owner, you know you’re in good hands. We stayed in Room 5, The Master Suite. It has a very eclectic &...

My boyfriend and I decided to head to Southampton for the weekend. We enjoyed our accomodations, breakfast and the fabulous pool. I definitely would recommend this inn. You are guaranteed a clean and environmentally friendly room. The owner of the property is also very lovely and the resident poodle, Talula, is a doll.

If location is the key in buying real estate, it certainly also is the key in choosing a vacation destination. Mainstay's location in the heart of the Southampton estate area, just blocks from Gin Lane and the Ocean is the only place I would stay in the Hamptons. Not for me the noisy conjestion of Rt. 27, aka Montauk Highway....

The Mainstay is the best hidden secret of the Hamptons! Tucked into the estate neighborhood of Southampton, just a few miles from the beach and the beautiful town of Southampton you'll find The Mainstay. It's a beautiful classic house that continues to be made more beautiful each year by the home's owner/inn keeper. The feel of the B&B is that...
